I remember reading about a shoe print that was found and dated to be thousands of years old but the problem was it was made by a modern day work boot. I have tried to find something on the net about it but as yet have not. Maybe some one else can back me up on this. The past is full of such things that are hidden for us.

was this the one you're refering to?

i rembered reading about this when i was about 9, and it blew me away then, and your event in question sounded similar to this one. only difference is it's a fossil of a sandal found in a 2 inch thick slab of rock, that's said to be at least 260 million years old, because the wearer of the sandal is crushing trilobites in its stride.

(09 Jun) At Morrisonville, Illinois, a length of chain is found when a large lump of coal is broken open.

At Thomas, Oklahoma, two employees of the Municipal Electric Plant use a sledge to break up a chunk of coal too large for the furnace. An iron pot topples out from the center of the lump, leaving an impression in the coal. The coal had been mined near Wilberton, Oklahoma.

If something is found inside coal, doesnt that mean it's over 200 MILLION years old!?

S&F...nice find.

maybe, maybe not.

This fella has a whole different take on it. He has some interesting map overlay comparisons

..... At left is an azimuthal equidistant map centered on 0, 0. The fit of Africa and Spain is far better and the fit with Brazil is surprisingly good. Features on the South American coast down to southern Brazil can be identified with certainty. Beyond that, though, the map is fantasy. It doesn't match either South America or Antarctica very well.

Star and flag for you!

I am a firm believer that there is much more to life, earth and what we see everyday. I believe there is a lot more "under the surface" so to speak.

We know so little of such a big place. We think we're smart with science and studies, but there's a whole different existence within our reach.

Hence my old signature line, "I keep looking but keep getting disappointed..."

Thanks for sharing!

But the accuracy? how is that to be explained?

In fact, there is a theory about this that there was a civilization of maritime travellers that was worldwide. interesting huh?

I noticed that Bing Maps has a feature called 'bird's eye view'. Maybe everyone should argue about that instead of the fact that a 500 year old map, copied from much older maps, shows Antarctica ice-free.

Exactly !

Intelligent conversation gets quashed by the naysayers yet again (or not).

Human bones, foot and handprints have been found in rock and coal deposits which geologists have dated as millions of years old. Viewed in isolation, these anomalies in the fossil record can be dismissed as artefacts that merely look human. So many have now been discovered, however, that they seriously call into question such an approach.

In Fisher Canyon, Nevada, in 1927, a shoe print was found. It was in a layer of Triassic limestone dated at 225 million years old. The rock was later examined at the Rockefeller Foundation, and confirmed to indeed be a shoe heel. High resolution photographs revealed that the leather had a double row of stitches with the twists of the threads discernable.

Very clear human-like tracks were discovered in 1973. The impressions were in the same layer of rock as tracks of the Anatosaur, a duck-billed dinosaur. If the tracks are accepted as human, they would place man back in the time of the Cretaceous period.

In 1867 at the Rocky Point Mine, in Gilman, Colorado, at a depth of 400 feet, miners found human bones embedded in a silver vein and a well-tempered copper arrowhead. The vein was dated at 135 million years old.

Prospectors digging near Eureka, Nevada in 1877 found a human leg bone and kneecap sticking out of solid rock. Doctors examined the remains and determined they were from a very modern-looking human being. The rock in which the bones were found was dated geologically to the Jurassic Period.

Two human skeletons were found in 1973, southwest of Moab, Utah, in strata over 100 million years in age.

A publication called the American Anthropologist reported in 1896 that the Ohio State Academy of Science had exhibited a large stone containing a human foot print. In 1897, the Los Angeles Herald revealed that a fossil shoe impression had been discovered in solid rock. The imprint was that of a shoe with a high narrow heel and a broad flat sole. Sandal or moccasin prints have also been observed in the gypsum of the White Sands in New Mexico.

The photograph below was taken in northern Washington State and was reportedly found with another partial imprint. It appears to be the shoeprint of a large individual. It has been argued by palaeontologists that the fossil merely looks like a footprint, but the list of similar fossils is extensive.

