This quick-forming 'stone' hat adds weight to the claims that creation scientists are correct when they say that thousands or millions of years are not needed to form rocks and fossilize animals and plants.

Its caused by concreation minerals dissolve in water and resolidfies in another area. There is a cave i think it was in france where people hang objects and watch them turn to stone. They had bycicles dolls etc. all where encapsulated in stone. This process is not new and has been known for centuries

I'm curious about your education now. Was that religious or academic? I've never heard of that. Except maybe in the Atlantis legends. I don't think that's the same thing though is it?

It's not an oopart.
The term is used with ancient aliens theorists a lot.
When it is used by scientists it refers to objects that challenge common knowledge of technology of ancient civilizations. Or contact between civilizations that was not thought possible.
Those stories of modern objects in impossible places are just that ... Stories.
This however is something completely different again as this is manufactured but manufactured in a collaboration between humans and nature. Pretty cool on its own.

Yeah they do
It's crazy to say they don't
There is so much evidence theynstill do it's embarrassing to have to show you the information

"Determining the numerical age of rocks and fossils
Unlike relative dating methods, absolute dating methods provide chronological estimates of the age of certain geological materials associated with fossils, and even direct age measurements of the fossil material itself. To establish the age of a rock or a fossil, researchers use some type of clock to determine the date it was formed. Geologists commonly use radiometric dating methods, based on the natural radioactive decay of certain elements such as potassium and carbon, as reliable clocks to date ancient events. Geologists also use other methods - such as electron spin resonance and thermoluminescence, which assess the effects of radioactivity on the accumulation of electrons in imperfections, or "traps," in the crystal structure of a mineral - to determine the age of the rocks or fossils.
All elements contain protons and neutrons, located in the atomic nucleus, and electrons that orbit around the nucleus (Figure 5a). In each element, the number of protons is constant while the number of neutrons and electrons can vary. Atoms of the same element but with different number of neutrons are called isotopes of that element. Each isotope is identified by its atomic mass, which is the number of protons plus neutrons. For example, the element carbon has six protons, but can have six, seven, or eight neutrons. Thus, carbon has three isotopes: carbon 12 (12C), carbon 13 (13C), and carbon 14 (14C) (Figure 5a)."
You can accurately date a rock and then use relative dating to date the fossil. Easy.

Well technically the constituents of the metal in the hammer are as old as earth.
