Celebrating a Century of Fossil Finds In the La Brea Tar Pits 93

An anonymous reader writes "A century ago on Monday, the predecessor to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County began a two-year project to uncover the Ice Age creatures that became trapped in the La Brea Tar Pits. 'Digs over the years have unearthed bones of mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats, dire wolves and other unsuspecting Ice Age creatures that became trapped in ponds of sticky asphalt. But it's the smaller discoveries — plants, insects and rodents — in recent years that are shaping scientists' views of life in the region 11,000 to 50,000 years ago.'"

    if you take it further there's also an allstar argument that has retained it status that GOD CREATED TIME so none of it matters. but that card is to be played usually after everything else has been exhausted(since it's a super card that can't be beaten by logic... because... magic!).

    Fossils, isotopes, sediment layers--tricks of Satan, I say. His cleverness has designed many misleading things to obfuscate God's work from the faithfully weak and disbelievers to foster more lost souls at the time of their death to enter his dark kingdom of dark matter and energy.
