Evolution by Sudden Genetic Modification?

A new fossil discovery reveals the enigma of a reptilian creature whose body took a sudden shape change.

It is believed that this may lead to proof of modular evolution. The difference between modular evolution and evolution is that the subject appears to be missing the intermediary links in its developmental changes. In other words, this is a sudden manifestation of structure change or alteration, rather than something that happens gradually over a period of time.


The new creature, dubbed Darwinopterus (for “Darwin’s wing”), falls within the time gap but looks like it was Frankensteined together from parts of both its ancestors and descendants.


“It’s as if someone said, ‘Let’s nail these two together and make a sort of chimera, that’ll really confuse everybody,’” says Dave Unwin of the University of Leicester in England, who coauthored a paper reporting the findings online October 14 in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Unwin and colleagues uncovered more than 20 skeletons in northeast China earlier this year. Dating to around 160 million years ago,....

Good find!

Many have talked about these possible "evolutionary jumps,"(including the 2012 brigade!)-

Its a shame the finds have been dated to 160 million years ago,as I was thinking that if this jump had occured in a time when humans made fired ceramics we could check the magnetic field of the earth at the time,to see if there may be a relationship between them.

Maybe there is some other way of finding this information out though.

I wonder if this incident above will be revealed as controlled genetic intervention by aliens?

Is it possible that these things are coming to light as evidence that humans are about to undergo a quantum leap themselves?

I wonder if transhumanism is the next reality?

See the amazing head changes in these before and after sketches:

Did the head and neck evolve at a different rate from the rest of the body?

This winged dinosaur was believed to be an aerial predator. Was it's body not suited to it's function? Did it's body require changes to survive in its environment?

How could this world and it's creatures have been created perfectly if there is a need to constantly fine-tune the creations?

Are life forms a deliberate "work in progress" by our creators?

Or is it a natural ability of a species to adapt to changes to insure survival ?
