5. Fossil Specimens Discovered in China, Australia and New Zealand

Fossil Specimens Discovered in China

China map

Various mountain formations occupy an important place in the geological history of Asia. The Himalayas are some of the world's youngest mountains, and the large numbers of marine invertebrate fossils discovered on the feet of the Himalayas show that these strata were once covered in water.

The Asian continent's most important fossil beds lie in China. Those in the West Liaoning, Yunnan and Shandong regions are the richest in China. A large number of fossils of bird species, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, insects and plants have been obtained from these regions. Once again, every fossil proves that living things never underwent any process of evolution and reveals the evident nature of God's creation.

Special fauna (animals belonging to a particular region or period) have been identified in the Yixian and Jiufotang formations in the Liaoning region. Both Formations contain fossils largely dating from the Cretaceous Period (146 to 65 million years ago).

The Chengjiang Formation in the Yunnan region is exceedingly important in showing the variety of life in the Cambrian Period (543 to 490 million years ago). In this formation are found a large number of fossil species such as seaweeds, anemones, sponges, trilobites, other trilobite-like arthropods, annelids and other varieties of worm—more fossils that deal a lethal blow to the theory of evolution. They show that living things that emerged in the Cambrian possessed various complex features, closely resembled modern-day life forms, and sometimes possessed even more privileged, specialized characteristics. This undermines all the claims made by evolutionists to the effect that present-day life forms evolved from supposedly primitive living things.

Liaoning, fossil areaa: One of the rock layers in Liaoning contains fossils.
b: Following the researches made in the Liaoning fossil area, many samples were uncovered that invalidate the theory of evolution. One of the rock strata is pictured.
c: The fossil excavations made in Beipiao. Some flowered plant fossils found in this region are the oldest.

fossil, mayfly

Mayfly

Age: 125 million years old
Size: 20 millimeters (0.8 in); matrix: 118 millimeters (4.6 in) by 68 millimeters (2.7 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province of China
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

This fossil mayfly pictured is an example of a living fossil. This 125-million-year-old specimen, identical with the modern-day mayflies, invalidates the evolutionists' claims.

 

scorpion fly, fossil

Scorpion Fly

Age: 125 million years old
Size: Wings, 19 millimeters (0.8 in); matrix: 75 millimeters (3 in) by 95 millimeters (3.7 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province of China
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

The scorpion fly is a small insect with an average wing length of 50 millimeters (2 in). Due to the organ in its abdomen resembling a scorpion's stinger, it is nicknamed the "scorpion fly."

The fossil pictured is 125 million years old. Scorpion flies of 125 million years ago are no different from those alive today. This clearly shows that like all other living creatures, scorpion flies have not evolved.

 

cranefly, gnat, fossil

Cranefly

Age: 128 million years old
Size: 12 millimeters (0.5 in); wings 9 millimeters (0.4 in); matrix: 72 millimeters (2.8 in) by 48 millimeters (1.9 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province of China
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

A cranefly, resembling a giant gnat or mosquito, has a structure very different from true gnats. Its major feature is its quite long legs, generally twice as long as its body.

As all other living creatures, craneflies appear as fossils with structures identical to those of our day. That no difference exists between today's craneflies and those of millions of years ago proves that living beings never evolved.

 

larvae, froghopper, fossil

Froghopper

Age: 125 million years old
Size: 23 millimeters (0.9 in); matrix: 80 millimeters (3.2 in) by 80 millimeters (3.2 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province of China
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

The larvae of a froghopper, which is classified in the family Cercopidae, are enveloped in a protective frothy secretion.

There exists no difference between modern froghoppers and those that lived millions of years ago. Despite millions of years that have passed, these insects remain the same, manifesting that living beings have not undergone evolution.

 

plant, fossil, fly, planthoppers, planthopper

Planthopper

Age: 125 million years old
Size: 17 millimeters (0.7 in); matrix: 60 millimeters (2.4 in) by 46 millimeters (1.8 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

The adults of these plant-feeding insects are of two different species. One can fly, while the other cannot. The structures of these two species have not changed for millions of years. All the complex structures and systems of today's insects were also possessed by planthoppers living millions of years ago. During all those millions of years, these features have remained the same, indicating that the evolutionary process claimed by Darwinists never took place.

