If they ‘indicate’ anything at all, it is that God created the different kinds of animals and plants fully formed, and buried them in His judgment on the world in the biblical Flood about 4,500 years ago. Well, this site provides over 30 years of information. Would you support our efforts to keep this information coming for 30 more years?
Support this site Yes, they can be useful on a regional basis, and this can be explained in terms of deposition during the global Flood.
A typical diagram of an ‘evolutionary tree’ has the creature assigned to an ‘evolutionary life-span’ (see above).
The vertical line shows the point at which it ‘appears’, and continues, either to the present, or to a point where it stops abruptly, indicating the point where evolutionists believe the creature became extinct.
However, no matter how accurate the measurements of chemicals in the rocks are, there is no way of calibrating a dating technique for supposedly pre-historic events. So if a radiometric dating result indicates an age of 40 million years, it is interpreted as representing, not the age of the rock, but a later geological process, such as disturbance, reworking or contamination.
The fossils always trump the supposedly objective radiometric dating! Evolutionists would say either that it hadn’t evolved yet, or that it had become extinct.
When they are interpreting the fossils, evolutionary geologists assume that animals evolved over millions of years, and that fossils buried together, (that is, in the same layer of rock) lived together at the same time.These examples show the futility of this assumption.The fact that an organism is not found in the fossil record does not mean it was not alive somewhere on the earth.by Gordon Howard Evolutionary paleontologists use ‘index fossils’ to assign an age to a layer of sedimentary rock and its associated fossils.Evolutionary theory assumes that a particular creature evolved from its ancestors, lived successfully for a period, then became extinct as its descendants evolved better ways of surviving.
They assume that layers in different parts of the world containing the same fossils are the same age.
