    What do you think about aliens jump starting civilizations in the ancient past?

    Do you think it is possible that extra-terrestrials assisted humanity in the ancient past.  I have been watching shows on ancient aliens and some of what the researchers claim does make a lot of sense.  For example many of the ancient cultures have structures that are man made, but we would have a hard time making them today even with our modern technology.  Ex the pyramids of Egypt and other pyramids around the world.

    I have always wondered and have even read about views that the  being(s) we know as God(s) were from an Alien civilization.

    We came from Somewhere and if one believes in God(s) they also had to come from somewhere.

    Also as you said so many unexplained things on this earth  makes one have to keep and open mind to many different possibilities.

    Claiming that extra terestrial aided acient civilizations in thier monuments discredits those civilizations.  How them made them is nothing short of extraordinary.  There is no evidence that extra terrestrials came to help them other then wild speculation. 
    As for the eqyptian pyramids: they were built from the outside in, a building technique that has been unused since thier creation. 
    Civilization is not a steady progress and accumilation of technoly and techniques.  It is a roller coaster as knowlege is gained and lost.
    A lever to trow spears helped our ancestors kill huge ice age beasts, but was forgoten until the last couple of centuries.  What a weapon of war that would have made during the middle ages!

      From looking at the research, I would say that to think that it is plausible to think that the possibility of other world help may have helped our ancestors. There has also been many reports of such sightings o"UFOs".

    There are possible intelligent beings that do not have physical forms. Since most ancient cultures were aware of trance states, they certainly have made certain contacts with other dimensions. In fact anyone can do it. There are no limits. The priests and shamans tend to go far out. More than the average person would dare go.

      I do understand that there are such people.  I am just curious to know how thousands of years ago 70 ton stone block were being moved miles away and then stacked together with such precision.  Our best modern day thinkers do not know for certain.

    Some speculation say that aliens had started the human civilization. That we are genetically engineered by aliens. The quran of muslim talks about how the earth and human begun in a scientific basis not likely the bible which is more idiomatic way of writing typically written by human (apostles,phrophets, wise men etc.) and as far as the researchers investigate, there is acquisitions that quran was actually written by aliens because human cannot specifically describe what really happen since the beginning of the world. But the speculation about aliens remain unresolved.

    theory says that to attain the speed to reach a distant planet in reasonable amount of time is to enter another dimension, so there is little difference in space travel and dimension travel... if you believe in a hereafter and a herebefore, they you have to consider regular ol' birth process to be some kind of tech of entering the "Earth" dimension so it becomes a question of what tech is employed for reaching earth determining who is alien or not

    Well, I can't help but giggle a bit at the "For example many of the ancient cultures have structures that are man made, but we would have a hard time making them today even with our modern technology." You know, when I had classes about prehistory, I learnt one thing - just because we do not know how it's done, doesn't mean that the people who created it didn't know it as well, not to mention that people who do some craft can re-create it as well, given the right tools. The funniest example our teacher gave us was usage of stone axes. The archeologists were unable to cut a tree down, no matter how hard they tried - and when they finally managed to do it, it was so exhausting it wouldn't be really worth the energy, especially for prehistorian people. But then they gave the stone axes to professional woodcutters - and plop! Worked like charm.

    I also think that one important thing in ancient times is that more than we now, they were "doomed" to use the trial and error method in probably everything they did. It probably wasn't written (or recorded in any other way) how many times some structure fell on its builders before they figured the perfect way how to build it. We just see the results, but now what actually led to them. And about the pyramids all around the world - well, it's quite proven fact that old civilizations had been able to travel quite far from the place they originated. Figures they would also carry their ideas about how things should be built with them, no?

    Oh, and just to say it aloud - I used to be great fan of Däniken and his works. But after reading several of his books, some of his reasoning became so absurd to my eyes taht I'm unabe to take him at least a bit seriously anymore. Definitely says a lot about human race, if nearly everything about their civilizations had to be started by outside intervention, eh?
