Dinosaurs, Interpretations and Misinformation

The origins issue is not resolved by who has the "better" facts. Evolutionists do not have their facts, and creationists do not have their own separate facts. We all have the same evidence to work from. The disagreements happen with the interpretations of the facts, and these interpretations are based on our worldviews. Evolutionists tend to miss facts that are right in front of them. That's the fact, Jack!

Evolutionists insist on promoting their worldview, and very few will let the facts foul up their presuppositions. Nobody expected to find thousands of dinosaur tracks. Nobody expected that reanalysis of Psittocosaurus dinosaur skulls would prune the number of species. Nobody expected that PhysOrg would be downright misleading regarding dinosaur "feathers" and where they were "found". Nobody expected — never mind.
Nearly inside the Arctic Circle along the Yukon River, thousands of dinosaur tracks have been found – one of several surprising discoveries about dinosaurs.
The facts:  Live Science and Alaska Public published the story; see also NBC News.  The tracks are in the form of “casts” in which cemented mud formed within the hollowed-out footprints.  A great diversity of dinosaur types were found during a 500-mile expedition along the Yukon River. Some of them show claw marks at the tips of the toes.  In addition, the area yielded fossils of “a lot of plant fossils, leaves from broad-leaved trees and different types of conifers.”  In some places, the explorers were able to find 50 specimens in 10 minutes.  None of the local villagers were aware of the tracks.  “This and all of the other material that we found was just a complete surprise, because no one expected anything like this was out there,” Pat Druckenmiller, curator of earth sciences at the Museum of the North, said.
The interpretations:  The discoverers believe the tracks are 25 to 30 million years older than other tracks found in Denali National Park and along the Colville River in Alaska, which are considered 65 to 80 million years old.  The tracks are believed to be from both carnivores and herbivores, some from ankylosaurs.  The discoverers say Alaska was farther north when the tracks were made, but was in a warming period at the time.  Druckenmiller commented that a find of this magnitude is rare in the 21st century.