 

fossil, fungus gnat

Fungus Gnat

Age: 128 million years old
Size: 8 millimeters (0.3 in) long with wings of 5 millimeters (0.2 in); matrix: 77 millimeters (3 in) by 50 millimeters (2 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

Fungus gnats belonging to the Sciaridae family live especially in damp places, preferring lower parts of plants that are closer to soil.

The fossil fungus gnat pictured is 128 million years old. Fungus gnats that lived millions of years ago are just as those of our day. Fossil records show that fungus gnats have always remained the same, refuting the claim that they evolved from other living beings.

 

fossil, salamander, China

Salamander

Age: 125 million years old
Size: salamander: 11 centimeters (4.3 in) by 6 centimeters (2.4 in) long; matrix: 29.6 centimeters (11.7 in)
Location: Huludao City, Liaoning Province
Formation: Jiufotang Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

This fossil salamander uncovered in China is the world's oldest known salamander. As a result of some sudden volcanic eruption, fossil remains are often very well preserved under a layer of ash, so well that it is even possible to detect some of their soft tissues and the last food they ate.

These fossil salamanders are no different from those alive in our day. Amphibians that remain unchanged for hundreds of millions of years once again demonstrate that evolutionists are wrong.

 

fossil, sturgeon, evolution

Sturgeon

Age: 144 to 127 million years old
Size: 48 centimeters (19 in)
Location: Sihetun, Beipiao City, Liaoning Province
Formation: Jiulongsong Member, Chaomidianzi Formation (Jehol Group)

So far, no one has found an intermediate link to prove the so-called evolution of living creatures. This is also true for the so-called "evolution" of fish. All different classes of fish appear suddenly in the fossil record, and without any ancestors. There are hundreds of thousands of invertebrate fossils, hundreds of thousands of fish fossils, but not one single intermediate "missing link" fossil. One example showing that fish have always been fish is this 144- to 127-million-year-old fossil sturgeon.

 

Darwinists, turtle, fossil

Turtle

Age: 146 to 65 million years old
Size: Matrix: 17.5 centimeters (7 in) by 21 centimeters (8.3 in)
Location: Lingyuan, Liaoning Province
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Cretaceous

Scientific facts reveal that living creatures have not evolved, but Darwinists insist on ignoring this. The 146- to 65-million-year-old turtle fossil pictured, which is identical with the turtles of our day, once again stresses what Darwinists are reluctant to see: Living beings have not changed for millions of years. In other words, they have not evolved.

 

mayflies, mayfly, Fossils

Mayfly

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: body: 3.3 centimeters (1.3 in); matrix: 7.6 centimeters (3 in) by 10 centimeters (4 in)
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province
Period: Upper Jurassic

Like all other insects, mayflies exhibit the same characteristics and systems they had at the moment they first appeared. Fossils reveal that mayflies have not gone through any intermediate stages. Mayflies that lived 156 to 150 million years ago are the same as those mayflies living today.

This fossil is also of two parts, showing both its positive structure and its negative cast.

 

salamanders, fossil

Salamander

Age: 208 to 65 million years old
Size: 4.5 centimeters (1.8 in)
Location: Liaoning Province
Period: Jurassic – Cretaceous

The 208-65-million-year-old fossil salamander pictured shows that salamanders have existed without changing for millions of years. This fossil, which is no different from salamanders today, is evidence that the evolutionary process suggested by Darwinists has never existed.

This fossil presents itself as positive and negative.

 

örümce ve fosili

Spider

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: 1.5 centimeters (0.6 in) (leg to leg ), 0.7 centimeters (0.28 in) (body )
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province, China
Period: Upper Jurassic

The oldest known fossil spider is of a water spider, 425 million years old. The fossil pictured is 156 to 150 million years old. Such fossils show that spiders have been the same for hundreds of million years. Darwinists have no consistent and scientific answer for these findings.

