“All the footprints are indeed going in the same direction, as if all the dinosaurs are fleeing, but what were they fleeing from? We suggest it was not from predators, but from a flood of water. What flood? Noah’s Flood, described in the Bible in Genesis Chapters 6–9.
Another reason is that footprints normally don’t last long. Try this yourself: leave footprints outside anywhere you like, and see how long they last. Noah’s worldwide flood provided the sediment needed for rapid cementation of the footprints in the Colorado mud before they were worn away, and so preserved them—not for the 200 million years needed by Cox’s explanation, but for about 4,500 years, as indicated by the Genesis record in God’s Word, the Bible.
The Flood explains another curious phenomenon. For many different animal groups, not just dinosaurs, fossil footprints are found in rocks ‘dated’ millions of years earlier than fossils of animals that could have made them. It is strange that animals could have lived millions of years after they made tracks. A better explanation is that there is hardly any time between the tracks and animals—not millions of years. But the Flood would explain this: first, it would bury the tracks made by fleeing animals, then it would overwhelm the animals themselves on higher ground.”
