When the Genesis Flood’s Tsunamis Hit Norway and Svalbard, Terrestrial Dinosaurs were Power-Washed Out to Sea
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
They that go down to the sea [yâm] in ships, who do business in great waters [mayîm rabbîm]; these see the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep [metsûlâh]. (Psalm 107:23-24)
Recently I wrote about some unusual dinosaur-related paleontology finds in 2 territories belonging to Norway, specifically Spitsbergen (the main island of the far-north Svalbard archipelago) and the sedimentary seabed of “Snorre Field” (in the Norwegian North Sea), a deepsea oil-drilling location more than 50 miles to the west of Norway’s western coastline — with mention of how the best explanation for those finds (i.e., the Genesis Flood) reminded me of the gigantic Whopper Sand in the Gulf of Mexico, where an enormous Flood-blasted sand formation now yields literally billions of barrels of deepsea petroleum. [See “Doomsday at the Beach for Nordic Dinosaurs!“, posted at https://pinejay.com/2019/04/26/doomsday-at-the-beach-for-nordic-dinosaurs/ — with picture/image credits shown here, cited there.]
Dinosaur tracks were found on Svalbard’s sedimentary rock beaches, and some Plateosaurus dinosaur bone was found (inside an oil-drill core!) about a mile-and-a-half deep, more than 70 miles offshore of Norway!
Only the forceful mega-tsunamis of the Genesis Flood could cause those results, says geologist/paleontologist Dr. Tim Clarey (who formerly worked for Chevron):
“Only a massive, high-energy flow of water and muddy sand could transport a dinosaur over 70 miles offshore. And only repeated high-energy flows could bury it about 1.5 miles deep. We are talking unimaginable energy needed here, greater than any tsunami witnessed in historic (post-Flood) times. And similarly, the Whopper Sand in the Gulf of Mexico needs massive, high-energy sheet-flow off the (North American) continent. Something again, beyond anything happening today (geologically speaking). These features, and the dinosaur footprints on Svalbard, are difficult to comprehend without recognizing a catastrophe as big as the great (global) Flood described in Genesis. There is just no other conceivable explanation (that fits the observable facts).”
[Quoting Dr. Timothy Clarey, summary provided in writing AD2019-04-25.]
WOW! It was a terrible day at the beach when the Svalbard ornithopod dinosaurs were tsunami-blasted into the sea. Likewise, the doomed Plateosaurus, buried (~1.5 miles deep!) in sea sediments, off the shore of western Norway (70+ miles away from his “home”) had no clue about what had just hit him.
Today I wrote a limerick poem, as a post-script of that paleontology/geology study.
NORDIC-POLAR DINOSAURS GOT WASHED OUT TO SEA, BY THE GENESIS FLOOD (UNLESS THEY ESCAPED ON NOAH’S ARK)
Dinos, who roamed Norway’s shores,
Got buried, in North Sea floors;
Power-washed, by the great Flood,
Buried deep, in sand and mud —
Left behind, and drowned, dinosaurs.
Other than the God-selected dinosaur pairs who were safety aboard Noah’s Ark, it was a catastrophic watery death for Earth’s terrestrial dinosaurs, including those then living in the Nordic-polar lands that we today call Norway and Svalbard. Thankfully, there will never be another global flood — and we are wise to recall how it illustrates God’s holy judgment (as Peter reminds us, in 2nd Peter chapter 3) — it was a one-of-a-kind cataclysm that violently destroyed beach-going (and other terrestrial) dinosaurs, in the polar North and elsewhere, all over on planet Earth.
