This is entertaining, but I'm sure there will be at least some interest in this. I saw the link elsewhere, started watching, loads of fun, and couldn't find it linked here on FR.

“The Visitors” part 1 of 9. Rest of it links in order, apparently (I’ve reached 3 of 9).

The ancient aliens stuff is interesting but the steady diet of the stuff just causes me to change the channel. Its always the same charlatans carefully sidestepping obvious answers.

I caught a bit of one episode.

The thing I noted was their continual references to Erich von Daniken. I read some of his books in the 60s and 70s. The one thing I noticed was von Daniken never offered any facts but relied heavily on questions:

Could aliens have moved the stones to Easter Island?

Could aliens have built Stonehenge?

Did aliens actually dig the Grand Canyon?

Were aliens responsible for stealing the atmosphere from the moon?

==

The History Channel’s Ancient Aliens used the same approach — raising similar questions without offering much in the away of evidence.

Fascinating stuff - picking up on Erich Von Daniken’s premise.

A. We don’t know;)

When mankind's imagination concerning the “mysterious beyond” was caught up with pagan gods, people reported that there were unicorns, Giants in chariots of fire, headless men with faces in the middle of their chests, etc, etc.

Now that mankind's imagination concerning the “mysterious beyond” is caught up with science fiction and life on other planets; NOW we have mysterious diminutive bug eyed aliens with advanced technology and rectal probes.

There were no ancient reports of such things, only now that our imagination has caught up to such things......

1. Who is Erich Von Daniken?

2. Is he an alien?

3. Should he be deported?

4. If deported, would he be history?

5. If he becomes history, would someone try to channel him?

Mostly BS, but I am fascinated with the case of the Dogon tribe in Africa who had knowledge of Sirius-B which is the binary companion of Sirius. Since it’s not visible without special instruments, how did they know about it?

As a matter of fact there has been many mention of aliens of sort in ancient history.

This show is hilarious. Interviews with lots of UFO geeks who can’t get dates, and narration that begins every other sentence with “Could.” (”Could this suggest alien intervention?”)

Not really. The reports in ancient history are of physically imposing giants with supernatural powers, not diminutive aliens with advanced technology.

There were no reports of the almond eyed aliens popular today in ancient history, you can convince yourself otherwise if you so wish, but there were not.

Ancient cave drawings of almond eyed aliens in UFO’s?

Where?

The truth is that ancient humans were much more likely to report, and believe reports, about unicorns, headless people with faces in their chests, giants, dragons, etc, etc. There were no popular reports of UFO sightings or diminutive almond eyed aliens.

But people can convince themselves of all sorts of idiotic things. Look at the market in “dinosaur stones” in South America, once they discovered that there was a market for such among idiots.

I find these shows to be somewhat entertaining, but much too repetitive.

And lacking real hard evidence, they repeatedly drag out a storyline beyond my tolerance.

Q. What is it that we don’t know?

A. We don’t know;)

"The message is that there are known "knowns." There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns.
That is to say there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns.
There are things we do not know we don't know. So when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together, and we then say well that's basically what we see as the situation, that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns.
And each year, we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns."

END TIMES AND UFO PING LISTS PING:

PLEASE keep in mind . . . the critters chronically lie.

and, imho, they are part of the satan and his millenia long plan to deceive the world in these END TIMES.

They will usually assert some variation on the theme that they created Jesus and all the religious leaders of history merely for social engineering purposes.

Also remember that the best lies and deceptions, disinformation, include portions of the truth.

“They will usually assert some variation on the theme that they created Jesus and all the religious leaders of history merely for social engineering purposes.”

THAT was the major flaw that I did not like about Baylon5.

I like sci-fi, but there is most always an element that denies Christ. That one thought has been planted into American culture and pop culture for a long time.

I read von Daniken’s stuff when I was a teen.

I thought this sounded a lot like it.

Interesting take but not very plausible. Basically, it’s just another attack on religion and Christianity.

Anything from the left to discredit it.

Now I have to wait all over again for it to load.

Silly me.

I’ve seen some other videos of the same models I THINK.

I think pre-history Human Civilisations ie. (Humans who developed technologically advanced civilisations from 100,000 years ago to 12,000 years ago) or Evolved dinosaurian species that developed civilisations Millions of years ago who are living in space now would be a far move viable theory than the “ancient alien visitation” theories out there.

But all these theories have a about a million to a bnillion to one chance of actually being correct....
