Are Human And Mammal Tracks
Found Together With The Tracks Of Dinosaurs In The Kayenta Of Arizona?
Part II: A Field Study
Of Quasihuman, Quasimammalian, And Dinosaur Ichnofossils Near Tuba
Paul O. Rosnau, B.A, Jeremy
Auldaney, George F. Howe, Ph.D, William Waisgerber, M.S.
Possible tracks of humans,
mammals, and dinosaurs were located, mapped, and studied in rocks of
the Kayenta Formation at seven localities within two study sites near
Tuba City, AZ. Several fossil bones, teeth, shells were located and
tentatively identified as representing phytosaurs, lizards, and the
mollusc genus Unio. The dinosaur prints are ascribed to Dilophosaurus
and other genera. The quasihuman tracks are discussed in relation to
various criteria. Each author has written his own estimation of the
possible authenticity of the supposed human tracks.
Critical Thoughts And Conjectures
Concerning The Doppler Effect And The Concept Of An Expanding Universe
- Part II
Vincent A. Ettari
The main yardstick by which
galactic distances are measured is based on the determination of the
"absolute magnitude" of various star types, galaxies, and
quasars. The "apparent magnitude," or actual brightness of
the object is compared with its assumed "absolute magnitude"
and a distance is derived. Moreover, evolutionary astronomers rely on
a parameter known as the Hubble constant which is considered to relate
the redshift of an object to its distance. This constant assumes that
redshifts are mainly Doppler effects, and that its reciprocal, in conjunction
with other constants (e.g., the cosmological constant L
and the deceleration parameter qo), gives the age of the
universe. With the abandonment of the idea that redshifts are purely
Doppler effects, the Hubble constant is discredited and attempts at
deriving the age of the universe based on redshifts are shown to be
of no consequence in the real world.
