Carved Bell Found in 300 Million Year Old Coal

Dr. Donald Ryles' 5 Of DiamondsI have know about this for many years but thought many of you might not. It is truly strange.

 BELL IN COALIn 1944, as a ten year old boy, Newton Anderson dropped a lump of coal in his basement and found that it contained this bell inside. The bituminous coal that was mined near his house in Upshur County West Virginia is supposed to be about 300 million years old! What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal ascribed to the Carboniferous Period? According to Norm Sharbaugh’s book Ammunition (which includes several “coal anecdotes”) the bell is an antediluvian artifact (made before the Genesis Flood). The Institute for Creation Research had the bell submitted to the lab at the University of Oklahoma. There a nuclear activation analysis revealed that the bell contains an unusual mix of metals, different from any known modern alloy production (including copper, zinc, tin, arsenic, iodine, and selenium).

Genesis 4:22 states that Tubal-Cain was “an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron…” Perhaps when his civilization came to an end in the flood, this bell was buried with a mass of vegetation that became coal and ended up thousands of years later in Newt Anderson’s coal bin. The bell was prominently featured in the 1992 CBS docudrama production called Ancient Secrets of the Bible and is now part of the Genesis Park collection. Later on, Newton Anderson spent a great deal of time researching the demon atop the bell. He discovered similarities to the Babylonian Southwest Wind Demon and the Hindu deity Garuda. Garuda is sometimes depicted on top of bells, as is the Egyptian Isis. Demonic worship seems to take on similar forms in various cultures (like the Venus figurines from disparate lost cultures and the ancient fascination with pyramids), which doesn’t necessitate that they were culturally related. At our request, Mr. Anderson was examined by an expert polygraph specialist to further validate his claims. The reports can be seen here.

A handful of other such accounts have been recorded, including the intricate gold chain found in coal (Sanderson, Ivan T., Uninvited Visitors, 1967, pp. 195-196.) and the cast iron pot found in a coal seam at the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, OK (now archived at Creation Evidence Museum).

    • Actually Lumuria pre dates atlantis by thousands of year, they did co-exist for a few thousand year though up until the fall, The people of atlantis where the opposite of lumuria,atlantis was technological and very male energy dominated and seemed to bring about division and lumurians are very spiritual and unity based. Atlantis wanted to take over and was testing some powerful stuff that ruined everything and caused the fall. Where just beginning to rise from the depths now and reclaim our inifinate potential, the awakening process is beautiful. Peru is the place to be right now.

  1. Examine the “demon” at the top of the bell and you can see that it is not a demon, rather a primitive key to a lock.
    The grooves cut in the arms and the round cap at the top of the head support key structure.

  2. The bell is from the sub-continent of India. The figure at the top is not a demon, but insted it is a bird belinging to God Vishnu. In India these bells made out of brass are still very common. My mother owns an exact same bell. Also keep in mind that all continents were connected at that time as well.

    One will have no problem proving what I have stated here at all. The bell is Indian, and the birds name is Gruda. This is fact and not a guess.


    • it is a garuda bell!! DO you think this bell is as old as they say it is? I think it could be, its amazing to think of the monk that was ringing it. 😀
