Yes, that is a theory and a possibility.
Think about this though. The big one south of Calgary that you mentioned is the biggest known glacial erratic in the world, and it's greatest width is
9 meters. The largest in the US is 18 meters in length but is less massive.
The Unknown Baltic sea object is 60 meters in diameter. It sits on an equally wide foundation at least 7 meters in height.
If it is a glacial erratic, it is the mother of all glacial erratics.
If you google 'glacial erratics' you'll get a pretty good idea what they generally look like. Big, uneven rock slabs. Gortex singled out the two
formations that looks remotely like the Baltic sea object - without having the same geological characteristics - while most others look nothing like
You now know what the Baltic sea object looks like. It is reported to be almost perfectly circular, lenticular in shape and concrete-ish. Something
that looks like stairs lead up to it on one side. Geologically it doesn't seem to fit into the landscape.
According to the divers, the whole area around the object is strange. There's another, smaller rectangular object not far from the circular object
that they are interested in, but they haven't yet been able to investigate it.
There's some type of track or groove that runs through the landscape and leads up to these objects.
All in all it's a very anomalous object, very interesting to geologists. A question every geologist must ask him/herself and answer satisfactory is;
how come this 60 meter wide, lenticular object of unknown material didn't break up? It does not seem to fit in to the geological landscape, so it must
have travelled far. And why is it almost perfectly round?
It is my personal opinion that any geologist that - based on what we know for now - says this is probably a glacial erratic, is guessing.
