On the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, “ancient astronaut theorists” reexamine the work of archaeologists, historians, and folklorists to discover evidence of long-standing extraterrestrial interaction with humans.
According to these theorists, the Nazca Lines in Peru served as aerial markers and runways for spacecraft. Mayan and Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, the Moai of Easter Island, and Bolvia’s Puma Punku – all constructed by or through the aid of extraterrestrials. Angelic demonic visions in Hebrew, Christian and Hindu texts– aliens. Vimanas (mythical flying machines) in Sanskrit stories– spaceships. In fact, anything that flies in mythology is “spacecraft” and all gods in “primitive” cultures are, in fact, extraterrestrials. The arguments are a bit far-reaching at times, the logic a little scattered. I consider some of their points to be valid; most I just consider.
However, watching this show led me down a rabbit hole of Internet entertainment I would never have clicked through otherwise. My curiosity awakened, I started watching documentaries like The Silent Revolution of Truth, a film that chronicles the spectacularly unusual life of Billy Meier. Meier is described as “a real life combination of Indian Jones, Han Solo and Larwence of Arabia” and claims to have had regular, lifelong contact with humanoid aliens from Pleiades.
Then, there’s Moon Rising. From the YouTube description:
For over 50 years we have been told and convinced the Moon is nothing more than a black and white desolate rock with moon dust and craters. The thousands of photos released to the public have always presented a black and white Moon. Even the most recent Hubble Photographs of the Moon are black and white. NASA continues to perpetuate the “lie” that the Moon is black and white. Moon Rising is the first film that presents Full Color Photography of the Moon.
This program also explains how and why NASA is covering up the truth about the moon. If you are willing to overlook poor production quality, you can learn a lot. For example, the moon is hollow and rings like a bell.
I’ve also discovered that there are 57 species of aliens, and I have been introduced to colorful folks like David Icke, who believes that a race of shape-shifting, reptilian humanoids controls humanity. The more clicks in, the weirder it gets, the more I’m entertained.
Of course there are a lot of wackadoos out there. But what do you guys think? Are we alone?
