Fossil is the name given to the remains or traces of a plant or animal preserved in geologic strata since prehistoric times—or in some cases, remains preserved encased in amber. Fossils collected from all over the world are one of our most important sources of information about the organisms that have existed on Earth since the very earliest times, even hundreds of millions of years ago. Research into fossils enables us to learn about extinct plants and animals, as well as earlier forms of species still in existence today. Thanks to this information, we learn which life forms existed at what epochs in time, what these life forms' features were, and whether they resembled present-day species. The fact revealed by the fossil discoveries is that Creation, not blind coincidences, represents the origin of living things.

Age: 50 million years

Period: Eocene

Location: Poland

These insects, members of the sub-order
Archaeognathaof the order Thysanura (bristle-
tails), generally inhabit rocky areas. They have
survived for millions of years without changing
any of their features.

Every new fossil discovery only increases the
predicament in which Darwinists find them-
selves—and also reveal, yet again, that Creation
is an evident truth. Countless life forms such as
the Archaeognatharefute the theory of evolution
and testify that they were created.

JUMPING SPIDER

Age: 50 million years

Period: Eocene

Location: Poland

Some species of jumping spider are at the same time masters of camouflage. TheMyrmarachne
species of jumping spider, for instance, imitates ants—and not only their appearance, but also
their behavior. The spider, having two more legs than an ant's six, raises its two front legs in
such a way as to resemble antennae, thus mimicking the ant's six-legged appearance.

But how did this spider compare its own appearance to that of ants? And with what intelli-
gence did it work out how to minimize the differences between the two species?

Moreover, spiders that lived millions of years ago possessed exactly the same ability. It is im-
possible for Darwinists to account for this in terms of any evolutionary mechanism. No doubt
that, like all other living things, spiders act under the inspiration of God and use the charac-
teristics and abilities that He bestowed on them.

Only the two insects on the sides are
ants, the one in the middle being a jump-
ing spider, which has one more pair of
legs than ants.
