FiReaNGeL writes to tell us BiologyNews.net is reporting that Norway has uncovered their first set of dinosaur remains. The catch? They found it 2,256 meters below the ocean floor. From the article: “It is merely a coincidence that the remains of the old dinosaur now see the light of day again, or more precisely, parts of the dinosaur. The fossil is in fact just a crushed knucklebone in a drilling core – a long cylinder of rock drilled out from an exploration well at the Snorre offshore field.”
“How did it get there?!” The comments ask.
It’s simple! The Great Flood, as documented in the Book of Genesis.
Ever seen what happens to dirt after it’s been covered with water for several months? It kinda gets all slimey and icky and… nasty. Like the bottom of ponds and lakes that don’t have sand down there. It’s super sparse mud. You step in it and it’s just……. SQUIIIISH.
Anyway, you get the idea. Now imagine that the entire planet is covered with water for weeks and weeks and weeks. Things would end up looking like the bottom of a lake. With the good ol’ moon that orbits this fair planet, there’d be some craaaaazy tides going on without land to keep the water at bay. You’d get super currents all over the place, flowing around and carrying this slime all over the place… and, along with the mud slime, you’d have people, buildings, animals… dinosaurs!
Then when the planet’s surface buckled and caved into what we now see as oceans (and consequently, what went down also forced things up… thus mountains!) and the water all flowed in to fill this great big hole (as water usually does)… it carried tons of mud with it. This mud… had dinosaurs. (Among other things, of course.)
This is also how our oil fields were formed, by the way. You know scientists have been able to create oil by processing garbage, right? Well, that’s what happened. Swirling whirlpools of water brought together bunches of dead things into clusters (you’ve seen that happen, right? Even the little whirly-things you make in pools will swirl around and collect all the dirt into the center of it) and then buried it in mud, which, over time, in some places, hardened into rock… but the dead things inside the rock decomposed and did whatever dead things do… and eventually formed oil.
Oil is essentially uber ancient dead things…
Anyway, I got kinda distracted.
But that’s how dinosaurs were buried under over 2000 meters of ocean.
…and that, class, is your daily dose of Christian history. Except… if you were really a class, and I was really a teacher in a school, I’d probably be fired right about now, because I was teaching this explanation instead of the way that benefits the theory of evolution.
“ZOMG, think of the children and their poor minds! Shame on you for warping them!”
