Good afternoon all my friends out there! The flowers are just blooming all over the place here and the aroma is wonderful! I even love the scent of fresh, moist, dirt as I plant my flowers and vegetables. 

Berea Tracks
And speaking of the scent of dirt, paleontologists, 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 artifact oddities that merely look human. But when you start putting it all together, so many have now been discovered that they seriously call into question “why aren’t these being taken seriously by the secular scientific community. Here are just a few fascinating footprints…

“In 1833 the American Journal of Science reported human foot impressions running for about 3 miles along an outcrop of limestone on the west bank of the Mississippi, just south of St. Louis, (USA). An eminent geologist of the time stated they were convincing evidence that man existed at the epoch of the deposition of that limestone.

“In 1885 the American Antiquarian reported a find east of the town of Berea, Kentucky (USA). Imprinted in rock were the fossilized impressions of several creatures, including two well-preserved human foot prints. They were described as ‘good-sized, toes well spread, and very distinctly marked.’

“A publication called the American Anthropologist reported in 1896 that the Ohio State Academy of Science (USA) 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.”1

Fisher Canyon Track
In Fisher Canyon, Neveda, USA, in the early 1900’s, John T. Reid discovered an amazing human shoe print in a coal layer that was dated at over 15 million years ago. Two rows of stitches can clearly be seen. The layer from the heel of a shoe had been pulled up from the balance of the heel by suction at a time when the rock was pliable. The shoe print was in a marvelous state of preservation – the edges of the heel were smooth and rounded off as if cut, and its right side appeared more worn than the left – suggesting it had been worn on the right foot. But what was really amazing was that the rock in which the heel mark was made, was Triassic limestone – 225 million years old – which runs in a belt through the canyon hills he had been exploring. The rock was later examined by an expert geologist at the Rockefeller Foundation, who confirmed the analysis. The presence of minute crystals of sulphide of mercury throughout spaces in the fossil also testified to it being of great antiquity. The real surprise about the age-old heel imprint, however, did not come until microphotographs revealed that the leather had been stitched by a double row of stitches, the twists of the threads is very discernible. One line followed along the heel’s outer edge, and the second line paralleled the first precisely, inwards by one-third of an inch. What baffled investigators was the fact that this double-stitching had been done with thread much smaller, and more refined in workmanship, than that used by shoe-makers in 1927, when the fossil print was discovered.”2

“In the mid twentieth century, in northern Washington State a partial shoe imprint was discovered in stone. It appears to be the shoe print of a large individual. It has been argued by palaeontologists that the fossil merely looks like a footprint.”3 You decide.

In 1968, William J. Meister discovered a human foot print near Antelope Springs, Utah while looking for trilobites. Most interestingly, the footprint is right on top of a trilobite fossil, and can only be explained by the owner of the print stepping on the trilobite. Secular scientists dated the rock

the print and trilobite was found in at 500 million years. The fossil was studied by 3 different laboratories and found to be valid. What’s even more

Trilobite in track
fascinating is that secular scientists estimate trilobites came into existence about 300 million years ago and went extinct about 240 million years ago. In addition the footprint was made by a person wearing shoes measuring 10.5” by 3inches.4 

Laetoli Tracks
In 1976 Mary Leakey discovered human footprints in rock dating 3.7 million years old dated from the approximate age of the beds that make up the ground layers. The discovery took place at a site near Laetoli, Tanzania, Africa thus they named the tracks, Laetoli. The secular scientist community states these are from our half ape ancestors. I believe they have it half right…the prints are from our ancestors but are obviously human.5

In the mid twentieth century the Burdick track was discovered and verified as authentic by slicing the track and studying the compression below. (For further details please see earlier blogs on this subject).

Burdick Track
In the 1960’s the Taylor trail was discovered in Glen Rose, Texas, USA. The bedrock is dated in the millions of years yet dinosaur and human tracks are found together (for further details please see earlier blogs on this subject).

This fossil hand print was also found in a rock near Glen Rose, Texas, USA., around the same time.6

The Zapata footprint was originally found in a wilderness area in New Mexico (USA) by a hunter who then brought out a friend with a strong archeology background. 923wqDr. Don Shockey proceeded to document the discovery until he and his team were run off by a nearby landowner with a shotgun. Dr. Shockey had obtained all the legal documents for allowing the expedition on public land by the government. The rock the print was located is allegedly 250 million years old limestone from the Premium period. The

date of discover is uncertain but some time in the twentieth century.7

The Delk Print is a fantastic human footprint in which a tridactyl dinosaur print stepped on top of. The dinosaur track was first discovered in 2000 but the human track did not get uncovered until 2007.  The track was found along the Paluxy River in Glen Rose, Texas, USA. “The Delk Track has been authenticated by spiral CT scan, which can verify that there is greater compression density below the tracks then elsewhere in the rock.”8 For further documentation of this amazing track check out: http://ianjuby.org/examining-the-delk-track/

These are just a few of many human tracks that have been discovered. It’s unfortunate and sad that the secular science community only excepts a few such as the Laetoli track that Mary Leaky discovered. The Laetoli track isn’t very clear (hence they can say it belonged to an half ape human), yet with such tracks as the Zapata, taylor trail, Meister track at Antelope Springs, the Delk track, the Burdick track, The Fisher Hill print and others which are very clear human tracks the secular science community is strangely silent or tries to pass them of as a hoax even with scientific evidence reveling else wise.

Until next time, God bless and take care!

  1. Most of these alleged human footprints in ancient rocks have been well refuted by me and others. To promote them here without even citing any of the refutations, including ones by fellow Christians (which you obscure by implying only secular scientists question them), is not an example of good science. It also does more to push away than win converts among scientifically literate people, especially for those who have researched these many alleged anomalies, as I have. None are even supported by any of the major creationist groups. For more information see: http://paleo.cc/paluxy.htm
