000319AM

Last week we saw the incredible security of being in God’s Ark of Safety. This week we see the other side, the outside of that Ark. The same Hand that shut the door securely protected the eight inside. Is the same Hand that sealed the doom of all those outside. God rescued eight, but no one escaped the extinction level event that hit the planet Earth just about 5,000 years ago. It was neither an asteroid nor a comet, it was a Flood. God says He destroyed the Earth’s entire human population. All but eight humans were killed in the flood. Is there really biblical evidence for claims of this nature? Yes, and that is what we will see this morning.

No one could escape the Flood because God caused the earth’s crust to break up at the start of the Flood. Huge eruptions under the oceans for thousands of miles literally boiled the ocean and released steam into the air along with volcanic ash. Immense tidal waves were also created. The steam and the ash that went up precipitated as rain for the entire period of the eruptions. All that are familiar with volcanic eruptions knows this phenomenon. There would be a cooling down of the earth”s atmosphere as well due to the blockage of sunlight. Then oceanic waters not only boiled off and gave the rain, but also swept across all landmass with such force, that the soil and all the trees were uprooted into a muddy soup.

No one escaped, the Lost World perished in the Genesis Flood engineered by God. This is the event we will read about in God’s Word. And this event directly caused the death of every man woman, and child on Earth, except 8. It devastated all the forests of earth. It drowned, or suffocated every land animal on earth. It killed every massive and powerful dinosaur. It destroyed every human being. And it left its footprints globally.

How does God’s Word describe the Flood?

Job 12:15 The waters overturned the earth.
Psalm 29:10 The Flood testified God as eternal king.
Psalm 104:6-8 Flood terminated by God carving out the ocean beds.
Isaiah 54:9 Waters of Noah went over the earth.
Mt. 24:37 The days of Noah like those when Christ comes.
Mt. 24:39 The Flood took them all away.
Luke 17:27 The Flood destroyed them all.
1 Pet. 3:20 Only eight souls saved on the ark through the Flood.
2 Pet. 2:5 God spared not the old world (Greek kosmos); brought the Flood on the world of the ungodly; the “flood” (Greek kataklusmos) applied solely to Noah’s Flood.
2 Pet. 3:6 The world that then was perished by the watery cataclysm.

No one in the Ark perished. No one on the Earth survived. This event is extremely well documented because every New Testament writer refers to the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Plus Jesus Christ referred to each of the first seven chapters of Genesis. And, all but ten New Testament books have references to Genesis 1-11. Every chapter of Genesis 1-11, except chapter 8, is referred to somewhere in the New Testament. Thus we safely conclude that every New Testament writer apparently accepted these early chapters of Genesis as historically accurate.

Last time we started a series on the World that Perished in the Genesis Flood. This series will investigate the six fundamental truths about the World that Perished in the Genesis Flood. What are those truths?

  • In the 1st message of this World that Perished in the Genesis Flood Series we found they had NO TIME FOR GOD. And that is what we studied last time.
  • Next, the World that Perished in the Genesis Flood had NO REGARD FOR THEIR AMAZING CREATOR. We will see the planet earth flourishing with life. We will see this globe teeming with plant, animal and human population explosions. And all the time Evil was INTENSIFYING. Simply stated, a life with no time for God soon loses all respect, regard and acknowledgment of their Creator.
  • Thirdly, the World that Perished in the Genesis Flood had NO MAN LIKE NOAH. This biographical study of the life of Noah will be an amazing time of analyzing what is was that made this hero of the faith tick. Why he saved his family and how he served the Lord.
  • Number four, in the World that Perished in the Genesis Flood they had NO TESTIMONY MORE VIVID THAN THE ARK. That huge box, sitting in the back of Noah’s home with rivers of animals marching two-by-two from every corner of the globe was hard to miss. Yet, in their hardness the whole world missed the message, refusing to even listen! No scene was so powerful as the Ark.
  • This morning we will see in this World that Perished in the Genesis Flood they had NO ESCAPE FROM GOD’S WRATH. The chilling scenes of the rain, the volcanoes, the geysers, the smoke, the storms, the frantic rushing to ever diminishing higher ground. And then the final moments as men and beasts crowded atop the hills and were cut off from breathing by the raging waters.

