Excavation of THORN/SPINE FOSSIL beds usually labelled Neuropteris by our team.
John Mackay in front of bed (September 24th 2012). We first found the fossils in the rubble of a 2007 cliff fall after a very cold winter caused much cliff to collapse. It has taken quite a while to trace the thorns back up the cliff to their source and then to show they are found for several hundred meters of exposure beds around the cliff face.
The Thorns come from a narrow layer only a few centimetres thick which contains many varieties of plant fossils and most in excellent shape indicating that they did not lie around for vast ages in a swamp being slowly digested by bacteria or rotting into swamp soup. They also show no sign of having grown where they are found and many show a current direction which can be seen in the long blackened stems in the photo.
Some of the Neuropteris leaves are polystrate; that is they are buried at right angles to the horizontal bedding (front right of rock) while the thorn stems (back left) lie along the bedding as seen in this photo.
Many of the larger stems are also polystrate further indicating rapid deposition. This specimen is now on its way to our Museum in Ontario.
NOW HOW OLD ARE THESE THORNY FOSSILS?
As usual we encountered much other evidence of rapid surges of burial which included this polystrate giant reed like tree trunk in rather bad condition after a cliff fall removed the front half. Stuart Macleod is in front for scale. When these trunks come fully out their cross sections are often amazing as they can be full of amphibian, fish and land plant fossils. Further indication of
The proving of this extended thorn/spine bed along the cliffs north of Sydney Nova Scotia on Monday 24th September, by Stuart Macleod and John Mackay has implications the evolutionists run from or yell abuse at or dismiss. The current ‘official’ age of these cliffs with Carboniferous coal beds is around 300 million years old. But its easy to prove that geologists don’t really care how old the coal seams are – but they really really do care how old they aren’t! What do I mean? The ages of these rocks have changed many times since Darwin’s mentor and founding father of modern Geology Charles Lyell set out to “free the Science from Moses,” and the ‘300 or so million’ is just the latest date from whoever is the currently accepted authority. And that’s the real point of these spiny fossils – who is the accepted authority in history?
The majority of the worlds earth history buffs – geologists/palaeontologists etc hate to be reminded that since the Creator was there in the beginning, and He made a world without thorns, therefore any rocks containing fossil thorny structures must post date the first created man. Remember that God told Adam as judgement for Adam and Eves sin, the ground would henceforth produce thorns, thistles and weeds. This would also mean that any rocks with fossil thorns must be less than 6 or so thousand yrs old, which is the only age geological authorities insist these rocks must not be. Not because of the number 6000, but because of the challenge to their authority. That’s why even high school students learn that fossils are defined as ‘10,000 yrs or older.’ It rules out the authority of the biblical Creator by definition. Convenient eh? Makes evidence irrelevant doesn’t it, which is exactly what they accuse creationists of. So keep up your support of our Research Projects as we 1. expose the total lack of evidence for the most foolish theory that has grabbed he attention of millions – Darwin/s Evolution. AND 2. your support makes it possible to also collect the great evidence of creation and flood. DONATE NOW Also see great MP4s Darwin On The Rocks (Parts 1 & 2), Times up Darwin, Darwin’s Evolution
