Darwin himself first discovered that ginkgo leaf, which has left abundant fossil remains in Earth"s geologic layers, has never changed. But in contrast to Darwin"s assumptions, the ginkgo is not the only living fossil that has survived to the present day. The many living fossil specimens displayed in this book and thousands of others displayed in museums definitely refute Darwin.
