REPORTS CONCERNING FAMOUS DOMINICAN AMBER REFUTING THE IDEA OF THE EVOLUTION OF LIFE

1- A LIZARD SKULL IN DOMINICAN AMBER

Organisms such as various species of insect, wasps, ants, termites and flies are among the commonest found in amber. Vertebrate fossils are rarely encountered in amber. This lizard skulls is one of the very few such specimens. There are two amber specimens of the lizard Anolis, which is the subject of scientific research. Both specimens still have their soft tissues and scales. The researcher Michael Polcyn studied the lizard contained in the amber using X-say computerized tomography. This study determined that the lizard in the amber had a similar appearance to contemporary specimens, as well as in many fine details. Lizards have never changed for millions of years, and today still have the same characteristics with which God first created them.

INSECTS IN A FROG’S STOMACH IN AMBER

Although insects are generally found alone in amber, they can occasionally, as in this case, be seen together with vertebrates. The insects eaten by this 23-million-year-old frog before it was imprisoned in amber can still be seen in its stomach.  The insects in the frog’s stomach were examined under the microscope at magnifications from 15 times to 90 times. Some of the insects are stuck to the upper surface of the frog’s 7-mm-long tongue.  The first photograph shows the position of the frog’s tongue and stomach contents. The three arrows at the bottom of the figure indicate the tongue. The fourth arrow at the top indicates the insects. The second photograph shows the insects in the other sections of the stomach. Because the insects here are semi-digested, they cannot be identified. The first arrow shows the completely preserved antennae, while the second arrow shows the disintegrated parts of the insect.

 The conclusions from all the research around the frog preserved in amber are as follows:
- There is no difference between the inhabitants of the animal kingdom 25 million years ago and those living today.

- Frogs had the same prefect structures they possess today 25 million years ago.
- Just like their present-day counterparts, insects living in the Dominican forests had extraordinary abilities.

- The food chain in the animal world was the same 25 million years ago as it is today. Frogs in that period ate insects in order to survive.

The body structures, life styles and behavior of the living things preserved by being fossilized in Dominican amber prove that no such thing as evolution ever took place.
God has created living things within a perfect order, and the fossils inside amber document the fact that living things remain unchanged despite the passage of tens or even hundreds of millions of years .    


“ANTS ARE EXPERIENCED FUNGUS FARMERS

This headline appeared in the 25 March, 2008, issue of the scientific web site Science Daily. Scientists investigating Dominican amber carried out a wide-ranging study lasting 15 years into the perfect abilities of ants.  A total of 91 species of ant were studied, including 65 leaf-cutter ants.

The report concentrated on leaf-eating ants. The distinguishing feature of these ants is the way they cut up leaves. But they do not eat these leaves they cut. Instead, they use them to grow the fungi on which they feed. One specimen of these ants, which work just like farmers, was trapped in Dominican amber 25 million years ago. The ant, perfectly preserved exactly as it was on that day, aroused the interest of scientists. The scientists who investigated the fossil ant, which possessed flawless abilities, with leaf-eating ants alive today determined that their features were exactly the same, and described the ant in question as a ‘living fossil.’

SPIDER BLOOD FOUND IN A 20-MILLION-YEAR-OLD SPIDER FOSSIL

This report about a Manchester University scientist finding spider blood (hemolymph*) in 20-million-year-old Dominican amber appeared on the Science Daily web site on 30 September, 2005. Two droplets of blood were identified in this 20-million-year-old amber containing a spider of the species Filistatidae, which is found widely in South America and the Caribbean. These droplets of blood are highly significant as the first spider blood to be discovered in amber.

As can be seen from this amber specimen, spiders of the species Filistatidae living 20 million years ago were created with the same perfect circulatory systems as specimens alive today.
