Fossil Specimens of Land Animals (1/2)
Age: 80 million years
Evolutionist efforts to portray the supposed evolutionary ancestor of the tiger are pointless. Fossils have proven that tigers are not descended from any other life form, but have always existed as tigers. The fossil pictured shows that tigers living 80 million years ago were identical to those alive today, effectively silencing all evolutionist claims to the contrary.
Living things did not emerge as the result of mutation and chance. Almighty God, Lord of sublime creative power, has created all life forms.
Age: 85 million years
In the fossil record, there is no trace of living things gradually acquiring the characteristics they possess—which refutes the idea of evolution. For example, there is not a single hyena fossil with one eye socket formed and the other not, with a semi-developed jaw or with skull deformations and defects. All the hyena fossils discovered show that hyenas that lived tens of millions of years in the past had exactly the same features as those alive today. The obvious implication of this is that living things never evolved, but were created.
Age: 85 million years
These members of the family Ursidae are carnivorous mammals. Today, spectacled bears survive only in South America. Like pandas, they are on the verge of becoming extinct.
This Andean bear fossil, in which all the details of the skull have been preserved, reveals that this species has remained the same at all times. The tooth structure, eye sockets, jaw structure etc. of this animal that lived 85 million years ago all reveal that spectacled bears have remained unchanged for tens of millions of years, in other words, that they never evolved. The fact revealed by this and other fossil discoveries is that Creation, not blind coincidences, represents the origin of living things.
Golden Monkey Skull
Age: 36 million years
As a basis for claiming that human beings are descended from apes, Darwinists point to the imitative ability of certain species of monkey. Monkeys are able to mimic actions and behavior they see, but this does not allow them to eventually evolve into human beings. If it did, then other species of animal also known to be intelligent should also have become possessed of human attributes. Parrots, for example, are also able to mimic human speech. Therefore, according to Darwinists’ nonsensical claims, there must be a greater likelihood of parrots developing human speech.
Countless findings, such as the 36-million-year-old monkey skull illustrated here, prove that living things have always remained the same, have never changed, and never developed into any other life form—and that it’s meaningless to insist on such illogical claims.
Age: 83 million years
If evolutionist claims were true, then there should once have been a very odd creature bearing features of both the antelope and some other life form. These animals, of which there is no trace in the fossil record, should immediately be identifiable, due to their sharing characteristics belonging to two different species, and should also exhibit an example of the supposed forebear-descendent relationship claimed by evolutionists. Yet not one single such intermediate form has ever been exhibited in evolutionist publications, which are filled with countless other myths and fictitious scenarios.
That is because no such fossil exists. And that is in turn because no such life form ever existed at any time.
Like the 83-million-year-old antelope in the picture, all living things have come down to the present day in exactly the same form in which they were first created. Natural history refutes evolutionist claims.
Age: 80 million years
Fossil findings are one of the countless proofs that Creation is a manifest truth. The 80-million-year-old wolf skull in the illustration, for example, is one of life forms that never changed over the course of millions of years. This is proof that it was created, and that evolution never happened.
Evolutionists, on the other hand, have no evidence to support their theories One would expect evolutionists to display some three to five intermediate-form fossils that support their claims, if they actually possessed any. If they cannot do that, and never will be able to, then they have to explain why they have portrayed their illusions as reality for so many years.
The time has now come for Darwinists to stop fantasizing and see the truth in the face of the millions of fossils that prove Creation.
Age: 5 million years
As has already been made clear, the theory of evolution claims that various imaginary life forms emerged from the seas and by way of incremental changes, became reptiles; and that birds then evolved from reptiles. According to the same scenario, reptiles are the forerunners not only of birds, but also of mammals. But the hypothesis that reptiles evolved into mammals has no scientific basis, as the fossil record shows. Despite all the excavations carried out to date, not a single intermediate form linking reptiles to mammals has ever been found. Nor can any such transitional form be discovered in the future, because no such life form ever existed. That is why the evolutionist Roger Lewin was forced to write that "The transition to the first mammal, ... is still an enigma." (Roger Lewin, "Bones of Mammals’ Ancestors Fleshed Out," Science, Volume 212, 26 June 1981, p. 1492)
Age: 33 million years
If Darwinists’ claims were true, then an odd-looking rabbit fossil with a skull as yet partly developed, with only half ears and a half jaw, should have been found in the excavations carried out so far. But no such semi-developed rabbit fossil has ever been seen. Every rabbit fossil discovered has fully formed, and flawless characteristics, just like the 33-million-year fossil pictured. That being the case, it is meaningless for Darwinists to persist in their claims, since the fossil findings do not support them.
The fact revealed by science is not evolution, but Creation.
Age: 5 to 1.8 million years
The fox is a species of mammal belonging to the family Canidae (canines). The fox skull in the illustration is around 5 million years old and possesses exactly the same features as modern-day foxes. Every new fossil discovery demolishes evolutionist beliefs and obliges evolutionists to come up with new scenarios, since all fossils unearthed to date are incompatible with their imaginings. But their new scenarios are immediately refuted, and evolutionists continue to strive in vain.
Age: 12 to 7 million years
With its teeth, skull and jaw structure, the raccoon fossil pictured is identical to present-day raccoons. This once again demonstrates that living things have remained in the exact state in which they first appear in the fossil record—in other words, that they have never evolved. Living fossils show that life forms did not evolve, but were created.