I just love how geologists and archeologists automaticaly ignore things like OOPARTS because it dosent fit their current rules and standards.

I think this is a very cool thread, and it illustrates perfectly why making strides in scientific discovery is so difficult! People can get caught up on a little terminology, or pick out a minute point and argue over it while missing the big picture!

Scientists risk their whole reputation and future funding to go out on a limb and call a footprint a footprint knowing full well that anybody with some clout and a bad attitude could crush them back down! Therefore, they rarely make those leaps in conclusions, and they err on the side of caution, and they call them anomalies or odd formations, and we never get over that hump and move forward!

Many like-minded scientists surely exist, but since their publications are watered down with political correctness and prose padded to protect their reputation and careers, so the discoveries linger and die instead of getting the attention and criticism they deserve! Maybe many of them are odd anomalies, and maybe they are footprints, but how will we ever know unless someone stands up and makes a claim and everyone else gives it the healthy and appropriate analyzation that it deserves?

I love these stories too!

As a side note... I gave up being Christian 20 years ago; best thing I ever did! Free'd my mind to explore and study without restriction.

I believe I read a post about pre-flood earth and how there was a mist that covered the planet, but it was high up in the day, descended in the evening. No rain, no snow, so maybe no ice covering in antartic. It was speculated they could have drawn the maps from reflections off the mist layer during the day. Like a mirror, they could see an image opposite them. Maybe that's how they could get inland features accurate. Great thread, and thanks to all who stayed on topic. I wish i could remember the link. Then I wish I could link. Star and flag.

I thought the mission statement of ATS is to "Deny Ignorance"? But when you are just listing your opinions and claiming you think science is wrong THAT is ignorance. I'm sick of people making up lame stories about how they believe that civilization is super super old just because your imagination would lead you to want that. Or how you believe that carbon dating is wrong... blah blah blah

If you are NOT an expert on the topic, do some research on what EXPERTS say, otherwise, quit spreading ignorance

One of the reasons why dinos are now considered to be proto-birds rather than reptiles is their make up and structure. With regard to confusing human and dinos etc, is possible to build an anatomically correct mini-skeleton of a bronto using only a vast supply of chicken bones, albeit with some in seriously a different position than where it was in the chicken.

thats interesting info no doubt but where is the evidence??? Anybody can make a list of things. without picture or video its just hearsay.

IN 1914, Germany invades France. During their initial rapid advance, one company of Germans came across a man dressed in bizarre clothes of unknown fibres. The man begged to speak with the officer who wrote, in detail his conversation with the man in a letter that was sent to his wife and is currently held by a museum in Germany. In the converstaion, the man informs the officer of the following:-

- That the war would not be over by Christmas , but would drag on until 1918.
- In 1918, Germany would loose the war and the Kaiser would fall.
- Revolution would spread across Russia, shortly before this.
- The allies will treat Germany cruelly after the war.
- In pst-War Germany, money would become so plenitful that people would carry it around in laundry baskets.
- After this time of limitless money, there would be a time of extreme lack of money ten years later and Germans would be reduced to starvation.
- During this time, a new powerful leader would arise.

The officer asked if it was the Kaiser returning =, but the man said no, some people would think that he would return the Kaiser, but he would not.

- A few years after this new tough leader would come to power, he would make new, even bigger war, but this time would seem to be far mre successful that the Kaiser at the start.
- After 6 years, he would loose the war catastrophically.
- This time, the Allies will simply tear Germany apart into several pieces.

The man passionately offered to help stop this all.

The officer considered all this, but above all considered that the idea of baskets of money to absolutely ludicrous and the most far-fetched thing. .. so, under pressure to advance, he concluded that the man was insane and simply had him shot.

Regrettably, as I suffer from EXTREME AND TOTAL FEAR of them, (I can't even type the words in full) I cannot help with the research on this, so you would need to find this yourself on Google or something.
