Earth 100 Million Years From Now

"Earth's landmasses were not always what they are today. Continents formed as Earth's crustal plates shifted and collided over long periods of time. This video shows how today's continents are thought to have evolved over the last 600 million years, and where they'll end up in the next 100 million years. Paleogeographic Views of Earth's History provided by Ron Blakey, Professor of Geology, Northern Arizona University." 

I have looked for fossils in Pre-Cambrian strata, before life came into being. I found fossils in the Cambrian and in many other layers up until the Common Era. There are no rabbits, horses or ducks in the lower layers. They do begin to appear after the dinosaurs became extinct. There is no evidence that dinosaurs and Homo sapiens co-existed. The silly claims I read by some who believe that all creatures existed throughout all time just simply do not now of which they speak. They are either lazy, foolish, deluded, or insane observers. It would be funny, except there are those who want to replace science with creationism in public schools. 

Such nonsense can be taught in home schooling or in private schools, but do not contaminate science with mythology. 

The scientific observations offer so many more interesting things to think about, we can focus on them and have one lifetime of good times and be awe-inspired from the effort.

"...can be taught in home schooling or in private schools,...". Unfortunately, "such nonsense" IS taught there! Plus, it comes from the mouths of  notable people like Republican Representive Paul Broun (GA): "All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and big bang theory--all that is lies straight from the pit of hell." So sad.

Sad? yes! Silly? Absolutely. Tragedy so many people feel the adverse effects of such beliefs. However, I really laugh, you know the deep down o the core laugh, when the pope tells women they can't use contraceptives or have abortions. That is so immature, so childish, so irrational as to be ludicrous. He tells the men not to spill their sperm on the ground. Oh! now there is a funny sight!

Every Sperm Is Sacred Lyrics

Artist: Monty Python (Buy Monty Python CDs
Album: The Meaning Of Life

DAD:
There are Jews in the world.
There are Buddhists.
There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
There are those that follow Mohammed, but
I've never been one of them.

I'm a Roman Catholic,
And have been since before I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

You don't have to be a six-footer.
You don't have to have a great brain.
You don't have to have any clothes on. You're
A Catholic the moment Dad came,

Because

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

CHILDREN:
Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

GIRL:
Let the heathen spill theirs
On the dusty ground.
God shall make them pay for
Each sperm that can't be found.

CHILDREN:
Every sperm is wanted.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.

MUM:
Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
Spill theirs just anywhere,
But God loves those who treat their
Semen with more care.

MEN:
Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
WOMEN:
If a sperm is wasted,...
CHILDREN:
...God get quite irate.

PRIEST:
Every sperm is sacred.
BRIDE and GROOM:
Every sperm is good.
NANNIES:
Every sperm is needed...
CARDINALS:
...In your neighbourhood!

CHILDREN:
Every sperm is useful.
Every sperm is fine.
FUNERAL CORTEGE:
God needs everybody's.
MOURNER #1:
Mine!
MOURNER #2:
And mine!
CORPSE:
And mine!

NUN:
Let the Pagan spill theirs
O'er mountain, hill, and plain.
HOLY STATUES:
God shall strike them down for
Each sperm that's spilt in vain.

EVERYONE:
Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite iraaaaaate!
