Peter Jupp will discuss petrification as instantaneous and under the control of dynamic Earth-shaking events. What have we found on Earth to demonstrate this hypothesis? A forest of giant trees turned to solid rock. A soft-bodied crab petrified to rock and enclosed in the center of a basalt Thunderegg.
Dinosaur remains that conceal a heart replete with chambers but turned to iron. A shoal of fish in their death throes petrified within the limestone. Was their end instantaneous and more importantly what force of nature created this scenario? Classically, geological time is the vehicle cited but Peter will show that there is compelling evidence for a new paradigm. More in the link below..
