Evidences II: The Tale of a Trilobite
This is the second GRI video examining the topic of evidence and what can be reasonable known about the ancient past based on what we can see today. The proceeding video, "Evidences: The Record and the Flood" looks at evidence left behind from the massive flood recorded in the first book of the Bible, Genesis. In this video, the emphasis is more on what fossils tell us about ancient organisms and their origin.
What do Fossils Tell Us?
Fossils are fascinating objects that give us information about animals and plants of the past, but what do fossils tell us about origins? In this session of Fundamentals of Faith and Science, we explore the fossil record and its main features, as well as the different interpretations that have been proposed for its formation.
Design In Fossil Organisms
Have you ever had the opportunity to examine a real fossil? Maybe you have seen dinosaur bones or shells encased in rock. Do these remains of once living organisms look less designed than the creatures we find living around us? How might the same engineering challenges faced by living creatures have been solved by these ancient creatures? What do the conclusions we draw tell us about the Creator of these ancient yet elegant organisms? Shelley Quinn and Tim Standish, PhD
