150,000-year-old Pipes Baffling Scientists in China?
I am inclined to think that this is a natural phenomena and possibly
far older than suggested. In the meantime, unknown elements are not
possible but mistranslation is. More obvious is that the
investigation has hardly been complete.
Without an inspection, Mother Nature is surely able to swanp a
mangrove swamp with ample long tubular roots and with concentraed
salt produce such a mineral structure. Thus we have the physical
setting in place for just such an event.
Dry it all out afterward, wash surplus salt away and we have a desert
of pipes. Have a few humans come along to collect a few for possible
resale and we are in business.
Now show me why I am wrong!
Did Ancient Aliens
Make the 150,000-year-old Pipes Baffling Scientists in China?
Ancient tree roots?
Fissures that ancient iron magma flowed into? An alien creation?
The origin of
mysterious pipe-like structures found in a remote region of China is
shrouded in the tubes’ 150,000-year history. That is one thing that
scientists have agreed on—that these cylinders, which fill
three caves in a pyramid in Qinghai Province pre-date
known human technological advances by a good 120,000 years.
The pipes also flow
under the lakebed and onto the shore, according to the
Epoch Times, a website that chronicles strange and inexplicable
phenomena. Some are smaller than a toothpick, theEpoch Times says,
while others look, well, pipelike.
According to what we
know of science and human history, humans did not arrive in the
region until 30,000 years ago, the EpochTimes said. Indeed, so
strange are these formations that they’ve been dubbed “ET relics”
locally. Tour buses take the curious and the exploratory to view the
peculiar shapes at the Alien Ruins, as they are billed by tourism
officials in Delingha, the third largest city in the province, about
25 miles away. While they may turn out to be a natural
phenomena—they resemble formations found in the so-called Navajo
Sandstone region of the southwestern United States, for one thing—the
pipes have the potential to turn conventional knowledge on its head.
“If they were made
by humans, history as it is commonly viewed would have to be
reevaluated,” theEpoch Timessaid.
If that does turn out
to be the case, it would not be the first time that modern notions of
evolution were turned on their head.
The ruins are near the
saltwater Tuosu Lake that has a freshwater twin. Delingha City sits
at the bottom of the Qaidam Basin, part of the Tibetan Autonomous
“On the south bank
of the lake stands several pyramid-like mountains at the edge of the
Gobi desert, each 50 to 60 meters high with yellow-gray sides,”
explained theGlobal Times. “There is a grotto in the
shape of a triangle on the side of one of the pyramid-mountains that
is the Alien Ruins.”
have been investigating the site since 2002, according to the news
agencyXinghua, in an article noted by theEpoch Times. Testing
of the compounds in the pipes revealed ferric oxide, silicon dioxide
and calcium oxide, Xinhua reported—but eight
percent was of unknown origin, with elements not present in the
periodic table of the elements. The same analysis proved
the pipes’ age, because the silicon dioxide and calcium oxide were
created from the iron’s reaction with sandstone.
Scientists admit to
"There are no
signs of life at all in the wide lake and the sharp mountains are
also lifeless, as if they have experienced a massive fire,” said
Qinghai archaeologist Bai Yu to the Global Times. “It seems that
the scenery here did not originate from Earth, but from other planets
in outer space."
