Biology - fossils
posted by Mohammad .
my sister Shreya be sick so i posting her biology questions.
one question ask hw did creationists explain fossils.
she write this be about noah's flood but what be noah's flood? i look up on internet for her and there be too much confusing words. i only be able to make out when it hit species be covered with sediment and then fossils happen. but what be more descriptive answer?
Noah's flood was the story in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament. It tells how God got mad because so many people were evil and sinful. He told Noah to build an ark (boat) and gather a male and female from each species of animal. Then God sent a flood that lasted 40 days and 40 nights. According to the story, then these few people and the animals that survived started repopulating the earth.
I think Creationists don't believe that fossils were alive before the flood.
Fossils are the remains of ancient plants and animals that were imbedded in rock.
Creationists do not believe in radioactive carbon dating, so they won't agree that there could be fossils older than Adam and Eve
thank you very much ms. sue and drwls :)
