You are probably correct. I just copy and pasted the title of the article as I was in a bit of hurry at the time. Its hard to provide real proof for anything... Let alone alien contact.
In my mind's eye I picture a Gallic visitor to the Dogon people, in what was then French West Africa, in the early part of (19th) century. He may have been a diplomat, explorer, an adventurer or an early anthropologist.

Well I was just about to bring up that one
This one here...
Looks like a direct take off from this one;
But there you have a REAL example of a Mayan work that may point to Ancient Aliens

In 1844 the German astronomer F.W. Bessel discovered that the long term motion of Sirius itself (A) was not straight but, rather, wavy against the background of more distant stars. Bessel proposed that there was a DARK companion to Sirius whose gravitational influence was producing the observed sinusoidal motion.

If galactic visiters DID indeed land on earth, and visit the mayan civilisation, not too take anything away from the human intellect...but wouldnt it take a long while to try and get a human, from that period of time in history, to understand such complicated astronomy???
That requires or involves principles such as, dynamic modelling/mathematics/dimensioning/physics at a fairly intermediate/high level of knowledge even for an average mature person today...( i know there are kid genious's out there)
..you would need to cover a lot of groundwork on fundamentals PURE BASICS, i mean how did they overcome the language barrier, or train of thought? everyone has a different way of explaining things, methods of deduction and analytical approach to things that only a comprehensive education can provide you with.
we see how peoples and groups/tribes whatever vary GREATLY across the globe, you cant just integrate into a tribe in the heart of the amazonian jungle due to customs/traditions/principles/ideals, you would NOT just run in there and explain to them what a core i7 intel processor does and why they should save up and buy one? not being a smart ass, but what i am IMPLYING is that imagine how galact travellers would be so much different to us!!!!
Realistically, were not taking these things into account at all, and jumping the gun A LOT, imagine star trek and the universal translator, you think they had one of those? even if aliens were telepathic, does telepathy have dialects and languages? how the hell would we know.
I think what i mentioned serves as solid framework for this type of thread and discussion, yes those artifacts are interesting, i dont believe in aliens, but they caught my attention and triggered the questions i stated.edit on 14-3-2012 by ISeekTruth101 because: (no reason given)edit on 14-3-2012 by ISeekTruth101 because: (no reason given)

Even early 19th century astronomers could not accurately know of Sirius B, and especially not it's actual orbit. IT'S A DARK STAR. It's orbit was discovered in 1950 I believe and CONFIRMS the Dogon's knowledge.
C'mon man. Some things cannot be explained. I know it's hard to accept....but the truth sometimes is.edit on 14-3-2012 by LightAssassin because: (no reason given)

Just thought I would share this as I have not seen these artifacts before. I remember a thread not long ago talking about some Mayan stuff that would be released and I wondered if this was it..
Amazing new Mayan artifacts prove the extraterrestrial connection between the Maya and their galactic visitors, furthering the preponderance on the December 21, 2012 end date to the Long Count calendar.
Many people have speculated that the Maya were visited by extraterrestrials and that at least one of their deities, Kukulcan (also known as Quetzalcoatl by the Aztecs), may have been a galactic visitor who taught the Maya about agriculture, mathematics, medicine and astronomy. How else could one explain the Mayan calendar, a calendar that to this day can accurately predict every lunar eclipse within 30 seconds?
Some of these do look like your typical alien heads.. With the big instect type eyes. Not that I have ever seen an alien.
and this looks very much like it could be a spacecraft..
I think this is the most intresting image. It looks to me like a some kind of machine and depicts planets around it too....!
Theres plenty more images on the site and some youtube videos. I cannot comment on them as my internet connection will not allow me to watch them.
So if anyone wants to write some spec about them it would be nice...

And for all those reasons - we're all going Nuts - we can no longer believe ANYTHING! That is scary - I mean how do we know when the truth stares us in the face? This is the problem with the world today.
