History Upheaval: How Old Is the Earth and Its Species?

History Upheaval: How Old Is the Earth and Its Species?

As reported by phys.org, the results are “sure to jostle, if not overturn, more than one settled idea about how evolution unfolds.” In addition to a shocking absence of genetic diversity, the authors were stunned to conclude that about 9 out of every 10 species on Earth appear to have come into being at about the same time, apparently sometime between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago. Study co-author David Thaler said of the findings, “This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.” One unavoidable possibility these results raise is articulated in the phys.org report, which asks, “Was there some catastrophic event 200,000 years ago that nearly wiped the slate clean?”
