[1] Another viewpoint is that of progressive creationism, i.e. the order of the fossils in the earth's layers represent created worlds that were created by God in a subsequent sequence and were made to disappear after long time intervals.

Such a preserved specimen is called a "fossil" if it is older than some minimum age, most often the arbitrary date of 10,000 years. [2] Hence, fossils range in age from the youngest at the start of the Holocene Epoch to the oldest, chemical fossils from the Archaean Eon, up to 3.48 billion years old, [3] [4] [5] or even older, 4.1 billion years old, according to a 2015 study. [6] [7] The observation that certain fossils were associated with certain rock strata led early geologists to recognize a geological timescale in the 19th century.

Usually one needs a range of chisels in size from small ones with a sharp edge of about 1 cm (quarter of an inch), to much larger and heavier chisels. Darwin’s theory has been shown to be correct since the human genome was finally deciphered. James Hutton, regarded as the Father of modern geology, developed the Theory of Uniformitarianism, the basis of modern geology and paleontology.
