The premise of this article is flawed. The conclusions are equally flawed.

If evolution is true, life would have started out simple and then evolved in complexity over time.

The premise is false. We still have bacteria and other single-celled organisms. Evolution does not result in more complex organisms, it results in organisms that are better at surviving in their ecological niche, though the mechanism of less-capable organisms dying off. An organism that does well-enough in its niche will stay mostly unchanged.

....and tomorrow, millions of scientists will go to work and add thousands of new data points that support a world and a universe older than 6,000 years....

Junk non-science in copious largesse.

The Pre-Cambrian resulted an an amazing variety of experimental multi-lateral body arrangements, whereas an intervening major extinction event/s resulted in the loss of the diversity and the survival of a preference fr the bilateral symmetry. The article is painfully false in its many assertions.

The problem for paleontologists is that the supposedly 520 million year old creature looks exactly like its living counterparts, only up to 8 eight times larger.

When a lifeform becomes successful there is no need for it to evolve any more. Size can be accounted for by availability of food sources and numbers of the creatures competing for them.

Since God created them, I'm sure He will explain it all to us someday.

Therefore (!) evolution; doesn’t always: proceed: gradually…? occasionally the – change / is swift? (:)
(poorly punctuated equilibrium)

the fossils found are NOT the only examples of extremely ancient fossils with extremely close cousins living today

“evolution” theory is not ONLY about some species having “evolved” from some earlier apparently different species, it also is about why some species (or some members of a species) change very little or not at all over long periods of time

if the premise of the article (its assumption of what evolution theory was saying) was true, then no ancient life form would have any extremely close relatives living today (all species “evolve” into something else and disappear), and no living life forms would have any extremely close relatives in ancient fossil records, at least not in any recognizable form (too “evolved” today to recognize the relationships) - but (1) that is not a premise of evolution theory and (2) neither of those conditions are true

now, on the lighter side

whera are all our great pranksters, for comments on the anatomy of the fossilized creature shown in the artistic rendering of it
