OOPArts (Out of place Artefacts)

Postby Grahame Gardner » Sun Aug 10, 2014 11:22 am

A rather interesting article from Malta Now detailing several cases of Out of Place Artifacts - items that suggest that humans have existed on Earth for millions of years more than currently accepted scientific theory suggests.

In June 1936 Max Hahn and his wife Emma were on a walk beside a waterfall near to London, Texas, when they noticed a rock with wood protruding from its core. They decided to take the oddity home and later cracked it open with a hammer and a chisel. What they found within shocked the archaeological and scientific community. Embedded in the rock was what appeared to be some type of ancient man made hammer.

A team of archaeologists analysed and dated it. The rock encasing the hammer was dated to more than 400 million years old. The hammer itself turned out to be more than 500 million years old. Additionally, a section of the wooden handle had begun the metamorphosis into coal. The hammer’s head, made of more than 96% iron, is far more pure than anything nature could have achieved without assistance from relatively modern smelting methods.

The Paluxy river human & dinosaur footprints story is one of the most controversial and is frequently cited on Creationist websites to support their theory that humans and dinosaurs co-existed; however it has been debunked several times, as have most of the other items - here is a fairly representative list:

Would anyone care to dowse the ages of these artifacts? It could be an interesting exercise.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it - Terry Pratchett.
