Evolutionists often ask why if men and dinosaurs interacted, no evidence of their fossil remains having been found together exists. One of the aims of several sections of this website has been to show that such evidence exists in quantity, but that it has been lost, suppressed or ignored.

Any scientist who today announced for example that he had found evidence that a dinosaur bone showed evidence of having been butchered by man would not make a name for himself but would rather, end his scientific career.

Evidence supported by science has been discovered numerous times (such as the Doheny Expedition) and according to an article in the Galveston news, reprinted from the Carthage Patriot, another such an impossible interaction was discovered;

“Mr. Henry "Woodard owns a stock rancho in the Indian Territory, in the Peoria Nation, on which is situated the big sulfur spring. The spring is surrounded by a quagmire, which is very deep and " slushy," and so soft that it will not bear any considerable weight.

Mr. W. lately undertook to curb up the spring in order to get water more easily, and while working in the mire came upon what appeared to be an enormous bone. He at once began an examination which disclosed the fact that it was the head of some mammoth beast.

His curiosity was aroused, and, with the assistance of three other men, he began the work of excavation. For four days they worked, but did not succeed in bringing the monster to the surface. They threw off the marl, but could not lift the head of this golitic giant.

They found the skeleton well preserved, and the immense teeth still sat in the jaws. The jaws were both in place and the spinal column attached to the cranium. Tho earth was thrown off from the body to the length of twenty feet, but still the gigantic skeleton remained beneath”.

The men finally managed to dislodge a number of the creature’s ribs which according to the report, were eight feet in length. When the dirt was removed which was encircled by the ribs and bones, Mr. Woodard and the men with him got an even bigger surprise according to the article.
“there lay the skeleton of a human being, with one hundred and two flint arrow points and fifteen flint knives. The cranium indicated that it was the skeleton of an Indian. It would have been impossible for the man to be inside the animal without having been swallowed by him”.

The skeleton of the man, it was reported was broken and smashed on its right hand side, providing support at least to the men on site that the injuries had been sustained in a confrontation with the creature.

The witnesses also believed that the creature was carnivorous based on the shape and size of a large molar and two incisors which still survived the passing of years in the upper jaw. There were also tusks on each side of the jaw.

The teeth were exhibited at the offices of the Carthage Patriot and weighed and measured there. The largest tooth weighed eight pounds and measured 8 inches by 4 inches.

“ The article concludes with the following:

“All the bones indicate that they have lain buried for an incredibly long period, as they crumble rapidly when brought in contact with the atmosphere. Every circumstance goes to show that these are the largest animal remains ever resurrected, and the teeth, tusks, and structure of the head and jaws prove unmistakably that it was of the carnivorous class.

Plus it had a guy in its stomach?

A Strange Animal

Discovered by Hunter in Screven County Swamp
The Queerest Freak on Record
The Hunter was paralyzed with fear and forgot his gun in the excitement
Atlanta Constitution
Feb 11, 1895

The pterosaur wasn’t as well known in 1895 as it is today. There certainly was no internet, newspapers still printed few pictures and television was still years away. In the early 1800’s scientists still thought the pterosaur was some kind of aquatic creature rather than a flying reptile. In our minds, assuming this report to be a true and accurate account, a sighting of a large pterosaur is the only animal that fits the description.

Sylvania, Ga. Feb 10. (Special) A Screven county hunter relates a thrilling story of a strange animal which he encountered in a swamp….

The hunter relates that he was standing, armed with a rifle behind a stand of trees and was hoping to be able to take a shot at deer passing by. At that time he heard a fairly noisy call that caused his hair to stand on end because it was an unrecognizable and very strange animal sound. The hunter described the sound as being a combination of the sound of a “large duck” with that of a snake's hiss.

“The sound seemed to issue from a thick place surrounding a kind of lagoon. I kept my eyes fasted on the spot with cocked gun in hand…

In a few seconds I heard a kind of splashing in the water and peering through the bushes I saw, about a hundred yards away, what seemed the head of an enormous duck. But I thought surely it was the king of all ducks –for the bill was at least a foot long and as black as could be.”

The hunter noted that the creature continued to make his duck/snake call and seemed to be either swimming or wading in the swamp.

“..The creature raised itself up a little and I saw the blackest, ugliest, most loathsome looking animal that ever inhabited this earth."

He described the body of the creature as being three or four feet long and black and he now thought that perhaps he was looking at an alligator because of the teeth and jaws. He continued to crouch behind his tree in fear and wonder and soon had an opportunity to more closely inspect the creature.

“..what I had thought was an alligator stepped up on this little elevation, and then I saw that it had only two feet. As near as I could judge, its legs were about a foot and a half long, and it stood there like some huge blackbird of the night, with its bill stuck downward….”

“It’s body was rough and scaly, like an alligator’s and the tail went off to a point. It had legs like a turkey or a duck only they were larger and stronger”. The hunter reported that he was unable to see its eyes or its feet. Here’s where figuring out what the creature was got even more difficult for the hunter.

As is often the case when things seem bad, they got a little worse for the hunter as he continued his observations. The hunter testified that during this period he remained extremely terrified of this unknown creature even though he was armed with a deer rifle.

“After a short while, that seemed an age, the creature gave a kind of spring from the ground, and before I could realize what it was doing it went up into a large tree and sat on the lowest limb. As it did so I could hardly believe my eyes when is saw two dark wings spread out from its side and strike the air with a heavy sound that made my heart sick. I had not noticed before that it had wings; but wings they certainly were although I could see no feathers.”

