Oh, and by the way:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #19,378 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
#2 in Books > Science & Math > Biological Sciences > Paleontology
#3 in Books > Christian Books & Bibles > Theology > Creationism
#9 in Books > Science & Math > Evolution > Organic

And this hardly matters any more, but if anyone still cares, Christian Darwin groups still cluck tongues over Darwin’s Doubt. World moves on.

Dear News, Only one of these papers is about the "Cambrian explosion" (the review letter by Xingliang Zhang, which contains a brief description, one page long, of the early Cambrian Xiazhuang Assemblage). One other paper (Xiao et al.) is about the Ediacaran, and so arguably has some possible relevance to what happened later in the Cambrian). The remaining eight papers have nothing to do the Cambrian explosion or the Cambrian as such. You might want to change the title of the OP. Piotr
