Rhino-Elephant Fossil Upsets Evolutionary Timeline

When tales are told around campfires, people tend to expect flaws. Sometimes they point them out.

"I seen him pull his 44-40 revolver and sneak after Clem —"

"You said this was a pitch dark night so ya didn't see nothin', ya galoot."

"Fergot to mention I was using my night vision..."

The timeline for the evolution of dinosaurs is driven by the narrative, even though there is no evolutionary past for dinosaurs and new discoveries require evolutionists to repeatedly rewrite that troubled timeline. We have another instance of a major timeline problem.

A large critter called a synapsid is causing disagreement and confusion among paleontologists.

The tale is told that there were little mammals running around while dinosaurs were becoming the dominant force. These little mammals did their best to keep out of sight. Critters like synapsids existed, but when something that could be compared to a military tank was discovered, paleontologists got a mite worked up. They can't agree if it's mammal or reptile, and the description is caused (for some) to be dictated by where the fossil was located. Actually, there isn't a whole heap to build on in the first place. The fossil record is not about an orderly account of gradual evolution due to "forces", but it shows evidence for the global Genesis Flood and recent creation.
Evolutionists call them “mammal-like reptiles,” but a very large fossil synapsid upsets evolutionary ideas.
It was as big as a hippo, and apparently very successful as an animal. New Scientist writes, “Ancient hippo-like reptile was a giant to rival the dinosaurs.” Science Magazine writes, “Giant mammal cousin rivaled early dinosaurs.” What was this creature, exactly? And why are evolutionists so startled by it?
