Fast Water, Quick Canyons

Dinos on Ice?

Job 38:29
"Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?"

The fact that dinosaur fossils are found in the Arctic suggests that there have been catastrophic changes on this Earth since those dinosaurs lived. Some of the changes, like the worldwide flood, are even described in the Bible.

Yet, under the ice, scientists are finding fossilized plants like ferns, pine trees and even ginkgoes. These finds provide evidence of a much warmer climate. But the fossilized remains of animals provide evidence of a considerably warmer climate. Fossils of three species of dinosaur have also been found. One has been named Cryolophosaurus or "cold-crested lizard," and was about 23 feet long. Another, Glacialisaurus, or "frozen lizard," was also about 23 feet long. A smaller dinosaur with spikes – named Antarctopelta or "Antarctic shield" – was about 13 feet long. These fossils were found in the same sedimentary flood layers as dinosaurs around the world. These fossils and the record of magnetization of various layers of rock provide evidence that Antarctica moved south to its present South Pole location during the year that it was covered with flood waters.

Even though God has allowed great cataclysms to strike the Earth, He has never left His own without His love and care.

Prayer: 
Father, in the face of dire predictions about catastrophe, teach me to take comfort in Your fatherly care. Amen.
