No the hypothesis is not a hoax.
The so-called "evidence" is bogus.
AAH is just an hypothesis with no evidence base.

Quite so. There's nothing wrong with the hypothesis other than it being very vague. If there are aliens out there, if they're anything at all like us then they might be motivated to visit humans on Earth and possibly guide us in some way they think is "better."

Unfortunately, looking at an old carving and seeing something that looks like a flying saucer (therefore that's what it is) is not a good way to conduct a valid scientific study. Archeology may turn up a legitimate anachronistic artifact someday. On the Moon, maybe. Running batches of DNA scans through some pattern recognition software may turn up a concealed message. But old myths carved into rocks really isn't very good evidence.

I guess it doesn't hurt to have a hobby, and investigate the ancient alien notion. We're curious. Why else are we here? But it would be nice if people did more positive research instead of just confirming their bias with questionable evidence.

It's certainly what brought me here.
I've been looking into it since well before 1980. But way back then it was a much slower process and more fraught with error.

I've come from one end of the spectrum to the other in that time.

Ufology could have been a true and noble grass roots movement of truth seekers. But Ufology wanting to embrace every possibility, and not establish some sort of oversight, quickly filled with conman seeking to make a quick buck.

I wish people would study and take note of two items.

One, Houdini vs Medium Mina Crandon
Two, Cottingley Fairies and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Or claim science believed mars was void of water.

I must say I am so impressed to finally meet The Source Of Truth, right here on the internet.


Straw man. And a lame one at that.
I am A source for facts. I make no claim of truth.
If I've offended your sensibilities, why don't you provide a piece of evidence that you consider me to have called bogus that you believe is not.
I mean, it's a cinch frenchfries ain't gonna do it.

Ultimately it boils down to "we agree to disagree".

That is, you think AA theory is invalid, I think it's valid.

Based on what science? Based on what verifiable evidence?

How about just putting forth one absolutely positively no crap ancient alien proof of visitation?

With which you very elegantly missed the point, to think invisible ships are responsible for the course of the sun is a very weird mindset from at least my modern perspective.

No problem for you to live in a world like that? To imagine what it's like if this stuff is your reality?
But aah is... hm.

What to do with the Ancient Aliens ?


You take some orange juice and same brandy marinade them for 24h (remember , their ancient !).
Next , you roast then on a low fire until they're almost crisp.
Lastly , stick them on a stick , put same fried inions on them , and you're done !

Of course it's not congruent with most modern mindsets. It's an ancient mindset.
But that doesn't make people then different from people now. We have people today believing weirder stuff than that. They're still "us."

Sure, I'd have a problem with it. But I'd still be me and I'd remain like I am.

My point is that people are no different today than they were then. Obviously, the knowledge base is larger now, but that doesn't keep people from being people.
