- Discover why the author calls into question what we've been taught to believe and understand about the history of dinosaurs and man.
Every legend is said to include some grain of truth, and for years co-author Dave Woetzel has sought to separate fact from fiction as he explores mysteries related to dinosaurs, mankind's history, and the biblical time-line. Teaming with artist and designer Richard Dobbs, the two have created a visual archive of expeditions and intriguing clues to explore, all of which highlight the connection to the authority and reliability of Scripture.
Provocative artifacts from around the world are examined in an exquisite, full-color book that hints at man's familiarity with living dinosaurs. Studies point to more than simple answers beneath the waves of Loch Ness, and other sites around the world, many investigated personally by the author. Here is the study of cryptozoology and the discoveries that seem to defy all evolutionary time-lines, vividly illustrated and filled with rare photos.
"Dino Dave" Woetzel was privileged to grow up in a Christian home and, as a child, accepted Christ as his personal Savior. He was fascinated with dinosaurs at an early age and grew to love science. Dave graduated from Bob Jones University in 1987 with a Bachelors of Science Degree. He currently resides with his wife Gloria and two children in Concord, New Hampshire, where he is the president of CCR Data Systems, a technology firm.
Dave has had numerous opportunities to speak on the topic of Science and the Bible around the world. In 1999 Dave started the Genesis Park website which showcases evidence that men and dinosaurs coexisted, much of which is now included in this book.
He has also spearheaded some fascinating expeditions that have earned him the nickname "Dino Dave." These include a trip into the unexplored African rainforest of Cameroon; travel to a remote volcanic island in Papua New Guinea; an expedition up the Amazon through the Madidi River in Bolivia; an investigation into the swamps of Lake Bangweulu, Zambia; research at Scotlands Loch Ness; pursuit of swimming monsters in Lake Champlain and Lake Okanagan in North America; and research on Lake Nahuel Haupi in South America.
Richard D. Dobbs, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia and also grew up with Christian parents. He was a dinosaur fan for as long as he can remember and began drawing pictures of the great reptiles at an early age. Richard discovered he had gifts in art and music and desired to spend his life devoting these gifts to Gods glory. While still a young man Richard experienced Gods love and grace and, at the age of 13, was baptized to publicly confess his devotion to Christ.
After high school, Richard enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and was assigned to Camp Pendleton where he played in the Band. In 1989 he participated in Desert Storm as an M-60 Gunner, providing security detail. In 1991 he showed his personal art portfolio to the Camp Pendleton Art Department and was accepted into their graphics team despite his lack of formal training. After leaving the Marines, Richard earned an Associates Degree in Commercial Art from Johnston Community College in Smithfield, North Carolina.
Richard works as a freelance artist and graphic illustrator. He enjoys fine art projects like portraits, paintings, murals, and book illustrations. Richard lives near Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife Carrie and three daughters.
