A Life Changing Experience for Excavators in Glen Rose, Texas

For more than 30 years, the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, Texas has been conducting dinosaur fossil digs for the general public. In the scorching heat of July, over 40 volunteers traveled from other states such as California, Nevada, Colorado, and Florida to come dig near the Paluxy River. This rare opportunity is only offered once a year where inexperienced excavators can come and personally discover fossils and dinosaur tracks for themselves.

This year brought out not only a fun team of interested excavators, but also an A-Team of specialists in Paleontology (Joe Taylor), Biology (Gary Parker Ph.D.), Archeology (Bruce Hall Ph.D. ABD), Mathematics (John Heffner), and Fossil Footprints (Aaron Judkins Ph.D.). The Founder and Director of the museum, Carl Baugh Ph.D. explained to volunteers that the excavation site was and still is the battlegrounds of today’s war between evolution science and creation science.

The dig was organized by scientist and spokesperson Dennis Peterson, who started each day of the week with the team meeting at the excavation site to dig in the morning hours. In the afternoon, the team met at the museum for a presentation by a specialist who spoke about the significance of their field of study in relation to creation science. At the end of the day, the team was given another presentation of how the evidence found at the site could not only strengthen one’s personal faith, but also the case for creation.

“An awesome experience and education,” Christine Tonkin said, a volunteer.

In 1982 near the Paluxy, Baugh, along with a team of specialists, discovered human fossil footprints on the same layer of limestone where dinosaur footprints had also been uncovered. This coincided with the theory that man and dinosaur lived at the same time. Although this find has been under the scrutiny of many geologists in the past, it is the indisputable evidence that has brought people back to this location year after year.

“In spite of all the criticism and negativity, the truth brings you back,” Baugh said.

There was not, however, a significant find on the site excavated this summer, but deep friendships were made by individuals who were just strangers a week before. Testimonies were shared on how the evidence found near the Paluxy River has and will continue to inspire inquiring minds and the search for truth.

  1. How exciting. I would love to do this, but no nothing about it all. But, I have been watching the new show on tv about doing this. Very educational as well and a adventure for sure. Congrats to all involved, wonderful news. Keep on digging.
