The fish was no bigger in size than today’s average smart-phone. It swam in the region it was found in 60 million years ago right after the asteroid strike wiped out the dinosaurs. This is why this discovery is seen by scientists as “an evolutionary puzzle”. However, Edgar Nernberg refuses to believe in the data provided by scientists as he is a creationist. The find can’t convince him as he also detailed in an interview when he was asked if he is ready to embrace the fact that the five-fossil fish is that old: “No, it hasn’t changed my mind. We all have the same evidence, and it’s just a matter of how you interpret it”
For young Earth creationists it is certain that the Universe and Life originate “from specific acts of divine creation”. They also take Biblical literalism to the Genesis creation narrative and the rejection of the theory of evolution. Thus from their point of view the creation took six literal days about 6000 years ago. This is why according to the museum Nernberg supports, it couldn’t have happened that we had fish 60 million years ago after dinosaurs were dead, as dinosaurs and humans roamed Earth around the same time.
