Huge Field of Dinosaur Tracks Found.


www.livescience.com

More than 1,000 dinosaur footprints along with tail-drag marks have been discovered along the Arizona-Utah border. The incredibly rare concentration of beastly tracks likely belonged to at least four different species of dinosaurs, ranging from youngsters to adults.

The tracks were laid about 190 million years ago in what is now the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument.

As a friend just said to me,'This is not gonna make Sarah Palin or the other right wing evangelical Christians very happy.' lol.

This new discovery is already being called into question,some believe them to be nothing more than erosion features.Which is the typical answer from those who do not believe in dinosaurs.

I guess God put them there to test people's faith.lol.
Now,i know many Christians don't think like that so don't have a go.I just find that theory amusing.

Does anyone know the location of these new tracks? Specific coordinates or name of site.

From what I remember, there is already a Dinosaur museum in St George, Utah. Some tracks were found at a farm.

Why can't you stay on topic about how great this is for paleontology? Instead you have to use it to take a political cheap shot? Threads like this are the reason I increasingly cannot stand ATS around election time. Does everyone lose their mind?

I have absolutely no idea what this has to do with Sarah Palin, who lives in a state that is covered with paleontology finds.

Anyways. Do not underestimate "Christians" who believe in dinos. My father, a retired [evangelical] pastor, is very involved in the paleontology world and can attest that the Christians community is extremely filled with dino believers.

With all that said. What a fascinating find.

Because what my friend said made me laugh,and i thought it would be selfish not to share it with as many people as possible.I'm not American so i care very little for the election race.

I believe i said that not all Christians are anti-dinosaur.

My bad for not explaining this.
The site unbearablebobness.typepad.com includes "fake Governor Sarah Palin quotes." One such quote is this;

"God made dinosaurs 4,000 years ago as ultimately flawed creatures, lizards of Satan really, so when they died and became petroleum products we, made in his perfect image, could use them in our pickup trucks, snow machines and fishing boats. Now, as to the ANWR, Todd and I often enjoying caribou hunting and one year we shot up a herd big time, I mean I personally slaughtered around 40 of them with my new, at the time, custom Austrian hunting rifle. And guess what? That caribou herd is still around and even bigger than ever. Caribou herds actually need culling, be it by rifles or wolves, or Exxon-Mobil oil rigs, they do just great!"

Sometimes my sence of humour doesn't translate well.

Has anyone tried to visit this site? Is it open to the public? In a few months, I'll be in the region (255 miles away). Despite the distance, I wouldn't mind taking a "small" detour and see first-hand this great find.

Awesome find! Sounds like a great place to visit if they will allow tourists.

I recently took a trip to Dinosaur Valley State Park outside of Glen Rose, TX. Here are some photographs I took of some of the dinosaur tracks located throughout the park:

Most christians that I know, believe dionsaurs and man co exisited.
I also believe that.

This is just one site discussing it;
there seems to be evidence all over the world:

I am looking for a current story about the original 2008 topic
(figured there might be an update about it) and can't find one?

Is it just me or do the foot prints under water in the first two pictures look like fresh prints?


Ohh! I think I just scored on the wrong hoop because I just tied the game for the religious dino-walkers! 1-1

Jokes of course, good find/cool pics! S&F

LOL!! That site is jocular!

I guess it doesn't hurt anyone to believe that, but you sure are holding the rest of society back, quit it!

Potholes mentioned at the bottom of the article sums it up I thought.
If theses are the best off the 1,000 dinosaur footprints along with tail-drags it doesn't look good really. But checking the large print I noticed it could be from a Ornithopod the first one does look like a pothole.

Although a lot of stuff on the site was garbage, the dinosaur art section was pretty good unless its a hoax or something, like this picture - www.bible.ca...

I think its possible that early humans may have coexisted with dinosaurs, but I certainly dont think the earth is 5,000 years old..

I know many Christians, and none of them question the existence of Dinosaurs. In fact, I've never known any Christians who refused to "believe in Dinosaurs" (whatever that means).

There's nothing about the existence of Dinosaurs that contradicts or refutes Christianity — to think such a thing and say it in public is just an exposition of your own ignorance and naiveté.

If by dinosaurs you mean the extinct ancestors of crocodiles, aligators, turtles, and lizards then yes, but we definitely did not walk with the large creatures we consider dinosaurs that died out 65 million years ago.
