What Happend During The Cambrian Period

Harun Yahya

We had mentioned earlier that it is now thought that Allah created the universe in the big bang. The whole universe, planets, stars and our own earth were formed after this enormous explosion.

To begin with, there were no livings beings on our planet, but then Allah created all living things on earth; birds, insects, trees, flowers, fish, tigers, butterflies, elephants and giraffes etc.

Well, do you know when the first living creatures appeared? This happened during the period called the Cambrian about 500 million years ago. The first creatures that lived during this period were ones like snails, worms and starfish. The creatures that lived during the Cambrian period also prove that the theory of evolution is completely wrong. How come?

These creatures appeared all of a sudden during the Cambrian period. Before them, no other living beings existed on the planet. The fact that these creatures appeared out of nowhere and all of a sudden is proof that Allah created them in an instant. If the theory proposed by evolutionists were right, then these creatures must have evolved gradually from simpler ancestors. However, these creatures have neither ancestors nor any transitional forms that lived before them. No fossil hunter (palaeontologist) has ever come across such a transitional form. Fossils show us that these creatures-just like all other living beings-suddenly appeared during the Cambrian period, without any features missing, and with no ancestors from whom they evolved. That is, Allah created them. Furthermore, these creatures that lived during the Cambrian period had very special features. For example, there used to be a creature called the trilobite that lived during the Cambrian period, but we do not see them now because they are extinct. The Trilobite had very complex but perfect eyes. Its eyes, as you can see on the right, were made of hundreds of honeycomb-shaped cells and these cells allowed it to see very clearly.

The trilobite, one of the earliest creatures on earth, had a very complex eye structure. Its perfect eyes are one of the proofs that Allah created it.

Do you think that a creature like this could just appear out of nowhere? If your little brother came to you and said, "I was sitting at the table last night and out of nowhere a fly appeared in front of me. I don't know where it came from but all of a sudden, it was produced there by chance. It had very interesting honeycomb-shaped eyes. But these were probably made by chance too."

What would you think at such a moment? Probably you would think that your brother is too small to realise the complicated nature of life. However, what is so strange is that evolutionists say that these creatures suddenly appeared in the seas. The eyes of flies today are very similar to the eyes that these creatures had. In that case, evolutionists are clearly wrong. Because they are so proud and arrogant, they do not want to admit that Allah has created all living things. They constantly fabricate stories, imaginary scenarios, and what are fairy tales to cover up the truth so that people move away from Allah.


The strange creatures that evolutionists claim once existed. In reality, such creatures have never lived.
