One of the most severe biogeographical puzzles for Darwinian theory is the origin of South American monkeys, called “platyrrhines.”
Problem 7: Convergent Evolution Challenges Darwinism and Destroys the Logic Behind Common Ancestry
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.”
Problem 6: Molecular Biology Has Failed to Yield a Grand “Tree of Life”
When fossils failed to demonstrate that animals evolved from a common ancestor, evolutionary scientists turned to another type of evidence.
Problem 5: Abrupt Appearance of Species in the Fossil Record Does Not Support Darwinian Evolution
The origin of whales has been called a “poster child for macroevolution.”
