This was in the news a while ago.

 

https://www.scienced...50203104131.htm

 

"But the researchers say that the organisms' lack of evolution actually supports Charles Darwin's theory of evolution."... you can't be serious! So stasis proves evolution now?!? This actually reaffirms the theory that evolution can't be falsified. People always see what they very strongly *wish* to see, and it is getting ridiculous. 

 

Did anyone else have similar thoughts when this came out?

Oops, I didn't mean to put the link as the thread title. And I can't see any way to edit it. Admins can you please change the thread title to:

"It seems astounding that life has not evolved for more than 2 billion years -- nearly half the history of Earth," said J. William Schopf, a UCLA professor of earth, planetary and space sciences in the UCLA College who was the study's lead author. "Given that evolution is a fact, this lack of evolution needs to be explained."

The Tuatara Lizard (200 million years).
Avocets (65 million years)
Wollemi Pine (150 million years)
Ferns (180 million years)
Nightcap Oak (20 million years, based on fossilized nut)
Maple Tree (30-50 million years/ Eocene)
Jellyfish (500 million years)
Alligators (75 million years)

Sponge, Nucha naucum - (220 million years)
Octopus - (90 million years)http://creation.com/...octopus-fossils
Dragonflies. (can't find a date, but they were a lot bigger but that's all, I guess the Carboniferous)
Laonastes Rodent (10 million years up, can't find exact date)
Millipedes. (3-400 million years, aprox)
