Scenarios about the evolution of plants consist of imaginary tales with no supporting scientific evidence. Evolutionists from time to time admit this themselves. For example, the well-known evolutionary botanist Prof. N. Herbert Nilsson admits that all the research intended to prove the myth of plant evolution has collapsed in the face of the fossil record:

“My attempts to demonstrate evolution by an experiment carried on for more than forty years have completely failed. The fossil material is now so complete that it has been possible to construct new classes, and the lack of transitional series cannot be explained as being due to the scarcity of material. The deficiencies are real, they will never be filled.” (Arthur C. Custance, The Earth Before Man, Part II, Doorway Publications, p. 51)

White Cedar Leaf

White Cedar Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 54-37 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, British Colombia, Canada

Cedar trees have always existed as cedars. Likewise, oak trees have always existed as oaks, plane trees as plane trees and beech trees as beeches.

None is descended from any other species, and none has ever turned into any other. The 50-million-year-old fossil white cedar leaf in the picture confirms this fact.

Ribes Leaf

Ribes Leaf

Period: Miocene

Age: 23-5 million years

Region: Nevada, USA

Ribes that lived some 23 million years in the past were identical to specimens living today. Glorious currants looked the same 23 million years ago as they do now. As can clearly be seen in fossils, these organisms’ leaves, fruits, seeds and roots have never changed. They are just one of the millions of obstacles standing in the way of the theory of evolution.

Palm Leaf

Palm Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Green River Formation, USA

Fossil research over the last 150 years has shown that the hopes of Darwin and the evolutionists who followed him were all in vain, and not a single transitional form fossil has ever been found. Today there are some 350 million fossils in thousands of museums and collections. All these fossils belong to species with their own unique characteristics, and that are completely distinct from one another. None of the half-fish, half-amphibian, or half-dinosaur, half-bird, or half-monkey, half-human and similar life forms that evolutionists sought with great expectations have ever been encountered. All the fossils unearthed, such as the palm leaf fossil in the picture, are findings that refute evolution.

Sequoia Branch

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Canada

All plants are equipped with a distribution network so they can absorb the substances they need from the soil. That network transmits the minerals and water obtained from the soil in the shortest possible time to the centers where they are needed, in exactly the appropriate quantities. According to scientists’ findings, plants use more than one method of managing that difficult task. The transportation of water and nutrients in plants takes place by means of the structures with very different properties. These are the transport and distribution channels, and this immaculate structure also existed fully formed in plants many millions of years ago. It is Almighty Allah Who creates plants. Allah knows how to create all things.

Rock Elm Leaf

Rock Elm Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Canada

The reason why Darwinists have so determinedly espoused evolution for many years is their dogmatic devotion to materialism. The evolutionist Jonathan Wells says this on the subject:

“... It’s not evidence that makes Darwinism a “fact”, but materialistic philosophy. In 1997, Harvard geneticist Richard C. Lewontin recounted how he and Carl Sagan had once defended Darwinism in a debate, then he explained: ‘We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its contradictions… because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism.’” (Jonathan Wells, Ph.D., The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design, Regnery Publishing Inc., Washington, 2006, p. 69)

Anyone looking without prejudice at the evidence revealed by science will see and agree that evolution never happened. Hundreds of millions of fossils head the list of that evidence, including the 50-million-year-old fossil rock elm leaf in the picture.

Poplar Leaf

Poplar Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Place: Kamloops, Canada

The Swedish embryologist Soren Lovtrup describes the falsehood of Darwinism in these words:

“I believe that one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked as the greatest deceit in the history of science. When this happens many people will pose the question: How did this ever happen?” (S. Lovtrup, Darwinism: The Refutation of a Myth, London, Croom Helmm, 1987, p. 422 - Nicholas Comninellis, Creative Defense, Evidence Against Evolution, Master Books, 2001, p. 220)

People have today begun experiencing the shock of having been misled by Darwinists. Every day, they are becoming more aware of how they have been part of a worldwide hoax. The whole world will soon see the true face of the pseudo-religion that is Darwinism, and people will be amazed at how they were taken in by it. Once they have been freed from that lie, their minds and consciences that Darwinism had polluted will be cleansed, and they will realize that everything is the product of Allah’s glorious creation.

