Did Aliens Build The Pyramids? This Study May Answer The Question Once And For All

For thousands of years, the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt has fascinated humans from around the globe. As the oldest and sole remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, there are many theories as to how these pyramids were constructed. The question most people ask is whether aliens or humans did it.

For years, conspiracy theorists have peddled a claim that human beings could not have possibly built these magnificent structures on their own. They must have had help from above, and they aren’t talking about a deity.

That’s right, many people believe that aliens built the pyramids or at least helped humans do it.

But scientists and archaeologists have repeatedly debunked these theories over the years, and one study, in particular, puts the question to rest once and for all.

University of Amsterdam Physics Professor Daniel Bonn and his team successfully duplicated the way ancient Egyptians moved massive stones from a quarry to the site where the pyramids now stand after researchers found a painting dating back to 1900 B.C. on the wall of a tomb showing over 100 men moving a massive statue using ropes and sledge.

It turns out that the men simply poured a certain amount of water on the sand to make moving heavy objects such as statues and stones across the desert possible.

“Egyptologists thought it was a purely ceremonial act,” Bonn told Live Science. “The question was: Why did they do it?”

They did it because dry sand just clumps up and creates too much drag to pull objects across. But using water helps connect the grains of sand to turn it into a more solid surface.

“If you use dry sand, it won’t work as well, but if the sand is too wet, it won’t work either,” Bonn explained. “There’s an optimum stiffness. It turns out that wetting Egyptian desert sand can reduce the friction by quite a bit, which implies you need only half of the people to pull a sledge on wet sand, compared to dry sand.”

So, the ancient Egyptians were clearly intelligent enough to construct the pyramids and did not use nearly as many laborers to do the job as most people think.

Here’s the video featuring the painting and the experiment via YouTube.

A University of Chicago and Harvard archaeologist Mark Lehner agrees.

After viewing the painting himself and spending years among the Egyptian people and studying their history, he can’t fathom taking their monumental achievement away from them and giving it to alien beings that we don’t even know actually exist.

“I first went to Egypt in 1972 and ended up living there 13 years,” he told PBS. I was imbued with ideas of Atlantis and Edgar Cayce and so on. So I went over, starting from that point of view, but everything I saw told me, day by day, year by year, that they were very human and the marks of humanity are everywhere on them.”

Indeed, from tool markings on the stones to the same quarries where stones are still being cut out in much the same way today to paintings showing exactly how the Egyptians moved the stone and built structures, the evidence that humans built the pyramids is too much to ignore.

“Everything that I have found convinces me more and more that indeed it is this society that built the Sphinx and the Pyramids,” Lehner continued. “Every time I go back to Giza my respect increases for those people and that society, that they could do it. You see, to me, it’s even more fascinating that they did this. And that by doing this they contributed something to the human career and its overall development. Rather than just copping out and saying, ‘There’s no way they could have done this.’ I think that denigrates the people whose evidence we actually find.”

“One of the most compelling pieces of evidence we have is graffiti on ancient stone monuments in places that they didn’t mean to be shown,” he explained, referring to the painting showing laborers moving a statue on a sledge. “Like on foundations when we dig down below the floor level, up in the relieving chambers above the King’s chamber in the Great Pyramid, and in many monuments of the Old Kingdom—temples, other pyramids.”

Lehner even conducted his own experiment, not a miniature experiment like Bonn’s, but with real people and real stones using a real wooden sledge. Only this time, they moved the sledge on wooden rollers, another technique that could have been used.

The results prove that people can move heavy stones efficiently over a distance, thus confirming Bonn’s experiment.

In addition, the Egyptians also used barges to transport stones via rivers and canals and all of these methods and more were likely used to construct the pyramids.

For instance, a man in Michigan built his own Stonehenge by himself using simple techniques, moving and raising stone blocks that weigh anywhere from hundreds of pounds to several tons. The Egyptians could have done the same, but with more manpower.

Lehner also decried the theories that anyone else must have built the pyramids and explained that people who make such suggestions feel lost.

“This was as great as it comes in terms of art and sculpture and building ships from any place on the planet, in the whole repertoire of ancient cultures,” he said. “Why is there such a need to look for yet another culture, to say, “No, it wasn’t these people, it was some civilization that’s lost, even older. To some extent, I think we feel the need to look for a lost civilization on time’s other horizon because we feel lost in our civilization.”

Yet another Great Pyramid expert, Director General of the Giza site Zahi Hawass, concurs.

“We are lucky because we found this whole evidence of the workmen who built the Pyramids,” he said. “We found the artisans. Mark found the bakery, and we found this settlement of the camp, and hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Overseer of the Site of the Pyramid, the Overseer of the West Side of the Pyramid. We found the craftsmen, the man who makes the statue of the Overseer of the Craftsmen, the Inspector of Building Tombs, Director of Building Tombs—I’m telling you all the titles. We found 25 unique new titles connected with these people.”

When asked who built the pyramids, Hawass definitively responded.

“It was the Egyptians who built the Pyramids. The Great Pyramid is dated with all the evidence, I’m telling you now, to 4,600 years, the reign of Khufu. They are not people from a lost civilization. They are not from outer space. They are Egyptian, and their skeletons are here and were examined by scholars and doctors. The race of all the people we found are completely supporting that they are Egyptians.”

The idea that humans were incapable of building these great structures and that we must have had divine help or help from aliens is insulting. Ancient peoples had various techniques for cutting stone and moving it, and also were able to harness manpower in a way that is largely unheard of in today’s modern world. While modern peoples have been able to replace manpower with machines, thus making construction possible with just a small team of people, building such structures like the pyramids required tens of thousands of people using what many today would consider primitive tools and techniques.

But the fact remains that they did build the pyramids, and the human race should be proud of that achievement and learn from it. Because it’s not just Egyptian history. It’s human history. And aliens had nothing to do with it.

S01 E04 Ancient Aliens: Close Encounters

President Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, Crusaders in the Middle Ages…What did they have in common? They either experienced or believed in the possibility of alien encounters.

And the fact is, there have been many descriptions by various chroniclers speaking about a strange cloud in the sky that glowed red.

Columbus, on his first voyage, he noted in the log, a glowing object rise out of the water and head off into the atmosphere.

Could alien beings have been responsible for biblical floods, medieval plagues, and even ancient nuclear attacks?

Visitations occurred since before recorded history all the way to today.

