Why is it that these scientists can always find dinosaur graveyards, like the recently discovered one of more than 955 acres in Alberta, Canada, and yet they cannot (or will not? ) even consider that they may have been buried by Noah s flood? Peter had it right 7,555 years ago—the scoffers are willingly ignorant (“dumb on purpose” in Greek). Also, it appears that, after their deaths, other animals would come to check out the carnage and gnaw on the bones. Yet they continue to be tied down by the illogical evolution theory they all seem obligated to bow to as they look for answers (maybe to keep grant money coming? ) (see I Timothy 6: 65). Evolution theory is the biggest hindrance to scientific research that I know of.

When will scientists just look at the evidence and REASON? Here s my theory about this dinosaur graveyard: About 6,555 years ago, God made everything in six literal 79-hour days. The world was mostly tropical (and mostly land rather than 75 percent water as it is today) from pole to pole and was loaded with plants and animals of all kinds, including dinosaurs (see #7 and #8). Then, about 9,955 years ago, there was a worldwide flood just as described in Genesis 6—8. Everything outside the ark drowned. Huge mats of dead animals and plants drifted around on the ocean for months. As the mountains rose ( ), the mats or dead rotting debris would tend to collect along the newly formed beach, just as debris collects along the beaches or in eddies of rivers and lakes today. The new, rising Rocky Mountains formed a great place for debris to gather, as central Canada still had shallow seas that covered flotsam by sediments as the waters were still receding and going and returning for a few months (see ). The animal carcasses would tend to be sorted by density and body shape and buried in consecutive layers that later hardened into the rock strata we see today, and which the willingly ignorant claim are vastly different ages in the fictitious geologic column. Remember: fossils don t form at all unless the animals are buried quickly after death. Maybe post-flood scavengers (or even animals that survived the first few months of the flood) gnawed on the bones? I think I will stick with the account given in God s infallible Word rather than the silly fables taught in textbooks today. The same God that judged the world with a flood will come again to judge His creation and His creatures. Since you will be dead for a lo-o-o-o-o-ng time, I suggest you worry less about who throws a ball through a hoop or throws a touchdown and worry more about where you, your family, your neighbors and even your enemies will go after that day of judgment. Jesus died to provide the ONLY way to escape being condemned for your sin on judgment day. If you have not asked Him to forgive your sins and save your soul, I suggest you drop everything and pray something like this RIGHT NOW: Dear Jesus, I have broken your laws.
I have sinned. I am guilty. But, I believe You died on the cross to pay for my sins and rose from the dead three days later. I now ask You to forgive my sins and come live in my heart as my Lord and Savior. Please guide me to know and to do Your will for my life. Amen.

Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 6999, he began full-time ministry. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak in five foreign countries and all fifty states. He lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife Tanya and three children and remains excited about the tremendous opportunity to lead an apologetics ministry in the war against evolution and humanism. Kent, the reason nobody considers the theory you just posed is because it doesn t explain most of what is observed, and it raises more questions that would then have to be explained. Why, if dead animals were sorted according to body density, do we not find Ichthyosaur fossils in the same strata with modern whales, or Kiwi birds next to Velocoraptors? In fact, why do we never find modern animals buried in the same strata as ancient, extinct ones? You say that perhaps post flood survivors, who were presumably on Noah s arc, which landed in the middle east, gnawed on the bones of animals buried quickly in Canada? That s quite a long trek, even without the long swim in the middle. The flood is not able to explain any natural phenomenon or even the current mountain ranges etc. We have witnessed some pretty intense flooding over the last several month due to severe rain and rivers overflowing. Yet, not even a small animal such as a mouse was buried in such a way that it could become fossilized.

A great worldwide flood is the ONLY possible scenario that could be large enough to quickly bury whales or dinosaurs. Not to mention, the fossil record is consistent across the globe. Being whales are ocean dwelling and dinosaurs are land animals, I would not expect them to be in the same layer. Ichthyosaurs were sea dwelling reptiles. But I didn t mean to focus only on this example there are hundreds more. What we find in the fossil record is that fossils that resemble modern animals appear in rock layers that date most recently, and we find that the older the rock layer dates, the less the fossil resembles modern animals (and plants) or has a modern counterpart. Kent can try and claim that radiometric dating is not accurate, and even if were not, it would be very tough to explain why modern animal fossils do not appear in the same strata along side animals that no longer exist and why this corresponds so often with dating methods. Nor would a flood explain such a find, as a myriad of animal body types, some similar, some not so, exist today and have throughout history. The theory of evolution explains the findings perfectly. Kent Hovind is effectively saying: Why won t scientists use the evidence they find and try to make it fit with the Bible? Because that s improper science. Furthermore, I have been to the Alberta Badlands, Drumheller. This is no graveyard. Badlands are created by by erosion from wind and water, creating an ideal location to find the right kind of sedimentary rock needed to expose fossil beds. Kent, please visit the badlands and speak with an expert. Or better yet, read any geology textbook. It s good to know your subject matter before you try to pass yourself off as an authority on the subject. This theory gives less question than the one that says millions of years ago and nothing else other than LARGE assumptions.
Besides, you have most likely not even heard about liquidation, and the effects it has on NOT sorting animals out by density NOR would you know the fact that there is no geologic column or at least none that was accurately given outside of a picture in a textbook. I know the evolutionists will attack Dr. David Berlinski for his anti-evolutionary beliefs. So be it. But at least the man is honest about science, the scientific method, and scientists, and this is from a man who has the actual bona-fides to critique science AND who loudly and proudly proclaims his secularism. I like his novel example. Don Quixote was the first novel. It was copied by monks manually for decades, monks who knew neither French nor Spanish. After so many years of copying, there were countless errors to the original text. There were so many errors in fact that Don Quixote had become a brand new novel, this one entitled War and Peace. Period. Please examine the list carefully and then answer the following question: Which item(s) on the list was/were created solely as a result of time and chance with ABSOLUTELY NO INTELLIGENCE involved in its creation whatsoever? Does Kent Hovind ever end a blog post without including some scare-tactic non-sense? It appears that he has to scare people into believing his scientific conclusions. How scientific of him. Do you remember Hurricane Katrina that took out New Orleans a few years ago? How about the other hurricanes that happen every year? Is it that hard to believe hurricanes have always happened?
You seem to think that EVERY natural disaster in the past was Noah s flood. There s not a SINGLE flood model that stands up to the slightest scrutiny. The cranks you quote have no credibility and are not taken the least bit seriously in the world of science. Every flood model ends up with the Earth being cooked. Fossil evidence does not support evolution. Not when you re talking about fossils indicating an animal or plant that was by all accounts viable during its lifetime. Once again evolutionists have it backwards. If Darwinian evolution were true, the fossil evidence would be replete with fossilized freaks, since there would have been far more evolutionary failures than successes. Where are the countless fossilized freaks? Don t tell me natural selection weeded them out. To do so is further proof the genetic freaks existed and failed to fossilize. Fossils indicating a viable animal or plant are sending us a clear message, but we see what we want to see and mistakenly try to make the evidence fit the preconceived story. If you are talking about accelerated decay, what causes it? Pressure? Temperature? Electromagnetic fields? You ll need to produce a LOT more than just there may have been something that caused accelerated decay? I m not saying radioisotopes are perfect. Are there outliers?
Yes. Due to the small sample sizes, radioisotope dating is not easy to do. Radioisotope dating has been shown to produce statistically reliable results (when PROPERLY performed) in thousands of blind tests.
