‘Dino’ might

The Rev. Steve Kern says, “I challenge (James) Nimmo to refute the observable evidence that has convinced me that dinosaurs and man lived at the same time.”

The so-called evidence of dinosaurs (excluding birds) coexisting with humans is so horrid that it is widely held in disrepute even in creationist circles. The most common claim, the tracks at the Paluxy River in Texas, is rejected by Answers in Genesis and other creationist organizations.

I found Kern’s “Dinosaurs and Man” online and it uses the Paluxy claim. He also says “Malachite Man” was found in “supposedly 140 million years old” rocks, which is outright false. He cites “Dr. Carl Baugh,” whose claims are
debunked. Creation Ministries International’s website says “he (Baugh)
unfortunately uses a lot of material that is not sound scientifically.
So we advise against relying on any ‘evidence’ he provides.”

Kern’s
remaining examples are just as pathetic. Kern’s letter then claims that
there are no intermediate fossils. No matter how many times
creationists say it — as if they think that they can change reality by
repeating mantras — it will not change that there are many known fossil
intermediates.

Take,
for example, mammals and their synapsid ancestors. There are so many
intermediates that it’s hard to draw the line between non-mammal and
mammal, except by arbitrary definition. Those fossils show in detail how
bones that were jawbones became the bones of our middle ear.
