FOSSIL MUSEUM - SC0112: TRILOBITE


FOSSIL NO:SC0112
AGE:400 million years
TERM:Devonian
LOCATION:Morocco



OTHER INFORMATION:
The fossil record does not support the claims of the theory of evolution. On the contrary, when we examine the fossil record in the Earth"s strata, we see that living things emerged suddenly. The deepest stratum at which fossils have been found is the Cambrian, about 530 million years old. One of the fossils found most frequently in this stratum are those of tribolites. In the world of 530 million years ago, trilobites had eyes composed of many lenses—an excellent structure that allowed them to see to hunt and swim toward their prey. This sophisticated structure has dealt a serious blow to the theory of evolution.

  1. There are quite a few Precambrian fossils, actually. And trilobites are far from the first living things, or the first to have eyes. Metazoans acquired multiple strands of HOX genes (those responsible for sensory organs) quite early.
