Cryptozoology: Why Use That As An Argument?

Okay, if you’re a full-on young earth creationist, here’s something you might agree with: man and dinosaurs coexisted peacefully.  You look to “evidence” like the Ica Stones, some of which have already been proven to be hoaxes, according to Talkorigins, one of the leading pro-evolution websites.  You can find a link to it on the main page.  But the main argument against man and dinosaur living together is this, put into a simple math problem: Man+Dinosaur=no more man!

But seriously, folks, another argument is the time-honored field of cryptozoology-the study of creatures that may or may not exist.  Some “cryptids”, like the Loch Ness Monster, have been described as looking like dinosaurs or other prehistoric wildlife.  If they live with man now, isn’t it perfectly reasonable for them to have lived with man thousands of years ago?  And when you put it that way, to the untrained eye, yes, it does sound perfectly reasonable.  Until said untrained eye discovers that while some cryptids may indeed exist (like the overwhelming evidence for various ape-men worldwide), others, like Mokele-Mbembe, a reported Congo sauropod, don’t have too much evidence for their case other than footprints and eyewitness reports.  That’s right.  You won’t find real sauropods on film, though the Brachiosaurus from Jurassic Park comes close.

In fact, if Bigfoot exists, it could be a big help to the proponents of evolution!  Think about it this way: Bigfoot, along with other similar creatures, like the Yeren and the Yeti, are described as being sort of like bipedal apes.  Now, we only know of one definite species of creature that is permanently bipedal-us.  But fossil evidence supports a family of humanoid primates that seem to be related to Homo Sapiens!  So if Bigfoot exists, could he possibly be a lost member of one of those links?  It really makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
