Plants in the fossil records appear with features similar to plants alive today. This shows that they were created, like all other living things. The ginkgo leaf pictured is 65 million years old, proving that ginkgos have not evolved. The general lines of leaf and its vein structure have been fossilized. This 12 centimeter (4.8 in) fossil shows that ginkgos have been the same for millions of years. There exists no difference between them now and those ginkgos that grew in the past.
