There are a number of fossils that just don't make geological or historical sense. A fossil of a human handprint, for example, was found in limestone estimated to be 110 million years old. What appears to be a fossilized human finger found in the Canadian Arctic also dates back 100 to 110 million years ago. And what appears to be the fossil of a human footprint, possibly wearing a sandal, was found near Delta, Utah in a shale deposit estimated to be 300 million to 600 million years old.

Plague doctor approaches possible plague victim. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic herbs. The masks were designed to protect them from the stench of the dead and dying since noxious or putrid air (also called a miasma) was considered to be the cause of infection. Being a plague doctor was unpleasant, dangerous and difficult. Their chances of survival in times of a plague epidemic were slim.
