Until creationists can come up with an even remotely plausible scenario for the details in the fossil record observed by people like this student they should not be expected to be taken seriously. They claim that a global flood is a better explanation for the observed data. However, their claims about the fossil record don’t mean much to anyone that has experience with it. A viable hypothesis has to be able to accommodate new data that are being generated each and every day. An ancient Earth with a dynamically evolving land surface can easily accommodate all the characteristics observed in these clam shrimp fossils.
