On April 1, 1999. An evolutionist group out of New Mexico, published on the Internet a dinosaur fossil appearing to be having a human for lunch. If true this amazing discovery would/could shock the evolutionary world. Because in the evolutionary theory, man and dino are separated by 65 million years. Meaning man and dino did NOT co-exist.
Creationists jumped on this immediately and referred to this new “evidence” as proof that man and dino did co-exist thus supporting the young age theory of the earth.
The whole thing was an elaborate April Fools joke and many evolutionists got a good chuckle at the expense of watching creationists embarrass themselves because they did not investigate this any further than pointing to a screen with a series of photos that appeared to be something extraordinary that supported their cause.
Who wouldn’t want a fossil like this in their camp? It would be the holy grail of creationist paleontology. Perhaps someday a fossil like this will be found, but until then creationists need to be more thorough in their investigation and analysis of the evidence.
