> MAN AS OLD AS COAL
As you all know by now, truth no longer is playing second fiddle
to the fiction, fantasy and fairy tales that have been dished out
for more than a century about man's origin and ancestry.
Finally, it's the official end of the deceit, deception, collusion and
conspiracy that has long been perpetrated by arrogant, egotistical
members of the Scientific Establshment in and out of its hallowed
Halls of Learning.
Their monumental hoax on mankind has met its match with the
presentation of undeniable physical evidence that, multi-millions of
years ago, the good earth wasn't anything like what has long
been depicted by the scientific community.
For one thing, man -- in almost our present form -- existed while
coal was being formed, and our ancestors lived alongside
giant scorpions, dinosaurs and beasts with six-inch-high canine
And man and animals had one thing in common. Both were
annihilated in some incredible catastrophe that blew them limb
from limb and scattered their bones, teeth and soft organs
in all directions..
What happened next is a testament to the late, great Immanuel
Velikovsky who, more than a half-century ago, said the true story
of earth's -- and man's -- past is written in the rocks, visible for
all to see as part of the fossil record.
Eons ago -- before coal hardened -- some sort of fluid engulfed the
bones, teeth and soft organs just after the great catastrophe, causing
them to petrifiy and now offer a mindboggling horror story of
mankind's distant past.
That man existed during the Carboniferous Period also offers
proof that we could not possibly have evolved as suggested
by the Darwin Theory.
Rightly so, because the theory of the evolution of man never
possessed a shred of physical evidence in the first place.
Man could not -- and did not -- become such a magnificent machine
by a series of incredible accidents of nature since it's an
astronomical mathematical absurdity.
Even Charles Darwin had a sneaky suspicion his theory was full
of hot air.
And Earnest Hooton, longtime professor of anthropology at Harvard
University, seconded the motion years later in his book, "Apes, Men
and Morons," citing the absence of undeniable physical evidence.
But, since we were spoon-fed such pablum -- the evolution of man --
by members of the omniscient Scientific Establishment, most of us
ate up every word. These pompous asses were neither to be
questioned nor challenged.
About a year after finding my first specimen of petrified bone between
coal veins in June 1981, I couldn't believe the incedible resistence
I was encountering in my pursuit of honest investigation.
My longtime friend, Clayton Lennon (1900-1996), warned me it
wouldn't be easy and one day, between puffs of his cigar,
summed up my despair quite eloquently .
Meanwhile, as their noses continued to grow, so also did the
arrogance of members of the Scientific Establishment who had
long lost the goal of a search for truth. The only important thing
to them, I soon learned, was to make no waves and concentrate
on protecting their vested interests.
Over time, they had become incredibly ruthless and bold, really
believing that -- as members of omnipotent Acadamia -- they could
do anything they damn well pleased and answer to no one..
Since I have had a ringside seat over these past 22 years, I assure
you that it has included not only denial of physical evidence that
could -- would -- destroy the theory of the evolution of man but
actually tampering with that evidence -- and I have come right out
and named names.
Then, with brass testacles, the criminals were actually belitting
the victim, with character assassination leveled like a Gatling gun.
And even worse, the assault on truth was adamantly defended by
Fortunately, for your grandchildren and mine, that day is over.
The pseudoscientists' day of reckoning has finally arrived.
But it comes as no surprise. After all, they had been forewarned:
TRUTH FINALLY CATCHES UP TO THE PERPETRATORS
OF DECEIT, DECEPTION, COLLUSION AND CONSPIRACY
>> MAN AS OLD AS COAL
>> All Specimens Found Between Anthracite Veins
(Strata geologically dated at a minimum of 280 million years)
Here are just a few of the thousands upon thousands of specimens
of petrified bones, teeth and/or even soft organs -- some human --
that I have discovered between two separate anthracite veins
in Northeastern Pennsylvania over the past 22 years.
Strange, according to scientific doctrine, they couldn't possibly
have been found in Carboniferous strata, dated at a minimum
of 280 million years.
You see, every scientific textbook insists that no large land
animals, let alone man, existed back then. Hell, man wouldn't begin
evolving until multi-millions of years later, the pseudos proclaimed.
