The Ancient Knowledge Theory:

My favorite explanation in science is “It just happened.” From evolution, to ancient cultures, to modern times, scientists have been using this one phrase as an excuse to not dig beyond conventional thinking and the grasp of the Catholic Church for fear of prosecution. It seems that most theories today cannot be solved because scientists refuse to look at other facts. They are scared at what the mainstream public and the church will do.

Most non-conventional authors hold Phds in several fields. However, because they write that one book about ancient aliens or alternative theories on the Sphinx they are discredited and cast out of society. It is fact that most people today refuse to find out for themselves and follow whatever the government wants them to.

What about the Ancients? As evidence piles up against the grunting cavemen, and points towards an American- like Sumerian civilization one has to wonder where the Ancients got these seemingly advanced ideas. Putting the alien god theory aside for a minute, that would mean that the human civilization is a lot older than previously thought. If the Sumerian's knew how to organize themselves into a thriving society then how were they so good at it right from the start? How come the Sumerian reigned for so long without a single mistake? As far as we know the Sumerian's mysteriously vanished without any reason. There has been no great pyramids found, no mummified remains, we just have their writings.

Did the Sumerians have the ancient knowledge that so many scientists see throughout time but are hesitant to report on it. All evidence points to the fact the this ancient knowledge was some type of database where the leaders of the ancient people were able to pick out information. Obviously the information was regulated in some way because they did not know everything. The Pharaohs, however, did know more then the cattle herders. The only explanation is that the Pharaohs were in direct contact with this ancient knowledge through some sort of computer control panel.

This theory about ancient computers is only now beginning to see the light of day. It is obvious that there were some advanced thinkers back in the day that were not regulated by the Pharaohs and the supposed “Gods”. The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient mechanical calculator (also described as the first known mechanical computer designed to calculate astronomical positions.) It was recovered in 1901 from the Antikythera wreck but its complexity and significance were not understood until decades later. It is now thought to have been built about 150–100 BC. Such Mechanical devices are not found in the world until 1000 years later.

This amazing little calculator was used for simple basic mathematics, and complex astronomical readings including the creation of the calendar, measuring solar eclipses and ship navigation. However this calculator seems like the graphic calculator of today. Wouldn't a more simpler version of the calculator had to have come first? Whoever created this machine, had to have taken knowledge possibly not belonging to them and going against society create the first computer!

The theory of ancient knowledge can be seen throughout our idols and mentors today. These people are probably famous in their fields and rose on top of all others. Now, there is not a giant computer database somewhere telling these people how to sing or throw a touchdown, but maybe the ancient knowledge was installed into the human genome once our alien god creators left us. This computer program would only initiate through certain human characteristics and events around their lives. This could be that voice inside ourselves telling us what we have to do. This ancient knowledge could very well be the human soul.

People today who seem to have this ancient knowledge include: Billionaires, all the celebrities, living presidents, certain authors, political figures, the Dali Llama (who is exiled from his own country due to his beliefs) and the pope. These people never gave up on their dreams and never doubted about their existence in the world today. Who will tomorrow's Ancient knowledge holders be? Just look at rising stars, prodigy's, and people who are experts in their fields. There is a reason the news doesn't go around filming people for doing random everyday things.

Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge.[1] To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning

Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

Your argument seems more like :

In informal logic and rhetoric, a fallacy is usually incorrect argumentation in reasoning resulting in a misconception or presumption. By accident or design, fallacies may exploit emotional triggers in the listener or interlocutor (e.g. appeal to emotion), or take advantage of social relationships between people (e.g. argument from authority). Fallacious arguments are often structured using rhetorical patterns that obscure any logical argument.

Very good thread & theory. This is why I love this site...when All of the facts are not available, all theories can be brought to the table and considered. The only thing I may disagree with is your idea of WHO has the knowledge because many came by their billions through evil means, but I catch your drift.

Here is one theory I am currently considering . The full specifics do sound quite complex, but there does appear to be more going on as archaeology continues to uncover more of our history.

Really? What is this?

Are you sure you’re not confusing, “It just happened,” with “We don’t know how it happened yet”? I think you’ll find the difference is that science would follow up with further investigation and inquiry into how it happened.

I thought about making a detailed rebuttal of your post more than once, but it isn’t worth the trouble, is it? It sounds as if you were raised by two TV sets and went to school on the internet.

Scientists never say ‘it just happened’. Nobody has feared the Catholic church – saving Catholics, of course – since Henry VIII sacked the monasteries and married that Boleyn woman anyway. When we say that Sumerian civilisation was technologically advanced, we mean they had writing, primitive algebra and the wheel. We know a lot about Sumerians because they have left behind various remains, not just writing.

A Ph.D in, say, biochemistry, does not make someone an expert in Atlantean legends, astrophysics or anything else excepting biochemistry. Knowledge nowadays is very specialised and a savant in one field is quite likely to be an ignoramus in others, as easily duped as any layman. Scientists are not afraid or reluctant to push outward the boundaries of thought: they regard that as their job.

If there is some ancient, secret key to knowledge and power, the people least likely to hold it would be political leaders, celebrities and the super-rich. These are folk who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of power, fame or wealth, stunting their own personalities and turning themselves into fools and monsters for the sake of the thing they prize. They are not the possessors of some wonderful secret; on the contrary, they visibly and obviously do not have a clue about what is really worth having in life. They have only one standard by which to judge the value of anything – friendship, beauty, laughter, an act of kindness, a gift, an injury – and that standard is utility, measured as potential progress towards their goal. These are the kind of people who cannot tell the difference between a house and a home, and would put a price on life itself. They are not to be envied or emulated, they are to be despised and pitied.

You don't seem to know that much about the Sumerians judging from the claims you make. They weren't an "American-like" (lol) civilization, and as advanced as they were in some fields, they most certainly aren't comparable to us today. And of course they didn't just disappear either, we know what happened to them: LINK

The only place where the Sumerians are described as some suuuuuuper advanced (almost modern) society is on pseudo-scientific sites that have ZERO objective evidence behind them, lie, or simply misinterpret data on purpose. I suggest you get your information from trustworthy sources in the future
