Fossilized Head found by Christer in Sweden. Click and drag photo to resize.
Christer found this fossilized head of a man a few years ago in Sweden near Gothenburg. Here at s8int.com, it clearly appears to us to be the head of a man, with very recognizable features, "immortallized" into stone which its discover believes is flint.
This would pose a problem for current evolutionary and geoligical theories since flint (or any rock for that matter) was supposedly formed tens of millions of years before man evolved.
Of course, it poses no problem for the Bible's version of the creation of man and the universe. In fact, flint according to science is formed from the bodies of billions of little animals and it being sedimentary rock required large quantities of water for its formation. Hmmmm
|Gothenburg. On the west coast of Sweden.|
"I found it (the fossil) myself on the Swedish westcoast near Gothenburg, in the year 2000, so I΄m the owner of it. The length is about 25 cm and I'm sure its made of flint.
I looked at fragments of it in a binocular microscope at 60X to 80X magnification and am going to receive pictures of the structure soon.
I hope to be able to arrange a CT-scan but im not sure if that's possible.
This flint stone cant give the impression of being anything else but a detailed human head. This is extraordinary because we (humans) were more or less supposed to be apes five million years ago, according to the theory of evolution.
Flint stones were developed during the Cretaceous period 65-140 million years ago.(According to current geological theories).

Flint only occurs naturally in the southwest part of Sweden. This find is from the Swedish west coast and has likely been ice-bound in drifting icebergs 12000-13000 years ago in the latest iceage.
Flint have also been used as ballast in cargo ships and has been spread from harbour to harbour. The only thing that is sure is that the stone has not taken form at the location where I found it.
This evidence challenging the standard views on the human evolution!
..."Chalk layers are important for another reason too. Within them lies one of the most useful rocks humans have ever found - flint. Flint is made of minute crystals of silica, far too small for the eye to see. Silica is an exceptionally hard mineral and when it forms in such small crystals it has a unique character when struck - it breaks with a shell shaped 'conchoidal' fracture. The edges of the fractured flint are razor sharp and can easily cut meat. An added bonus is flint takes much longer to blunt than steel .."
The formation of flint is quite complicated. Basically the silica comes from the hard parts of sea creatures such as sponges. When sponges die, they leave behind tiny silica fragments which become ingrained in the chalk. Over time and through complex chemical processes, the silica fragments dissolve, are transported, and then are deposited to form flint nodules.
Today, these nodules are arranged in thin black bands within the chalk. If you go down onto the shore at Eastbourne, (for example) you'll see the beach nearest the cliffs are made up of flints of various shapes and sizes, dumped there as the chalk cliffs have eroded away". ..BBC Education
Replacement fossils can also be found within flints. When the calcium-shelled animal died and settled to the sea floor, silica solution from the calcareous ooze leaked into the shell. Inside the calcite shell, it replaced the body of the creature, forming a silica model in its image.
At the same time, the shell of the organism could have have acted as a nucleus for the formation of a flint nodule around. In this case, the shell will be both surrounded by flint, and enclose a flint replacement fossil.

Ultimately, the calcareous shell surrounding the original organism will disintegrate; but it may already be enclosed and protected by a flint nodule that formed around it. Thus, the nodule with contain a loose fossil within, which may rattle if shaken and easily falls out whole when the flint is broken.
In areas of fossiliferous chalk, flint-filled fields are rich hunting grounds for replacement fossil echinoids ..

Chert and flint form from dissolved silica. Chert often forms in deep seawater, from the precipitation of the siliceous skeletons of microscopic organisms, such as diatoms. This can result in massive beds of chert. Both flint and chert can also form from the microscopic deposition of silica in place of calcium carbonate when groundwater dissolves the calcium carbonate in limestone rock, so you often find nodules or small flint or chert nodules in limestone layers. This is also the material that replaces dead organic material to form petrified wood.
