World's oldest microfossils?

Others are skeptical.

It amazes me how soon life started on Earth - just a few hundred million years. That bodes well for other life in the universe.

On another thread, we mentioned a report several years old of the fossil worms in the iron deposits of Minnesota/Michigan. These Canadians may be older.
