Biodeposits are geological formations resulting from the interaction of life with Earth’s surface. Fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, and coal) represent some of the most popularly known biodeposits, but others such as limestone, chalk, and even some metals play an important role in human civilization. Metals can be poisonous to humanity. So the concentration of them into biodeposists prepares the environment for human life and also provides usable resources. The formation of these biodeposits often takes long time periods and abundant biological activity. This fact gives a partial response to the common objection: if humanity is so important to God, why would he have waited so long to create humanity? The partial answer is that God was preparing the environment and wanted humanity to have adequate resources to develop advanced civilization.
