it was amazing
Read in April, 2009

i feel like i've conquered something, finally finishing this book. it's like a tome of superlatives. it's like the title should be IN CAPS WITH EXCLAMATION POINTS !!! it's like if i'd had this book (and bill nye) in high school and college, i would have cared more (however, i still don't care about chemistry). if this book and my favorite book had a baby, my brain would spooge. bless you, bill bryson, for bringing it.

Kenny Bell PLEASE READ* Do you remember when he talked about stromatolites-the ancient rock structure dated from 3.5 billion years ago, made from cynobacteria-blue/green algae. He says the scientist agree that these were the first origins of life. My question is how do scientist know that the rock is the object that is 3.5 billion yrs old and not the organisms? Because the organisms could just have appeared when man first appeared.(Adam and Eve)
