Having followed a link over at Mak’s spot, and noting that the post had switched off comments, I decided to read a few more articles.
I was drawn to the one featuring an Allosaurus as I have a particular fondness for dinosaurs. And fondness in a You -stay-there-millions-of-years-ago rather than a gimme a hug type of fondness!
Though imagine how amazing it would be to jump in the Tardis for a quick tour of the Jurassic?
And talking of fantasies …
This article on the Allosaurus cites one Dr Andrew A Snelling, who is a bsc ( Hons) in Geology and holds a PhD from University of Sydney.
Meaning not least that he is a proper geologist and writes proper papers on geology.
And yet, here he is writing an article on the Allosaurus for AiG.
You can read about this mind-numbing contradiction here.
You can also read about what is called the Morrison Formation here
On the Allosaurus article for AiG he writes ….
The full-grown Allosaurus now on exhibit at the Creation Museum was another phenomenal find. A creationist, Dana Forbes, discovered this fossil in 2000 on his land near Massadonna, in the far northwest corner of Colorado. Over the next two years teams of excavators recovered 139 bones out of a possible 250, making this specimen about 56% complete.
Those excavators saw this huge Allosaurus as yet another reminder of God’s Flood judgment of the world because of man’s sin and how He preserved mankind and animal kinds despite that global cataclysm.
And this ….
The possibilities are endless. When understood within the framework of the Bible, these discoveries will add to our knowledge of the Creator and His work in history. That’s why some of the people involved in excavating this dinosaur named it “Ebenezer.” first Samuel records how God rescued the prophet Samuel and the Israelite army from the terror of the Philistine army.
And this …
Creationists should be very much at home with a biblical explanation for the dinosaurs’ demise. As a result of Adam’s rebellion against his Creator, about 1,650 years later the world had become full of violence ( God decided to judge the earth by sending a global cataclysmic Flood to destroy it and all the land-dwelling, air-breathing creatures, except for those preserved on the Ark with Noah and his family . So all those creatures outside the Ark, including dinosaurs, were swept away by the Flood waters and buried in many thick sand and mud layers all around the globe, where they became fossilized as the layers hardened to rocks, about 4,350 years ago.
This is Snelling’s conclusion on what happened to the Allosaurus .
So Ebenezer met a violent death as he was swept away by the rising Flood waters moving swiftly up and across the continent’s surface. Before his carcass could rot while floating in the Flood waters and his skeleton be scattered, his body was caught in a massive debris flow full of sand and volcanic materials. Dumped with the rapidly-accumulating sediments, his neck was broken as his body was buried on its left side. Entombed, his bones were rapidly fossilized by the chemical-rich waters in the sediments.
The dinosaur Ebenezer—like all other dinosaurs—is a testament to the global Flood and the Bible’s accuracy. It is very much at home in a creationist museum, and a good friend to our cause. Once they are properly understood, dinosaurs should make evolutionists, not creationists, feel awkward.
And these people have access to kids?
