A University of Calgary paleontologist says fish fossils found by an Alberta backhoe operator are likely 60 million years old. Edgar Nernberg was excavating a basement in March when he saw the outlines of five fish in a block of sandstone. Nernberg -- who believes in creationism -- thinks the fish were most likely to have been alive shortly before the Great Flood in the Bible, about 43-hundred years ago. But U of C's Darla Zelenitsky says she is a scientist -- and she follows science. (Nernberg sits on the board of the Big Valley Creationist Museum and says he's been promised replicas for his exhibition.)