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings.

What if it were true? Did ancient aliens help to shape our history? And what if these visitations didn’t only occur thousands of years ago, but much more recently? Might there be evidence of close real-life encounters?

Alamogordo, New Mexico. White Sands Proving Ground, July 16, 1945.

Early in the morning, a number of U.S. military officers and scientists gather to watch a powerful new weapon being tested.

Some believe the device will be a complete failure; others think it might destroy the entire state of New Mexico.

As a precaution, viewing stations are placed from ten to 20 miles away from the test site.

At precisely 5:29 and 45 seconds, the first atomic bomb is detonated.

Three, two, one Fire!

The blast emits a fireball over 600 feet wide and produces an explosion equal to 20,000 tons of TNT.

The mushroom cloud reaches over reverberations can be felt nearly 100 miles away.

The world had a new weapon; one so terrifying it left even its creator, Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, shocked and shaken. A few people laughed. A few people cried. Most people were silent.

For the first time in its history, the Earth had been assaulted by a manmade weapon of incredible power.

But what if it had all happened before?

What if an explosion of even greater force and destructiveness had long ago shaped the Earth’s history?

Some people have suggested on the basis of a number of lines of evidence that there may have been atomic warfare, atomic bombs, atomic explosions, in the very distant past.

Atomic warfare among ancient civilizations may sound like something out of a science fiction novel, but descriptions of similar deadly occurrences can be found in the very same text Dr. Oppenheimer quoted after the New Mexico atomic test.

I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita:

“Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”

Part of an ancient Hindu scripture known as The Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita was written sometime between the fifth and second century B.C.

This massive 100,000-verse text contains stories about the ancient empire Rama, which it is said existed over 12,000 years ago, or roughly 5,000 years before the earliest recorded civilization in Mesopotamia.

If you read the ancient Indian epics, they read like modern-day science fiction.

Yet they are thousands of years old with references not only of flying chariots and of these gods that had these incredible technological capabilities, but incredible weapons that they used in those epic battles.

They had what was called a Brahma weapon.

There were many people that were burned and melted by the Brahma weapon.

Ancient astronaut theorists believe the Brahma weapon was an early nuclear device because the descriptions of its deadly aftereffects are eerily similar to the effects of exposure to intense radiation.

It is a theory primarily discounted by conventional science.

There is no evidence that a nuclear bomb was described in The Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita.

It describes a battle. In battles, there are explosions, big explosions.

It’s one thing about suggesting that, you know, battles have explosions, but that’s not really what we’re looking at.

You’ve got to look at the whole picture.

One reference that we have, for example, speaks of these explosions that were brighter than a thousand suns.

And when these blasts occurred, the suns were twirling in the air, trees went up in flames, and there was just this mass destruction.

After those blasts, people who survive start to lose their hair and nails start to fall out.

I mean, right there, we have a concise reference to radiation poisoning, nuclear fallout.

And those texts are thousands of years old.

But if The Mahabharata is based on fact, wouldn’t archaeologists have uncovered physical or radiological evidence? According to ancient astronaut theorists, they have.

The Indus Valley, Southern Pakistan.

In 1922, an officer with an Indian archeological survey group discovered the ruins of an ancient city known as Mohenjo-Daro.

According to mainstream archeologists, the city, whose name means “mound of the dead,” had flourished between However, scientists in Pakistan have suggested Mohenjo-Daro is much older.

Mainstream archeologists believe the city was abandoned as a result of climatic changes or possibly a decrease in trade.

But when the ruins of Mohenjo-Daro were discovered in the 1920s, 44 skeletons were found lying face down in the street, many holding hands.

Their faces and body positioning suggested they suffered a sudden, violent death.

You have a culture of people who were lying dead in the street.

Archaeologists have found human remains, and something big has happened to these people.

What, in fact, did happen to the people of Mohenjo-Daro? Why is there evidence that wild animals avoided scavenging their remains? And why, even after thousands of years, had their bones not decayed? In certain areas of that site, you find increased levels of radiation. And radiation exists all over the place.

When, all of a sudden, you have higher levels of radiation in some regions of the world, the question, arises, “Why?”

Is it possible that Mohenjo-Daro was one of the cities mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita– a city that suffered the equivalent of a sudden atomic attack?

In his 1979 book, Atomic Destruction in 2000 B.C., British researcher David Davenport claimed to have found a 50-yard-wide epicenter at Mohenjo-Daro where everything appeared to have been fused through a transformative process known as “vitrification.”

Vitrification is a process in which regular-type stone gets molten into a magma state, and then it hardens again.

But once the stone is hardened again, it feels like glass.

At Mohenjo-Daro, we find evidence of vitrification, which could have only been achieved if the material was exposed to extreme heat by some type of a blast.

When British and Indian and Pakistani archeologists began doing excavations in the Sian Desert, on the borders of India and Pakistan, in the late 1940s and early 1950s, what they found in these cities– Mohenjo-Daro, Harrapa, Kot Diji– was archeological evidence to show there were atomic weapons.

Only it happened in ancient times.

There’s other evidence in parts of Africa, and the Middle East, where it would seem to be like some sort of atomic explosion had taken place there and had turned the desert sand into glass.

And that’s precisely what happened at Alamogordo, in New Mexico, when they detonated the first atom bomb in the desert.

Could the strange ruins found in the Indus Valley contain evidence of an ancient atomic explosion? If so, where did these powerful weapons come from? Who was using them? And why?

In the ancient Indian texts themselves it says, and I quote, “At one point, three giant cities were orbiting the Earth.”

And those giant cities were often described as being made of gleaming metal and iron. And at one point, those three cities went to war with each other. And it’s described how the gods threw weapons at each other, destroying those cities, they all went up in flames and fire came raining down onto Earth.

So, when you read those passages, the question I ask is: What is it that our ancestors tried to describe here? And I think that it was some type of a technology that was witnessed, yet our ancestors, while being highly intelligent, didn’t understand the nuts and bolts aspects behind that technology.

And so they created something divine out of it, something supernatural, yet it never was divine.

It never was supernatural.

If, in fact, The Mahabharata is describing historical events, might we also find similar accounts in other ancient writings? As far as ancient astronaut theorists are concerned, we need to look no further than in the pages of the Holy Bible.

According to one of the stories contained in the book of Genesis, angels were sent by God to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of the sins of their inhabitants.

Only a righteous man named Lot, along with his family was to be spared.