Only God’s Word Revealing the Flood Gives the Master Key to Earth’s Riddles

Once we accept the Flood was the most destructive event that ever occurred in the past when there was life on earth, and involved violent eruptions, crustal breakup and complete submersion of all land in water with the destruction and burial of all life, we begin to realize that the Flood is the Master Key to understanding the earth’s past. Would you believe the Flood event could explain the following mysteries of earth’s past and present?

  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Distribution of continents, earth’s topography, deserts, forests, cold regions
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Stratified rock layers, canyons, river systems, petrified rock
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Prehistoric life and fossils
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the supply of coal
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Ice ages
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Human and animal distribution
  • Only Noah’s Flood explains the Origin of civilizations, cultures, races and languages

The Biblical Account of the Flood

Genesis 7-8 records the following characteristics of the Flood are noteworthy:

  • The fountains of the deep burst forth and the windows of the heaven were opened (Gen. 7:11).
  • Forty days and nights of incessant rain (Gen. 7:12). The Ark was lifted up and it floated (Gen. 7:17)
  • For 150 days the waters rose and covered all land including mountains to a depth of 15 cubits (Gen. 7:19-20; 24)
  • Then a mighty wind swept the earth over the waters. The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were shut (Gen. 8:1-2).
  • The waters receded for 150 days (Gen. 8:3).
  • The Ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat exactly five months from the start of the Flood (Gen. 8:4).
  • It was after one year and ten days from the start of the Flood that the earth became completely dry. God commanded Noah to bring every creature in the Ark outside to repopulate the earth (Gen. 8:14; 18-19).
  • And that is why those who lived right after the Flood clearly knew of the Flood event. Job 22:15-17 Will you keep to the old way Which wicked men have trod, 16 Who were cut down before their time, Whose foundations were swept away by a flood? 17 They said to God, ‘Depart from us! What can the Almighty do to them?’ (NKJV).

The Biblical Flood Explained

The Flood described in Genesis stands out as a most mysterious event. It is presented as the greatest catastrophe the earth has ever witnessed. It wiped out the entire human population of the earth; it destroyed all the beasts, and buried all the trees on earth – except those saved in a vessel called the Ark. An estimated billion people were on the earth before the Flood, and immense forests covered the earth. The so-called wild and exotic animals such as the dinosaurs and the mammoths had roamed the earth, but they all perished. If you doubt that these things did happen during the Flood, just read on. You are in for a great surprise.

But that is not all. After the Flood, a new world emerged, the one that we live on. The events of the Flood changed landmarks, topography, climate and food supply drastically. It was more than just a Flood that happened; we shall find what the real event behind the Flood was in the following pages.

Why should you check out the Flood? Because it unfolds earth’s mysterious past called ‘prehistory’. You will realize that the schoolbooks have been covering up the mightiest event since Creation and presenting a totally different explanation for past earth events, based on evolutionary models. You have not been told the real origin of fossils and the real story of prehistoric life.

To get the story straight open with me to Genesis 8:1-5.

God sent a Universal Flood That Destroyed the Earth. How do we know? Biblical Evidences of a Global Flood

Genesis 6:13, 17 Portrays Massive Destruction of Life

All humans were killed. The Bible clearly teaches that all flesh died…every man (Genesis 7:21). Genesis 9:1 confirms that only Noah’s family was saved and that every person living today is descended from his family. All air-breathing, land animals killed. The world’s entire population of air breathing, land animals died, except those taken into the ark (Genesis 7:21) – “everything on Earth” (Genesis 6:17) – “all living creatures of every kind on the Earth” (Genesis 9:16). The Bible is clear that all the air breathing, land animals perished during the flood, except those preserved with Noah – from which all modern animals are descended.

