Redefining "The Great Dying"

For some reason, a whole heap of critters died off in a thing that is called the Permian extinction or "The Great Dying", but secular geologists are hard pressed to come up with a reasonable explanation. Indeed, there are differing ideas as to what happened, when it happened, and how long it took. Geologists examining a fossil of mostly-toothless Tillie Dicynodon are cognating on how other geologists have the whole story backward.

Evolutionary views are changing again, this time regarding the Permian extinction. However, creation science Genesis Flood geology is a far better explanation.

We know that scientists change their ideas when new information comes to light, but evolutionary ideas change very rapidly because their dust-to-Dicynodon paradigm is faulty to begin with. Creationists also change their views according to the evidence, with one major difference: models can come and go, but the starting point of the Word of God stands. Genesis Flood geology is a far better explanation than the material that secular geologists present, and the following article gives an overview of creationist views.
One long-standing evolutionary “tale” is that toward the end of the Permian period (conventionally dated 252–299 million years ago) 90% of marine creatures and 75% of terrestrial organisms were wiped out in the most devastating mass extinction in all of history. This supposed mass extinction, sometimes called “The Great Dying,” is said to have happened over the course of 15 million years (or 200,000 years, depending on which evolutionist you ask!) and is said to have decimated shallow-water marine invertebrates, which make up the bulk of Permian fossils, as well as some aquatic and terrestrial vertebrates. Other groups, including some reptile and amphibian species, supposedly underwent serious decline during this time as well. There are many different stories of what caused the Permian extinction, but it has generally been agreed that this supposed extinction event was devastating to land and aquatic species. However, the interpretation of new research on Permian fossils challenges this story.