But while making their escape, Lot’s wife ignores the angels’ warning not to look back, and upon gazing at the horror and devastation, is turned into a pillar of salt.

When you are at a nuclear testing range, and you witness a nuclear blast, you’re told to look away and not to look straight into the blast.

And here we have a similar description in the ancient biblical text where instructions were given, “Whatever you do, don’t look back because you will die.” And sure enough, it happened to Lot’s wife.

Could it be that the story of Sodom and Gomorrah is a description of a nuclear explosion, similar to the one described in the Hindus’ Mahabharata?

Do the stories of The Mahabharata and the Bible represent actual historical events? For ancient astronaut theorists, the answer is a resounding “yes.”

And they believe the so-called “angels” who brought forth the devastation were, in fact, beings from another planet– alien visitors armed with advanced weaponry.

September 2000. The Black Sea, Turkey.

Marine archaeologist Robert Ballard and his team of underwater scientists discover what appears to be a farmhouse some 330 feet below the surface.

Estimates suggest the submerged dwelling to be approximately 7,500 years old.

Ballard and other scholars speculated that rising ocean levels could have caused the Mediterranean Sea to burst through a natural dam, creating a flood so great it drowned an estimated 58,000 square miles under 500 feet of water.

But more than finding the ruins of an ancient dwelling, had Ballard actually discovered proof that the biblical story of Noah and the great flood was true?

Those villages, of course, weren’t built underwater.

So Ballard concluded that the Black Sea, as we know it, was only created some eight, that is precisely what we’re talking about with Noah’s Ark and the flood, the same area where all that happened.

And in fact, mainstream archeologists know that in the Mediterranean there are over Those cities, too, were somehow flooded the same time that the Black Sea was flooded.

Also written in the book of Genesis, the story of Noah tells how God “saw that the wickedness of man was great,” and decided to destroy all of creation.

Only Noah, his family, and the animals aboard the ark were allowed to survive and repopulate the planet.

But is this the whole story? Was Noah selected only for his virtue? Or was there another reason he was chosen to save the planet? Ancient astronaut theorists believe the Bible doesn’t tell the whole story.

In the late 1940s and early texts known as the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a cave located in what is now Israel’s West Bank.

Among the ancient writings are various stories not found in the traditional Hebrew Bible.

One such story tells of Noah and his strange, miraculous birth.

One of the Dead Sea Scrolls is called “The Lamech Scroll.”

Who or what is Lamech? Lamech was a shepherd.

And one day, Lamech’s woman was pregnant. And he said to her, “This is impossible. I was not here for months.”

But his woman with the name Bathenosh swears, “No one touched me.” But Lamech doesn’t believe his wife, Bathenosh, and he goes to his father, which was Methuselah.

And Methuselah says to Lamech, “I can’t help you. I don’t understand this. I believe your woman, Bathenosh, that nobody touched her, and I believe you. What shall I do?”

So Methuselah goes to his father, the grandfather now of Lamech. His name is Enoch.

Now Enoch tells to Methuselah that the guardians of the sky have made artificial insemination into the womb of Bathenosh, the wife.

And he should accept this child because this child will be the father of a new human generation.

And in the Bible, this is Noah.

What if, as ancient astronaut theorists believe, the story of Lamech is true and the guardians of the sky described in the story are, in fact, aliens?

Does this mean that Noah was the product of artificial insemination, a genetic experiment performed by extraterrestrials?

If so, what was the reason for the great flood? Well, the reason for the flood, and we need to understand this.

What it tells us is that Noah was pure in all of his generations.

What does that mean?

You know, why would the account, you know, specify “pure in all his generations”?

According to the Bible, God sent the flood because of man’s wickedness and corruption.

But ancient astronaut theorists believe the flood was a mean of ridding the Earth of biological imperfections. By using Noah and his family, they could repopulate the planet with a genetically superior species.

Part of this human society is, again, genetically backward, closer to the animal. What can we do? These humans were spread out over the planet.

So they said, “We have to mill them all by a great flood, and then we have to restart again.”

Another familiar element in the story of Noah involves the collection of animals brought aboard the ark.

In the Bible, God commanded Noah to collect two of every kind of living creature– animal, bird, and insect.

But many biblical scholars and theologians agree that such a task would have been both physically and biologically impossible.

Could there be another more scientific explanation?

The story of Noah’s Ark is pretty implausible if you think about it. You have two animals of each creature on planet Earth on a boat.

Not only would the boat have to be huge, but how are you going to collect every animal on the planet and put it on that ship?

So, could it be possible that Noah’s Ark was once again misunderstood technology, and Noah’s Ark was a DNA bank? Could it be a story? Could it be technology somehow gathering up all living things as in a DNA bank of some kind?

It fits together.

Hard to imagine how that would happen so far back, but if it did happen, it would need to be told as a story, and then to be told as a story, and the story of a boat works.

Perhaps this is really an extraterrestrial DNA bank as well. The extraterrestrials need plants and animals and minerals on this planet, too.

Just like when we go to Mars or something, we’ll be using what we can use on that planet. So, extraterrestrials coming here would want to do that as well.

And if they knew that some cataclysm was coming, they, too, would want to preserve certain kinds of animals and plant life and create, you know, what we think of as Noah’s Ark.

An alien DNA bank?

Is there any evidence that such a thing is even possible? In 2008, on the Arctic island of Svalbard, a vault was built to store the seeds of hundreds of thousands of plants in the event of a global catastrophe.

Elsewhere, similar efforts are reportedly underway to store animal and human DNA as well.

Cutting-edge science or merely history repeating itself? The Frozen Ark Project is a program that was initiated by the London Natural History Museum.

What they’ve done is they started to store DNA of endangered species for future generations, for preservation.

And, as of today, over a thousand species have been preserved in small little vials.

So, the question arises, could it be possible that Noah’s Ark wasn’t necessarily a boat made out of wood, but what if Noah’s Ark was some type of a DNA storage facility that was used to preserve all the species on planet Earth? If each species can be held in a tiny vile like this, then it all becomes very logical.

And, once again, we have to look at it from a perspective, “What did our ancestors try to describe? What did they witness?”

Aliens artificially inseminating humans Ancient DNA banks Could such ideas help our understanding of the Bible?

And is it possible that extraterrestrials have influenced the development of mankind? Many claim that the proof can be found in some unusual places.

