Scientists have a history of rejecting any ground shaking information. Many discoveries have been delayed for decades because of this.
It will sort itself out in a few years.

What you see is merely an imprint of a supposed "creature" buried in the Earth by God to give invertebrate paleontologists something to do (argue) and possibly screw with their minds (easy enough).
In my estimation as vertebrate paleontology was my field in an earlier life, this "imprint" is merely a single Bigfoot right foot imprint and totally unrelated to anything related to invertebrate paleontology..

I have a small problem with this. If that fossil is at least 100 million years old. Why hasn't it turned into oil? In fact, no-one has ever found a fossil in the process of turning into oil. Why is that I wonder?

I think I know why scientists get all upset when new information comes out that contradicts what's already believed...
They spend so much money on their stupid doctorate degrees learning what is now "crap science"
"Hell no I'm not happy about that! I slaved away and spent half a million dollars on my degree and find out half of what I was taught is complete garbage!?"
Yeah, I'd be upset too.

Great find! Do you think this throws carbon dating out the window?
