Q: Is there any evidence that fossils have formed quickly?

A: Evolutionists have taught that the stratified fossil record of dinosaurs and 
other creatures formed slowly over millions of years. And most people have this 
idea that it takes millions of years to turn bones into fossils as well.

Devoid of historical truth?

"Thus, in view, not, I repeat, of the recondite speculations of infidel 
philosophers, but in the face of the plainest and most commonplace of 
ascertained physical facts, the story of the Noachian Deluge has no more claim 
to credit than has that of Deucalion; and whether it was, or was not, suggested 
by the familiar acquaintance of its originators with the effects of unusually 
great overflows of the Tigris and Euphrates, it is utterly devoid of historical 

- Thomas H. Huxley , Science And Hebrew Tradition Essays, pp. 226, 1897.

But creation scientists believe that most of the fossils - including most of 
the dinosaur fossils - formed at the time of Noah's Flood, only about 4,500 
years ago. This means that fossils must have formed rather quickly.

So, is there any evidence that fits with this?

A museum in New Zealand showcases a petrified ham, which formed after a volcano 
covered a village in ash in 1886 (see
*Tarawera's night of terror). And a museum in Tasmania features a petrified 
hat. It was left in a mine, and after fifty years it had changed from being a 
soft, felt hat into a hard hat! (See
*Fossil' hat.)

No, it doesn't take millions of years to make fossils.

Can we know, then, when the fossil record was formed? The answer's in Genesis: 
most of the fossils were formed during the Flood of Noah's day, just a few 
thousand years ago.
