One of the most severe biogeographical puzzles for Darwinian theory is the origin of South American monkeys, called “platyrrhines.”
One evolutionary scientist tried to pressure his readers by claiming “biologists today consider the common ancestry of all life a fact on par with the sphericity of the earth.”
When fossils failed to demonstrate that animals evolved from a common ancestor, evolutionary scientists turned to another type of evidence.
The origin of whales has been called a “poster child for macroevolution.”
In 2008, 16 biologists from around the world convened in Altenberg, Austria, to discuss problems with the modern neo-Darwinian model of evolution.
