Fast Fossilization

Recently this petrified human brain site has been getting some attention. I have no idea whether it's real or a parody, but this kind of thing is certainly common among creationist arguments. I've already posted about the fossilized teddy bear, and the below image shows what is apparently a fossilized human foot, still inside its boot:


These nutjobs don't seem to realize that the time it takes for fossils to form is entirely irrelevant. What matters is the age of the fossils since formation, and many independent dating techniques (radiometric dating, fission-track dating, paleomagnetism, amino acid dating) all agree that dinosaur bones are many millions of years old.

it and checking back frequently!
