Fast-Formed Fossils

This is Ken Ham, author of the new book on raising a godly family, Will They Stand?


When a jellyfish washes up on a beach, it dissolves within a few hours. Unless you saw it right away, you wouldn’t even know it was ever there. Now, think about this. In the fossil record, we find examples of jellyfish.

Now, how could that happen? Well, the creature had to be buried very quickly before it had a chance to decay. And that’s not the only example of fossils that had to have formed quickly. There are fossils of fish buried while swimming in schools . . . and reptiles fossilized giving birth.

These rapidly formed fossils are found around the globe—that’s because they were buried by a global flood just a few thousand years ago!
