The Rhamphorhynchus glided silently over the still waters. He had spotted something earlier from his high circle and had dropped lower to get a grab at it. He quickly maneuvered into place and dove his beak into the water right as the prey came close enough.

The weather had been strange today and the Rhamphorhynchus knew something was wrong, but, for right now, he is hungry at that is the focus of his task. Suddenly a torrent of rain cascades from the sky and pelts the poor pterosaur. Not knowing what to do, the confused pterosaur turns and heads for land.

Unfortunately, the pterosaur did not see the predator lurking in the now boisterous waters and when it jumped at him he instantly plunged into the ocean. But, as they hit the water, they rose on a gigantic wave miles high and plummeted to the soft earth that the rain had made muddy.

This fossil shows that these three creatures were buried rapidly and suddenly.

The pterosaur, his meal and predator were stuck in the mud. They were instantly covered by another wave of water that molded them into a mud cast. And there they remained until we found them.

The above story comes from what might have happened to an unfortunate pterosaur and two fish. The poor Rhamphorhynchus was found with a fish in its throat and the Aspidorhynchus that seemed to have caught it right before it became fossilized as you can see by the picture.

According to evolutionists, animals were buried slowly of many years due to uniformitarianism. This process is a form of very slow accumulation of dirt and compression that covers the animals and eventually fossilizes them.

However, the evolutionist finds problems with fossils such as these because the scales are largely still connected to Aspidorhynchus and the fish in the pterosaur’s throat. This fossil suggests a rapid burial while at least Aspidorhynchus was alive. I come to that conclusion because we know the pterosaur couldn’t have lifted him (Aspidorhynchus) to land and then died there because the burial would not have happened for a very long time and the creatures would have rotted away.

On the other hand, it couldn’t have happened while the Aspidorhynchus was dead because it would have easily grabbed the pterosaur and pulled it down into the waters. It would then dine. Something obviously interrupted the Aspidorhynchus‘ meal and it ended up killing him.

So, either this trio were buried by some kind of turbulence (very possibly the flood) under the water or they were caught in some kind of wave and sent into the earth where they were buried rapidly; most definitely the flood described in Genesis 6-8!
