Creation Devotional September 28 - Geology

Daily Devotional – September 28



One of the many evidences supporting a worldwide Flood is the frequent finding of oval-shaped petrified trees. Why is this significant?


Almost every museum display on the formation of fossils shows the slow accumulation of sediment around organisms to form the fossils. It seems likely that petrified trees formed in this way would have turned to solid rock long before they were buried under millions of pounds of sediment (dirt). So, if evolutionary processes produced petrified trees - they would almost all be circular in cross section.


On the other hand, if petrified trees exist because enormous mats of vegetation were deeply buried during the worldwide Flood of Noah, millions of pounds of sediment would have pushed down on the trees before they became fossilized. Thus, many would have been flattened by the weight of rapidly accumulating sediment before they became petrified. In other words, because fossilization is a process that has been shown to occur quite rapidly (within decades, not millions of years), the trees could have been flattened into an oval shape before they were fossilized. This is exactly what we find in many locations.


Observational evidence supports the reality of a recent worldwide Flood upon our planet.


Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken….

~ Psalm 18:7
