Whopper Sand and Head Burial

Only a massive, high-energy flow of water could move sand over 1,000 feet thick more than 200 miles offshore or transport a dinosaur over 70 miles out from the nearest coast. And only repeated tsunami-like flows could bury it about 1.5 miles deep. And similar, tsunami-like flows would be necessary to transport land-dwelling phytosaurs tens of miles offshore.

Whopper Sand and Head Burial

Article#: 1755

Would you like a real interaction—a real, memorable interaction that you can feel—with God?  Many desire such an experience but this Holy communion is reserved for the born-again, whose hands are clean and hearts are pure, who are pressing into God’s presence.  There is a secret key that opens such a door and the key is praise.  With this secret key, one can enter at will. 

Psalm 22:3:

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

God literally inhabits the praise of His people.  Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines inhabit: to live or dwell in; to occupy as a place of settled residence. 

When a child of God praises Him with his might, it can be loud and joyous or even in mighty quietness, God inhabits that praise.  In the presence of the Lord, there is victory, peace, deliverances of all sorts, and a radiant light from which all darkness must flee.

I Samuel 16:23 speaks of King Saul being delivered of an evil spirit when young David (who would be come king) would play for him upon his harp.  Evil spirits can no more dwell in praise than darkness can dwell in light. 

I Thessalonians 5:18:

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Praising God in everything is the will of God for you and I—and that means every thing.  I recall, many years ago, my father and I being called to the emergency room of the local hospital.  A young saint from our church had been taken to the emergency room as a result of a terrible accident.  My father and I pastored together.  The young saint’s mother, Mary, was not permitted to go into the operating room where her husband and son were with the doctor.  My father and I were permitted into the operating room and entered to a dreadful scene: The doctor had just pronounced the young man dead.  When the news was relayed to Mary, she simply lifted her hands and began to praise God.  Her actions were so unbelievable to those who witnessed it.  Mary knew—absolutely and most certainly knew—that her beloved son was in the presence of the Lord, and because of that glorious hope, she praised.  In her praise was the habitation of God, and He carried her in this time of such great grief.  In everything, praise God, whether in the good or in what may first appear to be bad.  The power of God will convert the circumstances because He lives inside our praise.  Praise is the key to our true interaction with God, and this is a very real and glorious place.

Have you been born again?  Do you desire a true communion with God?  Born-again is a place where you are literally born a second time, this time of the Spirit of God.  At this place, all your sin and shame are erased and all of Satan’s bondages are broken.  Do you desire to be free and clean and to start a brand-new and eternal life in Christ Jesus?  This opportunity stands before you now.  Turn to Christ Jesus today and everything will change for you.  Follow me in this simple prompt.  Ready?  Here we go: Click onto “Further with Jesus”  for childlike instructions and immediate entry into the Kingdom of God.  NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Genesis 1:1:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

GOD SAID, Exodus 20:11:

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

GOD SAID, Genesis 6:7-8:

7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Psalm 2:1:

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The unredeemed mock, malign, and rage against the God of the Bible and they imagine vain, empty, and foolish things.  Romans 1:28:

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

A reprobate mind is a worthless mind.  As a result of this condition, carnal man will pursue and act upon worthless and degrading things. 

Last week, GodSaidManSaid completed the latest 100 God-proofs in the “Jot and Tittle” series.  In this series, we offer one God-proof after another in rapid fashion.  Presently, the proof counter in this series is at 300.  All reasonable and even unreasonable doubt is erased.  Why do the unwashed continue to resist and to resist so vociferously?  There can be no doubt that Jesus is thoroughly accurate when He declares in John 3:19-21:

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

This is the gist of it. 

GodSaidManSaid has published around 200 features that address a 6,000+-year-old earth and universe that was created in six, literal, 24-hour days, the same earth that was destroyed by a catastrophic, global flood in the days of Noah and his ark. The discoveries supporting these truths are constantly pouring in—no pun intended—yet fallen man must resist because his deeds are evil. The headline in the August 2019 issue of Acts & Facts reads, “Deep-Sea Dinosaur Fossil Buries Evolution.”  Excerpts from the feature, written by doctors Clarey and Johnson, follow:

Oil and gas explorations have found sedimentary deposits so massive and so far offshore that secular science has no satisfactory explanation for their occurrence.  Marine rock exposures have also revealed numerous land fossils washed great distances out to sea. Drilling off the coast of Norway has even pulled up a core containing dinosaur bone.  Although these discoveries baffle uniformitarian scientists, they are not an issue for Flood geologists.

