Where are they found? How old are they? How are they extracted? This one-of-a-kind book explains how coal and oil are formed, how the Grand Canyon was created, how to interpret the geologic column from a creationist perspective, and how to identify various fossils. It refutes the horse and whale evolutionary models and explains the four Cs of biblical creation and compares this model with evolution's model of time, chance, struggle, and death. Filled with scores of full-color photos and illustrations, this quality book explains everything about fossils from a creationist perspective while also demonstrating the shortcomings of the evolutionary model of fossils. Dr. Gary Parker relies upon not only a thorough education of paleontology, but also many years of experience in the field to pen this scholarly work. Here are the scientific answers to the puzzling questions about fossils that even non-scientists can understand. 8 1/2 x 11 Casebound 80 pages.
