No, really, this is what their headline reads (if not redacted): “Chinese microscopic fossil find challenges Darwin’s theory”
Apparently, they are allowed to talk that way in China. Fancy.
The Cambria explosion proved that most major animal phyla were fully developed in this relatively short time. This troubled Darwin because the absence of transitional forms has always been problematic for his theory. Darwin had hoped that these intermediates would appear in the fossil record but this has not happened. Evolutionists say that these “missing links” were either too small or too soft-bodied to be fossilised in the pre-Cambrian layer.
What is more troubling for Darwin’s theory is the Chinese discovery of microscopic fossils of soft sponge embryos in this pre-Cambrian layer without any intermediate species. Zhou Zhonghe incorrectly states that “early Cambrian sites in China, such as Chengjiang , provided transitional species that filled missing gaps” and “all fossil records in China support Darwin’s theory”. One of the world’s leading researchers on the Cambria explosion is Chen Junyuan from the Nanjing Institute of Palaeontology and he said that his fossil discoveries in China show that “Darwin’s tree is a reverse cone shape”. A senior research fellow at Chengjiang Fauna [fossil site], said, “I do not believe the animals developed gradually from the bottom up, I think they suddenly appeared”.
As a medical professional and former atheist, I ignorantly believed that Darwin’s evolutionary theory was a scientific fact. …
Well, no, it was how some people thought they could force court judgements out of ignorant Westerners, to mandate teaching Darwinism in tax-supported schools.
