This is nothing short of a spectacular vindication of Stephen Meyer’s perspective in Darwin’s Doubt.
The top-down pattern of appearance of animal phyla during the Cambrian explosion represents major conflicting evidence for Darwinian evolution.
Here are findings about Cambrian and Precambrian strata, and how evolutionists keep dodging the implications of rapid emergence of complex designs.
Animal forms come and go, but what links them as “acts of mind” (as Agassiz put it) is a “continuity of ideas,” not, says Meyer, the physical continuity that Darwin asserted.
He built up to his final act of treason against politically correct expectations with his last book, The Kingdom of Speech, a repudiation of Darwinism.