But the incredible arsenal of petrified bones, teeth and even soft
organs proves -- beyond doubt -- that man and large land animals
indeed had been around when coal was being formed. Otherwise,
their mortal remains could not have been preserved between layers
of anthracite as the result of a catastrophe beyond our wildest
And, since this is the grim evidence that a catastrophe happened
before, there is NO question that it could happen again.
Velikovsky provided evidence of catastrophes in his two books,
"Worlds in Collision" and "Earth in Upheaval," published back
in the early 1950s. In them, he offered undeniable evidence of
calamities beyond human comprehension but was ridiculed
and badmouthed by members of the Scientific Establishment.
Here's a copy of these two books, in paperback, and an explanation
why Velikovsky was treated with scorn and contempt, which is how
members of the Scientific Establishment have treated me for the last
21 1/2 years.
A longtime newspaperman, I figured -- when realizing I was getting
the shaft from the Scientific Establishment -- I'd get a fair shake
from newspapers in an effort to tell my story.
I thought the editors would be genuinely interested in what might've
sounded like a farfetched story, except that it was backed up by
petrified bones, teeth and soft organs as old as coal.
Reporters from the Allentown (Pa.) Call-Chronicle and Las Vegas
Sun, to mention just two, were greatly impressed. But when their
stories appeared in print, it took my breath away. The articles were
completely negative, making me look like that proverbial horse's
Naturally, there was nothing I could do about it, so I had to give up
on newspapers completely. I had long known the New York Times,
Washington Post and Philadelphia Inquirer wouldn't touch it because
they had several opportunities to do so but bowed to their vested
interests and ignored me.
Ditto for the TV network news shows like "60 Minutes."
For the longest time, it appeared the world would never know the truth
about the catastrophe that decimated both man and animal while coal
was being formed.
Then a miracle happened -- along came the Internet. It gave me a way
to reach the pubic but, of course, the public wasn't paying attention
because members of the Scientific Establishment kept making me
look like a fool and an imbecile.
And, if you recall, they had been doing a mighty fine job of it
right up until yesterday. That's when members of the Scientific
Establishment got the second biggest shock of their lives, dwarfed
only by the attack on the Twin Towers.
Suddenly overnight, with the presentation of an arsenal of physical
evidence, the ridicule and character assassination have eased
Suddenly, their cannons ran out of ammunition, accusations that
I'm a liar and a fraud.
Suddenly, these Clown Princes of Sciences -- long having made
a joke at the expense of sacred Science -- finally realized that
their involvement in deceit, deception, collusion and conspiracy
has caught up with them.
These Omniscient Buffoons have defended their colleagues
who, with incredible audacity, have made a mockery of physical
evidence, totally ignoring it and sometimes even tampering with it.
Thomas Alva Edison probably put in a nutshell what they were
doing for so long, and my dear friend Clayton was right on target,
>========= SOME OF THE SPECIMENS =========
> THE VERY FIRST DISCOVERY
The following is the very first discovery of petrified bone in
coal-bearing Carboniferous strata in June 1981.
The specimen, which I found by accident, resembled a giant skull
and the Smithsonian expressed an interest after receiving a photo,
inviting me to bring it down to Washington so it could be examined
Three of its "experts" -- an anthropologist, a paleontologist and a
geologist -- looked it over carefully but, after a few minutes,
concurred that it was nothing more than a rock or concretion,
certainly nothng that had ever lived.
No one mentioned that a microscopic study of the specimen's
cellular structure would accurately identify whether it is or is not
bone. (I had no knowledge of this fact at the time and wouldn't
be aware of it until many months later)
In any event, while preparing to leave the Smithsonian, I politely
asked if they would want to keep the specimen, perhaps to break
apart the jaw-like area to see if teeth could be found inside. The
three "experts" -- Joseph Brown and Robert McCurdy, the only
two names I remember -- laughed at me and said it would be
an absolute waste of their time.
About a month later -- rather discouraged -- I decided to search
the interior of the jaw-like area on my own. It began with a nail
to penetrate the rock hardness, then using all sorts of small tools
to reach inside and, strangely, begin pulling out what resembled
I was mysified that some sort of cavity existed and contacted
the Smithsonian about this -- but was ignored.
