The short book contained plates—each colored to approximate the shade of the strata—with illustrations of fossils typically found .   Following this logic, [Neil] Shubin predicted that if transitional forms existed, their fossils would be found in strata around million years old. Moreover, the rocks would have to be from freshwater rather than marine sediments, because late lobe-finned fish and early amphibians both lived in . According to Dr. Kitts it is impossible to prove either Darwinian or any other branch of evolution using the fossil record. More than that, the fossil record is compatible, again according to Kitts, even with the Theory of Special Creation [The idea that a god started it all whole and complete.].

A fossil (from Classical Latin: fossilis, literally "obtained by digging") is any preserved remains, impression, or trace of any once-living thing from a past geological es include bones, shells, exoskeletons, stone imprints of animals or microbes, objects preserved in amber, hair, petrified wood, oil, coal, and DNA remnants. The totality of fossils is known as the fossil record. According to the book, “The Dinosaur Project,” paleontological journalist Wayne Grady claims the period following this, from around to became “a period in North America where some of the most underhanded shenanigans in the history of science were conducted.” In what was known as “The Great Dinosaur Rush” or “Bone Wars,” Edward Drinker Cope of the Academy of Natural. ROCKS AND LAYERS We study Earth's history by studying the record of past events that is preserved in the layers of the rocks are the pages in our history book. Most of the rocks exposed at the surface of Earth are sedimentary--formed from particles of older rocks that have been broken apart by water or gravel, sand, and mud settle to the bottom in rivers, lakes, and oceans. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is quite serious about flying safety. If an aircraft crashes, the FAA will conduct an investigation called a Root Cause Analysis. This involves methodical detective work that tracks events from the moment of the crash back in time. Flight and voice data recorders are invaluable to the inquiry. Root Cause Analysis identifies the most obvious problem.
