Stomata—fingerprints of the Designer!

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


On the underside of a plant’s leaf are structures called “stomata.” Now, These structures exchange gases … and release water vapor. They have guard cells that open the stomata during the day. And they close them at night to conserve water.

What’s amazing about stomata is that each plant has its own unique stomata fingerprint, if you will. And this is true even with what we find in the fossil record!

Fossil stomata for each species look just like the stomata on today’s plants! Over supposed millions of years of evolution, nothing’s changed!

Of course, this is because God created plants only a few thousand years ago.
