Fossil Specimens of Marine Creatures (5/5)

Stingray (with its pair)

This is a mirror-image fossil, traces of which can be seen on either side of the rock surface.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

The 95-million-year-old fossil stingray pictured reveals that these fish have undergone no change since they first came into being on Earth. This has gone down as yet another of the proofs demolishing the Darwinist thesis that "Fossils support the theory of evolution."

Countless scientific books and articles have revealed the invalidity of these illusory evolutionist claims. The fact that fossils have failed to produce the "intermediate forms" of which Darwin dreamed—and that, on the contrary, different living groups on Earth appear suddenly in the fossil record and with all their unique structures—is agreed by a great many scientists, including many present-day evolutionist paleontologists.

Niles Eldredge, for example, admits that evolutionist paleontologists are well aware of the lack of intermediate forms and the stasis in the fossil record (the fact that living species have remained unaltered), but this evidence goes ignored:

"Each new generation, it seems, produces a few young paleontologists eager to document examples of evolutionary change in their fossils. The changes they have always looked for have, of course, been of the gradual progressive sort. More often than not their efforts have gone unrewarded—their fossils, rather than exhibiting the expected pattern, just seem to persist virtually unchanged. . . . This extraordinary conservatism looked, to the paleontologist keen on finding evolutionary change, as if no evolution had occurred. Thus studies documenting conservative persistence rather than gradual evolutionary change were considered failures, and, more often than not, were not even published. Most paleontologists were aware of the stability, the lack of change we call stasis." (an excerpt from Niles Eldredge, "Evolutionary Tempos and Modes: A Paleontological Perspective," in the anthology What Darwin Began: Modern Darwinian and non-Darwinian Perspectives on Evolution [ed. Godfrey, 1985], as quoted in the book Darwin on Trial by Phillip E. Johnson, Regnery Gateway, 1991, pp. 58-60)

This is a mirror-image fossil, traces of which can be seen on either side of the rock surface.

Guitarfish

Age: 95 million years
Period:Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

The countless proofs revealed by paleontology over the years confirm that living things never evolved. The fossil pictured is one of the many proofs that evolutionists ignore. This 95-million-year-old fossil, popularly known as a guitar fish thanks to its appearance, has to a large extent preserved its skeletal structure. The head and fins can be made out in perfect detail.

Confronted by this fossil, which is identical to modern-day guitar fish, evolutionists have no explanation to offer, and no evidence to submit. All they can do is attempt to mislead and deceive people through demagoguery.

Pipefish

Age: 40 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Green River Formation, Wyoming, USA

Pipefish, members of the family Syngnathidae, are toothless, and their mouths are tube-shaped. Those that lived tens of millions of years ago had exactly the same features as pipefish alive today. Nonetheless, evolutionists still claim that pipefish came into existence by chance, as the result of a long process of evolution—as indeed they do with regard to all other life forms. They are completely lacking in any evidence to support their claims. Yet there are millions of proofs, like the one in the picture, that clearly show that the evolution hypothesis is not true.

Puffer Fish

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

Darwinist publications contain no accounts based on concrete scientific evidence. The fundamental dilemmas that contradict the theory of evolution are glossed over in a few sentences, while on the other hand, a great many fantastical scenarios are dreamed up and presented as factual.
Evolutionists constantly claim that all living things developed by gradually evolving from one another, yet remain silent when firm evidence is demanded. For example, if you ask evolutionists who have offered a long explanation of how "Fish forced to emerge onto dry land as the seas dried up eventually turned into reptiles" whether they have any fossil evidence with which to support their claim, you will never receive an answer.

Despite all their searching over the last 150 years, Darwinists have failed to find one single example of an intermediate form. All the fossils they have unearthed show that life emerged suddenly—in other words, species were created, never changed, and never underwent evolution.

Needlefish

Period: Cretaceous
Age:95 million years
Location: Lebanon

Evolutionists, who persist in claiming that "species evolved from one another" at every available opportunity are helpless in the face of the fossil record because they possess not a single piece of evidence. The fossil needlefish in the picture, for instance, documents how these have remained unchanged for 95 million years. This slender fish, which belongs to the family Belonidae, is no different to specimens alive today.

