Human footprints estimated to be about 300-600 million years old

The oldest fossil footprint was found by William J. Meister, a fossil collector, in June 1968; estimated to be about 300-600 million years old, which would be nothing strange if it weren't a human sole print...

William J. Meister made this rare find at Antilope Spring, 43 miles west of Deltha, Utah, during an expedition to search for fossils and rocks. The footprint consists of a weld that crushes a trilobite, an aquatic animal that has been according to modern science extinct for millions of years, when neither prehistoric or civilized man, nor mammals or even dinosaurs, had made their appearance on earth.

William J. Meister was accompanied by his wife and two daughters, with whom he had already discovered many small trilobite fossils, when, coming across a slab of rock, more than two inches thick, he discovered the exceptional footprint by breaking the stone with his hammer.

Regarding this Meister said:

“The rock opened like a book, on one side there was the footprint of a man.”

Trilobites were small invertebrate marine animals. We can define them as the ancestors of our shrimps and crabs, which lived for about 320 million years before becoming extinct 280 million years ago.

Man, on the other hand, is thought to have appeared between 1 and 2 million years ago and only started producing and wearing shoes or welding them a few thousand years later. This is in my opinion a very simple hypothesis!

The sandal in question was 10.5 inches long: The heel appears, albeit slightly, more imprinted than the sole, as a human shoe imprint is usual to be.

Meister loaned the find to University's metallurgy professor Melvin Cook of Utah, who said he would show it to his fellow geologists. But the impossibility of finding geologists willing to examine the cumbersome and completely inconvenient footprint for the theories of canonical science limited Meister in disclosing the discovery, who had to publish the article about it in the local newspaper "The Desert News". Despite this constraint, the news quickly spread.

Only a month after Meister's discovery, precisely on July 20, 1968, Professor Clifford Burdick, a geologist from Tucson (Ariz.), decided to examine the site. During this period of research, he found another footprint imprinted on a rock bed, this time of a child.

Burdick said:

“The footprint was about 6 inches in length, with the toes extended, as if the boy had never worn shoes, which, on the contrary, generally compress the toes. These, however, do not appear to be very narrow, and the large toe is not prominent.”

He then explained:

“On a cross section the structure of the rock protrudes on thin, flat layers. Where the fingers pressed into the soft material, the layers are pressed down horizontally, indicating the weight that pressed into the mud..."

In August of the same year, a Salt Lake City teacher, Mr. Dean Bitter, stated that he had discovered two other sandal or shoe prints at the same location. According to Professor Cook, in this footprint, no trilobite was found, but a small fossil of this species was found near the same rock, thus indicating that the man who was wandering in those places with sandals at the feet and the small and ancient creature were contemporaries.

Even if science decides to do not accept these discoveries as true (even though they are), scholars should at least take the study into consideration. Perhaps we will discover that man has little to do with the ape, or that on earth there was a civilization that later disappeared as in the cyclical eras described by the Maya and the antediluvian and Atlantean myths ...

Well for now we will be satisfied with seeing the illustrations of the history pages with the monkey that little by little rises from all fours and transforms into a man holding a spear in his hand... It takes a lot to rewrite the history books, but it takes very little to make official science contradict itself.

One last thing: let's always remember that the Darwinian theory is still a hypothesis, accredited yes, but not yet proven.
