Evolutionary workers and some creationists too have been
ignoring or rejecting the reports of vascular plant micro -
fossils found in strata designated as “Cambrian” and “Pre -
cam brian” from many different areas of the world
One such amazing report discusses"...microscopic vegetable remains from sedimentary rocks in Russia..., Poland, Czechoslovakia, Scotland, and many other countries in Europe and Asia" (Science News 1962). The anonymous writer noted that "Tiny plant pollen grains have been found in rocks up to two billion years old" This had to reference to a scientific report delivered by Dr. Sofija N. Naumova of the Geology Institute, Academy of Science, in Moscow as he spoke to the International Conference of Palynology, at the University of Arizona, Tucson.
More than 650 species of spores and pollen... were described by the scientist. These included shreds of tissue and fragments of many algae... Remnants of primitive pine trees and seed-bearing plants were found during the study... the 32 complexes [of microfossils] can be clearly traced within eastern Europe and Siberia and, he added, can be successfully used for the correlation of the oldest sedimentary rocks on earth. (p. 281). We also found pollen and tracheids of land plants in Pre cam brian Hakatai shale at the Grand Canyon (Howe et al., 1988)
It would be valuable for science if the published proceedings of Naumova’s speeches at this conference could be located and reviewed. At tempts are currently underway to locate published accounts of Sofija N. Naumova’s discovery of pollen and other vascular plant material in the Precambrian of many different countries. Any help in this regard will be appreciated and can be sent to the address below. It is true, as some workers assert that God could have created across vast periods of time if He had so chosen. But the issue is not “how could God have worked if He had wanted to” but “how did God create?” Neither the Bible (God’s Word) nor science (human study of God’s work) demands long ages in earth's history
