First Vascular Plants in mid-Silurian

But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.

(2 Corinthians 3:14) NKJV

The first vascular plants that were buried in Noah’s flood are on top of the beach sand which is full of dead scorpions because they were growing in the dunes inland of the beach.

The description above is an interesting phrase because of how much meaning can be packed into 5 words. It’s completely transparent when you see that the veil has been lifted. The implication in the word “first” is that these plants are the simplest form of vascular plant and represent the earliest part of that groups development. However, the full range of biological development of vascular plants, from simple to complex, is still alive on Earth today and any of them could be buried in sediment at any time. That one word is an inductive rationalization of circumstantial evidence designed to establish the premise that biological evolution is simple-to-complex.

The fossils look very similar to some of the kinds of plants which live in coastal wetland habitats today. Artistic depictions of the Silurian period tend to be of coastal habitats, the plants are shown in proximity to bodies of water and it’s referred to as a “time of bogs“. It’s not a period of time, it’s the buried remains of the habitats which were closest to the ocean.
