Ancient Astronaut Theory?

4 years ago

Does anyone have any opinions on the ancient astronaut theories that extraterrestrials have visited this planet in the distant past and helped us jump start our current intelligent existence? Anyone watch the history channel series Ancient Aliens? I’d like to see what others think on these theories – I think there is too much evidence to be ignored.

@christian92, Ah, my fault :)

But what makes a source reliable? Even our government isn’t reliable and lies and tells fairy tales. You never really now the whole truth until you go look for yourself.

Reliable is a spectrum, where very reliable on the one end and completely bullocks on the other end. I think that quantum mechanics is quite reliable even though I haven;t done the experiments myself. I don’t think our government isn’t reliable, I think it’s only unreliable in some self serving ways.

The problem lies in that you can’t always look for yourself, and you still need information. So you need to be skeptical or else you will only end up with rubbish in your head.

That said, I am more of a Nietzschean, so I don’t believe in Truth, only in perspectives you can overcome :)

@martijn, No problem :)
I don’t now what Nietzsche said exactly, but as far as I can see you have the same view as me: Understandings of the world which continuously evolve, right? So you never know the truth, but work yourself towards it by changing your understandings again and again… at least that’s how I (try to) do it. Did you mean that?

And you’re of course right, there are sources which are more reliable than others, but there is still that possibility.

So now we are completely off topic ;) But I think most has been said.

Yes, truth is bound to time and place, or, it’s just a different perspective.

Yes that was what I meant. Perfectly summed up :) One thing which I really like about Nietzsche is that you can never know truth, you can only become truthfull. That is to say, you can be true to your own truth, and you embody it, you are it in a sense.

Well ive seen quite a bit of the show. Thing is that you must not instantly believe everything that they are saying. Yes Puma Punku was an amazing feet of engineering for that time along with many other ancient structures. However, all we can do is speculate about how it was built and destroyed. There is a good chance that ancient people were helped by extraterrestrials but there is an equal chance that extraterrestrials didnt helped at all.
One thing i think is that we underestimate the ancient humans advancement. Just like Ray Bulter said, why shouldnt have people in the past had some form of technology that could have helped them build the monoliths. We thought that Thomas Edison had invented the light bulb until we discovered the Baghdad battery. But with very little advanced technology being discovered, all we can do is speculate.

Puma Punka is one of the best (if not the best example) examples. You really don’t need to go any further than the great pyramid. I’m not saying aliens for sure built all the ancient structures, but they are really very perplexing when you start comparing our modern building technology. There are stone blocks that would tip our most powerful cranes. Don’t gimme that thousand man rope theory. That breaks down when you start rounding corners of the pyramid as it grows taller. Do a little MORE research than the Ancient Aliens show and more and more curious details arise about many structures across the globe.

I think the evidence presented is inarguable.

Is there any evidence at all for alien interaction in these instances? I haven’t been able to find anything in my research of these cases that people have pointed out. Are they amazing? Absolutely. Baffling? Of course. But to make the leap from inability to understand to alien intervention seems a bit much. To me that’s no different than the creationist assuring themselves of God because they cannot understand our origins. Or not understanding how David Copperfield and Criss Angel do their tricks, and concluding that they must really possess magic.
I’m not saying it clearly wasn’t aliens, just that I haven’t seen it, if there is evidence please link me, I’d love to see it.

Just started watching Ancient Aliens, gotta say, not that impressed so far. They seem to use the word “proof” rather liberally. They also appear to have this sort of linear, if that’s the word I’m thinking of, view of intelligence and technology. As if it were unbelievable that a past civilization may have been more intelligent than us, or have technology that was more efficient than ours. I get that a lot of the stuff is mind boggling and unknown, but I have still yet to see ‘proof’ of alien intervention. It’s not that it wouldn’t be awesome if it were true, because it would, I would love for that to be the answer. But they haven’t shown that it is, and until then I think a healthy dose of skepticism will serve us well.

I’ve thought about this idea. About how possibly we are one giant intergalactic experiment or something of the sort. It is all entirely possible, but a more likely reason our brain doubled in size and made us who we are today is that we started eating psychedelic mushrooms off the ground and developed tools. Once we were able to sit and actually think without having to worry about being attacked/needing to hunt, that is when we began to evolve our brain to what it is today…and it’s still evolving, we are still evolving. However, the society we live in has domesticated us. They hold the keys to our consciousness and are slowing down evolution.

If it is a case that aliens are such a plausible scenario, then either aliens helped or they had technologies back then that could do it, either possibility is a mind-fuck.
