Footprints UFO engraving

50 posts in this topic

Ancient footprints on a rock and a nearby engraving of a mysterious flying object are causing a stir in a small Indian village.

According to the Epoch Times, Geologist Nitish Priyadarshi is studying the large footprints in Piska Nagri village, on the outskirts of Ranchi City in Jharkahnd State.

The footprints, which are 30cm long and 12cm wide, look like they were worn by someone in wooden sandals.

SORRY IF THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED.

Now how anyone calls that a UFO is beyond me

quote:

There have been many discoveries of ancient footprints around the world. Many of them are thousands of years old and are both natural (left by ancient inhabitants) and carved, denoting some meaning.

The Romans carved footprints before a journey as protective rites. Footprints were carved upon leaving for a journey and as thanksgiving for a safe return. In Ireland and northern Europe, rock footprints were closely associated with kingship or chieftainship.

Thanks Seeder that was better than the original report. (I was kind of liking the idea about sky gods though)

The "flying object" looks sort of like something with wings.

I did a quick look up on ancient Indian symbols, and it looks like many other things too

Yes, it does look similar to some of their ancient symbols, but to me it looks like the angels we used to draw as children. Round head, two wings, and a bell-shaped body if you look closely at the picture, though some of it looks like it has been worn off. I guess it's a matter of perception.

Granite is an Igneous rock, and no sandals would survive even close proximity to it whilst cooling down. Therefore these "imprints" are clearly a later sculpturing by the indiginous population. IMO

Perception indeed, I dont know for sure but I assume the Indians dont have the biblical angels, and the form they took, as in Christianity?

Hmmm, those "footprints" kind of reminds me of 60's cartoon characters: Extra credit if you can name them!

And this means what in the general flow of things? Do you have facts to offer?

Thus far, the general trend of the thread has been away from the AA theory et al. In fact, the OP does mention them being carved and not actual footprints as well as the concept of legend. We both know legend isn't fact or even close to it. Unfortunately, we both also know the woo-woo crowd will latch onto this and add to the "massive evidence base" of AA. Where's Zoser when we could use a good laugh?

It is interesting that someone took a great deal of time to cut footprints into stone. Could be simply something akin to people who now put footprint decals in the back of their vehicle windows indicating family/siblings. But, humans have a innate bent to the spiritual, so I would be inclined to agree with the caption positing local deities.

"looks like something" is as good as nothing. This is what the ancient aliens series is built upon, speculation.

Not ancient astronauts again. Love this crap. "Why are there architectural similarities in many ancient civilizations scatter across the globe. There has to be a common source for all these concepts that appear over and over again." Then they pull ancient astronauts out of their backsides. Well, there is a common source: human beings were at every location, using human technology, human geometry, and human minds and concepts to build what they built. Of course they are similar.

That object looks oddly like the shape of an angel, maybe it was Romans who carved the footprints and the angel shape ?

Here is a link to murals of angels in China that had Roman influence:

http://www.china.org.cn/english/MATERIAL/189977.htm

Both Chinese and foreign archaeologists believe that the angel murals reflect a Roman influence, indicating deep cultural exchanges between China and the future countries of Europe during the Western Han Dynasty.

how does anyone know its actual orientation? Could actually be sideways on too. In fact it looks like the black streaks (outline) continue downwards in the picture, can this mean its a bigger carving but someone just selectively cropped the shot?

Who knows...

Agreed, there looks to be something underneath, not a very good pic for a still.
