Although I am more familiar with the Paluxy foot prints than the Burdick foot print, if the claim was â€œa dinosaur contemporaryâ€ then firstly alarm bells start to ring because this is goes against current theory and thus invites scrutiny. A quick search of the web shows that it was a rather clumsy fraud (two monumental mistakes â€“ evidence of carving not erosion, and the carving was done on the underside of the slab!).
You know, everytime I hear the story as to why these prints are frauds, the story is always different. And no evidence to back it up. Only hearsay.
Stories in the order I have heard them. But this may not be all of them, or in the order they came out. Have not research it that far. But it would be an interesting subject to gather information about.
1) The foot prints were faked. Not much of an explaination about how or why, or evidence.
2) They were craved and faked. Accusations that a creationist named Baugh, went out into a state park at night, and carved them. No evidence of this.
3) The foot prints under the slab that weighed over a ton. I am sure Baugh was able to move slab, carve it, move it back etc... before day break. No evidence of this.
4) His family admits in an interview, that can't be produced by any of the accusers, that Baugh did this.
5) One evolutionist even made the statement that the prints were there because a dino had human feet. And now I hear there's even a theory out saying we evolved from dinos. I wonder if this is evolutionists attempt to explain every human foot print that has been found among dino prints. It would allow some timeline changes .
You talk about alarms. Well when the accusations can't produce evidence, and keep changing, and still don't produce evidence. What kind of alarm does that produce? And one more thing. The accusations of defacing federal owned property is a federal offense. Carving those foot prints in the river bed, as some have accused, should put Baugh away in jail for a very long time. Then defrauding people, and making money off it is also a federal offense. And this is taking care of by the Federal Trade Commision.
In fact, here's the web page where the complaint about fraud can be placed about Carl Baugh: https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/dod/wsolcq$.sta...Z_ORG_CODE=PU01
Now, because it takes provable evidence to make such a claim. I dare anyone to file it. Why? All claims against Baugh are assumptions, and have always been. And some are even lies. So if the evolutionist who believe this, or say they have enough evidence. Take action.
If you really want to know what the truth is, then here's your chance. Because if the FTC deems this maybe true, they will require that the accusing side to present evidence. Then they will ask the accused to present their's. I have made this challenge at another forum once before. There were no takers then, and I doubt there will be any this time either. Why? When it comes down to truth, there are two types of evidence. One is assumed, and one is provable beyond doubt. I have yet to see any that is provable beyond doubt. But if anyone has it, the link is above. And you can post the progress of your complaint here.
But as I am so often reminded by evolutionists about evidence or information on the web. Anyone can say anything. And when you only want to hear and believe one side of a story, only a one sided decision can be made. But the FTC is required, by law, to listen to both. So unlike the treatment Baugh gets on the internet by so many, it will be on a fair playing field with the FTC.
