Daily Devotional – April 14
When living creatures look exactly like their fossil counterparts, they have been called “living fossils.” There are actually thousands of examples of fossils (many believed by evolutionists to be hundreds of millions of years old) that are identical to modern counterparts. For example:
- Bacteria fossils are found identical to bacteria today. This means that some bacteria stayed the same while other bacteria mutated and turned into human beings?
- Sponge fossils have been found identical to sponges today. So, some sponges stayed sponges while others turned into other complex sea life such as whales?
- Starfish fossils are identical to starfish today. So, some starfish stayed starfish while other starfish turned into sharks, tuna, and octopuses?
The list goes on and on. The only reason these fossils exist is because they were buried during Noah’s Flood. The similar creatures alive today are not “living fossils”; they are just the same kind of creatures that survived the Flood.
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
~ Psalm 145:16
