On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin discusses a recent fossil discovery that puts a kink in the evolutionary explanation of whales. Evolutionists claim that whales evolved from fully terrestrial mammals to fully aquatic ones in 5-10 million years. The new fossil find of a whale jaw bone shrinks that number considerably, making a shaky theory even shakier. Luskin explains that it’s highly unlikely that the number of changes needed for such a transformation could occur in such a small time period. “Mathematically speaking, it is not possible that an unguided Darwinian process could take a land mammal to a whale in such a short period of time.”

Read Luskin’s article on Evolution News & Views covering the recent fossil discovery.
