Here at s8int.com when surfing the net in the dinosaur area, we increasingly bump into our own pages. We know also that many people unsuspectingly surf in into the middle of this dinosaur in literature section and thus aren’t sure what they’ve gotten themsleves into.

If you’re one of those people, you were probably looking for a nice picture of a sauropod, or of a tyrannosaurus rex.

Surprise! The purpose of this entire section, which as of now comprises 53 pages is to prove that dinosaurs and men coexisted in the recent past.

We began with the proposition and strong belief that the Bible is true and thus; that dinosaurs were part of the creation, that they therefore lived with man and that man would have certainly made reference to them in ancient art, history and literature. We set out to find evidence of that and from the beginning it was always right there as expected.

Costa Rican Metate 

The pieces below are called “metates” and are carved stone “tables” which are assumed to have been used for grinding. These pieces are pre-columbian, are Costa Rican and date from a period of 100 B.C. to 800 A.D.. Our featured piece is exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago and clearly represents a tyrannosaurus or other meat eating theropod such as gigantosaurus.

Previously on Page 48 of this section, we looked at a tyrannosaurus representation and discussed evidence indicating that meat eating dinosaurs had lived in South and Central America. This piece represents further evidence that they did live in those areas and that man coexisted with them.
