By: LARRY SITES To: TYLER A. WUNDER Re: THE ARK OF NOAH re Ray Speakmon RS>> Explain why a trilobite was found compressed in a child's RS>> footprint (Dr. Clifford Burdick) TA> I'd prefer to be able to believe it; do you have a citation? Burdick is a creationist loon. If you want to read about this print aka the Meister Footprint, the Trilobite man or the Cambrian man, see "Alleged Human Footprint from Middle Cambrian Strata, Millard County, Utah" by Wm. Lee Stokes starting on page 187 of _Journal of Geological Education_, 1986, vol 34. It includes pictures and at the best might be described as the outline of a sandal, ie no toes visable. It comes from an area where lots of similar "prints" are formed by the way the rocks split open. It is most likely NOT a print in the sense of being pressed into soft material as there is no evidence of any material being squished out around the edges. The article explains it all. Burdick is debunked! BTW, if you go look up the article, look through the other back issues of the journal. Almost every one has an article or two trashing creationism. Peace, Larry ___
