From the weird files: 'They're out of this world!': Mysterious purple spheres found in the desert spark speculation

The look like they simply landed in one spot, appearing out of nowhere. And they're pretty. Of course the Daily Mail has the story, along with great pictures.

'They're out of this world!': Mysterious purple spheres found in the desert spark speculation
"Tuscon locals are baffled by the appearance of thousands of tiny, purple sphere that have appeared in the middle of a desert. Geradine Vargas and her husband discovered the strange collection Sunday while on a walk. 'We were taking photos around the area and we just.... I mean, how could you miss this?' Geradine said. 'It was just like glittering in the sun.' 'It's just one of those things that you've never seen before.'

"It's just one of those things that you've never seen before"? Really? Ho-hum, here is something weird and unprecedented and oh yah, it's just one of those things?

That's where we're at. Weird things happen so often we say, oh well, here is another one. Like when the mysterious creatures washed up on a Hawaii beach and no one, even biologists, had ever seen them before. They were purple too, looked like pea-sized crabs. In that story about the Oahu mystery creatures, it was reported,

"The south shore of Oahu is being invaded by something strange from sea, that even has sand crabs running for cover. "It's the first time I've seen this, I've never seen it before," says beach goer Bruce Kuwana. "It's really weird, it looks like you want to eat it like a little berry," says beach goer Sonya Lake. "There are probably millions I'd say," says beach goer Scott Paddock."

In the Tuscon Arizona purple spheres mystery, the mound was completely isolated from the rest of the terrain.

Here is the Arizona media's reporting on the purple desert spheres if you want to read the local angle on it.

Weird and interesting! I think the earth is so complex and beautiful. Who knows what there is left to be discovered. I know that Marine biologist Bob Ballard was surprised to have discovered the underwater vents deep in the ocean that sustained life- not by photosynthesis but by chemistry. There is so much we don't know, but when we are glorified and in New Jerusalem with Jesus, perhaps we will know so much more about the earth and all that is in it!

  1. I am afraid this is just the beginning. With all of the releasing of methane hydrates and other chemicals because of the Deep Water horizon "accident", and the LA. sink hole who knows? God knows and we can rest in that and by the way don't eat them.
