According to a well known dinosaur myth, meat-eating dinosaurs like Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus were afraid of water. The plant eaters took advantage of this and escape into the water the moment they saw their enemy coming for them. We now know that it's not true thanks to the discovery of foot tracks belonging to a swimming carnivorous dinosaur made in Spain which destroys the myth about aquaphobic meat-eaters which was heavily paraded around for so many years in countless vintage dinosaur books from All About Dinosaurs to The Album of Dinosaurs.
However, when it comes to fossils like these, creationists wastes no time declaring them to be evidence of animals struggling in vain to stay alive in the Flood while being ignorant of the fact that if young earth is true and the worldwide flood occurred, there would have been no traces of any kind of fossils whether bones, eggs, or footprints whether by itself or in a trackway found anywhere on Earth. In the June 5th article entitled Terrible Lizards trapped by Terrible Flood, Creationist, Taz Walker states that the swimming carnosaur foot track discovery made in Northern Spain is another evidence uncovered that confirms the worldwide Flood to be fact, while blatantly ignoring the huge problems associating with it.
In the beginning of the article, Walker states,
"A trail of fossilized claw marks found in northern Spain reveals the desperation of animals struggling to escape drowning in the Genesis Flood."
It seems that way in their eyes. But, you can bet the dinosaur would never have a chance to swam against heavily, violent floodwaters filled with meteor showers, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, splitting, crumbling grounds, and powerful hurricane force winds if the young earther's apocalyptic depictions of the global flood is true.
Then, Walker explains the tracks, which are made up of scratch and ripple marks, and how it tell us that the dinosaur was swimming against a strong current in 10ft deep of water. But, that doesn't necessary point to the fabled young earth Flood. Especially since normal rivers can produce strong currents even during the days of calmer weather, while the violent waters of the Genesis Flood would have destroyed every foot track in the world along with everything else.
Ignorant as ever, Walker, in his next statement, refuses to believe that the footprints were laid down by sediment in a slow progress that lasted over 125 million years and would rather resort to the Flood to explain the prints.
"All this evidence for catastrophe contradicts the age assigned to the fossil in the report. The date of 125 million years assumes the sediment was laid down at an unimaginably slow rate. However, rapid sedimentation in deep flowing water is more consistent with the global Flood that occurred 4,500 years ago-especially when we consider what eventually happened to the animals scrambling from the area."
This, including the 10,000 dinosaur trackways also found in Spain, fails miserably to explain why are there so many tracks found depicting dinosaurs walking sedately along their migratory routes only to stop for a bit and spread out to feed and drink while being watched by an opportunistic predator ready to prey on any dinosaur that wanders away from the herd instead of stampeding to escape a wall of water that never came. Plus, one must wonder how come we have found no records anywhere which tells us about the catastrophe in the 4th, 5th, and 6th Dynasty records of Egypt and/or other ancient nations dated to that time if that was the case.
The conclusion Walker made to the article is a pure example of how creationists are violating the Bible's completeness by adding to it things the Bible never really said anything about to begin with,
"As the Bible says, and the fossils show, the stampeding animals did not reach safety but perished as the floodwaters continued rising (Genesis 7:21-23). The remains of many dinosaurs have been found buried in the north of Spain in water-laid sediments, now hardened into rock.
And adds to it by giving out this flawed example. One of the most recent discoveries made in Spain is a brand new, previous Sauropod species named Turiasaurus riodevensus, a large, basal sauropod that lived between the end of the Jurassic and the very beginning of the Cretaceous Period. This last paragraph claims that Turiasaurus, along with all other fossils, was buried quickly without being scavenged (which is false) and makes the following error:
"And it was not the only animal that perished that way. There were other sauropods, as well as theropods, fish, turtles and crocodile-like reptiles, all fossilized in the area."
Wrong, Walker! Scientists actually found fossil Sauropods, Theropods, turtles, fish, and Stegosaurids, not "crocodile-like reptiles." Here, he claims the dinosaurs in Spain were all victims of the Flood which is not only false, but also littered with scores of problems, including the creationists' utter failure to logically explain what's with the loose carnosaur teeth and chew marks they left behind, burrowing insects, and parasites found in and around so many fossils other than the ones unearthed in Spain.
