FINDING FOSSIL FLOOD EVIDENCE IN THE UK (PART 2 Isle of Wight)

A September 2015  research trip took us to the Isle of Wight (IoW), the home of Britain’s dinosaurs! This is the best dinosaur fossil location in Europe, and the sixth best location in the world, with over twenty different species found here. All dinosaur remains have been found in the Wealden formation – a soft clay-like rock. The secular interpretation for the origin of this formation is somewhat intriguing. According to a popular field guide of the geology of the IoW, the formation formed on what is known as the Wealden Floodplain. This was a big basin into which large floods washed sediment, burying and fossilising creatures living therefossilstump2.  Even the secular interpretation is in support of catastrophic flooding.

Extreme evidence of this is found at the Hanover Point Fossil Forest. This is a large ‘jumbled mess’ of prostrate fossil logs, clearly washed in and dumped at their current location before being buried and fossilised. Just beyond the fossil forest are several dinosaur footprint trackways, again, evidence for a catastrophic burial, as footprints don’t last long under normal conditions.

Above the Wealden formation is another flood wash-in. It is a hard, thin limestone layer chocka-block full of shells, coprolite (fossilised dung), bone, and even pterosaur (flying reptile) teeth, one of which we found. Another interesting feature was the ripple marks in this layer, formed by the action of the water on soft sediment, then buried and preserved. This is clearly rapid burial!

All of which is a real challenge to those who are Theistic evolutionists and claim that dinosaurs lived fought suffered and died millions of years before man. However, the Bible clearly states that all suffering is a result of man’s sin. Broken bones are very painful, especially if not treated. This dinosaur clearly went through a lot of pain as the bone self mended. How then, could this dinosaur have suffered during the vast ages before mankind existed if pain and suffering came only after man was created? Therefore any respect for the Word of God knows from Genesis that suffering dinosaurs were only possible after Adam sinned so our ‘healed’ rib fragment is post the creation of man. But dinosaurs living alongside of  man means no millions of years! Theistic evolutionists claim to respect God’s Word, however they completely undermine it from the very beginning.

 In the words of the man who began the reformation, “It is not true, as several heretics and other vulgar persons allege, that God created everything in the beginning, and then let nature take its own independent course, so that all things now spring into being of their own power; thereby they put God on a level with a shoemaker or a tailor. This not only contradicts scripture, but it runs counter to experience. When Moses writes that God created Heaven and Earth and whatever is in them in six days, then let this period continue to have been six days, and do not venture to devise any comment according to which six days were one day. But, if you cannot understand how this could have been done in six days, then grant the Holy Spirit the honour of being more learned than you are.” Martin Luther, What Martin Luther Says: A Practical Home Anthology for the Active, p. 1523.  How true the words of this man are! Let us not undermine the true Word of God, but stand strong on its firm foundation!
