i hope ther is not already a topic like this one. is it possible that our ancient gods like the Mayans', Greek's, and etc's are actually aliens. there is that one tale in that one Hindu book that tells the story of great flying ships battaling. the sumerans also claim to be desended from aliens. the mayans said they werw also from another planet as well. wat do ya'll think.

I have yet to see Stargate myself, but I have read many religious texts, and it is hard to dispute the similarities between what an alien would appear as, and God. From the sky, wheels of fire, plumed serpents, thunderbirds, vemanas, half-breed earthling offspring, etc.
Stargate likely hired writers who also read those tomes.

the question not if they are gods because it is a fact they are the gods we are so proudly sometimes preying to and I only like stargate as much as I do because it did suport the theory I had allong time before stargate was released.

but it is the way of the mayor religions to let us stay ignorant about us. and the great egyptian scientist which denounces the claimse of the sphinx being older than 10.000 years ect and that the gods of the middle east where aliens. they know but they don't want us to know(maybe yet mabye never).

the facts that they are aliens are in the bible and the koran ect.

This idea seems to be doing the rounds quie a bit recently. When you look at the evidence to support the matter it is actually very convincing.

Take the Greeks for example they believed in many gods, they were polytheistic. Its impossible to say how many gods they worshiped, because different Greeks worshipped different "gods". Certainly there were dozens. Obviously the ones we all consider as the most famous were the likes of Aphrodite or Apollo (and of course zeus)

As for the notion that these were actually aliens as such, is doubtful! (why would they be so involved in a society 3000 years ago and then just leave, why not have us worship them as gods today!?)

So possibly the beings which the Greeks or the Egyptians or Myans worshipped as gods were in fact just people who had extraordinary abilities, for example, Apollo; god of war, could he simply have been an incredible fighter who was so deadly and skilled that he never recieved a blow, unlikely? Yes.....but not impossible, and so was hailed as a hero and then as time went on became this legend and then of course an "immortal being" (like chinese whispers)

I'm not sure if that was what you were getting at when you first started this thread, but i hope its relevant

Ive seen this topic discussed many times on ATS,personally i think the gods were aliens 100% ,i dont find the need to post this sort of topic because all it will do is drive you crazy(trust me),of course you will find some ppl who believe you(like me) and some who dont,thats why its best just to keep your opinion to yourself,there is no concrete proof,only speculation...why dont you explain to me what your trying to accomplish by asking this question"could ancient gods be aliens?"...this is a good topic,but it has been done over and over again

I also think that the acient gods were really a highly inteligent life for from another planet. I was raised as a catholic, was always good in schience class and one day i got thinking: If god created humans, who is it that created god. I was in catholic classes at the time and decided to ask my teacher there, her explanation was that god was never created. I asked how this could be and she said god has just always been. That got me thinking even more, i knew nothing just appeard out of thin air, and i stuck with the theroy of evolution. Now that i am older (18) i realize that there is more to this than we think. I believe that the aliens (god) came to earth, and taught the ancient humans over many years. The gods depicted in many of the statues and painting usually have human characteristics, whats wrong with thinking that we are just stray aliens that got left behind, or that decided to wtay here on earth like the pilgrims decided to stay in the USA. Who knows maybee our alien ancestors fought for freedom from the "home planet" just like the american ancestors?

Just my 2 cents

Instead of attacking the person for expressing an honest question, perhaps it's better to be a little more researched on the subject matter.

Quacks like Erich von Däniken aside, this subject has been kicked around for decades with no real gain one way or the other...but it has certainly been the subject of some fantastic literature.

And FYI: Stargate took it's rough concept from some of the aspects of Project Star Gate - a real government project.

No doubt in my mind they were, I have been studying this for 12 years. But they were not really aliens, they were pretty much like us. I could get into more detail but I wont here because it will bring up too many arguments and people will get offended. Lots of sensitive people here. PM I mean, U2U me and I can give you my opinions on this. I would suggest reading the gods of eden, Stitchens books, Ickes books & a few others, even the montauk project. There is one common theme amongst all of them. It becomes pretty obvious when you look at kings through history, Hammurabi, Alexander the great, Ceaser, etc. BTW I dont think it was reptiles, either.

