Revealing Our Fossil Wall

It was an exciting week here at ICR as we watched workers carefully mount nine fossil replicas to the Discovery Center’s exterior wall. Each 12ˈ×12ˈ panel weighs 3,500 pounds! Two of them are based on fossils in ICR’s collection. Artisans carved the replicas out of modeling clay and cast them in concrete.

The sequence from left to right reflects the relative order these creatures were buried in the fossil record from bottom to top. Rather than showing evidence of evolution, this sequence actually demonstrates the progression of the global Flood described in Genesis. The trilobite, cephalopod, paddlefish, ichthyosaur, mosasaur, pterodactyl, Archaeopteryx, and Tyrannosaurus rex were catastrophically buried during the Flood, while the fully human Neanderthal fossil is from the immediate post-Flood Ice Age.

Now that we have the fossil wall in place, people passing by will have a glimpse into the compelling evidence for the Bible that awaits them inside. We’re making great progress on this project as we seek to proclaim biblical and scientific truth to the next generation. Thank you for giving and praying!
