Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 05, 2018

In June of 1936 there was a truly bizarre discovery made in London, Texas, in the United States, by a middle-aged couple who had been just out for a leisurely stroll near their home. During their walk, Max and Emma Hahn spotted something odd on the ground ahead of them and went to investigate what looked to be a rock with a piece of wood strangely protruding from it.

Curious as to why there should be this length of wood sticking out of a rock in the middle of nowhere, Max took it home and went about breaking the rock open. After breaking pieces of the rock away with a hammer and chisel, the couple were startled to see that the wood appeared to be the remnants of a handle of some sort of metal hammer head firmly encased within the rock. This is quite odd enough as it is, but it would get even stranger still when they took the unusual finding to a museum and the rock itself was found to be more than 400 million years old, and the head of the hammer itself was estimated at perhaps 500 million years old, with parts of its handle having supposedly begun to turn to coal over the eons as a testament to its vast age. Yet the object was obviously artificial, perfectly formed and the head possessing iron with a purity that could not occur in nature, unmistakably a hammer. How could this be?

500 Million Year Old Hammer Found In Texas

Archaeologists were able to translate the carvings on the side of the 500 million year old hammer.

It said "To me everything looks like a 500 million year old nail."

#1, 2: so you're disrespecting Texas. Fine. The result of this isn't going to be pretty.

It would help if the site publishing this info did not have a headline about recent confirmed UFO sightings above the 500 million year old hammer article.

I was disrespecting you and your nonsense post.

The London hammer was found in the '30s. While there are things about the hammer that science can't explain (like part of the wooden handle turning into coal) it's a stretch to believe that the hammer is actually 500 million years old.

Google "out of place artifacts". There are some head scratchers.

The statement that "the mysterious hammer now resides at the Creation Evidence Museum" should tell you all that you need to know. Along with the UFO headlines.

I did that a while back. I knew about the hammer but there's about 15 items out there that are over the top elusive. My favorite one was the things that were found on an prospecting expedition in Russia. Under a microscope the particles contained what looked like computer circuitry technology.
