When Reddit user TramStopDan discovered this mysterious wooden box lying in a dumpster, he couldn’t just leave it there. He had to take it home and see what was hidden inside.
After unlocking the case, he was baffled by its contents–so much so that he was prompted to post his findings on the internet to ask the world for some perspective. Needless to say, the post went viral, with folks all over the world chiming in to figure out what it all meant.
As one commentor explained:
Apparently the guy went slightly insane over finding extraterrestrials in the bible. He was obsessed with “living creatures” described in Ezekiel 10 that are described as having four faces: “the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.”
I guess he really wanted for that to be an alien encounter.
The case measured 29″ x 38″ and was far from ordinary; some people may even consider it a treasure chest of sorts. It contained a collection of world maps, technical drawings, personal belongings, religious and extraterrestrial illustrations, and a few posters. We’ve definitely never seen anything quite like this before.
The owner’s story is still shrouded in ambiguity, as no one has come forward to claim the case’s contents.