Mass graveyards of elephants, horses, dinosaurs and other creatures are found worldwide. Dinosaur fossils are distributed worldwide. Fossils are found from mountaintops to riverbeds. And the evolutionist’s geological column never exists in complete form anywhere on the earth. In all the digs clams are 95% of all fossils. Of the remaining 5% of the fossils 95% are plants. And of the remaining 5% of the fossils 95% are fish. All the dinosaurs are such a tiny part of the record. But clams, clams are everywhere. But few mammals and humans and so on. Why? Because when humans drown they float and decay. Only a very few were laid down in the record.

Genesis 7:4 Portrays Petrified Forests

Many petrified forests overlaid with lava are found in many parts of the world. Yellowstone National Park in USA has such forests. Petrified logs have been an enigma to many scientists. The evidences point rather clearly to catastrophic conditions that prevailed at the time of the Flood, when these thousands of trunks were transported and grounded in huge logjams. Many of the trunks appear to have the bark intact, indicating rapid burial before rotting could occur. The wood tissue is very well preserved as agate. Foliage has been stripped from the trunks. This was no local catastrophe, because these types of fossil trees from the “Triassic” are widespread over the Southwest. No geologist insists that the “forest” is in situ, and it is obvious that petrified logs are not being formed anywhere in the world today.

Another scientist records: “There lie thousands of fossilized logs, many of them broken up into short segments, others complete and unbroken…. The average diameter of the logs is 3 to 4 feet, and the length 60 to 80 feet. Some logs 7 feet in greatest diameter and 125 feet long have been observed. None are standing in position of growth but, with branches stripped, lie scattered about as though floated by running water until stranded and subsequently buried in the places where they are now found. The original forests may have been scores of miles distant. The cell structure and fibers have been almost perfectly preserved by molecular replacement of silica . . . ”

Genesis 7:6, 10 Shows a World with River Systems, Watermarks

The earth’s major river systems and deltas do not go back to a long past; only several thousand years. The present topography and river systems of the earth resulted from the topographical changes that occurred during and after the Flood.

Watermarks in old dried up lakes, old river terraces and ancient elevated shorelines found in different parts of the world testify to a watery event and deposition of layers.

All the mountains were covered. The tops of all the high mountains under the entire heavens were at least 20 feet beneath the waters surface (Genesis 7:19-20). It would be absurd to think that a flood covering the highest mountains of the Middle East would not affect the rest of the world. In addition, the waters remained at this awesome, mountain-covering height for five months! (Genesis 7:18-24, 8:1-5).

Genesis 7:11 Shows a Worldwide Volcanic Eruption

What really happened during the Flood has been a mystery. The biblical account and other ancient records do not shed much light on the Flood event. The reason is, the survivors of the Flood were shut up in the Ark for the entire period of the Flood. God never explained to Noah the details of the Flood. Noah recorded what he experienced while in the Ark. The Flood started with two major events (Gen. 7:11):

  • The fountains of the deep burst forth
  • The windows of heaven were opened

This latter event is connected with the 40 days and nights of rain from above. What about the first event? Apparently there were exploding noises from beneath the waters of the ocean. It would seem that water gushed forth from underneath the oceans from explosions. Any time volcanoes erupt, a lot of steam is given off along with other fumes. Did volcanoes erupt under the oceans?

Every fossil dig has volcanic ash in the strata. What does that mean? Global Volcanism. Think of the power of one event 20 years ago. The violent eruption of Mount St. Helens volcano in Washington State on May 18, 1980, produced a series of geologic surprises. At 8:32 a.m., an earthquake under the volcano shook the swollen and oversteepened north slope, dislodging a rockslide of more than one-half cubic mile of rock and ice. As the pressure was released by the departure of the rockslide, superheated water inside the volcano flashed to steam creating a twenty-megaton, northward-directed blast of hot gas and rock fragments. In six minutes the blast leveled 3.2 billion board feet of prime forest (enough lumber to build 640,000 houses) over an area in excess of 150 square miles. The nine-hour eruption, which followed, was one of the most photographed and studied volcanic events in history.

