Quote: Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519)

If you should say that the shells were empty and dead when carried by the waves, I reply that where the dead ones went the living ones were not far distant. And if the shells had been in the turbid water of Deluge, they would be found mixed up and separated amid the mud and not in regular layers as we see them in our time.

Palaios vol.1, p. 311

In short, Leonardo said that a flood did not explain the rocks he'd seen.
