Occasionally, archaeologists come across finds which are "out of time" - that is, they do not fall in line with our current history books.

The Hammer was the one that always made my jaw drop.
That is just beyond weird.

Thank you for this very interesting and affirming that we are not what the conventional historians would have us all believe. I read a great book (Out of place objects?) about 15years ago that talked about this subject and one that sticks out is the gold hinged locket that was found in an Austrian coalmine inside a lump of coal, I think it was 189?ish. From a hazy memory I think it was lost by the local museum? Hmmmmmmm

Wow the dinosaurs one was amazing since the statues were made around 200 and 800bc yet dinosaurs apparently were wiped out 65 million years ago.

I remember reading a couple of posts on here once about odd things found in rocks. I've always wondered how stuff got there very bizzare indeed. Perhaps there was something about long before us that got completely wiped out except a few artifacts found in stones.

Thats just weird....can anyone debunk these finds or give plausable explanations?

Great info, seen something similar before, but for top 10, none of them were in the last one though, except the planes. I liked the hammer/pick in the sandstone 380-400 myo?!


Something similar here, Ed Conrad, found humanoid bone, teeth and soft organs petrified into rock and coal. Concludes that Human(oid)s must have existed 280 million years ago.

Includes alot of haste with the smithsonian institue.

There are a few more that I have found from different people, claiming to have found bone (femur I think it was) in a rock quarry wall aswell as some other teeth, I'll look them up.

Can we not bask in possibilities this may present? why does it have to be debunked or for that matter, even a plausible explanation?

Hello, Lethil -- yes, these have been discussed here on ATS many a time, and old-timers can sort of "recite the chorus" with me.

#1 - there are thousands of these in the museums of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. I've seen them in the museums. Native people (who created them) and archaeologists say that these are stylized birds and insects. That answer is right in line with the type of art they make, and these "airplanes" are selected pieces with the photo taken from one angle that makes them look more like airplanes.

#2 - Hoax by a Russian. They're lightbulb parts: www.abovetopsecret.com...

#3 - Piri Reis is genuine, but the "information from the Imperial Library of Constantinople from information he found which dated back to 4000 BC" is a misstatement. He got it from the Imperial Library, yes. Some of the manuscript copies are of things created in 400 BC (not 4,000 BC). Partly based on one of Christopher Columbus' maps:
en.wikipedia.org...

#4 - ...a real giggle. I work in a museum paleontology lab, and can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that the statement " (all of varied but known dinosaur species) " is hysterically funny and just plain wrong. They DO look like cartoon drawings of dinosaurs, but no dino ever looked like those!

Hoax.

#5 - real. Modern (1800's) concretion (www.priweb.org...) In places like caves, these can form very fast... just visit any local show cave and you can see things like bats that have died and are quickly being surrounded by stone (there's one at Cave Without a Name that died in the 1980's on top of a stalagmite and it's almost completly wrapped in stone.

Ed is a well-known figure who doesn't know anything about anatomy. Those are what he THINKS looks like body parts.

Hie thyself off and have a look at what the real bone and real body parts look like. I'll warn you, though -- Ed doesn't study comparative anatomy and human anatomy books, so be prepared for some real mind-boggling "it doesn't look ANYTHING like that" experiences with his concretions.

I've often thought how an Archaeological site set up like Talk origins would be so useful. That site lists a claim then provides the actual information with links and references - would be so useful. Especially for the bombardment of the same items over and over again.

Thank you for the link to that site. It looks quite interesting. I think the maps are compelling since who knew what Antarctica looked like without its ice sheets?

Well, we know, and it doesn't look like what's shown on the Piri Reis map.

I have to say I agree with you on all but point 1. I thought these artifacts were ancient? Or at least, pre-airplane, anyway, how could we have spoken to the makers if so?

Also, if those are "birds" they are either terrible artists or very, very abstract.

It was my understanding that some of those "aircraft" were representations of flying fish. At least those that came out of northern Columbia.

Well, the hammer isnt that big of a shock, as they have recently discovered that neanderthal man was quite adept at using tools (and actually had a more advanced brain than modern day humans)

It seems pretty hasty to dismiss it on that alone.



You don't see any resemblance to a stegosaurus? Seriously? You think it's just coincidence that it shares very similar features?
