"1. The immense pressure crushes such things, especially anything resembling a void. They may or may not be there --- we have no idea (you'd just have a crack, at best)."

This is a red herring for sure. I have numerous well defined plant fossils in my own collection that are not crushed in any way. The pressure came long after the beds had cooled, and the calcium carbonate had crystallized. This can be as little as a few days. The sheer amount of plant fossils in museums alone destroyes this argument.

"2. While certainly not commonly found, who says they are rare? The chances of coming into contact with one with a core sample (and recogonizing it for what it is) is slim and none. A bit would just give you dust --- lucky if you get micro fossils."

More meaningless diversion. Core samples are such a small poetion of the visible evidence that they aren't worth even considering. The real picture is seen on large earth moving jobs. You will not find many evolution believers on an earth job; the big picture is almost like bringing Genesis back to life at your own feet.

A plant fossil is not a void.

I shall now go back to successfully drilling for oil based on the science you reject.
