The claim that soft tissue could not be preserved with slow and gradual sedimentation has been an argument used often by young earth creationists.  It resurfaced again yesterday in the daily news feature about fossil octopi, at the Institute for Creation Research.  Click here to see the rebuttal.

What is beneath the cross?  Andrew Snelling of Answers in Genesis answers this correctly, in that there are layers of sedimentary rock containing many fossils.  Whereas he sees this as proof of a global flood, the scientific evidence says otherwise.  Click here to read this article.

One of the claims by Creation Science Evangelism is that a fossil mammoth site in Waco, Texas provides proof of a global flood.  When you examine the issue, it is clear that it could not have been caused by a worldwide flood as they presume.  To read the article, click here.

Does a fossil of a normally tropical turtle, found in the Arctic, damage the case for an old earth?  YEC author Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research thinks so.  However, when you consider all the evidence, and not just half of it, there is no problem at all for old earth believers.  Click here to read this rebuttal.

Answers Magazine’s second in a series of Flood evidences concerns fossil graveyards.  This rebuttal examines the validity of this claim by young earth author Andrew Snelling, and shows that omission of key information indicates the deceptive tactics that the author used in order to make his point.  The rebuttal to “The World’s a Graveyard” can be read here.

High & Dry Sea Creatures

The latest rebuttal is for an Answers Magazine article from the January-March 2008 issue.  The title of the article was High & Dry Sea Creatures, and it was the first of a six part series of flood evidences.  The rebuttal can be found here.  The article claims that finding fossils high on mountaintops is proof of a global worldwide flood.  However, there is no scientific proof that the claims by the young earth author, Andrew Snelling, are true.

Precambrian Fossil Footprints

I’ve just posted a response to an ICR argument concerning Precambrian fossil footprints, which ICR uses to discredit evolution.  When treated fairly and without emotion (which so many young earth arguments use), it does not discredit evolution at all…it merely makes it clearer.  For progressive creationists, there is no issue either, as it only means an adjustment in the timeline of the creation of the organisms that made the prints.
