It's always so entertaining in seeing all these remarks coming from people who are not Anatomists, who are not accredited experienced professionals
in fields pertaining or applicable to Physical Anthropology, or even Paleopsychology making absolute statements as fact based entirely on pie-in-sky,
all gods come from the sky so they MUST be Aliens flawed reasoning backed up by absolutely zero academic support.
The reason gods always come from the sky, is because the sky, to ancient man was unreachable, unobtainable. We see this time and again in mythology
where gods always come from places like under the mountain, inside the earth, over the horizon where the sun disappears, the clouds, or mystical
alternate realities like the spirit world; always places of imagination, and always places that were unreachable to primitive man.
The grass is always greener, or at least more vividly imaginary, as well as populated with super people, always in places primitive man could never
get to, or only imagine ever going to through magical means.
Cranial deformation practices happen over disparate times in widely disparate geographically separate cultures with no real evidence of any alien
Any reasoning typically attached to this line of saucer eyed belief is preposterous and often laughable.
Aliens travel across dimensions, and/or space time just to wave at some mud covered primitives so they can practice cranial deformation?
They imparted wisdom?
Why is none of this spectacular wisdom in any evidence?
I'm no alien, but, if I wanted to impart wisdom, I'd start by training the primitive peoples in a language capable of articulating, recording, and
conveying abstract concepts and highly technical data. That language would include a complete system of mathematical notation, and I'm talking about
Maths that have nothing to do with mere numbers.
Do we see any of this?
We see entirely predictable advancements and discoveries in human culture made at levels and times appropriate a culture's level of sophistication.
We see evolution of language, and evolution of a growing understanding of primitive man's perception on how the universe works.
We can find fossilized dinosaur footprints, and even fossilized ghosts of feathers of dinosaurs imprinted in rock over 65 MILLION years old, but, we
can't find not even one single Aztec wrist watch?
No Mayan radios? ... and these civs are less than 4000 years old!
If aliens were imparting 'wisdom', what 'wisdom' was that that was so special it required aliens, that was so special that it's indistinguishable
from what's entirely expected of that level of primitive society, such it's entirely and completely attributable it was figured out on its own
without any outside help?
If aliens showed up to play Shopping Mall Santa to primitive man, show us the data.
