Mysterious and Strange Archeology Discoveries That Science Cannot Explain
[link to socyberty.com]


Looking for some mysterious and Strange archeology discoveries that Science cannot explain yet?….This is a collection of twelve items or locations that have been discovered through archeology that either do not fit our understanding of history or do not fit into the proper time frame. Another common name for the research into these mysterious items is "forbidden archeology."

This article discusses 12 mysterious and strange discoveries made in archeology over the past two centuries that science cannot explain (at least not yet) and could turn our whole concept of history upside down. These items and locations are so mind blowing that most scientists and historians even refuse to speculate on what they could mean and most choose to simply ignore them altogether or dismiss them as hoaxes without doing the proper research on them. What makes the situation even worse with these items is that anyone who does try and research them are often shunned by the academic community and when any non-traditional theories are made (that don’t fit the standard historical record), they are quickly dismissed as “pseudo-science.” ......

1.) Radioactive human remains found in Harrapa and Mohenjo-Daro.

Any link to a non-kook website that this is actually true?

2.) Cocaine and Tobacco residues found in Egyptian Mummies.

There are Old World plants that have nicotine or cocaine in them, although in lower concentrations then the usual New World sources.
Considering that the dog is the only domesticated Old World species found in pre-Columbian America, and that the Amerinds never developed bronze working, the notion of ancient trade routes between Egypt and America should be approached with considerable scepticism.

3.) Antikythera Mechanism.

Is a mechanical calculator. Ancient writings mention similar devices.
This is an example of lost technology, at least in the West.
In Byzantium and the Islamic world during the Middle ages less complex mechanical devices were build.

4.) Baghdad Battery.

What's so unexplainable about batteries?
They are extremely simple batteries. If that is what they were. There are other theories.

5.) Strata from the Earth depicting fossils of both dinosaur and human footprints.

Only according to some creationists.

6.) Ancient plumbing and piping in China.

Chinese scientists have established that the Baigong Pipes are fossilised tree casts.

7.) Crystal Skulls.

All known crystal skulls that have been properly investigated are of relatively modern manufacture.
No crystal skull has a provenance showing it came from a pre-Columbian source.

8.) Giant Balls of Costa Rica.

Are giant man-made balls carved from stone.
There are lots of artifacts made by cultures now long gone about which one can only speculate about there purpose.
Their 'incredible precision' is vastly exaggerated. It is a kook myth.

9.) China's First Emperor's Pyramid.

Why is this even on the list?

10.) Buildings with interlocking segments Puma Punku.

B.S. The builders of Pumapunku were master stone-cutters and great engineers.
'Could not recreate' is just another kook myth.
Kooks have a tendency to sheepishly quote each other rather then to check the veracity of such claims.

11.) The Voynich Manuscript.

Plenty of hypotheses around.
One of them being that it is deliberate gibberish.
Anyhow, what exactly is 'unexplainable' about a code that hasn't been broken yet?
Isn't that what codes are for?

12.) Small Ancient Flying Machines.

From the very website: Explanations have been offered from children’s toys, someone’s imagination, a flying fish, or actual ancient flying machines either made by the local population or seen in the sky by them.

Any of these might be true. Or not.
Some are more probable then others, though.
The simple fact is that without more data one can't tell.

This is normal.

 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

I like how you present rather poor quality arguments in attempting to... neutralise? Debunk? Oppose? Normalise? Each point; you say...

This is normal.

Then say;
with fantasies
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD


They are either normal, or fantasies; but not both.

Given physical existence, we cannot devise that they are fantasty.

4.) Baghdad Battery.

What's so unexplainable about batteries?
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

Your ignorance is shown by asking such a question.

Timeframe and context.

500AD was not known for demonstrating any knowledge of electricity... let alone the chemical know how of how to produce it.

To put 500AD in context, this is the same year that they were:

Fighting with swords, using bow and arrows, insisting anything and everything was a religious or superstitious matter, herbal medicine, alchemy. Most metal work was relatively simplistic even to the later eras. This was before the middle ages.

You are proposing, a group of men, somewhere, somehow (despite believing things to have superstitious origins), concluded that, without any form of test device or generator, that electricity existed? And more so, that these same men somehow knew, during a time when they thought gold could be made from lead, the right chemical compositions, despite having no lab, and no easy means to produce the chemicals? Please don't use the battery as a post-hoc justification of this point, otherwise I will ask you how they found out, of which you will not be able to reply.

