Geological Time Table
it famous? Charles Darwin
1809-1882 Has this chart
been proven accurate?
"Since the time of
Darwin, paleontologists have found themselves confronted with
evidence that conflicts with gradualism, yet
the message of the fossil record has been ignored. This
strange circumstanceconstitutes a remarkable chapter in
the history of science, and gives students of the fossil record
cause for concern."
(The New Biology, page
The official geological
time table has been proven inaccurate, but has not been officially changed
since the 1800's.
"We have proffered a
collective tacit acceptance of the story of gradual adaptive change, a story
that strengthened and became more entrenched as the synthesis took hold. We
paleontologists have said that the history of life supports that
interpretation, all the while knowing it does not."
