Large-animal fossils in carboniferous strata

The theory (or ideological doctrine) of evolution, in any of its forms,
requires gigantic expanses of time, and the standard dating schemes for 
palaeontological ages which we are familiar with have been formulated to 
provide that time for the doctrine of evolution.  In particular, the 
Carboniferous age is supposed to be 300 million years ago;  nothing is
supposed to have been alive in the Carboniferous other than green trees
and plants, fish, invertebrates, and insects.

Therefore, it comes as something of a shock to many of these same scientists
that large numbers of human and/or hominid and other large-animal bones,
teeth, tusks, claws, and even handles of implements have been turned up
in the coal-mining districts of Pennsylvania;  Pennsylvania coal is all
Carboniferous.

A selection of these findings may be viewed at:

This is a first-hand report;  a friend who is good with cameras and I went 
up and took a look at some of this stuff, including pieces which had been
left in situ.  These fossils are all petrified, mostly found embedded in
shale, formed along with the coal.
