Giant Human Fossil Foot Prints

Friday, January 4th, 2008

Pinkoski_Giant_Footprints06.jpgIn 1976 famed anthropologist Mary Leaky discovered 70 human footprints in stone in Tanzania known as the Laetoli tracks. Leaky felt they looked like they were made by modern human beings, but that created a problem. The depressions left by our ancestors were in a stratum dated at 3.6 million years. No modern human could have laid down that track since we were not around yet according to evolution.

What happens when evidence doesn’t support a theory?

In spite of Mary Leaky’s declaration of a modern look to the prints, notice what happens when evidence seems to contradict the evolutionary model. Enter the scientists, scrutinizing the prints (as they should) but looking for an alternative explanation one that will.  Some said the prints resembled a humanoid like creature,. Others thought the prints were from another creature altogether. In the end they concluded that a type of Lucy – half man, half monkey like being were responsible for these tracks. Phew! Evolution was safe again – end of story.

But could these several million year old imprints in stone simply be as they appear – from a modern human? To the scientific community it’s unthinkable and unacceptable. Why? Because they would have to conclude that:
A.) Modern man is much older than we have thought

B.) or that our dating techniques are faulty.

Either way, there is a big problem for scientists.  So…”interpretation of the evidence” then becomes an important tool that often comes to their rescue.

This is not the first set of prints that have attempted to shake up the evolutionary apple cart. The Taylor Track, Burdick Track, Zapata Track and more all are begging to dethrone evolutions iron grip on the answer to the human origins question  “How did we arrive to where we are today?” Did we evolve over millions of years through environmental pressures and positive mutations? Were our ancestors alien like creatures from outer space, with advanced genetics and technology who assisted our race? Or are we the product of special creation as outlined in Genesis? These footprints stamped in time help solve this ancient mystery. (more…)

Are Creationists are “Idiots”?

Origins “Hot Potato” and Creationists are “Idiots”

One very interesting thing to notice in the origins issue is the tremendous volatility of this topic. The very existence of such hostility indicates what???  I will leave it you to postulate why it is that everyone is so unwilling to let the other side think the way they do.  But does one side seem to have more of a need to suppress the other? Is one side hotter under the collar than the other? And if so why?

Why can’t this issue be comparable to: “What kind of ice cream do you like? I like chocolate. Oh, I prefer strawberry.” Why is it that when I Google “Creationists are Idiots“ that the’re no lack for responses. But when I google “Evolutionists are idiots“…nothing?

By NO means am I saying that there are not hotheaded creationists.  I have seen at least one for myself and it’s never pretty when someone belittles another.   But from even a cursory examination, there seems a weighted tendency here.

One such website says, “But creationism is for idiots, a pathetic, blinkered, morally and intellectually bankrupt substitution for thought, one that presents a sad, limited view of the universe.”

Another more polite website says, “Despite massive scientific corroboration for evolution, roughly half of all Americans believe that God created humans within the last 10,000 years.  This widespread refusal to accept evolution can drive some academics into a fury. I’ve heard biologists call anti-evolutionists “idiots,” “lunatics”…. and worse. But the question remains: How do we explain the mass public’s stubborn resistance to Darwinism?”

This is not an article to tell you how or what to think why there is such volatility within this topic. I simply want you to look for it next time you enter or observe a “debate” between the philosophies.  And ask yourself, no matter what your belief, “Why does what the other person says, matter so much to me?”

World Largest Mastodon is “Lone Star”

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

Unearthed from a Texan gravel bed in 2000 and painstakingly restored by bone digger Joe Taylor of the Mount Blanco Museum This creature is huge!  And just to give you an idea how massive this prehistoric mammal was –  imagine an elephant of today. About 9-10 feet at the shoulder 4-6 tons.

Ok get ready to compare this record breaking pacaderm at 14 feet at the shoulder, 10-12 tons and 33 feet long from its 10 foot long tusks to tail. That is one big beast that scientists say roamed all over the United States prior to its extinction.

Next time you walk past 75 State St. in the village of Phoenix, NY, take a peek into the large picture window and get ready for a breath-taking surprise.

Is Genesis an Historical Account or a Fable?

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

Are the first 10 chapters of Genesis historically valid?  The topics to explore this question that we will be reporting on are Noah’s Ark, Giants Humans, Ooparts (out of place artifacts), Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils.

Noah’s Ark
People are fascinated with this topic.  Are the evolutionists interested as well? Would Noah’s Ark found prove Genesis 7?

A group of evolutionist bloggers were asked, “What if a 600-foot wood boat, carbon dated to 5,000 years, were found atop Mount Ararat Turkey just where the Bible states it is, would that be proof enough?”  Their response was a resounding, “NO!” and they continued, “It only proves that a giant boat is atop of a mountain, period.” I asked myself, Does it really? Well, technically they are correct. However, what would such a stupendous find like that really mean?

 

Giant Humans
Another proof I believe is finding and displaying giant human remains. I’m talking about the over 10 foot tall kind. The Bible indicates we started 6,000 years ago tall and strong and have trimmed down thru environmental de-evolution since. I believe fossilized evidence of a skull 36 inches in circumference would build a case for the creation account found in Genesis. But the critics still maintain that this only proves that one or some humans were of extraordinary size. Nothing more. But again I have to ask, what does a giant human really mean? Does it again point to Genesis or evolution?

 

Ancient technology
Anytime you dig up something too advanced for the time it was found in, to me enforces the idea that man before and after the flood had enormous intellects and sadly dumbed down over the last 4500 years.

When anything odd or advanced is unearthed, the fragments of ancient technological wonders have been assigned by some kind of alien intervention, but most dismiss these artifacts altogether. What does it all mean?

Conclusion
When you begin to add it all up: Giant People, Noahs Ark, Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils, does it seem to suggest a monkey-like creature with stone tools? Or does it fit better with world of genius giants wiped out by a caticlismic flood and then to rise again in prominence leaving behind evidences we see today of their greatness only to after lose it’s almost super-natural abilities by succeding generations who did not inherit these qualities?  If the first few pages of Genesis, a book found in the Old Testament, is an accurate historical record of our beginnings, then we have a grand adventure awaiting us to explore.

Pedro Mountain Mummy Reward Has Been Removed

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

In 2005 a $10,000 Reward for Pedro Mountain Mummy appeared in headlines in the news around the world.  The AP story circulated as their readers were introduced to a little known, little man identified with the Wyoming mountain range he was discovered in 1932.

Paleo-anthropology is a fascinating subject where piecing together the skulls and artifacts allows us a peek into the history of mankind. Pedro was a bit of an anomaly. Facts are, Pedro was a mummified human and only 14″ tall!  Many scientists who examined the mini-mummy were divided. Anthropologist groups said Pedro was a diseased baby. But medical doctors and radiologists thought Pedro was a full-grown adult. To make matters worse he was stolen in 1950 and not heard of since.

Unless this mini-man surfaces, the testing necessary to discover what he and solve this mystery will never come to be. So the Museum offered $10,000 reward for his return.  If after a CAT scan and full examination by medical professionals and IF found to be a fully grown man, then this could suggest that the Native American legends of the “Little People” might in fact be true. It would also challenge the evolutionary family tree. Which branch would this mummy fit ? And are there more of these waiting to be found???

Although leads resulted from the news story, they did not help materialize the little man. However certain positive developments have resulted over the last next several years with a series of events we will report on in the future.

Update: As of April 19th 2018 the $10,000 REWARD was now been officially removed.
