The fossil record has long been considered to be "the greatest proof for evolution", because it supposedly shows evolution happening the way that we see it on the evolutionary geologic time chart. We see smaller, simpler creatures in the lower rock layers and larger, more "evolved" creatures in the upper rock layers, which is what you would expect to find if evolution were true. However, there is another explanation for the fossil record which does not require evolution or millions of years. For this explanation, we will go to the Bible for answers.

The Great Flood of Noah's day can account for all of the features we find in fossils, but why is it that we find all the fossils in the exact order of the geologic time chart? The simple answer is that we don't. There is not a single place on earth in which we can find all the layers of strata shown on the geologic time chart, and in the order shown on the chart. Even the Grand Canyon has 150 million years of the fossil record missing from its rock layers! The reason we find certain creatures always buried together is because they lived together in the same ecosystem. This can also explain the reason why we don't find dinosaur fossils buried alongside human fossils; because dinosaurs and humans lived in drastically different environments. However, in some cases, such as Dinosaur National Monument and other fossil graveyards, we find lots of different ecosystems jumbled up together, which is a puzzle for evolutionists, but works perfectly with the creationist's Flood model.

So know you know that the fossil record is a much better friend to the creationist worldview than to the evolutionary worldview.
