The fossil record is perceived as one of the greatest proofs for the theory of evolution. Dr. Carl Werner reviewed thousands of fossils from the dinosaur era, and compared them to the animals and plants of today with the view that while some animals (like dinosaurs and flying reptiles) have gone extinct, others have remained substantially the same for thousands of years. In attempting to come up with an experiment to test evolution, he decided that if evolution predicted animals and plants changed dramatically over time, he would take the opposite approach; that if evolution was not true, then animals and plants would NOT change significantly over time and he would find fossils of modern species in the "older" layers. Arranged by classification, chapters cover evidences for and against evolution, snails, fish, arthropods, mammals, and more. Filled with over 700 photographs of fossils and their modern companions! 273 indexed pages, hardcover.
