 Life Forms just before end of Ice Age and after Seven Days of Genesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
They present a mystery to science because DNA analysis has shown that they are not genetically related to any modern humans.
Before dismissing this scenario as science fiction or Creationist pseudo science, let's put this time in the Earth's geologic history into perspective in relation to a remarkable coincidence of historical findings which date to the same period of time near the end of the last Ice Age, the Pleistocene/Holocene boundary:
This order (plants before sunshine) disallows the notions that the six "days" are long periods of time or that the Genesis account roughly parallels the evolutionary record.

 Ground and Sky review - Present - A Great Inhumane Adventure
Present's dark and imposing music, especially their earlier recordings, seems rather dry on record — I actually said of Triskaidekaphobie, "though the mood is certainly very dark, it's not very mean." But in a live setting, things get a lot nastier: like watching your mild-mannered neighbor turn into a vicious serial killer.
Present's music can be likened to a more aggressively rock-influenced Univers Zero, though this lineup is fairly stripped-down, with repetitive themes hammered out on piano, bass and drums over which the dual guitars of the Trigaux father-son duo weave rhythmic patterns or scream through tortuous solos.
Present give themselves a huge hurdle in the prominence of their vocals, but there is good news: they clear it with room to spare.

 JUDGING BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
At present, ultrasound, CT (computer tomographic), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans are not practical to create the digital images for surgeons to display "before" and "after" liposuction results.
Before your liposuction is performed, it may be wise for you to take pictures of yourself (timer delay, mirror, or another photographer) for your own records so that you can determine whether any ripples or bumps present following the liposuction were present before the procedure.
Also, once the doctor marks the areas to be treated on the patient (before the liposuction), it may also be wise for the doctor to repeat the photographs to show the areas to be treated.

 The Participatory Present
When you try to settle into the present moment, sometimes you find that there are sticks, rocks, and thorns there.
You’ve got to go through all of the stages of learning how to make the present a more positive experience—through the way you breathe, the way you focus on the breath, the way you deal with the various states that come up in the mind, either positive or negative.
You’ve got to learn how to be a better manager of the present moment before you can develop the even more refined skills of learning how to take all of this participation apart.

 Dinosaur National Monument Homepage
Around 160 million years before present, a mountain range extended north-south along what is today the western border of Utah.
While the southern half of the state was a terrestrial environment, an arm of the ancestral Pacific Ocean had advanced from the north, inundating Wyoming and parts of adjoining states including the Uintah Basin, and deposited sand, shale and lime mud that was later transformed into the Stump Formation.
The mud embankments that formed the sides of the river valleys kept the rivers confined to straight or moderately sinuous courses running from the Elko Highlands to the west and the Mogollon Highlands to the southwest.

 Fr. Hardon Archives - What Is Prayer Before the Blessed Sacrament?
Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is prayer offered to Jesus Christ, present in the Holy Eucharist, while the person praying is physically present in the Church or Chapel; in other words, Christ’s physical presence is met by our physical presence.
However, even as we emphasize the physical presence in explaining the word before, this word before is not merely a bodily proximity, it is also and, with emphasis, a spiritual before; as I like to put it, it is not only proximity but intimacy.
For example, John’s Gospel, just before the resuscitation of her brother Lazarus, Martha had been engaged in conversation with Jesus, mildly but nevertheless in effect reprimanding the Savior; “Lord, why didn’t you come sooner?” I like to quote the expression: “by this time he stinketh”.