The truth is, something far more powerful than a few volcanic eruptions occurred. If you look closely the topographical map of the earth (see below), you will see a chain of mid-ocean ridges on the ocean floor connecting all oceans.

 

Geologists have recognized that these ridges are fracture lines on the earth’s crust. They have estimated some 200 million years ago the continents were joined together as one piece, and they have named this super continent Pangea.

The scientists are correct about the breakup of a super continent. But they are completely wrong about the dating of the event because they have used evolutionary dating.

The creationist view is that the breakup of the super continent happened some 5000 years ago, and was the main event of the Flood. The super continent that broke up was the Good Earth, which I described under Creation Mysteries.

How can we prove the breakup of the super continent took place just 5000 years ago? The main arguments are given below.

The breaking up of the Crust was an explosive event of unprecedented magnitude, considering the fact that the mid-ocean ridges extend some 40,000 miles. The broken parts did not just move at the rates we see today. The mantle rocks beneath the Crust were so hot that the broken plates could move without much friction for many hundreds of miles per hour initially. As the rocks cooled down, the movement began to slow down. It is this slowed down rate we are seeing today. We can assume an exponential decay in the rate at which the plates moved apart or moved against each other.

Genesis 7:12 Makes Us Ask, “Where Did the Flood Waters Come From?”

Most people assume the Floodwaters came from the 40 days of rain. The question is, was there that much water held up above to pour down and submerge all land mass including the mountains?

It has been estimated that if the atmosphere is water saturated, the total water content when condensed would not create more than 30 ft. Oceans are 71% of total surface area, more than enough to cover the earth 7,500 feet deep. Source of flood? Fountains of the great deep, 150-day breakup, great subterranean water.

Remember, the earth’s crust broke up at the start of the Flood? Huge eruptions under the oceans for thousands of miles literally boiled the ocean and released steam into the air along with volcanic ash. Immense tidal waves were also created. The steam and the ash that went up precipitated as rain for the entire period of the eruptions. All that are familiar with volcanic eruptions knows this phenomenon. There would be a cooling down of the earth’s atmosphere as well due to the blockage of sunlight.

The oceanic waters not only boiled off and gave the rain, but also swept across all landmass with such force that the soil and all the trees were uprooted into a muddy soup.

(These terms are explained on page 130.)

Immediately after the rupture, the salty, subterranean water began flowing horizontally toward the rupture. The tremendous pressure in the subterranean chamber accelerated the escaping water to high speeds, rapidly eroding the rock bounding the chamber and rupture. Thus the water expelled up through the rupture and into the atmosphere was filled with dirt fragments of various sizes. Likewise, frictional heating melted the first ice particles falling into the atmosphere.

Muddy rain, accompanied by high winds, fell first, forcing many different animals to higher ground. Some of these high burial grounds are now the Arctic islands containing dense concentrations of mammoth bones and ivory. Prey and predator sought protection from the greater common enemy—rising waters. Larger animals, such as mammoths and rhinoceroses, in rushing to higher ground, may have crushed and buried the smaller animals in warmer sediments. This may explain the antelope skull under the Berezovka mammoth.

Fine sediments in the muddy rain and ice mixed with the torn up surface vegetation and formed muck. This soupy mixture, along with ripped up forests, flowed into valleys and other low areas, smoothing the topography into flat, low plateaus. Later this muck froze, preserving to this day its distinguishing organic component and its loess like inorganic component.

