(1) 사람의 유물들 (Human Artifacts)
여러 시대와 장소에서 사람이 만든 물건들이 석탄 속에서 묻혀서 발견되고 있다. 금속통(thimble)1, 쇠단지(iron pot)2, 쇠기구(iron instrument)3, 8 캐럿 금사슬(gold chain)4, 3 개의 던지는 창들(throwing-spears)5, 은으로 장식된 금속용기(metallic vessel)6 등이 발견되었다. 광대한 연대의 지층에서 사람이 만든 다른 유물들이 암석 깊은 곳에 묻혀서 발견되었다. 정들(nails)7, 나사(screw)8, 이상한 동전(strange coin)9, 작은 세라믹 인형(tiny ceramic doll)10, 사람이 만든 것으로 추정되는 여러 물건들11..... 진화론적인 연대측정 방법에 의하면, 이러한 물건들은 사람보다 수천만 년에서 수억 년은 더 오래되었다. 다시 말하지만 무엇인가 잘못되었다.
(2) 사람의 것과 같은 발자국들 (Humanlike Footprints)
사람의 것과 같은 발자국들이 1억5천만 년에서 6억 년 전으로 추정하는 유타12, 켄터키13, 미조리14, 펜실바니아15 암석 지층에서 발견되었다. 아프리카 동부 탄자니아의 라테올리(Laetoli)에서, 메리 리키(Mary Leakey) 팀은 일련의 분명한 현대적인 사람의 발자국들을 발견했다.16 그들은 370만 년으로 연대가 측정되었다. 만약 사람이 이와 같은 발자국의 어떠한 것이라도 만들었다면, 진화론적 연대기는 완전히 잘못되었음에 틀림없다.

16.'‘Make no mistake about it,’ says Tim [White, who is probably recognized as the leading authority on the Laetoli footprints]. ‘They are like modern human footprints. If one were left in the sand of a California beach today, and a four-year-old were asked what it was, he would instantly say that someone had walked there. He wouldn’t be able to tell it from a hundred other prints on the beach, nor would you. The external morphology is the same. There is a well-shaped modern heel with a strong arch and a good ball of the foot in front of it. The big toe is straight in line. It doesn’t stick out to the side like an ape toe, or like the big toe in so many drawings you see of Australopithecines in books.’ ” Johanson and Edey, p. 250.

* Therefore, evolutionists usually conclude that the feet and stride of an apelike creature became humanlike several million years before the rest of their body. Most evolutionists credit Australopithecus afarensis (such as 'Lucy”) with this accomplishment. However, Lucy’s fingers and toes were curved downward as are those of tree-swinging monkeys and apes. (See 'Ape-Men?” on page 12.) The toes on the Laetoli footprints were straight. [See Russell H. Tuttle, 'The Pitted Pattern of Laetoli Feet,” Natural History, March 1990, pp. 61-64.]
