While scientists are still trying to sort out the complex details about fossilization, one fact is undisputed: it can be amazingly fast. Massive catastrophes like Noah’s Flood would produce the conditions necessary to quickly bury and protect creatures so that they can fossilize.
Normally leaves shrivel up soon after they die. So why do we find so many leaves so well preserved worldwide—even flatter than they are in life? A unique combination of events, unlike anything we see today, would make this “wonder” possible.
A team examining a fossil deposit in the Canadian Rockies has determined that the fossil “bonanza” was buried by a rapid, muddy “miracle of preservation.” The researchers concluded that the deposit was created by a rapid mud slurry that covered the bodies so completely that whole bodies were petrified.
The relatively poor fossil record of octopuses, combined with these incredibly preserved specimens, repudiate the old-earth model of fossilization and provide powerful evidence for a catastrophic Flood that quickly buried these octopuses in sediments (before they could decay or be scavenged).
Exposed in various rock layers are large structures that look very much like ocean reefs preserved in stone.
Do fossils require millions of years to form? Hardly!
How can rotting fish join the origins battle on the creationist side?
Once again, scientists have discovered the “remarkably well preserved” fossilized remains of creatures that, it would seem, shouldn’t have fossilized in the first place.
When leaves die, they shrivel up and crumble. So why is the fossil record full of well-preserved, flat leaves?
A team examining a fossil deposit in the Canadian Rockies has determined that the fossil “bonanza” was buried by a rapid, muddy “miracle of preservation.”
For 24 years students in Bill Minnich’s music class memorized more than notes and scales; they learned about fossilization and paleontology.
Researchers discover an embryo fossilized while dividing.
When Vet author James Herriot wrote about life in Yorkshire last centrury, he probably had no idea that this area of England held a fascinating key to unlocking one of the myths of evolution's long-ag
This fossil graveyard is consistent with the Biblical Flood and a contradiction to the slow-and-gradual uniformitarian doctrine.
Answwering the question of whther there was enough time for a large mammoth population to form.
‘Instant petrified wood’—so ran the heading to the announcement in Popular Science, October 1992.
This is a sketch of the fossilized skull of a reptilian predator (Hypopnous squaliceps) with remains of its prey still lodged in its mouth! This remarkable preservation was found in the Permian beds.
Tourists who visit Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia are astonished at the sight of this waterwheel which has become entombed in solid rock in less than 65 years.
Countless millions of fossilized jellyfish and other ‘soft’ creatures are contained in an extensive layer of sandstone at Ediacara in South Australia.
Most fish when they die do not sink to the bottom, they float to the top.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively.
