Originally posted by SkyfloatingMy reason for pursuing the ancient astronaut theory were encounters with a few high ranking university
people and egyptologists that were scared to death of speaking out. Of course I wont tell their names on some anonymous internet forum, I will protect
them. But those encounters are what originally motivated me to look into it all. There´s your REASON.

Really? Well, I am in daily contact with various alien life forms here on Earth and they tell me they've been watching us for millions of
years and no extraterrestrial has ever made contact with anyone or anything here until they contacted me.
Of course, I have to protect them so I can't tell you their names!
So, there's your REASON!

Some at ATS provide documentation, research and sincere inquiry, some provide scoffing and ridicule. I doubt if the latter leads to learning anything
And some can't take it when somebody else (besides themselves) makes some baseless claim that cannot be checked because they are too lazy to do the
research that is necessary for them to be able to provide evidence that might support their point of view.
If you run a search here at ATS for my posts, I'm sure you will see that I have provided more documentation and have evinced far more "sincere"
inquiry, at least as regards my posts in this forum, than you or (probably) any other poster in this thread!
However, my response to your crapola about "people you know" is the response you deserved. If you can't back it up, why are you saying it?

I feel sorry for people like you i honestly do. Trapped inside a prison that has either been created by yourself, religion, or the disposable society
we live in. It doesn't really matter how really.
I'll forgive you for that now, because you probably haven't read much of my stuff here - there's a lot of it and I've been absent lately.
I won't forgive it again if you pull this sort of personal attack out on me again.
Originally posted by metaldemon2000I question everything in this world because nothing makes 100% sense. It probably never will. See the
thing is the world is alot more complicated than people think, and trying to find one certified conclusion on things is nonsense.
I'm glad you question everything. Now if you would just make some slight effort to find answers you might see where I'm coming from.
Originally posted by metaldemon2000And you expect we should believe that everything we know, our entire history is absolute?
Straw man. You do
know what I mean by that don't you?
Originally posted by metaldemon2000You have to ask yourself why was science considered a crime during the dark ages? Because religious
leaders feared it would expose them.
Moreover, I also must ask myself why science is "considered a crime" by posters (such as yourself) here at ATS.
Originally posted by metaldemon2000 So i ask you this, why can't we access anything about our society that is older than 6000 years
even though there we complex written languages and methods of keeping records and sophistacted societies.
Because there were not "complex written languages?"
Who is preventing you from "accessing" something about some ancient society? Nobody. You are only limited by your own desire, or lack thereof.
Originally posted by metaldemon2000One would also assume that if egyptians could use and understand the math involved with building the
pyramids and having knowledge of some pretty slick engineering, it would have kept records of the hundreds if not thousands of years it took to aquire
that information as it did for us.
Are you not aware that we do
already know that the Egyptians in fact possessed all the math they needed to build the pyramids?
As a teacher of mathematics, I could enlighten you if only you could open your mind to the possibilities of human capabilities.

And if you want to comment on how unscientific i sound go ahead, im a tradesman not a scientist.
Thanks for your permission, but I don't look down on tradesmen, just on people that refuse to have the "open mind" that they claim to have.
