The Latest Fossil Claim Of The Theory Of Evolution
Has Also Become History
The theory of evolution met a crushing defeat in palaeontology as well in biochemical topics such as genes, DNA and the cell systems. Fossils demonstrate that living species did not evolve from each other, but were created separately with their individual specific characteristics.
According to the theory of evolution, all living species evolved from one another. A previously-existing species turned into another species over time and all species came into being in this manner. According to the theory, this transformation has been over a very long period of hundreds of millions of years and proceeded gradually.
In that case, numerous "intermediary species" should have originated and lived within this long alleged transformation period.
For instance, some half-fish/half-reptiles should have lived in the past which had acquired some reptilian traits in addition to the fish traits they already had. Or some reptile-birds should have originated which had acquired some bird traits in addition to the reptilian traits they already had. Since they were in a transitory period, they had to be crippled, deficient, and defective living beings. Evolutionists refer to these theoretical creatures, which they believe to have lived in the past, as "transitional forms".
If such animals had really existed in the past, there should be millions and even billions of them in number and variety. Darwinism is shattered right at this point, because there is not a single trace of these imaginary "intermediate transitional forms".
This fact has been known for a long time. Yet evolutionists speculated on a few fossils, trying to present them as "intermediate transitional forms" and comforted themselves saying, "only a few intermediate forms have been found so far, but in the future all of them will be unearthed". The most important fossil presented as an intermediate form was a 150-million-year-old extinct bird fossil called Archaeopteryx. Evolutionists claimed that this bird had reptilian traits. Despite the fact that their claims have been refuted one by one and that it has been proved that Archaeopteryx was not an intermediate transitional form but a flying bird species, they desperately embraced this last fossil they had.
"Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution"
At last, a fossil discovered during recent weeks, definitely overthrew this last hope of evolutionists. As quoted from the evolutionist sources, a fossil was discovered which revealed that the ancient ancestor of birds was not a dinosaur or any other living being but a bird.
News about this discovery first appeared in the world media on June 23, 2000, in New York Times with the headline "Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution". This article was about a bird which was recently unearthed in the Middle East. Prominent scientific journals such as Science and Nature and the world-renowned TV station BBC announced the recent developments as follows: "It has been discovered that the fossil, which is unearthed in the Middle East and estimated to have lived 220 million years ago, is covered with feathers, has a wishbone just like Archaeopteryx and modern birds do, and there are hollow shafts in its feathers. THIS INVALIDATES THE CLAIMS THAT ARCHAEOPTERYX IS THE ANCESTOR OF BIRDS, because the fossil discovered is 75 million years older than Archaeopteryx. This means that A REAL BIRD WITH ALL ITS CHARACTERISTIC FEATURES ALREADY EXISTED 75 MILLION YEARS BEFORE THE CREATURE WHICH WAS ALLEGED TO BE THE ANCESTOR OF BIRDS."

A Milestone in the History of the Palaeontology
The admission by evolutionists themselves that Archaeopteryx is not an "intermediate transitional form" to serve as evidence for evolution is an important milestone in the history of palaeontology. This is because for about 150 years, Archaeopteryx has continued to be the most prominent among the very few so-called "intermediate transitional forms" evolutionists could advance. However, this door of escape is also closed now, and the world of palaeontology has had to face the plain truth that there is not even a single fossil which can provide evidence for evolution.
The outcomes are evident. The New York Times also accepted that fact and ran the headline "Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution." That is true. Indeed, the ancestor of birds was a bird. The ancestor of fish was a fish, the ancestor of horses was a horse, the ancestor of kangaroos was a kangaroo and the ancestor of man was a man. In other words, all different classes of living beings emerged in the perfect and specific forms they have today. In other words, they are created by God.
The conservative resistance evolutionists show towards this evident fact has now lost its last cornerstone.
In our other studies on the invalidity of the theory of evolution, we had explained that Arhaeopteryx is not a living being in between bird-dinosaur, but an extinct bird species which could fly just like the modern birds. Despite this fact, some evolutionist publications still accepted Archaeopteryx as the "primitive ancestor of birds" and repeat the tale of "dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds". Above is seen misleading coverage in New Scientist , National Geographic, and New York Times about Archaeopteryx. Finally, however, truths have been revealed and even evolutionist publications had to admit the collapse of the Archaeopteryx myth.
