 A 69 year-old, geochemist/geologist is challenging the current paradigms.

From "Ancient Fossils Suggest Complex Life Evolved on Land"

Evidence from Southwestern deserts suggests that oxygen-breathing organisms arose on land rather than in the seas.

'Over a wilderness campfire the night before our climb to the cave, the soft-spoken Knauth confided that he enjoys challenging the prevailing paradigms in science and plans to keep it up. "In my old age, I am so disappointed that people close their minds and jump on whatever splashy, simplistic bandwagon is in vogue," he said. "But if you start with the rocks and work upward to an interpretation, it often reveals a reality that is not the one in vogue." '

and

'He is also convinced that multicellular oxygen breathers — the ancestors of modern animals — may well have lived in and fed upon photosynthesizing microbes that were spewing millions of tons of oxygen into the atmosphere. In fact, rather than these Precambrian animals (called metazoans) colonizing land tens of millions of years after the Cambrian explosion of life in the seas, Knauth thinks that the reverse may have occurred; land-based animals crawled into the sea, spawning marine metazoans with shells.'

    The only politically correct religion in circles of those who are labeled scientists, is unquestioning faith in one or more of the evolution theories.

    So much so, that it is politically incorrect to refer to evolution any longer as a theory, which it remains, lest the speaker or writer be accused of the heresy of being to any degree skeptical that life began randomly without the assistance and work of the highest intelligence.