After several weeks of part-time labor, I found a pair of peculiar
objects inside. Photos were taken, greatly enlarged and sent to
Krogman, the bone expert.
Our friendship had begun months previous when I had driven
to Lancaster to show him the first strange sPecimen I had found
that had come from between coal veins -- the large skull that
the Smithsonian later dismissed as a rock.
Krogman studied the photo of the inclusion and then told me over
the phone that the object is definitely a premolar tooth because
"I can see a pair of cusps."
Here's the photo that Krogman had examined, with the dime
offering an indication of size.
The photo below shows another view of where the premolar was
Krogman suggested an infrared scan be performed and it was done
at American Medical Laboratories in Chantilly, Va. Here's the result
of the test:
This is what the laboratory stated in its official report:
It meant that the inclusion in the jaw-like area was neither rock
nor concretion but something that once lived.
When the scan was interpreted later, this fact was confirmed.
It also should be emphasized that microscopic study of the
skull-like object was conducted and Haversian canals -- miniscule
circles, the tell-tale sign of bone -- were visible.
It had prompted Krogman, at one point, to offer great encourgement,
as he followed the discoveries with great interest.:
>> PETRIFIED HUMAN SKULL
The following specimen was identified by Krogman as a petrified
human calvarium -- a skull with the eyesockets broken off -- after
he personally had examined it and even measured it with
caliphers, expressing pleasure with the results..
Krogman, who was personally invited by the Egyptian government
to be present when a Pharoah's tomb was opened years before, is
shown holding the calvarium in the second photo.
Moments after this photo was taken of Krogman with the specimen,
an associate -- a medical doctor -- walked into his office at the
Cooper Clinic in Lancaster, Pa., and he told him to come closer
to see "the oldest human skull ever found."
Two other photos of the specimen:
Meanwhile, a CATscan revealed a second protrusion not visible
to the naked eye but located precisely where it would be expected
to be found in a human cranium.
Here's a copy of that scan:
This specimen also tested positive for the presence of Haversian
canals under microscopic scrutiny.
Additionally, American Medical Laboratories performed testing
of calculus analysis by crystallography on the specimen and
found "a composition of dried blood intermingled with a few
small crystals resembling calcium oxalate dihydrate."
The laboratory's official report follows:
> ANOTHER PETRIFIED HUMAN SKULL -- IN A BOULDER
Another petrified human cranium was found approximately
a year later only a short distance from where the human
calvarium was discovered.
It was -- still is -- embedded in a boulder that must weigh at
least 3,000 pounds.
The Smithsonian was sent a photograph and Raymond Rye,
musem specialist, replied in writing: "The object ... does resemble
the outline of a human skull ... We must do a microscopic study
of the outer rind to determine if it has the structure of bone."
The Smithsonian had been mailed granules, as requested, then
weeks later replied: "X-ray analysis of the material reveals it to be
quartz, the most abundant material of the earth's crust. So, although
the enigmatic object exposed in the boulder may resemble a hominid
skull, its mineral compostion is definitely not that of bone."
The fact is, "x-ray analysis" is NOTan appropriate test to identify
the presence or absence of cellular structure.
Later, a microcopic photo of granules removed from the specimen
revealed the presence of Haversian canals. (Actually, I knew they
did ahead of time because I had examined other granules
microscopically before sending them to the Smithsonian.)
Here's one of those microscopic photos of the cell structure:
> PETRIFIED HUMAN FEMUR
This is a petrified human femur still embedded in shale, a near-cousin
of coal. Portions of the bulb ends have broken off.
Since a femur measures approximately one-fourth of a human
being's height, the femur belonged to someone at least 7 1/2-foot
> PORTION OF A TIBIA (Fraudulently Tested)
This specimen was identified as a portion of a tibia by Krogman
and was subjected to one of the greatest cover-ups in the history
Andrew Macrae, then of Calgary University, performed fraudulent
testing when entrusted to examine its cellular structure and publish
the microscopic photos on his web page. Instead. he posted
microscopic photos of a rock or a concretion.
