    Hell Creek rock formation in Montana has both shark and T Rex fossils.
    Seems to lean toward rather than against the Noah epic.

    The area used to be ocean, so why wouldnt we expect to see fossilized sea and land creatures, even before some mythical global flood is needed to explain.

    Reading the article is to be recommended before trying to pound a square peg in a round hole:

    Until now, it seemed that the body of Sue was deposited in a lake that had been created by a nearly-dried-up river. It was thought to be a relatively self-contained habitat. But the presence of a shark species only known in ocean environments indicates that the river was likely connected to the sea, allowing Galagadon and other species to swim inland.

    Cool story.
    -how did they test the pinhead size parts of teeth to show they were from a shark? Oh it just looked similar.
    -sharks live in salt water, how did they live in the fresh water stream/river? Oh I see. They stretched it that back then they could live in either.
    -how did... Yeah I could throw a million questions into those assumptions.

    While it's interesting, it's all assumptions. It wouldn't pass 13.

    You missed the point. The T-rex wasn't an ocean creature, the shark was. They were found side by side. How did that happen?
    Used to be ocean? If it used to be ocean then the pin head size shark teeth and T-rex sue wouldn't be side by side. The shark would be deeper buried in my opinion.

    You realize, of course, Im not stupid enough to think the T rex was an ocean creature. But probably not since you apparently did think this. And a body of water that was there at some point doesnt exclude the possibility of a land creature being found where the water was. Between slips and predators its probably fairly common.
    Too me, it seems youre trying to argue a point just to argue.

    Hell Creek Formation, division of rocks in North America dating to the end of the Cretaceous Period some 65.5 million years ago. Named for exposures studied on Hell Creek, near Jordan, Montana, it occurs in eastern Montana and portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

    The Western Interior Seaway (also called the Cretaceous Seaway, the Niobraran Sea, the North American Inland Sea, and the Western Interior Sea) was a large inland sea that existed during the mid- to late Cretaceous period as well as the very early Paleogene, splitting the continent of North America into two landmasses, Laramidia to the west and ...

    Some sharks today swim upriver in fresh water. Check out the bull shark. There are well documented cases of these sharks attacking people a good ways inland in fresh water.

    When I was still diving I collected some huge shark's teeth from the Edisto River. Some of them are three inches across.

    In any case land and sea creatures fossilized in close proximity is consistent with the flood epoch.
    We also see a high mix of dinosaur and mammals buried in the gobi dessert
