Did modern humans make the Laetoli footprints?
In 1978, a team led by Mary Leakey discovered a series of footprints in Tanzania. These are known as the Laetoli footprints. According to many researchers, these footprints are identical to those made by humans. Paleoanthropologist, Donald Johanson stated, 'Make no mistake about it, they are like modern human footprints'.
Why is it, then, that most scientists reject the idea that humans made these footprints? To understand this odd situation, it's important to realize that evolutionists think that the footprints were made in mud 3.6 million years ago. Therefore, according to such evolutionary ideas, humans weren't around then, so the footprints can't be human! But if a human didn't make the footprints, who or what did? A Scientific American article acknowledges that this is still an 'unsolved mystery'. However, I can't help but feel it's a mystery of their own making, caused by their evolutionary thinking, instead of taking the Bible's history seriously.
