Humans and Dinosaurs: Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones

(ORDO NEWS) — In 1961, the Rio Ica overflowed its banks and flooded part of the Ocucahe Desert. Was the earthquake the cause of the flood? As the water receded, local farmers surveyed the damage. Their meager fields were completely devastated.

Where they could grow crops, a thin layer of fertile soil was completely washed away.

While local farmers were walking on the ground, they made an amazing discovery: the forces of nature unearthed stones of various sizes that had been lying in dry ground for a long time. It is likely that the river has polished these stones over many centuries.

The engraved stones were smooth, round, gray andesite, which is a very hard rock. This property makes andesite the preferred material for paving squares. Due to its outstanding weather resistance and special hardness, it is ideal for road construction.

And yet the stones of Ica, with their peculiar engravings, were of andesite. Because of their hardness, they would not be the first choice for any artist to create thousands upon thousands of carved works of art.

The impoverished farmers were delighted with their finds and sold these works of art to tourists. Entrepreneurial locals made the engravings popular as “Inca art”.

looting the dead

Busy stone merchants certainly knew one thing: if the engraved stones were real archaeological finds, then they were twice guilty of violating applicable law. It was strictly forbidden to loot archaeological sites and sell prehistoric finds – unless the person was an archaeologist.

Of course, it was not allowed to send such artifacts outside the country. The prehistoric heritage of Peru belongs to Peru and should not be sold abroad.

Therefore, local residents went out at night in search of engraved stones. They were no longer satisfied with simply collecting them from the ground. They began to systematically dig. They were not new to this business.

Agriculture for centuries did not bring very large yields, and grave robbery was a much more profitable business. Real armies, as Professor Javier Cabrera Darquea told me, set out, especially on clear starry nights.

There was always something to be found: pre-Inca textiles, in particular, which the dry desert soil had remarkably well preserved. Grave robbers systematically searched for, found and robbed tombs, also dating back to pre-Inca times.

While working, they wore amulets to protect them from the wrath of the spirits of the dead. During their nocturnal activity, the robbers were less afraid of the police, but even more so of the dead, since the grave property was taken away from them.

Prehistoric carving?

In 1966, Professor Cabrera received one of these carved stones as a birthday present. In the same year, the architect Santiago Agurto Calvo carried out archaeological excavations in Ica.

He repeatedly found engraved stones. Calvo became convinced that the engravings belonged to the artists of the pre-Inca period. He tried in vain to arouse interest in the mysterious finds from leading archaeologists.

Professor Cabrera constantly received engraved stones, especially from people who were grateful to him for helping them without demanding payment for his services. Soon, the famous son of the city of Ica developed a real passion for collecting.

Over the years, hundreds of engraved designs have grown into thousands. Professor Javier Cabrera Darquea, who lectured at the National University of San Luis Gonzaga, soon realized that, in addition to simple geometric designs, they depict plants and animals from prehistoric times.

Clearly identifiable dinosaurs were carved into stone surfaces.

How were people before the Incas supposed to know what dinosaurs looked like? And even more fantastic is this idea: the artists who created a myriad of images portrayed humans and dinosaurs as contemporaries. Other stones depict complex medical procedures, even heart transplants and caesarean sections!

Library in stone

I have repeatedly visited the museum in Ica. Professor Cabrera has always been extremely kind. I realized that the dismissive attitude of orthodox science irritated and distressed him.

He often expressed his outrage at the refusal of scientists to recognize the authenticity of the library in stone. “The engraved stones can be read like a book!” – convincingly repeated the reasoned director of the museum.

Most scientists have a completely different opinion: are humans and dinosaurs contemporaries? A highly developed civilization that has mastered advanced medicine with complex surgical operations?

People who were not only outstanding doctors, but also devoted themselves to science many thousands of years ago? On a large number of stones in the museum, you can see human beings who looked at the sky with telescopes.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 6

For orthodox science, the answer was obvious: there could not have been such a highly developed civilization many thousands of years ago … because the recognition of the finds as authentic would make the whole modern conception of human history absurd.

The engravings can’t be anything other than fake…because it’s an absolute requirement for them to be fake! In 1998, to the delight of scientists, the Spaniard Vincente Paris presented evidence that the stones were fake.

