Sep 8, 2008 … A gecko foot encased in amber has been dubbed the oldest gecko fossil ever discovered, according to researchers from Oregon State University and the Natural History Museum in London.1 The amber deposits containing the remarkably well-preserved fossil, discovered in Myanmar, are said to be around 100 million years old, which would double the “date” of the earliest-known gecko, making it “43 to 56 million years older” than the prior record holder.2
The discovery has been given the customary evolutionary interpretation, but the evidence presented by this gecko foot actually fits much better within a biblical creation framework.
First, the specimen shows no macroevolutionary change for the supposedly vast time period between the fossilized and living geckos. This is not a transitional foot. Instead, the fossilized gecko had the same complete and fully formed “bizarre foot structure” as geckos that are alive today.
