Boy I hope I made sense!!!
You made a lot of sense, but it's like a fart in a hurricane around here lately. The weaker the source, the stronger the flags.
The first three on the Pleistocene list are typical of these sites:
1/ Aluminium Wedge of Aiud.
A genuine object with no chain of evidence. The alleged
analysis exists only the same sites as usual....s8int, Hindu and Creationist websites. That it was found where these sites claim it was found is
simple hearsay. The object remains undisplayed at an 'unknown location.'
2/ The Stone Spheres of Costa Rica ( ATS Thread)
are not Ooparts at all. They date to
around the 6th Century.
3/ Acambaro dinosaur figurines '7,000 to 12,000 years old' are blatant hoaxes from the 20th Century. All survived intact, with no patina, no dirt,
no wear and tear.
The top three in the Pliocene Era are similarly shaky.
1/ Only seems to exist in relation to the OP linked site.
2/ A skull found at La Denise, France. Again, the claims are looped back to the same sites. Sir Arthur Keith gets roped in (eccentric at the very
least), but there's still no evidence that the skull exists or that if it was found it looked like modern man.
3/ 'cut animal bones found in Astian strata' is pretty interesting. Google 'Astian strata' and see how many of the same sites reference each other
and harvest the same claims. I haven't looked very hard, but can't find anything about these alleged bones.
If anyone can post more details on these examples I'd appreciate it.
