Not sure which thread to put this one into but it is none the less a very interesting story!

Could archaeologists' discovery of '800-year-old mobile phone' prove time travel is real?

CLAIMS that archaeologists have dug up an 800-year-old object that perfectly resembles a modern-day mobile phone have gone viral online.

clips have emerged of the bizarre discovery.[


The object, unearthed during a dig in Austria, is allegedly a clay copy of a mobile phone with a Sumerian writing style known as cuneiform on the keys.


YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible reported: "What is it? Is it evidence of an advanced civilisation or time travel?

The tablet was dated to around the 13th century BCE. By that time, the Sumerian writing style – usually known as cuneiform - had already been around for a few thousand years.


Editorial on the channel goes on to say: “Cuneiform tablets aren’t unusual – an estimated two million have been excavated. The language was a mystery until the 19th century when its code was deciphered."



Cuneiform was one of the first systems of writing developed by the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia around 3,500BC to 3,000 BC.

But the lack of checkable information on the dig and the startling similarity to a cell phone handset have many online posters convinced it is just an imaginative hoax.

I don't see it as absolutely implausible that there was some ancient, civilisation unknown to us before recorded history that may have had gadgets and advanced technology and the like.

I don't think time travel is feasible because there would be time travellers poppin' up all over the place, wouldn't there?

I am convinced there are multiple universes because some posters are on here, regardless of whatever time I check in, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There has got to be 3 Taidges.
The morning Taidge who posts the decent stuff.
The evening Taidge that just keeps the show somewhat sane.
The night Taidge. He is the minimum wage guy that Olli gives a good ass whupping to once a week for a laugh.

Maybe Tadhg has recruited some low paid Africans to take over the running of his account, when in Rome....

Very likely that he pays them, if at all, in Zimbabwe or Fat Fung Dung pesos.

The overnight Taidge is just not worth the money, even in confetti.

Perhaps he should be restricted to 2 shifts, 16 hours is more than ample to fertilize the site imho.

If its not a hoax id like to know what it is.
There's a very simple test. Just check if it contains metal and plastics.

The problem with a lot of these situations where people claim that technology is too advanced for a particular era is that the people making the claim are rarely technologists or have any knowledge of the eras. The Antikythera device is a good example. To the average individual it was just an encrusted piece of junk. Most of the people who saw it just couldn't make the intellectual jump from seeing the parts to understanding that it was a device. The knowledge behind the development of these devices was siloed in that it was not in widespread circulation and kept among a small number of people who had the skills and the theoretical background to use it.
