Fosil Specimens of Plants (2/2)

Willow Leaf

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Green River Formation, Utah, USA

Willow trees have always existed as willow trees throughout the course of geologic time. They are not descended from any other plant and have never transformed into any other species throughout the course of their long existence. There is no trace of a "half-willow half-oak", or "half-willow half-maple" species in the fossil record—because such intermediate forms never existed.

The 50-million-willow leaf pictured here clearly shows that the evolutionists' idea that plants evolved is a figment of their imaginations. Fossils are proof that evolution never happened, and that the origin of life is Creation.

Fern (with its pair)

Age: 300 million years
Period: Carboniferous
Location: Mazon Creek, Illinois, USA

Paleontological findings prove that ferns, like all other living things, did not emerge by way of evolution and that, on the contrary, they were created. Many contemporary scientists accept that the fossil record supports Creation rather than evolution, and that intermediate life forms exist only in evolutionists' imaginations. The evolutionist Hoimar von Ditfurth, author of the book Im Anfang war der Wasserstoff, says:

"When we look behind us we see that there is no need to be surprised by the way we have failed to find any of the intermediate forms sought for in an almost painful manner. Because in all probability, no such intermediate stage ever existed."

One of the findings confirming von Ditfurth's comment is the 300-million-year-old fern fossil pictured here.

Beech Leaf

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Tranquille Shale, British Columbia, Canada

Despite all the research and enormous labor and means expended over the last 150 years, no findings of any kind have been unearthed that might support the theory of evolution. If such a thing as evolution had in fact taken place, then countless proofs have been discovered by now. Indeed, many scientists since Darwin's day have admitted there should be a large quantity of evidence, but that it has never been found.

On the other hand, countless findings and proofs reveal that Creation is a manifest truth. One of these is the fossil specimen pictured here, which proves that beech trees have not changed over 50 million years.

Fern

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

There are around 250 species of fern, as the one pictured here, which is a member of the genus Dryopteris. Comparison reveals that there is no difference between this fossilized fern, approximately 58 million years old, and ferns living today.

This 58-million-year old fossil fern is one of the proofs that invalidates the myth of plant evolution. Like other living things, plants appeared suddenly and remained unchanged for millions of years. In other words, they did not evolve, but were created.

Honeysuckle Leaf

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

The absence of any differences between the 58-million-year-old honeysuckle leaf pictured here and those alive today is a sufficient response by itself to evolutionist claims.

One of the major predicaments that confronts scientists espousing the scenario of plant evolution is the lack of even a single intermediate-form fossil. There are no "primitive" plant fossils with half-developed systems. To date, no evidence has been produced that one plant is the ancestor of any other. Therefore, family trees purporting to show the supposed evolution of plants are entirely imaginary, with no scientific basis to them at all.

Fern

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

Fern fossils demonstrate that no evolutionary process ever took place and that living things have remained unchanged since they first came into existence. The fern fossil in the picture has not changed over 58 million years, and never evolved.

Plant species emerged suddenly and independently of one another, and there are no so-called evolutionary links between them. It is of course impossible for an infinite variety of plants to emerge from one single plant. All plants possess their own unique features. Their colors, tastes, shapes and methods of reproduction are all different, and they often exhibit exceedingly complex mechanisms, which cannot possibly have come into being by chance, as evolutionists maintain.

Birch Leaf

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

"Birch" is the common name given to members of the Betulaceae family. Birch trees prefer temperate climates, and their smooth bark is generally white or silvery grey in color. The descendants of the birch tree that left this fossilized leaf pictured here have not changed over millions of years, never evolved, and have preserved the original form in which they were created by Almighty God.

Fern

Sentinel Butte

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

One of the proofs that plants never underwent evolution in any form is the fossil fern pictured here. Many scientists state that plants have no common ancestor, and that all plant species appeared suddenly on Earth in the absence of any evolutionary process. If there were such a supposed "forerunner" species of the kind evolutionists claim, then evidence of this should be revealed by now. Moreover, it should be possible to explain through what stages plants diverged from this supposed ancestor. So far, however, no evolutionist has come forward able to offer any explanation in the light of concrete scientific findings. And none will do so in the future, either—because, contrary to what Darwinists maintain, plants never underwent such a process. Almighty and Omniscient God has created all plant species.

