More On Alvis Delk's Fake Rock He Found in Glen Rose and Sold to Carl Baugh

Wrote about this the other day when I saw what most certainly was a PR fluff piece in the Weatherford paper. . The Stones and Bones blog has some comments about WHY it's a fake and the cat scans at the Glen Rose Medical Center can't substitute for a professional scientific, DIRECT examination.

Baugh told the Mineral Wells Index that, “The compression lines, the density features, do show, and there is no way to fake that,” he said. “It is possible to carve a track in limestone. But there is no way to compress the material in the rock under the track. That is absolutely impossible. That’s why the CAT scans are so important.”

First of all, a medical CAT scan uses a lower energy beam than could be useful on a sandy limestone. That is why real paleontologists use industrial facilities. The University of Houston has a laboratory that has many years of experience with just this type of analysis. This points to the next problem; a medical facility is not staffed by paleontologists or geophysicists. Baugh has no accredited degrees either. He wouldn't know "compression lines" from his own butt crack. However, you don't even need more than the photograph from the Mineral Wells Index, which was much higher resolution than from Baugh's website, to see that this is object is a fake.

You might find this amusing, but here we are 6 years later to the day and somebody read this piece and then visited my site to read about Carl Baugh's fakes.