Macrae undoubtedly was advised and assisted by Paul Myers, then
of Temple University in Philadelphia and now at the University of
When charged with participating in the scam, Myers adamantly denied
it. Then, when I suggested officials of Temple University check their
long-distance telephone calls during the time that Macrae was
"testing" the specimen in the summer of 1996, Myers suddenly admitted
in the talk.origins news group that he had made many phone calls
to Calgary University in that time span but on other business.
It didn't end there. Myers later admitted in talk.origins that he had
FLOWN to Calgary one weekend during that same time period and had
spent time on campus. He said he didn't even have a chance to say
hello to Macrae, claiming he was there on other business.
Here are two additional photos of the portion of the petrified tibia,
(known as EC96-001 for Macrae's fraudulent testing purposes).
In addition, a scanning electronic microscope (SEM) was used
to examine the interior surface features of this specimen and then
compare it with cadaver bone at the same power magnification. These
are the photos at 2,000-times magnification:.
(They would look incredibly similiar if the grains were lying in
exactly the same direction.)
The left photo in the first URL below shows what Andrew Macrae
posted on his web page, claiming it was the cell structure of
C96-001 and nothing like bone should look like (in the right photo).
The next two photos show EC96-001's true cell structure.
It was just one of several fraudulent maneuvers perpetrated
by members of the Scientifiic Establishment over the past 21 1/2
years when the first specimen -- the large petrified skull -- was
Additionally, American Medical Laboratories performed calculus
analysis by crystallography on EC96-001 and determined that it
"consisted predominately of dried blood and protein."
That report follows:
> PETRIFIED MANDIBLES
Here's an assorment of miscellaneous specimens, primarily portions
of petrified mandibles (jaw bones), found between the same coal veins:
> PETRIFIED HUMAN LUNG
Here's a petrified human lung found between coal veins.
A lung is a soft organ and, as such, many contend it can never
petrify. However, in recent years it was established conclusively
that soft organs can indeed be subjected to the petrification process.
> PETRIFIED GALL BLADDER, WITH GALLSTONE
Here's a petrified gall bladder, and a CATscan revealed the presence
of a gall stone inside.
This is one of the specimens that also was tested at American
Medical Laboratories via calculus analysis by crystallography.
It revealed the specimen "consists of a few small pieces of dried
blood," adding that "none of the constituents normally found
in urinary calculi are present." (which comes as no surprise since
the specimen it tested is petrified).
That report follows:
> PETRIFIED HUMAN BRAIN
This is a petrified human brain (one hemisphere):
>> ANOTHER PETRIFIED BONE
Here's another petrified bone (a knee?):
> PAIR OF PETRIFIED FETUSES
Here are a pair of petrified fetuses.The large one, which has
been transformed to a coal-like substance, measures 6 1/2
inches in length.
> PETRIFIED DINOSAUR FOOT
Here's a portion of a dinosaur foot embedded in slate (or shale):
It should be noted that a third "toe" was later found embedded
in the slate where it would be expected to be. A video tape exists
showing the top cover of slate patiently being removed, revealing
the third "toe" just beneath the surface.
I should mention that the petrified femur and petrifed dinosaur
foot remain as you see them -- still embedded in slate (or shale)
-- the way they were steamshoveled from between coal veins.
They are somewhere in this photo, taken from approximately five
miles up, of scar-marked land that was strip-mined of its coal. But
those remarkable discoveries are still there if you'd like to search.
> HANDCRAFTED WOODEN TOOL
Here's a petrified handcrafted wooden handle which has been
transformed to anthracite. It also was found between the same
two coal veins.
> PETRIFIED BONE EMBEDDED IN SLATE
Here's a portion of petrified bone still embedded in slate,
confirming that it's older than the material in which it was encased.
Obviously, that material had to be fluid or in a fluidy state for
something to harden around it.
> GIANT CANINE TOOTH
Here's a giant canine tooth, found between the same coal veins:
(I accidentally dropped the giant tooth on the sidewalk in Hazleton,
Pa. -- too heavy for the paper bag --and the tip broke off but the
two pieces fit together almost perfectly.)
