RAPID DEPOSITION OF VOLCANIC ROCK
Then we see volcanic rock. This too has to move rapidly as lava or hot mud. None of these are slow moving processes. Days, weeks, maybe months, but definitely not millions or even a few years. This observation is true science.
You could say well then the fossil record is of rapid events over long periods of time. If this were true, there would be large erosion surfaces between these layers deposited millions of years apart. Producing deep canyons. No where do we see surfaces like we see in today’s world, most layers are level with very little uneven surfaces. On these fossil ripples or tracks are sometimes found.
MOST SEDIMENTARY ROCK STRATA SHOW NO EROSONAL FEATURES
Even the surfaces between different strata like Cretaceous are laid sometimes down on top of Permian or other strata, which is considered to be millions of years older; there are no large erosional features like we see today! Sometimes two layers assumed to be separated by millions of years of missing strata are called paraconformities, which means they show no sign of having been a surface for millions of years! They appear to be one continuous deposition! These breaks for millions of years are assumptions based only on theory! This fact proves these two layers were in fact continuous depositions during one continuous catastrophic event! The Grand Canyon has many paraconfomaties, as well as most other exposures of the fossil record are commonly deposited as flat layers on top of each other with little uneven erosional features.William R. Corliss, a collector, cataloger and writer on scientific anomalies, wrote the following regarding paraconformities in his book Unknown Earth, Glen Arm, Maryland: The Sourcebook Project, 1980 p. 219
“Potentially more important to geological thinking are those unconformities that signal large chunks of geological history are missing, even though the strata on either side of the unconformity are perfectly parallel and show no discernable effect? A possible though controversial inference is that our geological clocks and stratigraphic concepts need working on.”
A more logical conclusion is that these rock formations which are deposits known to have been carried by water and/or mud flows from other biological environments, which produce different assemblages of fossils, when the current changes direction. Evidence does not support the belief that these animals and plants are buried where they lived during different periods of history on the same spot where they are found today as fossils.
FOSSIL TRACKS REQUIRE RAPID DEPOSITION
Fossil tracks are not found in every level of a sedimentary rock layer, they are always found on unconformities, temporary surfaces, often covered and protected by water deposited loose sand or volcanic ash. They are usually flat layers, and even tracks on crossbeded sandstone never contain larger erosional surfaces. The tracks could be hot volcanic mud flows, of natural mud that hardens like cement. Sometimes these surfaces are eroded by flowing water creating ripples, and mud cracks. These same surfaces with dinosaur trackways and their covering soft sediment are in turn covered by other hard rock layers of sandstone, mudstone, or limestone deposited on top. Some of these fossil tracks are often pristine just as if they had been made today. And today we know that modern tracks get erased in a very short time, and there would also be a lot more of them if they were exposed for very long. Also, we do not see tracks being preserved like those found in fossil strata today. Most fossil tracks cover hundreds of square miles, and are often associated with the bones of petrified animals above them. I myself found fossilized wood from trees, as well as shellfish, reptile teeth, and dinosaur bones above the Dilophosaur tracks near Tuba City, Arizona. Hundreds of feet of rock mudstone and limestone layers above the flat limy friable sandstone track layer were mixed with volcanic ash, especially the layers directly on top of the dinosaur tracks, which was almost pure ash in rainbow colors, probably from ash falls during depositional pauses. This is how the common outcrops of the Jurassic Morrison Formation appear as rainbow colors of light green, yellow, and red mudstone colored by iron in the volcanic ash. Fossilized dinosaur bones and wood are petrified by impregnation by volcanic silicon (quartz, natural volcanic glass), which are common in this layer of the Jurassic, Morrison Formation.
This is Tuba City Jurassic Dilophosaur dinosaur tracks where I did research on putative human tracks found among these. I concluded that they were in a different layer over the track layer and were formed by nodular differential erosion. See my book where I explain my conclusions. Notice the reddish volcanic ash in the tracks left by the overlying layer which protected the tracks.
