The Precambrian

Key Questions

  • Answer:

    All of the precambrian fossils lack evidence of hard parts. The lifeforms that existed in the Pre Cambrian were all soft bodied.

    Explanation:

    One of the great difficulties of the Neo Darwinian evolutionary theory is how to explain the "sudden" transition from the soft bodied life forms in the sedimentary layers called the Pre Cambrian to the vast variety of hard bodied life forms in the Cambrian.

    There are no transitional fossils indicating the predicted gradual changes from the soft bodied life forms in the PreCambrian to the hard bodied life forms in the Cambrian.
