The Dragonfly Is ”150 Mllion Years” Old - But It Looks Very Modern

Joel Kontinen

Living fossils like the dragonfly are interesting because contrary to what evolution is supposed to be about (i.e change) , many kinds of animals have changed very little (if all) since their early appearance in the fossil record.

Modern dragonflies look very much like dragonflies “150 million years” ago. Once again, the after its kind principle explains living fossils much better than Darwinian storytelling.
