Snail Fossils, excitement!

According to Wayne Propst, he was replacing soil in his aunt Sharon Givan’s yard when he made the amazing discovery of the fossilized snail shells which he believes date back to the time of Noah’s flood.

Seeking to verify the veracity of his claim, Propst contacted self-proclaimed fossil expert Joe Taylor who stated that the fossils indeed are a remnant of the Biblical flood that covered the Earth due to God’s wrath.

It’s nice, seeing someone interested in fossils, but jumping right to OMG NOAH!, and adding a non-professional verification? Oh my. This is more of a confirmation slam than bias.

Although Taylor has yet to study the fossils — or even lay eyes on them in person — he believes that they are a sign of the flood in the dry East Texas town and called the discovery “rare.”

“I’ve never heard of anything about that from over there, I’m surprised he found it there,” Taylor explained.

That is just so sad, such a complete lack of knowledge about natural science, the history of our lovely planet.

“Now all I got to do is go in front of my aunt’s house and pick up something from back when it all began. I don’t even have to search anymore,” said Probst, adding, ” Who else can say they have a front yard full of Noah’s dirt?”

Um…all of us? Except that it has nothing to do with a biblical character.

Propst’s aunt Sharon agreed, saying: “To think that like he says that we have something in our yard that dated back to when God destroyed the earth. I mean, how much better could anything be?”

Oh yeah, the earth being destroyed, that’s fantastic! Maybe he’ll do it again, and we’ll get to see this time! Oh my.
