A newly famous dinosaur, Ebenezer, has generously confirmed through his skeletal remains that God is real, and indicates that these archaic creatures existed during the time of Noah. Ebenezer is an Allosaurus that went on display at Kentucky’s Creation Museum, May 24, 2014. Reported by someone who works at Answers in Genesis, this is considered to be a world-class dinosaur skeleton, in that it testifies of a swift burial that confirms the Earth’s submersion in water during the time of Noah’s Flood.
This exhibit boasts a 30-foot-long, 10-foot high Allosaurus skeleton, which contains nearly 50 percent of its bones, almost a full skull with 53 teeth. This dinosaur resembles the Tyrannosaurus rex. The Christian ministry, Answers in Genesis, owns the Creation Museum and will utilize this display as an opportunity to speak of the truth of God’s word; whereas, other museums would choose to coerce both children and adults in promoting their world view of evolution, which currently has no consistent foundation. It was nearly a decade ago that about 50 percent of the skeleton’s bones were recovered in Colorado and those bones declare that this dino died about 4,300 years ago in a worldwide flood. This time frame vindicates the Biblical time-frame for this Allosaurus’ existence.
Some scientists say that it was 60 million years ago that dinosaurs last roamed the earth. A paleontologist, Mark Clementz, from the University of Wyoming says the Allosaurus lived in North America, approximately 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period and that the dino was carnivorous. Needless to point out, discrepencies exist even among the scientists.
Ken Ham is the founder of the Creation Museum and said that this new exhibit will help expose the scientific issues with evolution and will offer proof in defense of the book of Genesis. Ebenezer’s skeletal structure will be the masterful centerpiece for this exhibit, Facing the Allosaurus. Bill Nye, a scientific educator, and Ken Ham recently challenged one another in a live Web streaming debate which attracted millions of viewers, and that debate was intense. The president of the Kentucky Paleontological Society, Daniel Phelps, made a recent statement saying that even without doing research, it is clear that the fossil of this dinosaur confirms evidence of Noah’s flood, also proving that God is real.
The Elizabeth Streb Peroutka Foundation had purchased the bones over a decade ago and had chosen to donate them to the Creation Museum. A member of the foundation, Michael Peroutka, commented that the fossil was a testament to God’s creative power in designing dino’s and that this skeleton was magnificently well-preserved. One million dollars is the current value placed on this specimen.
Ham said that he has observed many dinosaur skeletons over the decades in the secular institutes, which have been put on display for evoution purposes. He is now happy to have one of the same class in his museum that will assist in exposing the error in evolution and defending the truth in the book of Genesis, God’s Word. Andrew Snelling, a Creation Museum geologist with Answers in Genesis, commented that the Ebenezer’s skeleton was unearthed at the Morrison Formation in northwestern Colorado. The Morrison Formation is part of the Carnegie Quarry which was found by paleontologist, Earl Douglass in 1909. This quarry is a rock outcrop known for the abundance of Late Jurrassic fossils, which includes the Dinoaur National Monument, as noted by the National Park Service. It is likely, said Snelling, that Ebenezer died while racing to high ground during the flooding, but was swept away by the rush of debris and sediment and quickly buried.
The future for Ebenezer includes a CT scan to be perfomed by Snelling. Discrepencies will continue to be battled out betwixt and between evolutionists and creationists. Evidence is confirming that more and more scientists are leaning toward the evidence in creation. Reasons to Believe is an organization that was founded by Hugh Ross where their goal is to reveal how faith and science converge, with evidence. As for Ebenezer, he is no scrooge, he sports his dinosaur smile, as only a dino can do, and boasts that God is real through the existence of his masterful carriage.
