people have been persuaded by our media and educational system that there was
an “Age of Dinosaurs”, during which no modern-type animals or plants existed.
Reconstructions of this supposed era (below right) show a very different
world from the one we know, with no sign of any modern animals or plants. The
truth is very different. There is abundant fossil evidence that most modern
groups co-existed with the dinosaurs.

CATCH OUT EVOLUTIONISTS!

Carl Werner,(right) who studied biology at the University of Missouri and later
became a doctor of medicine, was challenged by a college classmate to prove
that evolution was either right or wrong. Rising to the challenge, he embarked
on a fascinating experiment. He explains, “It was based on a simple prediction.
That if evolution was not true, and that animals did not change over time, I
should be able to find modern-appearing plants and modern-appearing animals
in the dinosaur rock layers, and this is, in fact, what I found… Museums were,
for the most part, not displaying the most important vertebrate fossils. They
were kept out of the view of the public.” Over 13 years, Dr Werner travelled
160,000 miles, visiting 10 dinosaur dig sites and 60 natural history museums.
He searched the literature, and began interviewing scientists, and discovered
that all the major groups of modern plants and animals had indeed been found
as fossils in the same rocks as dinosaurs. In many cases, fossil specimens were
given a different name to their living counterparts to hide the fact that they
were identical. Dr Werner’s prediction was fulfilled, and his conclusion, based
on the facts, is that evolution has not happened. His research is recorded in
his book and DVD series "Evolution: the Grand Experiment." (available
is found in museums throughout the world, although most of it is hidden from
public view. Why? Have evolutionists purposely hidden it in order to keep
the “evolution show” on the road? Dr Zhe-Xi Luo, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology,
Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, has admitted: “In a sense,
‘The Age of Dinosaurs’ … is a misnomer.”(1)
In this issue we give you the opportunity
to consider some of the facts for yourself.

birds evolve from dinosaurs? That’s the popular theory. But growing evidence
reveals that birds lived with dinosaurs — and they were not primitive birds,
but modern types. Road-runners (left), are popularly featured in American cartoon
films. Following the discovery of fossil footprints in dinosaur-age rocks in
China, Martin Lockley of the Dinosaur Tracks Museum, University of Colorado,
commented, “It is a huge surprise to find evidence of a roadrunner-like species
darting around beneath the feet of Cretaceous dinosaurs…. If the tracks had
been found in very recent deposits in North America, we would have assumed they
were made by the well-known roadrunner, but finding them in the Cretaceous of
China, long before even the nearest relatives of roadrunners had evolved, makes
us call them 'roadrunner-like'.”(1)
However, that is a cop-out, since the evidence suggests they were true
road-runner tracks. They just don’t fit the evolutionists’ theory. Forty fossil
specimens of a very modern-looking, web-footed, duck-like bird named Gansus
yumenensis were discovered in similarly aged rocks in China. BBC News reported:
“Ducks may have been paddling around in primeval swamps when T. rex was king
of the dinosaurs.”(2)
And the science journal Nature commented, "At least duck, chicken and
ratite bird relatives were co-extant [living] with non-avian dinosaurs.” Gansus,
which resembled modern grebes, “could fly like modern birds," said expedition
member Jerald Harris of Dixie State College in Utah. “In short, no one expected
to find a bird this modern in rocks this old."(3)
Some scientists claimed that Gansus was a “missing link in bird evolution.”
How could it be, since it was 100% bird? These finds totally undermine the popular
theory of bird evolution.

collection of fossil animals discovered off the coast of Florida suggests that
present day deep-sea fauna like starfish and sea cucumbers (left) and crabs
appeared earlier than previously believed and survived periods of mass extinctions
similar to those that supposedly wiped out the dinosaurs. Researcher Ben Thuy
commented, "We were amazed to see that a 114 million year old deep-sea assemblage
was so strikingly similar to the modern equivalents."(1)
Were they surprised because these facts don’t fit their theory?

fossils = deep trouble for evolution
humans once live with dinosaurs? Maybe the cartoons are correct!

A SERIOUS CHALLENGE
In his famous Origin of Species (1859) Charles Darwin wrote:
“From so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful
have been and are being evolved.” Since then, this theory has become widely
accepted as fact even though we now know there is no such thing as a “simple”
organism. Increasingly, evolutionists are having to try to accommodate,
even hide, evidence which undermines their theory We have drawn attention
to some of the little-known evidence that modern plants and animals were
living at the same time as the dinosaurs — whenever that happened to be.
We believe it was thousands not millions of years ago, but if modern animals
and plants have remained virtually unchanged for 200 million years or more,
this is an even more serious challenge to Darwin’s theory of continuous
change. So far, no human fossils have been found in the same rocks as dinosaurs,
but there are numerous historical records of people meeting dinosaur-like
reptiles. And the discovery in 2005 of soft tissue resembling blood cells
in a T. Rex leg bone — a discovery recently confirmed, despite vehement
denials (1) —has also shocked scientists
who believe dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago. Soft tissue couldn’t
survive for millions of years, so maybe humans did walk with dinosaurs.
We believe the evidence fits the Biblical account of origins much better
than Darwin’s theory. Genesis tells us that God created all basic types
of animals and plants within a short period of time, so we would expect
to find evidence for their co-existence. We also believe there is a purpose
in creation, and that God created us to know Him. Famous scientist Blaise
Pascal said, “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which
cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made
known through Jesus. “ The Bible says, “He sent his only Son into the world
that we might live through him." (1 John 4:
