It Came From La Brea

Los Angeles Tar Yields Mammoth’s Skeleton

Another creature has emerged from the famous La Brea Tar Pits. This time, it's a rather complete Mammoth:

...LOS ANGELES — The excavation for a parking garage near the La Brea tar pits here has yielded the site’s first intact mammoth skeleton as well as a trove of other bones that could double the size of the site’s already large collection of fossils from the last ice age...

I realize there are exceptions, but i was discussing this with a friend about how some Christians say these "discoveries" are all lies mention to destroy belief in God. What? Like, someone has enough money to go around creating fake bones and burying them?? Um, whatever.
