(1) In late 2007, John Mackay and Randall Hardy visited an abandoned limestone quarry in rural Wales, UK (above right). The rock layers were full of sea shells and corals and were labelled Carboniferous.
(2) The sequence was also remarkably similar to the Bangor limestone in eastern Tennessee USA, where we have been finding fossil land plants mixed with seashells. The Bangor Limestone USA, was named after Bangor in Wales and is also labelled Carboniferous.

(3) So we began looking for a fossil plant layer and within a few hours we'd found the right layers and look what began to emerge.
(4) Fossil Brachiopod shells and coral above are mixed with Y-shaped plant structures and a very obvious carnbonized horse tail rush stem below (5) & (6), beside a fossil coral.

(7) During April 2008, Creation Research Geologists Bob Powell above and John Mackay found a new batch of similar fossilized land plants and sea shells together in the Tennessee Carboniferous, nearly 5000 kilometres (3000 miles) west of the quarry in Wales.

(8) The fossils were found in the St. Louis Limestone and are clearly rushes with brachiopods.

More details on these Tennessee finds click Fossil First USA.

(9) As we have reported before - we are not the first to paint out this unbelievable HUGE size and almost unbelievable similarity of rock type (FACIES), their fossil content and mode of deposition, of certain layers or strata in the Geological record. Evolutionist Geology Professor Derek Ager pp.6-7, in his book "The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record" Wiley, New York, 1973, states about these same Carboniferous beds we have been working on in the USA and UK , also showing up in other countries:
(10) "...we still have to account for a general facies development in late Carboniferous times that extends in essentially the same form all the way from Texas to the Donetz coal basin, north of the Caspian Sea in the U.S.S.R. This amounts to some 170º of longitude, and closing up the Atlantic by a mere 40º does not really help all that much in explaining the remarkable phenomenon." The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record, pp.6-7. His chapter on the "The Persistence of Facies" is really worth a read.

(11) Very obvious winged Brachiopod shell at right is mixed with intriuging land plant reproductive structure shown below in more detail.

(12) Ager the evolutionist never did come up with an explanation of such vast beds, since modern geology is based on the premise there are two things you must exclude - Creation and Noah’s flood. The identification of the sea shells as brachiopods, and the land plants as horsetail rushes is based on the fact that such creatures are still here and thus have reproduced after their kind (a creation result); and the mixing of land and sea creatures on a huge scale is definitely a flood based phenomenon.

(13) Thank you for your gifts which enable us to do this research as well as use it in Schools, universities and churches around the globe to defend the scriptures, expose evolution for the deception it is, and to promote the Gospel of Christ the Creator.