To be precise: Vincente Paris examined several engraved stones and concluded that the images were created in the recent past, and not in a foggy prehistoric era.

His photomicrographs show (as Luke Burgin notes in his excellent Lexikon der Verbotenen Archaeology- Mysteriöse Relikte von A bis Z) “many Ica stones show traces of modern paints and polishes.”

How can one evaluate the conclusions of Vincente Paris? Are all the engraved stones in the Cabrera Museum fake? This is what the so-called skeptics, the self-appointed defenders of orthodox science, have been saying for decades.

Critical attacks

In 1977, Erich von Denniken published his voluminous work “Beweise-Lokaltermin in fünf Kontinenten” (“According to the evidence”). In this volume, von Däniken also writes about the engraved Ica stones: “The Cabrera family owns a large house in the Plaza de Armas, and this is necessary because the Cabrera are very fertile.

However, the three large rooms are floor-to-ceiling filled with shelves containing a huge amount of stones. Their sizes range from a soccer ball to a balloon. Each stone is engraved with various motifs. Here you can meet Indians who ride birds.

Others are immortalized with strange tools in their hands. On one rock, an Indian uses a magnifying glass to see better. One of the stones is a pocket globe: it is carefully carved with the outlines of strange countries, continents and oceans.

Professor Cabrera, a skilled surgeon himself, purposefully points to a series of stones depicting the process of a heart transplant.

The patient’s heart, lying on a kind of operating table, is surgically removed from the chest; the necessary solutions and oxygen are supplied to it through the hoses. The donor heart is inserted. Two surgeons suture the arteries. The thoracic opening is closed.

In 1977, “critics” violently attacked Erich von Däniken. Journalists” documented what von Däniken allegedly concealed.

During the British television documentary “Paths to the Gods” shown the same year, these “masters of research” presented the Peruvian Basilio Ushuia, whom they allegedly tracked down and found, as a counterfeiter of stones.

According to them , Ushuya, not without malice, engraved the stones with a dental drill and then artificially aged them by baking them in cow dung.Did this expose Erich von Denniken?

In 1996, the BBC turned to “fake” again. In 1997, Cable 1 featured a skeptical documentary. Once again, Basilio Ushuia was presented as a counterfeiter of Ica stones.

Did this close the “case of the Ica stones”? Could it really have been closed since critical journalists figured out the counterfeiter of all the Ica stones? Well… it’s not that simple. Calculating the forger Basilio Ushuaia was not difficult at all. It didn’t take Sherlock Holmes.

The masters of research diligently kept silent in their revelations that it was Erich von Daniken who presented Basilio Ushuia in his book According to the Evidence. In order to find the Peruvian “forger”, it was enough for journalists to read von Daniken’s book.

The fact remains that Erich von Denniken made the public aware of the engraved Ica stones. And he openly wrote about the “forger”.

However, von Daniken has serious doubts that Ushuaia could forge thousands of engravings. Indeed, it is impossible for Basilio Ushuia to decorate a huge number of stones with countless engravings.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 8

But why does Basilio Ushuaia claim to have made “all the engraved stones”? Did he really say so? Another fact is that Basilio Ushuia sold “engraved Ica stones” to foreign tourists. The Peruvian police charged him with the illegal sale of archaeological finds.

If he were found guilty of violating the law that should protect the archaeological heritage of Peru, Basilio Ushuia would suffer severe punishment. Therefore, he claimed that he and his wife forged the stones. The sale of “genuine” archaeological artifacts is not prohibited. Basilio Ushuia was not prosecuted and was not punished.

Basilio Ushuia: “Although I told the police that I fabricated the Cabrera stones, I only did it for my own protection, otherwise they would have arrested me for looting archaeological sites.”

I came to understand that the dismissive attitude of orthodox science irritated and distressed Professor Cabrera.

He often expressed his outrage at the refusal of mainstream scholars to acknowledge the authenticity of the library in stone. “The engraved stones can be read like a book!” – convincingly repeated the reasoned director of the museum.

Fantastic finds or fakes?

Professor Javier Cabrera Darquea, over several decades, has created one of the most unusual museums on the planet that I have ever seen. Artifacts are exhibited here that – if genuine – would require a rewrite of human history.