This spider fossil, 156 to 150 million years old, consists of two halves.

 

kerevit ve fosili

Crayfish

Age: 128 million years old
Size: 1.) 109 millimeters (4.3 in) long; matrix: 158 millimeters (6.2 in) by 165 millimeters (6.5 in),
2.) 109 millimeters (4.3 in) long; matrix: 180 millimeters (7.1 in) by 160 millimeters (6.3 in)
Location: Lingyuan, Liaoning Province
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

Crayfish are freshwater crustaceans resembling lobsters. For millions of years, they have preserved their structure. The fact that crayfish of 128 million years ago and those living today are the same is a situation that Darwinists fail to explain. Fossils reveal the truth that living creatures are created by God.

 

Yusufçuk ve fosili

Dragonfly

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: wingspan: 11.4 centimeters (4.5 in); body: 7.6 centimeters (3 in); matrix:16.5 centimeters (6.5 in) by 13.7 centimeters (5.4 in)
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province
Period: Upper Jurassic

Leading helicopter manufacturers analyze the wing structures and flight mechanisms of dragonflies while designing their craft. The dragonfly's advanced flight mechanism that ensures efficient use of its wing structure also existed 150 million years ago. Dragonfly fossils that are hundreds of millions of years old pose an inexplicable situation for Darwinists and refute Darwinists' claims.

 

kurt kafatası ve fosili

Wolf Skull

Age: 20 million years old
Size: 25 centimeters (10 in)
Location: Asia
Period: Miocene

Fossils of mammals also deny evolution. The fossil wolf skull pictured is 20 million years old. Wolves have preserved their structures for 20 million years, proving that the theory of evolution is invalid.

 

Liaoningoris kuşu ve fosili

Liaoningornis

Age: 140 million years
Size: matrix: 16 centimeters ( 6.3 in) by 17 centimeters (6.7 in)
Location: Sihetun Shangyuan, Beipiao City, Liaoning, China
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Upper Jurassic, Lower Cretaceous

Various fossil birds found in China are among the evidence showing that birds have always been birds and that they did not evolve from any other creature. Darwinists claim that birds evolved from reptiles, but they lack any evidence to prove this claim. All fossil specimens gathered over the past 150 years show that evolutionists' claims are entirely groundless. The 140-million-year-old fossil bird pictured once again proves this fact.

 

kaplumbağa ve fosili

Juvenile Turtle

Age: 120 million years old
Size: 18 centimeters (7 in)
Location: Sihetun, Shangyuan, Beipiao City, Liaoning Province
Formation: Lower Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

 

"… the origin of this highly successful order is obscured by the lack of early fossils, although turtles leave more and better fossil remains than do other vertebrates. … Intermediates between turtles and cotylosaurs, ... reptiles from which turtles [supposedly] sprang, are entirely lacking." (Encyclopaedia Britannica Online, "Turtle")
The turtle fossil (120 million years old) pictured proves that turtles have not evolved from other living beings, have not gone through any intermediate stages, and that they have been the same for millions of years.

 

 

mersin balığı ve fosili

Sturgeon

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: 22 centimeters (8.5 in)
Location: Peipiao, Liaoning Province
Formation: Jiufotang Formation
Period: Upper Jurassic

Sturgeons belong to a class of fish that has 20 different species in Euope, Asia and North America. They spend most of their lives in seas, and in certain seasons gather in rivers.

There exists no difference between sturgeons that lived 156 to 150 million years ago and those alive today. The fossil record reveals that ancestors of fish were fish, ancestors of birds were birds, and ancestors of human beings were entirely human. In other words, all living beings appeared with their distinctive and perfect structures. The Almighty God created them.

 

bitki böceği ve fosili

Planthopper

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province
Period: Upper Jurassic

Insects whose structures have not changed in 150 million years totally refute the so-called evolution of living creatures from primitive to advanced forms. The structures that plant insects displayed 150 million years ago, 120 million years ago, and today are all the same.

