Is the Dashka Stone a Hoax?
The Ural Region
The Ural Region is a large geographical landmass that has an area of 2.225 million km² that comprises the Ural Mountains and creates a natural barrier of separation between Europe and Asia.
The Ural region is known for its gorgeous scenery, unspoiled rivers and out-of-this-world Aurora Borealis. However, to most historians, archaeologists and connoisseurs of the unknown and mysterious, what truly captivates their intellect is its incredible past and its very large collection of strange and out-of-place (Oorpats) artifacts.
Settlements of early humans are known to have been populating the area as far back as 35 000 years ago, with many still undated and many more undiscovered, have most historians believing that maybe we could trace their origins even further back in time.
Out of the myriads of strange artifacts found in the Ural region, there is one that defies all of human history. An alleged 120-year-old map of unknown origin known as the Dashka Stone or Map of Creator.
The Map of Creator
The Dashka Stone, also known as the Creator’s Map, is a unique and controversial artifact that is believed by some to be a handbook used by God to create the world.
The Map of Creator was discovered in 1999 by Professor Alexander Chuvyrov and it is believed to be a three-dimensional map of the Ural.
It has puzzled researchers ever since because, by all modern historical understandings, the stone should not exit.
The stone is a three-layer slab measuring 1.5 metres and 20 cm in thickness. The layers are said to be made of porcelain, silicon and ceramic or cement in the base of the dolomite. It allegedly depicts a map of ‘cosmic heights’. Showing a system of waterworks, channels, rivers and dams that are 15 000 kilometres long.
The Dashka Stone 3-layer structure suggests it was alloyed and combined by ancient builders who were deeply skilled with advanced technologies as well as cultural levels. It shows that it was artificially produced by an ancient civilization with advanced technology that made a birds-eye view of the region.
A team of Russian and Chinese specialists from cartography, physics, mathematics, geology, chemistry, and ancient Chinese languages have determined the rock to be between 50 million years old and 120 million years old, based on seashells encrusted on the stone.
The Stone’s unknown origins have many believing that it could be proof of ancient technology or that it was handed to humanity by God, as a blueprint of the area around them.
Is the Dashka Stone a Hoax?
The short answer is yes.
The long answer is that the original source of the story comes from a Russian website called Pravda known for its inaccuracies and controversial propaganda. The story was created to reel in those who have a passion for the mysterious and the unknown, or, in common words, conspiracy theorists. And also to reel in religious orthodox creationists, because, if believed, then it would show that God handed a blueprint to mankind in the annals of civilization.
Upon further inspection, it quickly becomes evident that there is no Professor Alexander Chuvyrov associated with Bashkir State University, past or present. Not one single research has been written by him on the subject of the Dashka Stone, or for that matter, on any other topic. Nor are there any other papers by his so-called team of Chinese and Russian experts, no mentions of his name or records are ever found.
There is not one single museum, university, library, or other viewing room in the world credited to have housed or be currently housing the Map of Creator. There are no new updated images since its alleged discovery in 1999.
Lastly, every single source on the Internet that can be found about the Dashka Stone, links back to the same Pravda website, which is notorious for spreading misinformation and propaganda.
Historical anachronisms are truly loved by everyone, myself included. But sometimes one must realize that ‘not all that is gold glitters’, and that not everything you read on the Internet is real.
