Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together

February 1, 2018 | David F. Coppedge

In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock.

Of all places: at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, a property representing the cutting edge of human technology, dinosaurs left their mark. Ray Stanford was dropping off his wife at work when he noticed an unusual rock outcrop. As an amateur paleontologist, he looked and saw a dinosaur track, so he began digging. Soon he had an 8′ x 3′ slab of rock that was covered with tracks of all kinds, one of the most densely-concentrated trackways in the world. Tracks of stegosaur and nodosaur were found, but that’s not all, Laura Geggel reports for Live Science:

Of the 70 prints, at least 26 belong to squirrel- and raccoon-size mammals, the researchers said. This finding is remarkable, they added, given that it’s incredibly rare to find fossilized trackways belonging to dinosaur-age mammals. Until now, there were only four scientifically named mammal trackways from the Mesozoic: one from the Jurassic period and three from the Cretaceous. (Just like with new species, researchers can give scientific names to animal trackways.)

Could be. I believe early mammals did coexist with dinosaurs.

It’s good to see fundamentalists start to embrace science.

Ray has also written the definitive book on the Socorro/ Lonnie Zamora ufo case; hard to find now:

Mammals did co-exist with dinosaurs. Mostly small. When the dinosaurs became extinct, the mammals expanded into all those ecological niches.

It’s not news that mammals coexisted with dinosauria. (Least not if you study it).

Actual (falsifiable) science does not contradict the Bible in any way.

Ummmm. Read the article:

From the quoted LiveScience article:

“A 4-inch-long (10 cm) track belonging to the raccoon-size mammal is the largest mammal print from the Cretaceous on record. Its size is surprising, given that most dinosaur-age mammals were the size of squirrels or prairie dogs, the researchers said.”

Coppedge comments on that statement:

“Why not ask, “Were these creatures scrambling to get away from muddy water surging in, that covered their tracks before they could be eroded? That could explain the lack of overlap and the absence of bones of the animals. The animals were swept away by the surge, but the tracks were instantly covered. Once again we see evolutionists surprised to find good-sized mammals with dinosaurs.”

Not much of a surprise as (Flintstone, 1962, Season. 2, Episode. 4) concluded that Dino (note, capitalization of dino) transitioned from dinosaur to canine mammal during the latter quartile of the Cretaceous Period.

Mammals, or at least proto-mammals predate the dinosaurs. Some of the earliest “big” creatures were mammal-like reptiles like the gorgonopsids, which existed millions of years before the first true dinosaurs appeared.

This info may be predated by that of Beanie and Cecil (the puppet version) which was introduced in 1948.

“Were these creatures scrambling to get away from muddy water surging in, that covered their tracks before they could be eroded?”

Other research has cited that, “while Fred’s two feet left footprints that would have established clear evidence that man and dinosaur co-exised, the weight of the stone rear wheel of Mr. Flintstone’s vehicle covered Fred’s footprints.”

Was that a spear in T-Rex’s side?

“This info may be predated by that of Beanie and Cecil (the puppet version) which was introduced in 1948.”

While Beanie and Cecil produced the first scholarly animation article that proposed the thesis that man and dinosaur co-exised, it was not until Flintstone’s & Rubble’s Peer Review, and Flintstone’s & Rubble’s (1963) research that confirmed Beanie and Cecil’s original theory.

...

It’s only surprising because none have been found before, not because they are impossible. Atmospheric conditions during that time led to large animals.

I hope you hold the Bible to the same standard as you do science.
