Found by British researcher and author of ‘Atlantis and the Silver City’ Peter Daughtrey, the intriguing object composed entirely out of stone was found in Algarve, Portugal and is believed to date back over 7,000 years. Its peculiar characteristics –like the design of what seems to be the double helix of DNA— makes this ‘cosmic’ egg one of the most intriguing objects found to date. Interestingly, the double helix model wasn’t found until 1953. The obvious questions we need to ask —if it is in fact the Double helix of DNA— is how such a symbol could exist on a stone egg that some say was carved approximately 7000 years ago?
Most people refer to the artifact as a ‘massive stone around six feet in length’ resembling the cosmic creation egg.
In addition to its size, the fact that the artifact has a strange set of symbols engraved on its surface have made the artifact very popular among researchers, some who claim it carries a hidden message mainstream scholars have ignored.
If the peculiar design engraved on its surface is in fact the double helix of DNA, it poses numerous questions which make quite a few experts very uncomfortable.
Many of the so-called creation eggs depict snakes wrapped around it. However, looking at the stone egg found in Algarve, researchers are skeptical whether or not it depicts a serpent. No one can argue against the fact that this strange artifact may in fact depict one of the earliest representations of DNA.
However, such artifacts are not only present in Europe. Similar artifacts have been found in China, Egypt and throughout the rest of the world. These so-called ‘creation eggs’ were used to explain how life on Earth began. M any ancient cultures were firmly convinced that ‘Gods’ who came down from the heavens brought the ‘Cosmic Egg’ to Earth and mankind was created from it.
Interestingly, Daughtrey believes that this fascinating item has a profound connection with the lost city/continent of Atlantis, more accurately the small village of Silves.
The mysterious artifact can be found today in the Lagos Museum in Algarve.
According to the museum, the stone is an ‘ancient standing menhir,’ and similar objects can be found all over the western coast of modern-day Portugal, but also in different locations around the globe.
But what if it is just a popular ancient symbol? What if there isn’t anything special to it? If we look back at different ancient cultures we will find that ‘Eggs’ are a very common symbol due to the fact that eggs are actually found all over the planet, which in turn people connected that eggs give rise to life, which is why ancient man utilized the egg symbol as a way of illustrating ‘new life’.
However, the symbolism found on the surface of the massive stones what has caused admiration from some researchers who claim that whoever created the curious illustrations must have had access to specific tools, whereas Bronze tools would be enough.
The central symbol on the surface of the ‘standing menhir’ curiously resembles a rod. The Rod was a powerful symbol connected with ‘creation’ in many cultures. If we look back at history, we will find that in ancient Mesopotamia the Rod was considered a symbol of the power of the gods. It also resembles the Caduceus, the ‘staff’ carried by ancient Greek God Hermes. Interestingly Moses also had a similar rod.
What do you think about this curious artifact? And what do you think about the fact that similar objects are found all around the planet? Is this another global phenomenon? Does it resemble a rod, or is it possible that it is one of the most ancient symbols of DNA found on the planet?
The truth is that the world egg, cosmic egg or mundane egg is a mythological motif found in the creation myths of many cultures and civilizations. One of the earliest ideas of “egg-shaped Cosmos” comes from some of the Sanskrit scriptures.
