Biological artefact in contradiction too mainstream science evolution theory


In November 1938, Professor Doctor Burroughs, a geologist at Berea College in Berea, Kentucky, published an article in the college magazine. In it he claimed that together with some colleagues he had found traces of beings on a fossilized sandy beach in Rockcastle County, Kentucky, USA, which must have been human-like. Burroughs: “The footprints are impressed into the horizontal surface of a hard, massive gray sandstone. There are three pairs of tracks showing impressions from the left and right feet…each footprint has five toes and a pronounced arch.”

The site of the find, along with the footprints, was authenticated by several experts. Geologist Prof. C. Gilmore confirmed that the prints were in a rock layer that definitely belonged to the . This was flatly impossible. The age of the was some 320 million years in the past, and at that time there could have been no human-like creatures that also walked on two legs. An ethnologist noted, probably the footprints were carved into the ground by an indigenous tribe. So the prints were examined microscopically. The images showed grains of sand between the toes and on the heels that were more closely packed together than the grains next to the feet. This proved the pressure of the body on the heels and the toes. Moreover, the images under the microscope showed no traces of any artificial processing. Nevertheless, all the expert anthropologists declared that the prints must be fakes because bipeds did not exist in the Carboniferous era. The June 1939 magazine wrote: “We admit that we do not know exactly how the tracks were made, but we do know that one creature could not have been, and that is man in the Carboniferous.” And in the journal a Dr. Albert Ingalls scoffed: “Asking a scientist about man in the Carboniferous is like asking the historian about diesel engines in ancient Sumer. Science knows that these prints are not from a man in the Carboniferous unless 2 and 2 are 7 or the Sumerians would have had airplanes and radios.”
