Paper Lays to Rest "Vernanimalcula," Supposed Precambrian Ancestor of Bilaterian Animals

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about the Precambrian fossil Vernanimalcula, which was thought to be the proof that Darwinists needed to refute the idea of the Cambrian explosion--the idea that life exploded in complexity during a specific period of time. Vernanimalcula was thought to be the Precambrian ancestor of all bilaterian animals, dating back to tens of millions of years prior to the Cambrian explosion. However, a new article published in Evolution & Development has concluded that "There is no evidential basis for interpreting Vernanimalcula as an animal, let alone a bilaterian."
