FOSSIL SPECIMENS OF PLANTS

WILLOW

Age: 54-37 million years
Period: Eocene
Location: Green River Formation, Uintah County, Utah, USA

Plant cells accomplish a process that no laboratory can: photosynthesis. In a plant’s cell, organelles called chloroplasts absorb sunlight and use it in conjunction with water and carbon dioxide gas to produce starch.

This is the first link of the food chain and the food source for all living creatures on Earth. Details of this very complex process are still not exactly understood, and it is impossible for evolutionary mechanisms to explain this complexity.

The fossilized willow leaf pictured is 54 to 37 million years old. Willows that lived tens of millions of years ago employed photosynthesis in the same way that they do today. They reproduced in the same way and displayed the same features. This correspondence pushes evolutionists into a desperate situation and once again stresses the fact that living organisms are created by God.

 

GINKGO LEAF

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

Darwin himself first discovered that ginkgo leaf, which has left abundant fossil remains in Earth’s geologic layers, has never changed. But in contrast to Darwin’s assumptions, the ginkgo is not the only living fossil that has survived to the present day.

The many living fossil specimens displayed in this book and thousands of others displayed in museums definitely refute Darwin.

 

FERN

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

By now, many plant fossils have been unearthed, and all of them have something in common: They are all flawless, and exactly like those plants alive in our day. Not a single fossil reveals that a particular plant is the forebear of any other, or that another species is an intermediate form. This is evidence that God created all living things.

The 320-million-year-old fern fossil pictured is one of the findings that shows the fact of Creation.

 

This fossil is a two-sided one. The plant has left its imprint on both surfaces of the layerd stone.

METASEQUOIA

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

Metasequoia or “dawn redwood” is one of the largest, most upright and symmetrical trees of the world. This fossilized leaf has been preserved for 50 million years, verifying that the plant has never changed. If, 50 million years ago, a species possessed all the features it still has today, if it displays not a single trace of evolution, if none of its features show any characteristic of being an intermediate “missing link” fossil—and betray no inadequacy or “primitiveness,” in the words of evolutionists—then they cannot say that this species has evolved. If a living species has not changed for millions of years and the Earth overflows with the evidence, then it is not possible to talk about evolution.
