Tony Martin found what he believes are Bigfoot fossil footprints in Maine in 1975. He was rock houding in Coos Canyon, near Byrun when he found rocks resembling 12″ long footprints, weighing about 5 pounds each. His first reaction was to think they were petrified Bigfoot tracks.
An article today in the Lewiston Maine Sun Journal shows Tony Martin holding one of his two footprint-shaped rocks.
Apparently many people he’s shown them to don’t agree either because they are too skeptical to care about anything concerning Bigfoot, or because they have alternate expanations for the existence of these possible Bigfoot fossil footprints.
The article cites one expert, Tom Weddle of the Maine Geological Survey. Weddle says that the rocks are probably about 400 million years old and made metamorphically from mica crystals and staurolite. He believes Bigfoot is a modern creature, not something that would have been roaming this planet 400 million years ago.
I am not a professional geologist, but will give my opinion on that anyhow. From what I’ve learned from Michael Cremo, author of Forbidden Archeology, humans have existed on this planet for millions of years. For example, he knows of the discovery of a Precambrian-era metal vase dating from 600 million years ago, as well as many similarly ancient discoveries. So I don’t buy the idea that Bigfoot could not have been around to create fossilized footprints in ancient Maine.
The article, by Kathryn Skelton, includes a short interview with BFRO founder Matt Moneymaker, regarding how he makes money and what he believes makes his $300 Bigfoot expeditions worthwhile.
