DINOSAUR AND HUMAN TRACKS IN THE SAME STRATA!
The Palauxy 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
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!
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
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
