Mastodon skull and flint knife lead to crazy theory!

A new study reports that stone-age artifacts discovered by fishermen from the Chesapeake Bay suggest that humans could have settled in North America thousands of years before previously thought.

This flint tool, found with remains of a mastodon, suggests that humans are much older in North America than originally thought.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - These artifacts include mastodon remains that have been radio-carbon dated to more than 22,000 years old, up to ten thousand years older than the Clovis culture-which most researchers believe to be the earliest group of humans to settle in the Western Hemisphere-from 13,000 to 16,500 years ago.

You can be a light in the darkness with "prayer and action."

A flint tool was also found with the mastodon skull in the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay.

Despite these incredible findings, much of the archaeological community remains skeptical.

"The bottom line is, there simply is no context for these discoveries," University of Arizona-Tuscon archaeologist Vance Holliday said. "There's absolutely no DNA evidence."

Though the two items were found together that doesn't meant that they were from the same time frame Holliday continued; there isn't any way to tell if they're from the same time frame.

An archaeologist at the Smithsonian Institution, Dennis Stanford, believes the tool shows wear-proof, he says, that it was used before it was submerged in water. The Chesapeake bay has been underwater since the end of the last ice age around 14,000 years ago, which means that this tool is at least 14,000-years-old.

Stanford believes that it was probably used to butcher the mastodon, which would make it 22,000 years old.
