THE WORLD’S A GRAVEYARD
Flood Evidence Number Two
by Andrew A. Snelling
February 12, 2008
Fossil graveyards found in rock layers around the world are evidence of the global Flood.
If the Genesis Flood, as described in Genesis 7 and Genesis 8, really occurred, what evidence would we expect to find? The first article in this series overviewed the six main geologic evidences that testify to the Genesis Flood, while the second article discussed evidence number one (see the list below). Now let’s take a closer look at evidence number two.
After noting in Genesis 7 that all the high hills and the mountains were covered by water and all air-breathing life on the land was swept away and perished, it should be obvious what evidence we would expect to find.
Wouldn’t we expect to find rock layers all over the earth filled with billions of dead animals and plants that were buried rapidly and fossilized in sand, mud, and lime? Of course, and that’s exactly what we find. Furthermore, even though the catastrophic geologic activity of the Flood would have waned in the immediate post-Flood period, ongoing mini-catastrophes would still have produced localized fossil deposits.
Graveyards Around the World
Countless billions of plant and animal fossils are found in extensive “graveyards” where they had to be buried rapidly on a massive scale. Often the fine details of the creatures are exquisitely preserved.
