Secularists believe that most of the fossil record, which spreads over the majority of the earth’s surface, was laid down over hundreds of millions of years—long before man appeared on the earth. The Bible clearly shows that thorns, disease, and carnivory originated after Adam’s sin.
The fossil record is still believed to be “exhibit A” for evolution. Most geologists insist the sedimentary rock layers were deposited gradually over vast eons of time. In reality, it can only be dogmatically asserted that the fossil record is the record of the order in which animals and plants were buried and fossilized.
It is beyond dispute among geologists that on every continent we find fossils of sea creatures in rock layers which today are high above sea level. There is only one possible explanation for this phenomenon—the ocean waters at some time in the past flooded over the continents.
Most evolutionists now recognize the fossil record as primarily a record of catastrophes, both local and global—quite similar to creationists’ views chalking most of the fossil record up to the work of the global Flood.
Recently, scientists announced the discovery of a new species of lizard inside the stomach of a microraptor, what they call a type of “gliding dinosaur.”
After examining a fossil left in a storage box, scientists made a surprising discovery—this fossilized bird was preserved with her unlaid egg still inside her.
Fossils are often found where they are not expected, and these finds cause evolutionists to frequently revise their timelines.
How much do we really know about all those human and ape fossils displayed in museums and textbooks? The dating methods aren’t as rock-solid as most people assume.
If there really was a global flood as described in Genesis, what would we expect to see today? Where are all the fossils of pre-flood humans?
Since the time of Darwin, evolutionists have looked to the fossil record for historical evidence of evolution.
What does the fossil evidence say, and does it really support the evolutionary view of origins—or is it perhaps more consistent with Creation?
What is the first animal at the bottom of the fossil record? Most people think it’s in the Cambrian, among the trilobites. Not so.
Geologists claim their work with the fossil Dicynodon shows that the supposed terrestrial mass extinction happened before the marine extinction.
Are autumn’s colors explained by the Yucatan impact crater?
Rich new fossil bed promises to revolutionize evolutionary understanding of the Cambrian explosion.
The fossil record is hardly “the record of life in the geologic past” that so many scientists incorrectly espouse, assuming a long prehistory for the earth and life on it.
Cambrian secrets of small beginnings
It’s a record of death, of disease, of violence—the most horrific graveyard in the world.
The fossil record doesn’t agree with Darwinian evolution: are evolutionists finally catching up to this long-time creationist claim?
Rock layers can be explained within the biblical framework of earth history.
New varieties of ancient fossils in the Cambrian rocks cast more doubt on the evolutionary model of complex species evolving slowly over time.
Where did the Cambrian Explosion come from?
Have you ever stopped to think about how much evidence of death surrounded Jesus?
They may not be much to look at, but the supposed oldest “footprints” are trampling over previous estimates of the age of animals.
Fossils of sea creatures are found in rock layers high above sea level. This is just one more evidence of the truth of God’s Word.
High in the Himalayan-Tibetan Plateau, 15,000 feet (4500m) above sea level, scientists found surprising evidence of “warmer, wetter climates.”
One of the most stunning reminders of the distance between evolutionary ideas and actual fact is the rapid appearance, in the fossil record, of advanced forms of life across the biotic kingdoms.
If the Genesis Flood, as described in Genesis 7 and 8 really occurred, what evidence would we expect to find?
Scientists have been forced to propose an evolutionary “big bang” to explain an evolutionary conundrum Charles Darwin referred to as an “abominable mystery.”
Experiments have shown that many shells disappear completely in a short period of time.
Feedback: Were fossils created ex nihilo during Creation Week?
Although of questionable validity, the 800-billion figure in no way vitiates creationist discussions about the richness of the Karoo vertebrate fauna.
It would be great if we could know the actual three-dimensional distribution of the fossils in the earth. This would go a long way towards understanding their deposition during the Flood.
One thing that most people think they 'know' about evolution is that organisms become more complex as they evolve.
We can be satisfied that there are reasonable explanations, consistent with Scripture, for the seeming lack of human fossils in Flood rocks.
In a “natural scheme” all facets of an animal’s existence are taken into account-internal and external structure, behavior, etc., before it is classified.
This series of articles will examine the evidence for the reconstruction of the history of the fishes and look at the conclusions which can be drawn from such evidence.
