“Perhaps we’ve never been visited by aliens because they have looked upon Earth and decided there’s no sign of intelligent life.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
Well, it’s my birthday today and I’m now 31 years old! Holy heck. I don’t think age really matters all that much, because I’m decidedly always going to stay a fully grown man-child. I never want my excitement and curiosity for life to leave me, so I’ll remain high energy and curious until the day I die.
Lately, I’ve been watching this program on Netflix called “Ancient Aliens” and it’s soooo good. The series combines archaeological discoveries, religion and science to raise questions about a lot of our past history and how it could be connected to ancient aliens.
Most of the thought provoking series relies upon the kind of evidence that leaves historians and scientists baffled, which is not quite evidence, but it’s so compelling. I find there to be so much possibility in these scientific arguments. Of course they are mainly theories, but I think it would be amazing if scientists began to take alien origin stories more seriously as a possibility. My inner Sci-Fi geek would be so happy.
There’s an argument that human technological advancement might have exploded in the past 10,000 years because of alien intervention. Some argue that God may have always been a metaphor for these aliens or an alien leader and that they may have even helped to instill us with our greater intelligence, as well as technological advancements. Some scientists believe this may have happened through genetic alterations to our genes and that certain humans may have been privy to bits of information from our guardian aliens throughout history. Some argue voices heard by people as deities could have been our extraterrestrial guardians steering us in one direction or another. How fascinating would that be? 😛
Some of the “evidence” is actually quite compelling. Ancient Sumerians who lived about 4500-2000BC, described the “Annunaki”, as a group of aliens visiting earth 450,000 years ago to have altered homo sapiens as a species in order to mine Gold for them to fix the damaged atmosphere of their planet. Nibiru is supposedly an undiscovered planet in our solar system, which is on an elliptical orbit around the sun and only comes close to Earth once every 3600 years when these aliens can visit more easily. It is said that the ancient Sumerians, although having primitive technology had an idea of exactly the right number of planets in the solar system + 1. All being of relative size as we now know factually today, how could they have known this without assistance?
Think an extra planet sounds like complete bullshit? Here’s a page from NASA’s website confirming the possibility of another planet with an elongated orbit in our solar system based on surrounding evidence gathered in space. It’s supposed to have 10 times the mass of Earth. I suppose if this planet were ever discovered then it would raise a lot of questions about the plausibility of these origin stories! Which would be exciting.
Another intriguing set of arguments revolved around some historical stone masonry that had been discovered in stone age civilizations with incredible precision. Some having been difficult or next to impossible to recreate with even modern technology; including ancient pyramids, Stonehenge-type rock formations and giant stone carvings.
They’ve even gone as far as to hint at the Third Reich having sought special scientific knowledge through extraterrestrials and religious artifacts for their technological advancements. They’ve also claimed that they may have created a possible time machine. Where would Hitler even want to travel to, I wonder? There are also many instances of military men claiming to have been in contact with aliens or alien technology.
Now, while a lot of this may be stretched truths, misinterpreted science or the lack thereof, it’s fun to think about and imagine. Personally, I see no reason why this is harder to believe as a possibility than mythological Gods of sorts, in fact, I actually find this much easier to believe. It would actually make sense alongside religion because they imply that we were created in the image of the aliens, similar to how religions imply we were created in the image of God.
However, I am a highly scientific person, and my mind is open, but I do not commit to a theory unless I have verifiable proof. It makes for one hell of a theory though and I love it! I highly recommend anybody who has a curious mind or an interest in aliens to give this program a watch and I guarantee, if nothing else, you will be entertained.
Time to go worship my alien overlords now. Perhaps I’ll be one of the lucky ones to get abducted and if I do, I’ll be sure to blog about it. Although, if the legends are true, I may have a hard time sitting for a while afterward… which may call for a break from blogging.
