Untouched For A Million Years

I just wanted to share a cool science story I ran across today. Essentially, Missourians have recently discovered a "time capsule" of sorts. It's a very, very old cave that was sealed at least 55,000 years ago. The cave was used by numerous prehistoric animals, whose remains – and poop – are remarkably well preserved. Very cool indeed.

The coolest part is evidence of a ginormous bear that stood six feet high at the shoulder, and had a bite of more than 2,000 lbs per square inch!

God had must have had a total blast throughout the various periods of creation. How fun would it be to make dinosaurs and giant bears! Though I suppose he also had to create the amoebas, which would be pretty boring.
