The Blue Mussel: currently found in worldwide distribution. The fossil form, assigned to the named Cretaceous Period, is virtually identical to the current form. This is called Stasis of Living Forms to Fossil Forms or "Living Fossils". These observations support a short age of the earth and creation of kinds of life forms and not evolution.

Engineered Adaptability: Trait Selection Is Internal, Not External
Dr Randy J Guliuzza 1/31/19
He comments that the same data can often be put within different theories. Organism adjustment to a changed environment may not be random. There may be “preferential sorting.” But that “the preferential sorting of organisms with certain conditions is often predictable…that chance is an unlikely explanation for most sorting events.”
As an example he uses related fish with normal (seeing eyes) in a fresh water stream but a (non-seeing eyes) in caves. .” There is a turning off or on of eye genes during embryogenesis. He comments that “even those who promote evolution or intelligent design use some manifestation of volition to explain preferential sorting."
He and some others have promoted the concept of “immanent selection”. “Immanent refers to something inherently within-i.e., built in.’” It is a “type of internal selection”.
He then refers to engineers that when they develop a new product they attempt to anticipate new stressors to the product, and build in adaptive mechanisms. He goes onto use the Iguanas both ocean going and land dwelling as having the same genetic information, in many, regarding the electrolyte pumps for sodium and thus “the ability to modify the composition of the secreted fluid may give animals flexibility in the acclimating or adapting to changes in dietary salinity.”
He, and ICR, have called current studies using this model the “continuous environmental tracking (CET) model...Research shows that creatures not only have such elements, they do, in fact use them to track changing conditions.”

Also, please note that this does not address the harmful effects observed during the mutational breakdown of the genome.
The Mosasaurs, are water-dwelling reptiles, found in strata throughout most all the continents. Aetosaurs are land dwelling reptiles also found on several continents. The trilobite Carolinites,water dwelling, are found through out most the the continents of the earth. This supports one land mass that was covered by large mud slurries and then broken apart into different continents. This is also supportive of a young earth-thousands not billions of years. See Link below for professional discussions of radiometric dating and geology.

1"And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the Lord shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,
2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,
3 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.
4 And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.
5 So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.
6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day." KJV
