  1. Last night I watched all about UFO’s on the History Channel. It was about what kind of a propulsion system a space craft would need to get from one planet to another. Now I know…..Angel Power.. LOL

        • No, the ” History” channel is is pseudo documentary channel. So, what do you except from them when they have sister channels like Fox News & Sky News which are the TV equivalent of the Onion News Network.

    • If you have everything figured out, why don’t you tell me why Nazca Lines exist or how the fuck they fit together 10 to 15 ton rocks with surgical precision in Machu Picchu .This series may not be 100 percent right but I don’t see any other smart ass coming out trying to explain this shit.

      • Yes,other smart asses as you implied,did come up with explanations to this “shit” Navigate through this website yourself,there is a section debunking the Machu Picchu and the Nazca Lines.Better still,you could watch the video they have on their website (which is 3 hours long) that debunks every claim on Ancient Aliens…Or you could watch segments from the video as you please.(It is neatly arranged on the website)

  3. Where and how do you get this information? How would a normal person who doesn’t know about this stuff be able to research on it?

    • Aaron, go to any of the articles i’ve written and scroll to the bottom. I’ve linked all my sources. Everything i’ve used as a resource is listed in each of my articles. It all comes down to doing a little bit of research in religious art.

  4. Just a bit of my two cents: a THEORY is just that…an educated guess. There are too many anachronistic things going on in ancient history for the ancient astronaut theories to NOT make a bit of sense. Until archaeologists can find and uncover things that explain how the pyramids were actually built, the ancient astronaut theory is just as valid as people digging big rocks out of mountains with no tools IMO. Where are the tools used to make such things? We’re only finding the structures, not the tools used to build the structures. Think about the prevalent themes in all world religions…people coming from the sky, helping people along, etc. Nazca lines are a good example. WHY would you want to paint a picture of a bug that can only be seen from space? Perhaps these ancient folks just thought it would be a cool thing to do but who in the world was going to look at it? There are many places where the ancient astronaut theory makes more sense than anything else and that can’t be ignored. Also, I would also suggest you research the Starchild Project…DNA evidence of alien human hybrids. Intriguing stuff. I for one like to draw my own conclusions after what’s presented on the show is put out there, and do my own research from there. I try my best to remain unbiased until I know one way or the other, with the mindfulness that not everything found on the internet or in books necessarily comes from a reliable source. But I do respect your viewpoint. I just can’t bring myself to disprove all of it, since the ancient astronaut theory seems to fit and make more sense than some of the others out there in quite a few areas.

    • I’m not sure why aliens are the default for anything not yet explained.

      It’s important to realize there were between 200 and 400 years from the time of the earliest (and crudest) pyramids like the step pyramid of Djoser (approx. 2650 BC) and the famous Egyptian pyramids (the ones equated with aliens because of their massive size and internal complexities) constructed around 2200 BC.

      200 to 400 years is a very long time. Imagine if we started building something today in 2012 with an expected completion date in the year 2212 or 2412. Just some perspective to think about.

      Maybe if the pyramids had cropped up overnight, then i might wonder how they happened. But 200 to 400 years to perfect their craft doesn’t seem mysterious or unrealistic.

      Aliens are to modern humans what gods were to ancient people. Neither of them are/were real, it’s just our nature as humans to attribute the unknown to something more powerful than ourselves.

    • You asked “WHY would you want to paint a picture of a bug that can only be seen from space?”

      You’re joking right? Every civilization since the beginning of recorded time has thought that their gods, creators, deities, or whatever else they believed in – had a celestial origin or at least inhabited the sky. Ever hear of Mt. Olympus, sun worship, moon worship, anything “up there” worship?

      Therefore, it isn’t too difficult to imagine primitive people making signs that could only be seen from space. Any rational person that still can think for him or herself can not believe in such obvious fraud as been being shown on the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” series.

    • Absolutely right on. Another example of doing anything for money. I wonder how these so called “experts” can look anyone in the eye. As far as I’m concerned they are low lifes who are worse than the old time carnival barkers. These so called History Channel experts are completely with out any integrity whatsoever.