Before the flood, the subterranean water was sealed off from the atmosphere and, therefore, probably contained no dissolved air. As “the fountains of the great deep” exploded up through the atmosphere, the rapid and steady evaporation from the rising liquid forced gases away from, rather than toward, each rising liquid particle. Thus, the water that froze above the atmosphere had no dissolved air but still had dissolved carbon dioxide. Both froze to become a mixture of water ice and frozen carbon dioxide, or “dry ice.” Remember Job describes frozen lakes, he was aware of the receding Ice Age. The ice ages followed the flood.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by Suffocation. Suffocation occurred in several ways: (a) physical burial by falling ice particles, (b) breathing too much carbon dioxide gas from evaporating “dry ice,” and (c) freezing lung tissue, thereby preventing the diffusion of oxygen into and carbon dioxide out of the lungs.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by Dirty Lungs. The extreme winds beginning at the time of the rupture created a gritty atmosphere for a few hours before the rain and ice reached Dima. This is why his entire digestive and respiratory tracts contained silt, clay, and small particles of gravel.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by -150°F. As the mass of “hail” fell into the atmosphere, it pushed forward and displaced large volumes of air, creating violent down drafts and additional surface winds. Larger, stronger animals, such as mammoths and rhinoceroses, best withstood the driving rain, wind, and cold as they sought safety. They were still standing as the colder hail began piling up at various places—hail whose temperature was about -150°F, corresponding to the temperature above the atmosphere. This “super cold” ice pressing against their bodies rapidly froze even their warm stomachs and internal organs.

Surviving evidence of the Flood shows death by Upright and Vertical Compression. The massive and violent hailstorm buried mammoths and rhinoceroses alive—many standing up and compressed from all sides. Babies were flattened. Exposed parts of adult bodies, unsupported by bone, were vertically flattened. Sometimes even strong bones were crushed by axial compression. Encasement in muddy ice maintained the alignment of Berezovka’s leg bone as it was crushed lengthwise.

Only the Flood can explain how the frozen animals were buried in muddy hail at the onset of the flood. During the following months, sedimentary layers and their fossils were deposited on top of this ice and sorted by liquefaction. Nor is there any known report of marine fossils, layered strata, limestone deposits, or coal seams directly beneath any frozen mammoth or rhinoceros remains. Tolmachoff, in his chapter on the geology of the Berezovka site, wrote “Marine shells or marine mammals have never been discovered in [deposits having frozen mammoths].” All the frozen mammoths and rhinoceroses seem to have died at the same time. However, the radiocarbon ages vary.

Who am I? (purpose), How did I get here? (origin) Where am I going? (destiny)

Manufacturer has issued in the Word of God, a total recall because of a missing part. Ignore the recall, and you go to the eternal dump that smolders with fire forever. Acknowledge and respond to the recall and you are invited to Christ’s Judgment seat, His awards banquet.

Because God designed you to never be duplicated, right down to your DNA you are one of a kind. What does God want me to be? What is His plan? God has a plan written down!

God sent a Universal Flood That Destroyed the Earth. How do we know? Biblical Evidences of a Global Flood

In addition, the waters remained at this awesome, mountain-covering height for five months! (Genesis 7:18-24, 8:1-5).

Genesis 7:11 Shows a Worldwide Volcanic Eruption

What really happened during the Flood has been a mystery. The biblical account and other ancient records do not shed much light on the Flood event. The reason is, the survivors of the Flood were shut up in the Ark for the entire period of the Flood. God never explained to Noah the details of the Flood. Noah recorded what he experienced while in the Ark. The Flood started with two major events (Gen. 7:11):

  • The fountains of the deep burst forth
  • The windows of heaven were opened

This latter event is connected with the 40 days and nights of rain from above. What about the first event? Apparently there were exploding noises from beneath the waters of the ocean. It would seem that water gushed forth from underneath the oceans from explosions. Any time volcanoes erupt, a lot of steam is given off along with other fumes. Did volcanoes erupt under the oceans?

Every fossil dig has volcanic ash in the strata. What does that mean? Global Volcanism. Think of the power of one event 20 years ago. The violent eruption of Mount St. Helens volcano in Washington State on May 18, 1980, produced a series of geologic surprises. At 8:32 a.m., an earthquake under the volcano shook the swollen and oversteepened north slope, dislodging a rockslide of more than one-half cubic mile of rock and ice. As the pressure was released by the departure of the rockslide, superheated water inside the volcano flashed to steam creating a twenty-megaton, northward-directed blast of hot gas and rock fragments. In six minutes the blast leveled 3.2 billion board feet of prime forest (enough lumber to build 640,000 houses) over an area in excess of 150 square miles. The nine-hour eruption, which followed, was one of the most photographed and studied volcanic events in history.

