How long have we really been on this planet? Or how many times?

There is no doubt in my mind that whether or not the dating is wrong,


Carbon dating works on organic matter decay and is only accurate for 30,000 years and can be stretched to 50,000 with approximate results

You need radioactive decay of other elements in rock to go further back

That starlost ship is huge. But something like it would make a great insurance policy

I always wondered if Silent running ripped them off after finding out what was coming, or did the Starlost folks just copy Silent Running.

I can't even remember which came out first, their releases must have only been short while apart.

Regardless, I was glad when I saw Battlestar Galactica rip them both off.

I don't like to speculate, but sometimes it is fun. This thread seems to be developing with two distinct ideas.

One is the idea that we have possibly been here more than once, dating a long time back.

The second is the modern proof that we haven't.

What about the possibility that the past inhabitants were not humans? Maybe they weren't originally from Earth at all. I don't know much about this possibility, but the lack of human physical advancement dating to some of the older times seems to point that us, as we know "Us", wasn't there.

Could it be possible that a highly advanced race visited this planet without the need for some of the things that would leave tell-tell reminders of there evolution into technological life? This could tie in great with some of Sitchin's theories of the Annunaki.

I can postulate to agree...
Well, if I'm not mistaken, Sitchin claims they were reptilian in nature, or at least the sumerian relics he translates state they were through pictures.

Could a previous race of ready intellects have been reptilian, even dinosaurs!
and could they have been satisfied with what they had accomplished socially, to the extent that basic requirements were all they needed? Water, food, health, housing...

Honestly one of the further reaches my imagination has taken. Yet there is SO much uncertainty in this reality certain definitions are indefinite

I would be very interested to hear speculation about specifics, on the alleged unearthing of the 150ft plus long wall in Oklahoma primarily.
This interests me greatly and although this may be impossible to research if the mine was instantly decommissioned and presumably filled in i would think there must have been stories, even if only locally, about what was down there.
Where would i begin to look for the exact site of that mine?

I may be naive but when objects are discovered such as the silver barrel mentioned in the original link, where would they be held?

The image comes to mind of the holding room/warehouse in the X Files where everything was seemingly stored.
Is this my imagination getting a bit carried away? Surely if somewhere like that existed then there would be people, possibly members of ATS who would have heard of it, maybe even seen it and its contents?

I am sure most of the good questionable finds are hidden in some underground facility. I have always wondered what it would be like to have a night in there with a crowbar.


There is a TV show commercial I saw recently that I believe is made after this idea.

The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa featured a display. Dinoman, by Dale Russell, a possible result of neoteny in the dinosaur on the right, a Stenonychosaurus.

That is eye opening as far as i am concerned, Zorgon!
Naive though it may sound, when i have heard the word"Reptilian" before i have always thought of the old TV series, "V". This has given me new perspective on the possibility of what could be out there.

Was this a semi serious attempt by the museum to hint at the possibility of what an alien life form would look like or was it "just for show"?

I can imagine the ridicule they would have faced if they went "all out serious" on this subject.
