I really don't believe anything about this THEORY of aliens building Puma Punku and having such an influence on the ancients. I mean, especially if
you consider what OUR approach towards another civilization would be if we were capable of interplanetary travel.
Thats not to argue that there are definitely several theories out there. But I would have to say the most plausible one would be: If we found a
distant intelligent civilization we would most likely avoid as much contact as possible to minimize our overall influence on the inferior
civilization. Furthermore, we would most likely just be there to study and observe the culture, much less build their civilizations for them. Just
think about it, what really is the most plausible theory?
Thats not to say I don't want to believe, however simpler and more believable solutions do exist. And if one considers the theory of Occam's Razor,
I feel that the alien story is a little far fetched at times.
Especially when the History Channel airs an episode on ancient Civilizations supposedly being influenced by ancient aliens. Then they go further and
back a lot of their arguments based on Erich Von Daniken's theories and ideas!
For those of you that don't know Daniken, a swiss author of Chariots of The Gods
and avid ET supporter. He has made several claims over the
years regarding the presence of aliens and their impact they have made on our own planetary history.
However, when one looks more closely at Van Daniken you will learn that he has not only been up to his neck in legal problems... but he has also been
arrested, YES arrested, for fraud and embezzlement! Which ultimately lead him to spend several years incarcerated in Swiss prisons.
Now do the math here people, are you really going to take the word of such an unreliable source? I can tell you that I will not, but I'll let you
come to your own decision.
SOURCE Von Däniken's run-ins with the law started at an early age. In
the 1960s, Von Däniken worked in hotels and restaurants across Switzerland, and then he was convicted of fraud, serving a prison sentence for
defrauding his boss at one hotel. In 1967, soon after Chariots of the Gods was published he was arrested and charged by Interpol with fraud and tax
evasion for non-payment of $14,000.00. On behalf of the prosecution, he was ordered by the Court to undergo psychological examinations. During the
investigation, authorities uncovered a large personal debt totaling about $700,000. Von Däniken was found guilty of embezzlement, and he served more
than three years in Swiss prisons
And YES!!! These are some of the best engineered and magnificent structures from ancient times. The shear precision and perfection that was
engineered into these structures is utterly mind blowing! The exact theory as to how these megaliths were built still puzzles modern researchers and
But for people to automatically jump to the extraterrestrial conclusion, off the bat without doing their homework is absurd!!! Inform yourselves
people, give credit to the ingenuity of the human mind! Just because these were built thousands of years ago doesn't discredit the ability of the
ancients to find ways to erect such monumental structures. The human mind is the most complex 'machine' that we have ever known! The workings and
capabilities are STILL vastly unknown in this current day and age. All the recent "break-through's" in science lead me to believe the brain is
greatly unchartered territory and our true capabilities are outside the realm of our current knowledge.
Now I am no expert in this field, and I am sure there are several of you out there that know much more about this topic than myself. But the dots
just don't connect for me. Maybe somebody can come on here and prove me wrong. But without any credible evidence supporting this idea it is still
just another theory, to say the least.
