There have been various archaeological discoveries that science cannot explain
We have stumbled upon numerous findings over the years that have ended up being just that, such findings have caught the attention of researchers but no accurate explanations have been published.
Like the infamous 240-million-year-old microchip, this 300 million years old screw is most likely another curious crinoid.
Discovery of the 300 million years old screw
The anomalous artifact was discovered by the Russian scientists by chance as they were conducting an analysis after the fall of a meteorite in the Kaluga region and they found a mysterious object that similar to a modern-day screw.
The discovery of the artifact was baffling and the researchers did not know what to think of it.
Did it come from space?
Is this screw evidence of ancient civilizations that lived on Earth millions of years ago?
Or is it just another fossilized sea-creature?
Mystery behind the Screw
The fossil around the screw is about 2 cm long.
It was found in a scientific voyage that was conducted by a group called the Kosmopoisk group, a scientific research group responsible for conducting UFO-related research, cryptozoological research, and paranormal pseudoscience.
At first, they suited up and went to look for the remains of the meteorite that impacted the Kaluga region in Russia.
All of a sudden, they came across the screw, and interestingly, after paleontological analysis, it turned out that the age of the stone was somewhere between 300 and 320 million years.
The artifact was analyzed using X-Ray technology, which provided researchers with another shock, allegedly another screw was present inside it.
Many scientists have tried explaining the origin and details of the screw.
A few scientists suggested that it could be the remains of a Crinoids (Marine animals that make up the class Crinoidea of the echinoderms).
Many refuse to believe we are looking at Crinoids even though this is the most accurate explication.
Various theories have been said regarding the screw.
Skeptics love to debunk discoveries like this one, offering a much simpler answer, suggesting that it’s nothing, probably the remains of an old factory, vehicle, or anything else that can make you, the reader look elsewhere for answers, paying no heed to details such as the age, and region where it was found.
So what exactly is it?
Is it just another crinoid?
or a piece of evidence that extraterrestrial life was present on Earth millions of years ago?
Or is there a possibility that it might be proof of ancient civilizations in the past that possessed very advanced technology?
How is it possible that a screw could have survived ‘intact’ for 300 million years?
What is its metallic composition?
These are several of the questions that still need to be answered in order to get a full picture of what this object really is.
However, for now, the mystery of the 300 million years screw remains unfolded.
