Re: mooved from
cheers radz
How consistent is it?
ie, if we choose a random location and dig down, would the rock strata be in that sequence?
and how reliable and consistent are the ages assigned to the different life-forms found in the layers?

Re: consistent, pervasive, index fossils
thanks RAZD, thats a great rundown.
Charles Lyells book 'Principles of Geology' explains that all sedimentary rocks are deposited by extremely slow processes, such as rain washing loose sand down a mountain slope to a river. Is this theory still current today? Or has it changed?
the other thing i want to know is why geology and evolution are so closely linked? Shouldn't they be independent of each other?
