Creation Devotional April 14 - Paleontology

Daily Devotional – April 14

Paleontology

 

When living creatures look exactly like their fossil counterparts, they have been called “living fossils.” There are actually thousands of examples of fossils (many believed by evolutionists to be hundreds of millions of years old) that are identical to modern counterparts. For example:

  • Bacteria fossils are found identical to bacteria today. This means that some bacteria stayed the same while other bacteria mutated and turned into human beings?
  • Sponge fossils have been found identical to sponges today. So, some sponges stayed sponges while others turned into other complex sea life such as whales?
  • Starfish fossils are identical to starfish today. So, some starfish stayed starfish while other starfish turned into sharks, tuna, and octopuses?

 

The list goes on and on. The only reason these fossils exist is because they were buried during Noah’s Flood. The similar creatures alive today are not “living fossils”; they are just the same kind of creatures that survived the Flood.

 

Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

~ Psalm 145:16

Soft tissue found in dinosaur bones has been found in over a dozen documented examples. Laboratory studies indicate that soft tissue decays within about 1 YEAR, and it is known that even the most stable biological proteins would break down within 30,000 YEARS. So how do evolutionists explain soft tissue within fossilized bones - yet still hang on to their belief that these bones are over 65 million years old?

 

According to research results from evolutionist, Dr. Mary Schweitzer (the discoverer of the original soft tissue found in a T-rex fossil reported in a 2005 paper), iron from our blood can bond to tissue immediately after death and decrease the decay rate of biological tissue by orders of magnitude. Dr. Schweitzer used TOTALLY unrealistic conditions in her experiments.

 

Dr. Mark Armitage is a creationist who was fired from the University of California in 2013 after publishing the implications of his discovery of soft tissue in a Triceratops horn (found in the Hell Creek formation in Montana). He makes the following observations about Dr. Schweitzer’s latest paper, “There is no way the iron could have preserved the tissues (blood vessels) which Schweitzer is talking about because blood clots within 20 minutes [locking up any available iron]…iron could not have preserved the soft BONE sheets I found because they are in impermeable bone and they never come in contact with the blood. PLUS Schweitzer used an ANTICOAGULANT in her experiment and separated all the other blood products in order to isolate and highly concentrate the iron. She also kept it sterile (i.e., no fungi, microbes, plants, water, ice) which is way different from [any natural conditions]...”

 

In other words, evolutionists start with the assumption that the huge time periods are true and then manipulate experiments to get the results they desire - even though such conditions or experiments in no way reflects reality. They then present the findings as proof that the huge time periods are true. This type of research is poor science. We need to do good science and go wherever the facts lead us. Soft tissue in dinosaurs is puzzling for evolutionists but not for Christians. Finding many examples of soft dinosaur tissue means they died in the recent past.

In Peru, there is a 370 acre deposit containing at least 346 wonderfully preserved fossil whales. A whale graveyard! These bones are buried in a sedimentary rock called diatomite. Diatomite is made from theremains of diatoms - or single-celled algae. Today when diatoms die, their microscopic glass-like skeletons accumulate on the ocean bottom. It takes about 400 million skeletons to make one gram of diatomite. An inch of diatom skeletons on the ocean bottom would currently take about 1,000 years to accumulate. These whales are buried in 260 feet of fossilized diatoms.

 

That means--if the evolutionary timeframe of the earth is correct--it would have taken millions of years for these whales to be covered. If it took millions of years to cover these bones, there is no possibility that they would exist! Scavengers and bacteria would have decayed these whale bones long before they could have been covered, yet we find them well-preserved and intact - with no evidence of decay. Along with these 346 whale fossils, fossils of porpoises, turtles, seals, ground sloths, and penguins are also found. For these dead creatures to avoid decay, they had to have been buried rapidly, deeply, and catastrophically. The biblical model of a recent catastrophic Flood of Noah’s day would fit such evidence far better than the millions of years of slow sediment accumulation. This whale graveyard shouts that the Flood of Noah’s day was a real event!

 

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

All over the world, we find dinosaur prints captured in mud or shale, which subsequently turned to rock. These footprints are commonly found on top of coal seams, as seen in the College of Eastern Utah’s Prehistoric Museum at Price, Utah. In fact such dinosaur footprint fossils are so common that people in this area use them as door stops! But how did all of these footprints survive the worldwide Flood? Here is one possible scenario.

 

The worldwide Flood literally pulverized the world that existed before the Flood. The coal seams of the world (which formed during Noah’s Flood) required almost ten times more vegetation on the planet before the Flood than we find alive today. This pre-Flood vegetation must have floated around for months, as wave after wave sorted and dropped sediment in underwater valleys thousands of feet deep below.

