The Latest Fossil Claim of the Theory
of Evolution has also Become History
theory of evolution met a crushing defeat in palaeontology
as well in biochemical topics such as genes, DNA and
the cell systems. Fossils demonstrate that living species
did not evolve from each other, but were created separately
with their individual specific characteristics.
According to the theory of evolution, all living species
evolved from one another. A previously-existing species
turned into another species over time and all species
came into being in this manner. According to the theory,
this transformation has been over a very long period
of hundreds of millions of years and proceeded gradually.
In that case, numerous "intermediary species"
should have originated and lived within this long alleged
For instance, some half-fish/half-reptiles should have
lived in the past which had acquired some reptilian
traits in addition to the fish traits they already had.
Or some reptile-birds should have originated which had
acquired some bird traits in addition to the reptilian
traits they already had. Since they were in a transitory
period, they had to be crippled, deficient, and defective
living beings. Evolutionists refer to these theoretical
creatures, which they believe to have lived in the past,
as "transitional forms".
If such animals had really existed in the past, there
should be millions and even billions of them in number
and variety. Darwinism is shattered right at this point,
because there is not a single trace of these imaginary
"intermediate transitional forms".
This fact has been known for a long time. Yet evolutionists
speculated on a few fossils, trying to present them
as "intermediate transitional forms" and comforted
themselves saying, "only a few intermediate forms
have been found so far, but in the future all of them
will be unearthed". The most important fossil presented
as an intermediate form was a 150-million-year-old extinct
bird fossil called Archaeopteryx. Evolutionists claimed
that this bird had reptilian traits. Despite the fact
that their claims have been refuted one by one and that
it has been proved that Archaeopteryx was not an intermediate
transitional form but a flying bird species, they desperately
embraced this last fossil they had.
"Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory
of Birds' Evolution"
At last, a fossil discovered during recent weeks, definitely
overthrew this last hope of evolutionists. As quoted
from the evolutionist sources, a fossil was discovered
which revealed that the ancient ancestor of birds was
not a dinosaur or any other living being but a bird.
Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution:A
news item based on a news item that appeared in
New York Times on June 23, 2000 headlined "Fossil
Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds'Evolution".
News about this discovery first appeared in the world
media on June 23, 2000, in New York Times with the headline
"Fossil Discovery Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution".
This article was about a bird which was recently unearthed
in the Middle East. Prominent scientific journals such
as Science and Nature and the world-renowned TV station
BBC announced the recent developments as follows: "It
has been discovered that the fossil, which is unearthed
in the Middle East and estimated to have lived 220 million
years ago, is covered with feathers, has a wishbone
just like Archaeopteryx and modern birds do, and there
are hollow shafts in its feathers. THIS INVALIDATES
THE CLAIMS THAT ARCHAEOPTERYX IS THE ANCESTOR OF BIRDS,
because the fossil discovered is 75 million years older
than Archaeopteryx. This means that A REAL BIRD WITH
ALL ITS CHARACTERISTIC FEATURES ALREADY EXISTED 75 MILLION
YEARS BEFORE THE CREATURE WHICH WAS ALLEGED TO BE THE
ANCESTOR OF BIRDS."
A Milestone in the History of the
The admission by evolutionists themselves that Archaeopteryx
is not an "intermediate transitional form"
to serve as evidence for evolution is an important milestone
in the history of palaeontology. This is because for
about 150 years, Archaeopteryx has continued to be the
most prominent among the very few so-called "intermediate
transitional forms" evolutionists could advance.
However, this door of escape is also closed now, and
the world of palaeontology has had to face the plain
truth that there is not even a single fossil which can
provide evidence for evolution.
The outcomes are evident. The New York Times also accepted
that fact and ran the headline "Fossil Discovery
Threatens Theory of Birds' Evolution." That is
true. Indeed, the ancestor of birds was a bird. The
ancestor of fish was a fish, the ancestor of horses
was a horse, the ancestor of kangaroos was a kangaroo
and the ancestor of man was a man. In other words, all
different classes of living beings emerged in the perfect
and specific forms they have today. In other words,
they are created by God.
The conservative resistance evolutionists show towards
this evident fact has now lost its last cornerstone.
In our other studies on the invalidity of the
theory of evolution, we had explained that Arhaeopteryx
is not a living being in between bird-dinosaur,
but an extinct bird species which could fly just
like the modern birds. Despite this fact, some
evolutionist publications still accepted Archaeopteryx
as the "primitive ancestor of birds" and repeat
the tale of "dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds".
Above is seen misleading coverage in New Scientist
, National Geographic, and New York Times about
Archaeopteryx. Finally, however, truths have been
revealed and even evolutionist publications had
to admit the collapse of the Archaeopteryx myth.
