Experts have investigated a mystery shoe print discovered in a Slate terrain, which has been dated to 200 million years ago.
Since the Triassic age, the shoe print has shocked both natives and strangers. There was a time when the Earth was more than 200 million years old.
For the year 1968, William J. Meister, a cartoonist and trilobite collector, discovered a particularly specific shoe print at Antelope Springs, Utah, USA.
When Meister uncovered the slate block, he discovered a shoe print and trilobite fossils inside. It’s worth noting that trilobites are a type of marine arthropod that has previously become extinct.
A shoe print that has been around for millions of years.
The Creation Research Society Quarterly published an article by Meister detailing his discovery. Between 505 and 590 million years ago, the slate with the shoe impression was created.
The following was the description:
“The heel mark was imbedded in the slate stone 3 millimeters more than the whole footprint of the shoe; it is thought to be from the right foot because the right side of the heel shows more wear.”
Dr. Clarence Combs of Columbia Union College in Maryland, as well as geologist Maurice Carlisle, were mentioned in the same article as having visited the site of the finding on July 4, 1969.
Carlise dug a little deeper and discovered a layer of muck on the same level as the shoe print. As a result, he was convinced of the consistency of the fossil footprint, because the mud indicated that the foot that left the imprint had been on the surface at some point.
Scientists, as expected, dismissed the discovery, claiming that it was merely a rare occurrence produced by erosion and natural processes.
The scientific world has yet to recognize the imprint as “real.”
A similar case was also turned down.
A comparable discovery is described in “The Mystery of the Petrified Shoe Sole Five Billion Years Old,” an interesting article published in the New York Sunday American newspaper on October 8, 1922.
The article described how geologist and mining engineer John T. Reid while searching for fossils in Nevada, came across an astonishing footprint. It was determined that it was a shoe print after further analysis.
A footprint in which the markings of the sewing thread used and the marks left by the constant rubbing on the heel could be deduced.
The geologist brought his rare specimen to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Trying to pique their interest in his find. However, his reputation was tarnished when he said the following:
“We have never seen a better replica of a manmade thing than the footprint.”
They must have realized, however, that the sediment in which the footprint appeared was from the Triassic period.
Reid was displeased with the scientific community’s opinion, so he ordered further tests and images, which were carried out by a chemist from the Rockefeller Institute. Reiterating the response that the sole source of income was human labor
How could a shoe print have appeared hundreds of millions of years before the invention of the shoe? Even worse, what happened before humans walked the Earth?
