80-foot baleen whale fossil proves rapid diatom deposition

Baleen whale buried and preserved in diotomite strataPolystrate Whale Fossil: Diatomaceous earth is formed of the remains of dead diatoms, and because these are microscopic single-celled algae, old-Earth geologists naturally believe that diatom deposits represent lengthy periods of time, with claims of deposition rates as slow as 0.

School of jellyfish fossilized in 7 "million-year" layers

jellyfish falsify million-year formation claimA Polystrate Fossilized Jellyfish School: Seven sedimentary layers in central Wisconsim had been previously described by old-earth geologists as taking a million years to form. Now, some soft-bodied jellyfish are making that claim hard to maintain.

This tree in Joggins, Nova Scotia did not stand for a million years
