Sulphur Springs, Arkansas
Nov. 27, 1948
While I was working
in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Okla in 1912, I came upon
a solid chunk of coal which was too large to use. I broke it with
a sledge hammer. This iron pot fell from the center, leaving the impression,
or mould of the pot in a piece of the coal. Jim Stull (an employee
of the company) witnessed the breaking of the coal, and saw the pot
fall out. I traced the source of the coal, and found that it came
from the Wilburton, Oklahoma Mines.

A trilobite crushed within a human sandal print Found
on June 1, 1968 near Antelope Spring, Utah.
The oldest fossil footprint yet found
was discovered in June 1968 by William J. Meister on an expedition
to Antelope Spring, 43 miles west of Delta, Utah. He was accompanied
by his wife and two daughters, and by Mr. and Mrs. Francis
Shape and their two daughters. The party had already discovered
several fossils of trilobites when Meister split open a two-inch-thick
slab of rock with his hammer and discovered the print. The
rock fell open "like a book." revealing on one side the footprint
of a human with trilobites right in the footprint itself.
The other half of the rock slab showed an almost perfect mold
of the footprint and fossils. Amazingly the human was wearing
a sandal! The sandal that seems to have crushed a living
trilobite was 10 1/4 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide; the
heel is indented slightly more than the sole, as a human shoe
print would be.
"If the print is what it appears to be
- the impression of a sandaled shoe crushing a trilobite -
it would have been made 300 to 600 million years ago and would
be sufficient to overturn all conventionally accepted ideas
of human and geological evolution."

This photo shows a human handprint found in
Cretaceous rock in the same layer with the Glen Rose dinosaur footprints.
The fossil handprint is so specific that it displays impressions
of the thumbnail, impressions of the tissue webbing between the
thumb and index finger, and the impression left by penetration of
the middle finger into the mud.