For those who believe that close encounters with alien beings have helped shape Earth’s history, it is important to remember that it isn’t only ancient history that has been so influenced.

There have been literally hundreds of credible accounts of strange creatures, UFO sightings and otherworldly phenomena that took place, even in the so-called Dark Ages.

There have been sightings all over the world throughout the Middle Ages.

Stories are going from Scotland to England to Italy to the Crusades. Remember the Crusades took place over hundreds of years.

And at certain points in the battle, in some cases over Turkey, in some cases over Jerusalem, there are images captured in writing by various chroniclers talking about “a strange cloud in the sky that glowed red. A strange image coming out of a cloud in the sky.”

Why would we say this is a UFO? Because, traditionally, UFOs mask themselves by forming a cloud around themselves.

And it’s a cloud that’s going through the sky– that’s their invisibility cloak.

In his 13th century historical work titled Otto Imperialia, Gervase of Tilbury wrote about an aerial craft over the city of Bristol, England, which caught an anchor in a church steeple.

He uses specifically the term “anchor.”

Now, we don’t know what kind of anchor that is.

But a creature, a man, climbs out of this craft and tries to free the anchor from the steeple.

And all the people in the village start stoning him, thinking he’s some sort of evil demon.

But for ancient astronaut theorists, evidence of an alien presence during the Middle Ages isn’t only found in the literature.

All throughout the Middle Ages, there are some magnificent paintings, and in certain areas of the painting, there are what looks like to be UFOs.

They’re always floating up in the sky– usually above the Virgin Mary or above Jesus on the crucifix– or somewhere we have sceneries that Pict what looks like UFOs.

One fascinating painting is where Jesus sits up in the clouds with “God,” and they’re holding onto the antennae of what looks like Sputnik, and theologians say what is depicted here is nothing else but the Earth.

But why would Earth have two antennae sticking out of it? And why would it be round? Because the mainstream viewpoint at the time was that the Earth was flat.

Here are pictures of the crucifixion dated around 1350 from Kosovo. Here are, presumably, vehicles with people driving them in attendance at the crucifixion.

Could this be a crude– an attempt on the part of the artist drawing on a tradition– obviously, he wasn’t there– drawing on a tradition? Could he be reflecting the folklore? Possibly.

The people of the Middle Ages depicted devils and angels frequently, in their art.

They did not depict what we today consider aliens, specifically.

But angels are heavenly creatures that come from outside of our sphere, aren’t they? Did the medieval artists include strange creatures and flying spacecraft in their paintings because they had seen them in real life?

Or were they trying to communicate their belief that the miraculous events of the New Testament had otherworldly origins? The most famous painting that resolved any doubt in my mind depicts a UFO with its laser beam, was made by Crivelli in 1486 ‘The Annunciation to Mary.’

In medieval art, in The Annunciation, when Mary is told that she will have a child, but she will still be a virgin, and the angels tell her this, over Mary’s head is a space capsule.

But what’s a UFO, or a space capsule, doing over Mary? Maybe the artist saw it, and he’s putting it in the painting to bring together his own vision of a UFO, the Annunciation from the Bible, and the mystery of salvation that there could be a virgin birth.

According to ancient astronaut theorists, the UFO-shaped objects found in medieval paintings aren’t the only evidence of an alien presence during the era.

In his book, The Gods of Eden, author William Bramley cites private journals and other publications throughout Europe which contain accounts of cigar-shaped flying objects emitting noxious mists.

The first reports of this kind began during the mid-14th century, closely corresponding to the outbreak of the worst health epidemic in human history– the Black Plague.

The Black Plague, back in the 1300s, many have said was caused by a virus from a rodent– bitten by fleas.

This disease that wiped out 75-plus million people on the planet at the time.

But there’s another theory by a fellow by the name of William Bramley who says that the Black Plague was created by E.T.’s, that they wanted to eradicate human beings, for whatever horrible reason.

We know that plague can be spread by rodents.

But there weren’t that many rodent infestations being reported back then, at least not enough to account for all of the breakouts that we had.

So what you find in the literature from that time are numerous reports of bright lights moving through the sky, emitting gas, or what they call “mists.”

And we find them in China, you find them in Europe.

There are similar reports from the Justinian plague from earlier in history, and even later plagues, the cholera epidemics.

You find similar stories of mists that are the cause of the Plague.

We have weapons like that– biological warfare.

As for the motive as to why this happened, I can only kind of scratch my head, because, in the UFO phenomena, we see certain consistent patterns, but we don’t always understand the motive.

Italian historian Matteo Villani, who both chronicled the Black Death and died from it in the 14th century, wrote of pestilential fogs reported by travelers from Asia.

He even wrote that people were convinced they could actually see the plague coming through the streets.

But what some ancient astronaut believers find to be even stronger evidence of alien involvement, are the numerous reports of mysterious black-cloaked creatures who would appear on the outskirts of villages just before plague broke out.

Contemporary accounts describe them as having “terrifying faces” and “waving long, scythe-like objects dispensing noxious mists.” It’s the image we know today as the Grim Reaper.

These figures in black would usually appear on the outskirts of a town. They were carrying these long devices that look like scythes. These figures in black would start sweeping in the fields as though they were cutting down the wheat.

Then immediately there would be an outbreak of the plague.

Although ancient astronaut theorists are divided on Bramley’s proposal that aliens we behind the plague, his research, like the artwork of the time, has led to one important conclusion.

What is evidenced, is the fact that visitations occurred since before recorded history all the way to today.

It’s not like ancient astronauts only happened thousands of years ago, and then all of a sudden we have Roswell.

The fact alone that these visitations have been going on for all this time, thousands of years, that’s sensational.

Flying cylinders spreading plague from the sky? Black-clad aliens looking to destroy humans? But even if possible, why? And, if true, wouldn’t there continue to be evidence of even more close encounters– encounters that would take place much closer to home?

When Columbus and his men first set foot in what to the Europeans was the “New World,” the indigenous people had never encountered anyone like them.

Their skin was pale. They wore strange clothes made of bright, often shiny materials. They arrived in massive ships and had powerful weapons.

To the natives, the visitors were truly aliens from a strange, faraway world– powerful beings who might just as well have been sent from the heavens.

Columbus wrote in his journal that the inhabitants eagerly came out to see their ships, and asked them if they had come from the heavens.

