'Mummified' trees more proof of the Flood

global warmingA recent discovery of well-preserved trees in Antarctica can be explained by the biblical account of a worldwide flood, according to a Christian geologist.

It was recently announced that a team of scientists found the fossilized trees on the ice-covered continent. They estimate that the trees are some 280 million years old and were preserved down to the cellular level after being rapidly buried in volcanic ash – preserved so well, in fact, that some of the amino acid building blocks that make up the trees' proteins can still be extracted.

But Dr. Tim Clarey with the Institute for Creation Research says a more literal, biblical explanation that fits the science is that this is a result of the Great Flood told in the Old Testament. He explains that the most important thing the scientists noted they had found was that the trees had original protein in them.

"It isn't that they were frozen and preserved that way," he tells OneNewsNow. "These things were buried in rock. Just like the dinosaurs, we're finding more and more original proteins and blood cells and blood vessels in dinosaurs as well.

Clarey

"These things are supposed to be 68 to 150 million years old; in this case, they're supposed to be around 280 million years old," he continues – then asks: "How do you have original proteins that survive that long?"

The secular science community, he writes, has "no viable answers to explain remarkable finds like these." But Clarey says it can be explained by the Great Flood.

"... This is another example of Antarctica showing that there was a warmer climate down there at one point," he states. "It wasn't always icy – that didn't happen until after the Flood was over that the Ice Age really kicked in. In our opinion, at ICR, this fits exactly what the biblical story tells us in the Book of Genesis."

He says to explain this in an "old age" system is very difficult – and argues that the discovery of original proteins is scientific, empirical evidence that shows the world isn't as old as secular scientists believe.
