Scientists Admit to Rapid Burial of Scelidosaurus

Scelidosaurus was a weird thing, plain and simple. It went on all fours but the front legs were shorter than those in the back. Mayhaps its contemporaries would see it when it was standing still and think it was crouched and ready to spring, but no, it was just built that way.

It is known for being mostly complete and several have been found in the British Isles — except for that one that is found way over in Arizona. The first one was found in 1858.

Scientists use rapid burial as an explanation when needed, like with Scelidosaurus, but  keep the other parts of their model to prop up deep time.

That premier specimen was sent to Richard Owen (who gave the world the word dinosaur.) He figured it was a land creature, but was washed out to sea and quickly buried. Paleontologists are coming around to that way of thinking, especially because of such excellent fossil preservation They will not accept the Genesis Flood as the most rational explanation.

If someone has a plan that consistently fails, does it make sense to continue using it? Not hardly! Secular scientists are using a form of catastrophism when convenient, and now for rapid burial and preservation of fossils. But they keep the other part of the plan that insists on millions of years. Sure, Skippy.

Over the years a number of specimens of the land-living dinosaur Scelidosaurus have been found along the Jurassic coast between Charmouth and Lyme Regis in the Black Ven cliffs of the Charmouth Mudstone Formation. This is identified as the Lower Lias, or Early Jurassic, and dated according to the standard uniformitarian timescale to around 190 Ma. The Jurassic coast is normally noted for its marine fossils, but the strata contain fossils of land-living plants and animals, such as wood and flies, mixed with marine ammonites in the same layers. Scelidosaurus was a quadrupedal herbivorous dinosaur with the front limbs somewhat shorter than the hind limbs. . . . Protective bony scutes, or osteoderms, have been found on the side and back in rows, which provided some armour for the animal when alive in similar fashion to the osteoderms on crocodiles (unlike Scelidosaurus, crocodiles are carnivorous and saurischian).
