Fossilization Quotes (1 quote)
It isnt easy to become a fossil. Only about one bone in a billion, it is thought, becomes fossilized. If that is so, it means that the complete fossil legacy of all the Americans alive todaythats 270 million people with 206 bones eachwill only be about 50 bones, one-quarter of a complete skeleton. Thats not to say, of course, that any of these bones will ever actually be found.
