Another Phylum Found in Cambrian Explosion
Fossils of members of phylum entoprocta, known from the Jurassic, are now found in Cambrian strata in abundance.
The oldest certain fossils from phylum entoprocta are in Jurassic strata, claimed by evolutionists to be 145 million years old. In 1977, A fossil from the Burgess Shale (Cambrian) was claimed by Simon Conway Morris to be an entoproct, but others denied it (see Wikipedia). Now, according to Live Science, hundreds of clearly-identifiable entoprocts have been found in Cambrian strata in China, dated in the evolutionary scale at 520 million years old – three and a half times older than previously assumed.
The fossils show tulip-shaped animals that were attached to the seafloor by a stalk. The tulip part contains a U-shaped digestive tract, with mouth and anus side by side. Tentacles allowed the animals to filter feed as they swayed in the current.
According to reporter Stephanie Pappas, the fossil animals have a body plan that is “almost identical” to living species – except that the fossils were up to 8 times larger – as much as 56 mm. Also, “Unlike what is found in living entoprocts, the stem and flowerlike feeding cup of the ancient creature were covered by tiny hardened protuberances called sclerites, which may have formed a sort of hard exoskeleton for the creatures.”
OK, evolutionists: it’s time to face up to the fossil evidence. Here is another example of an animal phylum appearing suddenly in the oldest layers containing multicellular animals. It bursts onto the scene, fully formed, and doesn’t change its basic body plan for 520 million years! This is true of virtually all the animal phyla now. How does that fit with Darwin’s theory?
Stephanie Pappas tried to protect Darwin by claiming the creature was “likely an ancestor of a group known as the entoprocta.” Come on. Don’t put us on. How can this be an ancestor, when it was larger and more complex than the modern counterparts? That would put Darwin’s tree upside down. and where’s the evolution? Its body plan is virtually identical to the living ones – no evolution in 520 million years in your mythical timeline.
Let’s stop playing games and protecting Charlie in a phony King’s X zone. His theory has been falsified (see the documentary Darwin’s Dilemma for more proof of that). He himself considered the sudden appearance of animals as the greatest challenge to his theory. He hoped new fossils would fill in the gaps, but 150 years of global research has only made the problem worse. His time is up; he’s struck out. Take him out of the science books, and put him in the history books. His tale should be told as a sad case of The Biggest Loser who misled the world for a century and a half.
