Man finds fossils in front yard that he believes are from Noah's flood, evolution denying fossil "expert" confirms it without actually seeing the evidence. Go ahead guess which state this is.

Courtesy of CBS 19: 

One East Texas man believes he found fossils from Noah’s flood and a self-proclaimed fossil expert says he's right. 

“From Noah’s flood to my front yard, how much better can it get,” Wayne Propst said. 

Propst is stunned. He was helping his aunt lay some dirt outside her home in Tyler when he found this. 

“What's really interesting to me is we're talking about the largest catastrophe known to man, the flood that engulfed the entire world,” Propst said. 

He called up self-proclaimed fossil expert Joe Taylor who confirmed that what Propst found is in fact from the time of Noah’s ark and he says finding those fossils in Tyler is rare.

Did you guess Texas? Because seriously you should always guess Texas, with Florida as your back up.

By the way this is what it says on this "fossil experts" website:

I’m Joe Taylor, the director and curator of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. If you like fossils, dinosaur digs and other old things you have come to the right place. Check the news reports. We want to show you why we do not believe that the evolution theory or the millions of years concept is good science.

Well it's a good thing he keeps an open mind, don't you think?

"Hey if you want to hear some complete bullshit about fossils, from a guy who hates actual science, then give me call. Reinforcement of your superstitious beliefs guaranteed."

This is what this Propst guy's aunt had to say about the "discovery":

“To think that like he says that we have something in our yard that dated back to when God destroyed the earth. I mean, how much better could anything be,” Givan said.

And at the end of the video on the CBS 19 website Propst himself makes this comment:

"Who else can say they have a front yard full of Noah's dirt?" 

Look I know that Texans get really snippy with me for pointing out all of the morons living in their state, but come on! How could I resist this story?

    I grew up in Texas and love the state which will eventually turn around. However, those folks in East Texas, where Tyler is, are a whole different kind of crazy. Not much hope there.

      I only live about 35 miles from Tyler, a Democrat and hope this state will turn around during my lifetime. These folks are nuckle draggers and probably support Trump so anything is possible. Noahs Arc, haha, really.
      Hell im gonna grab my shovel and prove those nut cases wrong.(shit, what do I do if I find something).

    Then again, it is 2016; there are probably more idiots just like them than I dare to imagine.

    Well, if the flood truly engulfed the entire earth, I would imagine every other yard on earth would also be full of Noah's dirt.

    What BS and ignorance this guy and all the others display. And, the sad thing is their votes count the same as ours do. How sad.

    Years ago I had a real fight with a German born and raised friend who believed that people with more education should have more votes. I was furious at that notion. Funny thing -- now, maybe not so much.

      I'd agree, except that Cruz and the wackos somehow were awarded law degrees, so they would get more votes. I still want to know how anyone checks on people like the Romneys and McCains with multiple homes in multiple states. Couldn't they absentee vote anywhere they pay property taxes? And to think, Dems wanted a national ID for voting, and the GOP shot it down.

      Yeah, I find it funny that republicans argue that young college-educated Americans (i.e. critical thinking liberals) don't have enough life experience to vote, but are perfectly happy to get this idiot's vote

      Of course politicians want the stupid vote. Who easier to brainwash, control, underpay and keep poor, than a bunch of people who believe they have Noah's dirt in their front yard.

    Apparently, EVERYBODY can say that because, according to him, there was a flood that engulfed the entire world.

  8. I'm pretty sure Joe Taylor probably sells bait and fish sandwiches on the side of his "fossil" museum and has painting of humans riding dinosaurs.

    And as far as poor Wayne is concerned . . Truly, we have to put more money into public education and stop letting the only school some people attend be Sunday school.

    Paleontologists agree that for something to be considered a "fossil", it must date back to a minimum 10,000 years. So.....if this idiot and his so-called expert believe that the earth is only 6,000 years old, when exactly do they think this supposed flood occurred?
    Honestly, there are always so many holes in these Xtianist theories that they might as well be made of swiss cheese.

      The "bone museum/bait shop/gas station/convenience store" thing reminds me of a Carl Hiaasen book where one of the characters was a crazy lady from somewhere in the middle of Florida who had a "road stain Jesus" in the middle of her country road.

      She'd go out there every morning wearing a wedding dress and sit by her "Jesus stain" and greet those who came to see it, and sell them cold drinks and snacks.

    I do think Noah lived in the Middle East, and even if the Earth was flooded, nothing would have made its way to four feet underground in Tyler, Texas. Sorry, bub.

