The worldwide evidence that man and dinosaurs cohabited is prolific and indisputable (see Lyons and Butt, 2008). Yet, the evolutionary community stubbornly continues to deny that such evidence exists. The extreme bias manifested by such denials is self-evident—what logicians label “cavalier dismissal” (Carson, 1984, p. 120). Rather than allowing the evidence to speak for itself, evolutionists are so committed to their theory that they simply dismiss any proof presented that contradicts their views—since they have already pre-decided that the evolutionary framework is true. They seem to be incapable of allowing themselves even for a moment to hypothesize theoretically that their theory might be wrong. They refuse even to contemplate the notion that any human being ever saw a living dinosaur—which they insist were extinct millions of years before humans evolved.

Yet, consider, for example, the evidence provided by the Bell tomb engravings. In far northern England, near the Scottish border, lies the village of Carlisle. A city with a turbulent history, the Romans built a wall through it, the Vikings invaded it, and the Scots and English fought over it for many years. Located in this English village is the medieval-period Carlisle Cathedral which was founded in A.D. 1122 by King Henry I (“Visit Cumbria…,” n.d.).

The Latin words beneath the bishop, consisting of four hexameters in two lines, may be translated:

This marble holds within the bones of Bishop Bell for a while Prior of Durham, afterwards he remitted and cherished the bishopric here. Above all things he sought Christ, despising the world, demanding the rewards of the brothers (Weston, 2000, p. 62).

A narrow strip of brass (9½ feet long) that runs around the outer edge of the tomb cover slab bears Latin words translated:

Here lies the Reverend Father Richard Bell sometime Bishop of Carlisle who departed from this life the twenty-forth [sic] day, in the year of the Lord. Among all the faithful departed through the mercy of God may he rest in perpetual peace. Amen (Weston, p. 62)….
