Yeah - I discovered that as I did some google searches. I was not happy
having to reply as vaguely as I did so I went looking for the story and
discovered that everybody, including those who most wanted it to be true,
have conceded that it was a fake.
On 10/9/2005 3:46 PM Mike Marlow mumbled something about the following:
Not everybody has conceded it was a fake, Dr. Carl E. Baugh has been
making some wild claims and is supposedly doing research at Taylor Trail
again. Unfortunately, he's destroyed many of the tracks by pouring
plaster into some and then using hammers and chisels to remove the
casting instead of using rubber castings. A huge chunk of plaster still
remains in one fo the tracks at Ryals Trail that he and some associates
Sorry - should have put this in my previous reply...
There are cave drawings all over the place that depict dinosaurs. To my
"creationist" (as I've been dubbed...) mind, there is enough circumstantial
evidence for me to assume that man and dinosaur did coinhabit, since I don't
give credit to coyotes and apes to be able to create those drawings.
And - while I'm at it... I did find a plethora of articles which debunked
what I had read years ago about the human footprint superimposed on the
Do a quick google search Duane. There's a ton of stuff - pictures of the
ancient drawings, etchings on pottery, etc. I guess it could remain
arguable whether one agrees that they are pictures of dinosaurs or "stylized
game", and really - at that point which one of us would really know? A good
number of the stylizations though, bear a striking resemblance to what we
now consider to be what some of the dinosaurs looked like.
I used to have some magazines containing drawings of women by a guy
I never took this to be proof that such women actually existed.

You have obviously never seen a 'Vargas woman' drawing. Even the most
perfect of today's, or yesterday's, beauties fall way short of the
idealization he drew. No woman has ever looked like that, nor is one
likely to, so it might be sensibly argued that all his visions of women
were in his head, well protected from reality, about like some of the
concepts expressed on here.

Sigh. Ever hear the phrase "morphogenetic space?" I didn't think so.
Triceratops and rhinoceros, and some wierd Miocene critters, plus others I
don't recall at the moment. Big grazers with horns on their schnozzes.
Evolution led to all of them, by natural selection. It takes a special
mind to see apatosaurus in a cave painting, which cave has game bones in
it. Wake up and smell the fricken' coffee.
Ya know - this is precisely what I was commenting on earlier. Like I said,
I have no horse in this race, but it is evident that simple discourse,
questions, and potentially an element of my belief that may differ from your
belief, seriously threatens you and others with a response style such as
yours. I've admitted that I don't have the ammunition to do battle on this
field, but that does not stop me from holding a certain curiosity. It is
rather amazing to watch the over-reactions like this that suggest a certain
sense of being threatened much more than they suggest a greater
BTW - thanks for the wake up call - I love the smell of coffee...
Mike, that reply may have been a little gruff, but the facts it stated
are true. Usenet as a whole is a little short on politeness, but that's
just something we all have to get used to. If some particular
individual is grossly impolite, folks just tend not to read his/her posts.
If you really want to see some impolite replies, ask what color latex
paint you should use on cherry furniture :-).
