A ‘point’ refuted 

Oh, really? One-celled organisms appeared long before the Cambrian. But maybe creationists don’t think single-celled organisms count as life? Fine. The phyla Porifera (sponges) and Cnidaria (jellyfish, etc.) both predate the Cambrian.

What zoologists call phyla, botanists call divisions. Flower plants are such a division, and they first appear in the Mesozoic — long after the Cambrian. All my statements are easily verifiable in geology books at your local library.

Since the Rev. Kern is using the Cambrian-explosion argument, he has conceded that geologists can determine what came before what in Earth’s history: One-celled organisms appeared before simple animals, which appeared before fish, which appeared before amphibians, which appeared before reptiles, which appeared before birds or mammals.

Indeed, during the Cambrian, there were no amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, insects or trees. In case you miss the point, the “science that contradicts evolution theory” is a pack of falsehoods, misunderstandings, logical fallacies and, indeed, lies.