This is another place maybe Australia. And below is volcanic mixed sediment covering dinosaur tracks.
My many observations at fossil sites confirm, that if there are no volcanic minerals, there are no fossils. Except the non-petrified fossils in the Post-Flood Pleistocene. I cannot remember seeing a petrified permineralized Cenozoic fossil. The closest thing to petrifaction in the Cenozoic are the Oligocene mammal bones in the Badlands of South Dakota which are buried in pink rhyolitic ash, but they are not petrified like the dinosaur bones in the Mesozoic probably because they were buried on land under ash falls, unlike the water deposited dinosaur bones in sediment mixed with ash.
This is the pink rhyolite colored by Feldspar which makes it different from the Mesozoic beds containing dinosaurs. It is terrestrial deposited ash instead of water deposited.
YELLOWSTONEThe road markers describing the formation of the volcanically petrified trees at Specimen Ridge in Yellowstone National Park Wyoming have been changed. The new markers describe a rapid burial and petrifaction of the trees that is more compatible with a young age of planet earth. The change was prompted by evidence from the Mount St. Helens eruption.
Some researchers think that an asteroid might have struck the earth forming the caldera that became Yellowstone. Yellowstone is a huge volcano. This volcanic field has recently become much more active causing all the geysers to erupt water and steam all the time. The heat has melted the asphalt in the roads in the park. Scientists believe it will erupt in a huge volcanic upheaval.
Here is a drawing of how the petrified trees are discovered in Yellowstone. They are upright but are not on he same level indicating they are not in growth position. They were brought in by mud flows of volcanic ash.
ARIZONA’S PETRIFIED FOREST
The official website of the Arizona Petrified National Park is at NPS.gov. There they state,
“Petrified Forest has two geological formations, the Late Triassic Chinle Formation and the Miocene-Pliocene Bidahochi Formation. Many ancient environments are represented within these layers.”
“The colorful mudstones and clays of the Painted Desert badlands are composed of bentonite, a product of altered volcanic ash.”
This is the unconformity between the Flood deposited Upper Triassic Chinle below made of green and grey volcanic ash, and the Pliocene Bidahochie above. The break is assumed to be 225 million years of missing sediment. Actually it is the boundary between the Flood and the Post Flood sediment deposited in Peleg's Division. It shows more erosion than normal, but sill doesn't show the deep canyons you would expect from a surface exposed for that many millions of years.
These are petrified trees which were turned into colorful agates in pure volcanic ash in the Petrified Forest Arizona. They were carried here by mud flows without roots, pine cones, limbs, leaves, or bark.This is odd, because this Late Triassic Chinle Formation in the Petrified Forest, strata goes all the way to Tuba City where it is found on TOP of the younger Jurassic Kayenta Formation. It left Triassic petrified wood on top of the younger Jurassic dinosaur tracks when the overlying layer eroded. I discovered this myself while doing field research there on the tracks for the Creation Research Society. This Chinle Formation also has small dinosaur bones and teeth in it, as well as Dilophosaur bones as well as Phytosaur a crocodilian. The Phytosaur is the index fossil for the Triassic and should not be found with Jurassic Dilophosaur. Both tracks and skeletons of Phytosaur have been found in this Tuba City area in the Chinle at Cameron. As for the Miocene/Pliocene which is found in the Petrified Forest on top of the Jurassic/Triassic, they are about 203 million years younger than the Jurassic without canyons eroded into it like the ones seen today in the Moenkopi Wash! Triassic is dated about 208 million years ago, and Pliocene about 5 million. Where is the enormous unconformity’s erosion surface?
This is confirmation that all petrified fossil sites are catastrophic volcanic events worldwide because most dinosaur sites as well as many mammal sites are made of bentonite. Secular scientists usually forgot to mention that bentonite is ash altered by being mixed with sediment in water.
