Paleontologists who dig for fossils of animals and plants have never found fossils in granite rock. Why is this so? There should be fossils in granite if it was laid down over millions of years. Granite is found above black basalt which is the mantle of the earth from which flows the magma from molten rock at the center of the planet, which issues as lava out of volcanoes. Granite is light-colored coarse-grained crystals which is the basement rock of the world and under girds all our continents.But why no fossils found in it.
Robert V. Gentry, discovered something in granite that gives us the answer why no fossils are found in granite? Consider these facts which were uncovered by Gentry’s research (Robert V. Gentry, “Creation’s Tiny Mystery”, 1986).
(1). The major basement rocks on our planet (granite) did not originate from the gradual cooling of molten lava, but came into being in their present solid form. Interesting note, granite can be melted; but it will reform into rhyolite, never back into granite. That fact completely disproves the Big Bang and evolutionary theory of the origins of stars and our world.
(2). The major granite rock formations came into existence within a space of less than three minutes time! Incredible? Yes! But scientific evidence confirms it.
There is trillions upon trillions of radiohalos that are in all the granite rocks, boulders, mountains and foundation strata of the world. These little halos prove that those rocks came into existence in solid form within less than 180 seconds.
The rock in which they are found had to be solid at the time it was first brought into existence, or these halos could not form inside it within that three minutes. However, all evolutionary theories say that the earth was molten for millions of years. Since this granite is the basement rock forming a thick layer, with the continents of the world above it and the basalt and magma below it, all this continental foundation had to form solid in less than three minutes time. With this in mind, there is little reason to expect the magma below and the continents above to have been formed in millions of years, if granite between them was formed in less than three minutes.
Earth was not molten in the beginning according to the Scriptures in Genesis 1:1-2. It was covered with water “in the beginning”. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:1-2).
