The mystery of the 300-million-year-old wheel and unusual car tracks around the world

In 2008, a remarkable discovery was made in a coal mine in the city of Donetsk, Ukraine. An ancient wheel was found in a coal mine, but it could not be separated because it was stuck to the sandstone, and it was 300 million years old.

While drilling the coke layer at a depth of 900m above ground, tunnel workers were surprised to find the fossil of a wheel on the tunnel ceiling.

Fortunately, at that time Deputy Police Chief V.V. Kruzhilin photographed this fossil wheel. Mine foreman S. Kasatkin shared the photo and made the news public. After that, other people were not allowed to continue exploring the tunnel to study the mysterious wheel more closely. Only photos and accounts of a group of Ukrainian miners remain as evidence of the existence of strange wheels.

Although the strata in which the fossil wheel was found cannot be clearly determined, the Rostov area around Donetsk lies on Carboniferous rocks from 360-300 million years ago, and provided coke originating from mid to late Carboniferous period. This shows that the age of the other wheels is about 300 million years old. Meaning the wheels got stuck there hundreds of millions of years ago and turned into sediment over time.

The following is an excerpt from a letter written by foreman S. Kasatkin (translated from Ukrainian) regarding his confirmation of unusual wheel tracks discovered by miners in 2008:

‘This finding is not a publicity stunt. In 2008, we, as a team of engineers and workers, asked the mine director to invite scientists to examine the object in detail, but the director, at the behest of the mine owner, prohibited the discussion. discussed this, instead ordering work to be accelerated and the area rapidly exploited with mining equipment. As a result, this object and a smaller one found during subsequent work became stuck in the tunnel, unable to be removed for study. Fortunately, someone, despite the director’s prohibition, took a photo of the object. I know the people who first discovered these tracks and the people who photographed them. We have dozens of witnesses. As you know, entry into the mine is strictly restricted (dangerous due to sudden emissions) and getting a permit [to enter the mine] is quite difficult. The wheel was stuck in the sandstone on the tunnel ceiling. The workers tried to separate the object with a hammer, but the sandstone was too hard and they were afraid of damaging the object, so they left it there. The mine is now closed (officially since 2009) and the object is inaccessible – because the equipment has been dismantled and the soil levels have been flooded.”

Along with handwritten testimony from eyewitnesses, photographs remain the only evidence of these unusual wheels, but it is worth studying even though it may lead to truths beyond our understanding. . Because if the above photos are real, then people will have to ask: How could an artificial wheel get stuck in such an ancient geological layer, when mainstream science has not even discovered it yet? development?

Ancient traces

In fact, evidence of the existence of prehistoric vehicles has been found in several other parts of the world, such as fossilized vehicle tracks in France, Spain, Italy, Malta, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and even North America. Among them is the prehistoric site Misrah Ghar il-Kbir, Maltese for ‘big cave’, located in Siggiewi, near the Dingli cliffs in Malta.

At this famous site, the ‘car ruts’ deeply embedded in the limestone have amazed everyone who comes here. Likewise, some unusual car tracks were also found on the island of Sicily, at the Greek hall known as the Opera House of Syracuse. Most archaeologists have suggested that the tracks in Malta were probably made by the Sicilians, who arrived in Malta around 2000 BC, at the beginning of the Bronze Age.

Besides, there are also many such tracks found in Turkey, a few in Sofca stretching an area of about 16 – 72 km, and also in Cappadocia. Many ruts discovered around the world have caused a lot of controversy about their purpose, age and origin. Because many car tracks are associated with megalithic structures, especially in Malta, and many car tracks are submerged in the sea in that area, many researchers have concluded that these fossil tracks have signs of antiquity.

Dr. Alexander Koltypin is a geologist and director of the Natural Sciences Research Center at Moscow’s Independent International University of Ecology and Politics. He spent a lot of time visiting these locations and comparing them looking for similarities.

Koltypin wrote: “The first time I saw rock or fossilized vehicle tracks (commonly known as ruts) on the surface of the Neogene plain was in May 2014 (in Central Anatolia Turkey). . They are located in the development zone of volcanic rocks in the middle and late Mesozoic (Miocene, lasting from about 23.03 to 5.33 million years ago) and according to analysis, the age of the volcanic rocks nearby dates back to 12-14 million years in the middle of the Mesozoic Era.

While mainstream researchers believe that these tracks are simply the remains of wheeled vehicles pulled by donkeys or camels, Mr. Koltypin has other ideas. “I would never accept [those explanations],” he said of the usual explanations. I myself will always remember… there are many other inhabitants of our planet who have been wiped out in history.”

When he measured the width and length of the tracks in the Phrygian Valley, he believed they were made by vehicles similar in length to modern vehicles with tires about 23 centimeters wide. With the impressive depth of the ruts in the rocks, it couldn’t have been a small car. Koltypin believes that the vehicle that created this mark must have been much heavier.

He hypothesized that the civilization driving the heavy vehicles that created these tracks could also be the owners of similar roads and underground complexes scattered around the entire Mediterranean. more than 12 million years ago.

Mr. Koltypin affirmed that the heavy mineral deposits covering the vehicle tracks and erosion showed that they date back to a very long time ago; At the same time, the surrounding underground cities, irrigation systems, wells, etc., according to him, are also millions of years old.

Clearly, more research is needed to clarify the age and origin of vehicle tracks discovered in many parts of the world. In-depth investigation will also reveal more accurate explanations, possibly leading to mysterious ruins of a certain prehistoric civilization that humans have never known before, like Mr. Alexander Koltypin mentioned. .

In any case, the appearance of fossil wheels in Ukraine also suggests the fact that ancient people may have had much more advanced technology and techniques than we understand about them.
