FOSSIL SPECIMENS OF PLANTS -8-   Leave a comment

FOSSIL SPECIMENS OF PLANTS

BIRCH LEAVES

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

This birch leaf from the Eocene epoch (54 to 37 million years ago) unearthed in British Columbia is identical to the birch leaves of our day. Birch trees have not changed for millions of years and have not gone through any process of evolution.

But thanks to Darwinists’ misleading propaganda, some may be deceived into thinking that some fossil specimens belong to “intermediate forms”—a totally imaginary term. In the fossil record, there exists not a single transitional specimen claimed by evolutionists. The record reveals only fossil specimens that have remained unchanged for millions of years.

 

ALDER LEAF

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

Darwinism tries to make people believe that coincidence, the false deity of evolution, has formed cells, organisms, animals, plants and even people. Darwinists suggest some irrational, even ridiculous claims that science cannot support and then seek some false evidence for them. That is why they seek imaginary intermediate forms in fossil beds. But as with this fossilized alder leaf from the Eocene epoch (54-37 million years ago), the geologic layers offer the remains of living things that have not changed—which is to say, have not evolved.

 

GINKGO LEAF

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

This ginkgo leaf from the Eocene epoch (54-37 million years ago) is no different from the ginkgo leaves of our day. According to Darwinist claims, within a period of 50 million years, this living species should have undergone evolution innumerable times, developing from a primitive to more advanced form. According to evolutionists, in Earth’s so-called “primitive” environment of 50 million years ago, this species also had to display primitive features. However, the fossil record shows that ginkgos have not undergone any changes. This fossil alone, with the same complexity as modern-day ginkgos, proves that the evolutionary process is an imaginary concept.

 

MAGNOLIA LEAF

Age: 50 million years old
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

The fossilized magnolia leaf pictured is 50 million years old. Despite this, the leaf is exactly the same as the ones living today. According to the theory of evolution, all those millions of years should have contributed changes to the organism. But such a change is observed in none of these fossil specimens. This 50-million-year-old magnolia leaf is one of the numerous pieces of evidence refuting evolution.

 

SERVICEBERRY LEAF

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

The fossil of this plant, which grows not very tall and is rich in leaves, is 50 million years old. This immaculate fossil specimen proves that the plant hasn’t gone through any changes in millions of years as the evolutionists claim and has no “primitive” form.

 

FERN

Age: 320 million years
Period: Carboniferous
Location: Lancashire, United Kingdom

One of the fossils revealing that ferns have always remained the same, and have not gone through any changes—that is, have not evolved—is illustrated here. This fossil shows that ferns that grew 320 million years ago were no different from the present-day examples. This devastates all the claims of evolutionists about the history of nature.

 

ASH LEAF (right) WITH SEQUOIA STEMS AND BRANCHES 

Age: 50 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

The ash, native to North America nowadays, is a medium to large tree. Also 50 million years ago, the ash tree and sequoia—a tree even larger than the ash tree—grew in Canada, with exactly the same characteristics.
The fossil record provides undeniable evidence proving this. The excellent petrified remains show all the identifying details.

 

ELM LEAF

Age: 54-37 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada

The elm leaf pictured grew during the Eocene epoch (54 to 37 million years ago), with the very same shape it has today. Like all other living fossils, this plant has not undergone any changes. This 50-million-year-old specimen clearly preserves all the details of the plant’s leaf. In the face of evidence like this, evolutionists have no explanations or alternatives to offer.

 

HONEYSUCKLE LEAF

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, Central North Dakota, USA

The first person to admit that the scenario of plants’ evolution was in a quagmire was Charles Darwin himself. As he wrote in an 1881 letter to botanist Sir Joseph Hooker of Kew Gardens:

Nothing is more extraordinary in the history of the vegetable kingdom [according to the scientific classification], as it seems to me, than the apparently very sudden and abrupt development of the higher plants.

These words are Darwin’s admission that the plants’ origins could not be explained by evolution and that—like all other living organisms, plants were also created by God.

 

HORSECHESTNUT LEAVES 

Age: 58 million years
Period: Paleocene
Location: Sentinel Butte Formation, Central North Dakota, USA

The fossil record is one of the main findings that devastate the theory of evolution—and the majority of scientists are aware of this. For example N. Eldredge and I. Tattersall make the following comment:

That individual kinds of fossils remain recognizably the same throughout the length of their occurrence in the fossil record had been known to paleontologists long before Darwin published his Origin. Darwin himself . . . prophesied that future generations of paleontologists would fill in these gaps by diligent search . . . One hundred and twenty years of paleontological research later, it has become abundantly clear that the fossil record will not confirm this part of Darwin’s predictions [Emphasis added]. Nor is the problem a miserably poor record. The fossil record simply shows that this prediction is wrong. (N. Eldredge and I. Tattersall, The Myths of Human Evolution, New York: Columbia University Press, 1982, pp. 45-46.)

One of the fossils revealing that Darwin was wrong is this 58-million-year-old fossilized horsechestnut leaf.
