Worms devour bones


Two [so-called] ‘primitive’ species of marine worms have been found which feast exclusively on the bones of dead whales.

Researchers say that the bone-devouring worms have existed almost as long as whales, which [they say] evolved about 50 million years ago.

  • Science, 30 July 2004, pp. 668–671.

The challenge now for evolutionists is to explain why there are so many beautifully preserved fossil bones, obviously not devoured by these worms. Answer: the global Flood and its aftermath would have provided the necessary conditions, as explained in Dead whales: telling tales? Creation 26(4):10–14, 2004.
