The golden ages of evolution that are thought to be buried in the fossil record are presented in textbooks as if there is clear evidence that life emerged spontaneously and then gradually evolved from simple to complex.
According to the previous chapters, there can be no such evidence. Natural laws forbid it. As you'll now see, the so-called fossil evidence is a fabrication, just as predicted. Not only that, the record shows the sudden appearance of life at the Cambrian and, other than limited epigenetic variation, creatures remaining within their identifiable kind.
Geology Built Upon Evolutionary Belief
Remarkably, the geological sequence laid out in textbook charts and in artfully crafted displays in museums can be found nowhere on the planet. The chart is a representation of evolutionary belief, not a record of fact.
Beginning with the assumption that evolution is true, a simple fossil organism must be in really old rocks and really old rocks must contain simple organisms. Contrary evidence is ignored or dismissed. That's how the geologic column and timetable were fabricated.
Bible religionists have been guilty of the same sort of bias. As late as the 1800s it was thought heretical to believe that any death could have occurred before the fall of Adam and Eve. Fossils were dead things said to predate humans and had to be explained away, such as being fish bones dropped by travelers.
Back to reality. It's true that often "simple" creatures are found deeper than the larger, more complex ones. But that's expected with flooding and sedimentation. In general, small and dense creatures are going to settle in water more quickly than large, less dense ones. The larger organisms most capable of fleeing a natural disaster would be the last captured by sediment. Watery cataclysm explains such a simple to complex progression in the rocks but also allows for the inversions and randomness also found there.
The Living Fossil Problem
There are countless animals alive today that look identical to their ancient fossil kin. Creatures that have been on earth for millions of years and have not changed, contradict evolution.
Let's give the evolutionists an Earth that's 4.6 billion years old. The only time available for life to spontaneously appear would be after the Earth cooled enough for water to form. Evolutionists say that was 3.8 billion years ago.
But, according to geologists and paleontologists, complete life forms first appeared 3.8 billion years ago. These "first" life forms, if there ever was a "first," were called proteobacteria.
Embarrassingly, such "first" life forms can be found alive and well today in stromatolites.
There is no evidence of precursors to stromatolite proteobacteria, and there is no evidence that these oldest life forms on Earth evolved forward. Yet we are to believe that during the 3.8 billion years they were content staying as they were, other microbes had the ability to evolve into creatures like us.
The simple-to-complex evolutionary progression is abundantly contradicted in the rocks.
Our putative human ancestors, such as Homo erectus, are said to have arrived on the scene 1.5 million years ago. Australopithecus afarensis, a variety of ape beguilingly named Lucy, is the alleged earliest progenitor and dated 3.2 million years. That means, of course, fully formed humans could not coexist with or predate their evolutionary beginnings.
However, consider these facts (dating methods are those used by evolutionists):
(More evidence of humans on Earth over a billion [that's a B] years ago is documented at mcremo.com.)
If facts from the rocks are going to be used to prove evolution, then all the evidence from the rocks must be let in. The above facts and what follows are not found in any school text. They can't be, of course, or the case for the geological column, evolutionary timetable, and simple to complex biological gradation would be kaput.
The atheist evolutionist Dawkins admitted, ". . . evolution makes the strong prediction that if a single fossil turned up in the wrong geological stratum, the theory would be blown out of the water." He then follows up by saying, "No such anachronistic fossils have ever been found . . ."
Dinosaurs as Meals and Pets
According to the evolutionary timetable, dinosaurs predated humans by almost 250 million years. However:
In my 1974 Creation Evolution Controversy book, I showed pictures of human footprints alongside dinosaur footprints in the Texas Paluxy riverbed. I have since seen reports that some such evidence may have been doctored. If that's true, it's no surprise. Both sides in this debate have been found guilty of such shenanigans. But an instance of fraud cannot be taken to mean that all evidence showing humans coeval with dinosaurs is void.
Moreover, if an incident of fraud is sufficient to reject the argument it's used to support, then evolutionists are most certainly in trouble.
In 1868, the evolutionist Haekel discussed a creature he named Pithecanthropus alalus, a link between ape and man. There was no evidence for it whatsoever. It was created out of sheer belief.
Piltdown Man was a forged missing link. Java Man (another Pithecanthropus) was created with a few fragments from an extinct Gibbon-like creature. Peking Man, Nebraska Man, Southwest Colorado Man, Ramapithecus, Australopithecus africanus and Homo habilis were proposed as evolutionary links but were either outright frauds, creatures other than "links," real humans, or fanciful reconstructions.
Hesperopithecus was a supposed human precursor. As it turns out, it was reconstructed from a single pig's tooth. Many missing links are reconstructed from a few bone fragments or teeth. That's not science, it's imagination.
Cro-Magnon Man had to be retired from missing link status when specimens showed larger brain capacity than modern humans.
Some reconstructions of Neanderthal Man were based on an older arthritic specimen—perfect for showing a stooped ape-like posture. Both Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon are now considered fully human.
This is what fossils prove:
As predicted by natural law, evolution cannot be true. The fossil record supports that.
The full array of evidence is, however, completely consistent with sudden creation. This conclusion does not require any religious predisposition. We're simply letting reason and facts guide us.
