The Question Darwin Couldn’t Answer

When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain – the Cambrian Explosion, during which many species suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. We explore the mystery with Stephen Meyer.
