Ah, the mysterious Ika stones

Much as it surprises me, Wikipedia has it pretty much right concerning the Ika stones. But who needs facts when you have belief? Just for fun, scan this article for its amusing faith-based struggle with coherent thought.

Here’s what the finished product might look like. Stones might portray humans riding dinosaurs, or complicated medical procedures (inspired by medical journals provided by Dr. Javier Cabrera, who originally promoted these “ancient wonders.” Or they might have telescopes or microscopes, “proving” that they were in use millions of years ago. Oh, yeah, the dark parts are done with shoe polish.

Not convinced? Ya gotta believe!

Irma estimates that she used to do up to twenty stones per day. 61 years. You do the math.

Disclosure: historical anomalies do exist, and I find them fascinating. Ancient superior (and lost) technology existed, as I’ll demonstrate in the next few days. But the Ika stones ain’t part of that!
