Fossil Termites

Fossil Termites

Coming up on today’s Creation Moments Minute – the unusual discovery of the most ancient termite nest ever found sheds light not only on termites but on evolution!

termitesThe termite nest discovered in the Big Bend National Park in Texas dates back to the time of the dinosaurs. The wood had been tunneled out in the same way modern termites tunnel wood. The nest was in the center of the wood, just as modern termites build their nests. These ancient termites had placed their droppings around the edge of the nest. Modern termites do the same thing to plug any air leaks and prevent drafts. In short, every evidence says that termites from the time of the dinosaurs behaved in the same way as modern termites.

That there was no evidence of any termite evolution in this nest agrees perfectly with the Bible’s claim that all things reproduce “after their kind.”
