Ancient astronauts

Certain authors theorize that intelligent extraterrestrial beings called ancient astronauts or ancient aliens have visited Earth, and this contact is connected with the origins or development of human cultures, technologies, and religions. A common variant of the idea include proposals that deities from most, if not all, religions are actually extraterrestrials, and their technologies were taken as evidence of their divine status.12

These proposals have been popularized, particularly in the latter half of the 20th century, by writers Erich von Däniken, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert K. G. Temple, and David Icke.3 Ancient astronauts have been widely used as a plot device in science fiction, but the idea that ancient astronauts actually existed is not taken seriously by most academics, and has received little or no credible attention in peer reviewed studies.[

    Cool… my dad introduced me to the work of Von Daniken, he was really taken with the idea (still is). Will have to take in the vid when I find the time, know it will be interesting… Back later, cheers mate. (Nice experimenting ;-D)

  • Always held great fascination for me, as it holds many logical explanations…ie during ww11 and american plane landed in a isolated part of New Guinea… the indigenous people never saw a plane or white people before and started to worship the plane and the crew as gods….makes you wonder…read this in an article a while back…thanks for your view virgo
