Living Fossils (so Called): Evidence Against A Long Age for the Earth. Especially When "Living Forms" Found In Salt Water Are Also Found As Fossils In Strata That Are Consistent With Fresh Water Deposition.
"...The first display was a beautifully preserved fossil herring with signage stating, 'Modern herring live in salt water, but close Eocene relatives were abundant in the fresh water lakes of western North America.' A second display featured a spectacularly preserved fossil ray and claimed, 'Rays are rarely preserved as fossils, in part because their skeletons are made of cartilage rather than bone. Most rays prefer salt water, making this fresh water form an even more remarkable fossil...' In a recent Acts & Facts article, I discussed several similar examples of marine and terrestrial environments mixing within the same rock layer.1 Five species of sharks have been found in the same strata as T. rex fossils. And the deep-ocean-dwelling coelacanth fish has been found in rock layers with the dinosaur Spinosaurus...Contrary to the claims of uniformitarian scientists, there is no evidence that these fish lived in fresh water and somehow evolved to live in salt water—the claims are entirely speculative. These fossils are nearly identical to modern fish found only in the ocean. The spectacular preservation of these specimens serves as a stunning testament to rapid burial and the globe-sweeping catastrophic nature of the floodwaters..." See ICR article below.

An explanation. According to Judaeo-Christian principles: when Adam sinned he became corrupted (and mankind) and the physical universe as well. All of Creation groans waiting for it's redemption when God will restore man and the Creation.
Romans 8:22 "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. (JGL comment: those who have accepted Jesus as Lord have His Spirit.)
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." (JGL comment: Hope for Jesus' return and a resurrection from the dead to live with Him eternally).
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Petrified Wood: Found throughout the continents of the earth and consistent with catastrophic burial. This can be supportive of the Noah Flood Account.
Herod the Great was a schemer and a ruthless man-a prototype of mankind. He built the Herodium seen in the mid background of this picture shot across the Dead Sea towards Israel.Yet, the Lord, in contrast,will stand in his Righteousness and Holiness and He will judge the hearts of men. Come Lord Jesus Come.
