A baby mammoth was found in Siberia in 2007. It was so well preserved that the trunk , clumps of hair, and even eyelashes were intact. Sediment was packed into her trunk, mouth, and windpipe leading scientists to conclude she died by suffocation. They believe the animal perished in the thick mud of a bog or marsh. In 2004, three large mammoths and two woolly rhinos were discovered which had also been rapidly buried and died by suffocation. Seasonal melting of permafrost could produce such bogs, but these same layers of ground melt and refreeze. What would have buried these large creatures in permafrost well underneath these layers? It will not do to suggest they were simply trapped in marshy areas, because these large creatures could have pulled themselves out of shallow bogs. Back to the baby mammoth in Siberia, Alexei Tikhonov of the Russian Academy of Science notes, “When you look at [Lyuba], it’s hard to understand how she could have stayed in such good condition for nearly 40,000 years.” I couldn’t agree more! Time and time again we see evolutionists scrambling to shoehorn contradictory evidence into Darwinism with each new discovery. Yet, over and over, these fit quite neatly into a young earth model which requires no mental gymnastics to honest interpreters of the evidence. Those who believe in the biblical account of a worldwide flood are neither surprised nor perplexed by any of these discoveries. They are exactly what we would expect if everything happened just as the Bible says it did.