Offshore drilling in the North Sea near Norway has resulted in cores containing bone fragments from marine reptiles such as plesiosaurs or ichthyosaurs, marine monsters that one would expect to find in the muddy depths of oceanic waters.  But would you expect any recognizable bone fragments from a dinosaur—a land dweller by definition—about one-and-a-half miles deep and over 70 miles away from shore?  What scenario could explain that occurrence? 

The bone slice [of what appears to be a Plateosaurus] was discovered during the description of a core retrieved in February 1997 from well 34/4-9S in the north-western part of the Snorre Field. …

The presence of root traces suggests that the flood-plain was covered with small trees and bushes, vegetation suitable for herbivorous animals living on the alluvial plain.

Based upon comparative studies of fibro-lamellar “longbone” tissue—especially the radial fibro-lamellar tissue, which appears to be from the metaphyseal (narrow portion) region of the bone rather than the middle of the bone shaft—birds and mammals were eliminated as providers of the bone found in the offshore core. Comparative histology analysis indicates this find as being from a Plateosaurus, a terrestrial dinosaur that resembled a quadruped sauropod but with hind legs much larger than the forelimbs so that bipedal locomotion was likely. Analysis of Plateosaurus footprints elsewhere show that it sometimes walked on all fours and at other times on its much larger hind feet.

This find indicates the Plateosaurus was washed way out into oceanic waters and quickly buried in sediment slurry in what became offshore mudstone more than a mile-and-a-half deep.

The article continues concerning the mysterious sand deposits:

So, in 2011, geologists were shocked to find the Whopper Sand, an enormous petroleum-bearing formation in the Gulf of Mexico’s deep-sea sediments.  Powerful water motion was needed to deposit this sand about 200 miles offshore, a situation that baffles uniformitarian thinkers but doesn’t mystify creationists.

No one should be surprised when geological data match the Biblical record of the Genesis Flood, because true science corroborates Scripture.  In one case [i.e. the Whopper Sand], creationist geology not only supports the facts reported in Genesis, it [also] explains why petroleum companies delayed finding billions of barrels of oil, because they erringly assumed uniformitarian ideas about where to look for this deep-sea treasure.

Before day 150 of the Flood year, tsunami-like waves moved inland across the continents, covering them with repeated layers of sedimentary sheet washings.  From the end of Day 150, the Flood’s mid-point, a remarkable reversal (“return”) occurred, followed by continual widespread and powerful drainage dynamics.

That pivotal reversal left its marks all over the world’s stratigraphic rock layers.  One example is “a large, unusually thick and extensive sand body in the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico [7,600-10,000 feet deep]…so large and completely unexpected that the oil industry dubbed it the ‘Whopper Sand.’”

The Whopper Sand surprised secular geologists because their uniformitarianism assumptions would never had led them to look for it so deep in the Gulf of Mexico.

If this is a post-Flood deposit, what local catastrophe can explain this massive sand unit? … [T]he size and scale of the Whopper Sand is beyond any deposit like it in the world.  The erosive power to produce this much sand and to transport it so far would have likely affected most of the contiguous [lower 48] USA…making it nearly impossible for animal and human survival.  As described above, the best explanation for the Whopper Sand is at the onset of the receding water phase of the Flood.

Only a massive, high-energy flow of water could move sand over 1,000 feet thick more than 200 miles offshore or transport a dinosaur over 70 miles out from the nearest coast.  And only repeated tsunami-like flows could bury it about 1.5 miles deep.  And similar, tsunami-like flows would be necessary to transport land-dwelling phytosaurs tens of miles offshore.

We’re talking about unimaginable amounts of energy—greater than any tsunami witnessed in modern times.  These features are difficult to comprehend without recognizing a catastrophe as big as the great global Flood described in Genesis.  There is no other conceivable explanation that fits the observable facts.  It was a terrible day at the beach when the doomed Plateosaurus was washed out to sea and buried in sediments far off the coast of modern Norway. 

And it was a terrible thing for the earth’s people who did not heed Noah’s warnings that God was going to send a flood to judge them for their wickedness.  We can thank God that Noah and his family believed, obeyed, and were saved. [End of quotes]

Land-dwelling dinosaurs buried in ocean sediment, sea-dwelling fish fossils on every mountain peak, droves of marine fossils discovered in the Hell Creek formation in central USA, whales buried in the desert—the list goes on and on, yet the “wisest” among us choose to bury their heads in the sand—“Whopper Sand.”

God’s Word is true and righteous altogether, a place to build a life that will last forever.
