The astonishingly intact body of a young foal that died between 30,000 and 40,000 years ago was recently unearthed from melting permafrost in Siberia. Its mummified remains were so well-preserved by icy conditions that the skin, the hooves, the tail, and even the tiny hairs in the animal's nostrils and around its hooves are still visible.

The foal was likely about two months old when it died and may have drowned after falling into "some kind of natural trap,"

Paleontologists found the mummified body of the young horse inside the 328-foot-deep (100 meters) Batagaika crater during an expedition to Yakutia in eastern Siberia. Remarkably, the body is whole and undamaged and measures about 39 inches (98 centimeters) tall at the shoulder


Literally frozen in time, how cool is that? Looks no older than a few weeks to me. Just imagine all of the history that is frozen deep within the earth waiting to be discovered? But also, and maybe more importantly, the unfortunate ones that may be lost forever..

As permafrost melts faster, more and more will be found. But a lot will be lost, as well.
Including human history.

Wait until Noah's ark is seen by all, due to the "global melting". That'll be real "news". Their, "it's".... 30,000 to 40,000 year old guesses, won't mean much then.
"Science" will have a hard day ahead, trying to explain away a 4000 year old history book they've tried so hard to refute.

That dead horse ain't over a thousand years old.

First, this isn’t a global warming thread.

Second, Phage will spank you in a global warming thread.

It sort of is a global warming thread. That's why the horsey showed up.

Because the planet is warming.

So you're saying the earth is how old, approximately?

Has anyone claimed otherwise?

What do you think about the horsey, and other things?

I didn't have global warming or the bible in mind when I made this thread, but interesting nonetheless..

Your external quote includes the words "melting permafrost."

So that means global warming?

Do you know where the "perma" comes from?

Really?

Permafrost is permanently frozen soil, and occurs mostly in high latitudes.


Perma, permanent. Get it?

Lol, I know what the word means and why it's called permafrost. I just thought you were trying to explain to me the global warming part.

It was almost a rhetorical question. I'm no scientist, but I think blaming (or crediting) global warming for this discovery may be a stretch.
