UFO hunters announce discovery of ancient alien cell phone
Archaeologists find ancient clay tablets etched with cuneiform writing all the time, but one alleged discovery has captured the interest of numerous UFO hunters.
The object is an earthenware version of a Nokia-like cell phone that dates back to the 13th century BC.
Some suggest aliens used the mock device to introduce the people of Mesopotamia to the wonders of advanced technology.
If that was the case, the experiment was clearly an unsuccessful one.
Adding to the mystery is where the phone was reportedly found – modern day Austria.
Though Mesopotamians themselves never made it that far from the Fertile Crescent, an easy explanation would be that the aliens did.
Perhaps frustrated by their failed attempt to introduce Earthlings to the future, they simply tossed it out of a UFO window and carried on with their journey home.
Of course, there is always the possibility aliens had nothing to do with the phone.
Time travelers could just as easily have left it behind.
