If this is the best answer evolutionists can come up with, it’s game over for Darwinism.
Recently, a team of British paleontologists added a new pseudo-explanation.
If you ever encounter a horseshoe crab on the beach, you are a looking at a creature that would not have appeared out of place hundreds of millions of years ago.
In a physical world there will be design constraints, so it is only realistic to expect tradeoffs.
Obviously, evolutionary “laws” are quite malleable and have to give way when they become too cumbersome.