The truth is, something far more powerful than a few volcanic eruptions occurred. If you look closely the topographical map of the earth (see below), you will see a chain of mid-ocean ridges on the ocean floor connecting all oceans.

Geologists have recognized that these ridges are fracture lines on the earth’s crust. They have estimated some 200 million years ago the continents were joined together as one piece, and they have named this super continent Pangea.

The scientists are correct about the breakup of a super continent. But they are completely wrong about the dating of the event because they have used evolutionary dating.

The creationist view is that the breakup of the super continent happened some 5000 years ago, and was the main event of the Flood. The super continent that broke up was the Good Earth, which I described under Creation Mysteries.

How can we prove the breakup of the super continent took place just 5000 years ago? The main arguments are given below.

The breaking up of the Crust was an explosive event of unprecedented magnitude, considering the fact that the mid-ocean ridges extend some 40,000 miles. The broken parts did not just move at the rates we see today. The mantle rocks beneath the Crust were so hot that the broken plates could move without much friction for many hundreds of miles per hour initially. As the rocks cooled down, the movement began to slow down. It is this slowed down rate we are seeing today. We can assume an exponential decay in the rate at which the plates moved apart or moved against each other.

Genesis 7:12 Makes Us Ask, “Where Did the Flood Waters Come From?”

Most people assume the Floodwaters came from the 40 days of rain. The question is, was there that much water held up above to pour down and submerge all land mass including the mountains?

It has been estimated that if the atmosphere is water saturated, the total water content when condensed would not create more than 30 ft. Oceans are 71% of total surface area, more than enough to cover the earth 7,500 feet deep. Source of flood? Fountains of the great deep, 150-day breakup, great subterranean water.

Remember, the earth’s crust broke up at the start of the Flood? Huge eruptions under the oceans for thousands of miles literally boiled the ocean and released steam into the air along with volcanic ash. Immense tidal waves were also created. The steam and the ash that went up precipitated as rain for the entire period of the eruptions. All that are familiar with volcanic eruptions knows this phenomenon. There would be a cooling down of the earth’s atmosphere as well due to the blockage of sunlight.

The oceanic waters not only boiled off and gave the rain, but also swept across all landmass with such force that the soil and all the trees were uprooted into a muddy soup.

(These terms are explained on page 130.)

Immediately after the rupture, the salty, subterranean water began flowing horizontally toward the rupture. The tremendous pressure in the subterranean chamber accelerated the escaping water to high speeds, rapidly eroding the rock bounding the chamber and rupture. Thus the water expelled up through the rupture and into the atmosphere was filled with dirt fragments of various sizes. Likewise, frictional heating melted the first ice particles falling into the atmosphere.

Muddy rain, accompanied by high winds, fell first, forcing many different animals to higher ground. Some of these high burial grounds are now the Arctic islands containing dense concentrations of mammoth bones and ivory. Prey and predator sought protection from the greater common enemy—rising waters. Larger animals, such as mammoths and rhinoceroses, in rushing to higher ground, may have crushed and buried the smaller animals in warmer sediments. This may explain the antelope skull under the Berezovka mammoth.

Fine sediments in the muddy rain and ice mixed with the torn up surface vegetation and formed muck. This soupy mixture, along with ripped up forests, flowed into valleys and other low areas, smoothing the topography into flat, low plateaus. Later this muck froze, preserving to this day its distinguishing organic component and its loess like inorganic component.

