God is wonderful in that He can place a 290 million year old footprint in an earth that is not quite 7,000 years old. Amazing, our God of creation!

how did they come up with the date?
By a method of satan known as carbon dating. Everyone knows that god put the fossils just for teh lulz and to see who would be stupid enough to believe a prank of his instead of believing in the Bible.

Hi, it's easily explained by the inaccuracy of the dating methods used.

Unless you are an evolutionist, you can imagine man would be much more technologically advanced if we were around for 200 million years

Wouldn't that be around the time of the dinosaurs?
Just wondered as in that case we have more proof that dinosaurs
are not as old as scientists think.
Or is it that the earth is not as old as Scientists think
Or is it that man is older than scientists think and dinosaurs were born
yesterday.
Or urm could it be that scientists can't make up there mind about
anything!

Fact number 1: The footprint was found as an impression in solid granite.
Fact number 2: Granite is hardened igneous rock. Igneous rock takes takes millions of years to form into solid granite.
Fact Number 3: The footprint had to have been made in soft igneous rock millions of years before it turned into hard solid granite.

If the dating methods are inaccurate -

1 Why bother to use them?

2 What is an accurate dating method?
