Many years ago in 1978, on a hill in the Gobi Desert, there was a Chinese geologist who found something which turned out some many years later, something pretty amazing. The first of the remains were called; “Sinornithomimus, meaning “Chinese bird mimic”.
Quite a number of years later, twenty five more dinosaurs were excavated then the location was mapped with careful precision. The discovery of the fossilized dinosaurs shows the appearance of a struggle, like they were trying to escape from something, see the picture below…
“And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.”
“Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
“All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.” Genesis 7:18-24
Of course this true and unique account of earth’s history wasn’t taken in consideration by the paleontologists who were working hard on this project and it’s explanation. David Varricchio, assistant professor of paleontology admitted that trying to find an explanation in evolutionary terms by confining himself and his team by only using a modern environment is problematic concerning the fossilized dinosaurs.
What surprised the team of paleontologists was the fact that these group of dinosaurs were young, with no adults being present or hatchlings. With the appearance of a struggle as though these dinosaurs were trying escape some sort of catastrophe fits into the creationist model concerning the flood. It’s pretty logical for the adults animals to have fled the area in a panic while leaving the youngsters and the hatchlings behind. Eventually the hatchlings were destroyed by the flood which is why none was found at the site.
Evolutionists claimed the unexpected discovery was something of a “distinctive dinosaur sociality” where adults just let the youngsters alone so they could fend for themselves. This is typical story telling in order to fit the evidence in with the hypothesis of evolution.
The mud thickness in which these young dinosaurs were trapped in represented another challenge to explain away. In uniformitarianism, “the lamination and very thin beds of the intervening unit represent slow deposition under quiet, low-energy conditions and an absence of significant invertebrate or vertebrate bioturbation.”
This particular concept has been tested in laboratory with experiments which has disproved the uniformitarian idea by showing mud readily deposits from flowing water. No doubt, this is more more evidence for a worldwide flood catastrophe rather than uniformitarianism concerning the thickness of the mud!
What becomes even more problematic when trying to fit this discovery into the evolutionary hypothesis, these dinosaurs were found in a desert!
“Through this period the region experienced an increase in overall aridity and a shift from lacustrine [lake] and fluvial [river] Lower Cretaceous facies [rocks] to predominantly aeolian [desert] dune and associated interdune facies in the Upper Cretaceous.”
How did these young dinosaurs get located in the middle of a desert? The animals were fossilized in the Ulansuhai Formation of the Upper Cretaceous which is a desert! And how could these young dinosaurs get trapped into mud so quickly that they were unable to escape in a desert? The only way for dinosaurs to get caught in thick mud, especially in the vast dryness of a desert is with a huge body of flowing water. Again, the physical evidence points to a worldwide flood, not some sort of story telling based on evolution!
