Anomalous artifacts on earth. Have any of these been falsified?



By Stephen Wagner, About.com Guide


The Bible tells us that God created Adam and Eve just a few thousand years ago, by some fundamentalist interpretations. Science informs us that this is mere fiction and that man is a few million years old, and that civilization just tens of thousands of years old. Could it be, however, that conventional science is just as mistaken as the Bible stories? There is a great deal of archeological evidence that the history of life on earth might be far different than what current geological and anthropological texts tell us. Consider these astonishing finds:

I can think of an easy way to make a sphere stone. Get a piece of rope - And wrap it around many many times to ensure the roundness of the stone. If the rope is the same length each time you can smooth the stone to be very accurate. Of course there could be other ways.

The little plane looking thing could easily be an ancient civilization that carved out some things that could potentially fly. To think modern planes were only imagined in the past few centuries says little of our imagination and respect for our ancestors.

The battery I think could work for sure. Why would a civilization not be able to figure this out? (Perhaps the materials 'could' be made into a battery but we don't know if they used it as such ... maybe there was another use for it.)

If the other 'dating' methods were accurate for the metal spheres and such, that would indeed be interesting. But I never heard of any of the other 'artifacts'.

I'll let someone else answer as I just know a small bit about the three I mentioned.
Since the earth had tectonic plates and oceans only around 200 million years after it's formation much earlier then previously thought. Were there civilizations placed here in the distant past? And, are they contemporary with alleged structures found on the moon?  In those days the moon would practically take up the entire sky  because it was a lot closer and gave rise to humongous tidal action.
Aren't you the same guy that posted the conspiracy about the moon photo?  : P

I like those, "How often do you beat your wife questions"

 

Anyway, it is all over Youtube and unfortunately in few instances critically reviewed.

Anomalies are discovered periodically, but often can not rewrite history due to their small population. However these investigators are certainly ambitious
Researchers: Ancient human remains found in Israel
 
By DANIEL ESTRIN, Associated Press – Mon Dec 27, 6:13 pm ET
JERUSALEM – 
Israeli archaeologists said Monday they may have found the earliest evidence yet for the existence of modern man, and if so, it could upset theories of the origin of humans.
A Tel Aviv University team excavating a cave in central Israel said teeth found in the cave are about 400,000 years old and resemble those of other remains of modern man, known scientifically as Homo sapiens, found in Israel. The earliest Homo sapiens remains found until now are half as old.

"It's very exciting to come to this conclusion," said archaeologist Avi Gopher, whose team examined the teeth with X-rays and CT scans and dated them according to the layers of earth where they were found.
He stressed that further research is needed to solidify the claim. If it does, he says, "this changes the whole picture of evolution."

The accepted scientific theory is that Homo sapiens originated in Africa and migrated out of the continent. Gopher said if the remains are definitively linked to modern human's ancestors, it could mean that modern man in fact originated in what is now Israel.
Sir Paul Mellars, a prehistory expert at Cambridge University, said the study is reputable, and the find is "important" because remains from that critical time period are scarce, but it is premature to say the remains are human.
"Based on the evidence they've cited, it's a very tenuous and frankly rather remote possibility," Mellars said. He said the remains are more likely related to modern man's ancient relatives, the Neanderthals.
According to today's accepted scientific theories, modern humans and Neanderthals stemmed from a common ancestor who lived in Africa about 700,000 years ago. One group of descendants migrated to Europe and developed into Neanderthals, later becoming extinct. Another group stayed in Africa and evolved into Homo sapiens — modern humans.

Teeth are often unreliable indicators of origin, and analyses of skull remains would more definitively identify the species found in the Israeli cave, Mellars said.
Gopher, the Israeli archaeologist, said he is confident his team will find skulls and bones as they continue their dig.
The prehistoric Qesem cave was discovered in 2000, and excavations began in 2004. Researchers Gopher, Ran Barkai and Israel Hershkowitz published their study in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
The giant stone balls are pretty unremarkable.

Well said.

Usually anomalies aren't considered because they constitute a small population and may constitute a dating error and may be subject to strata displacement which isn't all that atypical.

Anomalies found in coal deposits and solid stone are harder to explain.

For instances metal objects and spark plug looking devices.

 

 

And on the 'Planet of the Apes', long after man's demise, the monkeys had no idea how those spinning talking rings operated.

What you're describing is ancient technological know-how.  Ancient cultures had MUCH more technical ability than we give them credit for.  For example, did you know that the first steam engine was built in ancient Rome in the 1st century AD?  Da Vinci conceived of an airplane centuries before one was ever built.  The building of the pyramids was a massive engineering feat.

 

Ancient civilizations had technologies that were lost over the centuries and that we've only just re-discovered in the past 200 years or so.  So it's most likely that ancient humans are responsible for all the things you mentioned, simply by virtue of them being intelligent and inventive people.  Remember, if not for the Dark Ages holding back scientific progress for around 800 years, we'd be a lot further along than we are now.  Hell, we'd have had the Internet, cell phones, etc. sometime around 1200 AD!  So I have no doubt that those people could build a sphere or conceive of a battery.

Strong points!.

 

Cro-magnon had bigger brains and was taller. facially appear to be noble  gracial. There is a lost city found off the Indian coast that goes back to the Wurm glaciation. There is evidence of trans-atlantic travel by certain tool industries, moustrian etc. There is a sunken city off the coast of Cuba in 2000 ft of water. Puma Punku may be similarly dated according to some authorities.

Your are correct Solutrean.

"Cro-magnon...was us, the label is not really used anymore."

 

I believe Hominids alive during the Mega fuana, perished with the Mega fuana.

 

Some believe an asteroid did it.

 

There appears to be several hominids contemporary with Cro-magnon.

 

Haploids that were present 9000 years ago in Europe appear to have vanished, and the population completely replaced.

 

 

 

Large stone balls are nothing strange, it happens in rocks all the time. These balls are known as concretions, they can be up to several meters across. They form often around fossils quite often, the fossil dissolves and cements the rock around it.

 

The smaller stone ball which dated to 2.8 billion years to me just indicates that the stone was old, perhaps 2.8 billion years old, and it was carved out of that. The blue metalic colour with white flecks reminds me of this http://www.astro.virginia.edu/class/oconnell/astr121/im/iron-meteor... iron meteorite, which of course if found it wouldn't be surprising if a culture made an artifact  out of it...

 

Another option to how the "stitched balls" could have formed a concretion forming in the rock in a very thin layer of a different type of stone, a thin layer could be deposited by a major flood event or volcanic eruption which once the concretion has formed looks as if it is a stitched ball.


The images aren't high enough resolution for me to be able to conclude what the actual cause was.

 

The 65 million year old metal tubes are not that uncommon in rocks, I have seen them in several locations. It is simply the precipitation of iron around worm tubes or other trace fossils. A real test if these are human made or not would be to measure the manganese content, Mn is closely associated with iron in marine sediments. The nail mentioned in the text will just be a smaller of the same thing.

 

The spark plug is shown in this video along with several other objects not mentioned.
