Hundreds of years ago, after more than 5,000 years of continuous development, human civilization finally ushered in a huge change. This time of revolution allowed mankind to enter the industrial age from the handicraft era, opened the door to science and technology, and allowed us to embark on the path of technological development.
The power of science and technology is undoubtedly great. It has allowed mankind to achieve leap again and again in just a few hundred years. Especially the speed of technological development in the past 100 years is so fast that it makes people feel like they are in a dream. same. Perhaps for modern young people, they will not feel the impact of a century of technological development on mankind.
But for those long-lived elders who have lived for hundreds of years, they are the most able to truly feel the tremendous changes brought about by technology in their lives. It can be said that the civilization development of mankind for more than 5,000 years is far inferior to the achievements achieved in just a few hundred years. This is the charm of technology.
With the help of scientific and technological power, human beings are constantly deepening their understanding of the world, and they are also constantly exploring many secrets in the history of the earth. Among the many mysteries, scientists have been thinking about a question: Before the emergence of human beings, did other intelligent civilizations appear on the earth?
We must know that it took only about 3 million years for humans to evolve from ancient apes to intelligent civilization. This time is very short for the evolution of life, so does such a result tell us: The time for the evolution of biology to wisdom is very short? Some people may say that humans are uniquely endowed by nature. We can spend such a short period of time to evolve into intelligent life, which other creatures cannot do.
Many people think of the era when dinosaurs dominated the earth 65 million years ago. You must know that dinosaurs have lived on the earth for 160 million years, and they have not evolved into intelligent life in such a long time. Therefore, many people believe that it only took millions of years for human beings to evolve into intelligent life, and other organisms cannot replicate it.
If you think so, you are wrong. There are two choices on the path of life evolution. One is to evolve toward power, become a power creature, and then dominate the earth, such as dinosaurs. The other path is the evolution of wisdom. This is a path of evolution that is difficult in the early stage and easy in the later stage. It is generally possible for those creatures that have difficulty in survival and cannot survive to choose this path.
But once living things embark on the evolution of wisdom, they will evolve very quickly, and they can become intelligent beings in a short period of time. Such speed is not unique to human beings. How other mammals choose this path can also become intelligent life in millions of years.
It is this kind of thinking, combined with the earth’s long life history of 4 billion years, that makes scientists have to explore and study the problems that may have existed in prehistoric civilization. Of course, to prove the existence of prehistoric civilization, it is useless to guess. We have to find some real traces of existence. If prehistoric civilizations existed on the earth, it is normal to leave some relics of prehistoric civilizations.
On the way of exploring prehistoric civilization, mankind has indeed discovered some so-called “relics of prehistoric civilization”. The discovery of these “prehistoric civilization relics” caused a shock in the scientific community at that time, but after more rigorous scientific research judgments, it was discovered that these “prehistoric civilization relics” were all fake. Four of them are the most representative. They are all scientific lies. Even so, some people still believe them. Next, let’s take a look at these four so-called “prehistoric civilization relics” lies.
1. Nuclear reactors 2 billion years ago, nuclear reactors are not unfamiliar to everyone. Nuclear energy can be said to be the most powerful of the energy sources found and applied by mankind. In addition to manufacturing nuclear weapons, nuclear energy can also be used in various aspects of mankind, such as nuclear power plants. To use nuclear energy, we need to build nuclear reactors.
Because uranium has a very long half-life, it is also the most important direction for scientists to look for traces of prehistoric civilization. If prehistoric civilization has also entered the age of science and technology, then the construction of nuclear reactors is a matter of course. Even if civilization disappears later, nuclear reactors will not disappear completely. As long as we can discover such things, we can prove the existence of prehistoric civilization.
On June 2, 1972, French physicist Bouzigue accidentally discovered a problem with the abundance of uranium 235 and 238 during a random inspection of a batch of nuclear fuel, which was 0.003% less than the standard value. Bouziger notified the French Atomic Energy Commission of the matter, and the commission concluded that the source of the matter lies in the ore-producing area-the Oklo uranium mine.
Scientists carefully investigated the Oklo uranium deposit and found a large number of nuclear fission reaction products in the deposit, and a nuclear reactor was also found here. By calculating the decay cycle of uranium, scientists believe that the reactor has been in existence for at least 2 billion years.
