Cores are recovered by drilling with hand augers (for shallow holes) or powered drills; the deepest cores recovered reach depths of over two miles, and can contain ice up to 800,000 years old.
Both the physical properties of the ice itself and material trapped in the ice can be used to reconstruct information about climate over the age range of the core.
A message from the author Dear Reader, This Bible study is the first in a series designed to teach you the basics of the New Testament.
It is our prayer that it will accomplish its purpose.
This booklet contains the elements of that examination (it will take a much larger book to cover the subject with any degree of completeness).
To date, there has been nothing found to truthfully purport as a transitional specie to man, including Lucy, since 1470 was as old and probably older.
The preceding argument may give the impression that the Christianity and science are not or cannot be in conflict (either because they deal with different subjects, or because interpretation adapts to harmonize with science).
It is undeniable, however, that a strictly literal and inflexible reading of the Bible deeply contradicts science, and it is simply not possible to reconcile these opposing points of view. Adam and Eve Scientists, supported by enormous amounts of evidence (including transitions in the fossil record, DNA similarities between species, experimentally induced evolution in laboratories, observed evolution of bacteria, and empirically validated prediction based in theory) argue that all life on earth evolved from microorganisms.
But it does contain the elements which prove that the Bible is the word of God, and I trust you will find it interesting and challenging.
The conclusions reached in this study are as follows: The major point in this study is that the Old Testament is a blueprint and the New Testament is the construction process of a spiritual building, carefully overseen by a Divine Architect.
