Title: WHOSE FOOTPRINTS?
Post by: jong on September 01, 2004, 09:16:13 pm
i am surprised i don't hear much about what should be one of the most sensational discoveries ever made. that is the layer of ancient alluvial sediment found under the bed of a dried-out texas river sometime in the 1960's or '70's revealing that apparently the footprints of both dinosaur claws and human feet walked together almost simultaneously before the alluvium hardened into rock. the prints are literally side-by-side, as if one was tracking the other or leading the other on a leash!! scientists of course tell us this is impossible as dinosaurs died out tens of millions of years before the first hominid creatures even walked the earth, let alone modern man homo sapiens. yet the footprints are there, together, and have been shown on 'in search of' and 'unsolved mysteries' as well as other mystery programs. i don't  remember seeing them mentioned on any mainstream dinosaur documentaries on pbs or the discovery or a/e channels, but i do know that biblical creationists have made a strong argument among their churches for the authenticity of the prints. my contention is not so much doubt about that for debate, as the conviction that what the prints probably reveal is that sometime in the far distant past when texas was still a lush land large mammals such as the three-toed giant sloth were hunted by modern-type humans, as were the mammoth and mastodon and saber-tooth tiger. it is probably the claw-prints of some such large mammal rather than a giant reptile that the human owner of the other feet was swiftly tracking hot on the trail of. i personally have seen evidence in an ancient indian artifact in the davie, florida museum of archaeology that rhinoceri once inhabited florida and were probably hunted by the human inhabitants. it is a clay figure of what can only be described as a rhino-man, amazingly similar to the villain character in the spider-man comics. i guess there really is nothing new under the sun.
