Whale Fossils Discovered High Up In Andes Mountains

I wonder how atheists here will explain-away the fossils of whales in the Andes and other mountain peaks? Its not enough to mention how marine fossils are found in every mountain peak in the world, but there are whale fossils also found at the peaks! Doesn't think logically prove the Flood?

Easy. The mountain peaks were ocean floor before tectonic plates collided. One was pushed down and the other was pushed up.

Want to talk carbon 14?

It doesn’t come close to proving the flood.

First of all they weren’t found at “the peak” they were found at about 130 feet above sea level. Technically it was in the Andes but at an elevation that doesn’t even constitute a sizable hill, let alone mountain peak.

All it proves is that where they were found was at one time under water. And that is explained, as RNG pointed out, by tectonic motion.

Are whale fossils ever found in subduction zones? That would be the real poser.

That is laughable :lol: Carbon 14 has nothing to do with this issue. But nobody can carbon date anything past 3000 years, and even then you would need a core sample of something known of that time to check the date with. Also, whether you accept the Flood or the K-T event, the carbon balance would have been greatly upset and we would not receive any accurate dates from those times. That is a no brainer.

Back to the subject. So you are trying to tell me that while a whale was swimming an uplift came up and pushed the whale out of the water and then this whale became a fossil? Maybe you are saying that when a whale dies it becomes a fossil?

Look, whales do not become fossils when they die. There is also zero evidence to suggest that the mountain ranges we see today were lower than sea level in the past. Now I do agree that the geography of the planet has change a lot and what was once landmass is not water. But this silly and absurd idea that whale falls produce fossils is not scientific. Fossilization is a rare process and requires special conditions in order for it to happen.

So we find whale fossils in the Andes and Himalayas, and, recently in the California mountains. Who knows how many more mountains contain ancient whale fossils.

Not really. For example, the subduction zone below the N. American Rocky Mountains were ocean bottom too.

Whales are being found in several mountains. You claim the mountains were all under water at one time but water happens to be a very big problem for evolutionists. They say comets brought water to the earth :lol: And you believe this?

Every nation of ancient antiquity has a Flood account. The marine fossils, along with giant whales, discovered on mountain peaks is proof for the global Flood.

And oh, by the way, evolutionists are now accepting a near global flood that goes along with the asteroid extinction theory. Why? Because evolutionists know that without a whole lotta water they cannot explain why there is such a massive fossil record. For firestorms do not create fossils. Only the erosive force of water can create sedimentary rock in which most all fossils are found in. From dinosaurs and other reptiles, to birds and marine life; from mammals and insects to our human selves--indeed, that the fossil record we see discover in sedimentary rock was made possible by water and not firestorms from asteroids.

Had an asteroid big enough to wipe out the dinosaurs hit the earth then water would not exist on the earth.

Here is a sample of what it would be like if a large asteroid hit the earth today.

Here is another program that starts out showing an asteroid hitting the earth 65.m.y.a. which results in the same conclusion as the above video and many other videos like it.

Here is another video showing the same results.

So, going back to our discussion about water. We know that water would have been scorched and boiled away from the earth, evaporated for lack of a better word. There would have been no clouds left in reality since the temperatures would have been too hot to sustain water in the clouds. Noxious gas clouds would be all the cover what was once an atmosphere. Earth today would be much like Mars is today with next to nothing for an atmosphere and a planet that is dead forever.

How did feathered birds survive the K-T event? They would have also all died out. So what survived? What could survive such a global disaster?

The easy answer is found in Genesis with the global Flood. This Flood left behind a fossil record buried in sedimentary rock just as the whales discovered in various mountain ranges. Whales do not just magically turn into fossils when they die. The remains of the whale soon parish and nothing is left of the whale.

You are making jesus cry again.

What evolutionists say comets brought water to the earth?

What evolutionist are now saying a near global flood happened?

Your claim that a comet strike sufficient to kill off the dinosaurs would be enough to blow all the water off the world is just plain wrong.

And in one of your early posts on this forum you said you had a good foundation in science?
