but having done applied (not academic) paleontology for 30 years, I am an expert at the fossils and evolution I have seen with my own eyes. I don't have a political agenda, this is my every day job, which has practical utility in oil exploration.
Not sure of the point you're trying to make regarding uniformitarianism, the sedimentary layers from the volcano would have no fossils in them other than the things they obviously settled around. I hope you can see the difference in that specific example compared to the one I gave with thousands of deep sea cores taken. A little common sense and simple understanding of geology would go a long way here.
Believe me, I do have a more open mind than those that accept the Adam & Eve version of man's beginnings. No witch hunt, just trying to expose the sleepers to some truth to wake up to.
