Fossilized eggs

Embryo development

  • Ernst Haeckel- a German zoologist- claimed to have drawn embryos that go through a stage of development that shows its earlier forms.
  • Ernst Haeckel published his drawings and are still in modern day biology text books.
  • Although they are in the text books, it has been proven wrong 130 something years ago.
  • First row, Haeckel’s original 1874 Anthropogenie embryo sketches. Second row,
  • some of Richarson’s published photos of embryos,5 showing Haeckel to be off the
  • mark. Third row, three of Richards’ doctored versions of the photos, in order to save
  • Haeckel. A – Salamander, with yolk removed. B – Chick, illegitimately straightened
  • out. C – Human embryo, also with the heart bulge removed, making the same ‘error’
  • as Haeckel. The first two rows are commonly used in creationist literature as an
  • expose, and will now have to be defended

Oard collates a diverse array of dinosaur fossil anomalies into a cohesive and well-rounded explanation. For example, his model accommodates the discovery of many dinosaur eggs and egg nests buried in mud with no vegetation in sight, which soon lithified. In his model, he considers and successfully interprets the paucity of juvenile forms in certain bone beds, and the fact that some deposits have mostly only one dinosaur kind. Along the way, the reader is presented with powerful evidence for a Noahic Flood and for a young world, as well as evidence that contradicts evolutionary guesswork.

Paluxy dinosaur footprints

  • I have spent considerable hours on the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas, over the last few decades, pondering the stunning dinosaur footprints and their rock layers. Each light-grey-coloured limestone layer is about 37 cm (15 in) thick and is comprised of clay marl for the bottom several inches, grading upward to extremely hard limestone. And these layers repeat like an enormous and expansive stack of rock pancakes. How did the layers get there like that, and how did the dinosaur footprints get trapped inside them?1Was it tides during the Flood? If these are Flood layers, as they must be, then were they deposited early, middle, or late in the Flood? Tas Walker’s paradigm (biblicalgeology.net), which Oard incorporates, maintains that since tracks mean animals were walking around, then the layers that contain them must have been deposited early in the Flood, before that moment when the last breath from the last living land creature not on the Ark was extinguished. But if that’s the case at Paluxy, then how is it possible that the miles of sediment below these layers had already been deposited?

Track ways

  • In Dinosaur Challenges and Mysteries, Oard relayed how recent decades have greatly expanded the dinosaur trackway sites, which are now known to extend from north central Texas to Colorado and points between and beyond (all helpfully mapped in the book.) Oard’s model, an early version of which he published in 1997, is the best explanation that I have read for these tracks and other dinosaur fossil phenomena.2
  • Dinosaur Challenges and Mysteries is a must-read for any Christian who is serious about understanding or explaining the dinosaur fossil evidence.
  • He presents compelling evidence that the dinosaurs that left behind their tracks and eggs in these places did so when relatively shallow waters removed the uppermost elevations at that time, and that the creatures were truly on their last legs, treading water for perhaps hours before finally being able to step in submerged mud when waters lowered. This all occurred during a kind of lull between the violent inundatory then abating Flood phases according to Oard’s ‘BEDS hypothesis’, which stands for ‘Briefly Exposed Diluvial Sediments’ (p. 115).
  • Oard explains,
  • “If there were places that were submerged, covered by sediment, and then re-emerged for a short time, then all the dinosaur data can be explained by their final hours or days being spent on the freshly-laid-and-then-exposed flat Flood sediments” (p. 115).

References

  • Since the topic often arises, it is good to clarify that although in the 1980s ICR’s John Morris favoured the interpretation of certain Paluxy tracks as having been human, he changed his mind on the matter for reasons explained in an ICR Impact article titled ‘The Paluxy River Mystery’. There appears at present no supposedly human fossil tracks that cannot be explained as either eroded dinosaur tracks or carvings, although there is good reason to continue investigation.

Fossil Plant Chromosomes Look Modern

  • As mere fragments, most fossils reveal only small hints of ancient life forms, like a single segment from a crinoid stem, or a lone hadrosaur tooth. But a fossilized fern's stem recently discovered in Sweden shows its every detail, sending some clear messages about its origin.
  • Publishing in the journal Science, three authors from Sweden described the spectacular sub-cellular preservation of a royal fern in Jurassic rock.1 Mineral-rich water infiltrated its tissues faster than they could even begin to disintegrate.
