Formation of Coral Reefs

Posted by on Dec 22, 2009 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

It has been argued that ancient petrified coral reefs, such as El Capitan Reef in New Mexico, would have taken a tremendous time to have formed -proving that the earth is very old. This could be a valid point; assuming corals grew in the past at the same rate as it does today (which is doubtful) and assuming El Capitan corals grew in situ (i.e. in place). Research has shown that El Capitan is not an ancient coral reef of in situ coral. Instead it is a mound of broken pieces of coral that apparently were washed in and piled up. This could result from major water currents acting in a short period of time during the Flood.
