Did humans and dinosaurs live together in Texas just before Noah's Flood?
Creationists say they did, supporting this claim by citing alleged human
foot prints that have been found side-by-side with those of dinosaurs in
the Cretaceous limestone of the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas. But what
would a scientific team of noncreationists conclude? Creation/Evolution
wanted to find out, and so it supported the efforts of Dr. Laurie R. Godfrey to
gather together such a team, conduct first-hand investigations, and report
the findings. The result is this special issue of Creation/Evolution edited by
John R. Cole and Laurie R. Godfrey and authored by the following
