Creationist Claim That Man Lived With Dinosaurs Rocked

“Dinosaur” petroglyphs at Kachina Bridge site, Natural Bridges National Monument, southeastern Utah: not dinosaurs after all. Among the many images made by prehistoric people on the walls of Kachina Bridge is what appears to be an unambiguous depiction of a sauropod dinosaur, herein called Dinosaur 1. Because mainstream science has produced no alternate explanation for Dinosaur 1, it has become an important weapon in the arsenal of the anti-evolution movement. The movement’s proponents claim that it demonstrates the coexistence of humans and dinosaurs, thus casting doubt on the geological time scale of millions of years. Until now that claim has gone unchallenged. The hypothesis that a given petroglyph depicts a dinosaur predicts that the image is not a composite; depicts an animal; has

features that cannot be reconciled with non-dinosaurian local fauna; has features of a specific, identifiable dinosaur; and is entirely human-made. These predictions were tested for Dinosaur 1 and three other alleged dinosaur petroglyphs at Kachina Bridge by on-site visual examination under varying light conditions. Examination reveals that the “neck” and “back” of Dinosaur 1 are a composite of two separate petroglyphs, and its “legs” are a natural mud or mineral stain. A second alleged sauropod petroglyph is a mere mud stain. The other two alleged dinosaur petroglyphs are human-made, but neither depicts an animal. The four Kachina Bridge “dinosaurs” are illusions produced by pareidolia. None of them satisfy the predictions of the hypothesis that a dinosaur is depicted. Dinosaur 1—heretofore a creationist poster child—and its counterparts now join the plethora of discredited “evidence” for the ancient coexistence of humans and dinosaurs.Authors: Phil Senter. Department of Natural Sciences, Fayetteville State University, Sally Cole, archaeological consultant.  –  Prof. Phil Senter. Fayetteville State University History. Fayetteville State University is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is a member of the greater University of North Carolina system. A

few courses are offered at the campus in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Fayetteville State University was founded in 1867 as the Howard School for African-Americans, became a 4-year school in 1933, and received university status in 1969. The University now awards bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. It is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and School, among others. It continues to enroll large numbers of African-American students.The University is part of the North Carolina Research Education Network and provides distance learning through remote videoconferencing centers throughout the state. There is an on-campus organization to help commuter students. p. Fayetteville State University’s mission statement says that the University’s mission is “to provide quality education to its students through a basic liberal arts foundation, specialized professional training, and specific graduate programs.” FSU has its beginnings in the end of the Civil War, when the local Black community began devising a plan for an educational system. The school that would become FSU opened its doors in 1869. Through various changes in administration and some legislative acts, the institution became the University it is today, and formally adopted its current name in 1969. Sources: Palaeontologia.
