TYLER (KYTX) - 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.
“I've never heard of anything about that from over there, I'm surprised he found it there,” Taylor said.
For days, Wayne and his aunt Sharon have been combing through this dirt with the help of some neighborhood kids.
“I just take my toothbrush and work on it until we get it,” Wayne’s aunt Sharon Givan said.
And send pictures off to Taylor.
“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.
For a man who loved dinosaurs as a kid, Propst says this couldn't be any cooler.
“Now all I got to do is go in front of my aunt's house and pick up something from back when it all began. I don't even have to search anymore,” Propst said.
For the record, we have not independently verified if the rocks are in fact historic.
