A VERY INTERESTING ARTICLE was recently published by the folks at the Institute for Creation Research.  It shows a picture of a dinosaur that was carved around 1,000 years ago.

It is a short article, but it packs a punch.  Here are a few excerpts:

“The temple at Ta Prohm  (modern day Cambodia) —with its tree root-draped stones providing a picturesque scene for visitors—lies fewer than three miles from the oft-visited major Angkor Wat complex. The Khmer people built it and the many surrounding temples during Europe’s Middle Ages.”

If you would like to take a virtual tour of the temple, GO HERE.

One should really read THE ARTICLE for oneself, but it includes this interesting observation:

“The nearest stegosaur fossils come from faraway China. It is therefore very unlikely that the ancients carved a stegosaur likeness based on fossils.”

If the date is anywhere close to 1186, and if the artist saw a living stegosaur, dinosaurs didn’t die out 60-70 million years ago.  This would discredit Darwinian evolution.  I’ve known about this carving for some time, but I didn’t know that it had been dated.  It makes the image even more remarkable.
