Eureka!

My contribution to the Sb-wide Zombie Day will soon be posted, but if you need something to sink your teeth into before then, check out today's new issue of the Times of London science magazine Eureka (included inside the Times, for UK readers). Inside you will find two stories by me - one on paleobiology in the 21st century and the other on our changing view of tyrannosaurs - and you can access them online behind a free registration wall. It was a wonderful opportunity to write for Eureka, and I am indebted to editors Mark Henderson and Antonia Senior for their support and the freedom to really run with these stories. It was a pleasure to work with them, and I hope to do so again in the not-too-distant future.

Anyway, I hope you like the stories, and, if you do, be sure to check out my forthcoming book on paleontology and evolution, Written in Stone (pardon the shameless plug).

Some times i wonder if the geological column isn't the best evidence against long period evolution? Was there no weather for millions of years? why does the column go world wide? why doesn't the vast majority of it show erosion? The majority of the erosion to it is very very recent. look at all those layers and there are no stream beds no washouts from 100 year rainstorms, no windstorms? As i drove across Utah last summer all that uniformity of layers for 100s of miles just begs for an answer?

I agree with Chris "Some times i wonder if the geological column isn't the best evidence against long period evolution?
