150,000-Year-Old Pipes Baffle Scientists In China: Out Of Place In Time?
The universe is full of mysteries that challenge our current knowledge. In "Beyond Science" Epoch Times collects stories about these strange phenomena to stimulate the imagination and open up previously undreamed of possibilities. Are they true? You decide. Oopart (out of place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that seem to show a level of technological advancement incongruous with the times in which they were made. Ooparts often frustrate conventional scientists, delight adventurous investigators open to alternative theories, and spark debate. In a mysterious pyramid in China’s Qinghai Province near Mount Baigong are three caves filled with pipes leading to a nearby salt-water lake. Dating done by the Beijing Institute of Geology determined these iron pipes were smelted about 150,000 years ago, if they were indeed made by humans, according to Brian Dunning of Skeptoid.com. “Nature is harsh here,” he said.

This ancient collection of 70 tiny books, their lead pages bound with wire, could unlock some of the secrets of the earliest days of Christianity. Academics are divided as to their authenticity but say that if verified, they could prove as pivotal as the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947. Lines of inquiry: The metal tablets could change our understanding of the Bible Mysterious ancient object resembling UFO discovered in Russia during excavation Excavators in Russia have dug up a bizarre object that strongly resembles a UFO. The object was discovered by a coal mining company in Siberia's Kuznetsk Basin, during excavation work, reports Mirror. Adding to the mystery of how an object like that was found buried 40 metres under the ground, archaeologists called in to examine it, believe it's a man-made object. Excavator Boris Glazkov, 40, who found the object, said: "I have to say it wasn't hard to see as it was really distinctive and large. I've never seen anything like this object, which is obviously man-made, here in the middle of nowhere before. It is a real mystery."

The 10 Most Puzzling Ancient Artifacts The Bible tells us that God created Adam and Eve just a few thousand years ago, by some fundamentalist interpretations. Science informs us that this is mere fiction and that man is a few million years old, and that civilization just tens of thousands of years old. Could it be, however, that conventional science is just as mistaken as the Bible stories? There is a great deal of archeological evidence that the history of life on earth might be far different than what current geological and anthropological texts tell us. Consider these astonishing finds:

The Crazy Things The Bible Says About The Apocalypse If you've ever read through the Christian Bible and made it all the way to the end, you know it contains a book called The Book of Revelation. It was written by a man who only referred to himself as "John," and it contains some absolutely freaky things within. Many people believe that this book predicts what the coming apocalypse will look like. 150,000-Year-Old Pipes Baffle Scientists in China: Out of Place in Time?

The Most Bizarre Candies That Actually Exist Everyone loves candy! (Well, maybe not too much candy. And certainly not this candy.) Instead of being appetizing to every sweet tooth, these confections are just, well, confusing. Who thought these were a good idea?

Mohenjo Daro Some of the skeletons found at Mohenjo Daro May 08, 2013 Some have suggested ancient technology glassified these Indus Valley ruins but electricity is a more plausible explanation. The Forbidden History of Ancient China: Aryan Mummies and Hundreds of Pyramids [Hitler regarded individuals who were 6ft. 6in. and taller as being closest genetic relatives of the original proto-Aryan tribes from central Asia from which the Caucasian people and civilizations are said to have descended. Recent discoveries of hundreds of ancient mummies in Asia are forcing a re-examination of old Chinese books that describe as being of great height, with deep-set blue eyes, long noses, full beards, and red or blonde hair. The discoveries of the giant 4,000-year-old “Beauty of Loulan” and (six-foot, six-inch) “Charchan Man” support the legends about these mythical ancient Aryans.] After years of controversy and political intrigue, archaeologists using genetic testing have proven that Caucasians roamed China’s Tarim Basin thousands of years before East Asian people arrived. In historic and scientific circles the discoveries along the ancient Silk Road were on a par with finding the Egyptian mummies.
