seems like the bible missed its mark once again, eh ?
Ancient tools.......... in 1786, workers came to a bed of sand about 50 feet below ground level and found stumps of stone pillars, coins, hammers, and petrified wooden tools. The sand was beneath a layer of limestone dated at 300 million years old.
Bones in rock........... Ed Conrad found fossilized human bones embedded in solid shale rock in Pennsylvania. The rock in which they were trapped is between 280 and 300 million years old.
Spark plug......... In 1961, owner of a shop in California found a fossil-encrusted geode. When the owner cut the geode with a diamond saw, he found an object inside that had a metal core surrounded by layers of a ceramic-like material and a hexagonal wooden sleeve. The object resembled a modern spark plug yet it was encased in a geode estimated to be 500,000 years old.
Very old nail......... In 1851, Hiram de Witt found a fist-sized chunk of auriferous quartz while on a trip to California. When it slipped from his hands, it split open, and out fell a cut-iron nail. The quartz was about 1 million years old.
Ancient nanotechnology........ In 1991, gold prospectors in Russia found spiral-shaped objects, the smallest measuring about 1/10,000th of an inch! Tests showed the objects to be between 20,000 and 318,000 years old.
Old screw.......... In 1865, a two-inch metal screw was discovered in a piece of feldspar unearthed from Nevada. The screw had long oxidized, but its form - particularly the shape of its threads - could be clearly seen in the feldspar. The stone was calculated to be 21 million years in age.
Mysterious vase......... In 1851, Boston Transcript reported about a metallic vase, was dynamited out of solid rock in Massachusetts. The bell-shaped vase was composed of a zinc and silver alloy. The estimated age of the rock out of which it came: 100,000 years.
Chain in coal......... In 1891, Mrs. S. W. Culp, of Illinois was fragmenting coal for her stove when she noticed a chain stuck in the coal. The chain measured about 10 inches long and made of eight-carat gold, investigators concluded the chain had not been dropped in with the coal, since some of the coal still clung to the chain, while the part that had separated from it still bore the impression of where the chain had been encased.
Ica stones........In 1966, Dr. Javier Cabrera, was given a rock by a local peasant. On it was a picture of a fish, carved thousands of years ago. Cabrera realized the fish depicted was of a species that has been extinct for millions of years. Cabrera found thousands like it in Ica, Per. On them were carved impossible ancient scenes: telescopes, open heart surgery.