> PETRIFIED FETUS EMBEDDED IN SLATE
Here's another petrified fetus, this one still embedded in slatE
> PORTION OF GIANT PETRIFIED SCORPION
This is a portion of a giant prehistoric scorpion that was
identified as such by Wilton Krogman.
When the world famous bone expert examined this specimen
found between coal veins, he first turned to me and mentioned
that he had performed countless disections of scorpions in college.
"What you have, Mr. Conrad (never Ed), is a portion of a giant
prehistoric scorpion," he told me.
When discovered, the specimen was broken in two parts but they
fit together perfectly.
This particular specimen was the subject of another cover-up
by members of the Scientific Establishment -- the Department of
Entomology at Penn State University.
Penn State actually has batted 0-for-3 with its attempted
cover-ups of my specimens: First, its Department of Paleontology
(Roger Cuffey); Second, its Department of Anthropology (Robert
Eckardt). Third, its Department of Entomology (Charles Pitts).
> YERKES CONFIRMS SPECIMEN IS BONE
One of the specimens found between anthracite veins was positively
identified as petrified bone by the Yerkes Regional Primate Research
Center at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., which Krogman described
as "the most prestigious institution of its kind in the world."
Jeremy Dahl, one of its bone experts who examined and tested it,
even put it in writing and signed his name, also making a drawing
of the specimen that he had examined and tested..
Dahl definitely had examined the specimen's cell structure because
he had cut off a slice while it was is possession.
> PETRIFIED HOMINID MANDIBLE
Here's another petrified hominid jaw, the frontal portion. Inclusions
are embedded in it, possibly teeth or even part of the tongue.
> ANOTHER PETRIFIED SOFT ORGAN
Here's another soft organ that had petrified:
> PETRIFIED EGGS
Here are what appear to be petrified eggs. About eight of them
were found together more than 200 feet below the original
surface of the ground (on the side wall of a stripping pit).
Here's where they were found: (that's a bulldozer):
> PETRIFIED BONE EMBEDDED IN SLATE
Here are other specimens of petrified bone embedded in slate.
> SOMEWHAT SIMILIAR SPECIMENS
Here are two strange specimens, almost similiar. What makes them
so intriguing is that they were found between anthracite veins some
40 miles apart -- one near Shenandoah and the other near Wilkes-Barre.
> THREE INTRIGUING SPECIMENS
Here are three intriguing specimens:
(For the kids' sake, let's call 'em "The Three Tenors.)
> RAYMOND DART IMPRESSED
The late, great Raymond Dart, MD., relished the opportunity to examine
some of the specimens after Krogman had informed him about them.
This photo shows Dart holding what Krogman identified as a calvarium,
a human cranium with the eye sockets broken off.
Here's Raymond Dart's letter:
>> 28 October, 1983

Here's a photo of Raymond Dart with Ed Conrad (the photo was
taken by a house painter who obliged by decending a ladder
to do so.)
> DINOSAUR FOOT EMBEDDED IN SLATE
That man co-existed with dinosaurs -- back while anthracite was
being formed -- gains credence with these photos of a petrified
dinosaur foot embedded in slate.
> PECULAIR SPECIMEN
Another specimen of petrified bone embedded in slate:
The original Easter bunny? Then, again, it might be the head
of a petrified jackass. And, IF it is, it would be rather appropriate.
The Scientific Establishment -- led by its worldwide brood of
arrogant, defiant tenured fossils -- has long been treating
John Q. Public, and his kids, like a jackass, promoting fairy tales
and molesting truth.
Over the past 22 years, it has engaged in deceit, deception, collusion
and conspiracy -- of MONUMENTAL proportions -- and one of the
ringleaders has been the Smithsonian Institution.
And here's my final thought (six pictures should be worth
No question, members of the scientific establishment academia
-- professors, students and alumni -- have long been fearful
of me and my discoveries because of the dire consequences
they realized what truth would bring.
And well they should have been because now that time has
come. They're finally being put in their place and recognized
for the total disgrace to science that they have been.
NOW they're not just *afraid* of Ed Conrad. They're terrified.
