In Part 3, Paddy and Penny Pig, from Johns River piggery near the eastern seaboard Australia, are accidentally abandoned at the bottom of the Grand Canyon in the United States. The pigs are left with an extraterrestrial time machine which they soon learn to use. This allows them to have adventures in EarthÕs fascinating geological history as they ascend the Time Trail to the surface of the canyon. During their adventures in different geological Periods, our intrepid time travelers learn about life history and changing geological environments in the south western part of the United States of America from approximately 1,700 million years past to the present. As a geoscientist, I attempt to recreate plausible snapshots of the geological past. Evolving faunal and floral communities are interwoven at appropriate times. Our hosts Paddy and Penny Pig are mostly tourists who simply observe. However they do get into bother on occasions, but always manage to escape. A book of this nature will offend some readers, and especially those who reject the notion that the Earth is very old Ð approximately 4,500 million years in fact! However there is something for everybody. I personally accept that biological evolution is a fact. Nevertheless, I am not in a position to reject interventionism as an alternative suggestion for the biological ÔexplosionÕ which occurred in the Cambrian Period more than 550 million years ago. Besides, this approach leaves the door ajar for Cosmic Intelligence to peek in. Remember, we humans do not have all the answers Ð at least not yet!
