BASHKIRIA, Russia, August 7, 2015 /Daily Offbeat/ -- Siberia is best known as the arctic area where Russian political prisoners were banished in the Gulag. But an advanced civilization may have been based in the area 120 million years ago.

In 1999, Dr. Alexander Chuvyrov was conducting archeological researches in Siberia. During excavations conducted in the area of Bashkiria (Russia), Chuvyrov discovered a stone that had an engraving that described the area during the Cretaceous period. The Dashka stone is a unique artifact of unknown origin that allegedly has a three-dimensional map of the Ural region. The stone map referenced a the presence of an advanced civilization on Earth that dated back 120 million years.

Researchers said the Dashka Stone constitutes evidence of the existence of an ancient civilization with high technical and cultural levels. Creationists said the stone was evidence of the civilization of people before and shortly after the Global Flood.

The Dashka stone measured 1.5 meters by one meter and was 20 cm thick. Scientists at Bashkir state university, headed by the Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Alexander Nikolayevich Chuvyrov, reported strange drawings engraved on this rock that archeologists and scientists said was the most ancient map of the world.

Current theories postulate that the first human beings were recorded between three and five million years ago. The stone seems to have been engraved using tools that are unknown on Earth. This engraving is thought to have been performed using technologies that are still unknown up to this very day.

According to analyses, surveys of the area could have been drawn up 120 million years ago.

It has not been possible to determine whether this map made of stone had been crafted by some human civilization or by extraterrestrial people that would have come down to Earth between sixty and one hundred and forty million years ago!

The fact remains that this Dashka Stone has nothing to do with the most ancient rock engravings found on Earth (neither in the technique used to perform the engraving nor in the scenes depicted) that only date back to - at most - a few million years ago, according to some archeologists!

The irrigation system engraved on this Dashka has gigantic proportions: 1640-feet (500 meter-long) wide canals comprising twelve flood barriers. The engravings have never been deciphered and do not correspond to any language talked in the region nor to any human language used since the dawn of time.
