No Evolution in 58 Million Years

by Chuck Ness

Well it seems like those who continue to cling to the few remaining threads of hope that Darwin was right, have another problem with Darwin's theory of evolution. From the evidence accumulated by the University of Florida there seems to be the exact same families of plants around today as there was 58 million years ago. That is the what the evidence points to from a press release from the university that stated, “Plant fossils give first real picture of earliest Neotropical rain forests,”

With the evidence uncovered from the Columbian Forests we can now say for certain that the Young Earth Creationists, like myself are not grabbing at straws of faith. It is getting pretty scary for the evolutionist minded scientists who are at the mercy of such groups like the Institute for Creation Research who are celebrating this find as confirming not just a the young earth model but also the global flood mentioned in Genesis.

Time to face the facts, if natural selection were a fact of science than we should expect to see some evolution taking place from one family of plant life into another family of plant life in the last 58 million years. However, not only does the evidence not support Darwin's theory of evolution, but it also does not support the theory that the earth has been in existence for billions of years.

Remember, I am talking about a segment of our scientific community that has convinced the most powerful government the world has ever seen to teach it's children that evolution is a fact and that creationism is a fable. Evolutionist believe that a cow turned into a whale in less than half the time that the University of Florida has determined no evolutionary process has happened in the plant family. Surely, if natural selection has been in effect for millions of years, than we should find evidence of it among the simplest of all life form on this planet.

On October 30, 2009 the University of Florida released an article on a study from Colombia that shows “many of the dominant plant families existing in today’s Neotropical rain forests – including legumes, palms, avocado and banana – have maintained their ecological dominance despite major changes in South America’s climate and geological structure.”

Basically what a team of researchers that included a paleontologist from the university of Florida have done was studyed a rich cache of about 2,000 megafossil specimens from the Paleocene, that was said to be 58 million years old. This is only 5 to 8 million years after the extinction of the dinosaurs according to conventional dating. One major finding was that the Neotropical rain forests were warmer and wetter in the late Paleocene than today but were composed of the same plant families that now thrive in rain forests. The press release says that the fossil record from Neotropical rain forests has been “almost nonexistent” – but now, it is evident that modern plant families existed then. “We have the fossils to prove this,” one researcher said. “The foundations of the Neotropical rainforests were there 58 million years ago.”

The only difference between modern rain forests and the fossil record is more diversity now. But since identification of species can only be made to the genus level, there may be some subjectivity in that judgment. An earlier team also found the skeleton of a giant snake at the open coal pit mine – Titanoboa. “Like Titanoboa, which is clearly related to living boas and anacondas, the ancient forest of northern Colombia had similar families of plants as we see today in that ecosystem.”

Then there is the article in Live Science that has showed how the “oldest known spider web” has been pushed back another 4 million years (cf. 06/23/2006). Looks like the web material, encased in amber, not only proves that spiders had the web-making equipment as far back as the fossil record shows, but that it has continued with little change for 140 million years according to the consensus dating scheme.

I have stated my opinion before about what I think of the scientific community's dating system and how it has been proved to be wrong time and time again when tested. Now this evidence on the plant life in the rain forests just helps to bolster my opinion that the evolutionary scientists need to rethink their lame theories.

God is still alive and kicking, while Darwin's dead and his theory should finally be buried with him.
