Personally, I believe that we have been visited by beings from another planet. I believe there is ample evidence that supports this.
However, that said....the show "Ancient Aliens" is nothing but entertainment. They routinely cite things as evidence of ancient ETs, when really,
some basic understanding of Art History would allow them to come to the right conclusion.
For example, it was common for artists to depict "God" as a glowing disc, based on references in the Bible. Indeed, this lead to the adoption of the
halo being used later on to depict Saints and others touched by God. So, when there is a disc in art, with a beam shooting down, it is really a
depiction of God and then the beam representing being touched by God. Instead, the show's producers ignore this well known symbolism and instead try
to say it's a ship shooting a laser beam, as evidence of ancient ETs (even though the title, background of the piece explicitly says what it is).
That's just ONE example of course, there are tons of them in each episode of it.
So, back to the original topic. What if it were true? What if we were being visited?
We'd have to ask ourselves WHY? I think that's the first one.
I mean, they don't seem interested in conquering us (kind of have to reveal yourself first), and they seem to have been visiting a while (since at
least the 40's, if not much earlier).
They don't seem interested in helping us (again, kind of have to reveal yourself, and the help).
So, what do they want? Granted, they may not think like we do, but has to be some reason.
Personally, I think we're being "contained", so they're just checking on us...kind of like jailers. If this is true, then obviously we just
haven't demonstrated some kind of capability that would entitle us to "membership" into the galactic club (assuming there is one)...... Whether our
ability to war, or destroy the planet, or maybe even we just smell funny, who knows?
