Response Article
This article (Cambrian explosion shows all kinds of life appearing suddenly (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.


Claim CC300:

Complex life forms appear suddenly in the Cambrian explosion, with no ancestral fossils.

CreationWiki response:

  1. Talk.Origins misses the point. The point is not the Cambrian explosion itself, but the total lack of any fossils between single cell life and complex multi-cellular life.
  2. A few complex multi-cellular fossils found below the Cambrian explosion does not change the fact that there are no transitional fossils between single cell life and complex multi-cellular life.
  3. Talk.Origins' excuses do not change the fact that there are no fossils between single cell life and complex multi-cellular life.
  4. The claim that early multi-cellular life was too small to be found and too soft to fossilize is bogus since fossil bacteria have been found in Precambrian rock despite being soft and smaller.
  5. The claim that molecular evidence shows some animal phyla to be Precambrian assumes evolution and as such it can't be used as evidence that it has occurred. It is still a fact that there are no fossils between single cell life and complex multi-cellular life.
