Unexplained Artifacts Baffle Scientists

There are those that believe that as a species, we do not know as much about our history on this planet as we may think. We faithfully believe what science tells us. It isn’t until artifacts like the ones you are about to see that we begin to question what we have been taught. We begin to wonder what else we may not know, or are yet to find out.

Ancient Unexplained Footprint

The footprint seen here looks like any other ordinary footprint. Five toes, a heel and an arch are nothing out of the ordinary. Only this particular footprint has caused a few problems for scientists. Why? The obviously human footprint is fossilized in stone estimated to be about 290 million years old. This means that the footprint was made long before humans, or even dinosaurs are thought to have existed on the planet earth. The mysterious footprint was cast in Permian strata, which dates from 290 to 248 million years ago.

Smithsonian Magazine ran an article in 1992 about the strange discovery, in which the fossil and others like it that have been found were referred to as “problematica”, meaning big problems for modern day science and tough to explain, considering what we are generally taught about the history of our planet and our species.

Time Traveler’s Footprint?

This mysterious shoe print fossil was found in a Fisher Canyon, Nevada. It is estimated that the age of the coal that this size 13 shoe print was discovered in is over 15 million years old. The strange fossil even has double line of sewn stitches around the edge of the shoe. Considering the fact that coal takes millions of years to form, it would be impossible unless there was actually a shoe wearing human present at the time the footprint was made in the stone, that eventually turned to coal. Could there have been advanced civilizations well before modern day science has stated? Some have even attributed this mysterious print to a careless time traveler, referring to the fossil as the “Time Travelers Footprint”.

Mystery Hammer

In the early 1930’s,  a man named Max Hahn and his wife Emma stumbled upon something rather strange while taking a walk. They happened upon a rock that seemed to have something sticking out of it’s side.  Because of the strange look, they decided to take the rock home. Later they became increasingly curious about what could be inside of the rock and used a common hammer and chisel to break open the stone. What they found inside looked to be a very very old hammer.

Archaeologists studied the find and determined that the rock encasing the hammer was well over 400 million years old. The actual hammer turned out to be more than 500 million years old and part of it had started to transform into coal. The hammer’s head was determined to be nearly 96% iron and fashioned in a way that only modern technology could have created. So what is the explanation for this ancient hammer?

Mysterious Grooved Spheres

Finally, over the last thirty years, miners in South Africa have been stumbling upon odd metal spheres while digging. There has been no explanation as to exactly how the spheres arrived there or who made them. The small spheres measure about an inch in diameter, and some have what look like three parallel grooves around the entire sphere. Some spheres are solid, while others are hollow with a strange sponge like substance in the middle. The rock that the spheres were discovered in is Precambrian. This makes them over 2.8 Billion years old. Confusing to say the least. So are all of these finds complete game changers for the scientific community? Some believe that they are simply hoaxes, while others are concerened that the scientific community has put these findings on a shelf and continue to teach what could be grossly inaccurate information. Were there humans walking the earth millions of years before dinosaurs even existed? Have time travelers left their signature in stone, knowing that one day the world would find and question the strange discovery? Either way, these findings and others like them are very interesting.
