“We should wait until the water evaporates before we continue,” said Terry. Terry was very exacting in his work. Terry and Matt were excavating the area for fossils. Terry was studying human evolution at the university. He excelled in his studies. However, it wasn’t the same as seeing things with his own eyes. He was keenly interested in finding anything that would establish the existence of an evolutionary chain.

“Don’t you believe in evolution?” Matt asked. Matt was also an exceptional student but he had less patience. He came from a small town where they grow evergreen trees and nobody thinks about going to college. Matt was the exception. However, today had not been eventful and Matt was a bit bored with the whole digging project.

“Don’t you?” replied Terry. Terry had his doubts about whether humans evolved from single cell organisms, but he didn’t want to admit it.

“That was an evasive answer,” Matt said. Matt understood the reason for Terry’s evasion because Matt didn’t have an exact answer, either. He had learned many theories in school, but some were hard to believe. Last week, one of his professors talked about the eventual collapse of the universe. Matt still wasn’t sire whether his professor was exaggerating or being truthful.

“Imagine being a caveman and having to eviscerate a dinosaur with your bare hands,” Terry said.

“That evokes memories of our last meal,” Matt said. Matt was referring to the roasted rabbits they had been eating for the last two days. From Matt’s point of view, it was not a proper meal for the most exalted organisms in the evolutionary chain. In fact, it had exacerbated his stomach ulcer. He couldn’t wait to return to civilization. “Can’t we just go home?” Matt pleaded.

“Sure we can,” replied Terry. “Eventually.”
