Tetrapod footprint discovery busts evolutionary paradigm, says biochemist
The latest discovery of fossilised footprints made by four-legged vertebrates overthrows the evolutionary model for how land animals first emerged, says a biochemist.
"This is a huge discovery," said Dr. Fuz Rana of Reasons to Believe, a science-faith think tank. "[It's] another example of supposedly a well-established evolutionary story, that has presumable fossil evidence to support it, that is now blown out of the water by a single find."...
"Transitional forms are appearing in the fossil record after the appearance of the forms that they presumably evolved into and that simply doesn't make any sense," Rana said. "You have to take fossil record at face value. Evidence has to match the story."
"At this point there's no evolutionary explanation in my mind for how land animals appeared," he added. "People who are skeptics of the evolutionary paradigm are even more justifiable in their skepticism today than they were yesterday because of this particular discovery."