Conversely, and not using the blog as a note, but providing the necessary historical backing, what purpose did the batteries serve? I doubt it would be for powering the world's first baghdad gameboy.

You ignore the vital point, namely, that the primitive tools used by people several thousands years ago - as found by archeologists - were totally incapable of carving such segments. This is obvious to any rational person. Of course debunkers are not rational.

Debunkers have a tendency to never get out of their armchairs and enter the real world of the possible.

That fusing of bones scares me. It is like maybe this happened from a large solar flare.... there is a large plume of magnetism in our suns core..... could this eventually make it to the surface and shoot off a huge electron flare....

What I knew as tangible and real was nothing more than a flimsy, thin sheet of a reality.
I come to know that the real "me" is a supersoul that is my true reality that resides in the spirit world.

Re: Mysterious and Strange Archeology Discoveries That Science Cannot Explain
Filling in the lacunae in ones knowledge with fantasies is useless.

I like how you present rather poor quality arguments in attempting to... neutralise? Debunk? Oppose? Normalise? Each point; you say...
 Quoting: Joshua Flynn 1230882

Just opposing the tendentious rhetoric of the article.
Much of it is a lie anyway.

This is normal.

Then say;

with fantasies

They are either normal, or fantasies; but not both.

Given physical existence, we cannot devise that they are fantasy.
 Quoting: Joshua Flynn 1230882

Shortcomings in our understanding are normal, filling in the gaps with ancient astronauts, or Atlantians, or Nargles, isn't.
Parsimony doesn't allow it.

4.) Baghdad Battery.

What's so unexplainable about batteries?


Your ignorance is shown by asking such a question.

Timeframe and context.
[..]
You are proposing, a group of men, somewhere, somehow (despite believing things to have superstitious origins), concluded that, without any form of test device or generator, that electricity existed?
 Quoting: Joshua Flynn 1230882

You can feel electricity.

Why couldn't they have serendipitously discovered it, just like Volta.
Container, acid, copper, zinc. That's all it takes.
The notion that our ancestors were stupid is just another kook myth.

BTW, do you know where the word electricity comes from.

Conversely, and not using the blog as a note, but providing the necessary historical backing, what purpose did the batteries serve? I doubt it would be for powering the world's first Baghdad gameboy.
 Quoting: Joshua Flynn 1230882

Perchance to electrify the gold plating on temple doors and idols, so worshippers could feel 'the power of the god'.
That'd be a neat trick, and a good reason to keep the trade secret a secret.

Or perhaps they were just odd storage containers. Not enough data.

10.) Buildings with interlocking segments Puma Punku.

B.S. The builders of Pumapunku were master stone-cutters and great engineers.
'Could not recreate' is just another kook myth.
Kooks have a tendency to sheepishly quote each other rather then to check the veracity of such claims.


You ignore the vital point, namely, that the primitive tools used by people several thousands years ago - as found by archeologists - were totally incapable of carving such segments. This is obvious to any rational person. Of course debunkers are not rational.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1230903

Says you.

Debunkers have a tendency to never get out of their armchairs and enter the real world of the possible.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1230903

Pummelling a stone into shape requires a lot of pummelling, you know, a hard day's work.
Tungsten-steel tools just make it easier.
Dripping water can hollow out the hardest rock given enough time.

Got some links?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1230050

Most of it is from my untrustworthy memory.

Wikipedia might be just as good a place to start as any other.
Use Google (what you need might not be on the first page), use discernment, don't believe everything you read, don't just stick to True Believers sites, try to find the original sources, etc.
In short, shop around in the Marketplace of Ideas, don't limit yourself to the corner store.

Even if science did explain it, it would have very little credibility.

Re: Mysterious and Strange Archeology Discoveries That Science Cannot Explain
there was an advanced civilization before the flood of noah's day

noah and his sons were very smart, as evidenced by the ark they built

they passed knowledge on to their sons etc

but it did not take too many generations before there were too many people and not enough teachers to pass the knowledge on

that is why no one really knows how the giza pyramid & other sites were constructed

Re: Mysterious and Strange Archeology Discoveries That Science Cannot Explain
I love how we've all been taught that humans from the past were dumb that all of them died in their 30's. Why is it when something odd is found science jumps right on it to say nope not possible. Wake up it is all one big lie. right so not one person during the construction of pyramids ever felt static electricty really? like they wouldn't have looked into this, but hey they knew about other planets WTF