Katsura Tree Leaf

Katsura Tree Leaf

Period: Paleocene

Age: 58 million years

Place: Montana, USA

All fossils, without exception, deny evolution, and Darwinists are well aware of the fact. Ali Demirsoy is just one of the evolutionists who admits the defeat of Darwinism in the face of the fossil record:

“One of the most difficult stages to be explained in evolution is to scientifically explain how complex cells with organelles developed from these [supposedly] primitive creatures. No transitional form has been found between these two forms. One- and multi-celled creatures carry all this complicated structure, and no creature or group has yet been found with organelles of a simpler construction in any way, or which are more primitive. In other words, the organelles carried forward are fully formed. They have no simple and primitive forms.” (Prof. Dr. Ali Demirsoy, Kalitim ve Evrim ["Inheritance and Evolution"], p. 79)

Pacific Willow Leaf

Pacific Willow Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

Because the soil freezes in winter, tree roots soon become unable to absorb water from it. In addition, little rain falls in winter; most precipitation falls in the form of snow. Therefore, trees need to be able to resist the lack of water that occurs in the winter months. That resistance comes from their leaves. For example, the leaves of many coniferous trees are hard and leathery, and do not fall off. The waxy coating on the leaves reduces water loss through evaporation, and this resistance prevents the leaves from falling off or withering due to water pressure. Moreover, coniferous leaves are generally needle-shaped and able to withstand freezing cold. These trees then regain energy when new leaves open up every spring.

Plants did not acquire these features gradually. These amazing details were not bestowed on them by chance. Like all living things, Allah created plants in a single moment, with all the features they possess.

Leguminosae Leaf

Leguminosae Leaf

Period: Miocene

Age: 23-5 million years

Region: Spain

According to Darwin, life began with the chance emergence of a single cell, which gradually developed to give rise to the living world. The most important scientific finding showing that this hypothesis is not true is the fossil record. Hundreds of millions of fossils, like the approximately 23-million-year-old fossil leaf in the picture, have revealed that Darwin's theory is untrue. Thus, living things appeared not through evolution, but through Allah’s creation.

Serviceberry Leaf

Serviceberry Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

Hundreds of plant species appear suddenly in the fossil record, with all their characteristics. And this is a huge problem for evolutionists, one they can never account for. Indeed, this problem baffled Charles Darwin, the founder of the theory of evolution, who admitted:

“Nothing is more extraordinary in the history of the Vegetable Kingdom, as it seems to me, than the apparently very sudden or abrupt development of the higher plants.” (Francis Darwin, The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, 1887, p. 248)

As can be seen from all these plant fossils, there is no difference in shape or structure between today's plants and plants that lived millions of years ago.

Poplar Leaf

Poplar Leaf

Period: Paleocene

Age: 58 million years

Region: Sentinel Butte Formation, Dakota, USA

Poplar is the joint name given to plants constituting the species Populus from the willow family (Salicaceae). These plants have never changed since the moment they were first created. The 58-million-year-old poplar leaf in the picture is identical to those of poplar trees living today.

Aspen Leaf

Aspen Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

The aspen (Populus tremula) is a member of the willow (Salicaceae) family that can reach up to 25 meters (82 feet) in height. These plants are found in many parts of the world, and it is clear from the fossil in the picture that they have never changed over 50 million years. Trees that have not altered in the slightest over tens of millions of years are concrete proof that evolution does not exist. Allah created aspen trees as He does all living things.

Alder Leaf

Alder Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

Alder is the name given to trees from the species Alnus, members of the birch (Betulaceae) family. Various subspecies grow in Turkey. This 50-million-year-old fossil alder leaf, found in British Columbia, Canada, is concrete evidence that the gradual development claimed by evolutionists never happened. Allah created alders with the same appearance and features as they have today.

