Human Figurine In Idaho
clay figurine was raised from deep in the earth during mining operations at Nampa, Idaho, in 1889 that has left historians,
anthropologists, geologists and even theologians scratching their heads.
is because the tiny figurine emerged from the 300-foot level of a well boring, which dated its origins to the Pilo-Pleistocene
age, about 2 million years ago. And that is long before even the evolutionists believe the first humans appeared on the planet.
they determine the age of such an item? G. F. Wright, co-author of “Paleolithic Implements of the Valley of the Delaware,”
noted that after showing the figurine to Professor F. W. Putnam, “he at once directed attention to the character of
the incrustations of iron upon the surface as indicative of a relic of considerable antiquity. There were patches of anhydrous
red oxide of iron in protected places upon it, such has could not have been formed upon any fraudulent object.”
clues, and the fact that the clay figurine emerged from 300 feet under the earth in a clay geological stratum dating to the
Pliocene-Pleistocene period which occurred 2 million years ago, helped date its origin.
balls were found at the same general depth and displaying similar iron oxide discoloration, suggesting even more ultra-early
is about an inch and a half in length, is clearly a figure of a clothed female human, and Wright said it “had the lifelike
lineaments in the parts which were finished that would do credit to the classic centers of art.”
this be? British archaeologist Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews suggested that there were possible events that could have put the
figurine there and give an artificial appearance of great antiquity.
is likely that the figurine had spent a considerable time below the ground at the site. However we do not how well sealed
the clay layer was by the basalt at this spot. In other words, it is possible that the figurine is of much more recent date.
There are numerous mechanisms by which the figurine could have worked its way into the Pliocene-Pleistocene clay.”
who obviously refuses to accept the possibility that humans may have evolved and then gone extinct at a much earlier time
in antiquity, suggests such things as fissures or human mining activity might have caused an artifact like this to fall that
deep into the earth.
worms are known to cause objects to sink deep into the earth because of their constant burrowing in the soil.
possibility offered by Fitzpatrick-Matthews was that the figurine may have literally been pushed there by the drill that eventually
brought it up to the surface. We find that questionable since the figurine is made of clay and would probably have been severely
damaged or crushed by a machine with that power and weight.
“It is also interesting to not the clay balls found at the same general depth, close to the solid bedrock. This might
suggest that a variety of material had descended fairly rapidly through the deposit, by a mechanism currently unknown but
by no means mysterious or supernatural, to end up at a boundary through which it could not pass.”
said he supports his arguments on the fact that “there is not one other single artifact of human manufacture from the
whole of North or South America that is anywhere near as early as this.”
we explain a carved stone mortar and pestle found during the cutting of Montezuma Tunnel through Table Mountain in California
in 1877 that has been dated as old as 33 to 55 million years?
clearly human manufactured artifacts were found between 1,400 and 1,500 feet from the mouth of the tunnel, and between 200
and 300 feet beyond the edge of the solid lava. The job superintendent, J. H. Neale, also said several spear heads about a
foot in length also were found in the same area.
believe it would have been impossible for relics like this to have accidentally found their way into the heart of this mountain
before the lava cap was formed. The position of the items suggests extreme antiquity, even before grazing and carnivorous
mammals were believed to have evolved.
another odd artifact found in Fitzpatrick-Matthews own back yard, so-to-speak, is a shell with a human face carved in it that
was found in the stratified deposits of the Red Craig limestone vein found deep under England, Wales and Scotland. Geologists
estimate its Late Pliocene age between 2 and 2.5 million years.
can we explain such finds? There is a belief among mystics and certain spiritual teachers that humans have existed on this
planet for a very long time. Some say some of us are very ancient souls and have reincarnated over and over again, either
on this planet or in some parallel universe, and that we may, if we choose, continue to do so even after this planet is no
