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 Prefecture.

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.”

Chinese scientists 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 being stumped.

"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."
