Evidence of Rapid Burial of Fossils.


According to uniformitarian geology the various layers of rock formed slowly but there is considerable evidence that suck layer formed rapidly, and that fossil animals were buried suddenly in a catastrophic event.

Fossil grave yards.

These fossil grave yards consist of jumbles of bones; often millions of animals; all buried together by a flood. Such grave yards would be a natural result of a global flood.

This fish; from the Green River Formation; was buried while swallowing a smaller one. This indicates that these fish were buried so rapidly that the larger one did not have time to finish eating or even to expel the smaller fish. These fish may be post flood, but it still show that they were buried rapidly.

This fish had finished swallowing the smaller and they were fossilized with the smaller one inside the big one. It shows no sign of digestion, so the two fish must have been buried so quickly before digestion could even begin.

Polystrate  trees.

From The Creation-Evolution Controversy by R.L. Wysong.

Fossil trees; such as the one above; crossing between strata proves that the strata formed rapidly. According to Uniformitarian Geology the strata around this tree should have taken millions of years to accumulate. While a dead tree may stand for decades before it rots enough to fall over, no tree will stand for millions of years as sediment builds up around it. The simple fact is that the strata could not have accumulated over millions of years. The lack of root systems shows that these trees did not grow in place. The fossil tree above goes through two coal seams.

From The Young Earth by John D. Morris

When a tree floats on water it become water logged root end first, causing the tree to float upright. As the tree becomes more water logged, it gradually sinks to the bottom; still in an upright position, where it is quickly  buried in layers of sediment. This was confirmed in Spirit Lake, when Mt. St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980.

Evolutionists like to point to the Joggins Fossil Cliffs as an example of trees that grew in place, but the ICR article Polystrate Trees and Coal Seams of Joggins Fossil Cliffs shows this claim to be wrong.
