ANTEDILUVIAN HUMAN REMAINS?
Greetings everyone! How are you doing today and how was your week? I’m busy trying to finish up my novel “The Golden Strand” and keeping up with everything else. It seems the more time that free up for me the busier I get, lol! How about you? Are all of you just as buried under piles of work as me?
Speaking of being buried, I attended a wonderful creation science seminar two days ago and learned about ancient human remains. Up until now I wasn’t sure if all ancient human fossils where post flood. But it seems there are quite a few antediluvian fossils as well. Here are a few (actually quite a few) I dug up (ha ha!). These discoveries are listed in chronological order of discover date. All were found in what is believed to be millions of years old rock layers by secular science. This is quite puzzling as some of the ages would put the human fossils well before the “age of mammals” let alone our supposed ape like ancestors. Hmmm.
In 1490 in Switzerland in the mountains of Canton of Berne, a group of miners searching for metals uncovered the petrified remains of a well-fashioned wooden ship with unknown carvings at a depth of 100 feet. “By it lay masts, broken and eaten away with secular corrosion. There was an anchor of iron, and what gave the old Swiss miners a horrid turn was the sight in the timbers of the bones and skulls of forty men. Another contemporary account, in Latin, says that the ship had rotted shreds of what looked like sails of some woolen fibre adhering to her masts. Eye-witnesses told the story to old Baptista Fulgosa, Italian writer in forgotten Latin folios of many curious things in nature, read only by curious scholars of today.”1 The rock layers it was found in have been estimated by secular scientists to be 120 million years old.
East of the village of Moule on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe 1805—1812, a number of human skeletonsunearthed from Miocene limestone strata, estimated to be 20 million years old. “Today, that skeleton is being housed in the basement of the British Museum. According to the report of the excavators there are more skeletons remaining in the Miocene limestone strata east of the village of Moule. Important questions remain. Even though this limestone is as hard as marble, it formed around these skeletons rapidly, before they could fall apart. If current processes speedily built up this limestone, then how come erosion originally revealed the skeletons to the islanders?”2
Human skull fragments discovered in La Denise, France in the 1840’s were found in estimated 2 million year old rock.
Near Frieberg, Germany in 1842 a human skull that had turned to brown coal was excavated from a lignite quarry. It the portion of the rock quarry where the skull was found is estimated to be 50 million years old.
In the mid 1800’sm a fossilized human skull was discovered in a coal mine. It was sold in Germany.
In 1855 in Foxhall, England a modern human jaw was discovered. In the same and nearby location in 1924 stone tools and evidence of the use of fire was discovered. The rock this discovery was found in is estimated to be 2.5 million years old.
Embedded in Glen Rose Formation at Chalk Mountain, Texas a human tooth and part of a fossilized human finger was discovered in 1957. In 1992 and ’93 two more teeth were found in the same layer—rock that is estimated to be 125 million years old.
In 1860, Near Castenedolo, Italy the upper portion of a human cranium and portions of two children's skeletons were discovered. Secular scientists deem the rocks from which these human remains came from to be from the Astian stage of the Middle Pliocene (3 to 4 million years old).
In Macoupin County, Illinois in 1862 the bones of a man coated with a glossy black coal layer extracted from a coal bed capped with 2 feet of slate rock. The discovery was unearthed at a depth of 90 feet below the surface estimated by secular science to be between 286 and 320 million years old.
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.
In Shenandoah, Pennsylvania at the Ellengowen Mine human remains were discovered circa 1880. One thousand five hundred feet below the surface the outlines of a human leg of gigantic stature impressed into the coal was discovered. With it clear images of extinct leaves and ferns could be made out. Secular scientists estimate the rock from which they came to be 320 million years old.
In 1880 at Dry Branch, Missouri a human skull, portions of ribs and vertebrae were discovered. Along with it were two barbed flint arrowheads, and impressions of fiber matting encased in granular sandstone. Found in “425 million year old” rock.
“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.”3 (230 million years ago).
In 1883 in Delemont, Switzerland a human skeleton was found in ferruginous clays dated at the Late Eocene—35 million years ago.
|FOSSILIZED HUMAN ORGANS FOUND IN COAL MINES NEAR SHENANDOAH, KY|
“Early in November of 1926, archaeologist J.C.F. Siegfriedt made a discovery in another mine, this one the Number Three shaft of the Mutual Coal Mine of Bear Creek, 55 miles southwest of Billings, Montana. What Siegfriedt found was a human tooth, in which the enamel had been replaced by carbon and the roots by iron, by seepage petrification. In an account published in the Carbon County News and dated November 11, 1926, Siegfriedt reported that he had meticulously preserved the mineral matrix that had been deposited around the tooth, and several dentists identified the mold created as being a human second lower molar. The tooth, however, came from the lower level of the mine - from an Eocene deposit dated at 30 million years old.”4
In a coal mine in Tuscany, Italy in 1958 a human jawbone was found at a depth of 600 feet in a coal mine, encased in a Miocene stratum geologically dated at 20 million years. Dr. Johannes Huerzeler, of the Museum of Natural History in Basel, Switzerland, who discovered the human remains, “declared it to be ‘the world's oldest man’ - but his fellow anthropologists did not dare give it the same distinction. Here were human remains more modern in appearance than all the ‘ape-men' forms ever found - yet they were five times as old as any of them. In fact, the jaw bone is as old, if not older, than many ancestors of the apes. The bone raised more problems than answers - so the find was quickly ‘shelved,' and no further work was ever done to give it due recognition.”4
In twenty-four coal seam sites near Mohaney and Shenandoah, Pennsylvania beginning in 1981 thousands of bone fragments including giant human femurs, jaws and craniums, human organs, and pieces of carbonized tool handles, all encased in coal believed to be 280 million years old.
In 1998 near Bogota, Colombia the fossilized remains of a human hand and foot bones were discovered in rock estimated to be over 65 million years old.
And these are just some of the ancient human remains discovered.
Secular scientists have dated the earliest “ape like human ancestors” to have lived between 6 and 7 million years ago. Then why are we finding so many human remains in rock dated much, much older? In rock laid down by a global flood?
Find out more interesting antediluvian discoveries next week….you will be very, very surprised!
Until then, God bless and take care!
