Evolution Controversy and Living Fossils

As a young medical student, Carl Werner was convinced the theory of evolution was true. But a fellow classmate suggested that certain biochemical formulas and laws of physics contradict evolution. The classmate bet Werner that he could not prove the theory of evolution. That set Werner on a quest that lasted three decades. After reading hundreds of books on evolution, the young Dr. Werner designed a practical experiment. The theory of evolution suggests that plants and animals have changed dramatically over time. Dr. Werner decided to examine the fossil record during the dinosaur period to see what other fossils were found in the same rock layers. If modern plants and animals were found along with dinosaur remains, it would suggest little change in life forms over time, and that evolution is wrong.

Over the next 14 years, Dr. Werner and his wife Debbie traveled to eight countries to visit 10 dinosaur dig sites and dozens of museums. To their surprise, they found examples of every major plant division and all the major animal groups we know today fossilized right alongside the dinosaurs. None of the 60 museums Dr. Werner visited displayed the mammal fossil skeletons found in dinosaur layers. These fossils are important because they undermine evolutionists claim that there were only a few very small mammals living at the time of the dinosaurs. Museums also leave out modern varieties of common plants and animals in their dinosaur diorama displays, giving the false impression that animal and plant life has changed more than it really has.

Dr. Werner produced a DVD that displays dinosaur-era plant and animal fossils side-by-side with modern species. The video also includes interviews with numerous scientists, underwater shots of Dr. Werner diving at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and footage from dinosaur dig sites in Europe and North America. You can watch Dr. Werner's DVD and decide for yourself whether significant changes have actually occurred.
