What happens when the process seems out of order?
It might be self-evident to those of you who regularly join me here…and on my Rhyme and Reason Podcast. But there are many educated scientists who aren’t sure what to make of fossils when they’re found out of order. I’ll share a few examples of what I mean.
Imagine finding 86 consecutive hoofprints of horses dating back to the time of dinosaurs. And that’s just one place in Uzbekistan. There’s another place in the Grand Canyon where you can see hoofprints in rock that’s supposed to be about 100 million years older than hoofed animals. A guy, who’s a Grand Canyon expert, published pictures.
Aren’t dinosaur and human footprints together out of order?
Well, they discovered those footprints…yes, together…in Turkmenistan and Arizona. Then, oftentimes, archaeologists discover walking, swimming, and flying animal fossils together in the same rock layers. And what’s an evolutionist to think when he sees dinosaur, elephant, horse, and whale fossils right next to human tools all in the same layer of phosphate? Those were all discovered in South Carolina.
In addition to animals and humans, let’s not forget all the flowering plants found in amber and coal beds where flowering plants supposedly weren’t supposed to be for millions and millions of years. You can find that evidence all over the world. In fact, spores and pollen has been found in Cambrian rock where no plant life was supposed to have evolved yet. And pollen has been found in pre-Cambrian rock…where LIFE wasn’t supposed to have evolved yet. What?!
Everything old is new again.
Walt Brown, a brilliant scientist (and former atheist) with a Ph.D. from M.I.T. in mechanical engineering. He wrote a book, called “In The Beginning“, where you can see a lot more examples of life that appears to be out of order. But he shows how it’s not out of order when you simply go where the evidence leads. The magnificent design of our world, our galaxy, our universe simply comes from an even more magnificent Designer. Period.
I have no problem believing our planet was created in the recent past, and then at one time completely flooded with water. And it’s easy to see how the receding waters could rapidly lay down even micro layers of sediment with all kinds of dead things ending up together in the same (and different) layers.
What I DO have a problem with is how millions of kids are being spoon-fed a THEORY as though it were the indisputable truth…by the same people who will tell you there’s no such thing as Truth. Yeesh. Do you see the hypocrisy? Are you interested in learning some amazing facts about Earth and life? Get Dr. Brown’s book. In the meantime…here’s a little rhyme, from my song “Fast Forward”, to go with all these reasons. I’ll share the whole song in the Podcast this week.
In awe of all creation and how it all could be
The fairy tale illusions increase with every year
The wrinkled plans expand…exponentially
Until one day, perhaps, a duck becomes a deer
