Canadian backhoe operator Edgar Nernberg was digging a basement for a new house in Alberta when he stumbled upon five fish fossils. The avid collector called up a paleontologist at the University of Calgary, who said the fish had been dead for about 60 million years. The Calgary Sun asked Nernberg, who also happens to be on the board of the Big Valley Creation Science Museum, whether his scientific find made him doubt that Earth was only 6,000 years old.
He laughed, and said, “no.”
“There’s no dates stamped on these things,” he explained.
