Creation Devotional June 26 - Paleontology

Daily Devotional – June 26



Scientists recently uncovered five remarkably well preserved octopus fossils. Octopuses are soft-bodied animals with no internal skeleton, yet each of the octopus’ eight arms was fossilized with traces of muscles and rows of suckers intact. Several even had their internal gills and ink fossilized! Today, when an octopus dies, its body rapidly decomposes into a slimy blob. Within days, scavengers and bacteria reduce a dead octopus to nothing. To fossilize an octopus would require extremely unique conditions - fast coverage in sediment so thick that no oxygen could exist to support the growth of microorganisms. These special conditions would have been met in the Flood of Noah’s day.


Furthermore, these five octopuses were enclosed in limestone. Limestone is always assumed by evolutionists to take long periods of time to form. But the Flood of Noah’s time would have provided the perfect conditions for rapid limestone formation. The very nature of many fossils testifies to the Flood ofNoah’s day.


And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air;
