This week's podcast will be a discussion and criticism of the claims made within Richard Milton's book Shattering the Myths of Darwinism"
. The claims covered in this week's episode deal with abiogenesis, the geologic column, and polystrate fossils.Shattering the Myths of Darwinism Part 1
EDIT: I had made the podcast before I received a reply about the Geologic Column from the USGS. Today I received a response which confirmed what I had said in the podcast: the complete geologic column depends on the presence of the layers, and NOT the thickness of the sediment because the thickness will be different in places with different sedimentation rates.Richard Milton's WebsitePolystrate FossilsResponse by Talk.originsInformation about the Joggins "Fossil Forest" Formation
