Explosion in the Cambrian

Universal common ancestor evolutionary conjectures require purposeless, gradual progressions from simple to complex life forms. Since this supposedly takes millions or billions of Darwin years, there should be a wagon-trainload of transitional fossils so y'all can trace the development of organisms. Not happening, old son.


The Cambrian Explosion is troubling to secular scientists because organisms are fully formed, not simple or transitional.

One of the most troubling areas for secular geologists is a little thing called the Cambrian Explosion. Most of the major phyla appeared in this low layer, and they were fully formed. (One owlhoot tried to wave off the Cambrian Explosion as a bunch of simple aquatic lifeforms. The overwhelming majority of fossils are sea organisms, and they are not simple at all.) More than diversity of life forms, we see disparity. This is not predicted by evolution, but refutes it and supports special creation. Worse for uniformitarian deep time beliefs, the Cambrian Explosion supports the global Genesis Flood. (If some tinhorn tells you that the Flood is fiction, he's lying, and that's a natural fact.) Yippie ky yay, evolutionists!
Many have been told that the fossil record provided Darwin with overwhelming evidence for his theory of evolution. Nothing could be further from the truth! In his book, On the Origin of Species, he admitted that the absence of fossil transitional forms was a major problem, and one that was “undoubtedly of the gravest nature”.
Such was the overwhelming and conspicuous absence of transitional fossils, many leading 19th century naturalists had concluded that species were fixed in their form and couldn’t change. Darwin himself wrote that “all the most eminent palaeontologists [people who study fossils], namely Cuvier, Owen, Agassiz, Barrande, Falconer, E. Forbes, &c. … have unanimously, often vehemently, maintained the immutability [i.e. unchangeable nature or ‘fixity’] of species.”
