How to annoy an evolutionist: Creationist makes important fossil discovery in Alberta, Canada
[by Dean Smith] During the day, Edgar Nernberg is a backhoe operator in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but at night he promotes his favorite pastime — Creationism. He even helped build the Big Valley Creation Science Museum in Big Valley, Alberta and sits on the museum’s board. The museum was set up to counter Alberta’s Royal Tyrrell museum in Drumheller, that promotes evolution. Edgar even wants to have creationism included in the curriculum of Alberta schools. Contrary to evolutionary theory, Edgar believes the world is about 6,000 years old. Nernberg was excavating a basement in a northwest Calgary subdivision when a sandstone with odd markings caught his attention. It is now being heralded as one of the greatest fossil finds in Alberta in recent decades — a significant claim considering Alberta is renowned for its fossils.
