Crustaceans Against Change

"Crustaceans Against Change" is the headline of an article in scienceNOW 4 Dec 2003 about a fossil ostracod (a tiny shellfish) found in Herefordshire, UK and studied by palaeontologists at University of Leicester, UK. They were able to study the fine details of its anatomy because it was rapidly mineralised after being buried in volcanic ash. The fossil indicates that ostracods "have had essentially the same anatomy for a record breaking 425 million years."

Editorial Comment: Yet another excellent example of a creature whose oldest fossil is the same as living specimens, no help to the theory of Evolution and wonderful support for the Genesis statement that all creatures were created to reproduce after their kind, just as Genesis says they were created to do. (Ref. ostracod, crustacean, fossil)
