But, the "spheres" are not perfect, and they represent where certain celestial bodies are at certain points in time. They are not in a fixed position which means this was an on-going experiment where they moved their celestial models around on the floor (the sky) to see what the sky will look like at some point in the future.

The difference is that the Scientists are right there in the Pyramid looking at and analyzing what they have found vs a pic from another planet.

Wow.. what a lame answer coming from you. You normally give way better info. (from my question on page 4)
They can get away with saying these rocks are anything they want because they are hidden in a tunnel humans cannot get to. the lie would be a safe one.
These things are Not perfect spheres..
they are rough shaped rock like things.
My point is.. there is NO reason at all to assume these were anything but simple rocks.. unless you can tell me otherwise.. and i don't believe you can and the article doesn't say.
They even jump to the conclusion that these things were used in religious ceremonies - i wonder how far they went to make that one up.. there is no altar, no deep gorrve for blood to channel down into the sacrificial cup etc LOL..
Teotihuacanos practiced human sacrifice: human bodies and animal sacrifices have been found during excavations of the pyramids at Teotihuacan. Scholars believe that the people offered human sacrifices as part of a dedication when buildings were expanded or constructed. The victims were probably enemy warriors captured in battle and brought to the city for ritual sacrifice to ensure the city could prosper.
Some men were decapitated, some had their hearts removed, others were killed by being hit several times over the head, and some were buried alive. Animals that were considered sacred and represented mythical powers and military were also buried alive, imprisoned in cages: cougars, a wolf, eagles, a falcon, an owl, and even venomous snakes.

That was my first thought. Sulfer.
This sulfate mineral is formed in ore deposits by the oxidation of iron sulfides. Jarosite is often produced as a byproduct during the purification and refining of zinc and is also commonly associated with acid mine drainage and acid sulfate soil environments.
Mysterious spheres of clay, 1.5 to 5 inches in diameter, covered with jarosite have recently been discovered beneath the Temple of the Feathered Serpent an ancient six level stepped pyramid 30 miles from Mexico City.

Wow! How unusual. I don't think I can recall anything quite like this being discovered.
The mind boggles as to what they may have been used for and by whom.
Imagine if they turned out possessing some abnormal properties. Whatever the case, really interesting.
Scientists baffled by hundreds of spheres found in hidden tunnels
This may be a stupid question, and maybe I'm just not seeing it right, but is this supposed to be the underground tunnel area, is this above picture underground? It looks like a small pyramid like structure of it's own sort..edit on 31-12-2013 by TheIceQueen because: (no reason given)

The robot which has explored the tunnel leading to 3 chambers beneath Temple of the Feathered Serpent, has found hundreds of spheres in the two rooms so far named North chamber and South chamber…
