81: Sedimentary Rocks
Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary rocks (also called deposited rocks) are rocks, which are derived from the decomposition, and weathering of older rocks. The sedimentary rock cover of the continents of the earth's crust is extensive, but the total of that being of sedimentary rocks is estimated to be only five percent of the total. Sedimentary rocks contain important information about the history of the earth. They contain fossils, the preserved remains of ancient plants and animals. The composition of the sediments provides us with clues as to the original rock. Differences between different layers indicate changes to the environment, which have occurred over time. Sedimentary rocks are classified into two broad groups, clastic sedimentary rocks and chemical sedimentary rocks. Clastic sedimentary rocks are formed by ... All sedimentary rocks are in general characterized by the parallel arrangement of their mineral layers or beds, which are distinguished from each other by differences in thickness, the size of the grains, or color.

Because of his skill and ever- evolving style, his music is a lasting contribution in itself. Eric Clapton made his recording debut with The Yardbirds, the British group that also featured guitar virtuosos Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. Together, they created a whole new blues/rock sound that many of the famous ‘60s and ‘70s bands copied. Clapton left The Yardbirds when he felt the band strayed too far from their blues roots towards pop music. E.C. then joined British ... stint with The Bluesbreakers, Clapton formed a new group called Cream with bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker. The trio made four highly successful albums together in the next few years.

84: Should The Harris Superquarry Go Ahead?
... SUPERQUARRY (Glasgow Herald, 20/10/94) 3 THE ISSUES SURROUNDING THE DEBATE 3.1 History 1927 A detailed geological survey identified the deposit of anorthosite. 1965 Planning permission was given in principle to quarry the rock. The remit covered a larger site than is planned today. 1966 Some small scale quarrying took place but found an on site rock crushing plant and a deep harbour were necessary for economic viability. 74-76 Outline planning permission was given for quarrying, shipping and loading facilities but this was never acted on. 1977 The Scottish Office issued ... the rest he acquired later.

85: Plan and Purpose (Creation) or Time and Chance (Evolution)?
... The geologic column, however, does not confirm that evolution occurred. There are many objections to the geologic column which prove that it is inclusive and inaccurate in supporting evolution. Nowhere in the earth’s sedimentary rock does the sequence of the geologic column occur. The layers are re-arranged, never in the same order, and even if the sequence actually did exist in the earth’s crust, the absence of transitional ... from other species. The geologic column was fictionally created to collaborate with evolutionary thinking. Also, the method that evolutionists use to date fossils (carbon-14 dating) is faulty; they use the fossil to date the rock, and the rock to date the fossil. Living organisms become fossilized through a strong force compressing them against a solid surface. Living organisms must be buried very rapidly in order to become fossilized. However, evolutionists believe that ...

Reeves Garbles, David Bowie's recording and touring guitarist, solo artist on Upstart Records, and author of The Myth of Rock speaks about several misconceived views of musicians and the music industry. In the first chapter he writes about what he calls the "misfortune of getting a record deal." The misconception here is that record deals ... are one of the songwriters, and/or touring).
