Texas Man Says Noah's Flood Left Some Snails in His Yard

The claim has won support from a local fossil museum director and self-proclaimed expert on the biblical inundation, ABC television reports on its web site.

A Texas man claims he has uncovered some fossils from Noah' s flood in his yard, and an anti-science museum director agrees.

ABC news reports that Wayne Propst was helping his aunt lay dirt outside the house when he discovered some snail fossils.

He sent some pictures to the curator and director of Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum Joe Taylor in Crosbyton, Texas.

Taylor, who believes that evolution is just an “old-fashioned theory” and is a self-claimed expert in Noah’s flood, analyzed the fossils and supported Wayne’s assumptions that the fossils date to the flood described in the Book of Genesis.

Propst was very excited by the find. “From Noah’s flood to my front yard, how much better can it get?” he said.

The collections manager of Texas Vertebrate Paleontology Collection James Sagebiel said that the fossils are 35-40 million years old.

But other researchers believe the biblical flood would have occurred in the Middle East.
