A man in Texas was helping his aunt with some yardwork when he dug up some interesting fossils. He suspected the fossils were from a Biblical event, and his suspicions have been confirmed by a museum.
Wayne Propst was moving dirt outside his aunt’s home in Tyler when he discovered some fossils. The fossils were rocks that contained what appeared to be fossilized snails and he suspected that they ended up there due to the Biblical world-wide flood.
“From Noah’s flood to my front yard, how much better can it get?” said Propst to CBS 19.
His aunt, Sharon Givan, is excited about the find. Neighborhood kids have been invited to Givan’s home to help excavate more fossils with toothbrushes. “To think that it dated back to when God destroyed the earth,” Givan marveled. “I mean, how much better could anything be.”
Propst and Givan contacted self-proclaimed fossil expert Joe Taylor. Taylor runs the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyuton, Texas. Upon examining photos of the fossils that Propst found, Taylor declared them the real deal.
“We believe that the fossil record speaks of catastrophic events happening several thousand years ago rather than slow processes taking place over millions or billions of years as is held by the popular establishment,” says Taylor’s website for his museum.
Probst, who had a boyhood fascination with dinosaurs, is delighted that the fossils have been authenticated. “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,” Propst told the news station. “I don’t even gotta search anymore.”
