Following is the article that I read at the Discovery website and I was baffled by it and I just could not hold myself but to comment on it.
“Some 312 million years ago, a mayfly landed at the muddy edge of a puddle and then flew away. The mud of the tropical floodplain happened to be the perfect consistency to retain a detailed impression of the mayfly’s body — including details of its body segments and marks made by its claws.”
Note: What I understand from this Mayfly preserved fossil is that how the present species of Mayfly has been very closely/exactly related to the ancestor 300 Million year old Fossil.
Our Universe is balanced between Creation and Evolution and the Evolution is but the part of the Creation for these mind blowing discoveries about our own planet and about different life around us cannot just happen as a mistake or by itself. Evolution is a process for the intelligent life to survive in different natural circumstances, but it doesn’t defies the existence of the Creation. 300 Million years are enough for Mayfly to become a house fly or a Mosquito but Mayfly remained Mayfly and if you compare the fossil and the pictures of the present species, you can clearly see the similarity.
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.” [The Holy Quran 2:164]
Say: “Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.
[The Holy Quran 29:20]