Honeysuckle Leaf

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

The theory of evolution is not supported by scientific findings and goes no further than being a fantasy, as is stated by a great many scientists. In an article published in the journal Developmental Biology in 1996, the evolutionist biologists Gilbert, Opitz and Raff describe how Darwin's theory of evolution is incapable of resolution:

"As Goodwin (1995) points out, 'the origin of species—Darwin's problem—remains unsolved.''' (Scott F. Gilbert, John M. Opitz and Rudolf A. Raff, "Resynthesizing Evolutionary and Developmental Biology," Developmental Biology, Vol. 173, article no. 0032, 1996, p. 361)

These words are an admission of the defeat suffered by the theory of evolution in the face of the scientific facts. The 58-million-year-old honeysuckle leaf pictured here once again makes this defeat plain for all to see.

Birch Leaf

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, North Dakota, USA

There are more than 500,000 known species of plant currently alive on Earth. Fossils of these same species are being unearthed one by one, and it is thus being proved that these plants never underwent evolution in any way. Since they first came into existence, they have remained the same right up to the present day.

A significant number of scientists have realized this fact and admit that the theory of evolution is now discredited. One of these is Paul Lemoine, a former president of the French Geological Society. He admits that evolutionist accounts are insufficient for both zoologists and botanists. Or to put it another way, these branches of science deny evolution:

"Our young people who enjoyed engaging in research regarding the theory of evolution have been deceived. A dogma was established which the whole world is still learning. Zoologists or botanists have determined that no account offered is satisfactory . . . The conclusion from this summary is that it is impossible for evolution to have taken place." (Introduction: De l'Evolution, Encyclopedie Francaise, Vol. 5, 1937, p. 6.)

Soapberry Leaf

This is a "two-faced" fossil whose traces can be seen on both surfaces of the split rock layers.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location:Nammoura, Haqel, Lebanon

The 95-million-year-old fossilized soapberry tree leaf pictured here is another of the proofs of Creation that evolutionists cannot explain. Every new fossil unearthed further confirms the fact of Creation and makes even more insoluble the dilemma in which evolutionists find themselves.

Soapberry Leaf

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

No fossil unearthed to date shows that soapberry leaves ever underwent evolution. All soapberry fossils have exactly the same characteristics as those living today. Evolutionists are unable to indicate any supposed evolutionary process or any supposed common ancestor for any living thing, not only for soapberries.

Fossil discoveries show that originally, all living species appeared suddenly on Earth. In other words, they were created. The evolutionist Douglas Futuyma admits this evidence as demonstrated by the fossil record in these words:

"The majority of major groups appear suddenly in the rocks, with virtually no evidence of transition from their ancestors. . . . Hence, the fossil record would be most inadequate exactly where we need it most—at the origin of major new groups of organisms." (D. Futuyma, Science on Trial: The Case for Evolution, New York: Pantheon Books, 1983, pp. 82-83)

Soapberry Leaf

This is a "two-faced" fossil whose traces can be seen on both surfaces of the split rock layers.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

In the same way as all other plants, soapberries have always existed as soapberries. Specimens obtained during fossil excavations prove as such. The many soapberry fossils discovered show that there is no difference between soapberries living 95 million years ago and those still alive today. This correspondence entirely does away with any claims of plant evolution.

Fern

Age: 354 to 290 million years
Period: Carboniferous
Location: Llewellyn Formation, Pennsylvania, USA

Some of the proofs that plants never evolved are the ferns that are so frequently encountered in the fossil record. No fossilized plant that can be regarded as the forerunner of ferns has so far been found. One of the facts revealed by the fossil record is that ferns emerged suddenly. In other words, they were created. Another fact that has emerged is that these ferns have never changed over the course of 300 million years, nor have they turned into any other species. Ferns that have remained the same for some 300 million years, clearly demonstrating that evolution is only a figment of the imagination.
