Land plants evolved one third of a billion years ago. The fossil evidence shows how they evolved.
The Facts Are .....
Dr Clifford Burdick has found fossil pollen grains in Hatatai Shale deposits of the Grand Canyon which have been classified as Precambrian. Pollen from seed-bearing plants should not be found in rock this old because evolutionary theory states that the Precambrian period was long before seed plants were supposed to have evolved. Dr Burdick conducted a controlled experiment when he analysed the rock samples to ensure that the pollen was not contamination from the air.

According to evolutionary theory, pine trees could not have appeared any earlier than 350 million years ago. However, fossil pine pollen has been found in shale layers of the Grand Canyon which are assessed at 1.5 billion years old. This is definitely well before the theoretical time of the appearance of pines, and indicates how erroneous age-dating methods are, and therefore the evolutionary timetable.
