One of the main contentious issues between creationists and evolutionists — how fossils were formed gradually, over millions of years, or as a result of catastrophes on a planetary scale?
The fossils that scientists find in different parts of the globe presented a wide variety of life forms ( Fig. 70 ). It and entire organisms frozen in the ice, and the bones or teeth, hardened as a result of mineralization, and insects trapped deep in the amber, and imprints of leaves or other parts of plants, bones, and animal tracks, etc. are Often preserved parts of the skeleton, but sometimes in the fossils become more and soft tissue.
The process of fossilization seems mysterious to scientists. After all, nobody has been able to reproduce it in the laboratory. Evolutionists assume that the remains of plants and animal remains appeared in different layers of the Earth as a result of a lengthy process. In the textbooks of Geology usually given the following explanation. The mineralization occurs in a gradual accumulation of salts in the tissues. Molecules of organic substances being washed away, replaced by the salts of silicon. As examples tend to be imprints of leaves and feathers of birds, formed by the indentation of objects in the soft silt, which then, after getting hard, turned to stone. It is obvious that animals,corpses have been found completely preserved in blocks of ice, died suddenly.
For a more complete understanding of the process of formation of fossils refer to the examples. It is known that all the dead in our days, living beings decompose. Sleeping fish floats on the surface of the water and gradually starts to succumb to the processes of decomposition. The corpses of the dead animals on land either eaten by predators or decompose rapidly. Dead plants are also destroyed in relatively short periods of time. Continue reading
Fossils are living objects of former geological epochs, people discovered during earthworks or exposed through erosion. Fossils preserve for us important information about the era in which they were formed, animals and plants of those times, some of which still exist today and others long extinct. Usually fossils are the bodies of animals and plants turned to stone, or fragments thereof. But even if the animal or plant nothing, you can sometimes detect a depression in a rock, exactly corresponding to the shapes of his body. On soft sand or in the mud animal could leave footprints.
Fossils reveal secrets of the countless life forms that once inhabited Earth. Fossils range is very wide – from huge fossilized animals and plants to insects stuck in the resin of coniferous trees which over millions of years turned into amber waves of grain. Fossils are direct evidence of the history of life on Earth, one that goes back 3.8 billion years. While the fragmentary nature of the geological record, scientists have managed to collect a huge amount of information about the evolution of life throughout the history of our planet. Thus fossils – it’s not only fossil bones of dinosaurs, this slepaks the whole world of nature of the past, frozen in stone.
The use of fossils in the interior decoration and landscape – new, ultra-modern direction in design. This unique combination of ancient material and modern processing methods, beauty, natural forms of living beings with magnificent textures of decorative and ornamental stones. We can offer You the following “living stone”: Continue reading
Season of archaeological excavations is about to end because summer is over and there are not more than a month, for the discovery of new antiquities. In Lugansk region, archaeologists have found the remains of a giant reconocido and skolopendr, which suggests that the climate in these areas was favorable for them. According to scientists, these insects are poorly studied and remains more than 250 million years. Perhaps some of them studied in other countries, but for Donbas this finding is significant. It should be noted that Donbas is the region where archeologists are constantly finding the remains of ancient animals and the first men, perhaps it is because in these places there are major deposits of coal, then there are people every day deep into the soil, finding new Antiques, as well as the remains of animals and insects.
Due to such findings, scientists will try to understand why insects evolved, and why everything in our world has become so small. Imagine that wingspan usual dragonflies reached 70 centimeters, it is possible to assume that insects that in our time its bigger, in those days could be even bigger. It should also be noted that dinosaurs were the largest animals on our planet, if not Bratva attention to marine life. Perhaps there were a huge-sized whales, which eat plankton and did not cause anyone problems.
Hardly anyone will be able to sink to the bottom of the Pacific or the Atlantic ocean and discover the remains of an ancient whale or shark. It can be assumed that they also had the huge size, but in the process of evolution to them what happened. Possibly increased radiation level, and maybe Vice versa decreased. These challenges and will delve archaeologists and scientists, because they have to find out what happened to our world and why many animals and plants evolved.
Archaeologists want to understand how insects evolved till our time
Lugansk scientists found near Stakhanov’s city remains of insects, which are more than 250 million years. Some species are little studied and could have in the past, giant size. Scientists do not exclude that the location of the finds is the richest remains of insects of the Carboniferous period in the territory of the former USSR. Continue reading
