John Winston: I'm not a Creationist

Did Humans And Dinosaurs Co-exist? Two years ago an organization of which I am a member sponsored a person called Don Patton to speak. We all enjoyed him but he is a person who believes that the Earth is 6,000 to 8,000 years old. These people are referred to as Creationists. He knows that I believe that the Earth is about 4.7 billion years old. Here is some information about a long time ago when dinosaurs may have been around and also humans were here.

Mesozoic Art Sparks Controversy Larger than the Dinosaurs Themselves! Did the human race ever co-exist with the dinosaur race? To many, the answer is clear: "Yes!" they'd say. Surprised? Naturally, it may seem a bit absurd -- in fact it may seem a lot absurd -- but there is more evidence than you probably realize, supporting that dinosaurs may not have been alone on the earth during the Mesozoic era over 250 million years ago. The evidence is there, but if it is credible enough to believe. well, that is for you to decide. A picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case it may be worth even more. Very clear human depictions of dinosaurs were found in a cave in Peru, providing the man/dinosaur coexistence theory with most of its relevant, striking evidence. Dr. Javier Cabrera is primarily responsible for these amazing finds, stumbling across them while searching for ancient Nasca artwork in tombs near his father's old home. Dr. Cabrera indeed found much art: the typical and expected stone carvings of humans, their accomplishments, and their interactions with each other. But to Dr. Cabrera's dismay, he also found several carvings of dinosaurs: a clearly depicted stegosaurus, a triceratops, and even diplodocus-like dinosaurs with dermal frills. In order for Dr. Cabrera to see the carved stones more clearly, he rubbed shoe polish over them, taking note of every line and detail, for which their basis is truly remarkable. The reason these findings are as unique as they are rare is because humans did not even coin the word 'dinosaur' until the 1800's, long after these drawings are thought to have been made. It would be shocking to discover that ancient humans were aware of the existence of dinosaurs, not to mention if they saw them in person, or lived among them! But what Dr. Cabrera claims is that in order for the ancient Peruvians to know what the dinosaurs looked like, they had to have seen them. Perhaps most notable about Dr. Cabrera's find is that the humans are pictured interacting with the live, animated dinosaurs. Also found in the tombs in Peru by the same man, Dr. Javier Cabrera, were several textiles (which appeared to look somewhat like burial blankets or tapestries) of the ancient Nasca culture. They too had graphic designs of what is thought to be dinosaurs: the teeth, claws, long snout, and tail served as lucid hints. The textiles were draped over ancient coffins, perhaps implying that the deceased lost his life to the rambunctious reptiles. And if the stone carvings and textiles are not convincing enough, Dr. Cabrera found one final artifact: pottery. The pottery, although much less blatant, is also adorned in what appears to be dinosaur-inspired designs. The pottery factually dates to over a thousand years, making it the only artifact scientists find worth pursuing. Perhaps by now you are a little skeptical about the whole coexistence theory: everything you have previously been taught about dinosaurs contradicts everything you are hearing now. If so, consider this. Almost everything we know about our ancient world is based on inferences made from fossil remains. So why should this next scenario be any different? On September 9, 2000 geologist Don Patton (JW He is the very intelligent man who I was talking about at the first of this article. He will be giving a lecture series in Sonora, Calif. during the time of May 5th through May 17, 2002.) and representatives from the Metroplex Institute Of Origin Science began a month long excavation of what they thought were fossil dinosaur footprints. Upon first observing the tracks, the team of scientists determined that they were the longest set found in North America. They were extremely deep and well preserved in their Paluxy River bed near Glen Rose, Texas. What the scientists did not immediately realize, however, was the existence of human footprints in the very row of tracks. The prints were easily looked over at first because they were not nearly as deep-set as the dinosaur's. However, before the excavation was complete, the scientists designated Paluxy River bed as a "hot spot" for human/dinosaur coexistence evidence. If you are still not convinced, I offer one more consideration. In Glen Rose, Texas, near the Paluxy River bed "hot spot," a fossilized human handprint was found. The hand is so detailed that even the thumbnail can be deciphered deep in the sedimentary rock. The age of the limestone was determined to be nearly 110 million years old, thus coinciding with the age of dinosaurs during the Middle Cretaceous. Several other human footprints and handprints have been found in Mesozoic sedimentary rock in states such as Texas, New Mexico, and the Dakotas. So, did humans actually ever coexist with dinosaurs? It certainly is an ongoing, mind-boggling controversy to which there may never be an answer. In the mean time, scientists continue to search for clues that would lead them to believe dinosaurs and humans once fought for global domination.

So to sum it all up I'm not a Creationist. I don't totally believe that everything came by way of evolution. I believe that all people were seeded her by higher beings and I believe the B-ble when it says the sons of G-d saw the daughters of men and mated with them (etc, etc. in so many words).
