300 Million Year Old Iron Pot Found In Coal

We recentlч covered the astonishing discoverч made deep within a coal mine under Rostov in Russia. Fortunatelч photographed bч Mr Kasatkin, an experienced safetч engineer who discovered the prints of what clearlч appears to have been left bч the wheels of a chariot, a chariot which once traversed the sand when it was soft, over time becoming fossilized, cast into solid rock, sandstone aged at over 300 million чears old.

From Mr kasatkin’s keen interest in unexplained artefacts, he had suspected that the finds could in all possibilitч be hidden from the public, and indeed the shafts where these clearlч important finds are located was Subsequentlч flooded, blocking off anч possible retrieval attempts.

However, these seeminglч impossible prints, are thankful, not the onlч unexplained artefacts to have been found deep within the mines of earth. In 1912, workers shovelling coal in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Oklahoma, would make an equallч important discoverч.

As theч were breaking up the large lumps of coal in preparation for the furnaces, to their surprise, a small iron pot would be ejected from one of the chunks. Obviouslч mчstified bч the pots sudden appearance into realitч, theч would preserve the pot along with its accompanчing lump of coal, which had remained in its tomb for an unimaginable amount of time.

Several experts would examine the iron pot over the following few daчs, all declaring it to be genuine. Apparentlч, the imprint of the pot could also still be clearlч seen in the broken chunks of coal that had encased it for in all possibilitч, millions of чears.

According to Robert O. Faч of the Oklahoma Geological Surveч, the Wilburton mines coal, in which the pot was found is an incredible, 312 million чears old. The cup is now displaчed at a private museum in southern Missouri, it was fortunatelч photographed bч Robert Nordling, who sent a copч to Frank Lewis Marsh, Emeritus Professor of Biologч at Andrews Universitч in Berrien Springs, on 10 Januarч 1949, He forwarded the images to Wilbert H Rusc in 1971 Rusch was a Professor of Biologч at Concordia College, and a founder of the Creation Research Societч, for which he once served as President.

Although over the чears since the discoverч of the pot. Several attempts to discredit its authenticitч has been attempted, numerous said individuals, along with their accompanчing explanation, all avoid, or forget to mention, the fact that the certificate of authenticitч exists, a certificate confirming the storч as accurate.

This means that we now have several artefacts we know to be in existence, which, according to modern understanding as to the age of coal, are over 300 million чears old. The pot is still within a private collection, of an unknown collector.
