According to ancient alien theorists, extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history. But how did this concept develop? Is there any evidence to support it? And, especially, is there any connection with Hearing or auditory clues to support this notion? Hearing International will explore this topic.
The 1960s space program played no small part in this notion of extraterrestrials. The idea was that if mankind could travel to other planets, why couldn’t extraterrestrials visit Earth? In 1968, the Swiss author Erich von Däniken published controversial book, Chariots of the Gods? Although a best seller, Von Daniken put forth the controversial hypothesis that thousands of years ago space travelers from other planets visited Earth. During their visits they taught humans technology and greatly influenced their ancient religions. This so-called ancient alien theory grew out of the centuries-old idea that life exists on other planets, and that humans and extraterrestrials have met before. These Ancient alien theorists suggest that thousands of years ago, extraterrestrials landed on Earth, where they were hailed as gods and helped shape human civilization. While this theory may seem preposterous and not without criticism, the ancient alien theorists basically use two considerations used to support their notion that extraterrestrials made visits to Earth:
1. Ancient religious texts.
2. Physical specimens such as cave drawings, stone sculptures and pyramids.
The ancient alien theory, also known as the ancient astronaut theory is a hypothesis that seeks to explain strange archaeological, mythological, anthropological, or palaeoanthropological unexplained issues from about 180,000 years in the human past. Believers in this theory contend that a race of intelligent extraterrestrials visited and/or colonized the Earth, and while here upgraded primitive Man by means of genetic engineering to create the Human Race as it is known today. Check out the Pagan God from a Temple in Tiahuanaco (close to Lake Titicaca in present day Boliva). A striking resemblance to an Astronaut.
Suggestions in ancient religious texts have been found that seem to lend credence for the possibility that humans witnessed and interacted with gods or other heavenly beings who descended from the sky, sometimes in vehicles resembling spaceships, helicopters, or submarines and possess spectacular powers. (Check out the picture of Egyptian Hieroglyphics here. It has an eerie resemblance to a modern day helicopter).
Physical objects, such as artwork depicting “alien-like” figures and ancient architectural marvels like Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt. The pyramids are cited by these theorists as an example of how Mankind must have been assisted by a more technologically developed group of people, such as aliens. To them it is unrealistic that the Egyptians could have built the Pyramids without assistance. Here are some facts about the pyramids that make building them without help on their own suspect to these theorists. Some facts about perpetuated by the theorists about the Great Pyramid:
- It is so perfect that we wouldn’t be able to duplicate it even with the technology that we have now.
- It is made of stones where each stone weighs from 1 – 20 tons.
- It consists of 100,000 stones.
- It is 481 feet tall
- The base forms a nearly perfect square (maybe about 2 centimeters off)
- It took 10,000 people per month to build the pyramid in a span of 20 years.
The ancient alien theorists use these facts to support that the ancient Egyptians were in capable of building the pyramids alone. They point to the facts that without any tools, the Egyptians had to carry 20-ton stones and lift them 400 feet up? Archeologists suggest that the Egyptians built a ramp made of rocks that went from the ground up. The other side of the current pyramid building argument is that it would take more rocks to build the ramp than it would take to build the pyramids and then, where did the rocks go when the pyramid was built?
- The perimeter of the great pyramid divided by two times the height would equal to pi (3.1416…) up to the fifteenth digit.
- The 3 pyramids of Giza, just outside of Cairo, are exactly aligned with the stars in Orion’s belt.
- The height of the great pyramid (481 ft) is 1/1,000,000,000 of the distance of Earth from the sun.
- The great pyramid is lined up exactly with the magnetic north pole.
- The great pyramid lies 31 degrees north and 31 degrees west, longitude and latitude.
There are even areas of the Earth, in South America, on Easter Island, in other parts of the Middle East, China and elsewhere that could be construed as monuments for giving directions to places and/or landing strips for space vehicles, such as the Nasca Lines (Left) in the Peruvian desert. If aliens visited Earth in the past, could they make an appearance in the future? For ancient alien theorists, the answer is a resounding yes. For the rest of us there are some major suspicions, but let’s say that you believe that there are some compelling artifacts, monuments, and some written evidence of the possible existence of these aliens assisting Mankind in development and creativity……
..But What Is The Hearing Connection?
These days Internet hoaxes abound and it is possible to manufacture just about anything and post it in an Internet blog, feature article, or You Tube video. In the next week we will explore these auditory clues to the Ancient Alien or Ancient Astronaut Theories. Are these the recorded voices of those that helped The Egyptians and Mankind learn or is this just another alien Internet hoax spurred on by those that have totally lost their mind? You listen and click here to decide! We will explore these auditory clues in next episode of Hearing International’s Auditory Clues to Extraterrestrial Visits.
