Dear friends, distinquished guests, creditors; can we take a moment to review? The term dinosaur does not appear in the Bible. That word wasn’t coined until 1842 and means; “fearfully great lizard”. Dragons are mentioned in the Bible however, and it appears to us that this was the term used throughout history to describe these various animals until-1842.

There are no creatures given a fuller description in the Bible than are the “dinosaurs” described in Job 40 and 41. In Genesis, the creation of the universe and of course every creature is described. This must include “dinosaurs”, if the Bible is true and accurate. Also, given that the Bible is true and accurate, dinosaurs were taken aboard the ark and thus survived the flood. (Since they hatch from eggs and never stopped growing, it is assumed that juvenile dinosaurs were taken aboard).

If the foregoing is true, then man and dinosaur interacted. If there is not then evidence that this is the case, (interaction) this would be a serious problem for Creationists. Many have provided evidence for this proof, and in our case, we believe that we’ve done so in over eighty pages of material in our section entitled “Dinosaurs in Literature, History and Art.”

We freely admit this evidence in many cases is subject to argument and interpretation. The evidence such that it is open to each individuals interpretation piece by piece but taken as a whole we believe it proves the point.

Sauropod Dinosaurs

Sauropods are the largest and are certainly among the most easily recognizable “dinosaurs”. Curiously, despite their large size, few complete skeletons have been found and often the various types were named and reconstructed from only a few of its bones.

The fact that the skull falls off easily accounts for the wrong head initially having been placed on the brontosaurus, now apatosaurus. Throughout their discovery in the mid-1800’s though the early 1900’s and even as late as 1950, science has had some trouble deciding just how these creatures looked.

For quite a long time, they were drawn as aquatic animals and the attitude of their neck has been an area of contention. Nearly complete skeletons were discovered around 1877, but as late as 1910 they were still being drawn by some scientists with their humerus and femur at right angles to their bodies.

Science has decided that there are four main types of sauropods skulls/head shapes and of the four, we have two which if they are in fact sauropod representations, most closely match the diplodocus.

The first object of which we will make outrageous claims tonight is one of Persian manufacture at around 500 B.C. It is a bracelet for sale on an online antiquities bazaar called “Treasures of the World”.

Ancient Costa Ricans Faced Winged Terror from Above; and Things Weren’t Always So Sanguine on the Ground Either-Stone Metates of Central America

Figure 1 shows detail from an ancient stone metate from Costa Rica. Two bird-like creatures attack men by the head on either side of this stone table.

Based on the art they left behind, the Ancient Costa Ricans worried a bit about terror from the skies and for that matter, there appeared to be giant reptiles on the ground (the scientific paradigm calls them crocodilians or reptilians) that elicited a bit of concern as well.

Hello, I’m s8int.com’s Chris Parker. You know, science tells us that dinosaurs and pterosaurs died out 40 million and 65 million years ago respectively. Here at s8int.com, we do the kind of research that thankfully takes no skill or special knowledge at all. We look at pictures of ancient art and visit museums. Our research tells science is off by 99.99% or so.”.

Costa Rica which means “Rich Coast” is a Central American country bordered by the countries of Nicaragua and Panama to the east and south and by the Pacific on its southern and western border and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Many people find it to be a choice vacation destination.

It’s possible that the proximity of its coastlines to the Pacific Ocean and Carribean Sea may account for its ancient fascination with death and terror from the skies. Maybe these giant flying creatures, if they really existed stopped in on their way to someplace else?

Art from Costa Rica looks different than other Pre-colombian art. They were at the edge of the civilizations we call Aztec. Frequent themes of ancient Costa Rican and of its neighbors Nicaragua and the Honduras frequently featured birds, the jaguar, trophy heads and reptilian figures which science always neatly explains away.

One interesting artifact found all over pre-Columbian South and Central America is the stone metate which was used for grinding corn and other foodstuffs. Some of the metates of Costa Rica however, were especially ornate and included three dimensional figures like birds, “giant flying creatures”, “monkeys, jaguars, warriors and again saurians or reptilian figures.

The author has seen approximately 100 examples of these ancient stone metates and more than a handfull of them show represenatations of large “bat winged creatures”, attacking lions , monkey’s and/or men from above.

One can certainly argue about what each of these flying creatures represent; birds, pterosaurs or mythological creatures but certainly for some unknown reason it is clear that the Costa Rican’s imagined or witnessed attacks from giant flying creatures. Note that bats do not have the long bills represented. Some birds and some pterosaurs did or do…

Below we provide examples of several ancient Costa Rican stone metates with the features we’ve described. Our intial metate, Figure 1, displays one obvious pterosaur depiction attacking the head of a man. Our speculation that at least one pterosaur is being represented goes as far as to suggest that the head crest puts us in mind of an Azhdarchids an often giant pterosaur which includes the very large and difficult to spell; Quetzalcoatlus.
