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.

$10,000 Reward For The Pedro Mummy (Has Been Removed)

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

In 2005 a $10,000 Reward for Pedro Mountain Mummy appeared in the headlines in the news around the world.  The AP story circulated as their readers were introduced to a little known, little man affectionately named after 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. The facts are Pedro was a mummified human and only 14″ tall! The many scientists who examined the mini-mummy were divided. The anthropologist group 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 the mini-man surfaced, the testing necessary to discover what he is would never be solved. 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 the 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.

Did a Dinosaur Swallow A Man…? April Fools!

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

On April 1, 1999. An evolutionist group out of New Mexico, published on the Internet a dinosaur fossil appearing to be having a human for lunch. If true this amazing discovery would/could shock the evolutionary world. Because in the evolutionary theory, man and dino are separated by 65 million years. Meaning man and dino did NOT co-exist.

Creationists jumped on this immediately and referred to this new “evidence” as proof that man and dino did co-exist thus supporting the young age theory of the earth.

 

The whole thing was an elaborate April Fools joke and many evolutionists got a good chuckle at the expense of watching creationists embarrass themselves because they did not investigate this any further than pointing to a screen with a series of photos that appeared to be something extraordinary that supported their cause.

Who wouldn’t want a fossil like this in their camp? It would be the holy grail of creationist paleontology. Perhaps someday a fossil like this will be found, but until then creationists need to be more thorough in their investigation and analysis of the evidence.

Internationally known Cy(lops) Cat and her Amazing Story

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

In early 2006, the Associated Press created a media frenzy over a one-eyed cat named Cy. Due to the limited information being rehashed over thousands of newspapers and web sites around the world, it left people wanting to know more about Cy’s story. Some have written us and asked, “What did the original owner Traci Allen think when she first discovered Cy?” “Why did the Lost World Museum want Cy?” “What is Cy’s significance? “How did she end up with one eye?” “Can I visit her?”

These questions necessitated the production of informational Cy cards. The set of 3 cards tell the full story. Each of the three cards has a different photo of Cy when she was alive. These three photos are the only ever taken during Cy’s 24 hour short life. The original photos were extracted directly from the former cat owner’s camera memory stick. This allowed the images used to be the absolute highest quality reproductions of Cy available. These full color 6″x9″ cards are a perfect attention getting conversation starter on the evolution creation debate that continues to reverberate in the blogs and more recently on national TV.
