Concretion or geode, it's solid rock. Does mud do that in less than 100 years ?

And we still haven't disposed of the electromagnetic field aspect, ruling out "spark plug."

Of course sea shells are found on mountain tops .
But that does not mean that they are necessarily associated with the artefact .

What you are quoting are the accounts of the finders and the anonymous geologist who never published the findings .
No evidence for any of it .

But the evidence we do have shows that the artefact was a 1920's spark contained within a concretion .
Despite the artefact having been in the possession of one the "discoverers " ,which he valued at $25,000 ( what is the real value of 1920's spark plug in a concretion $30 ?), it's whereabouts are currently unknown .
You believe the finders story , fine .
I have a bit of the true cross for sale if your'e interested .

You're a joke, T.

The report dashes your position, so question the publisher of it.

If the publisher's solid, question the integrity of the reporter . . .

Rinse and repeat as often as necessary until people tire of reasoning with you and pointing out the significance of what you keep ignoring until you are the last man standing. Then declare victory on that pretext.

No matter what, you can always tag a question onto the end of it as if this somehow invalidates everything preceding it. I.e., the O. J. Simpson Defense.

All the evidence points to the "artefact" being nothing more than a 1920's spark plug in a concretion , the hick(s) who were trying to sell it for $25,000 were maybe not as daft as those bought the BS .

How much would you have paid for it ?
What do you think it was if not the obvious ?
Still have a problem with sea shells on mountain tops ?

When they are supposed to have gotten there by some natural process within the last 100 years, yes.

And so does anyone else with a functioning brain.

Anyone with a functioning brain realises that they didn't get there in the past 100 years and there were no sea shells associated with the object .

Brad Steiger highlighted the artefact in “Mysteries of Time and Space” ,have a look at his other titles , http://alynepustanio.com/paranormalbooks.php . He taught creative writing .Contrast that with the those who have written about the artefact ,sceptically , qualified anthropologists , archaeologists and geologists .

The geologist who described the artefact as being encased in a geode and possibly ancient is anonymous ,(s)he has never come forward , and never wrote a report .
This contrasts with a named qualified geologist , Paul Heinrich ,who did write a report on it and pointed out that it wasn’t a geode .

The three shopkeepers /rock hunters , one of whom was later attempting to sell the artefact for $25,000 , claimed that it was an example of ante deluvian technology . The object is now missing . One of finders who was still alive c.1999 would not talk about the object .
This contrasts with Chad Windham, president of Spark Plug Collectors of America who said he was certain that it was a Champion spark plug from the 1920’s . And researchers comparing photographs conclude that it is identical to the 1920’s Champion spark plug .

Not one case of anyone with any expertise in disciplines related to the object , one of which should maybe be grifting , considers the object to be anything other than a spark plug in a concretion .Which contrasts with the those who believe it is ancient technology ,is there anyone who believes that , with any expertise in geology , spark plugs or grifting ?

Why no response to the points ?
You never explained your view of the evidence pointing to it being a spark plug , the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the spark plug , the finders , their story ,
the missing geologists and ultimately the missing spark plug etc .
You also never answered " What do you think it was if not the obvious ?"


An example of alien or ante deluvian technology for $25,000 is a snip .
I'm certainly not on my own when it comes to being sceptical about the object .
Nhow it never sold , even the believers wouldn't put their money where their mouth was .
