I can’t remember the name of the alert reader who sent me this photo, an exhibit in some creation museum (I believe it’s in Canada, but correct me if I’m wrong). It shows several examples of how fossils can supposedly form rapidly, with the intent, of course, of casting doubt on the age of supposedly old real fossil and promoting the idea that the Earth is young.
One of the artifacts is a “fossilized” human leg in a “fossilized” cowboy boot, found in 1980 with the boot dated to about 1950 (top row, middle; click to enlarge):
The response? It’s a fake, of course, not fossilized at all.
