Here’s an interesting little sequel to my last post,”Fossils and the wrong key”, in which I noted that stories of dinosaurs wandering into swamps, lakes, bogs, rivers, tar pits and so on abound, because dinosaur fossils and bones are found in sediments where they had to be buried rapidly.
Evolutionists strictly enforce their “no divinity” rule and look for any other explanation than the Biblical one, which is that a world-wide flood rearranged the surface of the earth and killed almost all life.
Frank Sherwin with Institute for Creation Research recently published an article* on a fossil find in Canada, which included a nodosaur in spectacular condition.
Nodosaurs were tank-like dinosaurs, similar to ankylosaurs, covered with spiky scales. Miner Sawn Funk found one in 2011 in Alberta’s Millennium Mine, in such good condition that it looks like a statue. It even had skin remnants on its face and toe pads. How does that happen after 65+ million years?
The sedimentary layers at the mine where the nodosaur was unearthed also contain plenty of plesiosaurs. How did creatures from land and sea environments get mixed together and buried in the same sediments? According to the official story, a flood filled a riverbed and swept the dead nodosaur out to sea. It sank to the sea floor and minerals quickly penetrated its skin and armor, “ensuring that the dead nodosaur would keep its true-to-life form as eons’ worth of rock piled atop it”.
Or perhaps it got buried in the Biblical Flood, along with the plesiosaurs, all of which were swept together and buried in sediment-laden waters.
