Plant cells accomplish a process that no laboratory can: photosynthesis. In a plant"s cell, organelles called chloroplasts absorb sunlight and use it in conjunction with water and carbon dioxide gas to produce starch. This is the first link of the food chain and the food source for all living creatures on Earth. Details of this very complex process are still not exactly understood, and it is impossible for evolutionary mechanisms to explain this complexity. The fossilized willow leaf pictured is 50 million years old. Willows that lived tens of millions of years ago employed photosynthesis in the same way that they do today. They reproduced in the same way and displayed the same features. This correspondence pushes evolutionists into a desperate situation and once again stresses the fact that living organisms are created by God.
