Scuba divers have discovered a primeval underwater forest off the coast of Alabama.

The Bald Cypress forest was buried under ocean sediments, protected in an oxygen-free environment for more than 50,000 years, but was likely uncovered by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, said Ben Raines, one of the first divers to explore the underwater forest and the executive director of the nonprofit Weeks Bay Foundation, which researches estuaries.

The forest contains trees so well-preserved that when they are cut, they still smell like fresh Cypress sap, Raines said.

The stumps of the Cypress trees span an area of at least 0.5 square miles (0.8 kilometers), several miles from the coast of Mobile, Ala., and sit about 60 feet (18 meters) below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

Wow!

Awesome!

And that forest is only 50,000 years old...

Its unbelievable how things continuously change so much...

Just imagine the earth is around 4,500,000,000 years old...

But our 75-100 year long human lifetimes are relatively so very short in comparison...

In reality we know almost nothing about who and what came and went long before we arrived...

God created the earth to be old and put the bones there to test our faith.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

A kind and loving god created the heavens and the earth and then fell asleep or died or converted to evil while auschwitz was being built and put into operation...

The entire earth is like some kind of gigantic cannibalistic self serve restaurant where only murdered meat is served...

God or Lucifer or Evil Aliens created that?
