Living Fossils book
Pack includes Living Fossils—Evolution: The Grand Experiment Vol 2 book, DVD & teachers manual, by Dr Carl Werner …
In 1938, the discovery of a large, unusual fish turned the scientific community on end. Dubbed a “living fossil”, the discovery of a coelacanth in South Africa shocked scientists around the world who thought this type of fish had died out millions of years prior during the process of evolution. Today, living fossils are organisms preserved in the fossil record that still exist in similar form today. Their existence challenges the core concepts of evolution and creates a fascinating debate among scholars. Do they indicate a younger earth than some have thought, placing the millions-of-years evolutionary timeline into question? Or do living fossils represent a deep mystery? Living Fossils, Vol. 2, Evolution: the Grand Experiment delves into these provocative questions. Includes 700 color images presented in an easy-to-read format. Ideal as a standalone study unit for schools and homeschoolers or easily integrated into existing curricula.
This astounding documentary shows that many modern animals and plants occur as fossils in rock layers that are ‘dinosaur era’. Yet museums don’t portray dinosaurs with modern organisms, reinforcing evolutionary ideas of origins. Living fossils provides powerful evidence that microbes-to-man evolution never happened.
