Darwin´s Mistake  



Tracking of humans from the Mesozoic
Since 1908 traces of humans besides imprints of dinosaurs from the Cretaceous were periodically found in the same and similar layers. In several other states of the US respective traces at different times and places were also evidenced by geologists over the past decades.

In the 1960’s and 70’s by the geologist Dr. Cecil N. Dougherty, who documented traces of men in geologic layers of the Mesozoic, the age of the dinosaurs, in his book "Valley of the Giants". During his visit in Glen Rose Zillmer got permission to publish corresponding photos in his book "Darwin’s Mistake".


Menschenspuen und Trittsiegel von Dinosauriern in Glen Rose dokumentiert von Cecil Dougherty in Darwins Irrtum bzw. Darwin´s Mistake

Dinosaurs and humans lived together: On the left picture from Dr. Cecil N. Dougherty (copyright) the print of a human foot next to a three-toed foot print of an Acrocanthosaurus in the same geological layer at the Paluxy River in Glen Rose can be seen. The other pictures show traces in limestone layers from the Cretaceous, where meat eating and herbivore dinosaurs lived at the Paluxy River. More photos of Dr. Dougherty are shown in "Darwin’s Mistake". (Pictures copyright Dr. C. Dougherty)

Human like foot prints next to those of dinosaurs

Trittsiegel im Paluxy-River

Here a 1996 human like foot print, which weathered rapidly after exposure. The ledge will be ablated later,
as the foot prints may continue under it. With a little luck more foot prints will be found. In 2001 this ledge was
removed. See update below

Burdick Fussabdruck

This perfectly looking foot print was found in the Paluxy River region. Because it is so perfect, and such a relic in the mud seems rather unlikely this foot print was rated a falsification over decades. This rock was serrated by several cuts a few years ago. It shows, that the old mud gushed up between the toes and petrified (image right). The picture below shows, cutting the heel section, that the original mud was compressed by the weight, proven by the alteration of the structure and color (arrows). It was thus ascertained, the foot print was not, as originally suspected, artistically chiseled out of the limestone in stonecutter manner.

Fossiler Finger von Glen Rose in Zillmers Hand

In the proximity of the Paluxy River this fossilized finger, which still reveals the inner bone structure, was also found. In the picture on the right Zillmer holds the fossilized finger in his hand.

In layers from the Cretaceous besides human foot prints also human imprints of hands were found. Left: A recent photo of Dr. Carl Baugh. Right: Dr. Cecil Dougherty in the 70’s.



Update on Paluxy River-excavations



Versteinerte Fußabdrücke im Paluxy-River

The limestone layer was removed (s. upper picture) and the path of foot prints continues further (picture 1). Three foot print tracks of humans run across the dinosaur path. The last step in this sequence is located athwart amidst a dinosaur-foot print (picture 2). Picture 3: Blow-up with the foot of Larissa Zillmer in 2001 for comparison. Picture 4: Fitting proof of the foot. Perfect fit. Picture 5 and 6: The second last, a little unclear foot print. But also here, the fitting proof shows, that the imprint fits perfectly due to the elevation at the interior of the foot.

Zillmer und Mabel Meister

Zillmer visited the meanwhile deceased Mabel Meister, after this discovery was described in literature in "Darwin’s Mistake". Mabel Meister guarded a treasure of controversial earth’s history found by her husband: a shoe treaded a trilobite. This was manifested in a 570 million years old slate. The Smithsonian Institution wanted to have, but not publicly display this discovery. Zillmer recommended the Meister print to the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, where it can be visited.




Fußspuren neben Dinosaurier-Trittsiegeln Nähe Clayton

By chance Zillmer saw old photos of human foot prints next to those of dinosaurs in a local museum in New Mexico. According the statement of the museum’s manageress such traces were found at three different locations in the New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas triangle. Zillmer documents in "Errors of Earth’s history" a sequence of such traces in the proximity of Clayton.

