Out of Place Fossils
Out of Place Fossils

Author : Martin Jeffrey

"The world is a museum of anomalous history, filled with the curious and the incredible...let us take a look around..." Richard Marshall, Mysteries of the World

Out of place humans?
Dr Wilbur Burroughs, head of geology at Berea College, Kentucky announced in 1928 that he had discovered 10 humanoid footprints in carboniferous sandstone.

The prints were 9 and a half inches long and 6 inches across the toes. Photomicrographs and infrared photography revealed no signs of carving or artificial marking in and around the prints.

The rock in which the prints were found was estimated to be 240 million years old.

In 1927 at Fisher Canyon, Nevada a fossil of a well-cut, double stitched leather sole was found by quarrymen. The rock was identified as Triassic limestone, 160 to 195 million years old. (1)

Out of place technology
In 1851 Hiram de Witt of Massachusetts accidentally dropped a fist-sized piece of gold bearing quartz that he had previously brought back from California. The rock was broken apart by the fall and inside it De Witt found a two-inch nail. "It was slightly corroded..But entirely straight and had a perfect head. (2)

Extensive quarrying was done near the city of Aix-en-Provence, France, between 1786 and 1788, to provide the large quantities of limestone required for the rebuilding of the Palace of Justice. In the quarry from which this limestone was taken, the rock strata were separated from each other by layers of sand and clay, and by the time the workmen and removed 11 layers of rock they found they had reached a depth of some 40 or 50 feet below the original ground level of the area.

Beneath the 11th layer of limestone they came to a bed of sand and began to remove it to get to the rock beneath. But in the sand they found stumps of stone pillars and fragments of half-worked rock - the same as they had themselves been excavating. They dug further and to their intense surprise found coins, the petrified handles of hammers, and pieces of other petrified wooden tools. Finally they came to a large wooden board, seven or eight feet long and an inch thick. Like the wooden tools, it had also been petrified and been broken into pieces. When the pieces were reassembled, the workmen saw before them a quarryman's board of exactly the kind themselves used and worn in the same way as their boards were.

How a stonemason's yard, equipped with the kind of tools used in France in the late 18th century, had come to be buried 50 feet deep under layers of sand and limestone 300 million years old will never be known. (3)

Scottish Finds
A nail partially embedded in a block of stone taken from a Scottish quarry was described at a meeting for the advancement of science in 1845. Sir David Brewster, who gave the report, said that about an inch of a nail embedded, the rest lying along the stone and projecting into a layer of gravel. The depth from which the nail was removed was not on record, but the quarry had been worked for twenty years prior to the discovery. (4)

Another report from Scotland declares that workmen quarrying near the River Tweed found a piece of gold thread embedded in rock eight feet below ground level in 1844.

Extraterrestrial Finds in Russia ?
Researchers in the field of out of place artefacts often believe that the findings may be proof of extraterrestrial visitors. Evidence to support this, has been found, principally by Dr. Johannes Fiebag. The following text is taken from the article "SENSATIONAL FIND IN RUSSIA" By Hartwig Hausdorf from the Ancient Skies magazine.

"In the years 1991-1993, gold prospectors on the small river Narada, on the eastern side of the Ural mountains, have found unusual, mostly spiral-shaped objects. The size of these things ranges from a maximum of 3 cm (1.2 in.) down to an incredible 0.003 mm, about 1/10,000th of an inch! To date, these inexplicable artefacts have been found in their thousands at various sites near the rivers Narada, Kozhim, and Balbanyu, and also by two smaller streams named Vtvisty and Lapkhevozh, mostly at depths between 3 and 12 meters (10 and 40 ft.)

The spiral-form objects are composed of various metals: the larger ones are of copper, while the small and very small ones are of the rare metals tungsten and molybdenum. (Tungsten is a) Metal used for hardening steels and giving them corrosion-resistant properties, these being used principally for highly-stressed weapon parts and vehicle armour.

At the present time, these more-than-mysterious objects are being investigated by the Russian Academy of Sciences in Syktyvka (capital city of the former Soviet Republic of Komi), Moscow, St. Petersburg, and also a scientific institute in Helsinki, Finland. Exact measurements of these often microscopically small objects have shown that the dimensions of the spirals are in the so-called Golden Mean ratio. Since ancient classical times this fraction has been the "iron rule" in architecture and geometry. Its usefulness is in the fact that if a certain length is divided into two using this ratio, the ratio of the original length to the larger piece is the same as that of the larger piece to the smaller piece.

As with all phenomena, researchers of Anomalous Fossils have very diverse and confusing theories to explain the fossils presence.

"Creationists" believe that the evidence points to proof of the ways of the Bible. Two groups of Creationists mounted expeditions to retrieve sets of prints from the bed of the Paluxy River in Texas. Allegedly the rocks show the tracks of a human being and a three-toed dinosaur crossing each other, one of the human prints squashes the edge of a dinosaur print.

UFO researchers, especially in the case of the Ural Mountains find, believe that OOP fossils are evidence of extraterrestrials and time travellers. Why a time traveller would walk barefoot in Triassic times will never be known!

Whatever the fossils are, there is a wealth of information on the internet about recent out of place artefacts and fossils, go on, be an armchair discoverer!

Re: Out of Place Fossils
These artifacts are easily explained. They are left by the people who go missing every year. Every year tens of thousands of people just completely vanish without a trace. Some of them end up back in time. The wander around for a while until something eats them and all that's left behind are tracks or an artifact or two.

What we call reality isn't as stable as most people think it is. It has holes and rips. Time is not a constant linear thing. It loops, rewinds and skips. We just can't perceive it very well. Mostly all we get is a sense of deja vu.

Some people get "lost" in time. The greatest majority of them end up in random space. Imagine walking along and suddenly finding yourself in the silence cold of interplanetary space. It would be quite a surprising 10 seconds until you lost consciousness. Of those that end up on Earth, they wind up inside a mountain or lake and expire immediately. But a very few of them survive the trip. Since most people are not equipped to survive in a prehistoric world they die rather fast. We find their traces.

There is no mystery here.

That's pretty much it. Reality is full of holes. The holes travel forward and backward in time and space. They appear randomly and send whatever it entraps to a random place. It's the worst way to travel.

Ever lose something? 99.9% of the time it was just misplaced. But sometimes it falls through and becomes an out of place artifact.

There are stories of gateways and portals where strange things happen. These places are due to geologic conditions that focus the "holes" to a single area. As far as I know there are no holes that have both ends stable. Where and when you end up is always random.

It's all the same phenomena. Ghosts figure into this too, but I haven't worked that out quite yet.

I lost my ipod and a unopened can of Red Bull about 12million years ago when I was time traveling. If they ever find it I'm screwed, the ipod has my name on it.

Interesting hypothesis, thank you for sharing it.

IMO...

Time is like an ocean, like waves and crests depending on location. It only has a forward momentum that cannot be reversed but maybe time can be slowed down and sped up to a degree, kind of like pitch control on a turntable.

All from the First Earth Age.

We are in the Second one now.

There will be a third and final age coming soon.

From what I found of the Ages come from Christian theology which do not account for the finds in the limestone quarry of tools and such.

Most references quote something to the effect of:
"Mankind did not exist in the flesh..."

Interesting nonetheless.

Re: Out of Place Fossils
The more secluded a star system is the more likely it would be used as an interstellar rest stop for early life in this galaxy. Especially way out on the edge of the Galaxy, a great jumping point for intergalactic exploration.

Although i agree, random vortexes and interdimensional rips explain a few other anomolies. There's a reason why people dont bring up the thousands of unsolved missing cases every year, the only reasonable explanations are scary as hell.
