Sharks Part 2

Sharks Part Two….

Ok, carrying on, the eye exam was not as bad as it usually is

…to quickly summarize, we are still working within the premise that God created ALL of the sea creatures on day 5 as stated in scripture, including all the different “shark kinds”… more or less all swimming around at the same time ( but remember, since Creation, “micro-evolution” [ limited change within a species ] has no doubt created variations of the original shark kinds created by God ) Ok….

So all of the above “prehistoric” sharks types have this incredle weirdness to them right? Weird fins, heads, bodies, teeth etc… they “appear” like they are right out of ancient past…

Like this guy: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helicoprion who had what seems the weirdest teeth I have ever seen!

Looks like it makes sense right? Today’s sharks are so much more “normal looking” right? Like this Mako

Here’s the rub.

There are many “weird”, “ancient” & “prehistoric” looking sharks alive today.

Here’s a few: Behold the living fossil “Frilled Shark”

They look awful weird, old and ancient don’t they ? They are not. The Living fossil is the key.

Whats the the difference between all these sharks? Nothing!

We lost lots of “sharks” in the great flood, but some survived.

The only thing that is different is the PERSPECTIVE.

Imagine for for a second I took you to a cabin in the wild north when you were a baby and when you were 10 I showed you this picture. What would you think? What a wild shark!

It has a head like someone stepped on his head! How weird! You’ve be desensitized to the shapes. All these sharks lived with Adam.

We need to realine our perspective to correctly see sharks; the order we find them in the fossil record is the order they were buried during the flood.

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures and let birds fly above the earth and the open expanse of the heavens.” And God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. And God saw that it was good and God blessed them saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters and the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day.

 

Just for fun…!

Keep this post ^^ in mind. The same thing can be said for many groups/kinds of creatures alive today.

Living fossils today. >>> https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_fossil

Bacteria

Protists

Plants (trees)

Fungi

Animals

Birds

Reptiles

Amphibians

Jawless fish

Bony fish

Sharks

Invertebrates

Many creatures did not survive Noah’s flood, or the aftermath. Some did, even still to today.

 

Prehistoric Sharks Part 1

This is what you have been told right? That they look “old” “ancient” and “weird”, down right, “prehistoric”

Image result for prehistoric sharks

Well, what if I told you a new way to see the same creatures that agrees perfectly with Genesis?

Genesis tell us this about sharks.

The Fifth Day: Fish and Birds
20Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” 21God created the great seamonsters and every living creature that moves,with which the waters swarmed after their kind,and every winged bird after its kind; and Godsaw that it was good. 22
God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

Many years later this happened:

Noah Builds the Ark

12God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13Then God said to Noah,“The end of all flesh has comebefore Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. 14“Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch.…

So, one could look at Genesis, hypothetically speaking, and imagine that God created everything very quickly, in just six days. Just as the text says. Suddenly, like water into wine. Suddenly like healing a cripple. Essentially, *poof* seas bursting with life of all unimaginable kinds of creatures.

Now imagine this new sea teeming with many KINDS of sharks, (still working from the premise that God created ALL the KINDS of sharks on day 5. Ok?)

Now as we saw summed up in post #783 we see there was a great die off on the planet. No kinds of creatures seemed to be immune from this disaster.

Found this here : http://evoluion.about.com/od/LifeOrigins/fl/The-Great-Dying-Explained.htm

>>>It is the worst mass extinctionever known in the history of the Earth. About 250 million years ago, an event that scientists call the “Great Dying” occurred. This horrible event that ended the Paleozoic Era and ushered in the Mesozoic Era on the Geologic Time Scale, wiped out nearly 96% of all species alive at the time. This mass extinction happened relatively quickly in the scope of the history of the Earth, as it only took about 60,000 for the mass extinction to be complete<<<

Umm sure sounds like this could be a massive global flood with the wrong time scale. Just saying.

Many species & kinds of creatures were wiped out for good. Sharks were no different. There population got hammered (pun intended ) during the flood. Many species got caught in the raging waters and were swiftly buried and became fossils. We today, call these sharks “prehistoric”, may I propose that they are not.

They are simply the species that have died out over the millennia; many [ most ] no doubt could not survive the year long flood or the oceans after the flood.

Think this sounds crazy?

Wait, don’t decide yet… there is more to the story.

