About four years ago, Waupaca resident Bill Mielke stumbled upon some startling information while browsing the Web. After digging deeper, Mielke showed the material to his son-in-law, who was an atheist.
"We watched a few videos and then gave them to him and he says, 'I never heard anything about this before,'" Mielke recalls. "And he completely did a flip-around and I saw the value in this stuff."
What Mielke found was government-recognized artifacts that he believes seriously challenge evolution by depicting dinosaurs and humans living side-by-side.
Mielke said Charles Hapgood, a university professor, found artifacts at Acambaro in Mexico and thought, "this has got to be fake." In turn, he asked crime drama writer Earl Stanley Gardner to investigate. In turn, he wrote a book on their authenticity.
"They've looked at fossils — let's say a fish that was supposed to be around before dinosaurs — when you look at that DNA and the way it's designed, they are not primitive creatures and they are highly developed," Mielke said. "There was a trilobite in a busted piece of rock with a sandal print above it. On the sandal print, it showed the sandal stepped on the trilobite and its eye is so high-tech, it is not just a primitive life form."
Oh, and don't forget to throw in a little Kent ("Don't Bend Over to Pick Up the Soap") Hovind and a more than usually mangled quote mine:
With a hefty pile of books in his clutches, Mielke shuffles through them to find a statement from a private group that offers $250,000 to anyone who can provide evidence of transitional life forms and missing links. A few sheets deeper, he reaches in for statements from Nobel prize winners.
"Even Nobel Prize winners are saying this is a big joke," he said. "There's a huge number of people out there saying this thing is a dead horse." As he reads one biologist's statement, "We cannot accept that on a psychological ground and for personal reasons, therefore we choose to believe in the impossible — that life arose spontaneously by chance."
"Because this is becoming so popular now, people are manufacturing copies of these artifacts," he said. "So you can buy these, and that's where a lot of this stuff came from."
