Ancient Footprints In Crete Challenge Theory of Human Evolution

VEN (ATHENS) —  In an obscure outcropping of petrified volcanic ash at Trachilos in Crete, a team of international archaeologists, lead by University of Pennsylvania’s Dr Ingo Swann,  have made a breathtaking and some say controversial discovery which — if they’re findings are confirmed  — could reset the clock on when humans first appeared as a separate species by millions of years!

“We’ve never seen anything like this before anywhere!” one researcher told VEN‘s Senior Science Correspondent Otto Lidenbrock Tuesday.

Not so fast, says renown paleontologist Dr Friedrich von Schoenvorts, author of the groundbreaking Give Me A  Dinosaur Tooth, I’ll Tell You Exactly What The Creature Looked Like, who believes that the footprints were made by not by humans but by dinosaurs who were evolving at an accelerated rate.

“We have seen these so-called footprints in the  fossil records many, many times, especially in China, Africa, and parts of the Western United States.

“Based on our peer-reviewed research (which theirs is not) we determined that these impressions were made by a smaller member  (by dino standards) of  the Compsognathus family  — known as the Pradasaurus — which had an unusual and unique podal appendage resembling what one might think of  — in layman’s terms — as an attractive woman’s 5-inch stiletto high heel.”
