While I do not suggest to have all of the answers, this sort of article keeps me ever skeptical that science has the answers either or that evolutionists in general—no matter how well-studied they claim to be on the subject—know what they are talking about. For instance, evolutionists will cite theory as being based on observable data and to that end, there were theories about Tyrannosaurus Rex. However, with the recent unveiling of Raptorex (Raptorex kriegsteini), some of those “theories” are being re-evaluated. It is evolution that is evolving.
Scientists had long thought that T.Rex’s large head and small upper “arms” had evolved over time but with the discovery of Raptorex, said to have predated T.Rex by 60 million years, that “theory” has been turned on its ear. The interpretation of the find suggests that between 125 million years ago in the days of Raptorex and 65 million years ago in the days of T.Rex—over a period of 60 million years—these dinosaurs survived, flourished, and evolved into their large forms and then died out due to an asteroid strike? As if in 60 million years, the earth was that stable and conducive to their existence? So scientists will go back to the drawing board for more conjecture as to how these creatures evolved.
You see, when a new discovery doesn’t bear out the theories, they are revised to make the pieces fit. And this is largely where I have a problem accepting this whole process as credible. It’s much like finding a jigsaw puzzle piece and trying to fit it into a puzzle that only has a few pieces assembled so far. The solver thinks he or she knows what the puzzle depicts—a mountain scene with aspen trees for instance—and suddenly finds another piece with an image of a palm tree. The solver now concludes that rather than this being a puzzle showing Aspen, Colorado, it must instead be from somewhere on the Pacific coast.
But why does the piece with the palm tree have to be the same puzzle? And if it doesn’t fit nicely, does it get crammed in anyway?
No wonder scientists are puzzled!
