Have you heard about the 800-year-old mobile phone found in Austria? Well, stories and images catch a lot of attention over internet claim that a recent archeologists’ discovered of 800-year-old mobile phone proves time travel is real. The story has been featured also in some mainstream media outlets. But the real question is, is it a fact or just another manipulation?
Let’s look back from where it all started. The story gained attraction online after YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible posted a story through a video on December 28, 2015. The description of the video stated the remarkable artifact resembling a modern day cell phone was found by a team of archeologists in the Austrian state of Salzburg. The video description is also linked to an article on website mysteriousuniverse.org on December 23, 2015, which said ‘Ancient Tablet Looks Like Cell Phone With cuneiform Keys.’
Paranormal Crucible version:
A remarkable artifact has been found by a team of archaeologists in Austria.
The artifact which resembles a modern day cellphone was reportedly found earlier this year by archaeologists digging in a city in the Austrian state of Salzburg.
Sources say that not much detailed information about the artifact is available and that they cannot be sure whether the archeological discovery is just an odd coincidence, a hoax or proof of time travel or alien contact.
By cell phone, of course! A controversial theory proposed by author Zecharia Sitchin is that aliens known as the Anunnaki came from Nibiru (the rumored Planet X beyond Neptune) and created the Sumerian civilization.
Is the tablet’s resemblance to a modern cell phone just an odd coincidence, a hoax or evidence of time travel or alien contact? If only some phone hacker knew cuneiform.
However, as we researched the topic, reveals that the image of the 800-year-old phone ‘artifact’ making noise online is an older one that seems to have first appeared in a YouTube video posted by user MEXICOGEEK on March 7, 2015, with a title that translates to ‘Old Cellular Shaped Object.’ The fact of the matter being, the user has been publishing too good to be true stories like the discovery of huge Pyramid on Mars.
And because of lack of evidence and credible citations, it does not prove that the artifact in question is 800-year-old and has been discovered by archeologists in Austria. And we can notice if we look a little close of the image in the video presented, it reveals that it is perhaps the mold of an Ericson S868 mobile phone. Which were possible manipulated and someone could have added imitations of Cuniform writing.
Cuneiform is a system of writing first developed by the Ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia c. 3500-300 BCE. Cuneiform tablets aren’t unusual – an estimated 2 million have been excavated. The language was a mystery until the 19th century when its code was deciphered.
So the stories about Archeologists’ discovery of ‘800-year-old mobile phone’ with cuneiform keys proving time travel is real or that it is a proof of alien contact are certainly hoaxes.
