THE WORLD'S 10 MOST AMAZING ARTIFACTS THAT REMAIN UNEXPLAINED
The word "artifact" comes from the Latin phrase art factum. There are lots of archeological artifacts that prove that the past of the Earth could be much more different than we used to believe. Below are some of these puzzling artifacts:
№1. The Grooved Spheres
Over the past few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres. The origin of the spheres is unknown. They are approximately one inch in diameter. Two types of spheres were found: the first one is made of solid bluish metal with white spots, the second one is hollowed out and filled with a spongy white substance. Surprisingly, each found sphere belongs to the Precambrian period, i.e. 2.8 billion years old! It remains unknown who made them and for what purpose.
№2. The Dropa Stones
In 1938 an archeological expedition made a surprising discovery in the caves of the Bayan-Kara-Ula mountains (China). Hundreds of stone disks were found on the cave floor. Each stone, approximately nine inches in diameter, had a cut out circle in the center and also they were engraved with spiral grooves. The spiral grooves were composed of tiny hieroglyphics that showed the incredible story of spaceships from some distant world that had crash-landed in the mountains. Those ships were run by the people who called themselves Dropa and their remains were found in the cave.
№3. The Ica Stones
In 1930 a local farmer gave a strange stone to Dr. Javier Kabrela. Then, Javier Kabrela collected more than 1,100 of such stones known as the Ica Stones. The stones are engraved. The most astonishing etchings clearly depict dinosaurs. While skeptics consider the Ica Stones a hoax, their authenticity has not yet been neither proved nor disproved.
№4. The Antikythera Mechanism
Divers raised a lot of marble and bronze statues from a wreck. There was a strange mechanism composed of a number of wheels among the findings. Writing on the box indicates that it was made in 80 BC. However such a complex device could not exist until 1575! It is still unknown who constructed this amazing tool 2,000 years ago.
№5. The Baghdad Battery
This puzzling thing was found in the ruins of the Parthian village, existed roughly between 248 BC and 226 AD. The device consisted of a 5-1/2 inch clay vessel. A copper cylinder was found inside, with an oxidized iron rod inside the cylinder. Experts concluded that the device only needed to be filled with acid or alkaline liquid to produce an electrical charge. But the battery technology was invented only in 1800!
№6. The Coso Artifact
A rock was found in the mountains of California in 1961, and an object made of white porcelain was found inside. There was shiny metal in the center. X-rays revealed a tiny spring in the end, that looked like a spark plug. The artifact itself was defined by experts as a spark plug dated the 1920's. Unfortunately, the Coso Artifact was lost and can not be fully researched. Is there a reasonable explanation of the artifact? How could the spark plug be in the 500 000-year-old rock?
№7. Ancient Model Aircraft
There are artifacts belonging to ancient Egyptian and Central American cultures that are surprisingly similar to modern aircrafts. The Egyptian artifact, found in 1898, is a six-inch wooden object that looks like a model airplane, with fuselage, wings and tail. Experts believe that this object is so aerodynamic that it actually can glide. The small object found in Central America is made of gold and could easily be considered a model glider, or even a space shuttle.
№8. Giant Stone Balls of Costa Rica
In the 1930's workers encountered incredible objects in Costa Rica: a number of stone balls. Many of them had a perfect spherical form. They ranged in size from as small as a tennis ball to a huge 8 feet in diameter sphere that weighed 16 tons! No one knows who made them, for what purpose, and the most puzzling question: how such an ideal spherical form could be made.
№9. Impossible Fossils
A fossil of a human hand print was found in limestone (age about 110 million years). A fossil of a human finger was found in the Canadian Arctic that is also dated 100-110 million years old. A fossil trace of a sandal was found near Delta, Utah in schistose clay, estimated at 300-600 million years old.
№10. Out-of-Place Metal Objects
People did not exist 65 million years ago. So how can science explain the semi-ovoid metallic tubes dug out of the Cretaceous Cretaceous (age 65 million years) in France? In 1885 a piece of coal was cracked, and a metal cube was found inside that obviously seemed to be man-made. In 1912 workers at an electric plant broke a large piece of coal, and iron powder poured out. Nails were found in a sandstone block from the Mesozoic Era. And there are many, many more such artifacts.
What conclusions can we draw from the above? Here are some ideas:
Sentient beings existed much, much earlier than we could imagine.
Some kind of sentient beings and civilizations existed on the Earth much earlier than history reports.
