Interesting find of a grooved sphere that was found. ... 11402a.htm

The Grooved Spheres
Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres. Origin unknown, these spheres measure approximately an inch or so in diameter, and some are etched with three parallel grooves running around the equator. Two types of spheres have been found: one is composed of a solid bluish metal with flecks of white; the other is hollowed out and filled with a spongy white substance. The kicker is that the rock in which they where found is Precambrian - and dated to 2.8 billion years old! Who made them and for what purpose is unknown.

Are they saying that these were made 2.8 billion years ago?

That's what they're saying

A healthy dose of skepticism is in order. The rock may be 2.8 billion years old, without knowing how the balls were found it would be presumptuous to claim that they are contemporaneous and that they were made by a 'who'.

Sounds like a load of old balls to me :D

How about a whole truckload of skepticism? Your first clue would have to be the paranormal website this was posted on.

AiG has an article about the 'Ankor Wat Stegosaurus'

This is a close-up Image

I have to agree with the Cryptozoo folk that the 'Stegosaurus panel' seems to be a lot cleaner than the rest of the stone.

What's also interesting is that AiG have a headliner article on it - but recognise that the authenticity might well be a problem
AiG wrote:Some have questioned the authenticity of the relief. However, even if the relief is found to be fraudulent, the position that man and dinosaurs lived together just thousands of years ago does not rest on this one evidence—it is based on the unchanging Word of God.

So they've got all the bases covered - whatever the evidence may or may not show, God still says that Man and Dinosaurs lived together.