Species did not acquire their present bodily structures by undergoing the chance-based process of change, as maintained by evolutionists. They were all flawlessly created by Almighty God, and have persisted in exactly the same form as that in which they were first created throughout the course of their survival time on Earth.
Age: 100 million years
The jaw structure of this 100-million-year-old baby crocodile discovered in the Guangdong region of China has been very well preserved. There is clearly no difference between this fossil skull and those of crocodiles alive today.
If a life form has undergone not even the slightest change over the course of 100 million years, then it is impossible to support the myth of living things having evolved.
Age: 23 to 5 million years
The 23- to 5-million-year-old hyena skull fossil pictured is one of the proofs that all life forms emerged suddenly and independently on this Earth. This well-preserved hyena fossil is identical to modern-day specimens in terms of its jaw, eye sockets, incisor teeth and all other anatomical details. Evolutionists despair in the face of such fossils as this, and every new fossil discovered merely adds to their despair many times over.
Age: 70 to 40 million years
The intermediate-form fossils sought by evolutionists for so many years have never been found. Yet every day brings with it new fossils revealing the fact of Creation. One example of this is the fossilized zebra skull pictured, whose tooth and jaw structure is identical to those of zebras living today, once again confirming that the theory of evolution is a grave deception and that God has created all living things.
Age: 50 million years
The 50-million-year-old fossil pictured is evidence that, like all other living things, antelopes did not undergo evolution. If evolutionists’ claims were true, then antelopes should have developed various different features over the intervening 50 million years and be very different from today’s antelopes. Yet antelopes today have exactly the same characteristics as they did the moment they were first created—which fact demolishes the idea of evolution.
Age: 90 million years
One of those subjects on which Darwinists are at a complete impasse is the origin of mammals. Evolutionists cannot offer any evidence for the origin of mammals and the supposed evolutionary family relationships between the animals in this class. Statements by George Gaylord Simpson, one of the 20th century’s leading evolutionists, show the great predicament facing the theory of evolution is:
Age: 50 million years
Antelopes, members of the family Bovidae, are some of the fastest-moving terrestrial life forms. There are around 90 species of antelope. According to the fossil record, the living things in this class all emerged suddenly. Moreover, the mammals that emerged in this way are all very different from one another. Very different life forms, such as bats, horses, rats and whales, are all mammals and all emerged during the same geological period.
It is impossible, by any stretch of the imagination, to establish any evolutionary connection between these living things. Yet in the theory of evolution, "experts" do attempt the impossible and mislead the public by portraying nonsense as scientific fact.
Age: 89 million years
In claiming that mammals are descended from reptiles, Darwinists point to fossils of certain reptiles that are now extinct. The fact that these creatures are extinct lets Darwinists engage in whatever speculations they like. However, scientific research and investigation has revealed the invalidity of their claims. For example, as a result of the investigation of the brains of such reptiles, it was concluded that these life forms did not possess mammalian characteristics, but bore a complete resemblance to reptiles.
The fossil record has also revealed that the different mammal species emerged with all the characteristics they possess and never changed thereafter. The nearly 90-million-year-old tiger fossil pictured, identical to present-day specimens, is one of the proofs that evolution never happened.
Age: 89 million years
Location: Gan Su, He Zheng Area, China
The so-called "mammal-like reptiles" that evolutionists point to as the supposed forerunners of mammals are separate life forms that are now extinct. But these have neither a common ancestor with mammals, nor did they change into any other life form.
Evolutionist George Gaylord Simpson admits how mammals appear suddenly in the fossil record:
Age: 89 million years
Mammals always appear as mammals in the fossil record, and reptiles always as reptiles. No concrete findings indicate that the one very different life form ever turned into the other. Evolutionists may dream to their hearts’ content, but fossils will never make those dreams a reality. As revealed by the 90-million-year old tiger fossil in the picture, living things did not evolve. All things, living or inanimate, are the work of God, the Lord of all the worlds.
Age: 120 million years
The claims made by evolutionists concerning the origin of mammals consist of a great many irrational and illogical scenarios. These, unsupported by any scientific findings, they use as propaganda materials. They may of course produce and use such hypotheses as they like, but it is wrong to portray them as scientific. In the words of the biologist Pierre Paul Grassé, "there is no law against daydreaming, but science must not indulge in it." (Pierre Paul Grassé, Evolution of Living Organisms, New York: Academic Press, 1977, p. 103)
Age: 80 million years
Evolutionists who came after Darwin, who said, "I cannot conceive any existing reptile being converted into a mammal" (Francis Darwin, The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, Vol. II, New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1888), have also been unable to provide any convincing scientific account of the origin of mammals, despite all the advances in science and technology.
Roger Lewin admits as much in the words "The transition to the first mammal, ... is still an enigma." (Roger Lewin, "Bones of Mammals’ Ancestors Fleshed Out," Science, Vol. 212, 26 June, 1981, p. 1492)
Like this 80-million-year-old hyena fossil pictured, countless fossil specimens have condemned Darwinists to the hopeless position they are in now.
Age: 9.5 million years
One of greatest difficulties Darwinists face in accounting for the origin of mammals is the enormous diversity within that group. No findings support their imaginary family relations between mammals, which biologists now divide into very different groups—a fact admitted by the great majority of scientists.
For example, the evolutionist zoologist Eric Lombard admits: "Those searching for specific information useful in constructing phylogenies of mammalian taxa will be disappointed." (R. Eric Lombard, "Review of Evolutionary Principles of the Mammalian Middle Ear, Gerald Fleischer," Evolution, Vol. 33, December 1979, p. 1230)
