    I posted privately to Don the following URL references concerning
    Creationary interpretation of the reefs. Here they are again.

    These two are found at the Geoscience Research Institute web page.

    Hodges, "Fossil Binding in Modern and Ancient Reefs"

    Roth, "Fossil Reefs and Time"

    The following is a comprehensive list of On-line Creationary articles.

    The following, from my categorized list of articles
    (, might be of interest:


    "I have been shown that, without Bible history, geology can prove nothing. Relics found
    in the earth do give evidence of a state of things differing in many respects from the
    present. But the time of their existence, and how long a period these things have been in
    the earth, are only to be understood by Bible history. It may be innocent to conjecture
    beyond Bible history, if our suppositions do not contradict the facts found in the sacred
    Scriptures. But when men leave the word of God in regard to the history of creation, and
    seek to account for God's creative works upon natural principles, they are upon a
    boundless ocean of uncertainty. Just how God accomplished the work of creation in six
    literal days, he has never revealed to mortals. His creative works are just as
    incomprehensible as his existence."  Ellen Gould Harmon White,  1864
