Its been a while since we last mentioned the Tunguska Blast – the 1908 mid-air explosion that happened over Russia and pretty much leveled every single tree that ever existed. Now a scientist has found something at the site – something he says proves that the blast occurred because benevolent aliens threw their spaceship in front of an enormous space-rock to save the earth from total destruction.
The Tunguska Blast happened in 1908 and leveled hundreds of square miles of trees. Some say it was caused by a mini black hole that briefly developed over a forest. Others say the massive devastation was caused by Nikola Tesla doing a practice run of his all-powerful death-ray.
It’s considered one of the great mysteries of the modern era because until now nobody has been 100% sure what happened.? Now somebody is sure though. They’re not necessarily right, mind you, but in their mind they’ve got all the confusion sorted out. He says it was a spaceship throwing itself in front of a meteor to spare human civilisation. His proof is quartz crystals he found at the site that have little etchings on them.
Fox News may clarify things for you:
“Dr. Yuri Labvin, president of the Tunguska Spatial Phenomenon Foundation, insists that an alien spacecraft sacrificed itself to prevent a gigantic meteor from slamming into the planet above Siberia on June 30, 1908. The result was was the Tunguska event, a massive blast estimated at 15 megatons that downed 80 million trees over nearly 100 square miles. Eyewitnesses reported a bright light and a huge shock wave, but the area was so sparsely populated no one was killed…Labvin thinks quartz slabs with strange markings found at the site are remnants of an alien control panel, which fell to the ground after the UFO slammed into the giant rock.”
And here’s what Labvin told Macedonia Online, – the news source that originally ran the story:
“Aliens downed Tunguska meteorite to protect our planet from devastation, stated Russian scientist Yuriy Lavbin about the 100 year old mystery surrounding the massive Siberian explosion. He showed 10 quartz crystals that he found at the place of the meteorite?s crash. Several of the crystals have holes in between, so they can be united in a chain. What could this chain serve for? Besides, some crystals have strange drawings on them. We don't have any technologies that can print such kind of drawings on crystals. We also found ferrum silicate that can not be produced anywhere, except in space.?
Off the bat let us just say that the ‘ferrum silicate only found in space’ argument is weak. After all – we’re talking about a meteor here – and where do they come from? If you answered Thailand there you’re wrong. The presence of something like that would certainly not indicate a spaceship. Also – ‘Ferrum Silicate’ doesn’t seem to exist. Go ahead – Google it.
Next – the website that originally ran the story, although it’s clearly from Macedonia, is written in English, and is apparently on a strict budget that doesn’t include editors of any sort. It doesn’t seem to us that a low brow and largely unknown website without any kind of financial backing whatsoever would be the first place a scientist of one sort or the other would run with earth-shattering news.
Also – what’s the deal with all those control board crystals having holes drilled in them so they can be united in a chain? Are the aliens plummeting through interstellar space using a caveman calculator as their chief navigational tool? Really?
Lastly, does the great scientist Dr. Yuri Labvin exist anywhere outside of this story? Yeah – Google him too. We couldn’t find anything else. Granted we didn’t look farther than page two of the search results, but still.
Still – the thought of a bunch of aliens on a spaceship yelling something like ‘For the Queen!’ just before throwing themselves in front of sure-death is amusing.
We bet it probably happened. We honestly do.
