Well, let your mind go wild on
A DESPERATE DASH TO SAFETY
Can you just imagine it! The terror-stricken dash by man and animal alike to reach safety - only to be sucked under by the relentless force of advancing waters. The agonised cries of drowning men and beasts piercing the air.
Gripped by the same terror, wild beasts and tame struggle together to higher grounds.
Some of the people bind their children and themselves upon powerful animals, knowing that these will climb to the highest peaks to escape the rising waters.
Some fasten themselves to tall trees on the hills or mountains, but the trees are uprooted and hurled into the billows.
As the waters rise higher, the people flee for refuge to the loftiest heights.
In amphitheatres in the hills, they find themselves trapped. In great numbers they throng together, pushing into caves, swarming over the ground in front.
Until the waters rise and cover them.
Strong animals, without a sign of degeneration, come to an end.
Yes, worldwide, the traditions of the human race recount this terrifying disaster.
They recall that it was accompanied by enormous universal rains, violent waterspouts, earthquakes and hurricane winds.
THE FIT DO NOT SURVIVE
This is not the survival of the fittest. Fit and unfit, and mostly fit, old and young with sharp teeth, with strong muscles, with fleet legs, with plenty of food around, all perish.
The earth is even at this moment convulsing, opening up fissures to swallow many of them, as they collect on the tops of these hills. Then the huge waves smash over them large rocks and debris, until their bones are crushed and smashed.
Here, often thousands of feet up, they are washed into crevices and held tight.
WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN'T TELL YOU
There is a most crucial circumstance concerning the earth's strata and the fossils that is not generally disclosed to the public, and which many geologists apparently do not recognise.
On every continent, and in numerous places on each, are vast "fossil graveyards", where
masses of flora and fauna have been swept to a sudden death in their millions.
These areas are often packed with both land and sea creatures from different habitats and even different climatic zones - all mixed and buried together in a completely unnatural way.
There is evidence that a great disaster took place, in which creatures of all types perished together - mostly fit, young and old, with fleet legs, strong muscles and sharp teeth.
And with plenty of food around. Artifacts of man are found among them.
They all died together, suddenly and violently, high up on hills and mountains.
What did it?
Come with me on a global tour. You'll see what I mean.
In France, numerous clefts crammed to overflowing with animal bones have been found. Along with them are human remains.
One could mention Mount Genay, near Semur in Burgundy - 1,430 feet high.
Here, capped by a breccia (a cemented mass of stone fragments), is a fissure filled with mixed bones of numerous animals.
Near Chalon-sur-Saone, between Dijon and Lyons, stands an isolated hill, flat-topped Mont de Sautenay.
It rises 1,030 feet above the plain. Near the summit is a fissure crammed with bones. The bones are unweathered and un-gnawed.
I ask you, Why should so many wolves, bears, horses and oxen have ascended a hill isolated
on all sides?
These broken and splintered bones are evidently not those of animals devoured by
beasts of prey; nor have they been broken by man.
The state of preservation of the bones indicates that the animals perished in the
same period of time.
It appears that all these animals had fled there to escape rising waters.
Caves and fissures on the Cote d'Azur have yielded mixed land and sea remains - bones of lions, rhinoceros, hyenas, macao monkeys, elephants and whales. All together.
In Britain (for example, Yorkshire, Plymouth, Devonshire and Wales) and Eire, are similar mixtures.
What could have brought, together in quick succession, all these animals and plants, from the tundra of the Arctic Circle and from the jungle of the tropics. from lands of many latitudes and altitudes, from freshwater lakes and rivers, and from the salt seas of the north and south?
There is evidence of submersion to a depth of not less than about 1,000 feet.
In Germany, coal beds contain a complete mixture of plants, insects and animals from all climatic zones. Their muscles and skin are perfectly preserved.
Although leaves are preserved in fresh condition (retaining their fine fibre and green colour) and insects their membranes and colours perfectly preserved, ALL ARE VIOLENTLY TORN INTO PIECES.
Were they carried there by onrushing water - from all parts of the world???
Numerous crevices down to 290 feet deep on the Rock of Gibraltar are filled with bones of the wolf, bear, lynx, hare, ibex, rabbit, horse, panther, rhinoceros, ox, wild boar, deer and other animals.
The bones are neither worn, rolled, nor gnawed. They are splintered and broken. And
found together with land and marine shells - as well as coral.
Tell me, what but a great and common danger, such as a colossal flood, could have driven together the animals of the plains and of the crags and caves?
