Like everybody else, I was also fooled to believe modern science could explain all known phenomena. As the years go by, I started to doubt my belief. There is no doubt modern science had done a lot for us. It’s only that there are many things which it can’t explain.
Now and then we read in news that archeologists found some kind of advanced civilization for the times. Most of these revelations were for stone tools, cave arts etc. But what if we found artifacts that are too difficult to explain and almost impossible to make with all our modern technology?
That’s where the rubber meets the road. The below such artifacts are not only too advanced for those times, but too advanced for us too, in one way or the other.
Probably the most famous ancient marvel in the world, Stonehenge may look like a simple pile of rocks, but it’s actually an ancient astronomical observatory. By moving these stones once a year, the ancient people were able to predict the movements of the moon. How’d they ever figure that one out? And more importantly, how did they even manage to move the immense stones in the first place?
Roman Concrete, The Best Ever
When scientists discovered a sample of ancient Roman concrete in the Mediterranean Sea, they found that Roman methods were superior to ours, both in terms of durability and environmental safety.
The Gate Of The Sun
This archeological marvel comes from the Tiwanaku, which was a civilization that lived in modern-day Bolivia before the Incas. Their work appears to outshine even the Aztec’s in terms of technological know-how. For instance, one of the quarries where the stones for this arch were found is 50 miles away from the site. That seems a bit too far for a civilization that didn’t even make use of animal labor to drag the stones.
The Pyramids Of Giza
This pyramid was the largest man-made structure in the world for 3,800 years. Baffled scientists are still trying to figure out what techniques were used in its construction.. Some stone blocks are so heavier that none of the modern cranes or any modern machinery can lift. Apart from that the gaps between the stone gaps is so infinitesimal that it has to be measured with lasers.
Now How come so ancient a civilization like the Egyptians could possibly do that? No clue! [stag_sidebar id=’contentads’]
Dated between 150 and 100 B.C., this device found in Greece is considered to be an ancient analog computer that predicts astrological positions. It uses a complex series of gears that is far more advanced than the technology scientists believe was available to them at the time. Now think about the astronomical prowess of these ancient people.
This ancient Peruvian site has confused archeologists for quite some time, as the giant stones in the wall are so close together that not even blades of grass can slide between them. It has also survived for thousands of years with no visible mortar keeping it together.
Although they didn’t really start being used until the Industrial Revolution, the first steam engine was actually invented in 10 A.D. by the Greek mathematician Hero of Alexandria. He may have also invented the world’s first vending machine thousands of years before the products commonly found in them were conceived.
It was long held in an ancient Nordic myth that a magic gem was used to navigate the seas in low-visibility situations. Scientists have recently figured out that this gem is real and is more deeply rooted in science than magic. The Iceland spar refracts light to make it visible in cloudy or nighttime conditions.
The Nazca desert in Peru is home to a series of huge, mystical geoglyphs that were etched into the Earth’s surface between 450 and 600 A.D. These geological designs are truly bizarre when you think about how the miracle of flight didn’t exist until quite some time after this. The symmetry and perfection of these lines are so mind blowing that its igniting alien theory. Who were these ancient messages meant for, then?
Tesla Motors might be at work perfecting the electronic battery today. It might be taking decades after decades to create a perfect battery to serve a household. But as early as 250 B.C., clay batteries were used in an ancient town near Baghdad that could produce at least two volts of electricity. What could they possibly have been powering back then? Nobody knows!
Things like these are not just troubling scientists but also igniting enthusiasm in common folks to see who is behind these ancient, advanced innovations. Were the ancient people so advanced than us to device things with nothing but naturally available supply and their legacy is lost in the vast amount of time? Or the ancient civilizations were seeded by other advanced civilizations from outer space? What’s your take on this?
