2. Fossil Specimens Discovered in North and South America (5/5)

Fossil Specimens Discovered in Peru

Peru map

Peru's geological and geographical structure reveals different fossils in different regions of the country. The country has three main regions: the coastal region, the central region that includes the Andes Mountains, and the Amazon Basin that includes the Amazon rain forest. Most fossil beds lie in the Andes and areas in the north of the country.

One of Peru's major fossil beds is the Cajamarca Formation in the north of the country. Limestone comprises the main part of the formation's rock structure. Another important fossil bed is the Pisco Formation, well known for its fossil fish. This bed has yielded fossils of thousands of different marine creatures, including whales, dolphins, sea lions, penguins and turtles. This formation, approximately 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from the coast, provides important information about Peru's geology in very early times.

The most significant fact revealed by Peru's fossil discoveries is that they too refute evolution. All the fossil research engaged in by evolutionists since the mid-19th century, hoping to find fossils that could support the theory of evolution, have been in vain. Despite all their endeavours, not a single fossil that could be presented as evidence for the theory has ever been unearthed. All the findings obtained from excavations and research has proved that, contrary to the expectations of the theory of evolution, living things emerged suddenly, fully and flawlessly formed. They also show that living things never undergo any changes since the moment they first come into being. This is proof that they are never subjected to any evolutionary process.

The Pisco Formation, fossil

The Pisco Formation in the south of the country is one of the major fossil beds.

The Pisco Formation, Limestone, Cajamarca

Limestone in Cajamarca harbors many fossil samples. Like all others, the fossil samples gathered from Pisco reveal that evolution has never taken place.


bivalve, bivalves, fossil


Age: 23-5 million years old
Size: 7.6 centimeters (3 in)
Location: Casamarca, Peru
Period: Miocene

Bivalves 23-5 million years old, the same as today's bivalves, invalidate the theory of evolution. The same for millions of years, they were created, not evolved.


bivalve, fossil


Age: 208-146 million years old
Size: Approximately 8 centimeters (3.25 in)
Location: Bambamarca, Cajamarca, Peru
Period: Jurassic

The bivalve in the picture is 208-146 million years old, showing that the bivalves of years ago are the same as the ones living today. This refutes the theory of evolution.

Location: Bambamarca, Cajamarca, Peru
Period: Jurassic

The fossil record is replete with organisms that have remained unchanged for hundreds of millions of years. Another example of these is the 208-146-million-year-old fossil bivalve pictured. Like all other fossil findings, this one also refutes evolution.

Fossil Specimens Discovered in Argentina

Argentina map

Most fossils discovered in Argentina come from the region of Patagonia, the name given to the southern parts of Chile and Argentina on the South American continent. To the east of the Andes is the region of Patagonia that forms part of Argentina. Today, very different life forms such as penguins, whales, seals, wild ostriches and sea lions, can be found in this region, which is also rich in terms of the fossil record.

One fossil bed in the region is the Ischigualasto Formation. Geological research has revealed that some 230 million years ago, the region was a flood basin that received abundant seasonal rain and possessed active volcanoes. This fossil bed possesses specimens of a large number of mammals and marine life forms belonging to the Triassic Period (248 to 206 million years ago). The importance of the region was finally realized in the 1950s, after which a great many excavations were carried out.

One fossil field in Argentina is the Jaramillo forest in Santa Cruz, consisting of petrified trees 350 million years old. It is also an important example showing that many plant species have remained unchanged for hundreds of millions of years, having never undergone evolution.

Fossil Specimens Discovered in Chile

Chile, map

Fossils are encountered in many regions outside the Atacama Desert in the north of the country. One of the wealthiest regions in terms of fossil specimens is Patagonia, in the south of the country. There are also fossil beds in the Andes Mountains.

Fossils belonging to many different species of mammal, marine creatures, reptile and plant are obtained from Chile's fossil fields. One of the best-known fossil fields is the Quiriquina Formation, most of whose fossils belong to the Cretaceous Period. Thanks to them, important information has been obtained concerning marine life in the Cretaceous Period. Some fossil beds in central Chile, particularly in the Andes, are well known for their wealth of fossil mammals.

All the fossils obtained from these regions once again place Darwinists in a terrible predicament, because they reveal that living things underwent no change throughout geological periods. To put it another way, whatever form a species had when it first appears in the fossil record, it maintained over tens or even hundreds of millions of years, until either becoming extinct or else surviving down to the present day. This is clear proof that living things never underwent evolution.

As the fossil findings show, species on Earth appeared suddenly, not gradually by way of evolution. Sudden appearance implies creation. God created all living things in a flawless manner, from nothing. The fossil findings once again reveal this truth.

Andes region, fossil bed

Fossils of various mammals were uncovered from the Andes region.


Araucaria, fossil

Araucaria Cone Slice

Age: 165 million years old
Size: 5.6 centimeters (2.2 in) by 7 centimeters ( 2.7 in)
Location: Jaramillo, Santa Cruz, Patagonia, Argentina
Period: Jurassic, Callovian

This slice of a 165-million-year-old fossil Araucaria cone was obtained from the petrified forest in Jaramillo. Displaying the cone with its all details, this fossil is one of the examples that this species never evolved. The features of today's cones were the same as those of cones of 165 million years ago.


fossil, crab


Age: 23-5 million years old
Location: Rio de la Plata, Patagonia, Argentina
Period: Miocene

One of the organisms frequently encountered in the fossil record is the crab. One of the proofs that there's no difference between the crabs of millions of years ago and ones alive today is the 23-5-million-year-old crab pictured. This crab is the same as the ones living today.


Araucaria, fossil, cone

Araucaria Cone

Age: 208-146 million years old
Size: Each half is 7.6 centimeters (3 in)
Location: Cerro Cuadrado, Patagonia, Argentina
Formation: Petrified Forest
Period: Jurassic

This fossil Araucaria cone, 208-146 million years old and identical to the ones of today, is evidence that the theory of evolution is hollow, and a major deceit. The complete fossil record puts forth that creation of God is a clear fact.


cormorant skull, fossil

Cormorant Skull

Age: 18 million years old
Size: 12.7 centimeters (5 in)
Location: Chile
Period: Miocene

The cormorant skull pictured, 18 million years old, is evidence that cormorants from prehistoric times were the same as ones living today. This lack of any difference shows that the birds didn't change over millions of years—in other words, they didn't evolve.


cormorants, fossil

Cormorant Skull

Age: 18 million years old
Size: 15.2 centimeters (6 in)
Location: Chile
Period: Miocene

The cormorant is a seabird in the family Phalacrocoracidae and known to have 38 different species currently living.

Fossil records show that cormorants of millions of years ago had the same features of cormorants living today. Proving that the birds didn't evolve, this once again dooms the evolutionists to defeat.


crabs, crab, fossil


Age: 25 million years old
Size: 15 centimeters (6 in)
Location: Concepción, Southern Chile
Period: Oligocene

Fossil record refutes the evolution in any aspect. One of the fossil examples refuting the theory of evolution is the 25-million-year-old fossil crab pictured. Remained unchanged for millions of years, this crab confirms once again that the species didn't evolve, since this fossil is no different from crabs still living today.
