Human Artifacts in Ancient Rock
At the junction of paleontology and archaeology are some fascinating artifacts that have been discovered in rock layers supposed to be many millions of years old. Controversial finds like these are often obscured and forgotten by modern scientists. In their massive, 900 page book, Forbidden Archaeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race, authors Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson present an overwhelming array of anomalous evidence that challenges the prevailing story of human origins. The book begins with a thorough discussion of incised and broken bones, evidence of human activity from strata dated between the Pleistocene and Eocene. There follows a compelling presentation of flint tools that bear evidence of human workmanship, like the scraping and boring tools from the Red Crag in England (Pliocene-Eocene). After completely reviewing the evidence, the authors conclude that double standards, prejudice, and buried evidence have led the scientific establishment to a completely flawed view of human origins.
Other fascinating ancient artifacts include the small zinc and silver vessel found in a Massachusetts rock layer supposed to be 600 million years old, and advanced stone tools found in California gold mines. Professor J.D. Whitney, the state geologist of California, published a lengthy review of these implements, including spear points, mortars and pestles, verifying that they were found deep in mine shafts underneath thick, undisturbed layers of lava thought to be from 9 to 55 million years old. An artifact buried underneath these massive sediment layers would be considered by most creationists to have been buried during the Genesis Flood. But probably the four best candidates for pre-Flood (or antediluvian) artifacts are:
