Dinosaur Tracks - The Result of a Global Flood?

Try this experiment. The next time it rains find some mud and walk in it. You'll make footprints in the mud. How long will those footprint last? It won't be very long before they are gone. The same with animal tracks, whether along a trail, near water. or on a beach. The tracks don't last long, and certainly not long enough to fossilize.

What are the leading secular theories about dinosaur tracks?. Basically there is only one. The dinosaurs walked along a lake or river shore; their mud tracks hardened in the sun; and a local flood caused the water to rise and bury the tracks. But there is no evidence that happened. In similar circumstnces today the tracks wiped away by waves, wind, and rain before they can be covered by sediment and hardened into fossils. There is no reasonable secular theory explaining the existence of fossilized dinosaur tracks.

What about creation-based theories? The event that would provide the perfect conditions for creating fossilzed footprints would be the global flood. But, secular geologists point out that the churning waters of the flood would quickly erode away the mud along with any footprints.

Briefly Exposed Deluvial Sediments (BEDS). In a previous video we talk about conditions during the flood. The flood waters would be rising and falling as the result of tsunamies and normal tides. The water, although continually rising, would sweep onto the land, then drain off briefly exposing new layers of mud (sediment) before the next wave, heavily laden wity sediment, swept over the land. What we'd expect to see would be full footprints, partial footprints created by dinosaurs walking on tippy-toes, scraping footprints created by swimming dinosaurs still contacting the muddy bottom, and trackways that disappear as the dinosaur began floating. We'd alsp expect to see the dinosaurs generally moving in the same direction, away from the rising water. And this is exactly what is observed.

For fossils to form, whether they are bones or footprints, they must be bried quickly. Those are exacty the conditions during the global flood. The rising flood waters would pulverize rock, creating a huge load of sediment in the water. Layer after layer of sediment would be piled one on top ofthe other, quickly burying and protecting. dinosaur footprints. At the dinosaur track quarry mentioned in the video they have been digging out tracks since 1939. They have dug through about six feet of sediment, and it is layer after layer of sediment with tacks, nearly all made by the same type of dinosaur generally walking in a northwesterly direction. Although there are a few layers without tracks, most tracks are overlapping vertically showing that the tracks where mostly buried on a contnuous basis. Fossilzed ripples show that in many cases tracks were made and buried underwater. All of this evidence points in one direction, toward a global flood.

Note: The image above shows a dinosaur track (highlighted to make the track more visible) with water ripples. This footprint had to have been made under water.

When you look at all the evidence, fossilzed dinosaur footprints provide powerful evidence supporting a global flood. It's the only way that billions of dinosaur footprints could be preserved and fossiled around the world.

good news of the cross

The gospel is not social justice nor serving others. The gospel is love in action... Jesus Christ giving Himself so that you can be saved from the wrath of God.

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast [a]the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.
