Scientists Find Footprints from 395 Millions Years Ago . . . Creationists See Another Muddy Mistake

Scientists have dated “hand” and “foot” prints in Poland that may be the oldest ever found of a four-legged creature. The prints were left in the early Middle Devonian period roughly 400 millions years ago. Of course, for creationists, who insist that the Bible shows that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, these are just muddy footprints and the scientists are off by 394,994,000 years in their calculations.


The prints were left by lizard-like creatures up to 2.5 metres long and found in a former quarry in the Holy Cross Mountains in south-eastern Poland.

The discovery shatters some theories on the transition from water to land and pushing back that time schedule by almost 20 million years.

For those Middle Devonian wannabes, here is a site on the period.

    Many female praying (preying) mantises aren’t satisfied after copulating with the males of their species. That’s why the following quatrain is so popular with them:

    What a dud!
    He’s no stud.
    He’s lost his appeal–
    Except as a meal.

  2. That is bad Bryon. And you should know better, but the devil made you do it I am sure.

    Some female praying mantises are sexual cannibals. They eat their mates after mating.

    A Very Short Couplet Written by A Female Praying Mantis

    I ate
    My mate.

  4. No Elaine M., I would appreciate being educated on this. Until death do us part. Anything as near as bad as the Black Widows? Spiders that is so no one will think I am being racist or sexists.

  5. Byron–

    “thanks for the warning, next time I see a woman that looks like a Praying Mantis I will be careful.”

    That’s good advice to give yourself. You obviously know what a female praying mantis does to her mate after mating.

  6. [sigh…]

    Byron,

    The RCC are merely dupes of OAO (and increasingly ineffective dupes, at that). The modifications to birth control are experiments conducted by OAO as a part of their research on the fertility problem. OAO have not yet discovered the origins of the fertility problem, so I wont discuss it here.

  7. Slarti:

    what is causing the “decreasing fecundity”? The RCC has certainly tried to keep it up.

    So you are saying the OAO are in league with the RCC to provide sacrificial “lambs” for OAO.

    This is definitely disturbing. I have it on good authority that all estrogen has been modified to make it ineffective in birth control pills. I will assume OAO are behind this?

  8. Gyges,

    You are a naive fool, my friend. The insect creatures are genetic hybrids of several terrestrial species created by our alien overlords (OAO). They are the labor force (or should I say army) being developed by OAO to expand their galactic empire (the OAO are agents of an empire which already spans hundreds of worlds). Human beings are intended to be cattle for the insectoids and the slowly decreasing fecundity of the human race is a serious problem for the plan. Some people believe that the Dick Cheney is the emperor himself, hiding in plain sight (and undisclosed locations) in order to supervise the creation of his hybrid army… Uh-oh, I’ve said too much – now I have to hijack the mind-control lasers on the Mars base to hack Professor Turley’s mind in order to obtain the blog self-destruct codes he mentioned on another thread… please excuse me for a moment.

    Byron,

    There was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer dealing with a praying mantis woman – it’s important not to forget the lessons that we’ve learned from watching ‘Buffy’. (I’m waiting for the day that a spell makes us all burst into song – yes, I’ve drank the phlebotinum.)

  9. Gyges:

    thanks for the warning, next time I see a woman that looks like a Praying Mantis I will be careful.

  10. Slart, Elaine, Byron, et al,

    The lesson to be learned is that people is people. We all have our intellectual blind spots. I’m not sure what mine is. I just know it’s not my insistence that half the human race has been replaced by a race of insect like creatures bent on creating a race of sterile half breeds to use as labor on their home planet. How do I know? Because it’s mentioned in the Bible. Some will tell you that the Nephilim are the sons of fallen Angels and human women, but come on that’s just nuts.

  11. Slarti:

    with that one paragraph, you have cleared up the last 50 years of American history.

    My hat is off to you.

    oh my, it has been 50 years since Kennedy was elected. Holy shit, time does indeed fly.

  12. Amen, Amen and I say unto thee.

    Where is Bdaman to offer his troll of wits?

    Buddha,I hear will be out a day or two.

  13. AY,

    JFK was alive. They faked his death and hid him in area 51 (near where they faked the moon landings) for many years until he began impersonating his brother Teddy after his death at Chappquiddick. Oswald was a patsy who actually believed that he was the shooter due to reprograming by lasers fired from the Mars base through temporal lenses allowing the beams to pass backward in time. All of the evidence was in the man-sized vault installed in Cheney’s office but has been moved to an undisclosed location until Cheney can figure out a way to blame Obama for everything. (This is Cheney’s version of a grand unified theory.)

  14. Hey wait, are you stating for a fact that we did not land on the moon? I saw pictures of it and it was after JFK assassination but before Reagen’s Original Contract on America and the Star Wars Compact.

    Wait it could have happened the way you say as some state that only one shooter killed Kennedy. Hmm, nah plausible deniability….
