In 1999 Mr. Lesley traveled to Glenrose, Texas and met with the Emmit McFall family. Mr. McFall and his wife owned land upon which fossilized, intermingling footprints of dinosaurs and humans were found in the 1940s. This is one of the creationist contributions that continues to ripple through time.
Mr. Lesley interviewed Mr. McFall and his wife on video on their front porch. They directed him to what is now known as the McFall Site and the Taylor Trail, a fossilized crisscross pattern of human and dinosaur footprints in the same rock layer – a discovery highly regarded as physical proof that humans and dinosaurs coexisted. There, Mr. Lesley met and interviewed a young Aaron Judkins, then and up-and-coming Biblical archaeologist.
To help better illustrate the historic significance of the Taylor Trail, Mr. Lesley suggested that Mr. Judkins fill the tracks with water to make them stand out visually, stand at the end to clearly show that one track was in fact made by a human, and have a photographer snap the image from atop a ladder at the beginning of the trail. A week later, Mr. Lesley received several copies of the resulting photo, which has since become an iconic image in the Creation and archaeological communities supporting the theory that humans and dinosaurs shared the earth at the same time.Another icon of the coexistence of dinosaurs and man is the Granby Stone. The stone was found by farmer Bud Chalmers in a dried lake bed in the 1920s. Mr. Chalmers kept the artifact for three decades, then sold it for 4300 to a Mr. Knight, purportedly the curator for a “museum out East.” Mr. Chalmers released the artifact in good faith, believing that it would find a rightful home in a reputable museum for the world to see. Unfortunately, research shows that the mysterious Mr. Knight had used a false name and the Granby Stone disappeared.
Though it has never been located, Mr. Lesley has faithfully replicated the Granby Stone using photographs taken before it vanished. His sculpted artistic replicas now are showcased at four Creation museums in the United States and Canada.
In 2012, Mr. Lesley also introduced two largely unknown icons as evidence of the existence of the world’s most famous Nephilim, Goliath. These are carved inscriptions found on clay tablets in Israel that include Goliath’s name.
Other direct evidences for giants have been replicated and are being introduced through the Lovelock Pestle, the largest known pestle in the world – far too large and heavy for any single person of today’s stature to use….
