A report on the Science Daily web site on 30 August, 2007, discussed a soldier beetle that had been trapped in amber while squirting out poison to repel an attacker. The fossil in question dated back 100 million years, and this provided important information about these insects and their chemical equipment and also invalidated evolutionary scenarios on the subject.
"You have a prehistoric insect being attacked, using its defenses to ward off the predator and the whole event becoming captured in action as sap flowed down a tree. It"s quite remarkable." [i]
This event captured in amber represents significant evidence in terms of the collapse of evolutionary theory. Poinar indicates this as follows:
"This particular insect is now extinct, but the broader family of soldier beetles still exists, and they still use this same type of chemical defense mechanism, That this type of defense has been preserved through 100 million years of (so-called) evolution is evidence that it works pretty well." (our emphasis)
The term "evolutionary process," is of course a requirement of Darwinist conjecture. The evolutionist Poinar is amazed to state that such a mechanism dates back as far as 100 million years, and emphasizes that 100 million years ago there was a perfectly functioning system that had never undergone any transitional stages. This is important evidence that evolution never actually happened.
The mechanism by which insects squirt out a chemical substance to protect themselves from attackers is an example of irreducible complexity. It is impossible for the system to come about in stages, and there is no evidence in the fossil record that it did so. Quite the contrary, the fossil record shows that, as in this example, the extraordinary mechanism in question has been functioning in the same way for 100 million years.
Poinar explains this as follows:
"This beetle was able to exude a sticky chemical substance that was irritating to potential predators, and caused them to go away or leave it alone, It could even conserve its excretions and control the direction of the defense; in other words, produce the substance only on its left rear side if that was where the attack was coming from."
This flawless and rational system is essential to the animal"s survival, and the fact that it existed 100 million years ago demolishes all the claims of the theory of evolution. According to the theory, 100 million years ago there should not even have been any soldier beetles. This date pushes back Darwinist scenarios regarding the supposed evolution of these insects back by a further 60 million years.
This brand new fossil discovery once more eliminates, in various regards, the false claims of the theory of evolution. Insects had the same form millions of years ago, with the same irreducibly complex features and equipment, as they do today. Therefore, this finding that demonstrates that evolution never happened has also totally buried the theory in question.
The invalidity of imaginary Darwinist mechanisms was clearly realized in the wake of the discovery of the science of genetics. The fossil record provides examples of complex life forms with perfect structures or those living today. The theory of evolution is not now something that can be espoused or even debated. Because the theory, devoid of one single shred of evidence in its favour, has been irretrievably defeated and invalidated in the face of these emerging facts. As evolutionist scientific magazines and web sites have finally begun to admit, the fossil remains that have survived down to the present day have invalidated all speculation regarding evolution. That being the case, the espousal of evolution, portraying something non-existent as if it had actually happened, is incompatible with science and scientific honesty. Living things were brought into being from nothing and are the flawless works of Allah (God), our Almighty Lord. The scientific evidence makes this crystal clear.
