The History channel ran a show last night (probably not the first time it's run) on evidence of alien visitation in history... going back as far as
3500 years ago. What's compelling about the various stories and evidence they show is that many people drew similar depictions of aliens and their
craft while having no knowledge that other, similar drawings or accounts existed.
Unlike today's internet-sped exchange of information where it's hard to put credibility into "me-too" reports that may just be copy-cat
exhortations of known stories, the ancient reports have a tremendous amount of credibility. So many independent and isolated sources telling similar
stories has to say more than "oh, there were kooks back then, too..."
If those people were fabricating their stories, why did the aliens all look so similar to the depictions others made at various points in history?
If they were only seeking attention, why were their accounts told only in journals that they did not share with others?
How do you debunk millenia-old witnesses whose stories were corroborated by historians with whom they never had contact and told similar stories
hundreds of years before and and after them in geographical locations where no knowledge had passed between sources?
More interestingly, why is it that back in the 1970's and earlier, UFO sightings accounted more brazen, open visitation by alleged alien visitors...
nowadays, a mere glimpse of a strange light is as close to a close encounter as we hear of. Could our technology be presenting a hindrance to
possible extraterrestrial visitation?
