The hinged pin and the intricate workmanship makes me think that this is a brooch of some kind.


That was my immediate assumption
Leastways, a piece of jewellery or other adornment that would normally be associated with a woman, hence why it was pictured, given the story line.

Metal in the stone age? 6000 yrs ago? hhmmmmm.... FINALLY! Proof of God! It's what He used to cut Adam open and take his rib. He also sewed him back up with it afterwards. DUH!!!! Don't ask me how. He works in mysterious ways. It's clear as day that this is what it is though. Don't agree? Sucks to be one of you unfaithful fools!

It is clearly a tool for making buckskin rubbers.

Some cave guy had a crush on the fashion accessory guy at the cave mall and bought this fabulous cloak pin from him.

It's a spring loaded chopper. You drive the spike into a stump, and then the knife blade is spring loaded. So as you pass the green onions or whatever through it, you pound down and chop it.
Its probably strong enough to do chicken and rabbit as well.

AHhhh, those two back to back made my day

This looks quite similar to me


The supposed time difference between the two is substantial as this fibula dates from the 1st century AD. I don't really see this dating to the neolithic. According to wikipedia there is no evidence that any metal was used in the Danubian neolithic. The fact that no metal agricultural tools or weapons have been found from this period supports this.

That looks almost dead on.

A fibula it is.

I DO NOT believe for one moment it is 6000 years old...dont care what they say. Do you actually know how they carbon date things.....Its not an exact science and a lot is left to guess work.

These days scientists and the like seem to be very narrow minded and as if they are all being controlled on what they can and can not look into and say!!

Not sure any one has said this but It looks like a hinge of some sort maybe........

Looks like you could hammer the blade looking end into wood maybe,
like in a tree or something to hang objects...........

I don't think its a tool per say but more like its a part of something else.......

Maybe we should ask the gay cave man

OK, here's my theory on it after a little research.
Another site has the story on it: www.newstrackindia.com...

During that period, men were traditionally buried lying on their right side with the head pointing towards the west, while women on their left side with the head facing east.

In this case, the man was on his left side with his head facing west. Another clue is that men tended to be interred with weapons, hammers and flint knives as well as several portions of food and drink to accompany them to the other side.

Women would be buried with necklaces made from teeth, pets, and copper earrings, as well as domestic jugs and an egg-shaped pot placed near the feet.

This supports the brooch idea, or it could be a copper earring since there's no size comparison there. I went on to find this as well: en.wikipedia.org...(brooch)
that had this picture on it

if you look at the pictures from the OP's link, they could be combined to make one very, very similar to the second from the left.



The pic I gave however says Asia Minor Fibula (Type XII.8). Phrygian. 7th c. BCE. It is a bit more "refined" so the piece in the article could be a much earlier version, but 6000 years does sound a little extreme. I'm sure they, as archeologists, carbon dated it though and I'll trust their authority on it.

Yes, I know EXACTLY how they carbon date things and it's pretty accurate. The guess work accounts for matters of perhaps 10-20 years, not centuries or eons.
I have never, in my life, been accused of being "narrow minded" and I have no one telling me what I can or cannot say.

If you read the OP's source article, you'll notice a typo. They should not have said 6000, because in following paragraphs, they state:

The skeleton of the late Stone Age man, unearthed during excavations in the Czech Republic, is said to date back to between 2900 and 2500 BC.

That would make it about 4500 to 4900 years old so they probably meant to print 5000, not 6000.
The other source I found shows similar but more detailed and refined jewelry from the 7th century BC (almost 3000 years old) and we have jewelry in today's world that hasn't really changed by extreme amounts, so their date is actually reasonable.

No question about it, they ARE being controlled. Question is: WHY? Clearly the "agenda" does not favor US...


"Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information, and religions destroy spirituality." Michael Ellner"


"A cave full of giant skeletons was found by telephone employees near Santa Barbara, California. Unfortunately, the cave entrance was sealed shut before proper excavation could be conducted."

"A giant skeleton on Santa Cruz Island, California, was sent to the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C., where it was promptly "misplaced". Source


“So University of Berkeley has been sitting on giant skeletons for 90 years and has yet to file a paper? Why? Being excited about my find I called someone I knew who had just finished her archeological degree to which I received “oh that…yeah I know, we are told not to look into this, it’s pretty well communicated if you research into giants or other races they will end your career immediately, we are told to say it’s all 1800’s media fraud regardless of the evidence, in fact they think they have found a living tribe of Neanderthals in northernmost Canada, but I don’t know anymore about it, it’s pretty controversial, again if you ask questions you’ll be working at McDonalds tomorrow”. Source


"Well, evidences abound, and this is one. I should say that there could be many more at hand, but when they have been found by Darwinians, they have been ignored, hidden or simply destroyed. Destroyed by those who later on demand such evidence. An example of this is the "mysterious" disappearance of more than 50 perfectly kept gigantic antediluvian skeletons (between 10-14 feet tall) found in a cave in Arizona. You may, or not, have heard that Mr. Samuel Hubbard, discovered remains of giants in a cave in the magnificent Grand Canyon of Arizona." Source


"There are also ancient attempts at rewriting history. Inscriptions left by pharaohs in full view of the (mostly illiterate) public are probably even less reliable than the news fed to the media by the Pentagon during the Vietnam war. A good example of this government propaganda is the Egyptian account of the battle of Kadesh.
Tomb inscriptions of high and low alike also have to be read with suspicion. Rather than reflecting reality faithfully they seem to have been intended to convince the gods of the impeccable character of the deceased."

Hey Guys:

If it's small I think it could be an ear ring. It looks like a pin with a hinge and might lock down.

I think I might be on to something. A six thousand old ear ring. Freaking crazy.

Of course they had metal in the stone age, mostly copper and some call it the "copper-stone age", that's how they progressed to the bronze age.
