Did Ancient Aliens Make the 150,000-year-old Pipes Baffling Scientists in China?
Ancient tree roots? Fissures that ancient iron magma flowed into? An alien creation?
The origin of mysterious pipe-like structures found in a remote region of China is shrouded in the tubes’ 150,000-year history. That is one thing that scientists have agreed on—that these cylinders, which fill three caves in a pyramid in Qinghai Province pre-date known human technological advances by a good 120,000 years.
The pipes also flow under the lakebed and onto the shore, according to the Epoch Times, a website that chronicles strange and inexplicable phenomena. Some are smaller than a toothpick, the Epoch Times says, while others look, well, pipelike.
According to what we know of science and human history, humans did not arrive in the region until 30,000 years ago, the Epoch Times said. Indeed, so strange are these formations that they’ve been dubbed “ET relics” locally. Tour buses take the curious and the exploratory to view the peculiar shapes at the Alien Ruins, as they are billed by tourism officials in Delingha, the third largest city in the province, about 25 miles away. While they may turn out to be a natural phenomena—they resemble formations found in the so-called Navajo Sandstone region of the southwestern United States, for one thing—the pipes have the potential to turn conventional knowledge on its head.
“If they were made by humans, history as it is commonly viewed would have to be reevaluated,” the Epoch Times said.
If that does turn out to be the case, it would not be the first time that modern notions of evolution were turned on their head.
