In the News
In the mountainous northern tip of Queensland, Australia scientists have discovered a “lost world” ecosystem. Already three previously undocumented species have come to light. These include a highly camouflaged Leaf-tail Gecko (to the right – click to enlarge). It hides in the rocks during the day, but comes out at night to prey on insects. Explorer Conrad Hoskin said, “The second I saw the gecko I knew it was a new species.” Learn more about The Gecko. In another news story from down under, scientists have discovered what they are calling the oldest bird tracks in Australia. The fossilized footprints are in limestone dated by evolutionists to 105 million years ago. This would place them alongside the very dinosaurs that supposedly evolved into birds. For more on the problems with that theory, see Dinos Evolved Into Birds.
A wonderfully preserved baby Chasmosaur fossil was discovered at Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada. The fossil bears a striking resemblance to the Hongshan bloodstone dinosaur dragon carving on our Ancient Dinosaur Depictions page. Yet another fascinating aspect of this baby ceratopsian dinosaur was the preserved skin impressions, showing small, rosette-like patterns imprinted on the rock below the dinosaur. This matches the depictions drawn on the Ica Stones by the ancient Nasca peoples of Peru. Yet another remarkably preserved dinosaur, a beaked Edmontosaurus, from this region made the news because it showed preserved skin features. This dinosaur mummy actually sports a headcrest like a rooster! Such a non-bony crest was previously unknown in the fossil record. But it matches quite well with some of the dragon artwork from ancient times, like the bronze Chinese beaked dragon shown in the fifth paragraph of the Ancient Dinosaur Depictions page.
In April, our book Chronicles of Dinosauria was published by Master Books and is now available at major booksellers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

In November of 2013 our staff traveled to Acambaro, Mexico to investigate the figurines there. We climbed up Mount Toro, where the objects were found, and went through the Julsrud Museum taking hi-res pictures of the objects. See these pics at the Ancient Dinosaur Depictions page. A new entry has been added to our page of essays, giving an Update on the Mysterious Bell Found in Coal Anew page highlighting the Iron Pot found in coal was added to the Paleontological Evidence page.
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!
A couple of recent comments from visitors to Genesis Park:
- Steve from OH wrote: “I love this site! thank you so much for also posting quotes and sources in your work. I street preach and will regularly send people to this site. Thank you for helping me make the point that we need to trust the Bible’s infallible word before hiding in man’s fantasy called evolution!”
- Ruthanne wrote, “Hello. I came to your site through Google. Unfortunately I am unable to locate anywhere on your site where it tells me where you are physically located. Not even what state you are in.”
- We appreciate a correction from a visitor: “Your ‘Pterosaur Rookery’ page cites an outdated estimate of the wingspan of Quetzalcoatlus northropi. The original describers thought it may have had a wingspan of 51 ft (15.5 m), but now…it is thought to have only been 33-36 ft (10-11 m).”
Thank you for visiting the park. Please consider dropping us a note with your thoughts before you leave.
