Footprint with trilobites


A fossilized footprint was discovered squishing a trilobite and is estimated to be around 300 to 600 MILLION years old! The oldest fossil footprint yet found was discovered in June 1968 by William J. Meister on an expedition to Antelope Spring, 43 miles west of Delta, Utah. The print was found in a two-inch-thick slab of rock. On one side was the footprint of a human with trilobites right in the footprint itself. In the other half of the rock slab was an almost perfect mold of the footprint and fossils. Human foot was wearing a sandal! The sandal that seems to have crushed a living trilobite was 10 1/4 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide; the heel is indented slightly more than the sole, as a human shoe print would be. Trilobites were small marine invertebrates, the relatives of crabs and shrimps, that flourished for some 320 million years before becoming extinct 280 million years ago. According to Darwin’s theory of evolution, how could there be human beings 280 million years ago?
