3. Evolution of Life Through Geologic Time

THIS DIAGRAM SHOWS THE PROGRESSION OF LIFE

FROM CYANOBACTERIA TO HOMO-SAPIENS

 

Here is the evidence that started me to believe that we evolved from a single cell to homo-sapiens over a 3.8 billion year period.

Fossils exist! There is no doubting that.

You can see them, hold them, they're tangible.

They occur in rocks that are hundreds of thousands or billions of years old and in an order/sequence that makes sense;

i.e. simple lifeforms in older rock, more complex life forms in younger rock.

The age of the rock can be determined via many different scientific approaches

The fossil record shows both extinctions and creations, with increasingly unfamiliar flora and fauna the deeper you go.

All of the fossils lie in the correct order by both stratigraphic and radioisotope dating.

 


The next two web pages present my most powerful argument for evolution.

Please give them more than a passing glance. Think about what they represent.
