Think about that. Does that make sense?
According to the evolution theory, how long does it take to form sedimentary layers? Charles Officer, professor at Dartmouth, gives the answer “…a rate of one centimeter per 1000 years is typical,” in his 1996 book, The Great Dinosaur Extinction Mystery, p.56.
Just look and think about this 30 foot fossil tree. It is one of hundreds of trees found near Cookville, TN in the Kettles coal mines.What would happen to the top of the tree in the thousands of years necessary to cover it at the rate postulated by Mr. Officer?
We all know that wood if exposed to the elements will rot over time, not fossilize!!!
If polystrate fossils must form quickly in order to be preserved, and if (as evolutionists believe) coal has been formed over periods lasting millions of years, how could there be so many polystrate fossils in coal veins?
The answer, of course, is that the evolutionary scenario requiring vast eons of time for the origin of coal is wrong.
Derek Ager, one of the world’s best known statigraphers, explains “…standing trees up to 10 m high in the Lancashire coalfield of north-west England. …Obviously sedimentation had to be very rapid to bury a tree in a standing position before it rotted and fell down…we cannot escape the conclusion that sedimentation was at times very rapid ” The New Catastrophism, 1993, p.49.
Yes, indeed, sedimentation was very rapid during the catastrophe event of Noah‘s flood.
