Doesn't the Order of Fossils in the Rock Record Favor Long Ages?

    Fossils are the remains, traces, or imprints of plants or animals that have been preserved in the earth's near-surface rock layers at some time in the past.1 In other words, fossils are the remains of dead animals and plants that were buried in sedimentary layers that later hardened to rock strata. So the fossil record is hardly "the record of life in the geologic past" that so many scientists incorrectly espouse,2 assuming a long prehistory for the earth and life on it. Instead, it is a record of the deaths of countless billions of animals and plants.

    Fossil trees that pass through many layers of rock suggest they were laid down suddenly, as from a world-wide flood and not a slow process over ages. Here is a good article concerning this.

    The drawings alone show how these tree fossils argue against long ages for the different layers of rock.

    So are you saying that the Earth may have been created before 4004 BC?

    Since there was the great flood that coverd whole earth in genesis, with the vast displacement/upheavel of rock layers/stra, would say that no fossil record is really useful to prove older earth!

    Ditto using dating methods, due to vast climate change upon earth at that time!