Before the flood, the subterranean water was sealed off from the atmosphere and, therefore, probably contained no dissolved air. As “the fountains of the great deep” exploded up through the atmosphere, the rapid and steady evaporation from the rising liquid forced gases away from, rather than toward, each rising liquid particle. Thus, the water that froze above the atmosphere had no dissolved air but still had dissolved carbon dioxide. Both froze to become a mixture of water ice and frozen carbon dioxide, or “dry ice.” Remember Job describes frozen lakes, he was aware of the receding Ice Age. The ice ages followed the flood.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by Suffocation. Suffocation occurred in several ways: (a) physical burial by falling ice particles, (b) breathing too much carbon dioxide gas from evaporating “dry ice,” and (c) freezing lung tissue, thereby preventing the diffusion of oxygen into and carbon dioxide out of the lungs.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by Dirty Lungs. The extreme winds beginning at the time of the rupture created a gritty atmosphere for a few hours before the rain and ice reached Dima. This is why his entire digestive and respiratory tracts contained silt, clay, and small particles of gravel.

Evidence of Noah’s Flood in seen in Mammoth deaths by -150°F. As the mass of “hail” fell into the atmosphere, it pushed forward and displaced large volumes of air, creating violent down drafts and additional surface winds. Larger, stronger animals, such as mammoths and rhinoceroses, best withstood the driving rain, wind, and cold as they sought safety. They were still standing as the colder hail began piling up at various places—hail whose temperature was about -150°F, corresponding to the temperature above the atmosphere. This “super cold” ice pressing against their bodies rapidly froze even their warm stomachs and internal organs.

Surviving evidence of the Flood shows death by Upright and Vertical Compression. The massive and violent hailstorm buried mammoths and rhinoceroses alive—many standing up and compressed from all sides. Babies were flattened. Exposed parts of adult bodies, unsupported by bone, were vertically flattened. Sometimes even strong bones were crushed by axial compression. Encasement in muddy ice maintained the alignment of Berezovka’s leg bone as it was crushed lengthwise.

Only the Flood can explain how the frozen animals were buried in muddy hail at the onset of the flood. During the following months, sedimentary layers and their fossils were deposited on top of this ice and sorted by liquefaction. Nor is there any known report of marine fossils, layered strata, limestone deposits, or coal seams directly beneath any frozen mammoth or rhinoceros remains. Tolmachoff, in his chapter on the geology of the Berezovka site, wrote “Marine shells or marine mammals have never been discovered in [deposits having frozen mammoths].” All the frozen mammoths and rhinoceroses seem to have died at the same time. However, the radiocarbon ages vary.

Who am I? (purpose), How did I get here? (origin) Where am I going? (destiny)

Manufacturer has issued in the Word of God, a total recall because of a missing part. Ignore the recall, and you go to the eternal dump that smolders with fire forever. Acknowledge and respond to the recall and you are invited to Christ’s Judgment seat, His awards banquet.

Because God designed you to never be duplicated, right down to your DNA you are one of a kind. What does God want me to be? What is His plan? God has a plan written down!

See Table 2: on page 121 . For an explanation of radiocarbon dating and its assumptions, see page 165 . Those pages explain why 40,000 radiocarbon years (RCY) is a typical radiocarbon age for most frozen remains, and why 40,000 radiocarbon years probably correspond to about 5,000 actual years. A slight amount of contamination of the remains, for example by ground water, would lower their radiocarbon age considerably, especially something living before or soon after the flood. This probably explains why different parts of the first Vollosovitch mammoth had widely varying radiocarbon ages—29,500 and 44,000 RCY. One part of Dima was 40,000 RCY, another was 26,000 RCY, and the “wood found immediately around the carcass” was 9,000 – 10,000 RCY. The lower leg of the Fairbanks Creek mammoth had a radiocarbon age of 15,380 RCY, while its skin and flesh were 21,300 RCY. 143 The two Colorado Creek mammoths had radiocarbon ages of 22,850 ± 670 and 16,150 ± 230 years respectively. Since a bone fragment at one burial site fit precisely with a bone at the other site 30 feet away, and the soil had undergone considerable compression and movement, it seems likely they died simultaneously. PREDICTION 13: Blind radiocarbon dating of different parts of the same mammoth will continue to give radiocarbon ages that differ by more than statistical variations would reasonably permit. ( See page 72 for an explanation of blind testing.) Contamination by ground water will be most easily seen if the samples came from widely separated parts of the mammoth’s body with different water absorbing characteristics.
