8 Evidences the Rock Layers and Fossils Were Formed By Noah's Flood

1. The Fossil Arrangement

If you factor in habitat, body density, and the ability to survive, the fossils would line up like the geologic column chart. Just look at a chart and think about where their natural habitat is. Trilobites, then fish, then life near the water, etc.

If the Cretaceous Period represents life on earth 130 million years ago, why wouldn't that include all life? In each time period, every life form that lived on earth during that period should be represented included fish and marine life.

If the Jurassic Period represents life on earth 180 million years ago, why no fish and marine life? If the Tertiary Period was life on earth 65 million years ago, why no fish and marine life?

If those layers were laid down by a flood, we would expect fish and marine life to be down near the bottom three layers only. That is what we find.

2. How Fossils Form

A life form dies and becomes buried before its body completely decays. Water seeps down through the layers of sediment and carries dissolved mineral deposits with it. The water seeps into the pores of the life form and the mineral deposits begin to harden. As the life form's body decays, the form of it is preserved by the hardened mineral deposits. Also, some hard parts such as teeth may survive.

If the fossil record is a result of a great flood, fossil evidence to try to prove evolution is meaningless.

3. Vast Fossil Graveyards

Fossil graveyards such as these found all over the world are evidence of massive catastrophic events. Was it many catastrophes, or one world-wide flood?

4. The Actual Geologic Column

1. Two-thirds of Earth’s land surface has only 5 or fewer of the 12 geologic periods in place?

2. 80-85 % of Earth’s land surface does not have even 3 geologic periods appearing in “correct” consecutive order.

3. The only place in the world you will find all twelve layers in that order is in the textbooks!

4. There are many unconformities in the actual fossil record and the geologic column, such as missing layers, reversed layers, fossils and artifacts in the wrong layers, etc.

“For more than a hundred years the geologists of all countries have been cooperating in this endeavor and the total thickness of the stratified rocks now recognized would exceed 500,000 feet (95 miles) if all the beds were directly superposed.”

C. O. Dunbar, Historical Geology, 2nd Edition, pgs. 9-10

5. Missing or Reversed Layers


Lewis Overthrust

In Montana, "Pre-Cambrian" rocks lie on top of "Cretaceous" rocks that are supposed to be 500 million years younger. This contradiction is explained by a thrust in which a piece of land 350 miles wide and six miles thick (about 10,000 square miles in area) picked itself up and slid 40 miles on top of the "Cretaceous" strata.

Franklin Overthrust

In Texas, rocks 450 million years old lie on top of rocks 130 million years old.

Crazy Cat Canyon

At a location known as West Crazy Cat Canyon near El Paso, Texas, scientists found massive Ordovician limestones on top of Cretaceous strata.

The Grand Canyon

There is a gap between two layers of strata where several geological "ages" are missing, but in one place has interbedded layers of alternating Mississippian and Cambrian strata.

6. Human Artifacts Out of Place

These are artifacts that were found in lower layers in rock strata which supposedly existed millions of years before humans were said to have evolved.

"If a single, well verified mammal skull were to turn up in 500 million year old rocks, our whole modern theory of evolution would be utterly destroyed."

Over 500 metal spheres were found in South Africa in a Precambrian mineral deposit that had been dated at 2.8 billion years old.

7. Polystrate Fossils

Sometimes tree fossils are found running up through several rock layers representing hundreds of millions of years. There is no sign of aging or decay in the trees. Sometimes the trees are found upside down with the roots on the top. Did the trees stand upside down for hundreds of millions of years, and not grow old, while the rock layers slowly formed around them? Or were they uprooted and buried that way in a great flood?

8. Fossilized Clams

The most common fossils in the world are clam fossils. There are trillions of them. They all have one thing in common: they are petrified closed. That requires sudden, deep, burial. When a clam dies, the shells start to open up very quickly. If you are walking along the beach and find one closed, you usually say: "Hey, here's one still alive." That requires sudden, deep burial.

Fossilized clam beds all over the world.

All petrified closed.

One final thought:

Did you know that roadkill does not turn into a fossil on a regular basis? That requires sudden, deep, burial.
