Here we go again. Another piece of science fiction. As usual, not about the issue of the complexity of life - something we can see clearly all around us. Rather, about the half billion years.

Take a good guess about the time-line of fossils. We see areas of land where the geological strata - which has been attributed by some scientists to have been laid down over a period of millions of years - criss-crossed with fossilized trees that extend right through millions of years of strata as if someone teleported them there.

All this guess-work regarding millions of years might have been credible in the 1700s, using the limited knowledge that they had back then. But present-day science shows that it isn't even guess-work nowadays. It is pure science fiction.

The remarkably well preserved fossil in the article is no more than 5,000 to 6,000 years old... and possibly a lot less.
