Many fossil bearing shales from another famous fish catastrophic site in Wyoming USA have dark and light layers called varves. According to evolutionists, these represent seasons, i.e. summer produced a lot of growth resulting in much carbon (a dark layer), then winter produced little or no growth therefore less carbon (a lighter layer). Therefore a sequence of dark-light-dark-light layers supposedly represents two years. One 45cm (18in) thick ‘fossil fish’ bed from Ulrich Quarries in Wyoming contains enough varves to indicate 4000 to 20,000 years of formation. (Authorities vary on the count.) The prejudice to make the earth old can be exposed right here. The maths is simple. If 45cm (18 in) of rock took 4000 years, then in 1 year (45cm divided by 4000) only .01cm (.004 in) was formed. This meant it took about 100 years to lay down one centimetre of rock (250 years per inch). Look at your fossil fish and imagine it dying, sinking to the bottom and being slowly buried by .01cm of sediment each year until it was covered and preserved! The fish would disintegrate long before it was half covered. Those thousands of varve layers in Wyoming rock are not real years after all. They represent minor variations within larger currents which buried tens of thousands of fishes in a catastrophic flood of mud.
In the year of Noah’s flood when rain first began to fall, horrendous quantities of mud rapidly poured into river and sea for the first time, suffocating and burying a vast number of fish. As the fountains of the deep broke open, even more water poured out to flood the whole earth and bring about God’s judgement on man’s sin. The first major catastrophic fossil beds began to form at this time and have only formed in catastrophic circumstances since then. The past was faster than most people think.
