Dinosaur Graveyard Is More Evidence of Noah’s Flood

Why is it that these scientists can always find dinosaur graveyards, like the recently discovered one of more than 900 acres in Alberta, Canada, and yet they cannot (or will not?) even consider that they may have been buried by Noah’s flood? Peter had it right 2,000 years ago—the scoffers are willingly ignorant (“dumb on purpose” in Greek). (II Peter 3)

The authors admit that these dinosaurs lived and died in an area that “was a balmy tropical area along a coast,” and that it often appears that “horrible tropical storms wiped out large numbers of dinosaurs, other animals and plants.” Also, it appears that, after their deaths, other animals would come to “check out the carnage and gnaw on the bones.” Yet they continue to be tied down by the illogical evolution theory they all seem obligated to bow to as they look for answers (maybe to keep grant money coming?) (see I Timothy 6:10).  Evolution theory is the biggest hindrance to scientific research that I know of. When will scientists just look at the evidence and REASON?

Try this one on for size—and logic!

Here’s my theory about this dinosaur graveyard: About 6,000 years ago, God made everything in six literal 24-hour days. The world was mostly tropical (and mostly land rather than 70 percent water as it is today) from pole to pole and was loaded with plants and animals of all kinds, including dinosaurs (see Seminars #2 and #3). Then, about 4,400 years ago, there was a worldwide flood just as described in Genesis 6—8. Everything outside the ark drowned. Huge mats of dead animals and plants drifted around on the ocean for months. As the mountains rose ( Seminar #6), the mats or dead rotting debris would tend to collect along the newly formed beach, just as debris collects along the beaches or in eddies of rivers and lakes today.

The new, rising Rocky Mountains formed a great place for debris to gather, as central Canada still had shallow seas that covered flotsam by sediments as the waters were still receding and “going and returning” for a few months (see Seminar #6).  The animal carcasses would tend to be sorted by density and body shape and buried in consecutive layers that later hardened into the rock strata we see today, and which the “willingly ignorant” claim are vastly different ages in the fictitious geologic column. Remember: fossils don’t form at all unless the animals are buried quickly after death. Maybe post-flood scavengers (or even animals that survived the first few months of the flood) gnawed on the bones? I think I will stick with the account given in God’s infallible Word rather than the silly fables taught in textbooks today.

Putting your priorities first

The same God that judged the world with a flood will come again to judge His creation and His creatures. Since you will be dead for a lo-o-o-o-o-ng time, I suggest you worry less about who throws a ball through a hoop or throws a touchdown and worry more about where you, your family, your neighbors and even your enemies will go after that day of judgment. Jesus died to provide the ONLY way to escape being condemned for your sin on judgment day.

If you have not asked Him to forgive your sins and save your soul, I suggest you drop everything and pray something like this RIGHT NOW: Dear Jesus, I have broken your laws. I have sinned. I am guilty. But, I believe You died on the cross to pay for my sins and rose from the dead three days later. I now ask You to forgive my sins and come live in my heart as my Lord and Savior. Please guide me to know and to do Your will for my life. Amen.

    It could be because it is far more likely they are caused by local events like those we see take place on a fairly regular basis than a single global event.

    It could also be due to radioisotope dating. Say what you like about rodioisotopes, they cannot be sorted hydrologically. If they could, it would be a billion dollar patent.

    Right, how illogical of them to first consider processes we see at work today when trying to determine what took place.

    As for being “tied down” and “obligated to bow”, consider this (from the CSE website, statement of Faith):
    “We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the written Word of God. The Bible is divinely inspired and inerrant throughout, …. No apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and science, can be valid if it contradicts Scripture.”

    I submit that the one who is “tied down” is the one who declares evidence invalid before even examining it.

    Kent, the reason nobody considers the theory you just posed is because it doesn’t explain most of what is observed, and it raises more questions that would then have to be explained.

    Why, if dead animals were sorted according to body density, do we not find Ichthyosaur fossils in the same strata with modern whales, or Kiwi birds next to Velocoraptors? In fact, why do we never find modern animals buried in the same strata as ancient, extinct ones?

    You say that perhaps post flood survivors, who were presumably on Noah’s arc, which landed in the middle east, gnawed on the bones of animals “buried quickly” in… Canada? That’s quite a long trek, even without the long swim in the middle.

