Klerksdorp Spheres are "out of place" artifacts, found in sedimentary rock, in a coal / diamond mine near Ottosdal, South Africa. It is believed these objects are up to 3.8 billion years old. These objects are spherical/ovoid shaped -- similar to how a planet like Earth or Jupiter are "squished" -- all planets are not perfectly round, they are "bulged" at their equator due to the planet's rotation.

All Klerksdorp Spheres have 2 or more parallel lines which run around the equator. These lines are always equidistant from each other. Some argue that the medal composition is not a type of metal which exists naturally on Earth. However, others have stated that these metals can exist on Earth, if chemical components are mixed. Somehow, although the Earth's pressure and heat can create the coal and diamonds in the mine, these objects were not destroyed.

The exterior shell of each ball is a consistent number of centimeters thick, with a gooey substance at the center, which turns to dust when exposed to oxygen. Each sphere is balanced on the center of gravity of the sphere -- when you hold it in your hand, it feels solid and balanced, like it has a weighted exterior, but not so much a weighted core. They also have a consistent radius from the core at all points on their surfaces. It feels like a "warm" rock -- similar to the type at Stonehenge (which has both warm and cold rock). There is no smell, and you cannot crush it with your hand.

These objects are clearly made by some sort of intelligent life. But by whom? Who knew metallurgy back then, and why make hundreds of these things?

From carbon dating, the Earth is estimated to be about 4.5 or 4.8 billion years old. The Klerksdorp Spheres are carbon-dated to 3.8 billion years. Which means, these spheres existed on Earth while it was only 1 billion years old. I personally was not aware that the Earth was a solid mass at 1 billion years.

Modern humans have only been known to exist for the last 4000 or 6000 years - the height of Egyptian, Sumarian, and Mesopotamian cultures. Cor-Magnon humans existed 12,000 - 35,000 years ago. As apes, humans were swinging from trees 120,000 years ago. Even dinosaurs were supposed to have died out 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period. As far as we understand from linear history, no humans existed 3.8 billion years ago.
