s company and concluded that the boot was made in the early 1950's.

The rubber-soled boot with petrified cowboy leg, bones and all was found in a dry creek bed near the West Texas town of Iraan, about 1980 by Mr. He recognized the "number 10 stitch pattern" used by his uncle?

A complete set of these scans remains with the boot at the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, Texas.

"We know absolutely for certain, it takes millions and millions of years for fossils to petrify." Oh yeah? The Radiologic Technician was Evelyn Americus, AART.

Leddy boot company of San Angelo, Texas which began manufacturing boots in 1936.“This technique stands to revolutionize radiocarbon dating,” said Marvin Rowe, Ph. “It expands the possibility for analyzing extensive museum collections that have previously been off limits because of their rarity or intrinsic value and the destructive nature of the current method of radiocarbon dating.In theory, it could even be used to date the Shroud of Turin.” Rowe explained that the new method is a form of radiocarbon dating, the archaeologist’s standard tool to estimate the age of an object by measuring its content of naturally-occurring radioactive carbon.Conventional carbon dating estimates the age of an artifact based on its content of carbon-14 (C-14), a naturally occurring, radioactive form of carbon.Comparing the C-14 levels in the object to levels of C-14 expected in the atmosphere for a particular historic period allows scientists to estimate the age of an artifact.Although it sometimes requires taking minute samples of an object, even that damage may be unacceptable for some artifacts.
