Could some meteorites be starship debris?
 
Is it possible that what we think is a meterorite is really part of a spaceship that was blown apart eons ago and a piece of it reached Earth?

After watching the rock that blew up over Russia recently I thought, what if it wasn't a meteor, but a warp core or some other energy source from a long destroyed spaceship that got sucked into our atmosphere and detonated before impact. I understand they actually found pieces of the meteorite, but who is to say some ancient alien race didn't hollow out asteroids and use them for spaceships millions of years ago?

That sounds a bit Tachy -- I miss that guy.

The bits they've recovered show the original body was probably a chondrite (stony) meteorite.

Oh no, some facts got in the way!

Is it possible that what we think is a meteorite is actually a poop from some massive, asteroid-eating space creature? If so then did this creature just eat some asteroids, poop nonchalantly, move along, and then its turd just happened to make its way to Earth, or did this creature deliberately throw its poop at us?

On the issue of space creatures throwing their poop at Earth, my personal stance is that I'm against it. It should throw its poop at Neptune instead. Neptune totally deserves it.

Is it possible that some meteorites are actually bits of the Earth, destroyed in some future cataclysm and hurled back in time via a spacial anomaly?

Is it possible? Yes, but then, many things are technically possible.
Is it probable? No.

It would require a very unusual set of circumstances for such an event to take place. Without significant, irrefutable evidence, there's simply no way to know.

The green, glowing meteorites are fragments of what used to be the planet Krypton. They can really mess up Superman.
