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:
- Dennis commented, “I believe the material presented is a very valuable lesson for adults and young people alike. Because as a fellow dinosaur and ancient history researcher there is no other way to get a correct perspective of the history of this world outside of the Bible.”
- 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.
