The Taylor Trail is finally cast!
The Taylor Trail is the most controversial fossil track way in the
world. Were these mysterious footprints made by a giant man? They
certainly appear to be human. But at the same time as a dinosaur??!
And therein is the problem. Evolutionists have insisted that the
limestone is eighty million years old. So therefore they believe the
tracks cannot be human since humans and dinosaurs supposedly did not
exist at the same time. There are numerous dinosaur track ways in the
very same layers of limestone. There is even a dinosaur track way that
goes right across the Taylor Trail.
The tracks were exposed in the 1970s by Stan Taylor (no relation to Joe
Taylor of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum.) Then in 1999 Joe
Taylor made the molds. The tracks are in a layer of limestone in the
Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas and stretch for fifty feet. All fifty
feet were molded and now cast.
The tracks were almost impossible to mold. But Don Patton and a team
from Carl Baugh’s Creation Evidence Museum sand bagged the river and
dried the track layer long enough for Taylor and Don Yaeger to coat them
with latex rubber overlaid with a plaster mother mold which was
necessary to keep the molds in place.
The cold short November day was really not enough time to let the mold
cure, but Joe Taylor waited as long as possible with the team using hair
dryers powered by a generator to dry the latex. Taylor could see the
water creeping up through the limestone and all hands worked to cut the
mold into nine sections about five feet long and placed them immediately
back onto their mother molds and they were carried across the water in
By special arrangement with Creation Evidence Museum, Otis Kline of the
Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum in Montana sponsored the repair and
restoration of the long-neglected molds. (Note: The Taylor Trail may now
be seen at the Glendive Dinosaur &
Fossil Museum.) This is the first time a cast
has ever been pulled from them.
This track way has been the source of probably the most heated debate
over the question of men and dinosaurs living at the same time.
Evolutionists have devoted volumes to try and prove they are just
dinosaur tracks. But just as many Creationists say they are human.
WELL…now everyone can study the tracks for themselves and they don’t
have to wade in knee-deep water to do it. I consider this one of the
best things I have ever done for the scientific study of paleontology
and the question of origins.
Special thanks to Drs. Carl Baugh and Don Patton for their persistence
in studying these tracks. They are a lasting tribute to the many men and
women who worked to make molding them possible. Come and see!

There will be a press conference at 10: AM Thurs. April 12, 2007.
The public as well as the scientific community is invited. Doors will open Thursday April 12th, 2007, from 9:AM to 9:PM here at the Mt. Blanco
Fossil Museum in Crosbyton, Texas 124 West Main, 32 miles east of Lubbock. We're on the town
square on Hwy 82 which runs through Crosbyton in front of the museum.
Dr. Don Patton, who has done as much work on these than anyone else, will be here to answer questions as to why he thinks these are man tracks. He will entertain questions and arguments from anyone. We are personally inviting Glen Kuban, Ron Hastings and Harvey Madison from the ACLU to come and answer questions as to why they think they are not.
For all those on both sides who have commented on, avowed or disavowed or
ever wondered about this most famous of all fossil track ways, now is your time to come see it for yourself.
Everyone may stay as long as they like.

The mold was originally made in 1999. Over time the
latex has hardened.
Joe is adding a fresh coat of latex to soften the
original latex mold.

impressions made by a giant human and a dinosaur.