Mantis Shrimp

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

The theory of evolution consists of a hypothesis. In order for that hypothesis to be regarded as scientific it needs to be testable or else confirmed by findings. Yet evolutionist fantasies lack these criteria. There is no significance or scientific value in the tales that Darwinists have been relating for so long, about how invertebrates supposedly turned into vertebrates, how fish living in the seas moved to the dry land as the oceans dried up, or how dinosaurs chasing flies began to fly themselves. They need to point to a single fossil of a half-invertebrate and half-vertebrate, half-fish and half-reptile or half-dinosaur and half-bird—if any such exist.

Evolutionists are unable to point to any such fossils, yet there are a countless—and ever-increasing—number of fossils proving that evolution never happened at all. This 95-million-year-old fossilized mantis shrimp is one such example.

Puffer Fish

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

This fossilized puffer fish is another of the proofs that living things never evolved. The skeleton of this 95-million-year-old fish has been almost completely preserved, and there is no difference between its skeletal structure and that of button fish living today. Yet evolutionists ignore this fact and claim that fish evolved from invertebrate marine organisms—a claim devoid of any scientific basis.

The fossil record shows that evolution is a groundless claim, and throws this fact in Darwinists' faces on every occasion. Fossils show that living things did not evolve, but were created.

Squid

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

The squid is a marine-dwelling mollusk, a member of the class Cephalopoda (cephalopods). This photo shows a 95-million-year-old squid fossil. There is not the slightest difference between it and present-day specimens. The pigment sac beneath the skin can even be seen in this fossil, and its skeletal structure is identical to those in modern-day squid.

If evolutionists' claims were true, then squid should have undergone various changes over the course of millions of years, and by now, various fossil specimens documenting these stages should have been discovered. But every fossil found shows that squid have survived completely unchanged for millions of years.

Sardine

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

This 95-million-year-old fossilized sardine gives a clear response to evolutionists' fictitious claims. The fact that this fossil sardine has exactly the same appearance as specimens living today, with exactly the same skeleton and fins, demolishes the evolutionist tale of the evolution of fish. At the same time, it also proves that Almighty God has created all life forms, and that living things have not changed from that time to this.

Mantis Shrimp and Eel

Mantis Shrimp

Eel

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

Scientific data and findings show that eels have always existed as eels, and mantis shrimp as mantis shrimp. They have no supposed primitive forebears. They have undergone no intermediate stages ever since they first came into existence.

Puffer Fish

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Lebanon

The puffer fish has survived unchanged for millions of years. The fact that puffer fish living 95 million years ago were identical to those still alive today is a state of affairs that evolutionists can never explain. The clear fact revealed by fossils is that God has created living things.

Despite being a proponent of the theory of evolution, the British paleontologist Derek W. Ager admits as such:

"The point emerges that, if we examine the fossil record in detail, whether at the level of orders or of species, we find—over and over again—not gradual evolution, but the sudden explosion of one group at the expense of another." (Derek W. Ager, "The Nature of the Fossil Record," Proceedings of the British Geological Association, Vol. 87, 1976, p. 133.)

Needlefish (with its pair)

This fossil consists of apositive nand a negative slab.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

With its thin body and skeleton, long jaw resembling that of a swordfish and its sharp teeth, the needlefish has undergone not the slightest change in 95 million years. This unchanging nature, seen in all living species in the fossil record, is known as "stasis" and represents one of the main problems confronting Darwinists.

Peter Williamson from Harvard University sums up this state of affairs, which is a most unexpected one for Darwinists:

"The principal problem is morphological stasis. A theory is only as good as its predictions, and conventional neo-Darwinism, which claims to be a comprehensive explanation of evolutionary process, has failed to predict the widespread long-term morphological stasis now recognized as one of the most striking aspects of the fossil record." (Peter G. Williamson, "Morphological Stasis and Developmental Constraint: Real Problems for Neo-Darwinism," Nature, Vol. 294, 19 November 1981, p. 214.)

Mantis Shrimp

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

Scientific findings reveal that evolution never happened. The mantis shrimp fossil illustrated is one proofs of this fact, which evolutionists attempt to conceal. There is no difference between this fossil and mantis shrimp living today.

