|Bernifal (Grottes de Bernifal) is a cave in France that was previously owned by Gilbert Pemendrant. First discovered in 1902, the cave contained about 24 paintings of mammoths depicted on the cave walls. It was officially opened to the public in 1935, but was reported to be closed off in 1982, restricting public access. Today, the public has access to the cave, and though evolutionists are more than willing to admit the mammoth images scattered throughout the cave, they are very reluctant to discuss the dinosaur carvings with them.|
Dr. Jack Cuozzo, a dentist from New Jersey, took a trip out to France with his family in search of this cave, though it had been mysteriously closed off from public access. In 1982, Dr. Cuozzo and his family were able to gain entrance to the cave, and shot as many pictures as they could before a local farmer ran them off.

As you can see, this image on the rock shows a mammoth and dinosaur butting heads. Could this be one of the reasons the cave was boarded up and closed off from the public during the 70's and 80's, a time where the Biblical creation movement was beginning to pick up steam?
The type of dinosaur this cave drawing dipicts is unknown, though it seems to resemble a theropoda, which is a suborder of bipedal (walks on two legs) saurischian dinosaur. It is not completely certain since saurischian dinosaurs require a picture of the hips to determine, but the other characteristics, like the short neck and small hands, are comparable features with bipedal reptiles. This is only one of many drawings and carvings of dinosaurs archeologically discovered throughout the world.

Is this a dinosaur for sure? I don't know. But the evolutionist is forced to say no because they must conform to the assumption that dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago. If this is an image of a dinosaur, they know their theory is debunked, so instead of investigation, they ignore it, or at least block it off from public view, which is what was done when the cave was closed down a few decades ago.
What leads me to believe that evolutionists will ignore the findings and adhere to their theory are the examples of evolutionist refusal to investigate claims which contradict the preconceived theory. Dr. Cuozzo sent copies of these photographs to Science News in October of 1982 to which they responded:
"As I told you on the phone the other day, we appreciated the opportunity to look at your photo. Unfortunately, it's
not something we can use in the magazine-- while I have no doubt that the images are there, both the editor and I don't think it would be clear when reproduced in the magazine. In addition, we need comments from an expert or two in the field who had seen it, which doesn't seem possible in this case."
-Assistant to the Editor, Science News response letter to photographs of dinosaur image, recorded by Dr. Jack Cuozzo, Buried Alive: The Startling Untold Story About Neanderthal Man, Master Books, August, 2003, p. 135-136, ISBN: 0-89051-238-8
If a dinosaur drawing were discovered among ancient cave drawings with mammoths, that would be a discovery that would shake the foundations of the scientific community, so the obvious question remains: Why would Science News, who pride themselves on reporting scientific and archeological discoveries, not want to send someone out to investigate the image?
According to some french websites, the cave is open to the public today, but whether this drawing has been removed or not remains open to investigation. The fact is that anything that depicts dinosaur and man living together at the same time is shut down quickly by evolutionary religious zealots because it demonstrates God is correct about the history of this world in His Word.
