Ignorance is reading the first few words of a post, and calling the poster 'ignorant'. It's replies like yours that keep humanity dumbed-down...

'Oh, your post is ignorant, because I don't feel like reading today...'

Pfft.

I hope you don't have an important job that requires reading.

Boooooo!

...that's correct...I was clear about the fact that this is my opinion; I didn't make anyone think it was a fact, and I damned sure didn't call anyone 'ignorant' about a clearly stated opinion...

...there's something wrong in being straight-forward?

For the good of humanity? Take a step back. Its just a show. Look at what it takes to make a samurai sword. Its unbelievable simple humans could make such a perfect piece of metal. But no, it must have been alien tech. Ok so it IS a possibility. But it is possible that the world is a cube too, we just not seeing it thru biased brainwashed eyes..

It's hard to see people discussing Georgio Tsoukalos' hair, while in every single show there's a couple of PhD engineers, experts in mechanics and architecture presenting workshops to prove that hi-tech technology and machinery were used to build megalithic buildings like Giza, Abu Simbel, Luxor, Angkor Wat, Tiahuanaco, Teotihuacán, just to name a few.

I think the show provides some valuable data mixed with deep thought out guesses to share as much that can be shared. Always liked it from the beginning of the series.

lulz ^^

love the show because they present a lot of good facts but also a lot of BS...

-> "Do your research!"

but from season to season the rethoric get worse...worst sentence ever

"...so it MUST BE ancient astronauts"...

anyway...the ancient astronaut THEORY is much better for me than evolution THEORY...but i learnd by this show that a lot of people 1. cannot filter information ad-hoc 2. get blinded by bad rethoric and 3. must people have huge problems with basic philosophy of science/ epistemology...

It's a good thing Columbus didn't think this way.

I enjoy the show. Mostly for the mysteries, and unique places they present throughout the series. I do not necessarily believe in the proposition they propose.

The main problem i have with the show is how logic and rationale is presented.

There are essentially two ways in which conclusions can be drawn. Top-down & Bottom-Up.

Bottom-up processing is essentially taking what you know, developing that knowledge, building upon, thus expanding a general understanding about any given topic. This is the only way of achieving any real objective truth. This is the method that science uses. Using this method, only principles which adhere to the laws governing the universe and concepts which utilize logical, rational, and objective thinking can be true.

Top-down processing is essentially taking a topic, and making an assertion or assumption, and then, finding whatever evidence (if any) one can to support his or her assumption. This is not a pathway to truth. This is the method that religion uses. This is also the method that Ancient Astronaut Theory uses. Using this method of thinking, anything can be made true.

I have watched through the entire series. I am up to date on the current episode about the plagues. I enjoy the show. In saying that, most of the time, the conclusions made are gigantic leaps with little to no evidence to support them. However... there is the occasional incident, where one can only step back, and wonder in bewilderment, how something was accomplished. One topic that immediately comes to mind, is the construction of ancient megalithic sites: The Pyramids, Baalbec, Gobekli Tepe, Sardinia, among others. Another, is the intricacy of some crop circles found around the world.

Anyways, entertaining show, but always be skeptical. Use your own critical thinking and logic. Ultimately, this show has left me with more questions then answers.

What you call an "open-minded discourse on man's past" I call plain sloppy thinking. Baseless speculation, complete disregard for evidence, adherence to long-discredited misinformation...

For instance, I watched a couple episodes and in both, the hair guy repeated a couple "facts" which are plain and simply false.


In one, he claimed that all historical peoples thought the world was flat. This is not true. We've known the world was round ever since the Greeks. Columbus's contemporaries also knew the world was round.

In another, he reports the "fact" that one of the only man-made structures you can see from space is the great wall of China. This too, is plainly false.


What this tells me is that the hair guy must not be researching any of the claims he is making. Two seconds on a google search would have disproved either of these statements. If he gets such basic facts wrong, how can we believe him when it comes the more outlandish claims?

Hello,

it is my first post here on ATS, and excuse me in advance for my not-so-bad english.

I also like that show and it makes me think a lot. One thing i often say to my self is "even if the theory is completely false, it's at least a theory that will make people think a bit out of the box, something that will maybe start the 'critical thinking engine' in some people's brain".

I am also often disappointed when in the show they completely dismiss the "ancient advanced human civilisation" theory, and jump too quickly to the AAT.

One question i would like to ask here :
they often say something like "if they used stone to build all those ancient cities and monuments, it's because they wanted to leave a message to future generations". I am not sure i understand why they would want to leave any message to future generations. Did they really used something like diorite because they knew it would stand for thousands of years and because they wanted to leave a message?

Also, i would like to add that while season 1 and 2 of the show were good, that third season is a bit boring in my opinion.

Educate?? You got to be kidding me!
This is show uses religious texts as proof and yet you call that education??

They have shown absolutely no evidence for aliens contacting ancient civilizations.

I think that's why they call it a theory.

ok, yes ancient aliens pander to the type of people they know are watching, afterall they are working for a network, who want good ratings. but when you look some of the stuff on this show you will see that they are asking some valid questions.

i agree that some of the people on the show speek as though these things were done by ETs and thats probably because they beleive it themselves but the thing this show is telling us is that it is a possability, and i agree that it is a possability

...but he's the funniest (ie: entertaining) part!



I know, right?... that guy should just start a televised book reading program.

for some reason i want this guy to explain really complicated things to me.
perhaps that is the convincing power of looking insane.



I feel the same way ahaha. If nothing else he makes it worth watching. In all seriousness I enjoy watching AA and also believe almost everything they present is plausible, not everything but just about.

I can't understand all the bashing and anger that goes on over this. If you don't agree with AA just watch it for entertainment or don't watch it at all. Just like one mans trash is another mans treasure, I feel that one mans beliefs are another mans entertainment. AA isn't for everyone but why bash it, it only makes a bigger flame war upon each other. Like I said I for one like the show, some things might be a touch outlandish but but what theory/religion doesn't have that?
