What Killed this GIGANTIC Mastodon and When?

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

The Lone Star Mastodon  is not just a big elephant, he’s actually a huge reminder of our not too distant past.  Estimated to be between 13-14ft at the shoulder, this behemoth took up a lot of space and ate a ton of food. A conventional elephant can put away 300 lbs of vegetation a day. Since Lone Star weighted upwards of 12 tons that’s 24,000 lbs., it means his daily intake must have been almost twice that.

Found in a Texas gravel bed in 2004. Only the head and lower jaw survived, the two massive tusks were missing. What means ended this huge animals life is the mystery we are attempting to unravel. 

From our “forensic eyeglasses”, we begin with establishing what incontrovertible evidences first that help us understand the circumstances of this pachyderms demise?

The Evidence:

#1  Buried in soil that later became a mineable source of gravel.

#2  Skull in a fossilized condition

Let’s explore what a gravel bed is first:
Gravel Bed – Wikipedia states: “Gravel is often produced by quarrying and crushing hard-wearing rocks, such as sandstone, limestone, or basalt.” 2 are sedimentary (water based) or and 1 is volcanic.

Fossilization – These 3 atop aforementioned types of rocks provide one of the perfect conditions for fossilization.

Therefore this beast was encased in silt or volcanic ash, under extreme pressure, trapping its remains so quickly that oxygen could not begin normal tissue process decay. Time passed and voila a fossil. 

Question?
But what knocks down a 16,000 lbs mammal and then encases it in dirt so fast, so complete that fossilization conditions can be met?  To me it’s hard to imagine our big tusked friend getting stuck in a watering hole, die and then somehow get covered in the manner required for fossilization to occur. It had to be fast and furious. Catastrophic.

Interpretation: Experts beliefs on cause of death and the age of the fossil.

Evolutionists claim that the last North American mastodon survived till approximately 8,000 B.C.  and was killed off due to hunting. That’s 10,000 years ago.

Creationists believe 2 events could have killed and fossilized Lone Star.
#1 – Caught in the worldwide flood 4,500 years ago.
#2 – After Noah’s flood subsided many lakes and dams holding back the post-flood residual waters, burst and sent a secondary wave of catastrophic water inland and buried many animals, fossilizing them.

Let’s sum this up:

Either way the time-line here is in question. Is it the evolutionists 10,000 years or the creationists 4,500 year age of the fossil?

Evolutionist's state every fossil is between 10,000 to 3.48 billion years old. 

Creationist’s believe most fossils are 4,500 years old resulting from a massive flood which caused the perfect conditions of rapid fossilization to occur.

Which then brings us back to the main question…
“How did our big buddy die? and when?”
Was it 10,000 years or 4,500 years ago?

Bomb Shell Evidence….in 2003, buried in a sand pit 50 ft away, from a fossilized Mammoth, in Clute Texas was found a wooden bowl, carbon dated at…4,200 years!  The significance of this apparently anomalous find challenges the Mammoth and or Mastodon extinctions of 10,000 years ago.

4,200 year old Bowl next to Mammoth vs. Scientists dating of Mammoth no earlier than 10,000 years ago.(This particular fossil WAS determined to be 38,000 Yeats old)  Which is it? Are the creationists correct in their 4,500 year dating?

To understand the further significance of this wooden artifact, go to our VIDEO which explains the Clute bowl in detail. Then ask yourself Apes, Aliens, or Adam?…You decide.

New Bible Museum Opens in D.C.

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Washington, D.C. Friday November 16th 2017 the Museum of the Bible opened to the public. This $500 million dollar, 430,000 sqft. facility was  built to showcase…well the Bible. Visitors are treated to more than old dusty parchments in a glass case, theres much more to this museum.
What I found most interesting,  is that the museum gives examples of the Bible’s historical influence on wars, nations and people. Such as The Revolutionary War, Scientist Galileo, Reformer Martin Luther and the formation of the United States of America.

To suggest that one book, could have that kind of influence on that wide array of events and people…perhaps the Bible is worth a read and a visit to the Museum of the Bible.

