The Shigir Idol: Russian Wooden Figure Dated At 11,000 Years Old

1bec1ab0-4e70-11e5-8f39-235a41650419_shigiridolWe have often discussed the difficulty in maintaining the creationist view of the Earth being only a few thousand years old when carbon dating and other techniques show billions of years of existence. A new such conflicting data point has emerged from Russia where a peat bog yielded a wooden idol and is 11,000 years old. What is particularly cool is that this oldest wooden figure contains a code of some ancient language that has yet to be deciphered.

The Shigir Idol is twice as old as the Pyramids and Stonehenge. It was discovered some 125 years ago but was recently found to be much older than previously thought by scientists in Mannheim, Germany using Accelerated Mass Spectrometry.

The intriguing secret code makes the find particularly exciting.

By the way, does the face remind you of a later piece of art?

  1. that is only if there is nothing bigger can you believe in anything goes. Of course there is something bigger….it is either ourself (humans) or a god. If it is humans….as in survival….then gays don’t help. If it for a god….well none have revealed same sex marriage in their texts…..so gays don’t help. Why again is there gay marriage?

  2. dave and max 1….could it just be a dirty trick. A dirty trick you would love your off spring and parents until the day is long….and they would love their spouse and kids that much….if there wasn’t more? The whole emotion of love proves there is more. More to evolution than just propelling a species…..if not what grounds do queers have? If we exist simply to propel humans as an entity…..gays are a drag…..there must be ‘more’ than our walk on this planet. As evidenced by gays who don’t help a biological entity conquer the planet. If they are born gay…..then love is trancentdant…..to some ghost. As then is anything. For there is nothing. Or so tptb want us to believe. But the is something. So we believe. For if there is nothing. That effing sucks.