And despite the fact that Columbus and his men indicated, “No, we didn’t come from the heavens,” they called out to the people still on the shore, “Come out and see the people who’ve come from the heavens.”

Certainly, it seems interesting to wonder why it is that instead of thinking that possibly they came from some other part of the sea, that they’d come from the sky.

But there is more to the story.

Less well-known is that Columbus had an alien encounter of his own, one reported in his log just days before he reached the shores of the New World.

On the 11th of October, 1492, the anxious explorer was on the deck of the Santa Maria when he saw a “light glimmering at a great distance.”

Columbus wrote:

The Admiral, standing on the quarter-deck saw a light. Calling to Pedro Gutierrez, he told him he saw a light, and bid him look that way, which he did and saw it. The Admiral again perceived it once or twice, appearing like the light of a wax candle moving up and down.

Summoning another member of the crew, the two watched as the light vanished and reappeared repeatedly.

Seeing lights in the water isn’t really an anomaly.

We all know that certain kinds of underwater life give off lights.

But this light actually traveled along with the ship.

Columbus noted in the log a glowing object rise out of the water, and head off into the atmosphere.

What did Columbus see? A phosphorescent sea creature? A hallucination? Or was it something more?

Something from out of this world? What did Columbus’ men see? What they saw was a luminous object, that upon breaking the water’s surface, became a UFO.

To UFO researchers like Bill Birnes, Columbus’ sighting is significant, not only because of when it occurred, but also because the object was spotted coming out of the sea, ruling out the possibility that what he saw was a comet or a shooting star.

What’s intriguing is that this was in what we call today the Bermuda Triangle.

The Bermuda Triangle, that area, particularly off of Bimini, the Bahamas, may in fact be– and I’m way out on a limb here– Colony headquarters underneath that.

Your UFO goes down into the water and then into a subterranean area.

What better position would be to monitor South America, Middle America, Egypt than the Caribbean? Many people believe that it’s possible that UFOs could have established bases on the seafloor.

To some extent, it’s true that we know more about the Moon or some parts of outer space than we do about the deepest parts of our own oceans.

This event is extremely important because it is the world’s first recorded event that illustrates the appearance of UFO as object emerging from the water.

If Columbus sighting was so extraordinary, why do we only find a record of it in his log? Some believe another account of this event exists in the official records of the Spanish Inquisition.

UFO researcher Maximillien De Lafayette claims that Columbus’ shipmate, Pedro Gutierrez, reported him to the Inquisition after hearing Columbus describe the lights in the sky as resembling the Jewish menorah.

When they went back to Spain, Gutierrez went directly to the infamous Inquisition.

This is the Catholic organization created by the Vatican to persecute and kill the infidels.

The infidels mean the Jews, the Muslims, and Christians who are not Catholic.

The Inquisition called him for an explanation, deposition.

“Did you say that you saw menorah? Why did you say menorah? Oh, so you are a Jew.” He said, “I’m not a Jew.” In the deposition, which is lengthy, you find more details, meticulous details of what Columbus saw above the water.

The file of the Inquisition is in the vault of the Vatican.

And good luck if you can go to the secret file of the Vatican and try to dig for a document as explosive as this one.

Secret files of the Spanish Inquisition? UFOs and alien sightings in the time of Columbus? Farfetched, perhaps.

But to proponents of ancient astronaut theory, these pre-colonial close encounters are considered commonplace events.

For them, it offers additional proof that we are not alone. They have several sightings of what we would call UFOs today along the discovery of America, during the conquest of America.

Columbus was not the only one. Also on the trip of Magellan.

Fernando De Magellan, the discoverer of the Strait, who circumnavigate the world after Columbus.

He has also sightings.

Seafarers often encounter strange lights both in the sky and below the surface of the ocean.

Skeptics argue that Columbus’ sighting, like many others, was simply a natural phenomenon.

At night, there are all kinds of things, for example, bolides.

Bolides are these very large comets, and they’re spectacular.

It’s just like this enormous bright light with a trail that just arcs through the sky.

But we can tell the difference.

When you have a meteor like that or a bolide, the characteristics are very different than the ones of genuine UFOs.

As far back as the 19th century, people have speculated about what that light could’ve been.

Explanations have centered around the possibility that it could’ve been a light or a torch being carried by an island inhabitant.

They were, in fact, more than which makes that impossible.

The other possibility is that it was a meteor traveling very close to the horizon and that the movement of the ship is actually what made the light appear to be moving up and down.

But what if conventional science is wrong, and the ancient astronaut theorists are correct?

What if Columbus, Magellan, and the early explorers really did see evidence of extraterrestrial creatures visiting our planet? What does this say about our past? Our history? And our future?

Germany, April at dawn.

The citizens of Nuremberg awoke to what was described in a local news flier as “a very frightful spectacle.” Various strange objects were spotted in the sky engaged in what appeared to be an aerial battle.

Could they have been witnessing a close encounter? They see this incredible sight as the sun is coming up.

They see what they describe as cigar-shaped objects, circles in the air, and crosses; flying crosses.

And suddenly, these shapes begin emitting other shapes.

The spheres and discs were seen for a long time, as they apparently were fighting in some kind of a battle over the city.

In fact, the battle was so evident that the people in Nuremberg were actually able to perceive which side was winning.

Some of the objects were seen to crash into the ground and disappear in a cloud of smoke or steam.

Other objects were seen to fly off and disappear in the direction of the sun.

This entire event becomes memorialized in a broadsheet.

Now a broadsheet in the 16th century was literally a newspaper.

And that broadsheet exists today in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Zurich Central Library to this day retains a copy not only of the famous woodcut that shows the 1561 sighting over Nuremberg, but also a 1566 woodcut showing a sighting from that year that was quite similar in Basel, Switzerland.

What’s fascinating is it’s a very similar event.

People saw a bunch of circles in the air.

In fact, a proliferation of circles in the air.

They didn’t necessarily interpret that as a battle in the air, but they did interpret it as some kind of heavenly sign.

The broadsheets that were distributed both in Nuremberg and in Basel five years later advised people to “repent for their sins” and interpreted these extraordinary events as signs from God.

In the old times, everything paranormal, extra, extraordinary belongs the realm of divinity, of Gods.

“God’s doing this! God is punishing us! God is blessing us! Go repent! Go to church!”

It’s interesting to read the Nuremberg description because it is written with religious iconography in mind.

They talk about crosses seen in the sky on the previous day during that sighting.

