A Precambrian rabbit is a hypothetical fossil that anti-creationist-leaning scientists have given as an example of what could change their minds. It was originally stated by J.B.S. Haldane (1892–1964) but in certain circles, especially philosophy of science, has taken on a life of its own: a frenzy of speculation and other very typical academic activities. [1] [2]
