All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 TIMOTHY 3:13, 17, NIV
When I was a kid, I enjoyed digging holes. I’m sure my dad didn’t appreciate it when I dug holes in the yard, but I was always fascinated with what I might find. Maybe a treasure chest? Gold and silver? Ancient scrolls and maps? I never found any of those things in my yard, but after I grew up I got to go on a special dig in Wyoming-we were digging for dinosaur bones!
The dig site is in a very remote part of Wyoming that required me to ride dozens of miles on dirt roads, passing countless cow fences and rolling hills. When I reached the dig site, I talked to the leaders and soon found myself at one of the quarries where people from all over the country had come to dig up dinosaur bones. The exciting part about this dig was that the bones were in what we called a “graded bed.” That means larger bones were toward the bottom of the layer, medium bones in the middle, and smaller bones were at the top of the layer. This is exciting because this means that hundreds of these creatures were killed in a water-related event, and then their bodies were washed to this spot as a big jumble mess until all their bones settled to the bottom in order from small to large.
In Genesis, The BIBLE talks about a giant global flood that killed millions of living things on our planet. In Wyoming I saw how thousands of creatures were killed by a huge water catastrophe and how their bodies were buried in that place.
Nature provides a lot of evidence that a global flood once ravaged our planet. It builds my faith to know that nature and science confirm the historical accounts we read about in the Bible.
