HOW DID FOSSILS?

One of the main contentious issues between creationists and evolutionists — how fossils were formed gradually, over millions of years, or as a result of catastrophes on a planetary scale?

The fossils that scientists find in different parts of the globe presented a wide variety of life forms ( Fig. 70 ). It and entire organisms frozen in the ice, and the bones or teeth, hardened as a result of mineralization, and insects trapped deep in the amber, and imprints of leaves or other parts of plants, bones, and animal tracks, etc. are Often preserved parts of the skeleton, but sometimes in the fossils become more and soft tissue.

The process of fossilization seems mysterious to scientists. After all, nobody has been able to reproduce it in the laboratory. Evolutionists assume that the remains of plants and animal remains appeared in different layers of the Earth as a result of a lengthy process. In the textbooks of Geology usually given the following explanation. The mineralization occurs in a gradual accumulation of salts in the tissues. Molecules of organic substances being washed away, replaced by the salts of silicon. As examples tend to be imprints of leaves and feathers of birds, formed by the indentation of objects in the soft silt, which then, after getting hard, turned to stone. It is obvious that animals,corpses have been found completely preserved in blocks of ice, died suddenly.

For a more complete understanding of the process of formation of fossils refer to the examples. It is known that all the dead in our days, living beings decompose. Sleeping fish floats on the surface of the water and gradually starts to succumb to the processes of decomposition. The corpses of the dead animals on land either eaten by predators or decompose rapidly. Dead plants are also destroyed in relatively short periods of time.

And as in the past there was a process of formation of fossils? Is the most logical explanation, according to which living creatures were rapidly buried as a result of tidal activity, massive shifts of sushi, and volcano eruptions on a global scale. Important factors in the subsequent processes of fossilization were very high temperature and pressure. Sedimentary layers were formed, thus, not gradually over millions of years, and could be the result of a cataclysm.

The fossil record is full of examples confirming this assumption. As mentioned above, the accumulation of fossils in different parts of the world indicate that living organisms once suddenly died. Developing this idea, please refer to the examples.