Mantis shrimp use arm-like appendages extending out of their chests in order to feed. Each of these is clawed. The second one is particularly large and is used for striking and holding prey. Since the second appendage closely resembles the claws of the mantis, these creatures are widely known as mantis shrimp. These appendages, which come in two types—speared and heeled—vary among species. A large mantis shrimp can strike as powerfully as a 22-caliber bullet.

Guitarfish

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

In his words "It is doubtful whether, in the absence of fossils, the idea of evolution would represent anything more than an outrageous hypothesis" (S. M. Stan-ley, The New Evo-lu-ti-onary Timetable Fos-sils, Genes and the Origins of Species, New York: Basic Books, Inc., 1981, p. 72.), S. M. Stanley from Johns Hopkins University reveals the significance of the fossil record for the theory of evolution.

As you have seen, leading evolutionists admit that the deficient nature of the fossil record poses a problem for their theory. The 95-million-year-old guitarfish pictured is one of the examples confirming Professor Stanley's confession. (Ibid.)

Wolf Herring

Age: 110 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Santana Formation, Brazil

There is absolutely no difference between the 110-million-year-old wolf herring in the picture and present-day wolf herrings. The same thing applies to all other fish, plants, mammals and birds. Plant, mammal and bird fossils dating back hundreds of millions of years possess exactly the same features as their present-day counterparts.

Needlefish

The illustrations show fossil digs being conducted at the Haqe Formation in Lebanon. As a result of such excavations over the last 150 years, millions of fossils belonging to hundreds of thousands of species have been unearthed. Not a single one of these points to the so-called evolutionary process of living things. Species appear in the fossil record with all their characteristics fully formed and developed. This shows that the Darwinist scenario of gradual development from the primitive to the more advanced never occurred.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

Large numbers of needlefish can be found in the fossil record. Living specimens of these same species can also be seen today, and they are one of the proofs that living things never evolved.

Lady Fish (with its pair)

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

Evolutionist claims that "Living things developed gradually, and that is how species emerged," are once again refuted by the 95-million-year-old ladyfish fossil in the picture. Fish of the family Elopidae had exactly the same skeletal structure millions of years ago as they still exhibit today. The significance of this is obvious: Living things never evolved, but were created by our Lord.

Bonefish (with its pair)

This fossil is a mirror-image one that appears on both sides of the split rock's surfaces.

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

The 95-million-year-old bonefish pictured is a member of the family Albulidae, of the suborder Elipoidei. It is identical to today's bonefish.

Fossil research has been going on all over the world for roughly the last 150 years. As a result, millions of fossils have been unearthed. Yet not a single specimen of a half-invertebrate/ half-fish, or a half-fish/ half-crocodile life form has ever been found. Evolutionist claims regarding "intermediate-form fossils" have never been anything more than dreams. Every fossil discovered has revealed that living things remain unchanged for as long as their species have survived. This means that God has created living things.

Sawfish

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

There are no differences between present-day specimens and the 95-million-year-old sawfish pictured. This, by itself, puts the theory of evolution in a severe quandary. Our Almighty Lord has created all living things as separate species, which have survived unchanged from the moment of their creation right down to today.

Sea Urchin

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Nammoura, Lebanon

The sea urchin is only of the hundreds of millions of fossils that refute the theory of evolution. The 95-million-year-old sea urchin pictured here is by itself sufficient to invalidate the claims of evolutionists, who now find it impossible to mislead people with demagoguery, deceptions and speculation of various kinds—because all the scientific findings, and particularly the fossil record, are out in the open.

Evolutionary speculations are valueless in the face of the sea urchin that has remained unchanged for 95 million years.

Catshark

Age: 95 million years
Period: Cretaceous
Location: Haqel, Lebanon

Cat sharks that lived millions of years ago possessed all the same fully formed features as those living today—as is confirmed by the 95-million-year-old cat shark pictured, which is identical to present-day specimens.

God has created cat shark to be fully formed and with nothing lacking, as He has all other living things. Like them, cat sharks never underwent evolution.
