Polystrate fossils prove the flood

polystrate-fossilThere are places where tree trunks have become fossilized while extending through several layers of strata.  They are called polystrate fossils.  If these layers were deposited by sedimentation over millions of years, as evolution teaches, then the wood should have deteriorated long before the next layer was formed.  Instead, these fossils indicate rapid formation of several layers of sediment “trapping” the trunk within them.  There was even a case of a whale carcass supposedly going through several layers of the alleged “geologic column.”  It was later shown not to involve multiple layers, but still it was buried in diatomic sediment before it could rot. What could have laid down enough sediment to bury an 80-foot whale before it decomposed?  A global, catastrophic flood could do that.

  1. Warren had a video on Mt. St. Helens that talked about how the tree trunks wiped out in the blast settled in this same fashion. I’ll admit, the video itself wasn’t the most fascinating thing ever, but the information was incredible! The scientists examining the aftermath of the eruption said that if they hadn’t known better, they would have believed what they were seeing was the result of millenia of sedimentation.

  2. Yes, I remember the video. The tree trunks have begun to settle at the bottom of Spirit Lake upright because of the heavier root ball. Divers say it looks like an underwater forest.

  3. This is one of my favorite truths that defies evolution. Great post brother.

  4. Those reference articles at the bottom have a ton more information which is worth reading. I just summed it up quickly.
