Are fossils evidence for a global flood?
(Genesis 7:19: And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.)
If the flood was a real event then the very turbulent waters would have sent all kinds of animals and sea creatures to even the top of the very highest mountain of that time.
Since evolutionists have used fossils so wrongly for so long it is vital that we understand the true nature of the fossil. In reality animals or plants need to be buried quickly and thoroughly so they can be preserved and not just decay and be taken away by scavengers. In order for this to happen a flood or rush of sediment is the best way to fossilize something.
There have been many finds with fossils of predators (carnivore, omnivore) and consumers (herbivore) jumbled together. What could have caused the death of these rivals, so that they were all preserved ? We know that carnivores, omnivores and herbivores don’t just gather together and suddenly fossilize. 1
No! We know that a global flood would send those different creatures into a mumble jumble. Only a global flood describes this (Genesis 7:21-23)!
