10 Bizarre Ancient Artifacts

This was a good read, so I though't I'd share it with you lovely people

"Humans were not even around 65 million years ago, never mind people who could work metal. So then how does science explain semi-ovoid metallic tubes dug out of 65-million-year-old Cretaceous chalk in France?"

Interesting stuff. Thanks for the link. Though I feel the need to point out that any article written for a UFO enthusiast website probably shouldn't be taken too seriously. Especially when they offer no cites to verify their claims. Good fun all the same.

My favorite bizarre artifact:

They varied in size from as small as a tennis ball to an astonishing 8 feet in diameter and weighing 16 tons! Although the great stone balls are clearly man-made, it is unknown who made them, for what purpose and, most puzzling, how they achieved such spherical precision.

Hmm, I wonder what such stones could possibly be used for...

Grooved Spheres
"the spheres consist of pyrite nodules of metamorphic origin and goethite nodules formed by the weathering of the pyrite. Since the nodules are metamorphic in origin and, thus, formed by metamorphism while the enclosing strata were buried under kilometers of rock, the grooves, if artificial, had to have been cut after they had collected from the pyrophyllite during quarrying operations. As a result, the grooves are far less than 2.8 billions old. The nodules are clearly of natural origin and less than 2.8 billion years old.

There are natural processes that can account for single, possibly multiple, grooves. However, until actual specimens can be acquired for study, it is rather pointless to speculate on such a matter. "


Droppa Stones...
"There is no scholarly accepted evidence that any such beings existed or any such landings occurred."


Antikythera Mechanism
"the mechanism is an astronomical computer or orrery used to predict the positions of heavenly bodies in the sky. This work proposes that the mechanism possessed 37 gears, of which 30 survive, and was used for prediction of the position of the sun, moon, and probably planets"


Ica Stones
"the stones to be a pathetic hoax, created for a gullible tourist trade."

Baghdad Battery

I could go on, but why bother......

Taking ufo.whipnet.org at face value is like reading The Weekly World News and believing it.... You'd have to be some kind of idiot.

he said she said

There are always those that choose and will debate everything that is available. The reality is of all things, we are told something and we choose to beleive one thing, or another. Both have sides of evidence and other choose to rebute it. My question is simple, if something is irrelevent then why spend the time to rebute it?

When looking at evidence, one must consider many things....

Where or from whom that evidence is coming from...
What agenda they might have in misinformation
What their credentials might be in the area in question.

Not all "evidence" is of equal value.

The 'evidence' presented by people such as those who'd like us to believe that 'aliens' made any of the 'artifacts' on the OT page isn't worth the electrons it takes to display it.

Why refute it?
An attempt to help quash, to help remove human stupidity, human gullibility.
