Beam me up scotty, not into a rock-life inside solid rock
February 24, 2009, 10:05 am


When digging marble from the quarry at Oreston, England, in the 19th century, a startling discovery was made. This marble is finely grained and quite pure. The only defect is that here and there wide seams of clay wandered through the 400-million year old stone, sometimes giving way to partially-filled caverns. In one of the caverns, the fossil bones of three rhinoceroses was found, which were common in the area 65 million to 2 million years ago. The cave was 15 feet wide, 45 feet long, and lay 70 feet down. There were no stalactites, no stalagmites, and no indication that there had ever been an opening in the rock, and no indication on how the Rhino’s got there.

A horned lizard was found inside a block of stone, in New Mexico, in 1853. The stone was “so solid as to preclude the entrance of the smallest insect”. The lizard was sent to the Smithsonian Institute, where it died 2 days later.

Excavating for the Hartlepool waterworks in Durham England, in 1865, workmen accidentally freed a living toad from a block of magnesian limestone 25 feet down.

The cavity [in which the toad had been contained] was no larger than its body, and presented the appearance of being a cast of it. The toad’s eyes shone with unusual brilliancy, and it was full of vivacity on its liberation. It appeared, when first discovered, desirous to performs the process of respiration, but evidently experienced some difficulty, and the only sign of success consisted of a “barking” noise, which it continues to make invariably at present on being touched. The toad is in the possession of Mr. S. Horner, the president of the Natural History Society, and continues in as lively a state as when found. On a minute examination of its mouth is found to be completely closed, and the barking noise it makes proceeds from its nostrils. The claws of its fore feet are turned inwards, and its hind ones are of extraordinary length and unlike the present English toad… The toad, when first released, was of a pale colour and not readily distinguished from the stone, but shortly after its colour grew darke r until it became a fine olive brown.

The last of the pterodactyls (flying reptiles with leathery wings and long, toothy beaks) died about 100 million years ago, according to established scientific opinion. But in the experience of a number of startled French workmen, the last one died in the winter of 1856 in a partially complete railway tunnel between the St. Dizier and Nancy lines. In the h alf-light of the tunnel, something monstrous stumbled toward them out of a great boulder of Jurassic limestone they had just split open. It fluttered its wings, croaked, and died at their feet. The creature, whose wingspan was 10 feet 7 inches, had four legs joined by a membrane, like a bat. What should have been feet were long talons, and the mouth was arrayed with sharp teeth. The skin was like black leather, thick and oily. At the nearby town of Gray, the creature was immediately identified by a local student of paleontology as a pterodactyl. The rock stratum in which it had been found was consistent with the period when pterodactyls lived, and the limest one boulder that had imprisoned the winged reptile for millions of years was found to contain a cavity in the form of an exact mold of the creature’s body.

“The great problem for geological theories to explain is that amazing phenomenon, the mingling of the remains of animals of different species and climates, discovered in exhaustless quantities in the interior parts of the earth so that the exuviae of those genera which no longer exist at all, are found confusedly mixed together in the soils of the most northerly latitudes . . . The bones of those animals which can live only in the torrid zone are buried in the frozen soil of the polar regions.”[20]

All around the globe there are caves which are full of bones.  Many of these contain the remains of animals that would not have normally existed alongside each other.  One such cave, at Oreston, near Plymouth, England contained mammoths, rhinoceroses, bears, lions and reindeer.  Kent’s cave in nearby Torquay yielded, amongst another things, the bones of sabre-toothed tigers.

A cave near Settle, in West Yorkshire, contains the remains of the hippo, rhino, mammoth, bison, hyena and other animals.  They are buried under twelve feet of clay deposits and the cave is 1450 feet above sea level.  Charles Lyell speculated that:

“The hippopotami issued from North African rivers, such as the Nile, and swam northward in summer along the coasts of the Mediterranean, or even occasionally visited islands near the shore. Here and there they may have landed to graze or browse, tarrying awhile, and afterwards continuing their course northward.. to the Somme, Thames or Severn, making timely retreat to the south before the snow and ice set in.”[21]

Yet, according to his Theory of Uniformity we should be able to observe hippos doing the same thing today!  So, what could have caused hippo bones to be found deep inside English caves?  They may indeed have lived in England, but hippos are not known to climb mountains by choice.  They could have been hiding from the cataclysm, sharing the cave with terrified hyenas and bison.  Or their bodies, dismembered by a violent cataclysm, may have washed up there, as part of a concurrent great flood.  It is reasonable to say that these two ideas are more sound than hippos going on a summer holiday!

In China, near the village of Choukoutien, among the animals found in caves were a porcupine, tiger, woolly rhinoceros, camel, elephant, baboon, ostrich and a species of tortoise.  They are not of the same habitat – the bones have been somehow gathered up and dumped in the caves.[22] What forces of nature could do such a thing?

In Sicilian caves were found hippopotami, hyenas, lions, Megatherium, rabbits, bears and elephants.[23] On Kotelnoi Island, in the Arctic Circle above Siberia, where “neither shrubs, nor trees, nor bushes exist”, are found the bones of elephants, buffaloes, horses and rhinoceroses.[24] Similar evidence is available worldwide – proof of destruction at levels we dare not imagine to be possible.

Some say this is evidence of a recent poleshift

But this does not explain the living creatures encapsulated in stone.
