Not from this Planet
There are people today, alien astronaut theorists, who believe that in our ancient history, our planet was visited by aliens.
These people point to the Pyramids and other ancient monoliths and say that our ancestors could not have built those without extraterrestrial help.
They say that the shear magnitude of the task, even with modern day tools, is almost impossible.
They will point to ancient cave drawings that could represent drawings of spacemen or aliens. They speculate that our ancestors must have been drawing what they had seen.
They also claim that, according to our generally accepted history, many of these ancient civilizations did not have any contact with each other, yet some of the ideas are similar. They claim that it is unlikely that different civilizations separated by thousands of miles would have come up with such similar ideas, especially considering the amount of work put into each.
So, their conclusion is that we were visited by aliens who spread these ideas around the world and assisted each civilization in meeting their goals.
The trouble is, they have no proof and are unsure of any ideas why the aliens would do such a thing.
- Have We Been Visited by Aliens.
There are many stories of aliens visiting our ancient ancestors. This highlights a couple of them that although they are so well known, are perhaps a little more believable.
Obviously, without proof, the ancient alien theorists have their skeptics.
These skeptics will say that the drawings are just from dreams.
They say that the Pyramids could have been built by man. This, even though the best scientific guess as to how long the Great Pyramid took to build, meant that one 20 ton stone was cut, transported, aligned and set every 4 minutes [not allowing for darkness or breaks].
They say that there may have been trade, therefore interaction of ideas, between these civilizations, it is just that we have not yet unearthed the proof of it.
Basically these skeptics do not want to believe, not without proof.
It is amazing that so many people can be skeptics, yet readily accept religious books that often have even less circumstantial evidence.
- Are Pyramids Really Egyptian?
All we think we know about Pyramids, is what we are told but does what we are told, make any sense? What doesn't add up and why?
We Are the Aliens
Then there is a much smaller group that has the theory that we, humans, are in fact the aliens on the planet – crazy!
Or is it?
We are the only animals on the planet that do not have either fur, thick hides, feathers or scales.
We are the only animals that need artificial clothing or shelters to protect us from the elements ON OUR OWN PLANET.
We are the only animal on the planet that will kill for killings sake.
Is our eternal longing to reach the stars just curiosity or is it a deep seated home sickness?
Did our ancestors settle this planet, and then because of a lack of relevant materials or lack of knowledge, allow their technology to disappear over several generations?
After all, even our astronauts today cannot build their own spacecraft or Moon Buggy.
- Do Snakes Prove Ancient Aliens?
Some of the ancient Sumerian stories seem unbelievable. What if they were true?
I am sure that any scientist will tell you that first, you have to have a theory and then you go on to either prove or disprove it.
So why don’t we treat our history in the same manner?
We should not lightly brush aside any theory until it has been proven or disproven.
Anyway, if we really wanted to, we could spend the same money on these “crazy” theories, as we do on either space exploration or religion and quickly disprove them.
OR COULD WE?
- So, You Think Our Cities are Modern?
We consider new cities to be modern. Are they really new ideas or are they actually 4000 years old?
- Ancient Aliens, Logically
Skeptics like to argue ancient alien theories with science but let us argue their science with logic.
- Aliens Grave Found in Africa
An alien graveyard has been found in Africa. Once again, as in other similar cases, after one immediate report, secrecy seems to take over. What is it that the authorities do not want us to know and why?
