Darwinists maintain that marine life forms represent the ancestors of reptiles. According to this claim?which is uncorroborated by any scientific finding?fish left stranded without water were one day forced to emerge onto dry land, thus giving rise to reptiles. Yet not one single fossilized half-fish, half-reptile to support this scenario has ever been encountered. Among all the hundreds of thousands of fossils found so far, fish always appear as distinct fish, and reptiles as obvious reptiles. Every fossil discovered is identical to its counterparts alive today, or else belongs to a species that once existed, but has become extinct. One example is the 65-million-year-old fossil crocodile pictured, a proof that crocodiles have always existed as crocodiles.
