Here is an interesting story we found that was featured on a now defunct website maltanow.com.mt. We wanted to share this story because it reminded us of some of the readings we have done, especially the book Forbidden Archaeology by Michael Cremo, which suggests that much of the "history" we are taught in school is quite incorrect. Many archaeological finds have been suppressed or hidden so that they do not shake the world view that took so long to establish. Being skeptical, of course we would want more investigation into the finds mentioned below. But they do seem quite incredible, and somehow, believable.
These days it seems everyone on the Internet who presents an idea or hypothesis on anything from human origins to modern politics gets thrashed by the peanut gallery.
I’m not here to say I have all the answers, far from it. I am however, here to suggest that everyone interested in questions like, “Who built the giant megalithic structures that modern “science” cannot explain,” “How do we have artifacts and structures that pre-date when modern “science” says mankind’s existence began,” or “Why does modern “science” refuse to investigate certain artifacts and megalithic structures?” all have a common enemy: Those who are orchestrating the largest cover-up in human history.
The following video was praised by Michael Rogers of “Library Journal” who said, “It’s Indiana Jones meets The X-Files in this intriguing program that tackles the age-old question “Where did we come from?” Fascinating viewing! Highly recommended!” The creators of the Emmy Award Winning Mystery of the Sphinx present a revolutionary new film that examines one of our greatest mysteries: Man’s origins. Hosted by Charlton Heston, this film challenges what we are being taught about human evolution and the rise of early civilization. A new breed of scientific investigators present startling evidence that the academic community has quietly ignored.
Then after the video, Graham Pick present even MORE evidence that Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie! Finally, at the end of the article by Graham Pick, you will find more links that merge the questions, “Who are we, and where did our civilization come from,” and “Who is determined to make sure archeological evidence of those origins never come to light.” Everything from the Giants of Genesis: Chapter 6 to ancient alien theories are covered within.
Graham Pick writes:
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 analyzed 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.
In 1889 near Nampa, Idaho, whilst workers were boring an artesian well, a small figurine made of baked clay was extracted from a depth of 320 feet. To reach this depth the workers had to cut through fifteen feet of basalt lava and many other strata below that. That in itself does not seem remarkable, until one considers that the very top layer of lava has been dated to at least 15 million years old!
It is currently accepted by science and geology that coal is a by-product of decaying vegetation. The vegetation becomes buried over time and is covered with sediment. That sediment eventually fossilizes and becomes rock. This natural process of coal formation takes up to 400 million years to accomplish.
Anything that is found in lumps of coal or in coal seams during mining, had to have been placed or dropped into the vegetation before it was buried in sediment.
In 1944, as a ten year old boy, Newton Anderson, dropped a lump of coal in his basement and it broke in half as it hit the floor. What he discovered inside defies explanation based upon current scientific orthodoxy. Inside the coal was a hand crafted brass alloy bell with an iron clapper and sculptured handle.
When an analysis was carried out it was discovered that the bell was made from an unusual mix of metals, different from any known modern alloy production (including copper, zinc, tin, arsenic, iodine, and selenium). The seam from whence this lump of coal was mined is estimated to be 300,000,000 years old!
These extraordinary discoveries although bizarre, are not unique or even uncommon. There are literally thousands of them collecting dust, locked away from public scrutiny in the vaults of museums throughout the world. There are many other unusual reported finds including the following:
The Morrisonville, Illinois Times, on June 11, 1891, reported how Mrs. S. W. Culp found a circular shaped eight-carat gold chain, about 10 inches long, embedded in a lump of coal after she broke it apart to put in her scuttle. The chain was described as “antique” and of “quaint workmanship.”
Displayed in a museum at Glen Rose, Texas, is a cast iron pot reportedly found in a large lump of coal in 1912 by a worker feeding coal into the furnace of a power plant. When he split open the coal the worker said the pot fell out, leaving its impression in the coal.
Yet another report found in the Epoch Times told of a Colorado rancher who in the 1800’s broke open a lump of coal, dug from a vein some 300 feet below the surface, and discovered a “strange-looking iron thimble.”
The Salzburg Cube is yet another ancient puzzle found by a worker named Reidl, in an Austrian foundry in 1885. Like the others, this man broke open a block of coal and found a metal cube embedded inside. Recent analysis established the object was of forged iron and obviously hand crafted. The coal it was found in was millions of years old. The list of such items goes on and on and on.
Welcome to the world of Ooparts, or Out of Place Artefacts. Out of place artefacts (Ooparts) are so named because conventional scientific wisdom (an oxymoron if ever there was one) states that these artefacts shouldn’t exist based upon currently accepted beliefs regarding our origins and history. These discoveries are “out of place” in the orthodox timeline of human history.
