Ancient Cypress Trees and Modern Shipworms

Back in 2004, Hurricane Ivan removed sediment that was hiding cypress trees, which was obviously interesting to scientists. It was also remarkable for creation scientists as well because they were clearly not tens of thousands of Darwin years old. New findings are surfacing as well.

That submerged Ice Age cypress trees near Mobile Bay, Alabama, has been causing a stir for scientists. Creation scientists are also appreciating the findings.

The people of yesteryear were mistaken by giving shipworms their name. They are actually a kind of mollusk, but look very much like a worm. They also like to eat wood among other things. By extracting the shipworms, many types of bacteria were discovered, and a passel of them were previously unknown. Yes, bacteria are practically everywhere, but many are beneficial — or at least, harmless.

When researchers commenced to looking for the shipworms in the submerged cypress stumps, they were amazed — amazed, I tell you — and how well the wood was preserved. But the shipworms could easily have consumed the wood long ago if the earth was as old as secular scientists believe. What we actually have here is evidence of the earth's youth, the Ice Age, and the Genesis Flood.
The recent discovery of a flooded Ice Age forest in Mobile Bay, Alabama, has scientists diving for even more hidden secrets. In December 2019, a team of scientists from Northeastern University and the University of Utah took the Research Vessel E.O. Wilson to collect some pieces of the ancient trees.

Brian Helmuth, one of the scientist team members from Northeastern University was a bit surprised by the spectacular preservation of the wood, telling CNN: “It really looked like something that you could have picked up from today. It still had bark on it. It still had all the coloration on the inside. It was just locked away for 60,000 years.”
