Unchanged in 300 Million Years?

This is Ken Ham, and our full-size family attraction, Noah’s Ark, is now open.


Some species of “caddisfly larvae” actually spin silk structures—underwater! In fact, debris sticks to the silk and it becomes camouflage.

Well, researchers discovered fossilized caddisfly structures that they say are almost 300 million years old.

But these silk structures are the same as the ones caddisfly larvae build today! How did they remain unchanged over 300 million years of evolution? And there is evidence that the silk may not even be fully fossilized. So how do silk proteins last for hundreds of millions of years? They can’t!

This find confirms God’s Word. Caddisflies were designed by God, and their silk structures were buried during the global Flood.
