The typical evolutionary story goes like this: fossils are formed slowly when creatures die and are slowly buried. That’s probably what you learned in school. But that doesn’t match what we observe!
Here’s one example. Last year, scientists announced the discovery of a microraptor with a lizard in its belly. Now, a microraptor is just an extinct variety of bird. And it ate lizards the same way some birds do today—head-first and whole!
But this discovery points to rapid burial. This bird didn’t finish digesting its lunch before it was catastrophically buried.
Fossils didn’t form over long ages. They formed quickly as creatures were buried during Noah’s flood.
