Many strange artifacts have been found of man-made objects in coal and other rock layers. These out of place artifacts found encased in coal include a thimble, iron pot, eight carat gold chain, three throwing spears, metallic vessel inlaid with silver. Other strange artifacts that are also out of place that were embedded in rock that is supposedly millions of years old are nails, screws, strange coin, tiny ceramic doll, and other objects of obvious human manufacture.
By evolutionary dating techniques, these objects are dated hundreds of millions of years before man supposedly evolved on earth. But something is very wrong about this. Either these vast ages are correct or maybe that these ages of rock and coal are recent. Evolutionists are very quiet about these astonishing strange artifacts.
A very strange artifact is a footprint of human being wearing sandals with a trilobite crushed within the footprint. Evolutionists tell us that trilobites are one of the most ancient creatures which have ever lived on planet Earth and became extinct 240 million years before humans evolved. William J. Meister Sr, a drafting supervisor by trade, made a hobby of searching for trilobites in the mountains of Utah. On June 1, 1968, he found a human footprint, and there were trilobites in the same rock! The location was Antelope Springs, about 43 miles northwest of Delta, Utah. Breaking off a large two-inch thick piece of rock, he hit it on its edge with a hammer; and it fell open in his hands. To his great astonishment; he found, on one side of the footprint of the human being, a trilobite right in the footprint itself! The other half of the rock slab showed an almost perfect mold of a footprint and fossils. Amazingly the human was wearing sandals. The footprint measured 10 and 1/4 inches long by 3 and 1/2 inches wide at the sole, and 3 inches wide at the heel. One easily visible trilobite was in the footprint. It had stepped on it, pressing it under foot. (William J. Meister Sr., “Discovery of Trilobite Fossils in shod Footprint of Human in Trilobite beds – A Cambrian Formation – Antelope Springs, Utah”, in “Why Not Creation?” (1970), p. 190).
As a result of finding the footprints, Meister became a Christian. There has been other similar fossil discoveries of sandal footprints at the same location, although this is the only fossil where a trilobite was inside an apparent shoe print
Workmen were blasting near Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1851; and, in a bed of solid rock, they found a bell-shaped metal vessel. The vessel had inlaid floral designs in silver and showed a remarkably high degree of craftsmanship. A report on this find was later printed in “Scientific American” (June 1851).
David Brewster found an iron nail in a Cretaceous block from Mesozoic era. A report on the find was made by the British Association in 1845-1851, in which it was stated that a nail was found in a block of stone from Kingoodie Quarry, North Britain. The block containing the nail was eight inches thick and came below the surface. (Sir David Brewster, Report of Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, Vol. 14, “One Hundred Thousand Years of Man’s Unknown History, (1970), p. 181).
Genesis 6 through 8 is the better explanation why we are finding these artifacts and fossils. It is worldwide Flood of Noah’s time that produced this.
