Could these mysterious ancient tracks in the Phrygian Valley of Turkey have been created by an intelligent race? A Russian geologist says yes.
I want to believe, really I do, but there’s just so much doubt mixed in with the testimonies, the discoveries and the images. I get discouraged sometimes. It seems like the sheer objects of “Proof” would be proof enough. Unfortunately, most think that, until their own eyes have seen the truth, the truth is a lie. So be it, I still look to my hope which adds to the large stacks of accounts, pictures and questionable history, and there is another reason why….
To find the truth, or at least to collect more evidence, sometimes we must travel back in time. For instance, ancient ruts in the Phrygian Valley of Turkey have left Dr. Alexander Koltypin, geologist of the National Science Scientific Research Center in Moscow, in amazement. Apparently, these tracks were created by an intelligent race over 12 million years ago. Or so, this is what he thinks. Considering history’s timeline of events, that’s controversial, wouldn’t you think? At this site in Anatolia, Koltypin realized the tracks were impressions left in the compressed volcanic ash, hardened over time.
It’s true that tracks date back to the Hittite empire period, between 1600 BC and 1178 BC. Later on, tracks were left by the Phrygians, the Greeks and Alexander the Great and his army. These paths all became part of the Roman road network. It’s also true that glacial waters left paths through the earth in many locations. There are other speculations of what created these ruts.
The earlier ruts in the Phrygian Valley were closely examined. Koltypin thinks the indentions were made by something much heavier than chariots or light-weight carts. The tracks were scars left by all-terrain vehicles, much like what is used in modern society today. But how could tracks, from over 12 million years ago, be made from something that, to our knowledge, that had not been invented yet? Better yet, who was the unknown civilization that operated such vehicles?
Koltypin told Mail Online,
All these rocky fields were covered with ruts left some millions of years ago…we are not talking about human beings.
What? Did you catch that? Well, of course, you did. Hmmm, consider this idea. At first, we wondered what these tracks were made from and now the suggestion has been made toward something that isn’t even human. You know what he refers to. I do. If you are still in doubt, say…about the age of these tracks, listen to this.
Koltypin also said,
The methodology of specifying the age of volcanic rocks is very well studied and worked out.
So, not much doubt there.
Measurements have also been made to determine the distance between the wheels. It was found to be about the same distance as modern day vehicles. There is one thing that doesn’t match, however, and that points to the notion of these ruts being made by something much heavier than modern transportation. The tracks were, for the most part, three feet deep! It’s possible that the earth was supple, softer at this time, this is true. As with other theories, this is also just an educated opinion. Also, horizontal indentions were found along the inside walls of the ruts. These indentions could have possibly been made by some sort of axle. Hmmm, stumped again.
Controversial? I say so. Koltypin knew this would cause a stir. He says,
I think we are seeing the signs of the civilization that existed before the classic creation of this world. Maybe the creatures of that pre-civilization were not like modern human beings.
And guess what, this isn’t the only location scared by these ancient tracks. Other areas, such as Maltese Archipelago, have tracks that continue off cliffs and others which lead into the ocean. These tracks in Malta have just as many controversial theories.
Although he may be far from academic proof, Koltypin continues to rely on his controversial ideas.
I want to believe in Koltypin’s theory on the origin of the tracks in Turkey’s Phrygian Valley. What about you?
