SAUROPODS / APATOSAURUS ( Dinosaur ) depicted on ancient cylinder seal ?
An ancient ( Egyptian ) Mesopotamian cylinder seal , dated at 3300 BC.
(Moortgart, Anton, The Art of Ancient Mesopotamia, 1969, plate 292.)
seems to be displaying Sauropod or Apatosaurus like dinosaurs . Take a
look at the artist picture on the right of a single Apatosaurus , which
is an artist conception from an Apatosaurus skeleton , now compare it to
the ancient seal depiction on the left . The similarities between th......ese
two depictions are very striking . The legs and feet on the Egyptian
art seem to fit the sauropods better .....Sauropod pictures http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Sauropo

The head displays the biggest difference . The artists depiction of the
Cartilage forming the shape of a frill or ears may be stylized or
accurate ( as there is no way to know from the skeletons we have today).
The skill with which the egyptian artist has captured the musculature
of the animal is demonstrated with stunning realism.
It must be
asked , where did the artist or how did the artist conjure up such an
accurate image of what we today call dinosaurs ?
The question must
be asked " how could artists decorating an ancient Egyptian seal know
what a dinosaur ( SAUROPODS / APATOSAURUS ) looked like , when dino
skeletons have only begun to be assembled during the past two hundred
years and we are told they died ...out over 60 million years ago ? (
hypothetical years . And are part of the evolutionary interpretation of
the evidences that we all have ) COULD IT BE THAT DINO'S AND MAN
ACTUALLY LIVED ALONGSIDE ONE ANOTHER , and very recently ?
Did these artists witness these animals for themselves ?
JUST WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF MAN AND DINOSAUR CO-EXISTED ?
Louis Jacobs , former president of the society of Vertebrate Paleontology ......
"Such an association (man and dinosaur) would dispel an Earth with vast
antiquity . The entire history of creation , including the day of rest ,
could be accommodated in the seven biblical days of the ......Genesis
myth . EVOLUTION WOULD BE VANQUISHED ."
Mr Jacobs does not hold
to the biblical worldview , this is obvious by his calling the Genesis
account myth , but he clearly understands that if man and dinosaurs
co-existed then it is the final nail in the coffin for the Evolutionary
From the evidence that is available , which spans every
tribe and nation globally , it is obvious that man and dinosaurs
co-existed . The very book (Bible , Word of God ) he attempts to claim
as myth contains eyewitness accounts of what are clearly known by us
today as DINOSAURS .
A great book for anybody searching out evidence
for the co existence of man and what we call today dinosuars then the
following book by Bill Cooper is a great read . http://www.amazon.co.uk/After-flood-Post
