Dr. Bob Visits Glendive, Montana

Do dinosaur fossils provide evidence of the global flood?

Application: Paleontological evidence provides support for the historic accuracy of the global flood recorded in the Bible.

In this L.I.F.E. Lesson, Dr. Bob visits Glendive, Montana and discovers a Triceratops skull. He also visits with Shana Baisch, the ranch owner who found another Triceratops on the same property that demonstrates flood sediments.

Supplemental Information

When fossils are discovered, the implication by paleontologists is that the remains are discovered within one sediment layer, and therefore can be placed clearly in one dated deposit. The truth in the field is often something different. The triceratops, named Shane, discovered at the Baisch Ranch in 2017 is one example. It was extracted from multiple sediment layers of varying types. Non-biblical geologists place these layers thousands or millions of years apart, and yet the skull penetrates these multiple layers with no sign of having been exposed for years, let alone millennia.

Fossils that bridge multiple layers are called polystrate fossils. The most common examples are trees, and have been a challenge to scientists that claim the layers represent millions of years. But our visit to Glendive, Montana gave us the opportunity to see that this is not an uncommon occurrence with dinosaur bones either. The more consistent explanation for this occurrence is the Biblical one: these animals perished in the global flood, and multiple sediment packages were deposited on them as successive ecosystems were inundated with flood waters, and had their sediments spread over vast areas in the deposits we now observe across the globe.

Fossil Digging at the Baisch Ranch

In May, 2022, The Flood Museum participated in a dinosaur dig expedition in Glendive, Montana. The dig was on the Baisch Ranch. We were guided by Shan Baisch. It was rough climbing over the rugged hills. Everywhere we looked there were signs of dinosaur bone weathering out of the sediments. Layers on layers of sediment were visible. Only an experienced eye could identify the layers that held the evidence we were after.

We were excited to discover a triceratops skull on the first day. Two horns were discovered protruding from the ground on a ledge. Further excavation determined that they were still attached to the skull, and a large portion of the frill was intact. Multiple bones have been recovered for this triceratops, named "Jericho."