    "Who else can say they have a front yard full of Noah's dirt?"

    The world is an amazing place!

    It is populated with billions and billions of amazing people and it has many amazing places and things. If you go all around the world you will find many different cultures and ways of living. One of the most curious things is how people with different skills and beliefs organize themselves into modern cultures and economies. They do this to live happy lives with their friends and families and to advance humankind.

    One of the things the extraterrestrial visitors are very interested in is the diversity of ideas on this little planet of ours. Texas is one of those places where people with differing beliefs and skills try to work together for the common good and to advance mankind’s exploration of the universe. While there are a lot of these Texans there are not billions of Texans yet (but they perform their various mating rituals like rabbits- especially on weekends and whenever there is alcohol present!), but the trend is definitely toward a Texan population sonic boom!

    There is a distinctive yin and yang to Texas. Houston has the Johnson Space Center which is helping all around the entire world explore the wonders on the universe. Houston also has many devoutly religious fools who continue to believe that the world is flat and that it 6000 years old because bible! They also believe in fairy tales such as Noah’s Ark and that Jesus walked with dinosaurs. I’ve actually met a few of the back when I was in meatspace. SMH!

    Sadly, the world is populated with a certain percentage of what we used to call low information operators. Here’s the thing. I hope these religious fools NEVER fly on a commercial airplane, because they navigate and determine the shortest route based on the fact that the earth is actually round and not flat. If you fly high enough you can see that the world does visibly curve, and with modern technology like cameras and tv we can sit in our houses and see this for ourselves by looking at the pictures and watching tv. As a matter of fact, some religious leaders used to tell their flocks that man was not meant to fly. Apparently that ark has sailed and I haven’t heard that turd dropped lately.

    I guess they evolved their worries about man flying into moon landing denial. Possibly to avoid admitting that despite what they claim the bible says, man can fly after all. Let me just say that NASA has tried their damnedest to convince these idiots that we did land on the moon and that planets and other terrestrial and extraterrestrial bodies move in predictable ways. Hello Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. DNA and evolution also, too. You could really blow their minds if you start to discuss continents drifting around the world.

    I see that once again one of these Texan low info jackalopes is in the news with his “biblical fossil” discovery. Not surprisingly, he is not the only fool who is excited by this latest (and frequently reoccurring) exercise in mental masturbation. I could try to talk to him about sedimentation processes and what we scientists and properly educated people know about the earth and the universe, but I have better things to do.

    I was sorely tempted to tell Mr. Propst that the “Noah's dirt” surrounding his fossils actually came from stardust created billions and billions of years ago in a star which has since blown up, and that the stellar winds deposited both his flood dirt and every atom in Mr. Propst’s tea bagging bible thumping body on this miniscule insignificant planet of ours. I could have told him that it was a random series of events and not some biblical grand design which organized the life on this planet.

    I have better things to do, and some of these folks are beyond help. I’ll leave Mr. Propst to his yard full of Noah’s dirt and head out into my yard full of stardust. I think I’ll burn a fat one and wait for it to get dark enough to look at some stars. Care to join me?

    Many years ago, I was antiquing in upstate NY. I couldn't find anything I liked, but really wanted a souvenir of the trip. I chose a Herkimer diamond on its' host rock, for just $1! As I was paying for it, I commented that it was certainly the oldest item in the shop. The woman running the register just looked at me like I was a kook or something. Sigh.

      I know it's off topic, but when I first got married, we bought old furniture and reupholstered the living room. Years later, we saved enough money to buy quality pieces and replaced our "junk". The sofa and loveseat we bought for a hundred bucks was worth five grand, had we NOT ripped out the innards and replaced the fabric, as it was we got fifty bucks. Our dining room furniture was a gold mine, we bought a table, eight chairs, a leaf and buffet table. Turned out to be a genuine Duncan Fife, signed and numbered. We made a downpayment on our first home with that windfall. Still kicking myself over that living room set. Get it appraised, folks.

    Men should not indulge their own fantasies, nor become vain in their imaginations and inventions about their yard dirt or fossil "expertise," lest, while they pretend to honor God, they really dishonor Him, and do that which is unworthy of Him.

    I once had a student who claimed his dad proved the flood myth. Something to do with the angle of the fish fossils in the Grand Canyon. Don't laugh -Dad was a nuclear technician who ran the local power plant. Of course that made him an expert on geophysics.

    I think this particular Texan needs a hobby or something. Wonder if he ever went spelunking on his own?
    He's projecting his beliefs of the Noah story to the dirt in front of the house? Does he have any inside info on why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?
