I wouldnt ask that you undo your changes and waste your work. The student will get credit for the work he does.

Why does this page use an 8th-grade school project as its source on fossilization? Why does it describe it as a typical description, when it obviously isn't? Roy —unsigned comment by Rthearle (talk • contribs)
Meaning of the word fossil
One participant on a creationist net who is working on a master's degree (or higher) in Geology, mentioned that he discovered that the base idea of the word 'fossil' is simply something old. Thus, it does not necessarily imply mineralization. This was in a discussion on dinosaur bones which had not yet become mineralized and if they could still be called fossils. His answer was that they could be fossils whether mineralized or not (if I understood correctly).
I do not have expertise in this area and don't have a way to look up an authoritative quote. Can anyone tell us if that meaning would be important to note in this article?

needs to be rewritten
This page is terribly wrong in several places. It needs to be totally written, which is what I did! Allenroyboy 14:14, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
