Clam Up about Living Fossils

When biblical creationists discuss living fossils and point out that critters remain unchanged over alleged millions of years, it is common for internet misotheists to wave off the problem and want us to be quiet. It bothered Papa Darwin his ownself, and he admitted that there is little to no difference between fossil forms and living counterparts.

Remember, the fossil record is supposed to display the plentiful transitional forms in the evolutionary tree of life. One excuse evolutionists have for lack of changes is stasis: things did not change because they had no need. Ridiculous. Lack of change is hostile to evolution but is expected by creationists.

When creationists discuss living fossils such as a newly-discovered clam, evolutionists want us to be quiet. Living fossils are a big problem for them.

How scientists are able to tell different species of clams apart is beyond the ken of this child. A bivalve mollusk (clams are in that group) was discovered and determined to be one of those troublesome living fossils. Interestingly, many whales are filter feeders, gulping down huge amounts of krill and such, then filtering out the good stuff for food. Bivalve mollusks are also filter feeders, using their gills. The Master Engineer enabled this filtration to be important to aquatic ecosystems.
Evolutionary philosophy states the fossil record is a record of the gradual and slow evolution of life forms that all came from a single common ancestor impossibly long ago. Yet, the fossils don’t document this. It has long been known strange life forms appear abruptly and undergo either stasis (no change) or extinction.

Living fossils are those living creatures—plant or animal—that are almost identical to those in the fossil record and were thought to be extinct. . . .

Recently, “a small clam, previously known only from fossils, has recently been found living at Naples Point, near Santa Barbara[, CA].”
