Fossil Butte

Perfectly preserved fossilized fish found in the layers at the Fossil Butte National Monument indicate rapid burial of creatures rather than slow burial over millions of years. Fish are preserved without a fin out of place. The burial was so fast that one fish was trapped in the sediment while trying to eat his lunch. It had another fish in its mouth. Another fish was found squashed flat from top to bottom in swimming position as it tried to escape the weight of sediment on top of it. One fossil slab had 360 fish perfectly preserved in it. This type of mass mortality shows rapid burial consistent with the Biblical Flood and its aftermaths.