  5. This just only leads me to the conclusion that this kind of material is best left to a paranormal variety hour than singular shows on it’s on. Good luck telling anyone in “showbiz” that though. Five bucks says that the history channel shows more interesting junk in other countries than it does here.

  6. Debunked? You must be joking! Ancient alien theology is more believable than your spiritual pipe dreams. Keep beating that bible! All 1/1000 of the truth

    • Initially i was believing but after series of episode they were telling evry thing related to alien like da vinci, bermuda as space time portal etc etc then after i saw debunked theory then evry luks completly rediculous, then i realized how its easy to brain wash others, but any way it was entertaining

  7. Now this all theories of alien n ufos etc etc is flopped be us dooms day is flopped , its only rumour of some nassisictic dumb peoples

  8. Hmm…so this is based on “ART and UFOs? No Thanks, Only Art”…well, that’s a bad way of beginning this, I’m an artist so I can tell.
    I would have liked you to make some kind of introduction of where do you come from and what u truly believe in so we have an idea of your real colors.
    Religious people generally react by covering their ears and eyes at things like Ancient Alliens, Gays etc as they itch their nerves. People build web pages to discredit everything in favor of their “skeptical” ways, when it’s more about their religious ways of seeing things which doesn’t allow space to any other possibility. They follow their own “agendas” as well. Atheists don’t believe in anything other than be born, grow, work, breed, die and done…all human facts made by humans and nothing else above, below or around.
    There’s some kind of crazy world happening out there. Websites, videos made to enGod things and other pages to bring them down and in the end it’s all up to each individual to believe or not in what they see/hear/read. I’ve always wondered why instead of being “against” something people just don’t go being PRO another thing. If you’re against Ancient Alliens and the Investigators who are behind it why don’t u just go making a website or videos PRO the things you believe in? If you think God and his Winged Angels were behind all what Ancient Alliens are all about or if you think it was all work of humans then go PRO them. I feel like It would be more honest and more constructive.
    Warm Regards

    • Absolutely. The reason they spend so long ‘debunking’ and less time being ‘pro’ something, perhaps is because they are terrified of other possibilities due to the fear that their narrow beliefs and concepts might be threatened by anything outside ‘the status quo’. When dealing with people who are convinced that nothing is possible apart from the opinions spouted by ‘scientists’ and ‘god’ in relationship to ‘unproved’ theories such as the logical assumption that there may indeed be other forms of life besides ourselves in the vastness of space, I find this is useful – sometimes.

      ‘I presume that you’ve either seen God or scientists have proved he exists?’

      • Actually, the “reason they spend so long ‘debunking’ and less time being ‘pro’ something” is because there isn’t any evidence to support the “pro.” Are you contending that these pieces of art actually depict UFOs and such?

  9. all great points BUT… noone ever touched on “WHY” did they carve statues on easter island “WHY” build a pyramid “WHY” did the Hope indians keep movin and makin new cities every 100yrs?????? WAIT!!! i think i know they made so many statues cause they forgot they put one on shore then when they got the second one out there they just left it went home woke up and said HEY!! let’s carve a statue and put it on shore what you guys say??? one egyptian said to the othe always wanted to live in the mountains lets build some!!! one Hope said to the other hell i aint walkin back home lets just build another city out of the heaviest material we can find so we can have this place for 100yrs then move for a better view or … ah hell u guys prolly know those answers, NO ALIENS JUST TALKIN HUMAN NATURE THIS ALL SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHIN WE ALL WOULD DO!!! if we all had a spare 20yrs TO BURN or WE JUST GOT BORED… RIGHT!?

  10. History Channel may not be always spot on, but then again using History Channel to debunk the whole anciens astronaut theory is very narrow thinking. There are various other sources that prove this theory. Do your homework people!!!! Look at anciens Mayan, Egyptian, African, Aboriginal, Indian depictians.. And above all, learn about the thousands clay Sumerian tablets from 6000 BC.

