fossil of a dinosaur footprint from the Cretaceous period was discovered in the riverbed of the Raluxy River in Texas. This discovery was followed by a more astonishing one --- a fossil of 12 pairs of human footprints was discovered 18 and a half inches above the dinosaur footprint. A pair of human footprints was pressed over the three-toed dinosaur footprint, cutting into it. Thus, the vertical section of the dinosaur footprint showed signs of compression. These signs proved the fossil to be authentic because no existing technology today is capable of achieving the same result. Archeologists also discovered fossils of a human finger and of a hammer made of iron and wood inside and aligned with a layer of rock. The handle remained attached to the hammer. The hammer was made of an alloy of a mixture that had never been seen before, which was 96.6% iron, 0.74% sulphur, and 2.6% chlorine. It is beyond today’s technology to make an alloy out of a combination of these elements. The handle had turned into coal; this kind of transformation requires an extremely high pressure and temperature from the rock stratum in the area. If the hammer had been dropped in the area after the rock stratum had been formed, there simply was nothing in the environment that could have caused this transformation. The only logical explanation was that the hammer had been in the rock stratum before the stratum was formed. Because there was no fossil found in other stratum in the area and the only fossils of the dinosaur footprint and of the hammer were inside the same rock stratum, archeologists were able to confirm that man and dinosaurs did exist in the same period of time.
