Forams and Diatoms: Testing Young Earth Flood Geology Hypotheses

Diatoms with their symmetrical highly-photogenic glass houses may get most of the attention but the foraminiferans (forams) present some formidable competition.  In my recent article (Life in a Glass House)  I revealed that the glass-house remains of diatoms are conspicuously absent from the bottom two-thirds of the geological column.  This raised a rather uncomfortable question […]

Life in a Glass House: Diatoms Shatter Young Earth Flood Geology

Diatoms are single-celled organisms that live in almost any moist environment.  They are found by the millions in a cup of sea water or a puddle in your back yard.  They play a critical role in the environment as oxygen producers. But they are best known for their visually stunning homes constructed of glass. I […]