The discovery of a nuclear reactor 2 billion years ago can be imagined to have caused a sensation. At that time, many people believed that this was the real evidence for the existence of prehistoric civilization, so was this nuclear reactor really built by prehistoric civilization?
Later, after more rigorous research and analysis, scientists believed that this nuclear reactor was too rudimentary and not man-made, but rather a naturally formed nuclear reactor. Although scientists have explained this nuclear reactor that it is not a man-made object, many people still believe that it is a product of prehistoric civilization 2 billion years ago.
Two or three hundred million years ago, the hammer was a very common tool in rural areas. After mankind entered the civilized era, with the ironmaking technology, the tool gradually became available. And human civilization is only about 5,000 years old, but in 1936, in New London, a man named Max Hahn discovered a strange-looking stone by the river, and the stone was wrapped in iron. hammer.
Experts at the time identified that this hammer was at least 300 million years old, and 300 million years ago was the Devonian, an era when insects dominated the earth. Dinosaurs have not yet appeared, and mammals have not yet appeared. If this hammer is 300 million years ago, then there is a high probability that it is a product of prehistoric civilization.
So is this hammer really 300 million years ago? Later, through research and analysis, scientists believed that it looked exactly like the hammer used by local miners more than 100 years ago. Moreover, it takes less than 300 million years to wrap the rock to form what it is today, and it may take only a few decades to form on the premise that it is rich in minerals.
3. Ancient batteries. I believe that all my friends know that batteries are the products of the technological age. In ancient times, batteries were unlikely to appear. However, in the 1930s, archaeologists discovered a strange clay pot about the size of a palm with a metal tube inserted behind the wall of a house in Baghdad.
After the scientists poured the acidic liquid in, they were surprised to find that it turned out to be a battery. Such a discovery shocked the scientific community. People in ancient times mastered the battery manufacturing technology? It was impossible to think about it, so some people pointed the finger at prehistoric civilization.
So is this really an ancient battery? Scientists later found out that this battery can only emit a tiny current and cannot be used in actual production and life. So what is its function? Scientists believe that it may be used by ancient people to perform sacrificial activities, allowing believers to feel the existence of “gods” in partial paralysis.
We must know that the ancients were actually very clever, otherwise human civilization would not develop so fast. It is not a strange thing that people in ancient times discovered some applications of electric current unintentionally. We must know that there were many incredible and great inventions in our country in ancient times, even in the modern era.
Fourth, the crystal skull, the legend of the crystal skull, I believe many friends have heard of it. In the “Crystal Skull Mystery”, it said: According to the story passed down by the Presbyterian Church, there are 52 in total. There are 13 Mayans, and other sacred places scattered around the world, including many other indigenous tribes in the Americas, as well as tribes such as Tibet and Australia.
According to records, the first human to discover a crystal skeleton in the world was Mitchell Heggis, an explorer from England. In 1926, in the remains of the Mayan civilization, Mitchell Heggis and his daughter Anna dug out the crystal skeleton from the ground.
According to experts at the time, this crystal skull is at least 4,000 years old, and its surface is smooth and natural without artificial traces. It looks like a natural product. People speculate that it may be a biological skull. So what kind of creature can have such a special skull and look exactly like a human skull?
Some people speculate that it may be some kind of mysterious skull of intelligent creatures in prehistoric times. Because there is no specific answer, this crystal skull was placed in a museum and is hailed as one of the great archaeological discoveries of the 20th century.
By the end of the 20th century, a group of studies worthy of taking it out of the museum, used more high-precision instruments for in-depth inspections. This test found a problem. It turned out that it was not the skull of ancient people, but the skull of modern Europeans.
At the same time, scientists found a large number of traces polished by modern machines on the surface of the crystal skull. Through powerful instrument testing, the true face of the crystal skull was finally discovered. It is just a modern product, a prank by some people, and a big scam in the history of archaeology.
The above four so-called major discoveries of prehistoric civilization have been proven by rigorous science to be frauds and lies. However, there is still no progress in the exploration of prehistoric civilization, and no traces that can really prove their existence have been found. Perhaps, prehistoric civilization itself does not exist, and human beings are the only intelligent civilization that has appeared on the earth so far.