Artefakte aus der Ausstellung im Creation Evidence Museum, Glen Rose

The fossilized hammer from the dinosaur age, described extensively in "Darwin’s Mistake" (recent photo on the right during Zillmer’s visit in Glen Rose 2001) is object of passionate controversies, as this relatively modern looking hammer, named the London artefact, after its discovery in the year 1934, embedded in limestone. Even after opening of the rock the handle of petrified wood (!) remains entrapped by rock. The steel of the hammer head consists of 97% pure iron without any addition of carbon. It is indeed possible to produce pure iron, but in this case we are talking about steel, proven by radiograms, that its structure is directional, and thus, graded. We are until today technically not able to produce such a pure steel.

The photo on the left shows Zillmer with a kind of iron beaker, which in 1912 fell out of a big chunk of coal while crushing it. The coal came from the Oklahoma-Mine in Wilburton and is supposed to be 300 million years old. Exhibited at the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose.

Dr. Carl Baugh und Hans-Joachim Zillmer vor dem bei der Ausstellung Ancient Mysteries erstmals in Europa präsentierten Hammer

Dr. Carl Baugh and Hans-Joachim Zillmer in front of the London artefact during the exhibition "Unsolved Mysteries" presenting the hammer in Europe for the first time. Picture right: Michael Cremo (author of "Forbidden Archaeology" and Hans-Joachim Zillmer after their speeches during the opening of the exhibition "Unsolved Mysteries" in Vienna. Cremo presented discoveries with human relics from geologic layers of the past 600 million years, therefore, also from times of the dinosaurs – if the geologic time table is correct.

Versteinerter Baum

Zillmer during the excavation of a Stegosaurus in Colorado next to a fossilized tree, which apparently was pressed into an oval shape and consists of minerals within (picture right). Can a tree be squeezed in such a way? The riddle is discussed in „Mistake Earth Science “

Hand und Fuß in Lydit eingeschweisst

Dr. Willibald Katzinger (middle), Director of the Nordico-Museum in Linz (Austria) and Hans-Joachim Zillmer with Professor Guitierrez Lega in Bogota (Columbia). In his collection there is a hand and a foot of a human being shrink-wrapped in lydite, as it was established by scientists in Vienna. The stone lydite dates from the Mesozoic, the age of the dinosaurs, and was found next to other correspondingly old fossils in an altitude of 2000 meters in Columbia.

Schnelle Versteinerung durch Einschluß

This for more than 250 million years extinct trilobite (left) and the supposedly 45 million years ago fossilized crab from Verona (Italy), in Zillmer’s fossil collection, were quickly preserved by catastrophic circumstances, as they would otherwise be decayed. Fossilizations require rapid conservation under exclusion of air, as the biologic tissue will otherwise decay. According to official conception fossilizations take extremely long, because they are located in geological layers for which a long generation period is proclaimed. According to Zillmer on the one hand the fossilization happens very quickly and, apart from that, the previously soft animal naturally hardens, because it was encased. The geologic layer according to Zillmer consequently hardens as fast as concrete and not over a long period of time. From: "Mistake Earth Science "

Schnelle Versteinerungen

In the 1960’s this leg was fossilized, photographed by Zillmer in 2002. The boot’s leather was not petrified. Also it is questionable, how a jellyfish (picture right) can be fossilized, if these processes run slowly. Zillmer’s conclusion: Fossilisations proceed rapidly. From "Mistake Earth Science ".

Internationales Kolloquium Erdexpansion

Klaus Vogel building earth expansion globes, which he presented on May 24/25, 2003 during the "International Earth Expansion Colloquium - a theory on the test-bench". This congress took place at the Bergbau- und Industriemuseum Upper Bavaria in Theuern Castle and was organised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karl-Heinz Jacob (Echnical University Berlin). Picture right: The astronomer Professor Dr. Wolfgang Kundt and Hans-Joachim Zillmer as participants of the colloquium.




Silverbell Artefakte aus Tucson, Arizona

The Silverbell-artefacts excavated 1924 near Tucson (Arizona) lie in a cellar of a museum. Zillmer tracked them down and documents them in "Columbus came last". The artefacts hold Latin and Hebrew inscriptions as well as the year 800. Did old Europeans long before Columbus already arrive in America, or are the artifacts probably just fake, even though the excavations were conducted by the University of Tucson?
