November 10, 2011 Liquid Gold

At first glance, it looks like needles or plant parts in honey. The yellow substance looks fluid, with bubbles working their way to the top.

In reality, those bubbles are frozen in time. They have been in the process of floating for 70 to 85 million years now.

What you are looking at is dinosaur feathers in amber.

The newsagent in our town (pop. 200) reckons dinosaurs are not real and can't be because the earth is only 5,000 years old. I feel weird everytime I pick up my papers now.

Those fossils were put there by the devil to corrupt your faith!

Well, does have a consistent position. Just stoopid.

Hell, show him the stones and tell him they are fossil cave-men!
