Living Fossils
Living Fossils, New Leaf Press 2011, 53 min., $20.

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 and the big bang theory. The classmate bet Werner that he could not prove the theory of evolution, setting the young doctor on a quest that would last more than three decades.

After reading hundreds of books on evolution over 20 years, 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 living today fossilized right alongside the dinosaurs. Interestingly, even though the fossils look remarkably similar, the plants and animals found in dinosaur rock layers were assigned entirely different genus and species names from their modern counterparts.

During the time of Werner's research, none of the 60 museums he visited chose to display the nearly 100 complete mammal fossil skeletons found in dinosaur layers. These fossils are important because they undermine evolutionists' claim that that only a few very small mammals were living at the time of the dinosaurs. Museums also leave out modern varieties of common plants and animals in dinosaur diorama displays, boosting evolutionary theory by giving the false impression that animal and plant life has changed more than it really has.

The Living Fossils DVD does what most museums don't — it displays dinosaur-era plant and animal fossils side-by-side with the closest 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.

Watch the DVD and decide for yourself whether the significant changes posited by evolution have actually occurred. To order a copy of Living Fossils or other books and videos in the Evolution: The Grand Experiment series, call 1-800-771-2147 or visit www.TheGrandExperiment.com.
