A petrified hammer was found in Cretaceous rocks (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- An iron hammer with wooden handle was found embedded in rock in Cretaceous sediments (or Ordovician, by some accounts) near London, Texas. The enclosing rock contains Lower Cretaceous fossils.
- Patton, Don, n.d. Fossilized hammer.
While this has fallen out of favor with most creation scientists there is one aspect of this hammer that suggest that this could still be Pre-Flood. Those who insist that this hammer is recent have yet to offer an explanation for it. The iron head of the hammer has a coating of FeO which needs two atmospheres of pressure to form. There may be another answer other than the hammer being pre-Flood but nothing has been proposed as of yet.