    Also, take a look at the documentary Sirius made by Steven Greer from CSETI. He has literal hundreds of video testimonies of high ranked army intelligence, politicians, scientists and eye witnesses that prove there have been ET’s on earth since 1947 and that there is a complete coverup because of the technologie that they brought to earth and that the military industrial complex now also possess but don’t want to share with the world.

    Look for MJ12 or majestic 12!

    Many countries around the world are beginning to share their UFO files.

    The bible is full of subtle references to ancient gods decending from the skies in loud thunder and smoke and fire. And not only the bible for that matter. Look at the book of enoch, or at the mahabharata…

    The illuminatie is no joke people, they are trying hard to influence the people in all sorts of dispicable ways.

    Also look for Ancient Knowlegde on YouTube …. And please.. !! DO YOUR HOMEWORK !!!

    • Nothing and nobody proves aliens have visited the earth. The Sumerian tablets, as interpreted by Sitchin, is a joke. Sitchin was a hack. Nobody besides Sitchin reads them as proof of alien life or alien interaction.

      UFOs are what the name says – Unidentified – not proof of extrasterrestrial anything. The bible has ZERO references to aliens. I debunk the biblical references here:

      The illuminati existed as a small group in the late 1700s. They were dissolved somewhere around 1798, never to be seen again. The iLLuminati haven’t existed in over 200 years. If you believe they exist, please name names and your proof.

      Sorry to be so direct on some points, but i hear these vague, abstract arguments all the time and nobody is able to put forth anything concrete.


  11. The arrogance of the science community always amazes me. The truth is nobody has all the answers do we? Last check we still die and time continues with or without us. The irony is that the same pompous people that promote “Progressive” thinking are same ones that are fearful of alternate out of the box new thought. How counter-intuitive is that? Let these guys stretch their imaginations and you be smart enough to at least give it thought without buying the entire hypothesis or completely rejecting it. Given the state of humanity I would say we have much to explore and learn yet.
    Ironically I am a scientist myself.
    Equally annoying are dogmatic religious believers. Who has all the answers….NOBODY!
    Keep your mind open folks

    • As Laurence Krauss said – I like to keep an open mind, but not so open my brain falls out. Scientists are always thinking outside the box, but being imaginative doesn’t mean accepting every crazy idea as a possibility. Not all ideas are created equal, and much of what these guys propose has been debunked years ago. Science admits to the stuff it doesn’t yet know – but it also knows what it’s disproved, and most of the ancient alien hypothesis falls into that category. That, and it takes so many bizarre leaps of logic that it really is staggering that people subscribe to this viewpoint. And I’m not writing that as a religious person who sees the ancient alien hypothesis as a threat to my beliefs. I’m an atheist who looks at the facts, and in this instance they are found so wanting in almost every aspect.

  12. The UFO phenomena is a real issue if you study the cases and evidence. Not all are real and are fake no doubt. The explanations by the debunkers are less credible then what they are trying to disprove. If these cases do turn out to be real aliens visiting, there is no doubt that they have been here for as long as us or longer and this opens up our past to a whole new history for us on this planet. What gets me is that science tells us that the universe is full of life and yet can’t deal with the fact that they are more advanced than us and probably can travel from stars that are far from us with their technology. They probably assume that the first thing they would do is call upon them for guidance when they get here, what a laugh. The show is a show and liberty is taken so what the point is that religion has taken liberty for much longer.

  13. I think a lot of what they say might be true but you can sure tell when they are about to lie because they put it on ancient alien theorist believability’s remember if they didn’t lie then it would be boring.

  14. It baffles me to hear that Aliens visiting earth and building pyramids is thinking outside of the box, or being open minded. On the contrary, these “theories” are just easy answers. Kind of like “Because God wills it”.
    Just blurting out “IT WAS ALIENS” as an answer to questions like “How did they manage to build something so great, with such exquisite detail?” is just lazy and self serving.
    When you reject what the real evidence points toward in favor of speculation you are CLOSING YOUR MIND.

