Re: Genesis species

Maybe it is preposterous.

Oh, absolutely it is preposterous. It is certainly a lie.

But he said they would be numerous in all stratas.

No he didn't. Another lie. You must really enjoy lying. I suppose that everyone has to have a hobby.

Not all layers contain fossils ICANT. Igneous layers, for instance, would not be expected to contain fossils. This is about as simple as geology gets and you still contrive to get it wrong. It would be tragic if it weren't so darn funny.

Oh and the plural of stratum is strata.

At the present we have a known 2 million species on earth.

I love the way you state that with such confidence, when otherwise, you don't believe a word that scientists tell you.

It's not as simple as that. Estimates vary enormously as to how many species have even been described. There is no master list and it is difficult to say how many species have been described twice or more.

Scientist say there could be 100 million species on earth today.

That sounds too high. Which scientist says that? Jerry Coyne for instance hazards a guess at about ten million.

Scientist say 99.9% of the life forms that have lived on earth are extinct.

Oh look! You got something right! Well, except you failed to pluralise the word "scientist", but it's a start I suppose.

So if they are correct there should be millions of fossils of extinct life forms found in the many different layers...

And that's what they do find. So I guess you'll accept that they are correct and embrace the Theory of Evolution, right?

Then again I may just be being preposterous.

Well why break the habit of a lifetime?
