What most people miss about these beautiful specimens, is that the pointed shells usually lie in one direction. This is true for millions of Nautiloids that have been dug from the Atlas mountains over the past century. The shells were not buried where they lived. They have been washed into place, catastrophically dumped and buried as flowing water aligned them in the direction of the current. Such beds of oriented Nautiloids are common throughout the world’s limestone deposits in Lochkov, Czechoslovakia; in Shanghai, China; in Canada, and particularly through the area near our US office where Bob Powell and John Mackay have collected. In the present oceans, after a Nautilus dies, its shell becomes bloated with gas and can float great distances. They usually end up on beaches where they can be collected by avid enthusiasts. Nowhere in the present world do they show large scale alignment as in the great Orthoceras (oops—Geisonoceras.sp) limestone deposits.

The Nautiloids began as a large family whose only remaining species is the modern Nautilus, (a curled variety). In all Nautiloids, the animal built a new chamber each year on the front of the shell and lived in the new chamber. The shell therefore grew by one chamber each year on the front of the shell and lived in the new chamber. The shell therefore grew by one chamber each year up to several metres (7 to 8 feet) in length. ‘Chamber’ dividers are an obvious part of the fossil. One television nature documentary shows how a Limpet shell evolved to Nautilus. The first Limpet clung to the rocks, mutated to produce another Limpet on top, which then produced a third Limpet until it became a series of chambers making it too difficult for the bottom Limpet to hold on. So it floated away and became a straight Nautiloid. The cartoon was beautiful, but the science is a lie.

The large number of Nautiloid types that used to exist, compared with the few which remain, remind us that the history of life is from one of decreasing variety, not increasing complexity as evolutionists claim. As with every other fossil family, Nautiloids suddenly appear in the fossil record. They show no evidence of slowly evolving, and no link to any non-Nautiloids.
