When you think shells, fish, and other sea creatures, you probably don’t think of Ohio. After all, it doesn’t exactly feature seaside living! And yet there are fossils of sea creatures found throughout that state, as well as in many other landlocked areas. The common evolutionary explanation was that, at some point, Ohio—the state neighboring us to the north—was covered in a shallow sea. But what if there’s a better explanation?
We find billions of fossils of sea creatures literally everywhere—from the tops of mountains to completely landlocked prairies. This phenomenon means that at one point the entire globe had to be covered with water. Evolutionists typically appeal to shallow seas or something similar at various stages throughout history. They certainly wouldn’t say that this happened all at once. But the Bible tells us otherwise.
The Bible describes a world-destroying global flood. It would’ve ripped up miles of sediment, redepositing it in layers, trapping and burying organisms in those layers. And, of course, since this was primarily a marine catastrophe, the majority of the fossil record is made up of marine creatures.
Well, you can discover some of these fossilized marine creatures yourself on a paleontological adventure with geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling and paleontologist Dr. Gabriela Haynes, September 7, 2019. Cesar Creek Lake in Warren County, Ohio, is a great place to go fossil hunting, digging up reminders of God’s watery judgment on the wicked world of that time. And you’ll learn all about flood geology and fossils from two experts in the field!
Don’t miss this fun, family-friendly event (children ages 12 and up are invited to attend) in a beautiful part of God’s creation, about 75 minutes from the Creation Museum. Space is limited, so register today to secure your spot. And while in the region, also visit the museum and the Ark Encounter to the south.