A handful of bone samples still in the Natural History Museum in London confirm their "freshness", indicating that they had been entombed with the flesh still on them - and not eaten by predators.
These show a consistently unrolled and fresh appearance. Flood, not glacial action, is indicated.
We could cite similar evidence from Sicily - where bones of hippopotamus, deer, ox and elephant were mixed together in wild confusion, again without sign of weathering or gnawing.
The fact that bones of animals of all ages were piled together, indicates that the catastrophe was SUDDEN.
On the island of Malta are caves crammed full of hares, lemurs, tigers, rhinoceros, elephants - and birds.
Giant swans (twice as large as any swans now on earth) and huge sea birds are crammed in with the animals.
Now Malta is an island 170 miles (270 km) from the nearest other land (Sicily).
And please note, these birds are sea birds.
Had this been a mere local flood, these giant swans would have taken off for Sicily and been there in half an hour.
These sea birds would never have been drowned - they're sea birds! So what happened?
You've guessed it! These birds kept flying until they could fly no more!!!
The same mixture of LAND animals and SEA shells is found in caves and fissures from Western Europe to Russia - and in Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon and elsewhere.
The bones are broken into innumerable fragments. They are still "fresh".
Artefacts of man are found among them. Fissures are in rocks on top of isolated hills.
Often, birds and animals are MIXED TOGETHER WITH trees and vegetation.
QUESTION: "COULD THEY HAVE FALLEN IN ALIVE, OR BEEN BURIED THERE"
The answer is no, for there are no complete skeletons.
QUESTION: "COULD THEY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT THERE BY STREAMS?"
Again, no, for there are no signs of them having been rolled.
QUESTION: "COULD THEY HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED BY RUTHLESS MEN?"
No, there could have been no way to bury them in such numbers before other animals gnawed
them or the weather affected them.
Considering the number of the remains found, thrown together in great heaps, mixed in great confusion, large and small animals, grass-eating and flesh-eating animals and birds, all in one pile, buried in alluvial deposits, intermingled with remains of plants and trees, seashells and fish, such an idea becomes absurd.
QUESTION: "DID SOME DISEASE STRIKE THEM DOWN?"
All animals at the same time and in every part of the world? Land animals and deep sea creatures, all mixed together? Of course not.
Certainly animals stricken by sudden disease would be too weak to ascend to the hilltops!
The bones could not have been exposed to weather for long, for none of them shows marks of weathering.
That water deposited them is indicated by the very general cementing together of the bones by calcite.
Moreover, these bone-filled chasms are usually found on isolated hills of considerable height - places on which we might expect animals to gather in seeking safety from an approaching flood.
This scene is enacted on hundreds of thousands of hills in every part of the earth.
While panicked men, women and animals were rushing to the highest points in Europe, the
very same scene was being enacted ALL OVER THE WORLD.
From North America (California, Maryland, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and
Canada, for example), the story is the same.
Human remains are mixed chaotically with those of land and sea animals - just as in South America, Australia, Africa, Siberia, India, China, Korea, Burma. In fact, all over Asia.
WHAT COULD DO THIS, BUT WATER?
Clearly, nothing but a flood would have driven such strange mixtures of animals - animals that don't normally live together - into caves and crevices in all parts of the world. And buried them together.
The evidence everywhere strongly suggests that they were drowned en masse by violent
water action. This bone-cave phenomenon is of world-wide extent.
Was this a global Flood? Of course it was.
Here is a fact of utmost importance: Creatures of every kind died in great
numbers and were buried almost instantly.
Each of these animals, by the unbelievable uniformitarian explanation, fell into their
graveyards by accident - one at a time!
However, the facts reveal not normal, slow processes, but unusual transportation and
rapid burial mechanisms.
DINOSAURS LIKEWISE DROWNED
Yes, big as they were, dinosaurs suffered the same watery fate - followed by rapid burial.
This is evidence that some scientists prefer to ignore.
Great dinosaur beds have been excavated in Alberta, Belgium, New Mexico, Tanzania,
Spitzbergen and many other places.
All over the world, paleontologists have found caches of fossilized dinosaurs that were buried instantly in a catastrophic movement of water.
Fascinating, don't you think?
And yet, we have hardly scratched the surface. If you would like to discover more, here's where you can go:
International explorer, archaeologist and author Jonathan Gray has traveled the world to gather
data on ancient mysteries. He has penetrated some largely unexplored areas, including parts of the Amazon headwaters. The author has also led expeditions to the bottom of the sea and to remote mountain and desert regions of the world. He lectures internationally.
