On 1 January, 1924, Canadian Anna Mitchell Hedges discovered a crystal skull beneath an alter in a pyramid temple in the lost Mayan city of Lubaantun (meaning the city of the fallen stones in the Mayan language).

The skull was the same size as a genuine human skull and consists entirely of transparent quartz. The anatomically completely accurate skull, with its  separate mobile lower jaw was carved from one whole piece of quartz crystal.

Anna Mitchell Hedges wished to discover who made the skull, and when, and gave it to the world-renowned company Hewlett-Packard for testing. Since the crystal contained no carbon, scientists were unable to perform radio-carbon dating, but used different techniques to try to establish when the skull had been made, and using which methods.

1. The skull was made from quartz crystal, used in present-day electronic industry:A team of scientists revealed that the skull has been made out of a form of quartz known as piezoelectric silicon dioxide, used in the current telecommunications sector and with a higher memory capacity than other. Latest micro-processors are made from the same substance. Even more striking, however, is the fact that this form of crystal was only discovered in the 19th century.

2. The crystal skull has the ability to produce its own electricity:This crystal, piezoelectric silicon dioxide, is both negative and positively polarized. This means that, as with batteries, it is able to produce its own electricity.

3. The skull was produced from a single block of crystal:Scientists used a series of polarized test lights to establish that the skull and the lower jaw were made from the same block of crystal rock. Considering that quartz crystal is softer and more brittle than diamond, the fact the skull was carved from a single piece of crystal, which is almost impossible, amazed scientists.

4. No signs of any tools were discovered on the skull:The scientists decided to examine the skull under a microscope to determine whether any tools had been used in its manufacture. They were amazed to find no signs that modern automatic equipment or mechanical tools had been used in the crystal skull’s manufacture. Crystal rock is very brittle and friable, and it would have fallen apart had any tools been used during the carving. Because modern manufacturing tools would immediately break it because of their heat and vibrations. Hewlett-Packard concluded that it was impossible to produce such a delicate and fine component as the lower jaw, from a single piece of crystal, even using modern diamond-tipped electrical equipment, without shattering it. This led one of the team of scientists to say, “this skull shouldn’t even exist” and resulted in a number of other observers also speculating that the skull might not be human in origin. Following these tests, the crystal skull was interpreted as having been made by hand.

5. Had the crystal skull been carved by hand, it would have taken around 300 years, and several generations to have its present shape: The scientists calculated that it would have taken several generations to carve the skull, using no tools apart from rubbing at it with a piece of diamond. According to the Hewlett-Packard report, it would have taken some 300 years to shape the skull by abrading it by hand.

6. There are no cracks in the crystal skull, despite its being carved in total violation of the laws of physics: Present-day crystals are carved around their axes. Because crystals have a molecular symmetry. In order not to break the crystal, it has to be cut in line with that natural structure, its molecular symmetry, in other words. Even if lasers of high-tech cutting techniques are used, crystals will still shatter if not cut along their natural axes. But even though this crystal skull was cut in a manner totally independent of its axis, no fracturing or cracking arose, in complete violation of the laws of physics.

7. Scientists were astonished by the crystal skull’s optical design:As a result of the Hewlett-Packard tests, scientists realized that the skull had interesting optical properties. Light applied from beneath the skull should normally be refracted in all directions, but in this skull it forms a channel focusing on the eye sockets and emerging from these.

8. The prism inside the crystal skull concentrates an image of the area in the eyes: There is a kind of prism in the lower, rear part of the skull. Light striking the eye sockets is reflected from here. Therefore, if you look directly into the sockets you see that the whole room is reflected inside the eyes of the crystal skull.

Structures that present-day technology still struggles to account for, such as Stonehenge in England, constructed 8,000 years ago, the Egyptian pyramids, the T-shaped animal motifs carved 11,000 years ago on Gobekli Tepe in Urfa, Turkey and the 10-ton Sun gate carved from a single rock, prove that people in ancient times were not primitive and lacking any comprehension of art, science and technology, as is sometimes claimed. Evolutionists have attempted to apply the same perverse, evolutionary logic they sought to apply to such branches of science as biology, paleontology, zoology, entomology and botany to archeology, as well. But the historical artifacts that emerge into the light of day scientifically refute the evolutionist claim that ape-like beings gradually developed into modern man.

A 35,000-year-old flute unearthed during the course of excavations in Germany shows, like other flutes discovered to date, that people in very ancient times possessed a highly developed artistic culture. 

