My thread "Ancient Astronauts Discussion", which had more than 137 replies in two days, has been trashed because I copy pasted some of my material
from another thread into it. Sorry to all the participants of that thread.
I recently had a debate on ancient astronauts in which I provided a lot of evidence for the theory. You can find that thread here:
I would like to provide this thread to discuss and expand on the evidence already provided and also to present more evidence. Any "results of
research" I discover will be put into this thread. Some of it will be original research and writing done by me. It is alright to expose the research
to scrutiny and rebuttal on this Forum as it will show us what ancient-astronaut points are strong and which ones are weak. I look forward to
collaborators posting their insights here too.
The Sky and the Heavens
Falsifying history is supported by manipulating language. A good example of this is how the word "sky" has been changed to mean some mythical place
I first became aware of this oddity when learning foreign languages. I remember asking various language teachers "Uh...wait a minute. Sky and Heaven
are the same word? They are not in English!"
Why is this so important? Well, by just a little tweaking of the meaning of "heaven" to mean some other dimension or a place in the afterlife you
can establish religion. And you can "scientifically" discount a bunch of ancient accounts from South America to Europe, from Africa to Australia,
from Asia to ancient Egypt, from Russia to North America that talk about a bunch of "Gods", people and beings flying around in the sky, coming down
from the sky, flying up into the sky. Orthodox history can then say "Well, they weren`t talking about space or the sky at all. They had no idea what
the sky or space is. They were talking religiously. They were talking about some mythical place".
Don`t get me wrong...I am not discounting the existence of an afterlife or other realms. But the word "heaven", which has been seperated from
"sky" in the English language is even used interchangably (as in the heavenS) in the Bible and originally refers to the sky and space.
What strikes me the most is how little attention and comment this case of manipulation has received.
I look forward to discussing the topics of that other thread and new topics brought up. Much more to come.
