New Look at Coso Artifact

The “Coso Artifact” is a concretion with what looks something like a sparkplug embedded within. The concretion of marine creatures that surrounds it would normally be considered 500,000 years old.

This one of the first oopart or anomalous artifacts that Creationists trot out when speaking of anomalous finds as a possible pre-flood artifact. Consequently, it is one of those artifacts that Atheists are ready to attack vigorously. Usually, it is dimissively identified as just an old Champions spark plug and not a pre-flood artifact.

The point is this, because it looks like a spark plug to me. Is it an unexplainable technology in a 500,000 year old concretion–as dated by geologists (or at least very old) or is it proof that these concretions can form in a very, very few years, wreaking havock with many geological assumptions?

In any case, our friend, Clifford Paiva of BSM Research Associates, took a new look at the artifact on his website;”

1. Just some data regarding the electrical, marine fossil-encrusted rock found some years ago near Owens Dry Lake. Folks seemed determined to be specific concerning application of a Champion spark plug…1920s vintage…to the artifact. Therefore I did some preliminary were with some of the available frames.

2. Very low direct correlation to a Champion 1920s spark plug. Even after trying several types…the same result.

3. That the artifact is electrical seems certain.

4. That the artifact is encrusted externally with marine fossils, and internally possessing a nail and washer, seems to indicate a possible pre-deluvian artifact.

5. One should remember that spark plugs are predominantly used for internal, chemical combustion engines. If the electrical device is a spark plug, then such engines were in existence before the Deluge. This constitutes a significant stretch…hence more study concerning this point is required.

These comments were sent in response to a prior post which itself was an update. Wouter thought he might have found part of the complex described in the antique news article… The prior post is here:Prior Post

“If Wouter can play with Google maps, so could I. It took me a bit longer, his instructions were not correct.

Attached is an image from a topo map for the area, an official U.S. Geological Survey image and at as close to the same size as I could with Yahoo maps, with an image so close to the Google image, even
to the same time of day, that I suspect it may be the same.

As can be seen, this anomaly is near the bottom of a canyon, and would not be visible more than a mile at most from any angle, in an area where 60 mile views are usual. The area is rugged enough that the last mile may have to be done on foot, if not more.

The Geologic Survey’s and Google Maps’ images are different enough that it puzzles me.

….I have been able to verify that this image appears on both maps.google.com and maps.yahoo.com . On how many other satellite pictures does it appear?

As I have sent you, the topo map does not show the structure, and the Geological Survey photo that came with the topo map doesn’t even follow the topo map (Google and Yahoo images are closer to the topo map).

It appears to me that the Geological Survey photo was crudely distorted as if to hide something.” K.R.
