Ancient Aliens Debunked

Submitted by on September 29, 2012 – 4:44 PM80 Comments | 7,308 views

In ufology, a travesty has occurred. This travesty comes in a form of a television show that is extremely popular and does not seem to have an end in sight. The premise is not all that new. It’s been pushed onto the public for a few decades now, but it seems within the last few years the message has gotten clearer: Aliens are responsible for most of our ancestors triumphs. The ancient worlds could not have survived or flourished if it wasn’t for these intrusive grays.

Ancient Aliens is a television show on the sell out History channel that focuses on explaining history’s mysteries by associating them to extraterrestrials. From the great feats of engineering that are the pyramids of Giza to the massive heads of the buried giants of Easter Island, these ancient astronaut theorists keep suggesting that the engineering done by these great civilizations could not have been possible without the gray scaly hands of aliens who came down from a distant galaxy.

I became aware of the ‘Ancient Astronaut’ theory in the early 90s while reading several books on the subject of worldly mysteries. The first time I researched the subject I quickly dismissed it as just nonsense. Something about that theory just rubbed me the wrong way. There I was, reading about how societies like the Mayas, Aztecs, Incas, and the Egyptians could have never build such powerful empires by themselves. How somehow they were incapable of coming up with the notion of the number 0. How there immaculate understanding of the stars and distant planets could not have come from careful plotting and observing, but rather from the high tech intervention from above. How the Egyptians could not have possibly built the great pyramids or more incriminating, how they weren’t capable of engineering such a thing. Even though the bottom of the Nile is filled with sunken stones from a distant quarry. I’ve traveled down the Nile before. I’ve seen the quarries where the rocks have been carved out and the massive imperfect structures that these guys claim were done with laser tools and whatnot.

It doesn’t matter to these “theorists”. They want to associate any mystery or ancient puzzle with aliens. Taking from the ancient people –and their ancestors– the pride and credit they deserve.

Ancient Aliens is mindless banter. The show and the theorists that appear on it, with their fucked up hair and Taco Bell-fed asses, seem to enjoy the recent wave of publicity. They’ve become internet celebrities and intend to fully exploit it by coming up with more  insane theories. Bigfoot is an ALIEN! The Nazca Lines are a personal airstrip for ALIENS! The Epic of Gilgamesh? ALIENS!

I bet you none of these guys have taken a college course in where the Epic of Gilgamesh was discussed in length. Yet they’re quick to turn Sumerian text into an explanation for alien visitation.

Ancient Aliens Debunked is an online movie written and produced by Chris White, with commentary from Dr. Michael Hesier. The movie does one hell of a job refuting all this ancient alien trash. It’s filled with hard facts from anthropologists and archeologists who have taken their time in researching and learning as much as they can from the ancient civilization.

Do yourself a favor and watch it.

I'm a writer, a runner, and a hell of a coffee drinker residing in Los Angeles. I'm currently working on a book about Doris Bither and her terrifying account of a haunting in Culver City, California. The case was dubbed "The Entity" and it stands to be one of the most controversial cases ever to be studied by parapsychologists.

    Annnnnd, your dumb.

    I agree with you Chris, How can we pretend to know how these things came about? Give me answers PLEASE!!!

    Part of the problem is that von Däniken is a proven and admitted liar. He fabricated evidence, never did research he claimed to have done, and has basic and easily verifiable “facts” wrong. People he claims to have consulted as experts say they have never met or communicated with the man.

    Where does that leave his alternative view except as personal fantasy, which is the point of view he has said he wrote much of his books from.

    Knowing or not knowing how these things came about does not support the claim they came from aliens. That is called a “god in the gaps” argument.

    We don;t know something, or cannot answer a question, therefore it is beyond our knowing and must come from outside our experience. Historically it went something like this:

    “Where does thunder come from?”
    “I don’t know, must be some hairy guy in leather with a big hammer.”

    Today people are just replacing the deification of the unknown with aliens. What that argument comes down to is I don’t know therefore aliens, or put more simply; I don’t know, therefore I do know.

    It was nice to read a sane take on this subject. Thank You.
