There was - no longer, though, I think - a Creation Museum in Crosbyton, Texas that had a selection of fossils. The had dinosaur, mammoth - the usual suspects - and a human femur that was about 120 cm long. Perfectly proportioned just like your femur or mine, but from back when there were "giants in the earth."
At least one grade school class from here went there on a field trip burning taxpayer-purchased gasoline in a taxpayer-purchased school-bus.

Re: A failure of reading comprehension
If you calculate it not for the surface of the globe but for the surface of all the land including the sea beds you'd come up with a lot more area.
How is that? Where would more area come from, other than the tiny wrinkles from mountains and valleys, both on land and under water?

Re: Steve Austin Nautiloid Article
Yeah - "cuz I said so" would not fly, even here in the oil industry, where we are sloppy as hell with references/peer review.

Re: Steve Austin Nautiloid Article
The sedimentary layers themselves ought to be regarded as evidence of the Flood...
Including, of course, the Coconino sandstone, which is full of crossbeds that incontrovertibly show that they could not have been deposited under water. You can't get dunes that steep under water, Faith. You can try the experiment yourself in your kitchen.

Re: Steve Austin Nautiloid Article
Faith, I challenge you: get a cup of sand. Pile it up under the surface of a pan of water to get a cone with its sides at an angle of greater than fifteen degrees from horizontal. Then get a spider to climb it, while under water, and leave footprints.
I will send you a cup of sand, a Pyrex loaf pan, and a gallon of water if you wish. And a protractor - but you are on your own for the spider.

Re: Steve Austin Nautiloid Article
And the next wave not disturbing the footprints? You are my age or so - remember "Love Letters in the Sand?" Footprints work like that, too.
Gigantic waves are going to align nautiloid shells instead of shattering them? How does that work?
ALL the evidence, Faith. Not just one shred at a time. Including >15 degree angles of repose for underwater sand. You pick the grain shape...
