Q: Fossil turtles . . . once extinct, now living?

Evolutionist Quote of the Week

“Christianity has fought, still fights, and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of god. Take away the meaning of his death. If Jesus was not the redeemer that died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing.”

– G. Richard Bozarth, The Meaning of Evolution, American Atheist, p. 30, Sept. 20, 1979.

A: In North West Queensland, Australia, scientists found some fossils of turtles that they thought had become extinct during the so-called Pleistocene period. This was about 50,000 years ago, according to the evolutionary time scale. Then about 90 kilometers, or 56 miles away, they found a new species of a living turtle. It turns out that this turtle appears to be the same as the fossils they found!

The remarkable thing was that the living turtles showed absolutely no signs of any evolutionary changes over the supposedly 50,000 years since the fossils were formed.

This turtle is just another example of a living specimen that appears to be identical to the fossils that supposedly formed many thousands, or sometimes millions of years ago according to evolution. We call these “living fossils.”

If most of the fossils we find today are the result of a worldwide flood that occurred in the days of Noah, then you would expect to find many of the same animals alive today. And this is what we do see—which fits with Genesis.
