GIANT GRANITE SPHERES OF COSTA RICA. These monolithic near-perfect spheres were discovered in the Diquis Delta, near the Pacific coast of southern Costa Rica. They have also been found around the southern cities of Palmar, Sur, Buenos Aires and Golfito and in the province of Guanacaste.
Most of them have been dated between 800 and 1200 B.C.E. Their size is from an inch to 8 feet in diameter. Mostly made of a hard stone - granodiorite. Three large and aligned spheres point to Easter Island.
The spheres are often grouped in geometric patterns such as triangles, rectangles or straight lines. At least 186 spheres have been decumented. How many more of them exist? No local source for the granite exists and no stone-working tools have been found in the vicinity of the spheres. These masterpieces are mirror-smooth and geometrically perfect. The maximum circumference error in a 6-foot, 7-inch diametre sphere in only 0.5 inch, or 0.2%.
The outstanding stone-carving skills and mathematical knowledge were necessary for creation of such spheres. Unfinished spheres were never found. Did the Diquis culture possess such skills to produce them? As the ancient Costa Ricans had no written language, a chance to unearth any written records of just how they made the spheres is...none.
Many spheres were discovered in the jungle and question remains: who and how made them and for what purpose? Who was responsible for their transport from quarries located 50 miles away?
According to Mr. SHERBAN, many reputed scientists have stepped up efforts to decipher the code behind the disc's signs. The work done behind the disk is massive and so at early stages of his research Anatoliy SHERBAN had to conform to the main “Phaistos decipherment principles” set forth by celebrated science personalities. The conventional view on the disc’s language was that the text could not possibly be carved in Greek. However in the course of the research Anatoliy SHERBAN added more and more evidences of its Greek origin. The writing is most definitely a piece of Bronze Age Greek hieroglyphics. The cryptanalyst has developed his unique decoding method, which proved very effective.
The Phaistos Disc is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age (2nd millennium BC). It is about 15 cm in diameter and covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. This unique object is now on display at the archaeological museum of Heraklion in Crete, Greece. A code which is still undecipherd.