Now what we might think of as a fuselage with wings, might’ve appeared as a cross to people who saw religious symbolism constantly in their everyday life.

It’s difficult to imagine how these things might have appeared, but it’s certainly possible that if these were to appear in the sky today, we would describe them quite differently.

Could the people of Nuremberg have actually witnessed a battle between warring alien factions; an event eerily similar to the one written about in the Bhagavad Gita over 3,000 years earlier?

And if not, what else would explain the vivid accounts of luminous globes and blood-red crosses appearing in the sky? Throughout the Middle Ages, visions of strange happenings were often attributed to God or the supernatural.

But moving into what is known as the early modern period of the 17th century, people began to look more and more toward science and the stars for answers.

And with the invention of the refracting telescope in 1608, there would be more eyes trained on the stars than ever before.

Ironically, the first report of a UFO witnessed through this new device came from colonial America’s best-known Puritan minister, Cotton Mather.

There was an incredible sighting that the very famous New England preacher Cotton Mather had.

Cotton Mather said that he was looking through a telescope at the Moon, and in the telescope, he saw a flying light over the surface of the moon.

Well, how did this get recorded? By none other than NASA.

And people can find it themselves.

Go to the NASA report on lunar anomalies over 500 years, and they will find Cotton Mather’s sighting of a UFO over the surface of the Moon.

There are a vast number of natural atmospheric phenomena that can appear as bright lights in the night sky.

Certainly, uh, meteors are a possibility.

Even certain kinds of terrestrial phenomena do materialize as glowing balls of light that, seen from a distance, may appear to be a star.

And it’s incredibly difficult to judge the distance of a point source of light in the night.

So he may have thought that it was on the surface of the Moon, or-or hundreds of miles away when in reality, it could’ve been quite close to where he was.

Though it is uncertain what Cotton Mather saw, ancient astronaut theorists find it significant that a prominent religious figure would report such a sighting not as a vision from God, but as an astronomical event.

They see it as a sign, not only of the sighting’s authenticity but that views on the possibility of extraterrestrial life were starting to shift, even within the Christian church.

Cotton Mather was known as a fire and brimstone preacher.

But there’s a rational part of Cotton Mather as well because this was the very beginning; the dawn of the industrial revolution.

And in this context, people were thinking about science, they were thinking about machines, and really thinking about, could there be something in space?

Although sightings like Cotton Mather’s were still rare in the 1700s, the increasing interest in astronomy sparked a new debate over a centuries-old theory called “the plurality of worlds;” the idea that life might exist elsewhere throughout the universe.

By the end of the 18th century, the majority of people, at least of educated people, were convinced that all throughout the solar system on Jupiter, on Mars, on Saturn.

All of them had extraterrestrials.

Very possibly the Moon would have intelligent beings on it.

I once did a tally of the leading intellectuals in the of them included ideas of extraterrestrial life in their publications.

The premier 18th- century astronomer William Herschel also supported the theory that life existed on other planets.

So did Thomas Paine, one of America’s Founding Fathers, along with many religious leaders of the time.

Preachers were preaching about extraterrestrials as a proof of God’s goodness.

That’s the idea that if there is a good and beneficent God, he would populate all the planets, all the stars.

Though there was an open debate about the existence of extraterrestrial life in the often extend to the idea of aliens visiting Earth.

But in 1731, a series of sightings occurred across Europe that were so compelling; the possibility could no longer be ignored.

In modern UFO sightings, the communications about UFOs are instant; it’s on the Internet, it’s on YouTube.

But what about some of these Here’s something incredible.

In 1731 over Kilkenny, Ireland, there was a sighting of a luminous object coming out of a red cloud.

That same sighting is reported in the span of a week over the rest of Europe, particularly over Romania in Eastern Europe.

Now, here are two countries that are not communicating with each other.

Newspapers don’t go back and forth, they don’t speak the same language, there’s no radio, and there’s no television.

Yet a UFO was spotted traveling from the Irish Sea, across Europe all the way to Eastern Europe and towards Asia, and is spotted in different places as it goes.

Independent observations that don’t cross-pollinate.

Could these nearly identical reports of a strange object passing through the sky be mere coincidence? And if it was an alien craft, is it possible that earlier sightings simply weren’t reported because they were interpreted as signs from God? In colonial America, the idea that aliens were visiting Earth was gaining ground.

And in the 1800s, this controversial theory would even make its way to the White House.

The United States officially declared its independence from Great Britain in 1776, and just 14 years later, a report of the first UFO sighting in American history appeared in the newly published journals of John Winthrop, the second governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

His journals, which are now known as “A History of New England, 1630-1649,” are still considered the preeminent record for that period in American history.

When the journals were finally published in 1790, over death, they were found to contain an alarming account of a possible close encounter over Boston’s Muddy River.

One night in March of 1639, James Everall, who is described as being a “sober and discreet man,” and two of his companions, boarded a little boat in the Muddy River of Boston.

As they paddled along the river, they saw a great bright light that hovered in the sky.

As they watched, the light flared up and then contracted into what they described as the figure of a swine.

It’s difficult to imagine anybody seriously reporting a sighting of a glowing, flying pig.

Looking at the sighting, one can’t help but wonder if they were struggling to describe an oval-shaped fuselage and four short, what we might now call landing struts or landing gear, in a way that made sense in the 17th century.

Winthrop’s account states that the object moved swift as an arrow, jetting back and forth as well as up and down for two to three hours.

And when it finally disappeared, the three passengers in the boat, who had been drifting downstream the entire time, were astonished to find themselves back at the point where they began their trip.

What Winthrop describes in his journal is really difficult to explain.

Certainly, it seems hard to fathom that, for two or three hours, three men in a boat watched a bright light moving around in the sky over the city of Boston.

And it seems almost inconceivable that their boat could’ve been drawn back against the tide without their noticing it.

These type of strange and inexplicable phenomenon are now associated with the phenomena that are called “alien abduction.”

As abduction cases evolved, you heard people say all of a sudden everything around them was slowing way, way down.

And they associate the slowing way, way down with whatever this event is that we call the “human abduction syndrome.”

Could this event at Muddy River be not only North America’s first documented UFO sighting but also the first account of alien abduction?

Those who believe the account! in Winthrop’s journals was an actual alien encounter point to the last line of his report which states, “other credible persons saw the same light.”

