Please get your name on the Sign-In Sheet I’d like to start sending emails to everyone about Club events and Club related information. I can send these to your school Gmail account or as a text message to your phone. If you would prefer a text message, please include your phone number and cell phone carrier. (AT&T, Verizon, etc.)
First and foremost, if there really was a global flood that covered the entire earth, churning up millions of tons of sediment and debris, killing every living creature that was not aboard Noah’s ark, what would be the most obvious evidence you would expect to find? Wouldn’t it be millions and millions of fossilized remains of people and animals buried in sedimentary layers of rock that were clearly deposited by large quantities of water. And wouldn’t you expect to find these over the entire surface of the planet? Interestingly enough, what we find is…
BILLIONS OF DEAD THINGS BURIED IN ROCK LAYERS LAID DOWN BY WATER ALL OVER THE EARTH “And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.” - Genesis 7:21
POLYSTRATE FOSSILS Fossilized remains of organic material running vertically though multiple layers of strata How could this fossil have formed if each layer of sediment takes thousands of years to accumulate?.
We find a lot of these Polystrate Fossils. And what’s better we know how they are made because we’ve observed it actually happening!
On May 18 th, 1980 Mount St. Helens erupted with a force that was equivalent to 24 Megatons of TNT HERE’S THE SHORT VERSION…
The ferocious explosion took out acres of trees, snapping them like toothpicks and washing them away in the ensuring mud flows & floods
These trees were washed into nearby Spirit Lake where they consolidated into large log mats that floated for decades, many of these enormous log rafts continue to float to this day.
Eventually many of these trees became waterlogged & began to float in the vertical position. Slowly they started to sink to the bottom of the lake
As these logs sank they were rapidly buried by the continual deposit of sediment from the volcano and mudflows. Many were completely covered in less than a decade.
Most commonly these fossils appear as trees. However, there have also been whales and other sea life found in the vertical position, as well as crouching dinosaurs POLYSTRATE FOSSILS Although this whale was not buried vertically, the 10-20’ height or girth of most whales would easily require numerous layers of sediment to completely cover.
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? We find fossils of animals doing things that seem to suggest they were buried very rapidly and not over a period of thousands or millions of years. GIVING BIRTH EATING
MARINE LIFE FOSSILS FOUND HIGH ABOVE SEA LEVEL Read “Geologic Evidences for the Genesis Flood” by Marcus Ross at AnswersInGenesis.com And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. - Genesis 7:19
BENT ROCK LAYERS These amazing layers were created when freshly deposited layers of sediment from the flood were bent under the force of the great upheavals that occurred near the end of the flood as the waters abated.
BENT ROCK LAYERS “Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. 7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.” - Psalm 104:6-9
BENT ROCK LAYERS ”Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power.” -Psalm 65:6
BENT ROCK LAYERS “And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,” -Isaiah 2:14
A LITTLE WATER AND A LOT OF TIME OR A LOT OF WATER AND A LITTLE TIME? Are we honestly expected to believe that this narrow, feeble river is capable of carving this massive canyon out of solid rock?
Imagine if the scale of this erosion scenario were increased to global proportions. What kind of results would you expect to see? Look similar? We are all familiar with the erosion capabilities of a sudden down pour of rain.
Grand Canyon The current topography of the region to the Northeast of Grand Canyon has some interesting features that seem to fit with the idea of a global flood. Strangely enough, some of the best evidence is the fact that there is currently almost no water in this area. However, if the low lying areas were to be filled in with water, they would look something like this… WHERE’S THE WATER? WHERE’S THE DIRT?
If this amount of water were turned loose over layers of freshly deposited sediment, what kind of erosion effects would you expect to result? And if all of this water did erode the 277 miles of Grand Canyon, where did all the dirt go?
Hidden beneath the flat floor of the Gulf of California’s Northern Basin are at least 6,000 cubic miles of sediments. That basin, bounded on the south by the largest islands in the Gulf, has an area of 15,000 square miles. Sediment depths are up to 1.2 miles thick! About half the basin’s sediments were rapidly transported from the Grand Canyon (on the figure’s northern horizon), along the path now occupied by the Colorado River.
WHAT HAPPENED ON MARS? Valles Marineris 2,500 miles long 125 miles wide 23,000 feet deep 10x longer and wider than Grand Canyon and 3x deeper NO LIQUID WATER ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET Generally accepted “scientific” conclusion? GLOBAL FLOOD!?
COMPARE THAT TO EARTH Grand Canyon 277 miles long 10-18 miles wide 8,000 feet deep River flowing through the length of the canyon Evidence of enormous ancient lakes in immediate geographic vicinity 70% OF PLANET COVERED BY LIQUID WATER Generally accepted “scientific” conclusion? SLOW EROSION OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS GLOBAL FLOOD CONSIDERED LAUGHABLE & UNSCIENTIFIC

PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR VOTE FOR WHAT WE SHOULD COVER DURING OUR NEXT CLUB MEETING ON OCT. 30 TH ~ firstname.lastname@example.org ~email@example.com DINOSAURS: Are they in the Bible? Were they alive at the same time as humans? How old could they really be? AGE OF THE EARTH: Billions of years or thousands? What does the Bible say? What kind of evidence is there to support it? GARDEN OF EDEN: What was the world really like before the flood. How does the Bible describe it? Do we find evidence that confirms what the Bible says? EVOLUTION: Could God have used evolution to create the world? Does the Bible describe anything like evolution? Is there really tangible evidence to support the theory? Can I believe in God and evolution? ANOTHER TOPIC? Do you have a topic burning a hole in your mind and faith that you would like us to discuss? Let me know!
