pic o’ the day: fossilized fairy

This genuine antique fossilized fairy from the collection of Takeshi Yamada is the kind of thing that throws Pharyngula and his fellow godless Darwinian crusaders into a frenzy. No doubt the heirs of Arthur Conan Doyle will be purchasing this irrefutable proof of the ancient existence of fairies, should it ever appear at Christie’s or Sotheby’s.

  1. I can digg it (in fact, I just did). In this Baptist’s humble opinion, it’s clever and funny. But then I may be an unusual Baptist – evolution is the way to go. It just makes sense.

  2. :)) That is cool! I also had a pic with a so-called mumy of a sea nymph. :)) They are terrible, these pic-makers junkies! :)

  3. Philipa, I think it has been REDUCED to fairy dust. 7news, if you click on the pic it’ll take you to this guy’s whole catalogue of weird creatures that he’s put together. Fiji mermaids and the whole deal. anomalous, thanks for the Digg. FFE, Quentin Crisp ascended directly into God’s kitchen garden, was taken up bodily from the Earth the way he always wanted it.

  4. Actually, squids are what the fairies evolved into, hence the overwhelming supernatural attractiveness of the entire tentacular kingdom. You could say rather that Pharyngula was looking for this, but just didn’t know it.

  5. How cool is that picture, well found friend.

    Though might I point out that Faeries are inface pure energy. I have never heard the theory that faeries evolved into squids. Good picture though.

  6. Being of Irish decent, I love fairy lore….but its these people who try to “prove” it with lies and false evidence that take the magic out of it.

  7. G Eagle is quite correct, and in that sense the Cascadian Tree Octopus is the closest thing the world has to a living fairy fossil. Mind you, there are those who say there are a lot right here on Denman street.

  11. Well to say its impossible, is small minded in my eyes. We are a creation which can do many things, to discover another creation is amazing. If you allow yourself to be shallow, you wont experience much or gain much knolledge in life. :)

  14. Fairies are real the people that dont believe in fairies are jerks and frauds you suck too we have fairies in our woods theres either 4 or 5 BELIEVE IN FAIRIES

  15. this picture is so cool. fairies have always facinated me but i just thought the were a myth like unicorns hahaha! but now i know that they are actually real, great work in finding this!!!!!!!

  16. GO RAINCOASTER!! It is so rare these days to find people and websites who genuinely believe in fairies, and websites like this just push any doubts from my mind that I’ve ever had. :)

    Much Love x

  17. That looks totally fake!Lying bastards.Like raincoaster said,it looks like a carving.Don’t get me wrong,I do believe in fairys(because of my past sightings).Besides,fairys are spirits and do not have skeletons. Let me know then anyone finds a fossilized skeleton of an “angel”!

  18. What are you talking about? Of course it’s real; it’s a fossil, for god’s sake! It’s in an actual rock! That proves that fairies have existed for eons virtually unchanged, like the coelocanth.
