I have seen, and touched as a kid in the ‘60s, the tracks in the Paluxy river in Glen Rose.
I was watching a program on the science channel about dino tracks being dpotted by a satellite in another river.
These are from the Cretacious Period about 100 million years ago. The mentioned that the landscape was different back then.
Different, but a creek bed lasted 200 million years? How does a shallow creek, shallow enough for a dinosaur to walk down, last for 100 million uesrs?

It’s not 100 million years old for starters.

The tracks were likely made in mud flats that were subsequently buried by more sediment.

The 100 million years is the duration of additional layers of sedimentation and then erosion to expose that layer again.

Lol so we exist in the perfect timeline to see a 3” deep foot print?

That’s like Big Bang 2 level luck.

[mdk]Well they were likely freshly made tracks by living dinosaurs.I have friends that have personally seen Stegosaurus on mission trips to the Texas hill country.[/mdk]

The creek channels turn up in the same place? I would think the geology would change enough that the creek beds would move.

It wasn't a creek back then.  It was probably lower lying area.  Uplift and erosion.

How do you know it was a "creek channel" back then?


Edit:  perhaps the creek moving to where it is now exposed the tracks, as opposed to exposing the tracks in another location had it moved differently?

Those are not the only tracks.  Just the ones that have been exposed by the creeks current location.

You didn't really think your question through before you asked it, did you?

Nope!  Were the tracks left behind because Dino was carrying a load of 9mm ammo?
Link Posted: 1/17/2021 2:59:23 AM EST
Maybe it was lava and if you follow the tracks long enough they turn into stump holes

Who knows how many millions we don’t see because they are buried?

I live 3 hours from the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. I find fossilized shells, sand dollars , shark teeth and other sea critters from time to time.

Living along the Fall Line of an ancient sea is interesting, not only in fossils you find but the geography of the region.

The Earth is older than alot of Christians want to believe.

No, it's not even close to that level luck.

T. Rex is closer to humans in timeline than to stegosaurus. Just thinking about how many dinos lived and died between those two species would mean unbelievable amounts of dead and gone dinos BEFORE they were extinct. Then factor in each one living 10 years and imagine how many steps one would take in a lifetime. Then take that obscenely large number and compare it to the amount of tracks we've found preserved. It's a minuscule fraction of a minuscule fraction of preserved bones, steps, etc.

The ridge on the southern edge of Wetumpka, Alabama is the rim of a meteorite impact crater. 85 million years ago, this event would have been one hell of a show if you'd been thirty miles north on the white sand beaches of the continent of Appalachia.

Thing change, yo.

If it was a creek bed when they walked in it wouldn't the creek just have washed the tracks away?

Yep out at Clayton lake. And then across the road from black Mesa there is allegedly some but I have never looked.

At Glen Rose, the tracks are under the park itself. The river is slowly eroding the banks, revealing more tracks.

When my family was younger, we would climb down to the river with brooms and clean out the silt in the tracks every summer. The crowds loved it. We would wade around the bend of the river, cleaning as we went.

I have a number of pictures from each expedition. They're on a laptop I have stored somewhere. I'll look for them.


As a Christian, I often ponder the Creation details in Genesis ch 1 thru ch 2:10 and the "time" involved. But, I'm convinced the "time" elapsed in Ch 1 verses 1 and 2 could encompass millions and billions of years.

Pretty much.  I've seen perfect fish fossils on rock faces.  They weren't visible before and at some point they will no longer be.

And to think we missed them by less than 6000 years.
