Response Article
This article (Sandal footprints have been found associated with trilobites (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CC102:

Apparent human shoe prints were found in a slab with obvious trilobite fossils in 1968, by William J. Meister, at Antelope Springs, forty-three miles northwest of Delta, Utah. The heel of one print was worn just as shoe heels wear today.


CreationWiki response: A close inspection of the print could test the claim that the heel is just the result of a crack, but there are other problems with it. The big flaw with this print is that while it looks impressive, it is isolated. There are seven other prints in the area but only this one has been made available. A study of those would be required to test this find. The lack of any pictures showing the complete set or even other individual prints makes defending this impossible. Further study of the prints is needed and recommended.
