The achievements of modern paleontology

In these verses, unbelievers have asked how will Allah resurrect them after death when they turn into bones and dust?

Allah commands His prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi WA sallam, to tell them that even if they are transformed after death into stones or iron It to give them life.

In these verses of the Quran deals with the transformation of the bodies of the dead into stones or iron, and the possibility of such conversion is scientifically proven. This scientific fact was the basis for complex studies in paleontology (the science that examines prehistoric forms of life on earth). Thus, the Quran precedes modern science, pointing to the existence of fossils, which become the skeletons of people and animals.

The remains of animals and other organisms from the distant past, usually found in rocks and their age can make millionire.

The observations that certain fossils can be associated with certain rock formations were made by geologists in the nineteenth century. The development of technology of radiometric age analyses of rocks in the beginning of XX-th century allowed geologists to determine absolute age of various rock types and, consequently, the age of the fossils.

Fossils are the only sources for the study of prehistoric life forms on Earth. People far from paleontology called the dinosaur “bones”, but in reality, it is not bone. Organic materials may not be in the same condition for millions of years. That’s why the only remains suitable for studying are turned into stone parts of skeletons.

Prehistoric sites or settlements on the territory of Astana have not yet been found, although the stay of ancient people here and in surrounding areas is beyond doubt. In the spring of 1930 when planting trees in the school yard of the second stage, students dug up a clay pot with ornaments typical of the Andronovo culture and two of the tip of the arrows – one pink, the other grey stone.
