Aggregating Skeptical Thought

Stuck between a rock and a … coal mine

News story on NewScientist, Huge fossilised rainforest found in coal mine. I have one problem and one concern about this article. The problem I have is that the article credits “researchers” as having discovered this rainforest on the ceiling of a coal mine. Seems to me that maybe a miner is the one who found it since paleobiologists aren’t in the habit of strolling around coal mines, maybe I’m wrong.

The concern I have is the inevitable “proof of The Flood” story this sentence will generate:

…when a large earthquake or other catastrophic event caused the entire region to suddenly drop below sea level.
