The utter mendacity of the Institute for Creation Research

https://vimeo.com/122747540 (as posted on the ICR Facebook page)
That SAME graphic (the one shown at the start of the video and where red lines and the words 'Cambrian Explosion' have been added) also appears higher up on their Facebook page - and it is labelled by the ICR as the 'Fossil Record'!

Yeah right - so fossils of humans, apes, dinosaurs, rabbits etc etc have all been found in Cambrian layers have they, ICR?

These people are evil.

Did a quick check of their website.
http://www.icr.org/research/team
Almost all these people (their 'science team') have 'Dr' in front of their name (although sometimes further delving is informative ie they may have attended a creationist 'university' or might even have 'bought' a title). But if they really all do have the scientific qualification that 'Dr' implies they should know better - and probably are deliberately denying facts they dislike rather than simply 'accidentally' disseminating false information about eg the fossil record over time (I took 'fossil record' to mean the REAL fossil record not some YEC interpretation that almost all fossils are the 'same' age and therefore humans and dinosaurs were already existing in the 'Cambrian').

The ICR is no longer an accredited university so its PhDs are worthless. Indeed, they were always bogus in that it fiddled the accreditation process when it was based in California.