See next post for conclusion.

The Great Dying

Doing a little reading on sharks tonight for an upcoming post

Stumbled on this statement from here http://sharkopedia.discovery.com/sha…storic-sharks/

>>>About 250 million years ago, life on Earth was flourishing … and then suddenly, what came to be known as the “Great Dying” occurred, wiping out roughly nine in 10 marine species and seven in 10 land species. Plants, insects, microbes, proto-mammals, fish — nothing was spared. While the cause is of the event is still unknown (although scientists think it was likely due to volcanic activity or climate change), what’s much more certain is that life on Earth nearly came to an END.<<

Ummm…what’s this sound like? [ a flood maybe? ] Things that make you go

From the same web site ( Discovery- Shark Week ) we find this little jewel of data on how we find shark fossils. To be honest I was shocked to read such a silly and clearly illogical statement, especially from a “mainstream” source, but I suppose it really should not surprise me.

What makes more sense to you? These sharks were RAPIDLY buried is a slurry of sediment, thus leaving an “impression” in the rock, or ( my emphasis )

>>>HOW DO EXPERTS KNOW ABOUT PREHISTORIC SHARKS?

Paleontologists study fossilized bones to learn how creatures evolved. But sharks don’t have bones; they have cartilage, which dissolves quickly in ocean water. Luckily, after some sharks died, their bodies lay on rocks, leaving a fossilized impression on the rocks. Studying these gives good clues about shark evolution.<<<

WOW!

Strong Delusion

Here’s a interesting example of how evolutionists might be under strong delusion. ( 2 Thess 2:11)

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/…heir-skeletons

 

Cloudina fossils

Specimens of Cloudina, which, known from sites around the world, is one of the earliest skeletal animals

How did animals get their skeletons?
>>>>Animals with skeletons did not exist before about 550 million years ago. Then, scientists have proposed, atmospheric oxygen levels rose and the chemistry of the oceans changed in such a way that animals could harness the minerals required to build hard structural parts. A new analysis of ancient rock layers in Siberia provides support for this idea, showing that the oceans became rich in skeletal building blocks around the same time the first fossils of animals with skeletons start to appear. <<<<<

We could not be further apart I fear.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. 25God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

Perhaps he did this the same way he made the fish in matt 14 Instantly ?

15 When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and the hour is already [c]late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!” 17 They *said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” 18 And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Ordering the [d]people to [e]sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, 20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.

Or perhaps as he made the wine Instantly ?

John 2 Jesus *said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” So they filled them up to the brim. 8 And He *said to them, “Draw some out now and take it to the [c]headwaiter.” So they took it to him. 9 When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter *called the bridegroom, 10 and *said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have [d]drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This beginning of His [e]signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee,

Same way Jesus cured many ?

Instantly?

Soft Tissue Dinosaur Research Institute

A little more of mark and his ( hopefully soon ) “Soft Tissue Dinosaur Research Institute.”

https://youtu.be/lTY3v8n9aBE

 

Here’s an interesting video ( it’s a bit choppy and fast paced, ready your pause button ) with a bit more information about the now raging debate now surrounding the soft tissue discoveries. Of course EV’s could not sit back and let these discoveries be what they actually are -proof that “dinosaurs” lived and walked the earth not long ago. No, heaven forbid.

They have instead come up with elaborate explanations to explain away the soft tissue ( which are farcical at best, but I do give credit for trying, after all, their worldview must be protected at all costs )

When one factors in all the other evidence that man walked with dinaours, the legends, carvings, living fossil evidence, Biblical suppport etc.. the most logical position is that these creatures walked with Adam.

Seeing the Evidence Differently

Strange Ancient Fish Had Front And Back Legs

Scientists investigated fossils of a 375-million-year-old fish known as Tiktaalik roseae, discovered in 2004 in northern Canada’s Ellesmere Island, finding they may have evolved rear legs before moving to land.

>>>The closest known relative of the ancestors of limbed animals such as humans likely evolved the foundation for rear legs even before the move to land, researchers say. This ancestor may have even been able to walk underwater, they added. <<<<

http://www.livescience.com/42525-ear…rear-legs.html

Perhaps instead of “seeing” [ interpreting ] an early ansestor of man, perhaps all we see in these fossils are now extinct creatures, some of which, are interestingly, still alive today!
