The stone object claimed to be a 100-million-year-old fossilized human finger calls into question the viewpoint of accepted anthropology. Are we being served “filtered information”? Are that many things regarding the distant past of mankind that have been kept safe away from society? What if our History is all wrong?
According to anthropology, the oldest known human fossil is 2.8 million years old and comes from Africa. However, some discoveries simply don’t match the story, such as fossilized human fingers claimed to be 100 million years old, questioning this point of view.
In the mid-1980s, Carl Baugh and several other innovators announced that they had unearthed a long rock in a pile of gravel and that it was indeed a fossilized human finger. Carl Baugh of Glen Rose, Texas, is famous for the many claims of fossils that are out of reported location and artifacts. Right after that, he started displaying it as an alleged out-of-place fossil in his “Creation Evidence Museum” in Glen Rose, Texas.
Previous dinosaur fossils discovered in the area indicate that the formation was approximately 100 million years old. In this rare case, for the soft tissue to fossilize, paleontologists suggest that the finger and its owner must have been buried in an oxygen-free environment for a short time. The individual cells will mineralize separately during rapid burial, preserving their microscopic characteristics.
According to this theory, if true, the man who once possessed the finger must have died a brutal death. Since the only way fossils can form is under extreme conditions, it was just pure luck that allowed the discovery to happen.
To better understand the inner formation of this ancient finger, it was partially cut with a diamond saw, revealing distinct concentric circular internal structures.
During the analysis, the use of CAT scans revealed more intriguing clues, including the presence of what appeared to be bones, joints and tendons inside the finger. Because of their difference in densities, they appear as darker spots on X-rays.
According to the researchers, although the finger’s identity cannot be assigned to any particular individual or to any species, it is highly unlikely that it belongs to a primate. What remains unanswered is, how does a fossil finger more than 100 million years old still exist? Is it possible that a previously unidentified human species existed on Earth 100 million years ago? What if the so-called “misplaced artifact” is not really out of place?
If one were to claim the “finger” was an unreliable fossil, he would need convincing documentation that it was once naturally embedded in an ancient rock, as well as evidence convinced that it was a real fossil finger. So far, neither of them have been offered.
In fact, the lack of clear evidence of the stone’s origin diminishes its possible anti-evolutionary value. It may have been found in or near a gravel pile during the Cretaceous (the Cretaceous is a geological period that spanned from about 145 to 66 million years ago), as reported. But there is no distinct way to verify this claim. Although this fact matter does not refute the claims behind the object.
However, if the claim is true, it is still possible that the object fell from an above system, or was thrown or intentionally placed there by someone. And yes, it is also possible that a civilization like ours was not the first in this world. In this regard, this particular object may be rejected, but “probability” will not be rejected outright.
Finally, if we look back at history, we will see that there are thousands of mysterious events that have taken place in a small part of human history. And if we put the cave paintings aside (which won’t make a huge difference), the part that our historians and scientists actually know is probably no more than 3-10%. This is how 97% of human history is lost today.
