300 million-year-old machine part found ?

A controversial story from Russia suggests that a prehistoric machine part is extraterrestrial in origin.

The claim surrounds an aluminium object that was said to have been discovered in a piece of coal by a resident of Vladivostok when he was lighting his fire. The object was taken to be studied by scientists in the Primorye region who allegedly concluded that it was 300 million years old, meaning that it came in to being well before humans walked the planet. Described as an "aluminium gear", the artifact could have only been created through industrial manufacturing methods which has lead to the outlandish suggestion that it is in fact alien in origin.

The authenticity of this story, unsurprisingly, remains sketchy at best. No definitive evaluation of the object has been made available for general study and it is questionable that an object made of aluminium could have survived for 300 million years. While the claim is undoubtedly interesting, for the moment there are too many unknowns involved to conclude that the story represents a discovery of genuine significance.

"The Voice of Russia and other Russian sources are reporting that a 300 million year old piece of aluminum machinery has been found in Vladivostok."

I read through the article and this thread and find this article quite lacking in substance. Some of the issues have already been discussed in this thread, but I will go over my own thoughts on this, some of which have been mentioned. The article claims that the piece is imbedded in 300My old coal. That is the dating. It hardly matters if this is 1My or 500My to be a significant find. It is easy to find such claims from creationist sites which trumpet reports from places such as the American Antiquarian and their fun facts about Civil War buttons found in coal. The object itself was not dated ... [More]

I love the expression "experts say..." It is generally a sign that some industrial strength BS is on the way.

I love the expression "experts say..." It is generally a sign that some industrial strength BS is on the way. Especially if you google said experts and they don't exist. Or, if no names are given at all. [Discussing the fate of the Ark]Maj. Eaton: We have top men working on it now. Indiana: Who? Maj. Eaton: Top... men.

Either old tech or some ones messing with temporal distortion or.... its all made up,. Checked this out a while back and one of the images looked doctored to me, as though a rough Photoshop job had been done. The pixels around the blend between the 'metal' and the coal was larger than the pixels of the coal it was 'supposedly' buried in. And yes, I am proficient in the use of high end digital applications.... But still, it would be fascinating if there was some truth to these revelations...
