Here are two very interesting updates to my recent articles on alleged Ediacaran animals and the Cambrian Explosion.
Evans et al. (2021) seem to have been well aware of the circular reasoning in their argument.
Even Evans et al. (2021) themselves admitt that “phylogenetic affinities for most of the Ediacara Biota remain enigmatic.”
Wow, that’s cool, they not only found the elusive Ediacaran animals but even could unravel their genomes!?
None of the Cambrian animal phyla is represented in the Ediacaran fossil record.
