There so many things we don't know about the natural history and evolution of life on our planet. I find it all fascinating.

Maybe you did and had just forgotten about it. At the bottom of the article it said the find was originally discovered in 2000.

Its cool, but they have the "date" wrong. Earth is only about 10,000 years old at the oldest and creatures didn't evolve from one thing to another.

I chuckle when scientists come up with these "dates"

History is subjective. How far back a person goes when looking at history is based solely on an individual's beliefs.

You should read some of Neil Asher Silberman's work. He is an Israeli archeologist, and he, his partner and their teams have made some truly fascinating discoveries. No so much about items, but about dates.

Actually, one of the reasons that it's taken 8 years for them to announce the discovery is because they have been subjecting the area to testing, using numerous methods of dating. They're pretty confindent about the approximate age of the prints.

Interesting article! And can we please not turn this into a battle between the Creationists & Evolutionists? I can feel one brewing...

maybe some early human was just messing around,and say hey this will drive people nuts in 600 million years.

Anything is possible. Supposedly, only the most rudimentary life forms existed during that time, but hey, you never can tell.
