Dr. Andrew Snelling looks at evidence to confirm the recent, rapid formation of coal and oil as a result of the Biblical Flood.



The observed makeup of the world's immense coal beds does not fit the millions-of-years peat swamp model. Instead it points to rapid accumulation of plant debris through catastrophic global water deposition. Experiments demonstrate it takes as little as a few days to turn buried plant debris into coal, and produce oil from coal and organic debris. The evidence thus confirms the recent, rapid formation of coal and oil as a result of the Biblical Flood!
