Researchers Find Oldest Gecko Fossil Ever Discovered

Updated: Aug 19, 2019

Gecko fossil determined to have been fully "evolved" 100 million years ago:

This "new study provides evidence that geckos were definitely in Asia by 100 million years ago, and had already evolved their bizarre foot structure at that time."


Note that this is not a "transitional fossil" but determined to have been fully "evolved" 100 million years ago (based on an assumed c-14 decay rate). Never mind the fact that we can create an identical fossil in a laboratory in about 24 hours! Radiometric dating is typically used to determine how old a fossil is. All living things have carbon-14 as long as it is alive, once it dies, the c-14 begins to decay. Part of the problem is that evolutionist assume that the decay rate of c-14 has always remained the same. So they use today's c-14 decay rate to determine how old a fossil might be. If the decay rate changed at any point since the organism died, the conclusion is false. (Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5,730 years, in other words 5 grams of c-14 would decay to 2.5 grams after 5,730 years, etc. Some evolutionist are willing to admit that the c-14 decay rate may change in the future (due to things like "global warming," etc.) but they insist that the decay rate has always remained the same in the past!


The Word of God tells us how old the earth is and it is not even 10,000 years old. There are many biologist, geologist and paleontologist that are creationist and find no conflict between the geological and fossil record and the biblical account of a young earth. If our science contradicts the Bible, we simply have the science wrong!
