Texas Man Believes He Found Fossils From Noah's Ark

Wayne Propst was helping his aunt, who was laying dirt near her home in the town of Tyler, Texas. It was there that he found snail fossils. Propst told local news station KYTX, “From Noah’s flood to my front yard, how much better can it get?”

Propst then sent photos to sent photos to Joe Taylor, director and curator of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton, Texas, for analysis. Taylor holds the positions that evolution is not real, that a worldwide flood occurred a few thousand years ago, and that Noah brought dinosaurs on his ark.

Taylor told KYTX that Propst's fossils are from the time of the flood. On the other hand, James Sagebiel, the collections manager at the Texas Vertebrate Paleontology Collections, told the Tyler Morning Telegraph “The rocks there are about 35-40 million years old, and these little turret snails are commonly found in marine rocks of that age. It’s not unusual.”

Tyler explains that millions of years ago, Tyler, Texas would have been coastline. Some researchers believe that a large-scale flood event in the Middle East was the inspiration for the Noah's ark story.
