Finding new fossils has been added to an ever growing complexity in the evolutionary time frame. Some fossils are discovered in the wrong place, at the wrong time period and in the wrong order. Evolutionary paleontologists were forced to fit these fossils in various ways into a phylogenetic tree to accommodate the ‘theory’ of evolution.
For example, a story in Live Science wants us to believe that triceratops were island hopping. Why? Because these horned dinosaurs which are commonly found in the Gobi Desert were recently discovered in Europe. The question is, how did they get there? Live Science reports a pretty imagination solution…
“Judging by skeletal features, the closest relatives of these horned dinosaurs come from the Gobi Desert. Their ancestors might have swum westward from island to island, or they might have walked to these areas when the islands were landlocked, only to get separated later when sea levels rose, Osi said.”
Xing Xu known for his work on trying to prove dino to birds commented on this new fossil found in Europe in a science journal called; Nature. He started out by saying there are large gaps in the fossil record: “Reconstructing the historical distribution of Earth’s fauna and flora is a challenging task, not least because of the incomplete, often poorly dated, nature of the fossil record,” he said. “Such problems are particularly severe with respect to European biogeography in the Late Cretaceous period (about 100 million to 65 million years ago), when Europe was an archipelago.”
Indeed, the abrupt appearance of all the animals without evolutionary precursors as well as being in the wrong place at the wrong time has really been a problem trying to put together a consistent fossil record for evolutionists. Here is another interesting find…
National Geographic known for it’s hype on fossils writes a story about the oldest human fossil even though there wasn’t enough bone to make a valid reconstruction. It also claims the human was a tree swinger cannibal who used tools (and perhaps, fire) in our ancestry.
National Geographic went on to speculate that this human was able to communicate through language and was intelligent. What is really fascinating when one looks closer at this. How could these humans walk on earth for almost 800,000 years using tools and having a language but never thought of inventing the wheel, planting crops, building a city, riding a horse, or even writing his own thoughts down till it exploded into existence around 3500 B.C?
The philosophy of evolution is not science rather it’s just fitting the data into a particular framework whether it makes sense or not, perhaps even have faith that somehow all this complexity will come together as one. History has bared this out, the more things change, the more they remind the same. The pattern of adding more and more complexity to evolution will continue as more questions keep popping up as the data is not fitting the framework.
