The "whale of the Cambrian," a large filter-feeding anomalocarid, has been brought to science’s attention.
Unexpected complexity, what did you expect? Meanwhile, the transcriptome of another “simple organism,” the sea anemone, was studied by researchers. Guess what?
Stephen Meyer likes to quote the characterization of a form of madness as “reasoning correctly from false premises.”
The sheer number of new papers attributing the rise of Cambrian animals to oxygen is weird. Could it be chance that these are all coming out months after the release of Darwin’s Doubt?
There’s nothing about lower oxygen levels on Earth that would forbid the rise of early animals.
