The Cave Man Myth: Exposing the Modern Beginnings of FAKE NEWS

• What is the real history of humanists inventing man’s beginning without his Biblical Creator?
• What Biblical clues predict discoveries actually made about earliest mankind?
• Was Neanderthal Man really smarter than modern people?
• Why do evolutionists deliberately hide the truth about the real history of the world?
• Let’s see real evidence that original man was created by God and the Bible is true.

March Meeting

Speaker, Stan Lutz, curator of the Northwest Science Museum
He has been to Peru with Dennis Swift and Dr. Carl Baugh on a research trip. He spent time at Sacred Valley, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Nazca, and Ica. He went into the back rooms of museums and saw the ancient surgical instruments and other things that show very advance technology.

TOPIC: Peru, the land that defies evolutionary theories.

Peru, a land that defies evolution. The ancient buildings there we can no longer build today; we don’t have the technology to build them. The cloth used to wrap the mummies is incredibly finely woven. The pottery and vases have pictures on them that defy what we are being taught today. The rock carvings are incredible. The Nazca Lines and Palpa Lines, How did these ancients know what dinosaurs looked like? What about the ancient aqueducts? How did they build these huge monuments? What sort of technology did they have?

Stay tuned!


A reminder of our past, present, and future anchored in God's truth.

God formed the world from water and judged it with water. There is a reason that flood stories can be found in every culture. Mankind remembers that terrible judgement.

A final judgement is to come, after which God will make all things anew. A perfect world like the first one, but even better.

Let us not be scoffers but believers, looking forward to a future where righteousness dwells.

The Bonebed Mystery at Hanson Ranch 06/23/2023

The fossil record points to catastrophic events. Have you heard of the Wyoming bonebed contained in the Lance Formation?

The Bonebed Mystery at Hanson Ranch The Hanson Ranch Bonebed provides us with incredible insight into what the world was like during the global Flood of Noah’s day and was a historic, cataclysmic event that served as judgement upon a world wrought with mankind’s wickedness and the violence of both man and beast that then existed a...


These are Edmontosaurus bones, in the Hell Creek formation near Glendive Montana. They are not “rock”, they are not per-mineralized and can be decalcified using modern hospital techniques for processing bone and soft tissue recovery and examination. We were able to get a small jaw piece for our ongoing research and publication efforts.

Photos from Foundations in Genesis's post 05/30/2023

Our fossil gal and board member, Melody Dunne, headed to Glendive, Montana to join a dig with the Dinosaur Soft Tissue Research Institute! Dr. Mark Armitage is making incredible discoveries with his microscopy research on dinosaur bones.

They worked on continued excavation of a nearly complete edmontosaurus that was discovered last year. The land owner, Shana Baisch, provided a section of the lower jaw to be used for soft tissue research.

Melody also collected dinosaur float bone, and Shana Baisch provided plenty of new fossils for the fossil display table! There are ammonites and clams from nodules, alligator and turtle portions, and a triceratops or Edmontosaurus vertebrae!

Finally, Melody also has cast replicas of a triceratops brow bone, edmontosaurus bone with T-Rex 🦖 tooth indentations as well as the dome of a pachycephalosaurus to allow kids to touch when our meetings resume!
