Darwin’s Dilemma Solved? (Part 2 of 2)
How can evolutionists explain the Cambrian Explosion? This is the Creation Moments Minute.
As we saw last time, some scientists have tried to get around the dilemma by estimating that the rate of evolution during the “Cambrian explosion” was five times faster than it is today. ScienceDaily states with great confidence, “The findings … resolve ‘Darwin’s dilemma’: the sudden appearance of a plethora of modern animal groups in the fossil record during the early Cambrian period.”
Is the assertion that evolution happened five times faster than today really reasonable? No, it isn’t. In fact, it only creates another dilemma for evolutionists who have always insisted on uniformitarianism – that the rates of natural processes do not change over time. Darwin’s dilemma remains unsolved for evolutionists. But there’s no dilemma for creationists who know that God created all living creatures on days five and six of Creation Week.
