On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about a new study which determined that Precambrian microfossils could not have been evolutionary ancestors of the complex animals that appear in the Cambrian explosion. Previously, Darwinian paleontologists believed these fossils were multicellular animal embryos, but computer tomographic analysis has now shown they were single-celled algae-like organisms. As Boze and Luskin explain, they cannot be the solution to “Darwin’s Dilemma.”
