The river contains some of the most interesting and very well preserved fossils in America. Many of the fish fossils are so well preserved that you can see the skin and scales. Many evolutionists have advocated these fossils formed over a long period of time. Season after season a another thin layer of sediment was added.
This would be a good science experiment to see if fish could actually been preserved in such a state. To took many million years for the fossils to form, evolutionists claim. Well of course we don’t have millions of years to test the data but certainly the idea is still testable.
Take a freshly dead fish and let it try to gradually sink to the bottom of the river or lake. What generally happens? Yes, the dead fish will float (unless the current takes it under), then it begins to decompose in water. Do you really think the body of the dead fish would stay in tact long enough for it to become a fossil over millions of years? Would it really survive other animals from eating it’s dead body?
Not possible. No way, no how. Rapid fossilization is the best explanation. The only way for a fish to be that well preserved in a fossil, is the fact that the fish’s body had to have been rapidly covered which would of protected it from decomposing further, and being eaten by bacteria or other animals.
Next time when you are able see the fossils from Green River like the one below, look to see if you notice any darker and lighter biannual layers called varves. This is an old earth hypothesis, which states fossils that are massively old, show these types of shades in the layers.
The layers are very fragile which can be split apart. Observing the fossils for the layers, they look creamy white limestone. No darker or lighter layers. Another proof it was rapid fossilization, are stingrays. These animals are hard to fossilize because their skeletons are composed mainly of cartilage, which disintegrates rapidly upon death. Yet, there is a good number of stingray fossils from Green River.
It’s quite clear, these fossils did not form over millions of years. The fish would either would have either rotten out, or have been eaten by other animals or both. There also would be a good number of stingray fossils. And lastly, the shades of the layers do not represent something massively old. It does however, agree with the young earth creationist model.