Me too, one day in catholic school ( about 1st grade ) I was reading the bible. I asked a nun, how come people could speak to god back then but not now. She grabbed a priest, he told me he speaks to god all the time & I said, but yeah do you see him? Does he speak back? He gave me the whole prair speach & I was really upset with the BS, even at an early age. I do believe in some higher being ( spirit, consciences ) that we are all a part of, but as far as who upgraded/enginered humans, I feel was someone else pretending to be god/s.

The aliens start off as souls,just like we do,they incarnated in a body,they evolved in that body for long periods of time,becoming more intelligent,until they eventaully reached the levels they are at now...i am sure this took them countless incarnations,until they finally mastered there abilities.it could have taken them thousands of years to get were they are now...they developed space travel and the rest is history...the only reason why we are at the level we are,is because aliens helped us...they taught us all the things we needed to become like them,these aliens were called fallen angels,and they fell in space ships?...take alook at this link

Emporer Xanu brainwashed the alien ghosts into thinking that other gods existed, thereby denying them the chance to reach the enlightened state.

!!Read your history books people!!

I don't think they came from some other world. I know that over time the fish in the story to get to be bigger each time it is told.
I kind of put my foot in mouth with this one but God is not man or woman.
Were is God from?? I know there is a lot of people that say God is not real,
but I know otherwise. Something is at foot and time will tell......... or will it

edit for some spelling.

Well, at least there are some fact that, in my opinion, support this theory, for instance:
- the arts were born 30.000 years simultaneously all around the world.
- the religion are very similar (they have the same base), also in any part of the world...
- how the hell, the inhabitant of the easter island made to arrive in a place 5000km from any piece of earth??? Moreover it seems that their writing characters are nearly the same of some place in India...
- ...

there are so many arguments, that it would put only confusion to write all here...

Wrong.

The oldest we have found is between 32,000 and 36,500 years old [Europe]

Others come around at different times and are a different style, for example Africa's oldest is dated around 28,000 to 31,000.

To argue that aliens existed and helped guide us, there needs to be a level of similarity between all of the facts that do not come down to just coincidence. Such as what they are dwaring - clearly what they hunt in the early days.

The fact language, building styles, and so many other factors are all different point to the fact society evolved differently depending on region and adapted to the surroundings.

The reason that we can not say that aliens influenced earliest human cultures is because we can not imagine a means of travelling at the speeds necessary to traverse light years of space. The conceptual leaps involved are enormous. While my earlier post on this thread was intended as a joke the point is actually serious. How does adding aliens into the mysteries of human existence do anything but add unnecessary complications?

The ancient astronaut theory is interesting, it has a lot of romantic charm, but it seems to be a modern incident of misreading the poetic, allegorical intent of world mythological systems. Why do all these various systems say that wise, benevolent, governing entities came down to Earth from the sky? Because this is how they described the planets and the stars, and these celestial objects were fundamentally important in the conception of time and space.

I forgot to write "around"

Consider the scale of the evolution of the life on the planet... you'll agree that a few thousand year is very low, considering that the hole planet is involved, no?

Consider the styles of the current and past artists: is it identical, or even similar? I mean I'm not saying that aliens took some us to a school of art... it's the same for the construction of the pyramids around the globe: they different, but the base of the tecnique is the same. At least, this is what the expert are saying... the opinion are changing with the time, not the facts...

The language is continuously evolving... even today, think about the new "model" of expression showed in the SMS: if you give a message written by teenagers to anyone 20 years ago, I'm sure he would tell that this is not english(or whatever)

In my own experience(I live in Italy since 4 years ago), when I go back to Belgium (this little country beside France
) I discover so many new expressions that sometime I feel lost in the conversations...
