The prints were made in moist clay near the Willandra Lakes 19,000 to 23,000 years ago, the newspaper reported ahead of archeologists' report on the find to be published in the Journal of Human Evolution.


they trying to tell me that in 19-23 thousand years it didn't rain enough to wash the foot prints away? I'm with AROKIE on this. Bull shit. If it hasn't rained there in 19-23 thousand years then that would be the dryest place on this planet. It would be a dust bowl

I think it's the equivalent of walking in wet concrete and then letting it set.

I know there are dinosaur footprints around and they are a "bit" older than these.

Odd; I've never seen anything preserved this well that was not covered immediatly by a volcanic ashfall...no volcanoes in Australia.

1) I wonder if they had to file an environmental impact statement before making the footprints.

2) Take out what you bring in, leave only footprints.

I thought the earth was only 6000 years old?

There are other ways for things to fossilize.

Used to be though. Where i grew up the exposed rock hills are the centres of extinct volcanoes.

Don't know how long ago it was supposed to be. Australia is one of the most geographically stable regions on the planet but we still get an earthquake occasionally.

I call bs because of all the bible studies, the world is only 5000 years old. Theres no way the footprints can be 23,000 years old.

I saw a fossilized human footprint on a rock in Northern Ontario a few years ago. A buddy and me were fishing on a lake that is actually an opening in the Albany river. We pulled off to some rocks to get out and take a break. There on one of the rocks was a distinct, undeniable impression of a human footprint. Just one and no telling how old it was.

hi all,
These are scientists making an educated guess. In this case they are probably looking at the age of the rock layer in which the prints are made. The big thing about this discovery,isnt the age of the prints, since its well supported that man was around in big numbers 22k ago; its the fact that its well before science placed man in this hemisphere. They may have to revise the time its believed that folks walked across the russia-alaska ice bridge.

Bible study isnt science, its faith.
science and faith just arent compatible. -cant use one to support o refute the other.

-and Im cool with both science and the Lord.

So what's so unusual about that? There are lots of similar instances of old footprints being found. In Texas there is quite a collection of dinosaur prints that are considerably older than that. They find tracks of prehistoric animals all the time in layers of shale.

And it is totally beievable that this would happen if you see the soil around my area. You can put a footprint in it easily when it is wet, but when it dries out it gets so hard that you can swing a pick at it and it just goes "dink". So some guy walks across wet dirt right on the beginning of a major climate change (or any number of other explanations). What is so hard to understand?

This earth is just a chalkboard. It has been erased and re-drawn many, many times.

Some Biblical Scholars believe that earth was actually Lucifer's domain when he was kicked out of heaven along with 1/3 of all the angels and at that time God "repossessed" the earth, destroyed it making it "void and without form" and then recreated it to suit those created in His own image.

the key word is "believe". No evidence for that view, or belief.

From the Creationist standpoint, do we really care exactly how old they are. Aren't there bigger fish to fry......... such as dinasaurs......... common sense?

Hell, I've nearly sprained my ankle in a carnosaur footprint in the Paluxy river in Texas.

about 100 million year old footprint

I see you have never experienced a Southern California drought.
