Fossilized Antarctic Forest Stumps Scientists but Fuels Bible Flood Theories

Dr. Gerald Schroeder, a physicist from MIT who "does not advocate [the scientists'] dates of millions of years as accurate," offers a Scriptural basis for the discovery.

A team of scientists led by Erik Gulbranson, a paleoecologist at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, discovered a forest of fossilized trees in Antarctica's Transantarctic Mountains. They claim that the collection of evergreens, deciduous trees, and gingkoes is the "oldest polar forest on record from the southern polar region."
The scientists claim the fossilized remains indicate a catastrophic global event in which 95 percent of the species on Earth became extinct. They believe this massive die-off was caused by greenhouse gas emissions from volcanoes, which raised the planet's temperatures to extreme levels and caused the oceans to acidify.
"What we're trying to research is what exactly caused those transitions to occur, and that's what we don't know very well," Gulbranson said.
