Fossil faced man


This flint stone from the Swedish westcoast

can’t give the impression of being nothing

else than a detailed human head.

This is extraordinary because we more than

less supposed to be apes three million years ago.


Flint(silex)were developed during the Cretaceous period 65-140 million years ago.

(according to the evolution therory)

One convincing sign that the head is not man-made is that the head is distorted and that could only have happend while the flint emerged and were soft and formable.


Flint is very recognizeble by it´s hard 

glassy characteristics and are not suitable

to carve in like marble  or jade.


Flint is often embedded in a thin layer of chalk.

Look at the clear boundary between the white chalk and the dark inside on the divided flint.

The stone itself shows that it is impossible that it is a sculpture since the white layer is utmost thin and the smallest attempt to carve would do so that the dark material inside in the flint become visible.

All the deepest parts on the ”Fossil Faced Man” are white and the dark flint is only visible there it have been damaged.

Trilobites are expected to be bilaterally symmetric in their original shape.

The trilobites right eye is expected to be located on the opposite side of the

head at the same height as the left one.

This trilobite change of shape looks like a half melted block of chocolate

forgotten in the heat of the sun.

The deformation depends on the directions of the pressures in the strata before it had the chance to solidify.

A special designed computer program called “MsWellman” helps palaeontologists to morph deformed fossils back to their original shapes.

Jellyfish from Carbondale Formation, Illinois

98 per cent water


A general opinion is that the jellyfish consider being exquisitely rare to be fossilized.

It’s just not common for soft tissues to be preserved.

I think the expression “exquisitely rare” is an exaggeration.


In Australia it happen to be an area, about three hundred miles big, where you can find millions of fossilized jellyfishes.


For how long can a jellyfish lay dead on a beach or in water before it gets

dry or decay?

In my opinion it has to be a question of a couple of days.

The impression of the jellyfish has

to be created through a fast process, and without leaving any trace of disintegration.


According to the evolution theory disintegrated bacteria suppose to be

the first form of life that came into existence 3, 8 billion years ago.

Fossilized Coelacanth with preserved outlines of soft parts displayed in a Museum of Natural History.

The coelacanth left a cavity in a rock that got filled in by other minerals.
