Based on the same fossil evidence, there is obviously much room for speculation and quite different opinions.
John Kimber collected the first fossils of this organism and died tragically at age 38 during an expedition in South Australia in 1964.
If identified as an animal, it would “predate the Cambrian explosion of bilaterian animal phyla as a kind of ‘advance guard.’”
It could be anything, from a coelenterate-grade or sponge-grade organism to even a protist or an alga.
Evolutionists would expect to find sponges as the earliest animals in the fossil record.
