Old bacteria never die suggests an article in Nature vol. 407, pp 844, 19 October 2000 about bacteria found in salt crystals believed by the author to be 250 million years old. The bacteria are a type of Bacillus, a large and varied genus of bacteria found all over the world. Partial analysis of the bacteria’s DNA suggests it is similar to Bacillus marismortui that can live in the present day high salt environment of the Dead Sea.

Editorial Comment: No matter how old evolutionist scientists believe these bacteria to be, the fact that they can immediately classify them into an existing genus of present day living bacteria is good evidence organisms were created as separate kinds and have and do reproduce after their own kind, and do not evolve.
