I stumbled upon a creationist article on the front page of a creationist website claiming that this cambrian fossil disproves evolution:
Because look, it’s so modern-looking! Can’t you tell!
Then I google the species and the first secular article I find on it begins:
“An ancient sea animal that looked like a flower had its anus right next to its mouth, a new fossil study finds.”
The creationist article left that part out, lol.
I don’t remember seeing any aquatic flower rectum creatures on the discovery channel.
Now granted there apparently are modern species that are related to these ones and while they aren’t remotely identical (the cambrian ones were a dozen times larger for instance) the basic body shape is similar but it’s just a silly example. When you have to lead with the asshole flower monster you know you’re in trouble.
I honestly don’t have an intellectual point, this just made me giggle for some reason.
