“Miraculous” Rocks That Bend

Posted by Worldview Warriors On Tuesday, February 18, 2014 2 comments

Here are some basics about geology: When we view rock layers around the world, there are some things that are very simple to see. First, if a layer has fossils in it, it had to have been covered by the next layer very quickly or the animal fossilized would have been scavenged. We also do not see any signs of weathering or erosion between layers, which also confirms the layers were laid down rapidly. Fossils that travel through multiple layers of rock also show the layers were laid down rather quickly; otherwise, the fossils would have decomposed in the supposed millions of years that went by between depositions. Oftentimes we see many rock layers that are bent without cracks or breaking. Hard rock cannot be bent without fracturing. So the multiple layers were still soft when this happened. This also suggests they were laid down in a short time together. Scientists often suggest fossilization takes very long periods of time to occur. However, we often find man made artifacts embedded in rock or coal or mineralized. Laboratory experiments confirm fossilization can occur rather quickly, relatively speaking. The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD is a perfect example of this happening quickly in nature. All this confirms the Flood account in the Bible and contradicts evolutionary time scales. In some of these cases the maximum time would be hours, days or months. When you combine all of this evidence, where multiple characteristics apply to certain layers, the claim of millions of years is again positively ruled out.

There is an excellent video out about the Mt Saint Helen eruption. It shows many of the things you are talking about and more, Being so recent, the time line is well documented. The science/Bible commentary is excellent.