Those who travel to explore the secrets of our planet regularly stumble upon nasty, mysterious artifacts.

In countless museums one can learn, often in visual detail, much about the evolution of the human race. Precious exhibits illustrate the evolution from a primitive single-celled organism to a computer expert.

In this way, the visitor can trace the mechanism of evolution: both the driving force behind the creation of modern fauna, and the development of man from primitive “homo sapiens” to modern humanity.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 10

The theory of evolution is reverently celebrated as the modern form of a scientifically recognized deity. Centuries ago, it was sacrilege to doubt the God of the Bible. There is no more “God the Father”, the creator, the driving force; today’s enlightened people are following the new gospel.

And even more disapproving in scientific circles are the great goddess, who constantly gives birth; according to ancient belief systems, she gave birth to all life, adhering to the eternal cycles of death and rebirth.

The patriarchal god supplanted the goddess, and in modern science she was replaced by the sacred theory of evolution. The latter is as sacred today in supposedly enlightened circles of the noble sciences as the all-powerful creator god of the Bible was many centuries ago.

But something has really changed: centuries ago, heretics were tortured and burned. Today, they must fear for their livelihood if they are to claim a place in the world of the scientific establishment. In the atheistic circles of science, too, there are taboos.

The scientific publications of our time proclaim the “truth” as loudly as the religious treatises of various trends in their time.

And just as theologians, for example, burned texts that did not fit into the concept of the Bible, or simply banned them, so museum artifacts that do not fit into the general doctrine drag out a miserable existence.

They disappear into musty cellars if they are not completely destroyed – because they supposedly are worth nothing.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 11

The indisputable canon of “scientific truth” says: evolution led to a gradual and continuous rise. Modern man has risen to the zenith, all humanoid ancestors were more primitive, all previous cultures were more primitive.

It cannot be that thousands, even tens of thousands of years ago, there were highly developed cultures that in many respects were superior to ours.

Why? Because, according to scientific ideology, such a highly developed culture should not exist. However, anyone who wants to read the history of mankind with an open mind, as an exciting, informative book, should not subordinate his thinking to the oppression of dogma.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 12

Items that do not fit into the general concept of history will not be exhibited in the sacred halls of our museums. They drag out a miserable existence in archives and basements and are not available to the public.

Or they are simply ignored. Objects that have no place in the doctrine of orthodox science are quickly declared fakes. They must be counterfeits – they cannot be authentic because they are not allowed to be authentic.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 13

For example, Cabrera’s engraved stones and clay sculptures clearly depict prehistoric saurs, or dinosaurs. How to treat such objects? How to classify them?

You can easily declare them fake, guided by a simple maxim: thousands of years ago, people in South America could not know anything about saurians. Therefore, artifacts depicting saurs cannot be thousands of years old.

Alternative thinking

But there is an alternative! Perhaps our understanding of the level of knowledge of people who lived in South America thousands of years ago is wrong?

Perhaps we should change our hypothesis about the distant past of South America and make room for unpleasant archaeological finds. Our theses about the past of mankind should not be an untouchable set of principles. They must be constantly scrutinized.

Unfortunately, orthodox science, as a rule, refuses to recognize archaeological finds that do not fit into the classical image of the past. Thousand-year-old images of dinosaurs are revolting to any fan of the mainstream canon. And yet they exist.

In 1897, Waldemar Julsrud, a merchant from Bremen, emigrated to Mexico. Like Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890), Julsrud was a passionate field archaeologist. Science ignored Schliemann.

He discovered the location of Troy. Yulsrud’s finds are probably much more significant for the history of mankind. If you want to read the true history of mankind like a book, then you should not bypass the pages of Yulsrud.

Between 1944 and 1952, he hired natives to excavate over thirty-three thousand small sculptures. Among them are countless figurines of Saurians, or dinosaurs – their exact number is unknown.

No one has ever scientifically examined these fantastic sculptures; nevertheless, all of them, every single one, were declared modern forgeries. They couldn’t be authentic because they weren’t allowed to be authentic.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 14

Waldemar Julsrud turned his large house into an inhabited museum. All vacant seats were used. Residents shared their dwelling with bizarre clay figurines that lay and stood everywhere, on tables, in cabinets, on shelves and in display cases.

