This post is an old creationism example that humans lived at the same
time as dinosaurs. To actually see the prints, you realize that any
being could have made them, two footed or four footed. But to say that
it was a girl that made them, is a new one on me. I am extremely
interested to find out the sex of an individual just by their foot
prints. From what I understand, if you had available to you all the
bones of the human body, the only one that would tell you the sex, would
be the pelvis. There seems to be some missing info in your post to let
us know how the sex of the individual was determined in the footprints.