 

timsah ve fosili

Crocodile

Age: 100 million years old
Size: 76 centimeters (30 in)
Location: Asia
Period: Cretaceous

Crocodiles have left many fossils behind. Their bodies emerged all of a sudden in flawless form (crocodile fossils date back 140 million years) and have reached the present day without undergoing any changes. There exists no difference between the 100-million-year-old crocodile pictured and a counterpart living today, which stresses this fact once again.

 

mersin balığı ve fosili

Sturgeon

Age: 130 million years old
Size: 11.6 centimeters (4.6 in)
Location: Liaoning Province
Period: Cretaceous

Sturgeons living 130 million years ago have the same features as sturgeons that lived 146 million or 120 million years ago, or those alive today. Despite the passage of millions of years, sturgeons did not undergo any intermediate stages and thus refute evolutionists' claims.

This sturgeon, 130 million years old, presents itself as positive and negative.

 

kara balık ve fosili

Black Fish

Age: 54 to 37 million years old
Size: 10 centimeters (4 in)
Location: Hubei, China
Period: Eocene

This is a fish that still lives along North Atlantic shores. Like all other living things, fish have remained unchanged for millions of years—in other words, they have not evolved. Black fish 54- to -37 million years old are no different from those of our own day.

This pair of fossils is between 54 and 37 million years old.

 

kaplumbağa ve fosili

Turtle

Age: 150 million years old
Location: China
Period: Jurassic

If a living being preserves the same structure it had 150 million years ago, then this indicates that Darwinists' claim that living beings evolved gradually during long periods of time is unscientific. Turtles that remained unchanged over hundreds of millions of years have not evolved, but were created.

 

sırtlan kafatası ve fosili

Hyena Skull

Age: 10 to 5 million years old
Size: 20 centimeters (8 in)
Location: Gansu Province, China
Period: Upper Miocene

Included in today's Hyaenidae family, there exist four different types of hyenas. These animals live in clans of approximately 80 hyenas.

The fossil hyena skull pictured is 10 to 5 million years old and shows that for millions of years, hyenas have not changed.

 

mersin balığı ve fosili

Sturgeon

Age: 146 to 65 million years old
Size: 20 centimeters (7.7 in); matrix: 23 centimeters (9 in) by 29 centimeters (11.5 in)
Location: Sihetun, Beipiao City, Liaoning Province
Formation: Jiulongsong Member, Chaomidianzi Formation (Jehol Group)
Period: Cretaceous

Fossils show that like all other classes of living creatures, fish also appeared suddenly with all their structures and with their perfect anatomy. An example is this 146- to 65-million-year-old fossil sturgeon which is no different from sturgeons in our own day.

 

hamam  böceği ve fosili

Cockroach

Age: 125 million years old
Size: 26 millimeters (1 in); matrix: 85 millimeters (3.3 in) by 77 millimeters (3 in)
Location: Chao Yang, Liaoning Province
Formation: Yixian Formation
Period: Lower Cretaceous

Insects are arthropods belonging to the Insecta class. The oldest insect fossils date from the Devonian Period (417 to 354 million years ago). However, during the more recent Carboniferous Period (354 to 290 million years ago) various kinds of insects appeared all of a sudden. For instance, cockroaches appear suddenly complete with the structures they still have today. Betty Faber of the American Museum of Natural History says that 350-million-year-old cockroach fossils are identical with those of today. (M. Kusinitz, Science World, 4 February 1983, p. 1.)

The 125-million-year-old fossil in the picture is evidence that cockroaches have not evolved for hundreds of millions years.

 

mayıs sineği larvası ve fosili

Mayfly Larva

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Formation: Yixian Formation
Location: Liaoning Province
Period: Late Jurassic

As short-lived adults, mayflies live only for a few days, and some even for a few hours. The fossil pictured belongs to a mayfly larva. Today's mayflies and those that lived 156 to 150 million years ago are no different.

