When a Young Earth Creationist discovers a 60 Myo fossil

And a rare interesting find at that, from the early Palaeogene, when life was radiating rapidly into the niches that had been occupied by the dinosaurs and their cousins.

He laudably passes it on to his local museum, but explains its occurrence by invoking Noah's Flood. How else would a fish get entombed in sandstone in the middle of Alberta?

That fellow found that group of fish fossils here in Calgary. There is a Bible Belt here and many Young Earth Creationists among them. Thank goodness he recognized it was an important find and called a paleontologist.

He still holds to his 6000 yr old Earth view and maintains it is all a matter of interpretation as to the age of these fossils. AARGH
