We must favor verifiable evidence over private feeling. Otherwise we leave ourselves vulnerable to those who would obscure the truth.

My favorite part of that

My favorite part of that site is when they claim the following:

Quote:
This amazing fossil was found along the banks of the Paluxy River, famous for its dinosaur and human tracks. The dramatic three-dimensional shape is unmistakable. (Many three-dimension fossils are found near by.) This fossil has been carefully analyzed, x-rayed, CT-scanned and found perfectly consistent with a human finger.

Now...a CAT scan, or CT-scan is used to look at tissue. Since different tissue absorbs radiation at different rates, you can use a computer to visualize the organs and surrounding tissue. Now, a fossil is rock. So...I'm pretty sure that a CT would be pretty useless. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this point that doing a CT scan on a rock is pretty odd. Of course, the X-ray bit is odd too, since I'm pretty sure the bone would have been long mineralized as well.....and now I'm reading that they did an MRI on the fossil...this is just wierd.
