Today’s top news story is about the possible discovery of a giant stone face carved into the sheer rock of a hillside on the west coast of Canada. Many of the world’s most amazing archaeological discoveries have happened by accident, and Fred Thompson thinks he may have just accidentally found another one, recently revealed by a logging operation near Jennis Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Fred said that he was driving a logging truck for a Port Alberni company and was parked beside what appeared to be a giant face while in line for nine loads of logs. He kept looking at it wondering how it got there.
Giant Rock Face Appears Hand-Made
“The more I looked at it I thought, ‘That’s not natural’. It’s probably at least 18 feet high, at least,” he told CTV. Thompson reported that it’s about 500 to 600 yards off of the beach, and had more of a Roman nose than the faces found on Easter Island. “You see something like that – that’s so symmetrically perfect – that is a real weird anomaly to me,” he said. “I think it’s too perfect to be natural. The nose is perfectly vertical to the earth and the eyebrows are 90 degrees to that. You could probably put a square on it and you’d probably find it was damn close to square.” Fortunately Fred took pictures, and I suspect it won’t be long before the place is crawling with archaeological and government departments.
Face Revealed By Logging operation
But it’s not like someone can drive there. Jennis Bay is located on British Columbia’s rugged central coast region roughly two hours from Port Hardy by boat, or is accessible by seaplane. The bay lies north of Sointula, north by northwest of Broughton Island, and it’s almost due west of Sullivan Bay. Thompson’s discovery no doubt has the scientific world buzzing with speculation, and if he’s right about what it is, it could well rewrite north American history. The latest find makes it seem Canada is a hot bed of discovery, because one of the greatest discoveries in the last decade was made in a mine in Alberta, Canada in 2011.
Canada Is A Hot Bed Of Discoveries
It was a fossil of a nodosaur dinosaur, but not just any fossil, but one of the most well-preserved fossils of its kind, down to its skin, scales and even the contents of its stomach. These heavily-armored herbivores walked the Earth between the Late Jurassic and Late Cretaceous periods, with this particular specimen dating back 110 million years. The specimen was so well preserved that it “might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago,” according to paleobiologist Jakob Vinther, who said while talking to National Geographic, “I’ve never seen anything like this.”
Legal Repercussions If Real
Now, in my mind Thompson’s find may have a great many legal repercussions as well, because if it turns out to actually be a massive monument it would establish that the land at one time belonged to a culture yet to be determined. If ancestral ties can be made to a specific group of people today, legal ownership of the land could be at question. If the face is only part of a much larger complex, it could be the greatest find since King Tut’s tomb, and then ownership issues will begin in earnest.
Real, Or Just really Cool?
I must admit that it sure looks like purposely carved and/or chiseled to me, but I’m no expert. Still, I find myself intrigued to say the least. Is it a natural occurrence, and man-made tribute or sign, or was it the product of civilizations from other worlds? If it’s real, what is it’s significance? What is the face looking at, or for? Regardless of what it turns out to be, bravo to Fred for being aware of it, and taking time to photograph it, because it sure enough brightened this old fart’s day.