By the time Winthrop’s history was published in 1790, the debate over the possibility of extraterrestrial life was more heated than ever before.

In fact, the question of whether life existed on other planets had become so hotly contested, it caused one of America’s Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, to be unofficially exiled to Europe.

Thomas Paine enters the extraterrestrial life debate in a very dramatic way.

He was an Englishman, but a famous American patriot.

Thomas Paine publishes a book called The Age of Reason.

And in The Age of Reason, he makes one of the most vigorous attacks on Christianity ever made.

The bottom line on it is, he says, you must believe in extraterrestrials if you know any modern astronomy. The idea of God made the entire universe going from planet to planet redeeming people is just impossible to believe.

That creates a sensation. Thousands of copies of the book were sold.

In December of 1793, Thomas Paine was arrested in France as a result of supporting a political party that was no longer in power.

When the American ambassador refused to speak on his behalf, Paine believed that George Washington had abandoned him because of his writings supporting the idea of extraterrestrial life and refuting traditional Christianity.

In 1802, he was invited back to America by the third president, Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson, an intellectual, was considered a genius by many in his time, both for his skill as a statesman and his scientific aptitude.

And some believe he was also a proponent, like his contemporaries Ben Franklin and John Adams, in the concept of the plurality of worlds.

The concept of a plurality of worlds was a very widely accepted concept in the People like John Adams, and Thomas Paine didn’t view extraterrestrial life as a possibility but rather as a matter of the fact that everybody knew to be true.

The new rationality in science changed the way that these Founding Fathers talked about religion.

And John Adams writes to him and gives him advice on how to do that hiring.

He says, “Do not hire any European professors. If you hire a European professor, they are liable to believe in Christianity, and that is a very dangerous doctrine that we should stay far away from.”

Other Founding Fathers also agreed with this view, which included a belief in the existence of life on other planets.

Benjamin Franklin wondered if there were different gods for every sun that harbored intelligent life.

Many of them felt it was clear that there were intelligent beings conceivably through the whole universe, and that the notion that God came to this planet as a person who was spit on and persecuted, simply was ridiculous.

And they rejected that long-held traditional belief, which was a very radical thing at the time.

America’s Founding Fathers defending the concept of extraterrestrial life against Christianity?

A revolutionary idea to be certain but perhaps not so revolutionary to the country’s early inhabitants, who long before claimed to have met visitors from the sky.

In northwestern New Mexico lies a vast concentration of ancient ruins known today as Chaco Canyon.

Built from sandstone blocks and timber between 900 and 1150 A.D., the 15 significant complexes of Chaco Canyon contained four-story structures with hundreds of rooms that required thousands of working hours to construct.

Until the 19th century, they were the largest buildings in North America. Chaco Canyon was a center of activity for a lot of different Indian tribes, Pueblo tribes.

Anasazi Ruins at Mesa VerdeAnasazi Ruins at Mesa Verde National Park

Archeologists, anthropologists have a lot of theories about what that was.

But what I have studied and what I can tell by just some of the chants from our own tribe, and other Pueblo tribes, is that this would’ve been a big center of activity for technological-spiritual activities.

There’s a lot of places on there that has direct bearings up into the universe. When archeologists first excavated these ruins in 1896, they marveled at their architectural precision.

But even more astonishing was the fact that many of these ancient structures– like those found in Egypt, England, and South America– suggested the inhabitants had a sophisticated knowledge of astronomy.

A number of devices designed for tracking solar events were found.

And at Fajada Butte, which sits at the entrance of the canyon, three giant slabs of rock are positioned near two spiral petroglyphs etched on a cliff wall.

During the solstice and the equinox, these rocks catch the sun in such a way as to shine daggers of light on different areas of the petroglyphs.

But why would early Native Americans spend so much time building the structures at Chaco Canyon along such precise astronomical alignments? And why build them in such a desolate area of the country?

It is one of those sites which has been posing so many questions, and which science is only slowly beginning to explain.

But really, there are more questions than answers at this moment in time about Chaco Canyon.

In his 2006 book The Orion Zone, archaeo-astronomer Gary David proposed that the geographical layout of Hopi ruins in the American Southwest precisely mirrors the star patterns of a number of constellations.

When you look at where the ancestral Pueblan major ceremonial sites are actually located, Gary David has identified that when you just map these, you actually find that they depict constellations, specifically, Orion is very important.

Orion’s Belt points to the brightest star in the sky– Sirius.

If one looks at the Hopi mesas as the stars of Orion’s Belt, they also point to an important location– Chaco Canyon.

But why Orion? And could it be merely a coincidence that this constellation pattern has been found at other important sites around the world, and always with the belt pointing towards a place of significance? Ancient astronaut theorists have discovered the constellation of Orion lining up with the Mayan complexes along The Street of the Dead in Mexico City.

And here, Orion’s Belt points to Cholula, the largest pyramid in the world.

They also find it at the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, with the belt pointing toward the city of Heliopolis; a place of worship for ancient Egyptians.

The one thing we know about Orion’s Belt is that this is a theme which is recurring in Mayan mythology.

It’s also actually a theme which is occurring in Egyptian mythology.

Orion’s Belt and the stars around it were seen as the heart of creation; it is where everything began.

Hopi and OrionLike many other ancient civilizations, the Hopi too considered Orion to be of great importance.

And it’s probably not coincidental that the Hopis see the place where they are living as the heart of the world.

These are ancient people. All they had to go by were the stars.

And so, they believed– as astrologists believe today– that the stars have certain powers over what goes on on planet Earth.

According to their legends, the Hopi believe there were three worlds that preceded the one we are in today.

Each of those worlds was wiped out when guardians of the sky called to the Creator to tell him that his finest creation, humans, were no longer living according to his plan.

And they called to him by setting off a warning through the Earth’s axis, a vibration strong enough to shift the balance of the planet.

Is it possible the structures at Chaco Canyon were built along precise celestial alignments so that the Hopi could predict the periods of Earth’s devastation and renewal?

Could the guardians of the sky have led them here so they could monitor the position of the sun? Why in the world people settled at that location wasn’t wasn’t something that they did on their own.

There’s no running water there. There was no reason to live there. There’s no good soil.

They did that because their guardian told them to live there.

During the times of the summer and winter solstices, as well as the spring and fall equinoxes, the people at Chaco Canyon could gauge the Earth’s balance by watching the path of the sun daggers at Fajada Butte.

