Preserved and Articulated Fossils Debunk Millions of Years of Evolution
The so-called geologic column is supposed to be a representation of BILLIONS of creatures that have lived on Earth in the last 100s of MILLIONS of years, and of which, such creatures were slowly buried. But, can creatures be slowly buried over MILLIONS of years, and yet, be preserved? The blunt answer on that is a resounding,”NO!” Most of the BILLIONS of fossils that are found worldwide, including those found on top of every mountain, are PRESERVED and ARTICULATED (i.e. bones still connected). This fact clearly goes against evolution being a viable answer to how fossils are formed, since well preserved fossils cannot be formed by a slow process over millions of years… not even over a few years. Even the sites that promote evolution admits, that fossilization requires a quick burial. The reason why, is because within weeks, a dead creature would be devoured by parasites and predators, and its bones scattered, before it could ever be buried and preserved. For this reason, the so-called geologic column cannot possibly represent MILLIONS of years of evolution. The so-called geologic column, which doesn’t even cover most of the Earth, is more than likely, sediment from the worldwide Flood, as described in the Book of Genesis.
The ABSENCE of intermediate/transitional fossils in the fossil record, adds to the strength of the fossil evidence that favors the Genesis Flood, which you can read about in a previous blog (i.e. Do Transitional Fossils Really Exist?). Fossilized “closed” clams, fossilized soft-bodied marine creatures, and fossilized polystrate trees are strong evidences that the creatures were quickly buried alive. Clams normally die in the “open” position, but, there are untold thousands of fossilized clams that are found in the “closed” position, worldwide, including what’s known to exist on top of every mountain. Soft-bodied marine creatures, such as jellyfish, would require a quick burial, in order to keep parasites and the weather from quickly destroying them. Evolutionists would like to make us think, that there are uprooted super trees that can slowly be buried over MILLIONS of years, without rotting away during that burial process, and then become fossilized. Such a process is scientifically impossible, for an uprooted tree would rot away within a few years. Fossilized polystrate trees (i.e. trees that go through more than one layer of strata that represents MILLIONS of years, according to evolution) are strong evidence against evolution, and were most likely caused by the worldwide Flood.
There have been many fossilized fish found, with fish half-way in their mouths, proving they were quickly buried while having their meal, as from mudslides caused by the worldwide Flood. There are many fossilized creatures found with arched backs, showing that such creatures were in stress as they were quickly buried. Fossilized birds, including the Archaeopteryx fossils, are found in such a way. There are fossilized creatures found to be pregnant, and some were so stressed, that they were giving birth as they were being buried. All of these events show a quick burial, as from mudslides caused by the worldwide Flood. Once again, such events are impossible from slow burial over MILLIONS of years.
Certainly, there will be fossilized bones that are found, that aren’t found intact with the rest of its body, and such things can be expected, since the force of a worldwide Flood would do incredible damage, but, under no circumstance, can it be scientifically proven, that fossilized creatures that are well preserved, which is the case for most fossils, can be formed by slow burial over millions of years.
“Now, one of the reasons I started taking this anti-evolutionary view, well, let’s call it non-evolutionary, was last year I had a sudden realization. For over twenty years I had thought that I was working on evolution in some way. One morning I woke up, and something had happened in the night, and it struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years, and there was not one thing I knew about it. That was quite a shock, to learn that one can be so misled for so long.”-Dr. Colin Patterson, Senior Palaeontologist; British Museaum of Natural History, London, Discussion at the American Museum of Natural History, New York City, 5 November, 1981
