If they were cut into the stone by oxcarts, the poor animals would be lame from tripping into the sharp stone ditches. Not very efficient.

Same goes for chariot. A single animal would have to navigate the winding central raised path, thus wearing the central portion somewhat lower than the outer rims if it took centuries of travel to wear them grooves into the stone.

It is obvious they were made by something on an axle, as the pairs of grooves stay the same width from each other as they wind around.

Maybe it was a route from a quarry where heavy stone was transported with large teams of animals and men pulling and guiding.

For the life of me I can't tell if some of you ACTUALLY watched the video or not.. But, what "Water" or "cart" related reason can be used to account for the markings made alongside of this stone..



ON BOTH SIDES!

Also if you can look closely enough you'll see markings inside the walls of the trenches. It appears that what ever made these tracks had to have grinded up against the stone pretty darn hard.


And look at how clearly defined and not to mention, EXCEEDINGLY wide the "tracks" into the stone are. This is extremely mysterious indeed.

The same processes that made those tracks millions of years ago. Seem to be at work again on the right-hand side of your picture.

My bet is still that it is a phenomena closer to the moving stones in Death Valley.

The Grand Canyon was a big run off,I imagined this could be on a much smaller scale.
Not saying it is, just looking for a more plausible explanation before going to the more exotic.

If anything those marks on the right hand side indicate human involvement. Why just that one section of rock.. Why not all over or multiple, continuous straight lines through solid rock? How fast would the stones have to be moving to pierce through the rock so..

Precisely?

I honestly have no idea what it is but, the markings on the right hand side, and the pattern imbedded in the stone makes me think its man made. However without more evidence we can only hypothesize

Star for you. I don't have all the answers just proposing theories. But before that pathway was rock it was some type of soil. All the pictures I have seen posted seem to run downhill. That's why I compare the similarities with the ruts to mother natures current processes in death Valley. If it was soft mud running downhill the stones could very well dig a deeper rut than they do presently on the flat surface of death Valley.

Occam's Razor just isn't sharp enough for me. But, I did take the time to examine death valley. VERY INTERESTING to say the least my friend.

Do you have a more reliable source than a YouTube video?

Wow Mr. "just showed up",.. maybe you should interject a more thoughtful response than questioning the fact that this info was communicated through youtube...

I skimmed through the replies but didn't glimpse anyone posting this info.


The tracks have been made in Tufa Stone which is a very soft stone. It is cast in jewelry for that reason. It is a sort of limestone that can be easily carved, sanded, or ground down.

If you look at the video and the map presented with the paths and match it byzantine era settlements and cities those would have been likely routes leading from each.

The stone is so malleable that temples and monuments can be found carved into it all through that area.



In my opinion, those tracks are the result of multiple carts, wagons wearing a path to and from those settlements over time and have been smoothed by erosion. Some of the more distinct paths I imagine could be from military movements were several carts would have been built and packed exactly the same way and moved in formation. Some tracks may even be more recent.

The source of the video though it is new to me does give away Russian ties which Russian archeology claims from recent years have been very disappointing with being so misleading or outright lying like the billion year old fossilised screws.

We should always rule out the mundane before accepting the fanciful.

I read that too. You have to translate the article to get that bit.

Another suspicious thing about the claim - google gives exactly two returns on this (as of yesterday.)
The site linked here and this very thread at ATS.

This indicates (to me) that the claim is bogus because there should be much more than this if it was really some new discovery.

It certainly seems like a hoax / uninformed claim. There is no available research on the area of the supposed ''rock'' which looks a lot like baked mud.

Rock doesn't normally have that level of vegetation on it and clearly there is at least mud there.

I am posting now, so that I don't forget as to watch the video in the morning. I am pretty excited by this. However I am crawling in to bed.

My guess is tanks last century on old soft stone.

Interesting, but while the stone is 5.3 millions years old, why do the tracks have to be?

www.abovetopsecret.com...


Easy answer to that, people want something radical to be found so will assume things and not think of obvious or mundane answers first!

Why assume it may as simple as heavy traffic over the surface . For example there are worn stone steps in a city near to me, the stone will be millions of years old but the depression created in them by wear from people's shoes is less than a hundred!

So the claim in the OP that it is granite is bogus?

According to the site linked in the OP, yes.

Which makes one wonder about the agenda of the OP, right?

You're right. A YouTube video and a few conspiracy theory websites talking about this is totally enough to throw in the chips of history and praise the poster for putting such a tremendous discovery out into the universe.