Julsrud’s house became a bizarre world where humans and monstrous creatures lived side by side. Thousands of figurines depicted a world that looked more like a mystical film of the 21st century than an earthly reality.

The number of curious visitors who came to see the unique exhibition has grown steadily. Representatives of modern science, however, did not consider it necessary to examine the artifacts closer.

They could only be fakes, because they were meant to be. And they had to be fakes because they were forbidden to be genuine artifacts. And even the shortest journey was too long for

After the death of Waldemar Julsrud in 1964, the entire collection was sent to storage. There she dozed, carefully hidden from prying eyes, until private researchers in the last years of the 1990s paid attention to sensational finds.

And here you are… someone did a scientific analysis of the artifacts. Why were the results not made public? Why didn’t anyone shout from the rooftops about the results of dating “fake” artifacts? Maybe because the tests did not give the expected results? Maybe because the finds cannot be modern forgeries?

It is a fact that three scientific institutions in North America (Bürgin, Luc: Lexikon der verbotenen Archäologie: Mysteriöse Funde von A bis Z , Rottenburg 2009, p. 22) have tested objects from Julsrud.

Independently of each other, they came to the same result, which leads to only one conclusion: the dated artifacts are not fake ! The tests were carried out:

1. Teledyne Isotopes Laboratories, Westwood, New Jersey, USA

2. Museum Center of Applied Sciences for Archeology at the University of Pennsylvania, USA

3. Geochron Laboratories, Massachusetts, USA

If we summarize the results of these scientific studies, then the mysterious figurines were created over a long period of time, namely: between 4500 BC (C14 dating 1968) and 2500 BC (thermoluminescent dating 1973 and 1995). Was Julsrud ever acquitted after the forgery theory was debunked?

Saurian thoroughness

Another fact – in the Julsrud collection there are miniature sculptures depicting saurs. Scientific analysis has given these artifacts a very high age.

At least a small part of the collection was on display at the Waldemar Julsrud Museum, which opened on 28 February 2002 in Acambaro. Decades after the death of Waldemar Julsrud, the tireless explorer’s wish was finally granted.

Another fact is that the museum of Professor Cabrera contains images of Saurians. These objects were also – in the full sense of the word – discredited and recognized as fakes. However, there are scientific studies that speak of the existence of very ancient “Cabrera objects”.

Humans and Dinosaurs Mystery encoded in the Ica Stones 16

In the summer of 1967, Compania Minera Mauricio Hochschild was testing engraved stones. Professor Javier Cabrera Darquea showed me the relevant documents in his museum. The results were sensational but are still largely hushed up. Geologist Dr. Eric Wolf analyzed the layer of oxidation that formed on the grooves.

Additional samples were tested by Prof. Josef Frenchen from the Institute of Mineralogy and Petrography at the University of Bonn. In the spring of 1969 clear results were obtained.

According to them, the engravings must have been made at least twelve thousand (12,000) years ago. This does not rule out a much greater age.

In 2002, Maria del Carmen Olazar Benguira and Felix Arenas Marsical excavated in the desert between Nazca and Ica. They worked for several days in very difficult conditions.

Two hundred meters (656 feet) below the summit of the Cerro Norte, they made their finds: engraved stones comparable to the artifacts in the Cabrera Museum! At the Prof. Cabrera Museum, images of complex medical procedures engraved on stones as well as on clay figurines leave viewers bewildered.

One of the stones excavated in 2002 also depicts a medical scene, as do the artifacts in the Cabrera Museum: one man lies on a table undergoing surgery; the surgeon clearly brings the knife to the patient.

Engravings depicting some kind of medical procedure?

Some stones are “encrusted with deposits”. Burgin writes that carbon deposits on accompanying soil and rock samples, according to thermoluminescent dating, gave an age of more than 61,196 years or 99,240 years, respectively, with a deviation factor of 5,000 to 8,000 years.

Burgin concludes his exposition on the “Ica stones” as follows: “Thus, the endless history of the Ica stones has been completed with another chapter. How will it continue?”
