Many things can cause quick burial, from earthquakes and volcanoes to other animals. There have also been THOUSANDS of floods; not just one big one. Petrification of wood has nothing to do with other forms of fossilization, and it doesn't happen in 40 days either. It also requires constant immersion of wood in still, highly-mineralized water, which also isn't consistent with the biblical description.
No places say fossilization takes billions of years, but they will tell you it takes more than 6000.
Evolution means adapting to conditions, not necessarily getting bigger and stronger. As the oxygen-rich environment changed, being smaller became an advantage; smaller organisms also required less food. Smaller muscles require less intake to fuel and maintain. The modern dragonfly is amazingly efficient and a superb predator. THAT is what evolution is about.
Ok cp, you're smarter than this. Perhaps not the water, but what the water shoves through does the cutting.
As far as fossils, you need something to be buried quickly, like a flood, that's why we don't have as many. There was only one big one :)
Bury fresh cut wood in right conditions, and you get petrified wood, harder than rock, and it only takes a few years, not millions or billions as the guide at many places may tell you.
The great thing I love, is when one says you just don't understand.
What about dragon flies with 6 ft wing spans? They could take off your bug sheild and your hood. Lol
Is getting smaller and weaker evolving?
