Since 1822 thousands of animals have been discovered, which previously was not known, many of which are called “living fossils”. The so-called animals known only by their fossilized bones and presumed to have been extinct for millions of years and was used as “proof” of evolution. But then it was discovered, much to the disappointment of scientists that these animals are living today in different parts of the world .
This term was invented by Charles Darwin. In his work the Origin of species he called lungfish and other fish species, whose form from its inception has remained unchanged, “anomalous forms”. “actually can be called living fossils” .
Living fossils are living proof of the accuracy with which reproduces the plants and animals, and also confirm the fact that many of them haven’t changed at all.
Once it was thought that the Okapi was extinct until then, until they were discovered alive. But once these animals were used as proof that the horse evolved.
Australian and African coelacanths are actually living fossils. They all look like “primitive” and they are youthpalace, which is divided by partitions. It is obvious that Latimer can’t be our ancestor, because for 400 million years they have remained unchanged . Another animal, the horseshoe crab, it would be even more suitable candidate in our common ancestors. It looks “primitive”, and during the breeding season (when he spawns), he emerges from the ocean to the land. However, this animal is also a living fossil, which first appeared about 425 million years ago [ET*] in the rocks of the Silurian period, and during all this time remains unchanged .
Ancient fossils of plants and animals in comparison with living species today. Mollusks, bats, sea lilies remain to this day (after alleged millions of generations) mollusks, bats, and sea lilies. No signs of evolution. For while in the Photograph crab-the horseshoe crab has remained unchanged to the present day, lizards, according to evolution, should turn into kangaroos, elephants, eagles, penguins, horses and killer whales.
Similarly, pancerniki, sturgeon, amavia, and vislonosy all look “primitive”, and yet, they are all living fossils . In addition, all of them feel at home in a modern environment.
Fossil and modern leaf pine, Wollemi
In 1994 in the national Park of Wollemi (Blue mountains) national parks and wildlife service of New South Wales has discovered a pine tree, previously thought to be extinct. It has a close relationship to the plants that are found only in the so-called “Jurassic and Cretaceous” periods. (65-200 million years ago). In a separate area there were only a few trees.
The following aquatic animals that exist today, are an example of creatures that have not evolved since the existence of their fossilized ancestors: lobsters, crayfish and rays (fossils found in Jurassic rock), brachiopods, mussels, oysters, tiny clams (fossils of which are found in rocks of the Carboniferous period), sharks (fossilised teeth found in rocks of the Devonian period), mackerel, perch, herring, jellyfish, frogs, Nautilus and so on.
From 12000 fossilized insects the most part similar to living species of insects that exist today.
Fossils of various insects. Evolutionists date them to the age in millions of years. As you can see from the Photos, the insects have not changed to this day – the ancient samples are so similar to modern that they are easily recognizable without comparison with living insects. There is complete absence of evolution. And this is after the (alleged) tens and hundreds of millions of generations! At the time, while shown in the Photos, the dragonfly has remained unchanged to this day, lizards, according to evolution, should turn into kangaroos, elephants, hummingbirds, penguins and whales.
Fossilized bees, ants, cicadas, beetles or cockroaches are almost always identical (though often larger than) their modern descendants. The same can be said about arachnids and centipedes.
If all these species are not evolved in 50 million, 100 million or even 200 million years, why should we believe that they (or other organisms) in General evolved?
Other famous living fossils include the hatteria * (supposedly extinct since the Cretaceous period until then, until it was discovered alive in New Zealand), the Lepidocaris crustacean (only found fossilized in Devonian rocks), brachiopods Lingula (“extinct” since the Ordovician period), and even the trilobite (a fossil basic steering, which refers to even more ancient Cambrian period).
If all these species are not evolved in 50 million, 100 million or even 200 million years, why should we believe that they (or other organisms) in General evolved? Happened only a small change in the result of variations, but not major changes, as evolution implies.
The list could go on and on; in the fossil record, there are many examples of different species of animals that have not changed. Darwin tried to cover up this difficulty when he said that the fossil record is incomplete, but it was incomplete then and remains incomplete today. What we know about living fossils, then and now, is a representative sample of the fossil record.
