|New fossil footprint may prove man lived with dinosaurs|

This link from my friend Tony. The Paluxy river, located near Glen Rose, Texas, is home to the longest, uninterrupted dinosaur trails ever discovered. Alongside this dinosaur trail lies a trail of fossilized human footprints. Creationists have argued that this evidence shows that mankind existed at the same time as the dinosaurs. Evolutionists teach that most of the dinosaurs died out roughly 65 million years ago, and that mankind has only evolved from apes over the last 4 million years. But evolutionists are still undecided as to what actually caused the dinosaurs to suddenly die out. Creationists believe that man was created on the same day as all land animals - including dinosaurs (Job 40:15), and that the many dinosaur fossils we find in the world today are a result of the flood. There is much evidence to prove that dinosaurs did not die out 65 million years ago, including accounts of dinosaur-like animals in the Bible (Job 40-41), in the Doomsday Book and other historical literature. Incan artefacts and aboriginal cave drawings have also been found to contain depictions of what we would now call dinosaurs. But until now there has been little paleontological evidence to prove that man and dinosaurs actually co-existed. A fossilized dinosaur footprint, recovered from the Paluxy riverbed in July 2000, may be set to change all that. A man by the name of Alvis Delk had been hunting for Indian artefacts near Glen Rose, Texas. He was walking along the creek when a pile of rocks by the riverbank caught his eye. Upon further examination he discovered a dinosaur imprint on the limestone rock. He excavated the rock and took it home to add to his collection. Delk suffered a fall eight months ago, resulting in several operations, a long recovery process and expensive medical bills. So he decided to sell some of his dinosaur artefacts to the Creation Museum in Glen Rose, Texas. As he was cleaning his fossilized dinosaur print, he discovered there was a second footprint embedded in the rock. It was the footprint of a man. Not only did the rock contain a dinosaur and human footprint, but the dinosaur footprint intersected the human one, showing that the human footprint was made first and proving that dinosaurs and man co-existed.
Quote: "Baugh said the fossil is the proof he has been searching many years for. He acquired the stone from Delk and has it in safekeeping. He was confident after his initial inspections of the stone that the specimen is genuine. He took it to a medical lab at Glen Rose Medical Center, where he said 800 X-rays were performed in a CT scan procedure. Baugh said the scans prove that the impressions are real and could not have been carved or etched into the stone. "The compression lines, the density features, do show, and there is no way to fake that," he said. "It is possible to carve a track in limestone. But there is no way to compress the material in the rock under the track. That is absolutely impossible. That's why the CAT scans are so important." He said the scans demonstrate the human footprint was made "during locomotion. That’s very important. That distribution is shown here. Compression is in the right place under both prints. Density. Compression, distribution. The density factor is there. Weight distribution. Forward locomotion, rocking of the foot." He also noted how the dinosaur's impression pushed up material from the human print and altered its shape in the area of the intrusion.
Not only does this find completely discredit the theory of evolution, but it shows the Bible to be what it claims to be, the inerrant Word of God. Evolutionists have used fraud and deceit to support their theory over the years, with Piltdown man, Nebraska man, the Coelacanth and many other dubious claims. But the Word of God has been proven again and again to be one hundred percent accurate when it comes to history, archaeology, biology, physics, medical science and much more. As the Lord said to Nicodemus, "If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?", John 3:12. If the Bible can be fully trusted when it speaks of earthly things, how much more should we take heed when it speaks of heavenly things? Jesus Christ is the Creator (John 1:10). The Creator desires to have a relationship with His creation. But just like Adam in the garden of Eden, your sins have separated between you and your God (Isaiah 59:2). God sacrificed an innocent animal in order to provide a covering for our first parents' nakedness and sin. God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to die upon a cross, so He might provide forgiveness for your sins (John 3:16). Why don't you trust in Him for salvation today.
