Fact of the Day: Ancient Fossils

Fossils have been around the Earth through many points of human history. Even Greek philosophers believed finding such fossils was evidence dry land was once covered long-term by an ocean at one point in history. Early Christian writers mostly rejected this belief.

Interesting that early Christians rejected this idea since the Old Testament describes a huge flood that covered all the land with water.
