Our southern neighbors have chosen today as National Fossil Day, part of Earth Sciences Week, established by the American Geological Institute to “…help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. While Canada is well known for its fossil sites, (and its fossilized Conservative government) we don’t seem to take part in the celebration. Allow me to offer my best wishes to all those south of the border who are paying tribute to the earth by honoring fossils:
(Shell fossil photographed high in a mountain pass above a glacier in Jasper National Park.
Deposited there by the mighty hand of God when he caused a world wide flood to destroy all people who sinned more than Noah by the massive forces of plate tectonics that continue to shape the earth.)
