Re: Creationists find Allosaurus?

<<It's about the dig on a fairly complete Allosaurus skeleton that someone
said "likely died during [a] cataclysmic flood".  The term "scientist" was used 
rather loosely in the article. I also enjoyed some of the quotes: "To have a 
dinosaur of this size and significance within the camp of scientists committed 
to the creation model is nothing short of a coup d'etat." >>

Sadly, this means that he fossils will likely not be properly preserved or 
excavated.  tehre was a similar debacle when "Dr." Carl Baugh found a hadrosur 
fossil in texas in the 80's.  The prejudices and the lack of expertise in the 
area of fossil preservation and evaluation caused an important find to be 
essentially wasted.
