This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Those Dang TetrapodsOnce again, the evidence flies in the face of evolutionary (i.e., neo-Darwinian) theory. Or, does it? A new discovery in Poland (see here or here) places the oldest tetrapod several million years earlier than the supposed transitional forms that biologists have been touting […]
