4.10 – ALIENS & DINOSAURS (5.4.12)

ROCKY EVIDENCE [11d]

Dinosaur Valley State Park. Glen Rose, Texas. Here, in 1930, Roland T. Bird, field explorer for the American Museum, reported finding “clearly defined” human footprints alongside dinosaur tracks, in the same exposed layer of riverbed limestone.

“Some researchers found human footprints alongside the footprints of dinosaurs. There is other evidence, from other parts of the world, that shows that human beings like us were present during the time of the dinosaurs.”

 – Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

“We’ve found human footprints, dinosaurs and all types of fossils that scientists tell us that should not be in the same level as man, but we find them coexisting.”

Dr. Willie E. Dye, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist)

“Now, we have never thought about this because science has told us that there are 65 million years between us and them. But there is, again, archaeological and geological evidence to suggest that this is not the case. There are footprints which show ancestors of ours and dinosaurs in the same stratum.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Could these fossilized footprints really be evidence that, at some point, humans actually coexisted with dinosaurs? According to mainstream scientists, the fossil evidence found at Dinosaur Valley is inconclusive at best.

“There are three basic dinosaur eras – the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Actually, these were named not for the dinosaurs, but for the various rock structures that were found at that time. The Triassic dates back about 250 to 200 million years ago, the Jurassic, 200 to 135 million years ago; and the final, the Cretaceous, 135 to 65 million years ago.”

Franklin Ruehl, Ph.D. (Theoretical Physicist / Cryptozoologist)

“It is simply impossible to say that every single dinosaur of planet Earth completely disappeared, and the likelihood is that at least some definitely survived for at least several more million years.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

The most widely used scientific method to determine the age of fossils is by a process known as carbon dating – a technique that measures the rate of decay and radioactivity in an organic object.

“Carbon-14, it’s not a stable isotope, so it decays over time, whereas the C-12, carbon-12, does not decay, so by measuring the two against each other, we’re able to get very general age.”

Ben Firmstrom (Cartographer / Explorer)

“In order to do carbon dating, you need organic material. You need wood or bone – something that lived. A piece of stone can’t be carbon-dated, and often, archaeologists are reduced to finding something under that piece of stone, which is organic, and dating that, and then making the assumption, not necessarily correct, that the carving of the stone dates to the period of the thing under it.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“For objects that are millions of years old, there is no scientific method that will allow us to date the object or bone itself. They have to date the dinosaur bone according to the age of the deposits in which it is found. There are methods that will allow them to date these deposits.”

   – Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

“Carbon dating results don’t get published in peer review journals. We have so many things happening in the world of science whereby it is clear that scientists are playing a game. And so this notion that somehow dinosaurs completely disappeared 65 million years ago is now something which science as such is really beginning to push holes in, as well.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“Carbon dating assumes that the concentration of radiocarbon, carbon-14, is always a constant. And I think this is an assumption which may not be may not be true, because carbon-14 is produced as a result of certain cosmic ray interactions in the atmosphere. But if those cosmic ray interactions changed in the past, which they may well have done, then the production of carbon-14 that is present in the atmosphere at the time when it was fixed in whatever it is that are being tested, will have not been the same as it is now.”

– Christopher Busby, Ph.D. (Chemical Physicist),
(Scientific Secretary, European Committee on Radiation Risk)

But if the fossil evidence of dinosaurs cannot be reliably dated, might some bones actually be from a time thousands, or even millions, of years after paleontologists believe they became extinct? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer is yes, and they point to additional evidence found in South America.

Ica, Peru. Here, in 1961, workers in the Ocucaje Desert unearthed a collection of carved andesite stones, many depicting what appear to be human encounters with dinosaurs. And since then, approximately 50,000 of these mysterious stones have been found across the region.

“I have photographed some hundreds of them in a collection in the city of Ica. And there was an old professor, Dr. Cabrera. The Indians brought him stones from all over the country of Peru, and on these stones is these fantastic engravings.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Peruvian physician Javier Cabrera began researching what have become known as the Ica stones in 1966. Ranging in size from small pebbles to large boulders, Dr. Cabrera’s museum preserves over 20,000 of these strange rock carvings.

“All dinosaurs died about 60 million of years ago, so normally, no human being should ever have seen a dinosaur. But there are wonderful pictures, engravings on stone, where you see humans and dinosaurs together. Sometimes the humans are even riding on the back of the dinosaurs.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“What we have here is an Ica burial stone, which is very unique, and what it depicts is that man and dinosaurs lived contemporaneously. We see the various triceratops, brachiosaurus and T. rex – those type of creatures. So, these Icas had to either see them or they knew a lot more about the dinosaurs, because they drew them precisely.”

Dr. Willie E. Dye, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist)

Although many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the stones date from the 5th-century BC to the early 13th-century AD, there are those in the scientific community who remain skeptical about their origin. But consider this – just the enormous number of stones would have required that an artist carve more than 1,000 of them a year every year for 45 years. But even if the Ica stones are proven to be real, more questions remain. What happened to the dinosaurs? Did they simply get hunted to extinction? If so, by whom? And why?

“Imagine a period in time when there are very few human beings about on this planet. And maybe there are dinosaurs about. These beings could easily kill our ancestors. If our ancestors were in an environment where there were dinosaurs, this would be the greatest threat to their survival.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Might the dinosaurs have proven to be too big, too territorial, or simply too deadly for mankind to allow their survival? Or was their demise part of a larger plan, not by humans, but by otherworldly beings, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists speculate? And they believe further evidence can be found in the study of Earth-threatening asteroids.
