The clip finding hand remains of creature from Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
"In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. "
"And the earth was without form, and void. "
This is the planet Earth, newly born,
and cooling rapidly from a temperature of 6,000 degrees to a few hundred
in less than five billion years.
The heat rises, meets the atmosphere, the clouds form,
and rain pours down upon the hardening surface for countless centuries.
The restless seas rise, find boundaries, are contained.
Now, in their warm depths, the miracle of life begins.
In infinite variety, living things appear, and change, and reach the land,
leaving a record of their coming, of their struggle to survive,
and of their eventual end.
The record of life is written on the land,
where, 15 million years later, in the upper reaches of the Amazon,
man is still trying to read it.

I don't know, Luis. I have never seen anything like this before.
Yes. I think it is. Very important.
We will take one more picture. Then we will dig it out.
