Experts on the Antikythera Mechanism


Antikythera Mechanism

Experts on the antikytheral mechanism agreed and disagreed on several theories about the ancient device, so to understand it better they built several identical replicas that actually work. Experts on the antikytheral mechanism were astounded at what they learned. 

A Greek ship that sank around the year 87 BC produced many treasures for modern day study, including furniture, luxuriously built jewelry, wine, pottery, and the devise now pondered by experts on the antikytheral mechanism. Experts on the antikytheral mechanism so named the discovery because the sunken ship was found off the coast of Antikytheral, a Greek island, in the year 1900.

Fortunately, experts on the antikytheral mechanism have been able to verify that the devise is ancient, because as almost always is the case skeptics have doubted its authenticity. 

We must especially show appreciation for the original experts on the antikytheral mechanism, the scuba divers who diligently dove down well over a hundred feet to the wreck, repeatedly for over a year!  One of these dedicated experts on the antikytheral mechanism even died, and two were crippled for life.  It took a great deal of courage, or possibly determination from these diving experts on the antikytheral mechanism, because at the time there wasn’t modern diving equipment, like scuba gear or breathing aids.  It took an average of nine minutes to dive for the treasures that would bring so much excitement to experts on the antikytheral mechanism.

What the experts on the antikytheral mechanism found was a greenish, wooden box that housed a gear driven device.  The device was badly corroded, and the wooden frame even broke up because of the experts on the antikytheral mechanism of the time not really understanding how to treat ancient wood.  Enough of the find was preserved for the experts on the antikytheral mechanism to learn that the ancient device was the world’s oldest known analog computer, and was no doubt designed to calculate the position of the stars, planets, sun and moon.  Understandably, great excitement surged through the group of experts on the antikytheral mechanism.

Numerous inscriptions were found on the mechanism, but a hidden inscription has been found with the use of three dimensional X-rays that experts on the antikytheral mechanism feel could help solve the mystery of the origin and purpose of the device.

With all that the experts on the antikytheral mechanism have discovered, gone is the attitude that modern day man is much more advanced intellectually than those who lived in times past.  In fact, the Bible tells of an account when God confused the languages spoken by man because “there is nothing that they may have in mind to do that will be unattainable for them,” proving that the experts on the antikytheral mechanism have learned first hand about man’s outstanding abilities.

Some say that the real experts on the antikytheral mechanism weren’t human at all, that extra terrestrial creatures were responsible for building the device. 

Wherever and however you believe the device came into existence, you can view the original in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, or if you can’t travel that far you can view an exact replication at the American Computer Museum in Bozeman, Montana.
