Egypt discovers what may be oldest human footprint

The article claims that a footprint has been found and may be more than 3 million years old….yes that is what the article said.  You read it correctly.  Also interesting is that they are going to use carbon dating to find the “exact” age of the footprint.  Now, I am not a scientist but I read somewhere once that carbon dating was very unreliable beyond a few thousand years and that at its best it could only give a wide age range (i.e. between 2,000 and 30,000 years – I just randomly picked the numbers for the age range here).

What would the Bible say as to the age of this footprint?  Well according to all that I have read the age of the earth is somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000 years.  So we automatically know that the footprint cannot be any older than that.  With that in mind, it will be interesting to see what date range the carbon tests produce.

    Hey Tom, its God! How are you? Well listen, i hate to tell you this but the earth is much older then ten thousand years. Its more like four billion. Yeah see I made the universe with no life in it. But I set the wheels in motion for life to exist one day. But don’t beat yourself up over this, its a common mistake. Oh just so you know-while were already clearing things up the I don’t hate ****, [Edited by Tom] I don’t condone any war, I believe in freedom and happiness, and even the worst of people are welcome in heaven. Well enjoy the rest of your life.
    peace out
    -God
