You’ve been a Darwinist sinner all your life, dear reader, but that will surely end after you read what we found today from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
He just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Squid Was Fossilized Catching Its Dinner. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
We have an incredible fossil here at the Creation Museum that guests can see in one of our excellent exhibits. It’s a fossil of a fish halfway through swallowing another fish, which was supposed to be its dinner! [Hambo includes a picture of what seems to be that fossil.] This fossil clearly points to catastrophic burial — the fish didn’t even have time to finish swallowing its prey before it was rapidly buried.
Or maybe it choked, or maybe the fish it was swallowing was poisonous, or … who knows? Hambo says:
Well, a fossil discovered [link omitted] off the coast of England tells a similar story. [Wowie — another catastrophic burial!] A squid-like creature, called a belemnoid, with “ten arms covered with hooks,” was fossilized with a fish that had been viciously killed, presumably for the belemnoid’s dinner. But it never got to eat the fish; instead, it was catastrophically buried.
PhysOrg has an article on that: Fossil reveals evidence of 200-million-year-old ‘squid’ attack. For some reason, it doesn’t mention the Flood. Anyway, Hambo tells us:
This “most unusual, if not extraordinary fossil” is a puzzle for evolutionists. How could it be so remarkably preserved? The lead author of the study, Malcom Hart, offers a possible explanation:
[Hambo gives us a quote:] It’s possible that the fish was too big for the squid relative, or that it became stuck in the predator’s jaws. This could have killed the squid, which would have sunk to the seafloor with its last meal and undergone fossilization.
It’s possible. PhysOrg offers another quote from the lead author:
It points to a particularly violent attack which ultimately appears to have caused the death, and subsequent preservation, of both animals.
PhysOrg has other explanations too, including:
… they suggest that the fish was too large for its attacker or became stuck in its jaws so that the pair — already dead — settled to the seafloor where they were preserved.
But for Hambo, there’s only one explanation. Can you guess what it is? He ends his article with it:
Well, I submit there’s a possibility the author never mentioned because they start with the wrong starting point (evolution and millions of years). [The fools!] There was a catastrophic global flood that rapidly buried billions of creatures, including this belemnoid, in sedimentary layers, preserving many of them in incredible detail. If these researchers would start with God’s Word, this “mystery” would be solved.
Why don’t those scientists listen to Hambo? He always has the answers.
