Evolution Says....

The date is exactly known when any prehistoric animal became extinct, millions of years ago.

The Facts Are .....

Fact #1

Woolly mammoths are stated by evolutionists as having died out more than 10,000 years ago. But remains have been found on an island off Siberia, which give radiocarbon ages of less than 4,000

years. Siberian Evenk Indians, when first contacted by Russians at the turn of the century had well-preserved mammoth skins, and reported them as still being alive as late as 1922. They described exactly the appearance and behaviour of the mammoths, and gave details of the animal's diet and how they were hunted. Nature Vol. 362 No. 6418, 1993, p:288-289. The Age (Melbourne), 29/3/93

Fact #2

Evolutionary theory dictates that the mastodon and the mammoth died out thousands and thousands of years ago. However, the bones of American mastodons unearthed in the early 1800's indicated that they had become extinct in the years prior to their excavation. Also, a report has shown that mastodons were in the recent memory of many North American Indian tribes. Another report in 1873 outlined an eyewitness account of a living herd of mammoths in Siberia. The discovery of mammoth paintings in the caves of Les Cambarelles (France) also indicates that they were alive with modern humans. The Scientific Monthly (Washington), Vol. 75, 1952 p:215-221; Zoologist (London), series 2, Vol. 8, 1873 p:3731-3733

Fact #3

Coelacanth was long thought to be an extinct ancestor of land creatures, but it has been found living in the Indian Ocean. New Scientist, February 12, 1987 p:20

Fact #4

According to evolution, five-toed llamas became extinct 30 million years ago. Yet, archaeologists have found pottery with etchings of these creatures on it. Skeletons of the five-toed llama have even been found in diggings of the Tiahuanacan cultural. E. Colbert, "Evolution of the Vertebrates", Wiley: New York, 1955

Fact #5

In 1977 some Japanese fishermen hauled aboard in their nets the rotting body of a large sea creature. They took photos and threw it back. From the photos, Japanese scientists identified it as a Plesiosaur - a sea reptile that supposedly died out 70 million years ago. Creation Ex Nihilo, Vol. 16 No. 3, 1994 p: 31

Fact #6

The Illustrated London News in February 1856 reported that workmen digging a railway tunnel in Culmony (France), disturbed a huge winged creature. The creature was described as livid black, with a long neck and sharp teeth. It looked like a bat, and its skin was thick and oily. Its wing-span was measured at 3.22 m. It died soon after. A naturalist 'immediately recognised it as belonging to the genus Pterodactylus anas' - a pterodactyl known only as a fossil. The Illustrated London News, February 9, 1856 p:166

Fact #7

Belgian zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans, and Chicago University biologist Roy Mackal found evidence pointing to the existence of pterodactyls living in the jungles of Central Southern Africa. Out of fear of scorn from western scientists, their evidence was kept low-keyed as it contradicted evolutionary theory, and was a threat to evolutionary dating procedures. Bernard Heuvelmans, "On the Track of Unknown Animals", Hill & Wang: New York, 1959; Roy P. Mackal, "Searching for Hidden Animals", Doubleday: New York, 1980 p:54

Fact #8

A Brontosaurus-like creature was claimed to have been seen by a prospector in the Belgian Congo in 1919. Re-citing of the news report in "On This Day", Newcastle Herald (Australia), December 29, 1993

Fact #9

Bones of a young duck-billed dinosaur found recently in Montana (USA) have been estimated to be 70 million years old. The finders commented that the bones appeared to be fresh despite their age and mineralization. An analysis of their mineral content showed them to have a calcium/phosphorous ratio very similar to fresh bones. Science, December 24, 1993 p:2020-2023
