I am working in southern Ohio on the Kentucky border. Actually my RV is parked in Kentucky and working in Aberdeen, Ohio, about 60 miles south of Cincinnati. My question is about some rocks that were taken out of a road cut-through in Kentucky in the same area by a buddy of mine to make his fireplace out of. All of this heavy as lead rock has seashells and the fossils of auquatic animals embedded in it. If we hold to the 6000 some odd young Earth, how do we explain this occurence of an ocean type body of water on top of a hill in Kentucky. I'm not sure I hold to "that" young of an Earth, but wouldn't an oceananic(sp?) type body of water have to make this Earth a lot older than we think? The fossils and shells are there, I have saw them with my own eyes. A biologist at the site said that there was in fact an ocean covering Kentucky "millions" of years ago. I don't know about that, but if it was a little as 6000 years ago it was covered, wouldn't the evidence be a lot more noticable in Kentucky? The evidence is not wide spread until large sections of Earth are uncovered.
