Fossil Friday – Polystrate Fossils

Polystrate fossils evidence for Noah’s flood

These are my favorite types of evidence for creation, the ones that make for gorgeous pictures! When you drive past great ridges of every color you get the feeling that the God we love is an artist of tremendous magnitude.

What evidence am I referring to? The fossilized trees found standing upright in the middle of layers of rocks. These rock layers should have taken millions of years to be laid down. How is it possible for a tree to withstand millions of years all while lying upright? No geologists question the impossibility of this. Yet, they see no reason to change their theory, they have faith in evolution despite evidence otherwise.

What do these trees really show? Quickly laid down layers from a great flood. Why do so many both within the church and without want to refute the validity of Noah’s flood? To those unsaved Noah’s flood relates Gods judgement on the wicked, and their own complete inability to stand in the face of His wrath. To the saved, or those claiming to be saved, Noah’s flood seems as though we serve an angry God so they choose to ignore it, or in more serious cases, refute it.

There are two questions then, did the flood happen? And, do we serve an angry God?

As a believer we must accept the truth, Jesus Christ Himself spoke of the flood as a true event. Even if there were not massive evidences all over the world got a global deluge, the Messiahs testimony would be all I needed to believe.

Are we serving an angry God? This question is confused by mankinds seemingly endless ways to misunderstand God Himself. God is not sometimes omniscient, He is always omniscient. He is not sometimes loving, His loving kindness knows no end. Psalms 7:11 says God is angry with the wicked everyday. God is always all the things He is, He is not man that changes emotions like they were going out of style. He is always loving, always just, always merciful, and always angry with the wicked.

How can that be? Let me ask you this, friends, why do you find murder so deeply disturbing? When someone abuses a young child, why does that make you righteously indignant? Because you love Gods creation, the young innocent particularly. If you had no love for humanity you would find no angry in the murder of innocents. Gods love for His creation is the very evidence for His anger against the sin which corrupts them.

Beloved, Gods Word is true. We can stand on it firmly.

  1. Once again, I have to tell you the same thing: evidence of “A flood” (or volcanic eruption or mud, etc, slide) is NOT evidence of a “Noah flood”!

    A “Noah flood” would be a flood covering the entire Earth on the same day, which would be EASILY proven by dating all the “flood” (really, there can be multiple causes for organisms to be suddenly covered by sediment) events you highlight here. As it is, each of the examples you have highlighted can be dated to many different years, which disproves your Noah hypothesis! Cherry picking evidence only serves to make you look either unable to do basic research or so religious you do not care for facts that don’t tell you what you want to know.

    I do not have the time or ambition to go around citing dates for every specific example you’ve used. You are more than able to gather and share this information when you locate your “examples”, but that would quickly spoil the narrative you are trying to spin.

    Please stick with the posts on theology. There’s plenty of room for opinion there. If you do feel the need to continue to post “flood evidence” please quit insulting the intelligence of your readers and note the dating, rock structure, and other relevant information associated with each event you cite. If you have a hypothesis for why events dating to different Periods would have actually occurred on the same day (per Noah), feel free to share it then. I assume your hypothesis would be something along the lines of “God causes the Earth to appear much older than it is” or will use the false narrative of “even though scientists use numerous methods for dating a single sample, which rely on different elements and/or strategies, and not all rocks can be dated using the same methods because of the nature of the specific rock (a person would look really stupid to carbon date a rock that is inorganic 😉), and even though the dating for an individual rock using multiple correct methods gives us a consistent age, well, God says otherwise, so this science is fake”.

    1. Good morning Catherine, it’s good to hear from you again! Come, let us reason together…

      First I must point out that Noah’s flood did not, according to the Bible, flood the entire earth in one day. It took 40 days for the ark to begin to float. Genesis 7 explains this further, the flood was not a one day event.

      Rock dating, as you have incorrectly concluded to be both accurate and consistent, is not conclusive enough to be considered evidence for anything.
      The begin of dating of rocks is based entirely on circular reasoning as I’m certain you are already aware of. The other ‘dating methods’ used are always based on the begin assumption of millions of billions of years rather then objective evidence. As it is, nearly 90 percent of dating methods show young earth not deep time. Thus, the cherry picking is done by scientists determined to show rocks as old as they desire them to be.
      It’s also important to note that more often then not the exact same sample of rocks sent to multiple laboratories comes back wth varies different dates. Far from consistent dating.
      Lastly, in regards to the dating of the rocks, this is all not observable science. Science will never ‘prove’ the dates of these rocks. This is because no one was there when they were formed, observable science must be observed. When lava rock is dated, assuming it would be shown to be a few days old, it came out millions of years old according to the decay rates already in it. This is evidence enough that the present is not key to the past when it comes to the rates at which things decay on a molecular level.

      Now, as to my blog and where I will go with it. I am explicitly commanded in the world to tear down every high and lofty idea that sets itself up against the Truth. Whether that is heresy, false religions, or evolution, that is what I will do. I hope you will continue to come back and engage in this debate.

      The final point I would like to make here is that the Bible warns of those who are wise in their own estimate. In the last days scoffers will come, the Bible even tells of those who will say things go on the way they always have. Jesus Himself said His second return will be like unto the days of Noah. They ate, they drank, they married and were given in marriage, until the flood came. Then Noah and his God didn’t seem like much to scoff at. I say this with all my heart, Catherine, repent, cry out to God and be saved! There is no evidence in evolutionism, there is only assumptions leading people astray. What you call ‘facts’ is just the blind leading the blind. There is good reason for thousands of scientists to reject the theory of evolution. Consider if you’ve based your believe in God on a faulty, baseless, theory. One day we will all sit before the judgement seat. I don’t want you to go before the Creator of all and say ‘but evolution’ please consider the possibility that evolutionism is wrong.
