Waco Sudden Death Mammoth Site – September 2015

Waco Sudden Death Mammoth Site

Largest Single Mammoth Death Site

In July 2015, President Barack Obama declared the Waco Sudden Death Mammoth Site a National Monument. Joe Taylor began working on this site with Dr. Calvin Smith and Ralph Vinson in 1988. Smith and Taylor discussed the possibility of molding the large mammoth heard bull with a juvenile on his tusks. In 1993 Taylor complete skeletons of the bull and juvenile. Molding even one of the mammoths while still in the ground (in-situ) was considered virtually impossible, but Taylor went even further, molding the juvenile in two layers, making it the largest mold ever made of animals still in the ground as well as the most complex. To date, no similar project has been attempted by major universities or museums.

The importance of molding a fossil skeleton still in the ground is that it allows us to make an exact reproduction of the fossils that can be studied under controlled conditions or displayed in a museum setting. In fact, Taylor made a reproduction, colored exactly like the original, which is now part of the new Mayborn Museum complex at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.

Taylor’s long involvement with the site has given him a different perspective than will not be told at the new monument site. Taylor explained to former president of Baylor University that this mammoth heard was probably buried during the crucifixion of Christ two thousand years ago when the “the earth did quake, and the rocks rent” (Matt. 27:51). The Bosque River (which intersects the Brazos), just south of the mammoth site, is the result of a severe earthquake after the Biblical global flood. This earthquake split the limestone layer, causing the northern half to sink down a hundred feet. This would cause the high water table in the Waco area to become liquefied. If this happened when the heard of mammoths were gathered, it would cause the ground to become mud, water would rush up, drowning the babies, and causing the adults to become trapped in the liquefied mud. This would result in the sudden death and rapid burial of the heard.

“At a dinosaur dig a few years ago, Buddy Davis and I had discussed doing some music together, and this summer, David Rives and I did some music together at two digs we were on.  Our schedules are usually pretty full, but we were able to meet with Buddy for a few days and try out some ideas.  Don’t know where it might go, but it was great to jam a bit with two really talented guys.  It was not sponsored by AiG, TBN, or Mt.Blanco.  Just us gitar pickers” ~ Joe Taylor

We’re in the news again! Randal Gabrel, in the blue shirt and tie (see video in link below), is the Christian oil man we sculpted the big Stegosaurus for.  This dinosaur was finished and delivered to it’s home in Woodward, Oklahoma in October of 2012.