The flute, made from griffon vulture bone, was unearthed in 12 fragments from the Hohle Fels cave in southern Germany by archeologist Nicholas Conard. Since the 5-hole whistle is enormously fragile, Conard had an identical copy made from a similar piece of bone in order to test the instrument’s functionality. He was able to play the American national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, on the flute, using the seven-note scale that represents the foundation of Western music.
Archeologists also discovered six statuettes made from mammoth tusk in the same cave. Wil Roebroeks, an archeologist from the University of Leiden in Holland, states that there was a highly advanced culture in Europe 35,000 years ago and that people then had a very similar lifestyle to people today.  Roebroeks says that these flutes were made and played by modern human beings. April Nowell from the University of Victoria in Canada has stated that these finds reveal the existence of a highly advanced and stable technical knowledge and tradition.

These archeological finds once again refute the Darwinist claim that human beings share a common ancestor with apes. Darwinists maintain that the ape-like entities that supposedly lived tens of thousands of years ago, grunting to one another and living an animal lifestyle, came to live in groups and thus developed intelligent and social behavior. But these supposed primitive entities are not the only beings to live in social groups. Gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys and many other animal species live in groups. But none of these have developed the same intelligent and social behavior as human beings. None has made a 7-note flute, manufactured statuettes or, in short, exhibited any such intelligence and ability. Because intelligent and conscious behavior is unique to human beings. These objects dating back to tens of thousands of years, the remains of which have come down to us today, were produced by human beings possessed of intelligence and consciousness, the ability to calculate, plan and manufacture, and a soul given them by Allah.

You are listening to the sound of a reconstruction of a 35,000-year-old flute made from vulture wing bone. (You can switch the sound off by clicking on the sound icon at the top of the page)

The figure of a human being playing a flute in the 7,000-year-old drawing shows that the people of the time possessed a culture and a knowledge of music, and therefore, that they were mentally developed and cultured.

Painting beside, which is also 7,000 years old, shows a man playing a musical instrument. The recent photograph above shows a member of the Dzu, a native community in Botswana, playing a similar instrument. The fact is, a musical instrument similar to that used 7,000 years ago is still in use today! This is another striking example that demolishes Darwinist claims. Civilization does not always advance, as Darwinists maintain; sometimes it may remain the same for thousands of years. While this man keeps playing a venerable instrument that has existed for the past 7,000 years, on the other side of the world, digital symphonies are being composed using the most advanced computer technology. And both cultures co-exist at the same time.

THE WORLD'S OLDEST BOWL, DISCOVERED IN CHINA, ONCE AGAIN REFUTES THE DARWINIST IDEA OF "THE EVOLUTION OF SOCIETIES"Pottery fragments recently discovered by archeologists in the Yuchanyan Cave in China have once again demolished the evolutionist conception of history.  According to a report on BBC News, the fragments have been dated using 40 different Carbon-14 techniques to be between 17,500 and 18,300 years old.  The existence of such ancient pots is an utter defeat, in evolutionist terms, for they indicate that human beings led civilized and settled lives at what is claimed to have been the Stone Age.

Evolutionists maintain that the first human beings were half-ape creatures
whose mental and physical characteristics developed over the course of time, that they acquired new abilities, and that civilizations evolved for that reason.
According to this claim, based on no scientific evidence whatsoever, our supposed primitive ancestors led animalistic lives, became civilized only after they became human, and registered cultural progress as their mental
capacities developed. Fictitious images of the so-called primitive Man, with a body entirely covered in fur, or seeking to make fire while squatting under animal skins, walking along the waterside with a freshly killed animal on his shoulder, or seeking to communicate with his peers by gestures and grunting, are false recreations based on this unscientific claim. However, the archeological discoveries made to date from the Stone Age, when evolutionists claim that “human beings had only just learned to speak,” show that human beings then lived family lives, performed brain surgery and understood the arts of painting and music.

Since the approximately 18,000-year-old bowl shards found in the Yuchanyan Cave in China also bear the signs of civilized life they also refute evolutionists’ supposed “sequence of historic ages.” These bowl fragments, dated at between 17,500 and 18,300 years old, are the oldest earthenware remains ever discovered. According to evolutionist claims, human beings should not yet have adopted a settled life style in the period described as the Stone Age, and should have been living in caves as primitive hunters using stone tools.  But archeological finds scientifically prove the exact opposite. The oldest-known earthenware fragments found in the Yuchanyan Cave therefore fully expose the invalidity of evolutionists’ claims, which are in fact no more than fantasies.

Grains of rice were also discovered in the same cave in 2005. Put together, these finds show that human beings living 18,000 years ago engaged in agriculture and lived civilized lives similar to those of people today.

Such developments and finds made in branches of science like archeology and anthropology reveal that the “idea of cultural and social evolution” is a hollow one. The finds unearthed during archeological excavations clearly reveal that history is interpreted by Darwinist scientists in the light of the preconceptions of materialist ideology. The myth of the “Stone Age” is nothing more than materialists’ attempts to depict man as a creature evolved from supposed unintelligent animals and to impose this myth they believe in on science.

