How old is the human race?

  Author: 29561  Category:(Discussion) Created:(3/23/2001 12:39:00 PM)

Humans are currently thought to have emerged between 1 and 2 million years ago, but recent findings may prove that man is much older then that.

What may be the oldest fossil footprint yet found was discovered in June of 1968 by William J. Meister, an amateur fossil collector. This print is estimated to be around 300 to 600 MILLION years old! A sandaled shoe crushing a trilobite; is this proof that there were previous civilizations on earth, or visitors from another world? Could this foot print be from God? The sandal that crushed a living trilobite was 10 1/2 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide; the heel is indented slightly more than the sole, as a human shoe print would be.

What does this mean? Did humans walk the earth millions of years before Scientist believed that did? Did humans walk with the Dinosaurs?

In cave painting in Mexico, there are animals that look a lot like dinosaurs. In the same area Clay figures have been found that also have a striking resemblance to beast that walked the earth Millions of years before Humans. Does this prove that Humans have been here for 100's of millions of years? Some would say yes it does, and other would claim them as hoaxes.

If they are real then the history of human kind as we know it will need to be re-written.

Let me know what you think?

Date: 3/23/2001 12:47:00 PM  From Authorid: 25828    I did a post on a 2.8 BILLION year old grooved orb found...so we're even older than 500 million and the tribolites...great post...

here is the link to that actual picture..

Date: 3/23/2001 12:53:00 PM  From Authorid: 9295    Ahhhh...I love reading about things like this. Good post.  
Date: 3/23/2001 1:01:00 PM  From Authorid: 30901    heres a thought, how do we know that it wasn't God himself. we were made in his image and he did visit the Garden of Eden. *lunytoon*
Date: 3/23/2001 1:08:00 PM    It was a couple of years since I took Anthropology but I think the oldest hominids were like 4.3 million and the first use of tools 1.7 million years ago. I can't believe 300 million cuz I think that's before any early primates. I'm sure we're gonna have people post saying the world is only 7,000 years old but let them come.
Date: 3/23/2001 1:09:00 PM    oh yeah maybe aliens
Date: 3/23/2001 1:45:00 PM  From Authorid: 28989    Maybe the footprint was that of a time traveler from a thousand years in our future, and he crushed the very tribolite that would have evolved into a species that would have destroyed the human species. We owe him a big thanks. Canoe  
Date: 3/23/2001 1:47:00 PM  From Authorid: 28989    Sorry, I meant trilobite. Canoe  
Date: 3/23/2001 2:20:00 PM    We're gonna destroy ourselves before we discover the ability to time travel.
Date: 3/23/2001 3:05:00 PM  From Authorid: 3508    WOAH! that must have been cool. i think it was when humans didn't develop toes  
Date: 3/23/2001 3:12:00 PM  From Authorid: 5940    I like this post, and wonder the same thing. Some scholars of religion think that the earth has only existed no more than 6 or 7 thousand years. Others think that it's in the millions. I am curious about the scientific viewpoint. Now, I don't know much about science, but I am curious as to how they can determine the age of whatever artifact discovered. And how accurate are they when they determine the age? Just curious.  
Date: 3/23/2001 3:30:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 29561    The process used is called radiomertic dateing. In radiometric dating, scientists measure the amounts of different isotopes of certain elements in a rock sample. Since radioactive isotopes are known to decay at a certain constant rate, the amounts remaining in the rock will tell how old it is. For igneous rocks this is the time when it solidified from molten magma.
Date: 3/23/2001 6:41:00 PM  From Authorid: 24813    I'm pretty sure human history as we know it has to be rewritten regardless. I think it's pretty ignorant to believe we're the only group to ever advance into a complex society (but it says so in my history book! It has to be true! Right? ....ummm, no). I don't know about humans in the cambrian period, buy hey who knows? But I am sure there were other (now forgotten) civilizations around before ours. I believe we were placed here (and now) by other intelligent life (maybe even other humans?). But maybe this other "people" has the ability to place us in any time as well, so the race would continue despite any cataclysmic events that might occur in a given time. We wouldn't know about the others, but they would all be going on simultaneously (assuming non-linear time, and, heck, a whole lot of things for that matter). So to have a legitimate "footprint" from back then could be proof of a lot more than just the fact that humans might have been around then.