    • CSE (for Dr. Hovind) October 8, 2010 at 8:54 am #

      @ Jay Liemowitz
      A. How do you know they have not been found together?
      B. Does not being found together prove they didn’t live together?
      C. Human bones and chicken bones are not found in the same rock strata. Therefore, humans and chickens never lived together and no reputable scientist should believe in KFC!
      D. Kiwi ( a bird) with Velocoraptors (a reptile)? Hmmmm, think about it one more time,
      E. “long trek to Canada” is only a problem if one assumes the pre-flood world was like it is today. Petrified redwood trees are found on Axel Island yaknow. And dino fossils in Antarctica. Better read a little more. Maybe even watch my seminar part 6.

    @ Jay
    You nailed it :)

    The flood is not able to explain any natural phenomenon or even the current mountain ranges etc.

  4. Frank Perry October 7, 2010 at 8:38 am #

    We have witnessed some pretty intense flooding over the last several month due to severe rain and rivers overflowing. Yet, not even a small animal such as a mouse was buried in such a way that it could become fossilized.

    A great worldwide flood is the ONLY possible scenario that could be large enough to quickly bury whales or dinosaurs. Not to mention, the fossil record is consistent across the globe.

    Jay,

    Being whales are ocean dwelling and dinosaurs are land animals, I would not expect them to be in the same layer.

  5. Jay Liemowitz October 7, 2010 at 9:37 am #

    Frank,

    Ichthyosaurs were sea dwelling reptiles. But I didn’t mean to focus only on this example; there are hundreds more.

    What we find in the fossil record is that fossils that resemble modern animals appear in rock layers that date most recently, and we find that the older the rock layer dates, the less the fossil resembles modern animals (and plants) or has a modern counterpart. Kent can try and claim that radiometric dating is not accurate, and even if were not, it would be very tough to explain why modern animal fossils do not appear in the same strata along side animals that no longer exist and why this corresponds so often with dating methods. Nor would a flood explain such a find, as a myriad of animal body types, some similar, some not so, exist today and have throughout history. The theory of evolution explains the findings perfectly.

    Kent Hovind is effectively saying: “Why won’t scientists use the evidence they find and try to make it fit with the Bible?”

    Because that’s improper science. Furthermore, I have been to the Alberta Badlands, Drumheller.This is no graveyard.

    Badlands are created by by erosion from wind and water, creating an ideal location to find the right kind of sedimentary rock needed to expose fossil beds.

    Kent, please visit the badlands and speak with an expert. Or better yet, read any geology textbook.

    It’s good to know your subject matter before you try to pass yourself off as an authority on the subject.

    this theory gives less question than the one that says “millions of years ago” and nothing else other than LARGE assumptions. besides, you have most likely not even heard about liquidation, and the effects it has on NOT sorting animals out by density… NOR would you know the fact that there is no geologic column… or at least none that was accurately given outside of a picture in a textbook.

    geno: “It could also be due to radioisotope dating.”

    oh you mean that method proven wrong a long time ago?

  8. David McCrea October 7, 2010 at 5:20 pm #

    I know the evolutionists will attack Dr. David Berlinski for his anti-evolutionary beliefs. So be it. But at least the man is honest about science, the scientific method, and scientists, and this is from a man who has the actual bona-fides to critique science AND who loudly and proudly proclaims his secularism.

    Dr. Berlinski states the following:
    Being human, scientists are by nature biased. This bias contaminates their research. They cannot tolerate criticism. They cannot tolerate dissent from the established norm. They can never say “I don’t know” when asked about their research since such a response will likely mean an end to their funding. They know full-well that to receive research $$$ requires toeing the evolutionary line or face expulsion to academic Siberia. Darwinian evolution is impossible. Nothing creating everything is impossible. To evolve from a cow to a whale (see NCSE literature) would require more than 50,000 morphological changes affecting every part and parcel of the cow down to the last cell (and drowning every cow in the process).

    I like his “novel” example. “Don Quixote” was the first novel. It was copied by monks manually for decades, monks who knew neither French nor Spanish. After so many years of copying, there were countless errors to the original text. There were so many errors in fact that “Don Quixote” had become a brand new novel, this one entitled “War and Peace.”

    I respect science but I don’t worship science. I respect and enjoy the creation but I don’t worship it. I worship Jesus Christ. Period.

