A Christian foundation recently gave the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., the fossil of a large predatory dinosaur similar to a Tyrannosaurus rex, which offers evidence of the Old Testament global flood. The fossil is believed to be one of the four best-preserved Allosaurus skulls ever discovered, according to a Creation Museum press release. The museumâ€™s new dinosaur, affectionately called Ebenezer, probably stood 10-feet high and 30-feet long and had teeth averaging over four inches. Fifty-three of those teeth are still in place.
Unearthed in Colorado, the fossilâ€™s well-preserved condition and the position of the skull and spine suggests it was killed under sudden, catastrophic conditions. It was on its side as though it had been knocked over and rapidly buried in mud. The large layer of sedimentary rock surrounding it indicates dispersion by flood water covering the entire continent,...
Very interesting! In the tops of some of the mountains of Arratt (sp?), and others as you all have mentioned, clam shells, trilobites, etc have been found in droves. Amazing. I don't need the proof, but it's always fun to hear and see our distant past; the biblical record verified.
I went to the creation museum in Kentucky once. I was pretty young, wasn't sure what it was all about, but it was fun for sure. I would like to visit another since I've gotten a hair older and smarter. Creation ministry international (CMI) has become one of my favorite and go to resources for reasonable science.
Just as an FYI, in Glendive, Montana, there is a great dino museum and the director is a young earth Creationist. He's done a number of video interviews with Ham and Davis and others. It's a pretty great place if you're in this neck of the woods!
Also, there's a mountain in western Montana called Black Butte. It's only accessible for maybe two months out of the year because it's so high and there's always snow there. But for the intrepid mountaineer, you can climb it and find tropical fossils - shells, plants, fish galore! Now how else would they have gotten there...? Our kids LOVE the Johnathan Park series and I have to admit my husband and I learned a lot (and were entertained) by listening to these radio drama's in regards to how the flood of Noah is where we find our fossil record. Great tool for those just wanting to learn more about all the pieces of the great flood, along with their kids.
If that is true (I don't really know where the majority of fossils are found), it would be an interesting topic of research. Perhaps it has something to do with fault lines. I will have to find someone to ask next time I am at the Creation Museum.
Interesting. I wonder why fossils, both big and small tend to be found in the midwest, California, and China? I haven't looked into it, but it seems that these are at least where I hear about major finds.
