Wow, that’s cool, they not only found the elusive Ediacaran animals but even could unravel their genomes!?
A former teacher of mine was the late Adolf Seilacher, who was a leading authority on trace fossils and who for obvious reasons preferred to be called “Dolf.”
Evolutionists would expect to find sponges as the earliest animals in the fossil record.
Ikaria wariootia is just another problematic Ediacaran fossil that could be anything from inorganic artifact to protozoan to cnidarian and yes, maybe a bilaterian worm.