The hunter reports that when the wings were drawn again close to his body, they could not really be seen. At that point, with the creature in the tree with its back to him, that he made his hasty retreat.

Wild Man of the Woods-

The Compiler, Gettysburg 1851

“A gigantic man of the woods has been discovered in Greene county, Arkansas, and a party has been organized to catch him.

When last seen he was pursuing a herd of cattle, who were flying in a state of great alarm, as if pursued by a dreaded enemy. On seeing the party who discovered him, he looked at them deliberately for a short time, turned, and ran away with great speed, leaping from twelve to fourteen feet at a time.

His footprints, according to the article were about thirteen inches long. He was reported to have a gigantic build, to be covered from head to toe with hair. His hair was reported to have been particularly long at the head and shoulders.

An early bigfoot report or an early, unruly neighbor report?

Ocean-Bed Mystery

Soviet Report Trace of Unknown Animal
October 5, 1961
New York Times, October 5, 1961

The Research vessel Vityaz was built in 1939 as the German cargo ship Mars. After the WW2 it was transferred to Soviet Union as war reparation.. She was converted to research ship in 1947-48 and renamed Vityaz. From the early 1950’s through the early 70’s the ship was responsible for many deep sea discoveries.

Pravda published a photograph of the Ocean bed showing what it called “a gigantic trace of animal so far unknown to science”.

“It said the photograph had been taken nearly 10,000 feet down by the staff of the Soviet research ship Vityaz. No further details were provided.

The New Scientist Magazine reprinted the photo and noted that the “gigantic tracks” had been photographed 9,700 feet down on the floor of the Indian Ocean.

Perhaps they are the tracks of leviathan. Perhaps they are artifacts of a pre-flood civilization. If anyone has access to New Scientist Magazine of 1961—the only details given, maybe they could give us a look at the photograph.

Weekly Nevada State Journal

April 7, 1883
Prehistoric Footprints (gigantic, in sandstone)

Click and drag to resize.

We have already written previously about the discovery of fossilized footprints at the Carson Nevada Prison site in 1883. 1883 was such a gentler time in the course of the Darwinist religion, because a number of scientists let themselves get involved with the site in the first place. These days, a report of “colossal human footprints” would be debunked by scientists without a visit to the site or examination of evidence and thus without any risk to career or challenge to the orthodoxy.

A size thirteen shoe is approximately 12 inches long. The sandaled footprints in Nevada were as long as 21.5 inches and eight inches wide. The tracks included those of the elephant, man, the horse, bird and deer, none of whom should have been found in North America at the time sandstone formed. Rocks, no matter what type are supposed to have formed millions and billions of years before ‘complex” life evolved.

According to the article “The scientific world became greatly interested in these tracks, and several members of the California Academy of Science visited the quarry and inspected the tracks. Those who read papers on the subject at the Academy were Dr. H.W. Harkness, C.D. Gibbes, R.E. C. Stearns, Prof. Joseph Le Conte and J.R. Scupham.”

Brave men all.

The tracks were laid out as shown in the accompanying diagram by C.D. Gibbes. The scientists surmised that the location of the tracks were near what had been the mouth of an ancient stream. The tracks had been overridden many times by modern riders and animals, but because they were locked in stone, they had not been obliterated.

“Clarence King in his geological survey of the fortieth parallel, the “Lower Quarternary”. Referring to this region, he says it is composed of sandstones and clays worn down from the adjacent high mountains and deposited in the water and on the shores of a lake of many hundreds of miles in area…”

According to the 1883 report, the scientists went on to say: “presumably we stand on the shore of this ancient pond or lake, and as we look about us we see the footprints of a variety of animals, among which we recognize those of the mammoth, the deer, the wolf, of many birds, of a horse, and most important of all, the imprints of the sandaled foot of man.

There are six series of the tracks of man, each being represented by a number of footprints (from 8 to 17), in regular order, and each showing more or less plainly, the imprint of a sandal. Besides this, in one of the series the form of the sandal differs markedly from the others.”

….. Each of the imprints furnishes us with evidence, as we believe, that the feet of the one making the tracks were protected by sandals. In no single impression do we find conclusive evidence of this fact, but when we study them as a whole we find that which is wanting in one is furnished by other which follow.”

The distance between the left and right man tracks were twice that of current men although the stride proved to be about the same trending to slightly longer than the current average.

About the series of human tracks, scientist G.D. Gibbes’ report included the following information:

“Series No. 2 consists of 13 human foot-prints 21 inches long, and 7 inches wide, going in a southwesterly direction until lost in the sandstone bluff at the south wall, which is 22 feet high at this point. This man had a very peculiar shaped foot, and may be said to have toed the mark, he walked as straight as a surveyor running a line……This series covers 40 feet.

Series No. 3 contains 15 human tracks, 18 inches long and 7 wide, going nearly west, with the toes turned out, and stopping rather irregular.

Series No. 4 has 14 tracks, 18 inches long, going nearly parallel to No 2 and crossing No. 3.

Series No. 5 covers 112 feet of ground…..”

One might well strain a stomach muscle trying to pin down how old science believes sandstone is. There are various types, believed to have formed between 3 million and 250 million years ago—and even older. What are the implications of the footprints of giant man, birds, wolfs, horses, elephants or mammoths, and deer locked in sandstone? Creatures who were there together before the sandstone formed and set?

Forget about seeing any of the foregoing in a geology or evolutionary textbook. Those scientists back in 1883 weren’t writing for posterity.
