In 1971 Mike Turnage discovered dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy River in Glen Rose, Texas. What came to be known as the Turnage Patton Trail was a series of 157 footprints encased in 527 feet of solidified mud along the river bottom–the longest continuous dinosaur path on the North American continent! Dr. Carl Baugh began his excavation project in 1982 and has since uncovered over 400 dinosaur tracks…with over 80 human footprints interspersed in the same layer of Cretaceous limestone. In 1984 Dr. Baugh founded the Creation Evidence Museum of Texas to showcase his discoveries.
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, a hypothesis based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. It is more than a guess or a hunch, but may not yet have been established as incontrovertible fact through direct observation and/or repetition of occurrence.
When Darwin’s Theory of Evolution was introduced, many considered it highly controversial. They argued that evolution could never be proven because no one directly observed and recorded the beginning of the natural world, and the event would be impossible to repeat. Over time, though, scientists have observed directly and repeatedly the evolutionary changes that occur within species, and so the expanded theories pertaining to macro-evolution have gradually gained acceptance. So much so that the “counter” theory of Creationism, which used to be the predominant explanation, has fallen into disfavor and is often ridiculed as being “unscientific”.
But is it? Can Creation scientists explain the beginning of the natural world and support their theories through factual and reproducible observations and experiments?
Dr. Carl Baugh and a number of other scientists associated with the Creation Evidence Museum say, “Yes!”
The Creation Evidence Museum displays their evidence of the Creation model, features a well-stocked book store, hosts annual “Dino Digs” for students of all ages, and presents a monthly Director’s Lecture Series to explain their hypotheses. Their website also offers an impressive number of videos that explain the Theory of Scientific Creationism for those who might want to listen before making a decision.
