The ginkgo leaf fossil discovered by Darwin in 1859, the earliest specimens of which date back some 250 million years, caused a terrible panic in him. Darwin described this finding of his as a “living fossil” and regarded it as a major difficulty for his theory. If Darwin were alive today, he would completely abandon his theory in the face of the scale of the difficulties facing it. Faced with the lack of any fossils to support his theory during his lifetime, Darwin left the problem to the future, hoping that intermediate forms would one day be discovered. Yet Darwin’s followers also failed to find what he had hoped for. As you can see from the 84-million-year-old spotted seal skull fossil pictured, fossil specimens dating back millions of years of species still in existence today are emerging all the time. The fossil record reveals that Darwin was mistaken and that Creation is an irrefutable reality.
