    The last sentence I wrote this morning needs clarification. In the YEC
    model with everything being created in six days, and death beginning
    after the Fall, the Burgess shale fossils, and all other fossils, are
    reckoned to be post-Fall. Therefore, if fossiliferous units exist below
    the Alberta reefs, and if those underlying units are considered to be
    Flood deposits, then the overlying reefs must either be Flood deposits,
    or, if they are pre-Flood overlying Flood deposits, then the reef rocks
    must have been thrust over the Flood deposits after the Flood.

    Hope that helps.

    "Ordovician" reef rocks over the more recent "Cambrian" Flood deposits.
