The Wollemi Pine
Positive feedback 18 December 2000
This week's positive feedback is from E.M. of New South Wales, Australia. For more information on fossil dating, and living fossils, please see Fossils Q&A.
It was great to see the article on the Wollemi Pine [CEN 23(1) and CEN 19(3)], it's been a long time coming. Back in 1990 my sister and myself were sitting on the banks of Dunn Swamp, part of the Wollemi Wilderness when I got an inspiration to pray that there was something out there that God wanted to reveal that would prove creation. So my sister and I prayed and four years later the Wollemi Pine was 'discovered'. I was disappointed at first with all the media hype and the evolutionary slant put up, because I knew God wanted it to be discovered for His purposes. I've been meaning to write to you about the prayer but in God's providence the truth is always revealed. Thanks again for the article.
