D111:  Footprints of humans and dinosaurs together prove that man and dinosaurs lived at the same time


Edited by Greg Neyman



Argument:  Numerous young earth creationists claim that footprints of humans and dinosaurs (mainly at Paluxy River in Texas) shows that they lived together

  1. A thorough study of the tracks by Glen Kuban has revealed that some of the human prints are in fact dinosaur prints which have been eroded or infilled with mud.  The remaining prints show no clear human features, and some of the prints show evidence of deliberate alteration to make them look more human

  2. Young earth ministries such as Answers in Genesis, and the Institute for Creation Research, have publicly stated the prints are not human.  Despite this, many creationists still proclaim them

  3. The claim appears in The Genesis Flood (copyright 1961) and Scientific Creationism (copyright 1974).  Both books authored by Henry Morris of ICR.  Morris's son, John Morris, now head of ICR, says in Impact Article 151 (linked below, Jan 1986) that it is now doubtful these are human prints.  However, ICR continues to sell these two books, propagating these untruths willfully twenty years after they denounced them.  If ICR has any integrity, they should either issue revisions for these books or remove them from the market