Beech Leaf

Beech Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

The beech, a deciduous forest tree, constitutes the species Fagus from the  Fagaceae family. Darwinists claim that life forms are descended from a common ancestor and differentiated from one another through gradual changes over the course of time. But paleontology refutes this with 350 million pieces of concrete evidence. The 50-million-year-old fossil beech tree leaf in the picture is one of the pieces of evidence that refute evolution.

Serviceberry Leaf

Serviceberry Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

Like all living things, the serviceberry tree has never changed over millions of years. The 50-million-year-old fossil serviceberry leaf in the picture is identical to specimens living today. And this is one of the proofs that evolution never took place and that Almighty Allah creates all living things.

Seaweed

Seaweed

Period: Cretaceous

Age: 95 million years

Region: Nammoura, Lebanon

Fossils of life forms that lived millions of years ago have been preserved in the fossil record. But it is striking that not a single fossil belonging to a fictitious “transitional form” of the kind alleged by evolutionists has ever been found. Fossils exist from many species, from ants to bacteria and from birds to flowering plants. They are all proof that evolution never happened. The 95-million-year-old fossil seaweed in the picture is one such.

Magnolia Leaf

Magnolia Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

All plants, from the smallest grasses to the tallest trees, have to distribute the minerals and water they absorb from the soil through their roots to everywhere, right to the tips of their leaves. This is of the greatest importance to plants because water and minerals are what plants most need. But how are the water and mineral salts hidden in the depths of the soil taken up by the plant? In addition, how do plants transmit these substances they absorb from the soil through their roots to all the different regions in their bodies? What techniques do they use to perform these difficult processes? These processes are carried out today with various hydrophore (pump and pipeline) systems. The transport and distribution processes in plants are also performed by a kind of hydrophore system. The presence of such a system in plants was discovered some 200 years ago, but plants have had this important feature for millions of years. Evolutionists have no rational explanation for this.

Wild Cherry Leaf

Wild Cherry Leaf

Period: Eocene

Age: 50 million years

Region: British Columbia, Canada

Plants have known how to turn sunlight into food through photosynthesis ever since the moment they were first created. Fruit trees know from the moment of their first creation how to make matchless and delicious fruits using only dry soil, water and air. Trees many meters tall know, from the moment of their first creation, how to send the water they obtain from the soil up as far as the tips of their leaves, operating against the force of gravity. It is Almighty Allah Who creates plants so matchlessly and gives them all their features. There is a wonderful order and co-operation among the living things on Earth. It is impossible for all these things to arise as the work of chance, as evolutionists maintain, and the very idea is illogical and unscientific.

The 50-million-year-old fossil wild cherry leaf in the picture is proof that this plant had the same features then as it does now.

Fern

Fern

Period: Oligocene

Age: 25 million years

Region: Dominican Republic

One environment in which fossils are best preserved is amber. When amber that flows from trees hardens over a plant or other living thing, it is as if a photograph of that moment is taken that will last for many millions of years. The distinguishing feature of amber fossils is that all the organism’s soft tissues are also preserved. The soft tissues of amber-preserved life forms, that can be seen right down to the finest detail, are proof that soft tissues have never changed over millions of years. There is no difference between this 25-million-year-old fossil fern and ferns living today. Evolution never happened.

Walnut

Walnut

Period: Pliocene

Age: 2.5 million years

Region: River Maas Beds, Beers, Holland

There are different types of walnut tree growing almost everywhere in the world. The fossil walnuts you see here have never changed over millions of years, and have remained exactly the same since the moment they were first created.

Ficus Leaf

Ficus Leaf

Period: Paleocene

Age: 58 million years

Region: Glendive, Montana, USA

Evolutionists would like the fossil record to confirm their claims that life forms gradually evolved from one another. But even though 99% of the fossil record has today been unearthed, they have not one piece of fossil evidence to support their claims of evolution. The 58-million-year-old fossil ficus leaf in the picture is one of the proofs of the fact that evolution never happened.
