Term: Dinosaurs:."Originally referred to in the Hebrew Old Testament.(25 times).as "tannim".(plural of "tan").or "tannin".(collective singular), best translated as 'dragons'.(as is done in the 1611 Authorized KJV Bible translation), 'dinosaurs' has only been in the English vocabulary for 160 years.

The dinosaur family.

The term 'dinosaur', from the Greek "deinos".(terrible/terrifying).and "sauros".(lizard/reptile), was coined by Sir Richard Owen, England's pioneer anatomist and paleontologist, in order to describe the fossil bones and teeth of what he then believed were representatives of nine genera of giant reptiles presumed extinct.

Thus, on August 2, 1841, he proposed the name "Dinosauria".(a.k.a. "Archosauria" = 'ruling reptiles').for their taxonomic subclass classification at a meeting of the prestigious British Association for the Advancement of Science. It was officially accepted and later published in the 'Proceedings of the British Association for the Advancement of Science' in 1842.

The following text is from Chapter One.'Tracks Step on Evolution'.in the Dr. Carl Baugh book entitled.Dinosaur: Scientific Evidence that Men and Dinosaurs Lived Together:

"Tracks Step on Evolution." So ran the headlines of the Fort Worth, Texas.Star-Telegram.on Thursday evening, June 17th, 1982.

The article highlighted a series of controversial points resulting from an excavation the author had directed. Did dinosaurs really die out over sixty million years ago? Were there giant humans wandering the earth at the same time as the dinosaurs? Were the tracks at the Paluxy River area of Texas genuine or had they been deliberately carved out of the rock for sale to gullible tourists?

The headline appealed to me and so the theme for this book was born. Throughout its pages, questions are answered and compelling evidence is presented to show that dinosaur and human tracks at the Paluxy River in Texas do step on evolution. 

At the same time, they show forth new facts concerning the Genesis Flood.

The sedimentary rocks of Texas indeed tell a strange and intriguing story, supporting the biblical record of a worldwide flood in Noah's time:.Genesis chapters 6-9. An artifact was found in Ordovician strata near London, Texas. The stone, according to evolutionists, is over four hundred million years old, yet the artifact is an iron hammer, clearly manmade. How could a manmade object have been made four hundred million years ago? What buried it in sedimentary strata deep in the heart of Texas? See photo page 'Q' on their website. Type 'Glen Rose Texas dinosaurs' or 'Paluxy River dinosaurs and man together' into Google or Bing for more information.

Let us consider the ledges we excavated. It is Cretaceous limestone, dated by the University of Texas at one hundred eight million years. We excavated it during 1982 and in addition to the human footprints, we found other evidences of recency. Here was carbonized material, burned plant residue of modern kind. The limestone is younger than that plant from long ago, probably only minutes younger, for that burned plant had to be burned in the middle of the limestone as it was being formed.

Our major excavation was at the Paluxy River area, four miles out of the little town of Glen Rose, Texas. Thousands of tourists visit here every year to see the state park where evidence has been brought together to show that more than a dozen different types of dinosaurs roamed these Cretaceous beds at some time in the past.

The intrigue and the mystery of this whole area has been enhanced by the many reports of human tracks, as well as dinosaur tracks, found in the strata on the area of this riverbed for more than fifty years. An eighty-nine-year-old local resident, Emmit McFall, was ever ready to show pictures and recount discoveries of both human-like tracks and dinosaur footprints. So it was on Mr. McFalls farm that our first preliminary excavation began on Monday, March 15, 1982.

It should be stressed that there is considerable evidence to show that dinosaurs and human footprints have been found together by earlier excavators. One of them was Dr. Roland T. Bird from Harvard University and the American Museum of Natural History, at that time a leading geologist and paleontologist. He reported that a ledge of limestone had been ripped up in the Paluxy River area by a spring flashflood. In one of his sketches, he revealed that tracks were taken and put on display at the American Museum of Natural History and at Southern Methodist University and at the University of Texas and at Baylor University and at Brookland College.

At the top of the sketch a series of human-like tracks can be seen, including a notation by Dr. Bird himself, "Single giant track to American Museum of Natural History". Thus, we find that his drawings indicate there had been earlier findings similar to those we have made in our present excavations.

This.(from the beginning of this article about dinosaurs being contemporary with man).has been confirmed by taped interviews with local Glen Rose residents. Charlie Moss found the first human tracks in the Paluxy riverbed in 1910. Ernest "Bull" Adams followed this trail of tracks and documented their existence. Jim Ryals and Emmit McFall found other footprints through the years. Geologist Clifford Burdick, Ph.D., verified human tracks in the 1940's. Dr. Cecil Daugherty led large groups to the prints for years. Stan Taylor, Mike Turnage, Fred Beirle, Wilbur Fields and John Morris, Ph.D., added their own documentation.