 

kaplan kafatası ve fosili

Tiger Skull

Age: 20 million years old
Size: 29 centimeters (11.5 in)
Location: Asia
Period: Miocene

The tiger is a mammal of the Felidae family. 80 percent of the tiger species live in the Indian Peninsula.

The fossil tiger skull in the picture is 20 million years old and displays the same features as tigers living today. For millions of years, their bone structure has remained the same, refuting the theory of evolution.

 

gergedan kafatası ve fosili

Rhino Skull

Age: 20 million years old
Size: 51 centimeters (20 in)
Location: Asia
Period: Miocene

Rhinos of the Rhinocerotidae family generally live in Africa and Asia, but have not changed for millions of years. The 20-million-year-old rhino skull pictured shows that rhinos have remained the same for millions of years.

 

mayıs sineği larvası ve fosili

Mayfly Larva

Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Formation: Yixian Formation
Location: Liaoning Province
Period: Late Jurassic

Mayfly larvae alive today and ones that are 156 to 150 million years old are the same, showing that evolution is a scenario not based on science.

New Zealand map

Fossil Specimens Discovered in New Zealand

The great majority of fossils from New Zealand belong to marine life forms. A large number of exceedingly well-preserved specimens belong to various marine phyla. Fossils from the Cretaceous Period are frequently encountered, together with others—albeit more rarely—from the Cambrian, Ordovician and Permian periods. In addition to animal fossils, various plant fossils from the Jurassic Period, extending unchanged right up to the present day, have also been unearthed.

New Zealand's fossil variety reveals exactly what all other fossil records reveal. No fossils at all have been discovered that might support the theory of evolution. All the discoveries show that living things came into being suddenly, with all their complex structures. In other words, they were created and remained unchanged for hundreds of millions of years. They never evolved.

 

New Zealand Various types of moss living in Rotorua's thermal springs in New Zealand have remained unchanged almost from the beginning of the Earth's history.
Pictured is the New Zealand shale worn away by glaciers. Shales are the metamorphic rocks formed in the depths of the Earth during the collusion of continents. (small picture)

Fossil Specimens Discovered in Australia

Australia map

In Australia there are a large number of fossil fields, some of which the United Nations regards as historic preservation sites.

Australia and Antarctica are estimated to have separated from the giant continent of Gondwanaland some 40 to 30 million years ago. The climatic changes that subsequently took place over long periods of time are among the events that led to such large numbers and varieties of fossils in Australia. The many fossils obtained from the island country's fossil fields are important in our understanding of species diversity. Riversleigh, Bluff Downs, Murgon, Lightning Ridge and Naracoorte are some of the best known of these fossil fields.

A wide range and large number of well-preserved animals of the Cenozoic Era (65 million years to the present), from small frogs to kangaroos, have been obtained from these fields. In addition to these, which provide important information about the history of vertebrates, fossils of marine life forms dating back to the Paleozoic Era (543 to 251 million years ago) have also been discovered.

Australia, geologic structure, Windjana Gorge The biology of Australia is distinctive. Big reptiles and marsupials are common, whereas its vegetation is characterized with plants with thick and sticky leaves resistant to drought.
Windjana Gorge, with a geologic structure 350 million years old, is located in North Australia. This structure that once remained under an ocean contains many fossils from the Devonian Period. (small picture)

 

at kuyrugu bitkisi ve fosili

Horsetail

Age: 248 to 206 million years
Location: Australia
Period: Triassic

There is not the slightest difference between horsetail that existed some 200 million years ago and those living today. If a living thing has preserved its entire structure for 200 million years, without undergoing the slightest change, then it is impossible to speak of it having evolved. That impossibility applies to all life forms and species. Fossils, which document history of life, refute evolution.

 

yengec ve fosili

Crab

Age: 23 to 5 million years old
Location: New Zealand
Period: Miocene

Evidence that crabs have always been crabs and have not evolved is this 23- to 5-million-year-old fossil crab. This specimen and those crabs of our day share the same features, which shows that these living beings were created by God.
