    I was told by the university and a museum that they were just rocks. I said I know this but what is under the rocks is what I’m seeing. So after some hard work of removing the limestone now I wander what they will see. The last photo is a bird nest with birds. I was told that is was nothing more than coral fossils. Tell me you can see the birds. They say that Kentucky doesn’t have any dinasours? I’m no fossil professional but I do play one at home in my tool shed. Found on a hillside in Bullitt county, Kentucky. #fossil

    • That’s a sedimentary rock formation, not a fossil

    • what is it forming around?

    • It’s not necessarily forming around something but a large formation of sedimentary rock

    • I’m not sure about that. did you look at the other pictures. I got birds with feathers. I had a bunch of birds but I thought they were chucks of mud. turns out I was crushing bird skulls. I mean so of this stuff is more than rocks. the one rock has a bone sticking out of the back of its neck and have the face broken off exposing teeth and optic nerves. I have a mastadon eyes. it’s really weird. I have a piece of property in Kew and it has coral fossils and fossilized birds everywhere. I’m finding fragments and rock clusters that are magnetic. plus on Google maps it’s shows that my land has a pond when you look at it on the terrain but on satililite view it’s dry land. that’s what provoked me to investigate. why would show a round pond when there is no water?

    • I think that my hill was hit by a meteorite and the rest of the hill has filled in the crater over time. I found a couple of rocks that look to have some of the magnitite and little traces of something green scatter around

    • I looked at your posts, they are all sedimentary rocks. I know you want to find fossils and I get that but that doesn’t mean everything you find is something incredible or rare. Finding a fossil with optic nerves would be as rare as shuffling a deck of cards and then correctly guessing the order the cards are in. It’s incredibly rare that even soft tissue like skin fossilizes. Also, it would make no sense to find a lot of corals and birds in the same place. As for the pond I don’t know maybe it’s an old photo but I’m not a satellite expert. Unfortunately, just because you want something to be a fossil doesn’t always mean that it is.

    • I’m not disagreeing with you. I’m well aware that they are rocks. but if you see these rocks and hold them you would see what I’m seeing.

    • something has turned animals into sedimentary rocks and I’m gonna prove it somehow. I’m tired of hearing it’s very rare. I’m aware of that. it seems strange that people don’t take the time to investigate into

    • the pond is a live view.

    • maps show images of the terrain and live images of the area. the view that shows hills, creeks, oceans, mountains etc. that’s what is showing up as a pond. the actual view of what the area looks like shows it to be land.

    • ordinary people like me see this kind of stuff everyday. we ate told that’s its rock because that what it is. but that not what they use to be. I’m not gonna be told by someone who looks at something for two seconds tell me what I’m seeing after looking at it for days. I will find someone who is willing to help. I need someone with an open mind who can think outside the box.

    • As I said: I’m not a satellite expert, I wouldn’t know. Yes fossils are technically rocks, the living bone and tissue is replaced by minerals. However, fossils have distinct shapes, patterns, and details that identify themselves. Your rocks have no distinct pattern, shape, or detail that suggests they were part of living things. Finding a fossil is like the lottery, odds are you won’t win but if you scratch off a ton you just might hit the jackpot. But you can’t stare at the numbers on a losing ticket and hope they change into a winner. If you find a rock that turns out to not be a fossil, you need to accept that and move on or else you’ll never find potential fossils that are still out there waiting to be found. But if you aren’t willing to accept other people’s opinions on your posts, why even bother posting?

    • The earth is a fascinating place. Try looking up a map of different time periods and your location to see how time has changed the land ( is probably the best resource for that that I’ve found) and then I’d suggest reading up on metamorphic rock and understand that we’re all only here to help. @a-tribolite is extremely knowledgeable and kind with their words. Keep your eyes open and you’ll learn as you grow with the hobby! Best of luck

    • @a-trilobite * oops! Lol
