Yes, this thread is inspired by that History Channel show Ancient Aliens. The show attempts to show the likelihood of our ancient ancestors being visited by aliens that helped them to build their mind blowing structures such as the pyramids. The show makes some very good points..but even if you haven't seen it, what's your opinions on the matter?

I thought this was already settled in Stargate SG-1, it was a documentary after all :p

No but in all seriousness the egyptian pyramids or aztec/mayan temples/pyramids could have been built by "aliens."

I've been to Chichen Itza and it is extraordinary. The one thing that caught my eye though was that on one of the walls/ruined structure was an image of a head with a beard that is eerily similar to depictions of people from ancient Babylonia. Which brings up the question why is it there because it clearly stands out from the known depictions of Mayans.

Seeing how Babylonia isn't just a simple walk from Chichen Itza one could either interpret it as signs that there was something that connected these ancient civilizations or it's merely a coincidence that the Mayans carved an image that looked nothing like any of their previous depictions.

For all we know perhaps the Mayan Calender is counting down not to the "end of the world" as some tend to believe but to the return of "aliens." Mayans believe that 2012 will be the beginning of a new era, which is more along my lines of thinking. However, this isn't a thread to discuss the 2012, so I made the point I needed to make.

I certainly believe that there's bound to be other life out there whether or not they've been to earth, for all we know the ideas of Stargate might not be so far from the truth as it seems. I can't fully say whether or not we had alien assistance in building some of these ancient structures. I'd like to think that man was capable of building these great structures by themselves, but I wouldn't lose any sleep if I found out that there was in fact alien involvement.

Oh btw, I haven't watched the show "Ancient Aliens" so I'll have to check it out when I can.

I believe in it all in much the same way that most believe that they breathe air; it is not a question. I will not start naming examples, as the shows have already done such a great job at that. As for myself, there are elements of my own body, personality, and even my very memories that do not conform to what you can expect from the majority of humans. I will not go into details on this. Suffice it to say, these has raised some questions as to my own origins.

People weren't dumb in ancient times, building these impressive monuments certainly took a lot of effort without modern technology, but was it impossible without alien help? Hardly. You probably don't understand how e.g. nuclear fission works either, yet you don't claim that aliens were behind that, do you? :lulz:

It would be considerably less insane to suggest that ancient civilizations had some contact with each other and shared information on how to build these things, but I wouldn't exactly bet on that either.

I always suspected you were nuts. Now there is proof.

“Nuts?” Such an expression would denote a mental deficiency. I hereby make no claims to that designation. I merely don’t seem to fit in with the majority of humans, not that I consider that to be a problem.

[COLOR=Black]The idea is older than the history channel. There is a guy, Erich von Däneken, who wrote a whole bunch of books about it. I bet the history channel is based on those books. I even read one of those books once. It is interesting the same way most conspiracy theories are interesting, but it didn't convince me. The evidence is rather thin.

The idea that most religions exist because of some aliens who crash landed here and decided it might be a good idea to pretend to be Gods is funny though.

I recall a Tom Baker Dr. Who episode where all the Egyptian Gods were actually Martians =p

Whilst I do believe in aliens, I also believe in engineering. Da Vinci, and several others for that matter, had designs for flying contraptions very similar to the helicopter. So from this, is it not possible that various other people in history had ideas that have only come to fruition in the last hundred odd years? What Christianity referred to as 'Witches' or 'Pagans' or any many of religion, lots of them used leaves and fungi to 'heal' people; what if they had stumbled upon penicillin and the like, but didn't call it that, or even know anything about it, except that it healed some ill people?

Due to various burnings of libraries, books and scriptures, we cannot be sure of all the things that ancient people knew, for Christianity deemed it wrong, and they had all the soldiers (see Holy Roman Empire).

As for aliens, again, it could've been recorded and promptly burnt by Christians.

Strangest thing about the ancient civilizations are stuff like the Nazca lines. Geoglyphs that resemble anything from hummingbirds to humans, and dogs. Stakes found at the end of the lines have been carbon dated to around 450-600 AD. I can understand pyramids, temples, and other places of worship or religious symbolism, but why imprint glyphs onto the surface in a manner so they can only be seen from above? It's like ancient graffiti. I'm not saying I believe that to be related to aliens, but it's still a very strange behaviour, no matter what their beliefs were.

If it where aliens surely we would have seen or heard more of them in various ways.. "Coincidence" , and "common sense": when you try to build or calculate after some trial and error you will end up with the most practical (efficient) solution. Building a piramid like shape object for example when stacking stones togethe to form some special building. And how about inventions which were done at more or less the same time but by seperate people living in other countries and complete ( ?) isolation/secrecy.... And then we still have have to consider "global" contacts (by land and sea), even in the ancient areas.
