The Hard Side of Flour

That white, fluffy stuff found in most kitchens known as flour can be fun, especially when it is used to make something edible. I like that part. You can also play detective and sprinkle it on the ground to see who is intruding. Doesn't work too well in a brightly-lit room, though. You can also make glue with it.

"But Cowboy Bob, I have a gluten allergy!"

Was it properly diagnosed, or did you form an opinion? People cannot pretend to be doctors, so do not self-diagnose, old son, and do not eat the glue. Anyway, this post is about something more solid: petrified flour.

Flour was petrified, and it did not take millions of years to do it

Creationists share stories and articles about various items that turned to stone or something. Unfortunately, they don't check their sources. Some items may be valid, but when in doubt, go without. I suspicion that the reason some folks bring these up is to make the valid point that petrification, like fossilization, requires proper conditions, not long ages. These conditions are explained by the Genesis Flood.

Sacks of flour can be seen that were petrified. No, not horribly frightened, but actually turned to stone. That's the real meaning of the word, you see. And it shows quite clearly that Darwin years are unnecessary.
The oblong rocks at the Eureka Springs Gardens in Arkansas, USA, bring a curious smile to passing tourists, once they inspect them closely.
Grey and smooth, the rocks have a fabric imprint, resembling coarse canvas sacking. They look remarkably like sacks of flour! The bottom of one sack is elongated and even preserves a pattern of stitching. The top is pulled together, complete with petrified wrinkles, as if it was once tied with rope.
