Why so skeptical?

 

Scientists dated the footprints by studying their geological position and from nearby fossils of long-extinct animals including mammoth, ancient horse and early vole.

This must be a joke.  Or that someone was smoking something.  I find this ridiculous.  Do you guys think this is for real?

What's so hard to believe?  You do know some magical being didn't just wave his arms and say "Let there be humans" right?

i do not want to be the doom sayer however, by looking at that one print. it looks as though it could have been naturally formed.

Yes.  It does not look like a footprint to me.  Looks like it's just random puddles.

I did not think Cannon was being produced at that time.  :)

Can't wait for the story tellers of the "great book" to come in and explain this one and claim religion still matters.

 

I'm trying not to offend anyone by saying that...I just want my country (America) to stop having that ball and chain directly/indirectly influencing the decisions made.

I like how people immediately come in and throw religion under the bus for no apparent reason.

Looks like a random shape to me. Humans were not around 800,000 years ago.

Obviously the rock wasn't always a rock.

This. How ironic that some time ago there was a thread about why all religious people hate atheists when it looks like atheists would go pick any reason to start a debate. Its just a friggin footprint lol, I didn't see any religious connotation to it, you did! No reason to get all defensive, unless you feel this is threatening your belief.

I think it's mostly due to the Creationists and their 6-10,000 year old Earth ideas...

Wrong :p The Homo genus is thought to be around 1.8 to 2.5 million years old, they would still be classed as "human" since Homo = Human.

If you mean humans like modern man then obviously no, but our distant relatives were.
