Are TPTB giving the Ancient Aliens believers enough rope to hang themselves?

I guess I want to beleive, but, I have been guilty of reading so much I am not sure what to believe anymore, maybe that is your point, that is what TPTB want....I guess.......


Finally, someone understands what I'm trying to say. That is the crux, the very point of the question. Do TPTB sit on the sidelines, and encourage us to feel and "think" exactly as you stated?

You must filter out what you do not agree with and use your own brain to decide what you may believe to be plausible.
The show makes you think, and people like that, I like that, but I am not gullible or stupid.
It is a valid theory.


I agree to a point. I agree, it's a valid theory. However, when everything MUST be the result of Aliens, doesn't that do a disservice to our own human race. It has the potential to indoctrinate the young to think anything truly amazing or seemingly impossible cannot be done by us (or you), that the only way something incredible can be done is with help from Aliens.

I mean, doesn't that teach that there is a limit to human ingenuity. Frankly, I think we can do whatever we set our minds to do, no matter how impossible someone (or any particular group) may think it is to do. I believe that humans designed, engineered and built the Egyptian Pyramids, because they were intelligent...and determined.

Using the logic that we could never do anything incredible ourselves, in 1000 years, the story may be that Aliens created (or helped humans create) Mount Rushmore. After all with our measly technology of air-hammers, chisels, and explosives, there's no way we humans could achieve anything on such a grand scale. When you and I know today, that yes, intelligent, talented and dedicated HUMANS created this incredible work of art and reverence for those we revere.

I fully agree, just because someone presented it in a way that it discredits itself because of the wild claims made, does not mean it couldn't have happened at least for some of the connections made.
