Response Article
This article (No new fossils are being formed (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CC360:

Few or no new fossils are being formed. Fossils must have been produced by radically different conditions (a global flood) in the past.

CreationWiki response:

Both of these sources are 30-plus years old, so it is no surprise that some of their content is out of date. Modern examples of fossilization have been a great benefit to creation science, by providing practical data on the rates and causes of fossilization.
