Interesting Items in the News
In August of 2017 the Natural History Museum in London admitted that there was an error in their dinosaur display. The mistake was brought to their attention by a 10 year old boy! The silhouette display was supposed to show an Oviraptor (right). However, Charlie noticed that the display was erroneously showing the silhouette of a Protoceratops – a sheep-sized herbivore from the Triceratops family. Charlie’s parents say he wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up. Looks like he’s already on the right track! In Argentina a new Titanosaur was discovered, possibly the largest sauropod ever to walk the Earth. Patagotitant is thought to have weighed about 70 tons!
Recently Added to the Park
Genesis Park recently revised the website featuring Larger Organisms in the Past. Based on our recent expedition to Cambodia, we added new insight to the Ropen of Papua New Guinea page. Some additional fulfilled prophecies and scientifically accurate statements of the Bible have been added to our popular page Evidence that the Bible is God’s Word. Our latest article is up featuring our research into Cambodian Ta Prohm Stegosaur Carvings.
Genesis Park electronically sends out a brief monthly newsletter which will push our latest news, creation information, and blog to your email so you won’t have to check back to see what’s going on. Genesis Park will never share your email (and you can easily unsubscribe). Click here to sign up for the Genesis Park Monthly Newsletter!
Our Upcoming Expeditions page has been updated to reflect the initiatives planned for the next few years. We are optimistic of an exciting discovery in the near future! The DinoDave website features Dave Woetzel’s speaking schedule and an overview of “The Creation Investigation.”
A couple of recent comments from visitors to Genesis Park:
- An anonymous visitor wrote: “I’ve loved dinosaurs since I was a very small child. When I was young, I was confused as to how the Bible and dinosaurs fit together. As soon as I had access to the Internet, I became an avid researcher on all things dinosaur, especially concerning the idea that they lived with man and could maybe still be alive today. One day, I stumbled upon this website. The ministry of Genesis Park helped me to eventually come to a place of confidence that dinosaurs and similar “prehistoric” creatures did indeed live with man. Genesis Park also allowed me to come to the eye-opening revelation that God did indeed create the world in six literal days, at a comparatively recent date.”
- Carl wrote, “I think these drawings are from the imaginations of men and not inspired by any real animals. …have you actually seen Jurassic Park? Mankind without very sophisticated weapons could never have survived against creatures like a T-Rex, or Allosaurus, even stegasaurus. Veloceraptors in any large number would have made mincemeat of us before we had any chance to build a civilzation.”
- [RESPONSE] Carl, Thanks for stopping by Genesis Park and leaving a comment. The question is a good one, but I’m afraid you are getting your scientific priorities a bit backwards. You are using a fictional book/movie account to critique reliable historical accounts. Jurassic Park is a good thriller, but even today we know that some of the ways they portrayed dinosaurs is wrong. For example, they had a T Rex running as fast as a car could accelerate, up till third gear. In reality, we now know that a person could easily outrun a T Rex. There will be a lot of things that we learn in the future about how wrong our current theories are. Humans have lived alongside plenty of vicious lethal animals like tigers, bears, komodo lizards, crocodiles, etc. even in modern times. Do they kill people sometimes? Sure. But there is an inherent fear in most animals of humans. In almost all of the dragon accounts there are narratives of people getting killed by them. Oftentimes numerous people (even in armor) got killed by a dragon encounter before the beast was slain. Also in every civilization there is the recurring theme of the dragons living in their swamps, lowlands, or caves. The humans typically lived on the high ground, not near the swamps. So the desire for different ecosystems naturally tended to keep them separated. The Bible says God created everything in 6 days. So I absolutely believe humans lived alongside the great reptiles. Now, one more point that is important here is that EVERYTHING is smaller today than in the distant fossil record. So I find it quite likely that humans were proportionally bigger in the past as well.
Thank you for visiting the park. Please consider dropping us a note with your thoughts before you leave.
