The Fossilized Pickle Mystery (Video)

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.

Lost World Museum Opening May 25th 2020

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

For those who’ve been following us since 2005…thank you! For those here for the first time, buckle your seat belt.
Why…?
15 years of build-up has created a very potent purpose for this site and museum. Which is for the express purpose to begin or begin again a dialogue in the mind of each visitor or among their friends, to discuss the origins question of whether we came from an Ape, an Alien or Adam.
No matter your conclusion, the museum environment  will be free of a critical spirit that you find on many sites that espouse one flavor of the answer to the query.

So what does this all mean?

In the coming days and weeks we will be dropping more about us, it and why it matters, a little at a time before the official launch in May 2020.

Unveiling of The Tree of Life – December 2017

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Tree of Life

To unveil a painting is an uncommon thing. When you consider the process of creating a painting, from concept to finished art, it can take months and sometimes years to get the final result the artist wants.

          (Elfred Lee’s The Invitation)

It’s been over 13 years since the museum unveiled Elfred Lee’s Noah’s Ark painting titled: “The Invitation to a crowd of well over one hundred in Syracuse, NY.  Many of whom took a print home to place on their walls.

On Saturday December 30th 2017 at 11am, another Elfred Lee original fine art piece will make it’s debut and you are invited. The unveiling will be conducted at the conclusion of a talk titled the same as the painting The Tree of Life” 

The painting is so colorful and the design  inspiring so that the few who have had a sneak peak glimpse were overwhelmed with positive emotion.

The location of the event will be at the Fulton SDA Church 45 West 4th St. South in Fulton, NY 13069. Here’s the DIRECTIONS    See you there!

Eat From This Tree and Live Forever

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

 

Who wouldn’t want to live forever… and according to the book of Genesis, The Tree of Life was originally the medium God was to use, to perpetuate human existence throughout eternity. However there was one problem. A nearby counterfeit tree had tempting fruit, and it’s affect, resulted in death.

Fast forward 6,000 years and you have the Earth ready to “close up shop”, awaiting for it’s Devine “make-over.”
When this happens, this Tree of Life, the same tree, protected and held in storage from Genesis, will be replanted on Earth and the inhabitants will once again eat its life giving fruit…and so begins again, humanities journey of eternal life.

Archeological illustrator, Elfred Lee, assembled the necessary research to construct the only accurate depiction of the Tree mentioned in the book of Genesis and then making a second appearance in the book of Revelation.

This image on canvas comes in 4 edition sizes. Go to our MUSEUM STORE to explore the Tree which awaits our return…to give us Life.
