I am amazed as well with humanities progress in such a short time. But lets not give all the credit to some suposed aliens. The Humans did a lot themselves as well.

There was in Europe and Nth America a critical mass of well educated and resorceful people. In past societies education was only for the elite, however in this one it is for everyone. So the number of scientists, thinkers, and producers is far in excess of the past.

Add this to a capitalistic society where innovation equals money, then you have a fire of new developments.

Look at the stagnating Arab world to see how it might have been, or the copying Asian world, in both cases their Social structure holds them back.

The west just got its act together, and the umberalla of the British Empire with its colonies provided the educational and sociological fertilizer to make it happen.

We didn't need aliens, we are a creative, productive, innovative society.

Yet we still can't build anything like the pyramids like they did.

Since when can't we build the pyramids RANT?

Alot of new things have been discovered in the 20th Century which started the industrial revolution and gave us the ability to create new things.

Ofcourse we can build pyramids. With enough money and manpower it's certainly possible. We did much larger and more complicated projects. We even made a pyramid of glass. Why shouldn't we be able to make a pyramid?

i believe rant is referring to an experiment, i think it was way back. some group of genius architects attempted to build like a 1/10(estimate) scale replica, and failed. sorry i have no links. anyone?

Hey this is my firstpost but ive been a long time reader,
I think ur are all over looking one important point,the harnsing of the power of electricty...think about that before u jump back to 16th-18th cent. ect.
But i do support theorys about ancient civilisation having advanced tech.

not that i think we didn't reverse engineer any of the amazing technological advances over the last century or so, but there is another logical explanation. it's called the snoball effect. in order to bring forth new technologies, we require the use of current technologies(the more technology, the faster we can develop new ones). the more advanced we get, the more easily and faster we can advance.

but its obvious that this doesn't explain all of our technology. there are definately other forces at work. or maybe (seeing how we know that our government has concealed knowledge and technology from us before and are probably doing so even now) the governments of the world have had most of this knowledge and technology for hundreds of years and just waited until the 1900's to reveal it.

And as well all know everything that was invented after Roswell came from the USA...
...you got it? Good. Because I just proofed that your theory is either wrong in it's scale or in full aspect.

that has to be one of the most ignorant things iv'e ever heard! everything that has been invented since roswell came from the US? only a moron would try to pass that off as truth

December 1947 was when the transistor was revealed. In july of that year Roswell happened. I'd say its quite possible the crash near Roswell greatly advanced our technology, or perhaps some other crash we are unaware of.


That is not a very good example I doubt that a ship traveling faster than light would use transistors.

I think its just a matter of science accumalating faster and faster, the more you know the easier it is to learn if you know what I mean.

I thank getting religion off our backs helped a lot also, you are not likely to annouce your discovery if it will get you burned at the stake

You didn't get my posting. That's all.

The author claimed that after Roswell the world made an unnormal boost in its technological process which is a clear sign for extra-terrestrial help. This would only be a logical explaination if everything invented after Roswell would come from the USA.
His theory complete ignores every other nation than the US or better: His theory is only valid if there is no other nation than the US.(arrogance at its best)

So check for sarcasm before you call me a moron...

not necessarily.just because this e.t. help assisted in the invention of amazing new technology doesn't mean all technology invented after we recieved this help was a direct result of that help. if you are right, then how did people invent new things before we recieved this e.t. help?

i think you don't get your post.

Omg it wasn't about inventing in general it was all about a rapid progress in invention in the 20th century and he draw a direct connection that this rapid boost could just be the result of extra-terrestrial help. He wasn't talking about one specific thing but talked about several examples. Don't try to find mistakes in my posts where there are no.
Btw. you still didn't excuse for calling me a moron with false assumptions.

there's no need to find errors in a post that so clearly puts them out there so that they can't be missed. and the assumptions that led to my calling you a moron were for not false. one thing, i never implied that he was referring to one specific thing.

this would only mean that every invention that surpassed our technology would have been invented by the US, inventions would continue to be invented in other parts of the world.

Hmm.. that is an interesting theory, that most or our recent developments are coming for alien technology that we have gained from such things as teh Roswell Crash. That makes sense, and i can see how that is possible. It is very possible, and it is something that the government would do. They would take what is not theirs and then they would somehow introduce it to the public and claim it as their own. Hmm.. I don't know if it is true or not, or if all of our advancements in the last fifty years or so are do to alien technology that we have discovered.

On another thought look at the technologies of other civilizations like that of the Egyptions and the Mayans, the Chiniese and many others. Things that we have been unable to reproduce in all of our splendor. It brings up the question of whether or not, they were helped to by some greater race of beings.

I think that this is the most probable of all the theories, that through small subtle interferences (spelling?) by aliens throughout all of our recorded history we have been helped by aliens. They, forming us and our technology. Yeah that i think is the most probable. Even if they are just implementing ideas into out minds, i think that they have interfered with us.

The invention of the transistor...

www.pbs.org...

Rather than trying to prove a negative, that alien technology DIDN'T yield our technology, how about some evidence that it did.

Being a Scientist and Inventor, I find it silly to claim any human made technology had anything to do with ET sources.

In all my years of learning invention and its history i have never once came across technology that seemed to have come out of no where. Yes, some time things came out of accidents, but all the basis for those invention was already there.

I think claiming any piece of human technology was back engineered from ET technology is unfounded. Can some one post an example of technology that has no firm basis in HUMAN history? Please check into it before you just post something, odds are google alone can illistrate my point.

I don't see what is so odd about the suggestion that humans have reverse engineered alien technology. I mean, if you are somebody who accepts the idea that what happened in 1947 in New Mexico was an alien ship crash, then one of the most logical things humans could do would be to reverse engineer the captured debris for our own use.
