Pennsylvania Bones

Description: Beginning in the early 1980's Ed Conrad had been digging in the anthracite coal beds of Pennsylvania uncovering what appeared to be fossilized human bones. Over the next twenty years Ed has been trying to convince the scientific community that these are human bones. Some of the specimens are on display at the Greater Hazieton Historical Society with the following quotation, This is the only museum in the world where petrified bone, found between coal veins is on display.

Mainstream Theory: The objects are conincidental images of human anatomy. Under scientific examination they are found to be inorganic in nature.

Alternative Theory: When Ed Conrad first discovered the bones he took them to the Smithsonian Institution for analysis but after hearing that they were from the Carboniferous Period (hundreds of millions before man evolved according to the evolutionary theory), they simply looked at them and said they were not fossilized bones without even examing them through scientific analysis. Ed Conrad had the bones investigated by independent persons and submitted them to several different tests including high power magnification. According to the investigator the haversian canals present in all bone material, even fossilized ones, can be seen in the specimens.
