Boom! There goes the “exquisitely documented” evolution of turtles. Sorry, Professor Dave.
If you look closely at beach sand, you may find some grains that stand out. They are shaped like spirals, stars, or striated cones.
New fossils continue to put pressure on the evolutionary narrative of gradualism.
The new evidence is very ambiguous and totally inconclusive. No far-reaching conclusions should be drawn from such dubious material.