THE 'POLISHED STONE' DECEPTIONThe most striking stonework has survived down to the present day in archaeological remains. In order to be able to give stone such a detailed and regular shape, powerful steel tools generally need to be employed. One cannot make fine shapes and designs by abrading or rubbing one stone together with another. Technical infrastructure is essential to accurately cut stones as hard as granite and make patterns on their surface.

Many stone implements remain sharp and bright, reflecting from accurate cutting and shaping. The way evolutionist scientists describe the era they came from as the "Polished Stone Age" is completely unscientific. It is impossible for polish to be preserved over thousands of years. The stones in question shine because they were accurately cut, not because, as is claimed, they were polished. This brightness stems from inside the stone itself.
Of the bracelets in the above picture, the one on the left is made of marble, and the right one from basalt. They date back to between 8,500 and 9,000 BCE. Evolutionists claim that in that period, only tools made out of stone were used. But basalt and marble are exceptionally hard substances. In order for them to be turned into such rounded links, steel blades and equipment must be used. It is impossible for them to have been cut and shaped without the use of steel tools. If you give anyone a piece of stone and ask him to use it to turn a piece of basalt into a bracelet like that in the picture, what degree of success will they have? Rubbing one stone against another or striking them against one another cannot, of course, produce a bracelet. Moreover, these artifacts show that the people who made them were civilized individuals with aesthetic tastes and an understanding of beauty.

The illustrations show hand-made tools of obsidian and bone, hooks and various objects made out of stone. Obviously, one cannot obtain such regular shapes by striking raw material with a stone. Crude blows will merely break the bone and prevent the desired shape from taking form. In the same way, it is clear that sharp lines and pointed tips cannot be possible, even with tools of the very hardest stone, such as granite and basalt. These stones are cut regularly, just like slicing fruit. Their brightness stems not from their being polished, as evolutionists maintain, but from the shaping itself. Those who made these items must have had devices of iron or steel to let them shape these materials in the manner they wished. Slabs of hard stone can be cut so accurately only by using a material even harder, such as steel.


The evolutionist historical perspective studies the history of mankind by dividing it up into several periods, just as it does with the supposed course of human evolution itself. Such fictitious concepts as the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age are an important part of the evolutionist chronology. Since this imaginary picture is presented in schools and in television and newspaper stories, most people accept this imaginary picture without question and imagine that human beings once lived in an era when only primitive stone tools were used and technology was unknown.

Yet when archaeological findings and scientific facts are examined, a very different picture emerges. The traces and remains that have come down to the present—the tools, needles, flute fragments, personal adornments and decorations—show that in cultural and social terms, humans have always lived civilized lives in all periods of history.

Hundreds of thousands of years ago, people lived in houses, engaged in agriculture, exchanged goods, produced textiles, ate, visited relatives, took an interest in music, made paintings, treated the sick, performed their acts of worship and, in short, lived normal lives just as they do today. People who heeded the prophets sent by Allah came to have faith in Him, the One and Only, while others worshipped idols. Believers with faith in Allah abided by the moral values commanded by Him, while others engaged in superstitious practices and deviant rites. At all times in history, just as today, there have been people who believed in the existence of Allah, as well as pagans and atheists.

Of course, throughout history, there have always been those living under simpler, more primitive conditions as well as societies living civilized lives. But this by no means constitutes evidence for the so-called evolution of history, because while one part of the world is launching shuttles into space, people in other lands are still unacquainted with electricity. Yet this does not mean that those who build spacecraft are mentally or physically more advanced—and have progressed further down the supposed evolutionary road and become more culturally evolved—nor that the others are closer to the fictional ape-men. These merely indicate differences in cultures and civilizations.

2 Pestles dating back to 11,000 BCE
3 An obsidian tool dating back to 10,000 BCE
4 Stone objects dating back to 11,000 BCE
5 Stonework dating back to between 9,000 and 10,000 BCE, with traces of malachite inlay
6 A socketed stone inlay resembling a nail, dating back to around 10,000 BCE
7 A hammer dating back to 10,000 BCE
These stone tools date back on average to between 10,000 and 11,000 BCE. Imagine that you wanted to make any one of the objects here by hitting or rubbing one stone with another, in the way evolutionists maintain was done at the time. Try to make regular holes such as those in figure 4. No matter how many times you strike the piece of rock in your hand, you will never be able to make such a perfect hole. To do so, you will need to use a drill made of some harder substance like steel.

LIGHT BULBS WERE USED FOR ILLUMINATION IN ANCIENT EGYPT Ancient Egypt is one of the most impressive civilizations established by mankind. Ancient Egyptians had such vast experience and knowledge that can not be the sequence of a primitive society. Among deviated idolater Egyptians, there were wisemen who had the wisdom coming from the times of Prophet Noah (pbuh) and Prophet Abraham (pbuh). These Jewish wisemen used to employ the knowledge from the periods of previous prophets. One of such knowledge was the using of electricity for illumination.

