I've been thinking about the human fossil in the preCambrian senario.
If such a thing were found, would it falsify the TOE in it's entirety? Or would it stand to the side as an unexplained annomaly?
Would it mearly put a really big dent in the TOE?
After all, there still would be a massive amount of valid scientific support for the TOE.

Unless a valid explanation could be found for the presence of
the remains in a stratum in which it should NOT exist, it would
disprove evolution.
Finding remains TOO RECENTLY says nothing about evolution, only
about supposed extinction dates.
Finding remains TOO EARLY says that the whole evolutionary tree
is wrong.
