    Well...

    I'd suggest it was due to God or Alien's.

    Pretty sure the scientists will come up with a sciency answer.

    I don't expect them to come to Jesus.

    Saw a theory that the earth was hit by a GRB.

    A GRB is like a neutron bomb -it kills or mutates the animals but doesn't disturb the environment.

    I remember what a friend told me once about a fungus that no one had ever seen before that was growing from a small meteor that had just fallen. they researched this kind of thing for a living.

    So all the niches in the environment (90%) got refilled overnight - and nobody noticed from the fossil record?

    Gee, what does that tell us?

    Its a bump in the theory of Darwin.

    More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

    Your God created s lot of animals for you to eat ?

    I bet if you do some digging the headline is highly inaccurate and the study doesn’t say that at all.

    I think they say

    The simple hypothesis is that the same explanation offered for the sequence variation found among modern humans applies
    equally to the modern populations of essentially all other animal species. Namely that the extant population, no matter what its current size or similarity to fossils of any age, has expanded from mitochondrial uniformity within the past 200,000 years.

    Now we need some here to decipher the meaning of ^^ compared to Mr. Casuals headline

    I'm a chart member of PETA.

    I go the the meat section of the grocery store and echo Richard Dreyfuss in "Let it Ride":




    I bet if you do some digging the headline is highly accurate and the study does say exactly that.

    Then you don't understand the study.

    Do you understand the study???

    Do you understand what "the sequence gap among clusters is empty, i.e., intermediates are not found." means?

    Someone skipped a few levels ahead in evolution ?

    Now, lets hear your understanding

    There were most likely periods of an explosive outpouring in evolution of types and variations of plants, then later animals, perhaps both occurring together in some cases, then a leveling off...I don't know about ninety percent of animals appearing all at once, sounds like creation theory to me, not evolution...

    I tend to agree that this sounds like a creationist line of thinking.
