    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration have announced the discovery of a 100 million year old non human footprint. Pictured above the now fossilised footprint appears to belong to an animal with four toes and measures 30cm in width, indicating that the beast it belonged to was very large in size and is now most probably extinct. The discoverer of the footprint Ray Stanford describes the non-human animal as a "four-footed tank. It was quite heavy, there’s a quite a ridge or push-up here."

    And for those who have any doubts the footprints authenticity has now been confirmed by David Weishampel of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.



    INCREDIBLE! :O

    Kinda strange how they won't divulge where they found it, especially given the said age of it.

    You really should quote the whole article. This last part is especially important:
    There is nothing to suggest that this is aliens.

    @Everyone: Read the entire article from the source link. I only quoted the end and the OP only includes the beginning.

    Edit: NASA themselves say it was found at Goddard in Maryland.

    It was found in Maryland, on a NASA campus, which is the only piece of news really since we have already found cretaceous dinosaur footprints in NA. Nothing incredible really.

    I don't see what the big deal is. These days, nobody even cares if someone finds a dinosaur skeleton, but when you find a footprint it's INCREDIBLE!

    When I heard NASA, I of course thought they found a non human footprint on Mars...

    So... 2 questions. A) Why does anybody care about another dinosaur footprint and B) Why is NASA looking for dinosaur footprints? Would have been more exciting if it was on Mars (but then again, if they had found it on Mars, it could have just been a random shape, so still...)

    Same here dude, but I thought it was weird it specifically says it's not a human footprint.
    I mean if it was about a footprint on Mars that would be kind of obvious...

    I thought you meant on Mars or something.
    Ah well, back to videogames.
    EDIT:

    Oh. Well.
    I think that proves that there is a god. :creep:

    Maybe it just proves that if there is a God, he has a wicked sense of humor.

    Or maybe it's just a coincidence that happened over millions of years through a meteor strike, planetary winds, and possibly water erosion.
