Why do some life forms never really die?

In “Evolutionists Flaunt Falsifying Fossils” (November 26, 2011), Creation-Evolution Headlines

looks at stasis – the very old life forms that never seem to change:

Mongolian cells unchanged for a billion years: PhysOrg reported the discovery of fossil planktonic cells called tintinnids that appear virtually identical to those alive today, but are alleged to be as much as 715 million years old.


Namibian amoebas unchanged under Snowball Earth: The same Live Science article mentioned amoeba fossils and foraminifera estimated 715 million years old that had to endure the so-called “Snowball Earth” period when the Earth was covered in ice (talk about climate change). During this time before the mythical “Great Oxidation Event,” conditions on Earth must have been extremely different, yet these cells resemble those found in our warm seas. These were not dumb, primitive amoebas, either: “They also discovered amoebas that appeared to be building the same sort of shells.”

More. The explanations offered by Darwin’s men are hilarious.