  15. The sad thing with the ancient aliens ‘theory’ (which, of course, it isn’t – despite the comment earlier that a theory is just an educated guess, the scientific use is FAR more than that. This barely qualifies as a hypothesis given its largely untestable nature), is that the vast majority of what they say can be shown to be nonsense with even the most cursory of research – and some claims don’t need any more than your own eyes to debunk (claims that stones are cut and laid with surgical precision, made at right angles, when the set square being held against them shows this simply isn’t true).

    The stuff isn’t new either – most of it was debunked when Von Daniken wrote his first book, and has since been even more thoroughly debunked since as knowledge has increased, yet the ancient astronaut proponents cling to them in willful ignorance (Von Daniken has even admitted claims in his book are deliberately cloudy or outright lies, but has failed to remove them from later editions, which should be enough to get them consigned to the fiction section right there).

    I’ve even seen numerous episodes use Joseph Smith’s discovery of the golden tablets as proof he was in contact with aliens. The golden tablets have been shown to be not only forgeries, but laughable ones at that – and yet this series holds them up as evidence. That’s you know you’re on shaky ground. Couple that with ludicrous leaps of logic, veiled racism (there’s no way anyone not living in a primarily white developed country could have built these) and huge contradictions between episodes, and you have a nonsensical programme. That said, it is brilliantly sh*t and I do love watching it!

    And on the original author’s religious views, this is my first time on this site but I think the phrase “Aliens are to modern humans what gods were to ancient people. Neither of them are/were real, it’s just our nature as humans to attribute the unknown to something more powerful than ourselves” probably sums it up. Could be wrong though.

    • I don’t know. I’m Mormon and weird stuff happens to me all the time. My 1st son was born on 9/11 and I was pregnant at 15 which is rape but it was never prosecuted. That number by itself isn’t so exciting. Every day, 86 babies are born in the United States by rape. But it gets stranger. I baptized as Christian reformed when I was 12 on Mother’s Day and my 2nd son was born on Mother’s Day 9 years later on 5/9/99. A few years ago I baptized Mormon and the day I baptized my oldest son wasn’t allowed to come. He was a juvenile offender and his probation officer wouldn’t allow him to attend. I cried so hard. I baptized any ways. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, to do without my son. I never lost my parental rights. I don’t know why that woman thought we should lose Christ. He needed it. The day of my baptism the lottery numbers came up my son’s birthday:9911. I don’t play. The only way I know is something woke me that night. I fell asleep on the couch and I woke up to watch that number be pulled. I had a strange dream that night before I woke. Also, When I was a little girl my mother reported a UFO because I told her I saw one. I don’t remember anything. I believe in God, angels, aliens, ghosts and sometimes I believe in evil when I wake up with sleep paralysis, feeling like something has been in the dark. I have so many weird things happen and I am always trying to figure it out and try and keep a skeptical and open mind. I think God us with me because I have cerebral palsy and I am a woman and have braved many things and give back many good things.

  16. I have really been thinking about the paintings which depict the Crucifixion. The ones that show the sun and the moon that people describe as spaceships. It’s strange to me because old pictures were meant to educate because there were so many people illiterate. Everything in a painting should have an educational purpose to teach about Christianity (They teach that on the History Channel, also). So you could say that the sun and moon have fled. That’s the purpose. But what I’m reading is, between the 6th and 9th hour it was dark. Of course, there has been about 1200 recorded changes in the Bible so I wouldn’t know what the Bible said during that time. Why didn’t they want to depict Christ hanging in the dark? That’s a significant Christian verse that repeats in the gospel harmonies. Could they have placed the sun and moon at the position for 6 and 9? Or a clock or a thousand other ways to depict that. Like shadows. There’s something more with the sun and moon thing. But you should look at your paintings like they are Christian education. Not just fine art. I think it could be aliens. It could be angels taking away light, even.
