Examples of Living Fossils Refute
the Theory of Evolution

A 125-Million-Year-Old Scorpion Fly

Paleontology Has Declared the Fact of Creation through Living Fossils.

This 125-million-year-old member of the Mecoptera, is from Hebei, China. This one is a female with incredible detail preserved in the wings, which includes preserved color bands. There are a large number of these scorpion flies living today.


Insects are well represented in Liaoning and Hebei Provinces of China, with over 10,000 specimens representing over 500 species. Some of these insects, 125 million years old, are shown below.

A butterfly (Lepidoptera) with a wingspan greater than 5 centimeters from the lower Cretaceous (approximately 125 million years ago).

An 18-millimeter plant-dwelling insect from the lower Cretaceous (approximately 125 million years ago).

A 16-millimeter stonefly from the lower Cretaceous (approximately 125 million years ago).


A 125-Million-Year-Old Katydid

This example is a member of the Orpthoptera (which comprises grasshoppers and their kin) from the family Haglidae, reminiscent of present-day katydids, from Hebei, China. The details of this very large specimen have been very well preserved, including a color scale dating back 125 million years. As can be seen from the 27-millimeter ovipositor it used to bury its eggs in the soil, this is a female that shares exactly the same anatomical features as today’s katydids.

The Assassin Bug that Led to Darwin’s Death

Fossils refute evolution. This fact, one of the difficulties that faced Darwin’s theory 150 years ago, is now plain for all to see.

Assassin bugs are widespread all over the world and known so because of their speed and the way they poison their prey (Order Hemiptera). These 120-million-year-old fossil specimens are identical to assassin bugs living today.

A 50-Million-Year-Old Stingray

This 50-million-year-old stingray was found in Green River in Wyoming. The details in the tail of this perfectly preserved fossil are stiking, showing that this specimen is identical to present-day stingrays.
