Our Ica Stone Collection. Our collection (6 stones) are castings made from actual Ica stones by paleontologist Joe Taylor from the Mt Blanco Fossil Museum, and Creation Science Evangelism’s casting expert John Gusti.
A Picture of the Taylor Trail. Here is an impressive photo of a clearly human trail being intersected by a trail of dinosaur prints. The circled print (next slide) is particularly impressive as it falls within a three-toed dinosaur track. They must have been made at close to the same time. For excellent treatment of this site, see geologist Don Patton’s website www.bible.ca/tracks. R. Patton also has a great DVD you can order called “The Record of the Rocks”, which discusses the Paluxy River tracks at length.
Here is a cast of the girl/dino print which we acquired from Joe Taylor in Crosbyton, Texas. Notice the human-like depression running almost perpendicular to the direction the dinosaur was traveling. What other animal could make such a print?
Replica Ishtar Gate Dragon. In the sixth century B.C., King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon undertook many ambitious building projects. One was an elaborate and ornate gate adorned with sculptures of many animals readily identifiable. Among them are these puzzling creatures. They look reptilian, with long necks and tails. Were the Babylonians seeing dragons (actually dinosaurs) way back then?
The teeth on this creature would lead a person to believe that it was a verocious carnivore. As we have just seen however, it is not always possible to determine an animal’s diet by looking at its teeth alone. According to the Bible, even a creature like this was a peaceful herbivore in the original creation.
“There is a petroglyph in Natural Bridges National Monument that bears a striking resemblance to a dinosaur, specifically a brontosaurus with a long tail and neck, small head and all… so far archaeologists have chosen barely to mention such oddities, then ignore them, but sooner or later the problem of extinct or anachronistic animal rock art must be scientfically studied and resolved.” Barnes and Pentleton, “Canyon Country: Prehistoric Indians: Their Cultures, Ruins, Artifacts, and Rock Art”, Wasatch Publishing Co., Salt Lake City, Utah, 1979, p. 201-203.
“Dr. Cyclone Covey, author of a book entitled Ancient Chinese Sojourners in America, verified that the symbols on the stone were ancient Chinese writings from 1,000 years earlier. His belief was that the “Granby Idol” was an artifact from ancient Chinese Trans-Pacific voyages. His book had theorized about this possibility. Other proponents of this theory believed that the Chinese and Japanese often sailed to the Americas as early as the fifth century AD. THOR Heyerdahl of Kon-Tiki fame similarly believed in these voyages…Was the Granby Idol proof of these voyages? Dr. Covey believed that the skill of ancient Chinese mariners made these voyages probable, but no artifacts had been found to prove it…His final conclusions were that the stone was some type of marker for travelers and the stone was made of fine-grained dolomite, a heavy stone common to northern China. Words on the stone that he was able to translate were “north” “river”, “fruit”, and “fish.” Jan Murphy, “Mysteries and Legends of Colorado: True Stories of the Unsolved and Unexplained”, pp 122-123

“If this stone can be proven genuine, it is the biggest find in all anthropological research and antedates anything on the American continent and is going to establish the remote antiquity of man. I have never seen such remarkable outlines of dinosaurs and mastodons!” Jean Allard Jeancon, archaeologist and curator of the Colorado Historical and Natural History Society; one time special archaeologist for the Bureau of Ethnology at the Smithsonian, “Le Grande Reporter”, 1923
