If you’ve been around more than a couple of decades, you’ve probably seen it. The classic scene in a Western movie where One-eyed Jack, outside a saloon, yells to someone inside. “Hey Bart! I’m callin’ you out! You yellow-bellied-two-faced-lily-livered-hook-nosed-varmint. And if you ain’t out here in 15 seconds, I’m comin’ in!” Then, of course Bart gets up from the poker table, adjusts his hat, calmly walks through the bar’s swingin’ doors, and out into the street. Where One-eyed Jack shows him the index fossil he just found next to his gold mine.
Remember that scene? Yeah, it’s probably flooding back into your memory. Right?
Well, maybe it didn’t go exactly like that. But it could have.
Because index fossils were discovered back in the old west days.
That might not have been the first time anybody saw similar index fossils in similar layers of rock. But that’s when some started to believe that fossils in lower rock layers must be older than fossils above them. And that started a free-fall away from facts.
Because then came the theory of evolution. And real science and discovery has suffered, enormously, ever since. But fortunately, there are still scientists who choose to follow where evidence genuinely goes. And thankfully, one of them, Dr. Walt Brown, wrote an awesome evidence-filled book overflowing with scientific information to refute evolution.
One of those bits of information talks about the fossilization process. And Dr. Brown says those geologists from the 1800’s “did not realize that a hydrodynamic mechanism, liquefaction, helped sort organisms in that order during the flood.”
Of course, you don’t have to believe liquefaction is a “real thing.” You can go on believing in the evolution fairy tale, if that floats your boat.
But I prefer real science.
And real science is willing to look at evidence and go where it leads. Instead of manipulating evidence to go where you prefer. Evidence like a trilobiteÂ fossil squashed under the fossil of a human shoe print.
Now, if you believe the evolution fairy tale, it’s hard to explain how that could be. Because trilobites supposedly went extinct 240 million years before human beings evolved. So, how could a trilobite index fossil and human shoe fossil be in the same rock layer?
If you still believe evolution is a fact and not a fairy tale, then I’m callin’ you out.
But not for a shootout. I just wanna help you stop walkin’ around in circles. Yeah, you’re liable to believe silly things like the ages of fossils are based on the layers of rock…and the ages of the layers of rock are based on what fossils are in them.
And I don’t want you to stay dizzy while you walk around in those circles. Because dizzy people don’t make the best decisions.
For example, walking around in those circles might make you decide there is no God. And that thinking will only lead to an eternity of doubt and despair.
So, go where the evidence leads.
Truth is the cure your heart needs.
