Two creationists, Karl Butt and Eric Lyons, who published Dinosaurs Unleashed: A (Falsely) True Story of Dinosaurs and Humans, visited Utah as an attempt to find evidence to support their make believe views about dinosaurs living with humans, just like what this guy did, and now they claimed to have returned with more determination to make fools of themselves and boldly try to prove their stupid beliefs about dinosaurs living with humans to be true while being blatantly ignorant of the fact that no fossils of dinosaurs has ever been found alongside humans in both fossil and historical records.
The first place they visited in Utah is The Dinosaur National Monument in Jenson, Utah. As they described what they learned at that place and make references to the findings of the Titanosaur named Jobaria made by Paul Sereno and the Walking With Dinosaurs series, note how the 2 creationists are putting phrases such as "seasonal flood" "flash flood" and "flood" in bold letters to make it imply that these fossil findings agree to their faulty beliefs that these fossils are formed by Noah's Flood. Apparently, neither of them do not want to get it in their heads that the terms "seasonal floods", "floods" and "flash floods" do not necessary imply and refer to Noah's Flood. They can't get it in their heads that there are indications of more than one flash floods happening each separately over a period of time. Even to this day, there are multiple occurrences of massive flash flooding that kill many animals by the hundreds, let alone thousands. Wildebeests' annual attempts to cross a large river to fresh pastures are the best example of this. And how do the 2 creationists explain carnivorous teeth marks and broken teeth found among the bodies, indicating that the bodies were scavenged by meat-eating dinosaurs who have come to feast on the drowned dinosaurs that have floated down the river and washed ashore? Answer is simple: They can't.
Next, the 2 creationists visit the Natural Bridges National Monument where they, just like all creationists', claim to have seen the alleged faint carving of a sauropod. Here, the 2 creationists made up a false story about a conversation they had with one of the staff working at the national park who assumed that none of the evolutionists have an explanation to how did the Anasazi people carve such an [sic] "accurate" picture of Apatosaurus upon the side of a rock wall, if dinosaurs never lived with man according to the evolutionists, and concludes that the creature carved in the wall were that of a horse or some kind of a monster.
There are several problems to the story. The petroglyph does not in anyway resemble, nor accurately depict a sauropod. It's not a horse either. UPDATE as of 3/1/11: According to two paleontologists Phil Senter and Sally Cole who published a paper dealing with this petroglyph, this image is nothing more than just an illusion - a pareidolia made up of only distinct carvings and mud stains.
Nevertheless, the 2 creationists still try to confirm their fallacy about the rock art being a so-called "accurate image" of Apatosaurus by citing 2 evolutionists by the names of Francis Barnes and Dennis Slifer, whom they claim confirms their notion about the rock art being a dinosaur while the quotes they present are possibly mined from the books and changed to fit their own perceptions of it. The rock art is anything but a dinosaur. the creature is depicted to have 5 short, stumpy legs, a dragging tail, and a cartoonish head on a upright neck. Based on the most recent studies made on sauropod anatomy, Apatosaurus had a horse-like head, a thick neck that's held in a horizontal posture, 2 elephant legs and 2 U-shaped fore legs barely having any toes except a claw growing on each first digit, a long tail held up high for balance, and a huge body with a curved back. The rock art has in fact none of these things.
Here's the creationists' distorted version of the petroglyph.
The first image is shown on the Genesis Park website, the second image is from bible.ca and the third image is shown on a plaque inside Ken Ham's idiot crackhouse. Each site deliberately distort the petroglyph much differently than each other. Notice the alleged men in the three images. No image of a man was found right next to the so-called dinosaur to begin with. The creationists of bible.ca and AiG have purposely put the man in the 3 images to deceive their followers into believing their dino-man lies. The inspiration behind the men comes from just two vertical lines seen next to a few wavy lines on the upper left side of the undistorted image below. Look up close and you'll notice that on top of the two lines appears to be faint designs that don't appear to look like a body of a man at all.
And now, lo and behold, Here's what the faint petroglyph really depict according to Senter and Cole.
Humph! So much for it being an accurate depiction of a sauropod standing next to a man….
Just as the supposed staff member in the made up story are at a loss for words to explain why did the natives allegedly made the image so accurate never mind the sauropod's true anatomy based on fossil evidence, the 2 creationists are both at a loss for words to explain why are there no fossils of human and dinosaurs together in the fossil record if what they say about dinosaurs and humans were true. Just like the supposed evolutionists in their claim, the creationists would simply just "explain away" instead of facing the truth that their views on humans and dinosaurs are all nothing but blatant lies.
To help verify their make believe conclusions about the rock art being a dinosaur, the 2 creationists pay a visit to Blanding, Utah to check out The Dinosaur Museum, which is located 45 miles west from the national park, where they saw some fragmentary remains of an Apatosaurus hip bone and falsely conclude that the Anasazi people must have saw the dinosaur alive in what is now Blanding, Utah and went to the national monument and carved the dinosaur on the wall of the bridge, thus building for themselves a case for their dino/human coexistence fallacy. A case that's empty and hopeless for all of what they claim in the article still doesn't explain why no human remains are found alongside dinosaur remains in the fossil record, let alone why no dinosaur fossils are found among the remnants of Anasazi culture such as in burial mounds, ritual sites, villages, and why are they not found in jewelry, pottery, baskets, valid rock carvings, etc.
Just as evolutionists have used dinosaurs to introduce people to the world of science, the creationists, since the 1970s, have used dinosaurs to spread lies (And then turned around and be hypocrites, accusing evolutionists of the exact same thing like what the creationists have done in the conclusion of their idiot article.) about a world based on a strict, distorted following of Genesis 1-11 of the Bible and elaborate their lies by shoehorning stuff to the Bible that's don't belong in there in the first place and take certain passages and verses out of context and twisted them to make it say exactly what they want the Bible to say regardless of what it really says.
This is one of the most purest examples of how creationists feign making discoveries they think proves their idiocy while in fact this is a direct result of taking everything out of context regardless of whether it's an ancient pottery, a faded rock art, or a quote from a book and change the stories around to fit in with their young earth beliefs while being stupidly ignorant of the fossil and historical records being completely void of traces of human and dinosaur co-existence.
