Chapter 1: Living Fossils Reveal Creation to Us

Boys and girls, as the fossils will soon tell us, creatures that lived hundreds of millions of years ago had the same wonderful characteristics as those living today. The primitive creatures that evolutionists imagine have never existed on earth. Allah created living things in one moment, perfectly, with all the characteristics they possess today.

Boys and girls, we know that the theory of evolution is not true. But those who are curious about whether it is true or not can find out the answer best with the help of fossil science. So, we must compare the claims of the evolution theory with the fossils themselves. Let's recall what the theory of evolution says: According to this senseless theory, all living things supposedly evolved from one another. That is, a species came to be through coincidences and with a long time, and again by coincidence, turned into something else. The theory claims that living species came to be in this way. According to this nonsensical theory, this change happened over a period of hundreds of millions of years, advancing stage by stage. You might ask the following questions:

  1. Within such a long period of time, would it not be necessary for countless 'transitional forms' (for example, half-birds, half-alligators, and other strange creatures) to come into being?
  2. Among the millions of fossils discovered until now, shouldn't many fossils belonging to such strange creatures have come to light?

Well, why has not one such fossil yet been found? There is not one to be found, because they have never existed. These strange creatures are only products of evolutionists' imagination. For example, evolutionists believe that, in the past, creatures must have lived that were half-fish and half-reptile, but having characteristics of each. Or they say that a creature with features of a reptile developed characteristics of birds and a reptile-bird came into being. And, according to them, because these were in a temporary stage of development, they were necessarily deformed creatures with limitations and disabilities. Evolutionists apply the term 'transitional form' to these imaginary creatures they believe lived in the past.

Not Even One Transitional form Fossil has Been Found

Boys and girls, if evolutionists' claims that such creatures lived in the past were true, there should have been millions, even billions of fossils of them. And their fossils should have been discovered everywhere in the world; the earth should be filled with the remains of these transitional forms. But, because there is no such thing as evolution, no transitional form has appeared. It is clear, then, that there is not any fossil proof for evolution. Charles Darwin, who first articulated the theory of evolution, accepts this fact; he explains this in his book called 'The Origin of Species'. "Why, if species have descended from other species by fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms? … But, as by this theory innumerable transitional forms must have existed, why do we not find them embedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth?… But in the intermediate region, having intermediate conditions of life, why do we not now find closely-linking intermediate varieties? This difficulty for a long time quite confounded me." (Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, pp. 172-280)

The fern fossil you see here is 58 million- years- old. The ferns that lived 58 million years ago did not have the slightest difference from those we find today.

In Darwin's day, not one fossil was found that validated this theory. But Darwin, maintained that in years to come, with new fossils that will be discovered, lost transitional forms would certainly be revealed. But more than 150 years have passed since Darwin made this statement. In this period science and technology have both developed, scientists have been doing constant research, but the result is the same. Not one transitional form has been found that Darwin hoped would support his theory. It has been proven once again that evolution is a false tale.

Discovered fossils are enough to prove that evolution never happened

The poplar leaf fossil you see below is about 50 million- years- old. It shows that poplar trees have not changed in 50 million years.

A great majority of fossils in the earth's crust have been found up to date. There are millions of fossils that have been discovered in various parts of the world, but among these fossils there is not even a single transitional form fossil or any fossil showing that evolution has taken place. There is not one fossil that has been found that proves that one species of living creatures has turned into another. Despite the wealth of the fossil record, a transitional form has never come to light, and it is impossible that such a fossil will be discovered by further excavations. Boys and girls, some well-known scientists share this opinion. Here you can see some of their statements on this matter: T. Neville George, a professor of the University of Glasgow, described the wealth of the fossil record:

"…In some ways it has become almost unmanageably rich, and discovery is outpacing integration"… (T.N.George, "Fossils in Evolutionary Perspective", Science Progress, vol 48, January 1960, p. 1, 3)

Robert Wesson states the following:

…" Species are usually static, or nearly so, for long periods, ... generally never show evolution into new species or genera". (R. Wesson, Beyond Natural Selection, MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1991, p. 45)

Boys and girls, this invalidates the statement that 'Fossils proving the existence of the theory of evolution have not been found but will be found one day.' As a result, it becomes clear that Allah created the creatures on earth in various forms and species; and He did this in one moment. There is certainly no such thing as evolution.

Fossils Prove Creation

Boys and girls, many people believe that fossils prove the validity of the theory of evolution. This is not true; actually, the opposite is the case. Fossils are an important proof that show evolution never happened. But there are many books filled with imaginative stories of evolution.

Allah created every living thing with its own characteristics. This shows that the claim that they developed and evolved through time is false.

For 150 years, no proofs have been found for evolution. In spite of this, evolutionists claim that the fossil record is not sufficient. But this is not true; it is a deception. Millions of fossils are held in museums, universities, and institutes and when we examine these fossils, we can see, despite the claims of evolutionists, that living things did not evolve; on the contrary, they have remained the same without change. Actually, many people acknowledge this fact but pretend they don't.

Have they not looked at the sky above them: how We structured it and made it beautiful and how there are no fissures in it? And the earth: how We stretched it out and cast firmly embedded mountains onto it and caused luxuriant plants of every kind to grow in it. (Surah Qaf: 6-7)
