Yet fossils survive for millions of years?
I don’t believe you understand.
Many fossils are rock formations. Sedimentary stone forms around a portion of an animal’s remains, which is usually a bone. The bone often doesn’t last, but the rock does.
Bones can also become petrified, essentially becoming stone themselves, although the most common form of petrified organic matter is petrified wood. Bones can be preserved without petrification too. Teeth are more common. But even feathers and skin fragments have been found without any petrification. All these results are completely dependent on local conditions, such as the amounts and types of minerals present in the ground water.
A wooden ship laying on the bottom of shallow ocean water, however, tends to get eaten. There are too many worms and bacteria living in seawater that find wood to be very tasty.
Yes, of course fossils survive millions (and billions) of years, they’re rocks. The organic materials were substituted with minerals, which is why they’re generally incomplete and rare.l.
This thread isn’t about the Exodus, or the Sea of Passage, so knock it off.
The Med is sea water, the Gulf of Aqaba is sea water. You have a legitimate question.