Do Aliens Walk Among us? Well do they?

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

23,000 U.S. adults surveyed asking “Do believe aliens walk among us?” 20% said “Yes” aliens do walk among us dressed as humans. The Chinese poll responded double with 40% polled saying “I believe!”

Wow, if that is true, how do you tell who is my real brother and who is from another planet?  Do they hide their looks with a homo-sapien rubber mask or perhaps technology to morphs their looks? If you ask an alien if they are an alien, are they compelled to tell you the truth? I’m confused, but apparently these people are not.

One popular 40 year old theory stated emphaticaly this Earth was visited by aliens tens of thousands of years ago and the aliens genetically altered and advanced the caveman’s human development. Check out the 1970’s classic documentary, Chariots of the gods.

In the book Secrets of the Lost Races, author Rene Noorbergen does a tremendous job answering this alien question by postulating that 4,000 years ago, in the wake of a world wide flood, an intelligent giant human race were left to rebuild the devastation and responsible for all the impossibly built ancient technological mega-structures and anomalous inventions. Not Aliens.

Alien flying saucer sightings, reported in the news and on video are compelling. The physically impossible flight trajectories documented on video and sworn testimony by credible people are compelling. But what are they? If there is no such things as aliens, then this is either man-made or it’s a super-natural. If super-natural, this it’s an elaborate hoax Satan and his angels are orchastrating. I believe it’s a set-up for something in the near future. Word is, be careful how you process sensory information. Because if we live through the days preceding the 2nd coming of Christ, seeing will not be believing.

Shroud of Turin – Burial Cloth of Jesus?

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Apparently those who believe in its authenticity are going to great lengths to map out digitally and recreate this human image, graphically embedded in cloth, into a 3D equivalent which is going on display in Turin, Italy April 10th-May 23rd 2010.

Yes that’s right in order to see every nuance this supposed image of Christ the curator’s will be passing out 3D glasses to attendees and giving an opportunity to study this one-of-a-kind artifact themselves in the third dimension.

Is the Shroud of Turin a hoax? Can the image really be the energy of a Devine being, being released at death, like an x-ray, captured in fabric? Is it really the burial cloth of Christ?

Here’s the problem, the New Testament records that the grave cloths were in 2 pieces: 1.) Head cloth 2.) Body cloth, wrapped around the deceased person’s body. The Shroud of Turin however is one long piece that begins at the feet, travels up and around the head and back down the back side to the feet again as one complete covering.

Also carbon dating suggests an age of around 1260-1390A.D.  Christ died around 34 A.D.

So as much as one may want to believe it’s evidence of God, we believe it’s a hoax.  Whether it was created to fool people or to honor God cannot be determined, the artist never recorded his or her intensions for us to consider.

A.D. 1440 Vinland Map Vindicated!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Vinland Map Version_1_333kb In school, we were taught Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.  However many evidences have been presented  attempting  to dethrone the traveling Italians honor.

The “anomalous” american discoveries vying to contradict and prove of an earlier eastern arrival such as ancient stone works, mysterious coins with dates before his arrival, Mid-West Egyptian like hieroglyphics etched in stone did not possess the strength of argument to overturn such a deeply held prized distinction…until mid 2009.

The Vinland map has been known since 1957. Written on parchment and ink, this map shows the outlines of Europe and parts of Africa. However as you scan to the west your eye easily recognizes Iceland and a bit more to the left and there is Greenland. But keep traveling across the ocean what do we see…New Foundland?  What is a section of North America doing on a map carbon dated at 1440?  That’s a half a century before the Queen gave Chris the green light for his own gig.

The latest analysis completed by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts announced July 17, 2009 declared the map is real, not a hoax. That may make some uncomfortable as one significant piece of history would need to be rewritten. This map adds another piece of evidence that the Vikings were perhaps the first to Discover America as early as 1000 A.D.

What this all means is not all the pieces of the anthropological puzzle have been discovered nor have they been assembled without the possibility of having to go back and rewrite history. Time will tell it’s tale, if we let it.
