Flooding and a Fossil Graveyard

The tired old story that a critter dies, gradually gets covered up and turns into a fossil after huge amounts of time seems to be falling by the wayside. It was unrealistic and unscientific in the first place. No, fossilization requires rapid burial and the proper conditions. A flood will do the job nicely. Especially if it's a big one.

Some people believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds. It is annoying to them when birds and dinosaurs are swept up together in flood waters and end up in the mix at a fossil graveyard.
According to Genesis, all creatures of the earth were created within days of each other—including dinosaurs and humans. A common question in response to this is "If dinosaurs and man lived at the same time, why aren't their fossils found together?"
Bird bones and egg shell fossil fragments from a waterside bird colony are sending clues from the long-ago past to help solve this quandary.
The fossilized colony found in Romania was apparently a victim of a watery disaster. Despite their toothed beaks and small claws, the birds looked very much like modern water fowl. The Cretaceous strata in which they were found also contained herbivorous dinosaurs and other creatures.
