Humanlike Footprints

Humanlike footprints, supposedly 150–600 million years old, have been found in rock formations in Utah (a), Kentucky (b), Missouri (c), and possibly Pennsylvania (d). At Laetoli, in the east African country of Tanzania, a team headed by Mary Leakey found a sequence of humanlike footprints (e). They were dated at 3.7 million years. If human feet made any of these prints, then evolutionary chronology is drastically wrong.

Figure 30: Humanlike Footprints with Trilobite. In 1968, 43 miles northwest of Delta, Utah, William J. Meister found this and other apparent human shoe prints inside a 2-inch-thick slab of rock. Also in that slab were obvious trilobite fossils, one of which was squashed under the “heel.” The 10-inch-long shoe print is at the left, and its rock mold is to its right. According to evolutionists, trilobites became extinct 240 million years before humans evolved. Notice how the back of the heel is worn, just as most of our shoes wear today. The heel was indented in the rock about an eighth of an inch deeper than the sole. Others have since made similar discoveries at this location, although this is the only fossil where a trilobite was inside an apparent shoe print.

e. “‘Make no mistake about it,’ says Tim [White, who is probably recognized as the leading authority on the Laetoli footprints]. ‘They are like modern human footprints. If one were left in the sand of a California beach today, and a four-year-old were asked what it was, he would instantly say that someone had walked there. He wouldn’t be able to tell it from a hundred other prints on the beach, nor would you. The external morphology is the same. There is a well-shaped modern heel with a strong arch and a good ball of the foot in front of it. The big toe is straight in line. It doesn’t stick out to the side like an ape toe, or like the big toe in so many drawings you see of Australopithecines in books.’” Johanson and Edey, p. 250.

The big toe of Australopithecus africanus splayed out to the side, as in apes. Obviously, the Laetoli footprints were not made by Australopithecines, as most evolutionists claim.

“In sum, the 3.5-million-year-old footprint trails at Laetoli Site G resemble those of habitually unshod modern humans. None of their features suggest that the Laetoli hominids were less capable bipeds than we are. If the G footprints were not known to be so old, we would readily conclude that they were made by a member of our genus, Homo. ... we should shelve the loose assumption that the Laetoli footprints were made by Lucy’s kind, Australopithecus afarensis.” Russell H. Tuttle, “The Pitted Pattern of Laetoli Feet,” Natural History, Vol. 99, March 1990, p. 64.

1938?  Obviously, not human footprints but alien footprints from a human like species from another planet.  Kindly upload the paper here so we can see the footprints. 

Are you kidding, or do you really believe they are alien footprints from a human like species from another planet?

I included the picture in the post.

Are you kidding? Human footprints on  land before even fish evolved in the ocean?  

Your error is the evidence free assumption that strata was laid down slowly over billions of years.

About 4500 years ago all strata was laid down during the Flood. The lowest strata (Cambrian) contained the slowest animals. The highest strata contained the faster and smarter animals.

Spam.

Every damn conspiracy site, and the foolishly religious - redundant? - are posting this shit everywhere. By doing so, you can't easily google data because the bitches are confusing the search. Google how old is the human species, and you'll get some real data. Data changes, but there is no evidence that supports this post. 

The "Flintstone Theory of Evolution." The cartoon was better.

This is proselytizing as well, just the usual sneaky insertion of stupidity to disguise the goal. Trying to refute reality is the last refuge of theists. If you know what is real, you're useless to them. 

Looks like this early human is wearing loafers with wing tips

We are committed to God’s inerrant and infallible Word and its final authority for all we believe and practice… period. Every word from a politician or preacher, author or educator, king or a president is secondary. We filter everything through God’s Word.

Therefore, as the sheep of God, it is incumbent upon us to teach people the Word of God. One of the premiere principles we must teach them is how to walk with God personally,   even to walk with God hundreds of millions of years in the past!   If loafers are needed to protect our feet then God will give us loafers!  God is Good!  Wing Tips are an added bonus from the Angels of God.  

Looks more like made up shoe prints to me, not footprints.

Liberty University

Students who listen to a teacher who professes the "One book" as the only truth and  "singular" word of 'god' are sheep subject to blind faith.

As a librarian I say "Dear Lowered, we realize that there is only 'one' book, but, we have so many shelves to fill. Dear God, please help us fill the shelves so we can lean about the world around us."

Bigfoot on the Mountain.

About the time when Lewis and Clark explored the west some indigiounous kids saw monsters. One, with red hair, one with blue eyes and antother who was balding with a beard.

The children told their group about the monsters. One had hair on fire (the red head), another with eyes like a fish (blue eyes), and another who's hair was upside down (the balding person with a beard).

The Jesus myth should be easy to understand when looking at the Area 51 myth of the weather baloon that within one generation turned into grey people from outerspace.

This might be the footprint of Thor!

Hallelujah,

The Thunder God!

In mythology what would be the god of earthquakes?

Satan?
