DINOSAUR AND HUMAN TRACKS
Is it possible that dinosaurs and humans lived on earth at the same time?
Dinosaur tracks and human tracks have been found together in the same rock strata in the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas.
The Paluxy River in Glen Rose, Texas, is a rapidly flowing river that runs through the middle of Dinosaur Valley State Park. The park is a popular visitor's site but most people that visit the park are not aware that human tracks have also been found in the same rock formation as the popular dinosaur tracks!
Stan Taylor is shown in this picture as he points to human tracks. When he began his excavation in 1969, only two track could be seen in the Paluxy River Bed.
Stan followed the tracks back under the river bank and seven more very human like tracks were exposed. The process involved removing tons of limestone overburden which effectively eliminated the possibility that the tracks were carved into the rock by some prankster.
The tracks have become known as the Taylor Trail and it normally appears in the riverbed under water.
The drought of 1999 revealed not only the human trail but a set of three-toed dinosaur tracks which can be seen crossing at an angle of approximately 30 degrees.
It is obvious that the human and dinosaur tracks were made at the same time. The conclusion is that either man lived over 65 million years ago when, according to evolutionists, dinosaurs became extinct . . . or dinosaurs lived not too long ago at the same time as humans. In either event the theory of evolution is in serious doubt because of these remarkable tracks recorded in stone!
FIRST FINDINGS: It wasn't until one of the worst flash floods recorded that would put Glen Rose into the history books. In 1908, the Paluxy River rose to an astounding 27 feet. Little did residents of this small town realize what had been lurking underneath the limestone layers of the Paluxy. As the water receded mysterious, three-toed tracks appeared!
Young George Adams, brother of Earnest "Bull" Adams, is credited with discovering the tracks in 1908. They were originally thought to be giant "turkey" tracks and therefore of no significant importance. George Adams reported his findings to his local high school teacher, Robert E. McDonald who identified them as belonging to dinosaurs. This would later be recognized as theropod tracks, those of a carnivorous dinosaur. In 1932, Charlie Moss of Glen Rose discovered the first known sauropod tracks, commonly referred to then as "Brontosaurs" tracks. However, it wasn't until Roland T. Bird, paleontologist for the American Museum of Natural History in New York, visited the area in the fall of 1938 that would put Glen Rose on the paleontological map and eventually bring his findings to national attention in 1954 with an article featured in National Geographic magazine.Could the human tracks have been made much later?
Suppose you saw several footprints in a sidewalk and someone said, "This print was made ten years after the one beside it." Would you buy that? No way! We understand that tracks in mud do not last long. To be preserved, they must be solidified rapidly, within days. Once the material hardens, the tracks are preserved and footprints will no longer leave an impression. Furthermore, exposed tracks weather rapidly. Therefore, we know the next layer was deposited immediately and rapidly.