 

During the Flood, many land animals would have sought to survive by clinging onto these huge floating islands of vegetation. Much of this vegetation would have been beached at some point during the yearlong Flood as water levels fluctuated from place to place. Between the beaching of these mats and subsequent covering with more layers of water and sediment, dinosaurs could have made their footprints, followed by a subsequent drowning and burial of their bones. The “age of the dinosaurs” is taught to have extended from 250 million years ago to 65 million years ago, but in reality we are just seeing bones buried at different levels during an extremely complex worldwide Flood about 4400 years ago.

 

Dinosaurs buried early in the Flood are misinterpreted as having existed over 200 million years ago whereas those destroyed and buried later in the Flood (after leaving their footprints on the newly laid and exposed sediment layers) are misinterpreted as having lived less than 100 million years ago. Because evolutionists leave the world-restructuring Flood out of their thinking, they draw incorrect conclusions about the rocks, fossils, and the age of the dinosaurs. The existence of dinosaur footprints on the top of coal seams points to a catastrophic event such as the Flood.

 

Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.

~ 2 Peter 3:6

Most Christians are not aware that there is much evidence supporting the belief that dinosaurs lived only thousands of years ago - alongside of mankind. Here is a brief list:

  1. The archaeological evidence: For example, the engravings in brass around Bishop Bell’s tomb at Carlisle Cathedral in the north of England dated 1491 show two intertwined long-necked dinosaurs. Worldwide, there are many dinosaurs depicted in ancient sculptures, paintings, and carvings. The variety and frequency of such evidence supports the reality that mankind has lived with these creatures.
  2. Soft tissue has been found inside of multiple dinosaur bones, which means they must have been buried recently, not millions of years ago.
  3. DNA has been found in dinosaur bone cells, which means they must be relatively young.
  4. Carbon-14 has been found in dinosaur bone. C-14 is used to date organic matter (not rocks), and it has a short 5,730 year half-life. After about 100,000 years, there should be no detectable C-14 left. Yet, C-14 levels hundreds of times above the equipment detection limit has been found.
  5. Before the word “dinosaur” was invented, creatures fitting the description of dinosaurs were mentioned in the Bible - the Behemoth of Job 40:15-41 and the Leviathan of Job 41.

 

Dinosaurs have been the “poster child” used to promote the belief in evolution for decades. With these findings, dinosaurs can now be missionaries of biblical truth. Everyone loves dinosaurs. Let’s show people how they fit a recent biblical creation viewpoint far better than a millions-of-years evolutionary perspective.

 

Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook…. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

~ Job 41:1, 19-21

Wisconsin is home to a very important fossil find – the jellyfish. So what’s the big deal about a fossil jellyfish?

 

In Central Wisconsin, near the town of Mosinee, there is a rock quarry. But this is no ordinary quarry; it contains many thousands of fossilized jellyfish. Why are they there? In the oceans, jellyfish are squishy blobs of clear gel. How could squishy jellyfish fossilize? Generally, hard substances become fossils – not soft substances. Also, if you have ever been to the beach, you have probably noticed seagulls eating things washed up on shore, maybe even a jellyfish. When animals wash up on shore, there are predators around to eat them – they simply do not lie on the shore waiting to be fossilized. Furthermore, when a jellyfish washes up on shore, it pumps its bell, trying to get back to the water. This will leave behind little rings in the sand. In this rock quarry, no evidence exists of fossilized rings around these jellyfish. A jellyfish is 96% water and would dry out and shrink if exposed to air. There is no fossil evidence that these jellyfish have shrunk.

 

Moreover, these jellyfish were not found in just one layer but were found buried in seven layers of the quarry over a thickness of 12 feet. So, what does all this evidence tell us? These jellyfish had to have been covered and fossilized quickly – and not just once – but repeatedly – to form the many layers. What event in history would have fast, quick coverage with mineral-filled sediment and no oxygen (the recipe for making fossils), so the creatures could be fossilized? The Flood of Noah!

 

And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die.

~ Genesis 6:17

News flash: Fossilized squid ink used in modern ink pen! Recently in Wiltshire, UK, a fossilized ink sac was removed from a squid fossil. The dried ink was ground up, mixed with an ammonia solution, and used to draw a picture of the extinct squid with its Latin name written underneath. How could a soft and sloppy ink sac fossilize? How could it still be black? Evolutionary dating puts it at 150 million years old. No protein structure could survive that long!

 

Obviously, this squid was not slowly covered with sediment over millions of years; it had to be covered recently, rapidly, and deeply in order to preserve such a find. The worldwide Flood of Noah’s time (about 4400 years ago) is a far better explanation for the preservation of this fossil squid ink.

 

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
