The origin of Reptiles .....

Regarding the origin of reptiles , evolution fails . Darwinism claims , reptiles evolved from amphibians. But , no discovery to verify this claim has ever been made. Rather , comparisons between amphibians and reptiles show there are huge physiological gaps between them and a "half reptile-half amphibian" would... have not survive .
An example of the physiological gaps between the two groups is the different structures of their eggs.
Amphibians lay their eggs in water, jelly-like, transparent and permeable membrane. their eggs are ideal for development in water.
Reptiles,lay their eggs on land, their eggs are designed to survive there. The hard shell , also known as an "amniotic egg," allows air in, but is impermeable to water. therefor, the water needed is kept inside the egg.
Biologist Michael Denton explains the details of the evolutionist problem on this matter:

Every textbook of evolution asserts that reptiles evolved from amphibia but none explains how the major distinguishing adaptation of the reptiles, the ...amniotic egg, came about gradually as a result of a successive accumulation of small changes. The amniotic egg of the reptile is vastly more complex and utterly different to that of an amphibian. There are hardly two eggs in the whole animal kingdom which differ more fundamentally… The origin of the amniotic egg and the amphibian - reptile transition is just another of the major vertebrate divisions for which clearly worked out evolutionary schemes have never been provided. Trying to work out, for example, how the heart and aortic arches of an amphibian could have been gradually converted to the reptilian and mammalian condition raises absolutely horrendous problems.

Evolutionists did claim that the Seymouria was a transitional form between amphibians and reptiles. Claiming Seymouria was "the primitive ancestor of reptiles." But , subsequent fossil discoveries show that reptiles were living on earth some 30 million years before Seymouria. Evolutionists had to dismiss this claim . NOTHING NEW THERE .

The oldest Seymouria fossils are found in the Lower Permian layer, or 280 million years ago. Yet the oldest known reptile species, Hylonomus and Paleothyris, were found in lower Pennsylvanian layers, making them some 315-330 million years old.
