9 to 11:30 am – Footprint Tracks Contradict Evolutionary Geology
While most, if not all, known dinosaur footprints are found in a single layer of sediment, an extraordinary inchnofossil trackway at Slick Rock, Colorado, vertically traverses four bedding planes of rock, the lower two horizontal and the upper two crossbedded. Current geology identifies the host rock as eolian or “a combination of tidal flat and sand dune layers” created over a roughly 150,000-year timespan. However, the track’s preservation clearly indicates rapid deposition of all four rock layers, as well as quick lithification. Toe/finger imprints in the footprints, along with mud “up-push” and deformation of the surrounding sediment strongly suggest a marine depositional environment. The vast areal extent of the host rock further indicates a massive flood. Not insignificantly, the site also marks the first known occurrence of bipedal dinosaur footprints in Middle Jurassic rocks.