The discovery of various wall carvings or friezes discovered in the Hathor Temple of Dendera Temple Complex in Egypt has revealed one especially fascinating piece of information about the ancient Egyptians. A large part of the friezes, examined below, are in the Dendera Temple Complex. These show that the ancient Egyptians obtained lighting by using bulbs and the arc light technique. 

Close inspection of these pictures in the Temple of Hathor shows that high-voltage insulation was used, just like that of today; this is supported by a rectangular column resembling a light bulb (believed to have been used as an insulator and known as the Djed Column.) This astonishing resemblance to the light bulbs we use today is most striking. 

The Austrian electrical engineer Walter Garn studied the friezes in great detail, and reproduced the Djed Column insulator, bulb and twisting wire. The model he built did indeed work and emit light.


In a documentary broadcast in September 1996 by the American ABC channel, this lighting system was tested by scientists before the cameras. Success was once again achieved and light obtained. This is basically a light bulb and it worked through the technique shown in the ancient Egyptian wall paintings, thus providing light. In the video that follows you can see how light is obtained through the methods employed by the ancient Egyptians. 

In this painting from the Dendera Temple, four wide filament (the component in lamps that permits heating) lamps can be seen on the left. A cable stretching from a giant electric battery on the left powers these lamps. 


Close examination of the picture above shows that the electric cables joining the battery to the lamp are covered in tiny beads set out in sequence. Beads like this are used to insulate the electricity coming from the cable. The picture below shows one of the arc lamps first manufactured in the 19th century. 

Lighting in ancient Egypt was provided using the classic bulbs we employ today. The Egyptian pictures show bulb-like devices with filament wires, a holder and current wires. In the picture below, the person is reading picture texts on the wall by lighting the surrounding area with the lamp in his hand.


This picture clearly shows the filaments permitting electric current to flow inside the lamps the Egyptians are holding. As with modern-day bulbs, the filaments used in Egypt had a spiral shape. Again as applies today, this spiral filament heated by the electric current provided illumination by emitting light. 
The first filament lamp, invented by Thomas Edison and shown in the picture, bears a close resemblance to the lamps being held by the Egyptians.

In this picture discovered on a tomb wall in the Dendera Temple, an electric cable is leading away from a lamp with three bulbs. 

This picture shows a battery and cable in one of the figure’s hands and an electric lamp in the others’. 

This illustration tells us about the lighting plan in the Dendera Temple.
Section B shows that red-colored batteries are attached to white electric lamps.
In section A, the lamps removed from the battery have been inserted into lamps to be held by hand.
In section C, an electric lamp stands on a long, thin stand, its power source. Two spirals can be seen on the floor to the right and left; these are probably attached to the power source’s positive and negative poles.
In section D, reflectors decorated with flowers are shown attached to one another by cables. Turn screws can be seen between the cables.

One piece of evidence that Ancient Egyptians may have used electricity is the absence of any traces of soot on the interior walls of their tombs and pyramids. If—as evolutionist archaeologists maintain—they used burning torches and oil lamps for lighting, then traces of soot would inevitably have been left behind. Yet there are no such traces anywhere, not even in the very deepest chambers. It would have been impossible for construction to continue without the necessary lighting being provided nor, even more importantly, for the magnificent murals to have been painted on the walls. This strengthens the possibility that electricity was, indeed, used in Ancient Egypt.

The Djed Column, frequently encountered in Egyptian hieroglyphics, may symbolize such electrical equipment. The Djed Column may serve as a generator for light to be provided in this way.


In arc lamps, lighting is provided as a result of a light arc arising between two conductor rods. When the two rods with opposite charges are touched against one another and then held a few millimeters apart, the current that arises causes light to be emitted. Arc lamps are 200 times more powerful than classic bulbs and emit a very strong, bright light. Due to their power, these bulbs are used in studios, light therapy, projector lamps and cinematography.

A model of the first arc lamps made in the 19th century.

In this illustration, two opposite charged metallic items held by the person on the right and left are shedding light by setting up an electric current.  

The reconstruction on the left shows how the arc lamps in the Dendera Temple were used. On the right is a light arc set up with two opposite charged carbon rods. 


A bulb working on the arc lamp principle that provides
very powerful lighting in present-day projectors
and as used also by the ancient Egyptians. 

This illustration shows a simple arc light made with two opposite
charged carbon rods using electricity from a car battery. 
The lights held by the ancient Egyptians also resemble small
torches with their own batteries underneath them.

Contrary to what evolutionists claim, the history of mankind is full of proofs that ancient peoples possessed far superior technologies and civilizations than had been believed. One of these proofs is the Ancient Egyptians’ knowledge of electricity.
