Evidence from Geology – October 13
“When Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, the resulting blast cloud snapped off huge trees for 150 square miles around the mountain. At the same time an avalanche of mud sped down from the top of the mountain into Spirit Lake, causing a wave almost 900 feet high which scraped trees from the slopes adjacent to the lake. Many of these trees ended up in Spirit Lake buried at various levels on the bottom as they slowly sank in an upright position after becoming water-logged. Scuba investigations and side-scanning sonar have identified up to 100,000 upright deposited tree stumps buried a various levels of ash and peat deposits at the bottom of Spirit Lake.
Since Mount St. Helens continues to be active (depositing more material in the lake with time) these trees will be buried in what looks like separate geological layers, even though they all came from the same forest.
Years from now if sediment were to fill the lake and bury the trees in such a way that they became petrified in their present positions, these trees would look like multiple forest buried on top of each other over tens of thousand years. This is exactly what was assumed to be the origin of the petrified forest at Yellowstone National Park’s Specimen Ridge. Many geologists now acknowledge that the Yellowstone petrified trees were from the same standing forest, transported into their current position by a massive flood catastrophe.”

So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days. (Genesis 7:23-24)
