  PART I of this Article

“When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”"I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” …..Luke19

In my last article, I looked at the evidence that had been locked in stone that proved that what we’d been taught about the ages of men and animals on earth had been at best inaccurate. In another recent s8int.com article, it was alleged that petrified human giants had been discovered in the Grand Canyon near the end of the 19th century.

I also thought of Ed Conrad, a gentleman who has been battling the Atheists and materialists for years over his supposed human and animal petrified finds in Pennsylvania coal mines. Some of his discoveries, including a giant, petrified human skull have been featured in the pages of s8int.com.

In this second part of The Stones Cry Out I took another look back in time through the pages of old newspapers and magazines to see if they reveal anything about other alleged “impossible” petrified finds in coal or other supposedly millions of years old formations.

What we found surprised even us, including a cave found with large petrified men along with drawings of men battling gigantic animals, and yes we found other stories about petrified giants.

We can only share a small fraction of all we found here but its clear that there is much that has been forgotten.

The difference between fossilized and petrified?

“It can be a little confusing. A fossil is any evidence of life that has been preserved in rock. So fossils include not just organisms themselves, but also the burrows, marks and footprints they left behind. Fossilization is the name for a number of processes that produce fossils. One of those processes is mineral replacement.

This is common in sedimentary and some metamorphic rocks, where a mineral grain may be replaced by material with a different composition, bur still preserving the original shape. When a fossil organism is subjected to mineral replacement, it is said to be petrified.

For example, petrified wood may be replaced with chalcedony, or shells replaced with pyrite. This means that out of all fossils, only the creature itself could be fossilized by petrification. And not all fossil organisms are petrified. Some are preserved as carbonized films, or preserved unchanged like recent fossil shells, or fixed in amber like fossil insects.

Scientists don’t use the word “petrified” much. What we call petrified wood, they’d rather call fossil wood. But “petrified” has a nice sound and I like to hear it. It sounds right for a fossil of something familiar that looks lifelike (like a tree trunk)…..About.com
