Very old fossils


This is interesting to me because I'm trying to think of a topic for my next old folks talk, and I was settling on fossils and the origin of life.  Apparently these guys are having a massive hissy-fit on whose fossil is older!  But we know that something turned the atmosphere from methane to oxygen billions of years ago.

Can you imagine the Gorites in those days?  "This plant pollution is turning our lovely methane into oxygen!  Soon we stinky anaerobes will be ex-stink!"
