AD5673, first off you have to realize that in all the millions of years that humans have lived, yes I believe that we have been around far longer than
science tells us we have been on Earth in our current form, there have been many rapid climate changes, and major disasters that put civilizations
back to the stone age probably several times.
One of the thigns the Vedic scriptures say is exactly this, that there were many civilizations in the past that were destroyed, and some of them by
atomic weapons. If you don't want to believe it its fine, but it is in the texts.
"The Vedic scriptures are the spiritual literature of the ancient Indian culture. A huge collection of books written in the Sanskrit language, they
include material (mundane), religious (ritualistic), and spiritual (monotheistic) knowledge. The word "Vedic" is derived from the Sanskrit word
veda, meaning knowledge or revelation. According to Vedic history, these scriptures were written down about 5000 years ago. This date is not accepted
in modern Indology, but the date is in fact not very important, because the knowledge in these scriptures existed long before it was written down.
The Veda is understood by simply accepting what the Veda says about itself. This Vedic self-understanding may be amazing or even unbelievable to the
modern reader, but the different opinions about the origin and history of the Vedic scriptures are due to a fundamental difference in world views
between the followers of the Veda and modern mundane scholars.
According to the indological world view, "Vedic scripture" doesn't even exist. Modern Indology says that the collection of books mentioned in this
article is not a consistent body of knowledge but a mere accumulation of texts from different sources. Indology claims that they were written over a
long period, starting after the hypothetical Aryan invasion into the Indian subcontinent, about 1000 to 1500 B.C., when the mixture of tribes formed a
"Vedic" culture. If we believe this scenario, then it is natural to think that the Indian scriptures are a mass of unsystematic, mythological texts.

Second, what you say about fossils tells me that you don't know what a fossil is. A fossil is the impression or remains of a plant, or animal that
existed in the past and can be found in the Earth's crust, sometimes they are found embedded in sedimentary rocks, and rocks can surely last for
millions of years.
Now i am not an archeologist, so do not take what I just said written in stone, but I think I am close enough.
