Flowers for T. Rex
The evolution of flowers is a big mystery for Darwinists. Charles Darwin actually called it an abominable mystery. A few years ago, evolutionists assumed that the plants that flourished at the time when dinosaurs roamed the world were very much different from what they are today.
However, fossilised dinosaur dung (technically known are coprolites) show that dinos actually ate plants.
A recent discovery suggests the need for a major revision to the evolutionary concept of flowers. According to Science Daily:
“Drilling cores from Switzerland have revealed the oldest known fossils of the direct ancestors of flowering plants. These beautifully preserved 240-million-year-old pollen grains are evidence that flowering plants evolved 100 million years earlier than previously thought, according to a new study in the open-access journal Frontiers in Plant Science.”
Once again, a single discovery upturns old evolutionary “truths”.
Incidentally, the model based on Genesis predicted that dinosaurs and flowering plants existed together.
