I've read a dozen posts, watched the history channel shows, even bought into some of them for a bit...
But here's the big problem:
Nobody ever finds any evidence of anything saying in plain words: "Being got out of a craft and showed us stuff, then left"
This is what I've seen as the excuse we have no real "evidence" other than conjecture and speculation:
- We don't understand their languages so we have to read between the lines
Really? So we understand enough of the ancient languages to figure out how they fed their animals, irrigated their farms, raised their kids, and
governed their people... but this one little bit is just too hard to glean?
- They didn't have a comprehensive understanding of science like we do today so they called them "gods"
They didn't understand science like we do... never mind the complex and insanely accurate astronomic observatories - these cats new the earth was
round and we revolved around the sun WAY before the Catholic Church was burning people for such accusations. Never mind that these guys figured out
metallurgy and brain surgery - talk about some seriously advanced stuff. Nope, they were just poor dumb clucks that were making the best out of what
they saw... it never occurred to them to ask a question like "where ya'll from?" or "how'd you get here?"
- There is no way they could have built these things with the tools of the time
We point to a couple of things and say "no way they did that with the tools they had" but we forget that there are some distinct possibilities here
that are overlooked: 1.) We don't know all the tools and methods they had... we only know the most primitive tools that have lasted through the
years. You think a laser drill would last a couple thousand years in the ground? 2.) Believe it or not - we don't know everything about everything.
There may actually be techniques and technologies that have long since been forgotten and never relearned.
The ancient alien theory rests on some pretty far reaching assertions that are completely overlooked when evaluating the "evidence" as well:
- the AA's where so advanced they were able to come here and develop entire societies in their image... but not advanced enough for themselves or
what they built to last?
- the AA's were thought of as gods instead of aliens... but all the images of "gods" are either people or different animals.... so being around the
AA's is like going the NY zoo? Just all kinds of different fun stuff happening and lucky for us it's all like creatures found on earth? Wow...
- the AA's where able to come to earth, show people how to build things - for whatever reason - dwell here for an indefinite amount of time - then
mysteriously vanish... but we've got NOTHING from them? Just some stones that "couldn't" be cut by tools of the times and some little figures that
look "a whole lot" like space suits?
- WTF are AA's doing wearing space suits? Enviro suits or breathing apparatus - sure... space suits? News Flash: Earth is NOT space... not a
vacuum, and thus no need for the space suit. And what's up with the figures that are "not" in space suits? Could horse looking AA's live outside of
suits but the "snake" ones couldn't? What about the "bull" AA's? Or the "Greys"..... and why no humans in space suits? They'll show us how to build
temples but not ships or other vehicles and things of actual "use"? *yawn
Occam's razor people - the simplest solution is usually the correct one:
We dont know what the hell was going on back then, and it bugs the crap out of our "smart" people that these bumbling cave men may have figured out
how to do stuff we still can't do today.
I mean seriously... we'll put our trust in the hand size figure made of stone as "proof" but not demand that someone show me a chunk of space ship?
An actual piece of space faring vessel?
... this whole theory just sounds cool - but it's got no legs... very "paper tiger" if you will.
I do believe there are things in earth's ancient past (and more specifically humanities ancient past) that we simply don't know about. Histories have
been lost, sciences have been forgotten, and civilizations have ceased to exist. But something on this scale to only be left behind by the minutia of
evidence defies any kind of serious scientific approach.
