A small (45-cm or 18-inch) metal saucer made headlines in the U.K. press in 1957 after it was found in Silpho Moor near Scarborough in Yorkshire.

It was cut into pieces and examined – and then lost for 50 years. It recently turned up in the London Science Museum.

This saucer-like object has a bizarre new age connection. The Yorkshire Post reported on 8 February 1957 that its copper bottom was covered in hieroglyphics.

According to Live Science,

The Silpho Moor saucer also contained a small book, the Post reported, covered in more hieroglyphics, which a Scarborough café owner claimed to decipher as a warning from an alien named Ullo about atomic war: ‘You will improve or disappear.’

Metallurgists and other experts who studied the Silpho Moor object determined that it had no special properties and had never been to outer space, the Post reported, a journey that leaves telltale signatures in metal

UFOs and aliens tend to make headlines every now and then.

UFOs seem to have an evolution connection as well.

If life evolved here, it should also have evolved elsewhere, they seem to believe.

Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell believes in UFOs, and the SETI folks are searching for alien life everywhere.

Some evolutionists speculate what aliens might look like , others are concerned with how to communicate with them, and some, like professor Stephen Hawking, are afraid of them.

Unfortunately (for them, that is), all alleged signals have been false alarms.

In other words, there is no proof of extraterrestrial life or evolution anywhere.
