Why are sea shells found on the top of mt everest?

When they climbed Mt Everest in 1953, Edmund Hillary got up to the 26 000 foot level and he began to find sea shells. Some stuff they found up there were Petrified clams and Sea shells packed together. Millions of them. Interesting thing about these clams, that are even found of top of Mt Everest, the clams are petrified and dead, I believe, and closed. Well you can walk along the beach and pick up a whole train load of sea shells but you hardly ever find a matched pair. And you never find them closed. The only way this could happen is these had to be buried alive. ..... How do you get these on top of Mt Everest? In case you don't know, Mt Everest is a little ways from the beach. Secondly, clams don't climb mountains very good. So what happened to these petrified claims anyway? Some places they are ten feet thick in the world. ..... Well the only way I can think of this to happen is for an awful lot of clams to be buried instantly. I think during the Flood of Noah ..... What do you think?

Best Answer: noah 100%


Is this supposed to be a resource for people to learn from or one that doesn't bother to fact check answers against reality?

Conclusion: Yahoo "answers" is useless garbage and totally unreliable.

No wonder America is so DUMB

Yahoo answers has never pretended to check facts. 'Best'answer' means 'answer with the most upvotes'.

So reality is up for vote?

I didn't see any disclaimers ... "the views expressed here are those of the people posting them?"
