Yes I did read it thankyou.
While they argue for their positive result, it is still all conjecture.
So the stone area was only exposed recently, due to erosion of beachside cliffs supposedly.
They are quite happy to talk about estuaries and mid glacial sedimentary deposits of mud, but dont even hint as to why or how they were buried under
"cliffs" in the first place. So how did the rocks get covered by the dirt/sand whatever?.
Their other observation is quite weak too. They say they must be footprints because the underlaying sediments are not eroded, so therefore they are
footprints not erosion.....
Unfortunately, this is also a lack of understanding of erosion. While the sea is currently lapping the surface of the rocks, this was not the case in
days of old. Erosion comes in many forms and all could have influenced "Pock marks" in the surface and not the underlying layers...You have, glacial
movement, wind, rain, tidal, ice, frost, any tiny fissure or crack in the rock could easily be opened over the years by ice expanding etc.
They have also drawn a lovely map of all the footprints....not any two make a pair of upright human stance!.
There is no walking pattern, there is no even standing pattern, their is no two pairs walking together, there is no evidence of any Left and Right
pairs........other than depressions that, with a lot of imagination, may resemble a primate type (or bear) footprint.
Have a look yourself, if you can find a matching pair, walking or standing.....let us know.
When you live on a continent with 13000 miles of coastline, the biggest exposed rock in the World (Uluru), Real Human and dinosaur footprints in real
ancient mud, Unususal rock formations up the ying yang....then it is not hard to question these "Experts", about little rockpools near the sea in Ol
