The Silurian is a geological period believed by secular paleontologists to be between 443 and 417 million years ago.[1] The fossil record shows that water-based life forms during the Silurian period included coral reefs, jawless fish, and freshwater fish. Land-based life included spiders and centipedes.[2] Vascular plants first appear in the fossil record during the Silurian period. [3]

Young earth creationist scientists state that there are numerous lines of evidence pointing to a young Earth and that the old Earth paradigm is errant and has many anomalies. (For details, see Geologic system and Young Earth Creationism.)
