Over the past 13 months and 2000 miles, I’ve traveled by wagon from Canada to Texas asking folks about the Lost Sea, the great body of water that once covered the Great Plains. Where did the marine fossils, like a chunk of coral from landlocked Crosbyton, Texas, come from? And how old are these artifacts – thousands, millions, or ten millions of years?

This week I visited with Joe Taylor, owner of the Mt Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton, Texas, for some answers. Joe is an unabashed Creationist. His museum’s motto is “Digging up the facts of God’s Creation: One fossil at a time.”

Joe feels that when it comes to explaining the Lost Sea, a person “has to look to the Bible for answers” and make up their own mind. Above all, there’s one point Joe wants to get across: the world is 6000 years old, not “millions as the Evolutionists say”.

Noah’s Ark (L) and Joe Taylor

For proof, Joe points toward the Old Testament, how the world was created in 6 days. How with Adam and Eve’s coming, sin swept the world, followed by a Great Flood, in which only Noah, his family and the animals (2 of every unclean and 7 of every clean – including dinosaurs) were saved.

What this means in terms of a time line is this. The world was created 6,000 years ago. The Great Flood, or what I call the Lost Sea, occurred 4,500 years ago. To think the world is any older is “poor science, half science, old science or no science at all”.

And with that, mule Polly head back into the dusty Lost Sea, looking for more clues on its age, origins and the folks that inhabit it today.
