a particularly significant episode in evolutionary history, characterized by the "sudden" appearance of many of today's extant fauna. alternatively, when in the company of drunk evolutionary biologists, it can be used to refer to an explosive orgasm .
yo, did you hear what dan said to that pregnant woman at the darwin party? he kept repeating, "i'm going to have a cambrian explosion all over your face". man, was he wasted.
A smelly dirty hole in the shadows of the welsh mountains. there are many strange liquid concoctions here but none are palatable.
"whats that smell?"
"its probably coming from the cambrian"
Def. To completely obliterate all competition in sporting events/competitions. To make a timolgra look slow.
Ex1. Yer maun just done a forry on the rest of those clowns.
Ex2. He's as fast as Forry.
Ex3. I like Forry cake.
1. A ancient character of history who proposed an alternate theory to creation (destroyed by modern archeology)
2. A genius who proposed the theory that put God out of job.
1. What are you, a fucking Naturalist? Creatures didn't appear by "continuous slight modifications" you fuck, think about the Cambrian explosion.
2.The descent is a brilliant book. It shows a man well ahead of his time.
A lie. For example, did you know that:more...
a)In the early Earth, there was not the right conditions for long enough (if they existed)for life to appear.Jim Brooks mentions this in his book "Origins of Life"
b) It has been reported that "80 to 85% of Earth's land surface does not have even 3 geologic periods appearing in 'correct' consecutive order" for Evolution. Recently, fish scales were found in the “Cambrian layer” when according to the evolutionary column, fish did not appear until much later.
c) World population growth rate in recent times is about 2% per year. Practicable application of growth rate throughout human history would be about half that number. Wars, disease, famine, etc. have wiped out approximately one third of the population on average every 82 years. Application of this on an evolutionary time scale runs into major difficulties. Starting with one "couple" just 41,000 years ago would give us a total population of 2 x 10 to the power of 89. The universe does not have space to hold so many bodies.
d)Rick Ramashing and Sir Fred Hoyle calculated the probability for one cell to evolve by chance. The atheist/agnostic team found to their disbelief that it is 1 chance in 10 to the 40,000th power years just for one cell to evolve. Hoyle said, "The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that 'a tornado sweeping through a junk-yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.'
Smaller sized male of the pre-Cambrian Order Mammalian. Has tendancy to waffle while communicating and possesses striking similarities to star-faced mole and emniotic fluid covered infant. When matured to adulthood, this creature has innate ability to annoy and pester those in its surroundings. Natural attraction for ridicule.
The office bewley showed up today, asked dumb questions and then was laughed at.
The Earth's most recent epoch, one marked by an explosion in the human population along with all which will likely come with it:
-Deposits in the Earth's strata coming from such products & byproducts as plastics, concrete, asphalt, metal alloys, radioactive and other toxic wastes as well as everything else added by our modern industrial and post-industrial civilization.
-What will likely be the Earth's 6th largest mass extinction
In just two centuries, we humans have wrought such vast and unprecedented changes to our biosphere that we actually might be ushering in a new geological time interval, and will alter the planet for millions of years.
Zalasiewicz, Williams, Steffen and Crutzen contend that recent human activity, including stunning population growth, sprawling megacities and increased use of fossil fuels, have changed the planet to such an extent that we are entering what they call the Anthropocene (New Man) Epoch.
First proposed by Crutzen more than a decade ago, the term Anthropocene has provoked controversy. However, as more potential consequences of human activity -- such as global climate change and sharp increases in plant and animal extinctions -- have emerged, Crutzen's term has gained support. Currently, the worldwide geological community is formally considering whether the Anthropocene should join the Jurassic, Cambrian and other more familiar units on the Geological Time Scale.