    Let the flogging begin…

    Does Kent Hovind ever end a blog post without including some scare-tactic non-sense? It appears that he has to scare people into believing his “scientific conclusions”. How scientific of him.

  11. Duane October 8, 2010 at 2:18 am #

    Do you remember Hurricane Katrina that took out New Orleans a few years ago? How about the other hurricanes that happen every year? Is it that hard to believe hurricanes have always happened? You seem to think that EVERY natural disaster in the past was Noah’s flood. There’s not a SINGLE flood model that stands up to the slightest scrutiny. The cranks you quote have no credibility and are not taken the least bit seriously in the world of science. Every flood model ends up with the Earth being cooked.

  12. David McCrea October 8, 2010 at 2:28 am #

    Fossil evidence does not support evolution. Not when you’re talking about fossils indicating an animal or plant that was by all accounts viable during its lifetime. Once again evolutionists have it backwards.

    If Darwinian evolution were true, the fossil evidence would be replete with fossilized freaks, since there would have been far more evolutionary failures than successes. Where are the countless fossilized freaks?

    Don’t tell me natural selection weeded them out. To do so is further proof the genetic freaks existed and failed to fossilize.

    Fossils indicating a viable animal or plant are sending us a clear message, but we see what we want to see and mistakenly try to make the evidence fit the preconceived story.

    ************
    Geno comments:
    Proven wrong by who? When? Where is the documentation?

    If you are talking about accelerated decay, what causes it? Pressure? Temperature? Electromagnetic fields? You’ll need to produce a LOT more than just “there may have been something that caused accelerated decay?”

    I’m not saying radioisotopes are perfect. Are there “outliers”? Yes. Due to the small sample sizes, radioisotope dating is not easy to do. Radioisotope dating has been shown to produce statistically reliable results (when PROPERLY performed) in thousands of blind tests. The process is stable and there is absolutely no known factor that can significantly influence decay rates (short of a nuclear chain reaction which would leave its own evidence).

    Besides, you left out the context of my comment. Notice, I did acknowledge there are those who reject radiometric dating. Here’s what you left out:
    “Say what you like about radioisotopes, they cannot be sorted hydrologically.”

    Perhaps you have a process that explains why we find higher ratios of daughter isotopes at higher levels and lower ratios at lower levels…. but “flood geology” won’t do it.

    Now, do you have something substantive to offer?

    Or, do you think the scientific community should simply toss out a well tested process shown to be statistically reliable in thousands of blind tests over a period of 60 years just because a few people with an openly declared bias against objective evaluation of the evidence use tests KNOWN to be completely inappropriate then point to the EXPECTED erroneous results as “proof” of the method doesn’t work?

    1 Corinthians 1:18-19

    18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written:
    “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
    the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

    Duane:

    We are not saying that there aren’t any other natural disasters that happen, or have happened. We are merely saying that a Global flood is the only way for the fossils of so many different species to end up in one place. Or to turn into Oil or Coal.

    And you are assuming that All floods originate by rainfall. You are right that floods caused by rain would cook the earth to get the water levels that half. But what if the majority of water came from below? Not possible? Look at Venice. Granted it is slowly flooding year after year, but what if the underground cavern suddenly gave way? Or if the city put too much pressure on the reservoir when it gave way, you would have some nice water fountains appear in the streets of Venice for a short time until the whole city sank.

    The same thing happened during the flood. Water from immense underground chambers broke way to the surface flooding the land. The collapsed chambers created the trenches and drop offs of the oceans today. And the rising of waters from below would allow the temperature to remain at a somewhat constant rate.

    To everyone believing in creation,

    You can’t convince people of creation just like they can’t convince us of evolution. We use science to support creation and they use it to support evolution. The Word of God is precious and it was never meant for the pigs. We only need to worry about people who are genuinely interested in looking at things from a biblical perspective.

    People hide behind evolution so as to show that there is no reason to be moral and ethical. To them it is “survival of the fittest” and if you allow yourself to be taken advantage of then it is your problem.

    Our responsibility is twofold:

    1) show people an alternative,.i.e. creation; and
    2) provide evidence to the genuinely interested.

    Therefore, don’t allow satanists to discourage you.

    Why call them satanists? Because if you don’t serve God then you are serving Satan.

    There is no middle ground!!!
