Yes I know there was a bit of tongue in cheek, with the way you wrote it, but in fairness I still think the idea of a duel funded dig is not beyond the imposable, it would take some serious ‘bridge mending’ to be sure.

I find it unrealistic because the goal is different. The paelontologist is looking to expand on the information about the geologic time scale and the creationist is trying to disprove. What a terrible conflict of interest.

As for the scientists not wanting to find ‘something’, I disagree, I can assure they would not fear finding a human foot print, because such a thing in the Mesozoic strata is an impossibility.

Even of that meant abandoning the evolution theory? Keeping in mind there is definite evidence supporting the find.

Not sure I understand the question, if you mean “give me an example” I would answer an “out of sequence fossil” this would falsify evolution.
If you mean ‘how the evidence is presented’, I personally only require one rule, and that is honesty. I.e. If you present evidence, and I examining it and find it erroneous, or that the source is questionable, or is based on a false premise, I expect one to concede the point and not leave the debate hoping that all will be forgotten. Examining the claim in detail will find the error.

I meant the current evidences used for creation, what do you think of them? Do think it is deceptive or inaccurate?

Well perhaps your right, I’ve always been a bit of an optimist. I would like to think such things as religious persuasion would not hinder science. I am only looking at this as in both parties do the digging together and agree that protocol is observed, i.e. in-situ pictures taken, no one takes the prints away, that sort of thing. Both have to do that anyway to uncover the prints. If one were to dig a well for oil or water, the digging is the same. Still we’ll never know if one never tries.

If a human fossil was found in the jaws of a tyrannosaurus, type of thing, I don’t think one could do much else, but abandon evolution.

Both but mainly deceptive.
