Mankind has always been convinced of its superiority over all other forms of life on Earth. We consider ourselves to be the most intelligent, the most advanced and the most technologically advanced. However, findings of ancient artifacts that cannot be explained by the existing scientific paradigm make us think: maybe we are not the first highly developed civilizations on Earth?
Pre-Cambrian metal vase
In 1852, a metal vase dating back to 600 million years old was discovered in Massachusetts, USA. This raises questions for scientists, as at that time there were no civilizations on Earth capable of working metal. The vase itself was made of metal, reminiscent of zinc or an alloy with silver, and decorated with an image of six flowers in the form of a bouquet, inlaid with silver, as well as a vine or wreath. This indicates that at that time there may have been highly advanced civilizations on Earth.
Metal pipes in France
In 1910, in the Cretaceous deposits of age 65-144 million years near Saint-Jean-de-Livier (France) were found embedded in the stone metal pipes of unusual oval cross-section. This find also puzzled scientists, because at that time there were no civilizations capable of creating such pipes.
Metal nail in Scotland
In 1844, a crude metal nail was excavated from Devonian deposits (360-408 million years old) near Kingudi Covey, Scotland. This is another example of a find that cannot be explained by the current scientific paradigm.
Concrete wall in Oklahoma
In 1928 in a coal mine near the town of Hivener (Oklahoma, USA), fragments of a concrete wall at least 286 million years old were discovered. An unknown ancient craftsman polished the surface of the blocks so thoroughly that they could be used as mirrors. This find raises questions, as concrete production is considered a relatively new invention.
Findings of ancient artifacts that cannot be explained by the current scientific paradigm make us think that perhaps there were highly advanced civilizations on Earth before us. These findings raise many questions that scientists cannot yet answer. However, they give us an opportunity to reconsider our idea of what our planet’s distant past was like.
