Alabama Sightings: Gorilla or Bigfoot ?

There have been several Bigfoot reports in the past few years from residents near the Tallapoosa County area in Alabama. In 2012 we broke the news reports about the strange sightings in Hale County and …

Footprint Of God

Well, to add to the mystique surrounding reported discoveries of giant skeletons, and to lend support to John J Williams’ claims of having found an electrical device embedded in what he claims is a chunk of granite he found on the ground, I give you the Footprint of God.

Michael Tellinger shows off what could be one of the best pieces of evidence that there were giants on Earth a long, long time ago. Geologists have marvelled at this giant foot print in rough granite, about 4 feet long. Some still say that it is a natural erosion pattern.
Personally I find that suggestion highy improbable for various reasons that I will not go into here. Prof. Pieter Wagener from UPE, suggests that “there is a higher probability of little green men arriving from space and licking it out with their tongues, than being created by natural erosion”.
It is located in South Africa, near the town of Mpaluzi, close to the Swaziland border. It is estimated to be between 200 million and 3 Billion years old because of our current understanding of the formation of granites in Earth’s history. This dating immediately causes great debate and argument – so I urge you to keep your mind open and focused on the evidence.

Now, I will be the first to admit this looks a lot like a footprint. However there are just a couple of problems. When you are getting the best view of the print, where it looks most like a foot, you are viewing it from an actually pretty significant angle, meaning that the foot would have been at an ankle breaking angle when it first pressed into ground. And most importantly fossils and preserved footprints are found in sedimentary rock, sandstones and limestones typically.

In Granite? Never.

Granites cool from molten masses which were entirely underneath the surface of the Earth; they form under temperature conditions which would obliterate organic tissue, and are molten for up to millions of years (extreme cases: more generally ten-to-hundreds of thousands). Hence they do not form in environments where living things are present.

So unless some giant was spelunking in lava and got a serious owie then this is just a very rare coincidence or a very clever hoax. Even if a creature stepped in lava, being fluid it would not hold the shape. Fossils, and preserved footprints are preserved by being left behind in wet clay or mud that dries in that shape, and is filled in by subsequent layers. Sometimes more mud, other times volcanic ash. But always sedimentary rock. So how could erosion cause such a clear representation of what to all appearances is a human, albeit extremely large footprint?

Here is an example of a series of other erosion forms very similar.

Now, you may say this does not offer the same level of definition that Tellinger’s find does, yet it is clear to me

They were just playing an early version of Twister while listening to rock music.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    To me, the most likely explanation is that it was carved. And why not.

    Actually, if it was imprinted 200,000,000 years ago, I very much doubt it would still be there, unless it was buried most of that time.

    Wow. I’m just stunned that no one has been able to discern that the giant KICKED the rock. I mean, c’mon.

  • radioredrafts

    If it did, there would be a bunch of surrounding craters, all of them resembling a right foot.