If the daggers did not pierce the petroglyphs at the same points as the previous year, they would know that the Earth was out of balance.

And since the Earth fell out of balance at the end of the previous three worlds, this could mean the end was coming once again.

Scientists from NASA determined the earthquake that hit Chile on February 27, 2010, shifted the Earth’s axis by three inches.

Would the ancestral Pueblo people have Se this as a sign from the guardians above?

Well, do you think that’s going to show up at Chaco Canyon on that dagger stick that comes down at the time of the solstice? Do you think the Indians were watching that?

It’s what the Hopi call Koyaanisqatsi.

We are living in Koyaanisqatsi right now. We are living a life that’s out of balance.

Could these Native American legends be more than just myth?

Is it possible that these stories, along with the ancient texts of India and the stories of the Bible, are all describing alien visitations?

For ancient astronaut theorists, the answer is yes, and the proof may lie on a small, uninhabited island in Nova Scotia, Canada.

In 1795, three Nova Scotia farm boys set out to explore nearby Oak Island after witnessing strange green lights coming from its shore in the middle of the night.

As they came to the island, they saw that there was one little, you know, pit that they thought, “Well, this is very odd,” so they started to dig in that particular spot.

They came across different platforms made out of wood, especially out of oak, and the deeper they dug, they also came across a mat made of coconut fiber, and they came across a stone slab that had very bizarre writing on it.

One thing is crystal clear: Canada does not have any coconut trees, so the mat made of coconut fiber– where did it come from? That’s a very intriguing question– how all these different levels were made.

The initial excavation stopped at a depth of feet.

But since that time, over a dozen professional excavations have been attempted and funded by everyone from actors John Wayne and Errol Flynn to Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Mining and excavation companies have dug multiple shafts surrounding the whole Money Pit with the hopes of achieving or reaching whatever is buried down there.

They’ve even tried to dig in sideways, and even that didn’t work.

Based on the findings from numerous excavations, the Money Pit contains a series of oak platforms starting at a depth of ten feet and recurring every ten feet thereafter, going at least 200 feet down.

In between these platforms are slabs of flagstone– not indigenous to the island– and layers of puddle clay.

Efforts to reach the bottom of the pit have proven so dangerous, six people have died in the attempt.

Its underground is covered with canals– flooding canals that lead seawater into the system.

Each time there seemed to be progress, underground floods in the canals would make further searches impossible.

So, this is what we know: many centuries ago, someone constructed a giant hydraulic system under this island.

It couldn’t have been pirates.

It had to be someone with great expertise in architecture and hydraulics.

We still haven’t been able to access whatever is down there because of the incredible flooding system.

These treasure hunters poured red paint into one of these shafts, and not only did it come out on one side of the island but also on the other side.

Up to three shafts have been discovered. I mean, it’s ingenious.

But who– or what– constructed this elaborately booby-trapped pit? And, perhaps more importantly, what– if anything– lies hidden at the bottom?

Some have speculated that it might be the crown jewels of England, pirate treasure, Viking hoards and even the original manuscripts of Shakespeare.

But perhaps the most audacious theory of all is that the Money Pit is the hiding place for one of the most sacred objects in the world.

There is a possibility that the Ark of the Covenant, with its contents, has been hidden on Oak Island.

An illustration of the Ark of the CovenantThe ark of the covenant.

The Ark of the Covenant? The most sacred object in all of Judeo-Christianity?

The gold chest that is supposed to contain the tablets on which the Hebrew God wrote the Ten Commandments?

Why would this religious relic be placed at the bottom of an elaborately booby-trapped pit in Northeastern Canada?

Ancient astronaut theorists believe the Ark may have been hidden because of the powers it held– powers from out of this world.

According to the ancient astronaut hypothesis, the Ark of the Covenant housed an extraterrestrial device which was given to the Israelites during their 40-year wandering through the desert.

When you go back to the biblical descriptions, it becomes a weapon. It rises up into the air. It rushes towards the enemies of Israel.

When the Philistines briefly capture it, um, they make the mistake of opening it and filing past it.

Suddenly, thousands of people start to die.

The biblical account states quite clearly that the cause of death was cancerous tumors. This is a very mysterious and puzzling thing.

What kind of object could have these almost machinelike attributes and cause deaths that sound like radiation sickness?

What powers the Ark held is the subject of wide speculation, but an even bigger mystery is what happened to the Ark and where it might be located today.

One legend says that it was taken during the Crusades by an elite band of monk-like warriors known as the Knights Templar.

The cover story– and it feels like a cover story– is that they were to protect pilgrims on the route between the coast and Jerusalem in the Holy Land.

But they don’t ever seem to have done any of that.

Um, right soon after they were founded, they took possession of the Temple Mount, uh, in Jerusalem.

And, uh, for the best part of themselves to what looked like an archaeological expedition on the Temple Mount.

And I’m pretty certain they were looking for the Ark of the Covenant.

The legend tells of the Knights taking the Ark to Scotland, where they formed an alliance with the powerful Sinclair family.

Some historians believe William Sinclair may have taken the Ark to Oak Island in Nova Scotia in the 1400s to protect it from English invasion.

Here, Sinclair and his men could have built what might be the most impenetrable vault ever made– the notorious Money Pit.

But, if so, where is the evidence? In the 1990s, some scientists were able to send cameras down into one of the shafts.

There, they discovered strange objects that had a rounded, tubular shape.

Their C-14 values were diverse, and their radiometric age ranged from very old to futuristic.

Now, that is basically impossible.

However, there is some chance that that effect could be caused by some kind of radioactivity.

That’s why we suspect that a nuclear reactor may have been taken there and hidden inside this ingenious hydraulic system so that it would be kept safe forever.

What would it mean if the Ark of the Covenant really was discovered at the bottom of the Money Pit? Would it provide the proof of alien intervention– the very proof that ancient astronaut theorists have been waiting for? If the Ark of the Covenant is found at the bottom of the Money Pit, well story’s over.

Perhaps.

But an even greater question persists: why?

Has mankind been helped by the intervention of beings from other worlds, as ancient astronaut proponents contend? Or was there a more ominous intention?

Could the Ark, if discovered, be a sort of Pandora’s box that, once opened, would reveal more about our origins than we would ever want to know? As the 20th century dawned, the industrial revolution suggested that nothing conceived by man could be impossible.

We could now ride through the countryside in horseless carriages sail the seas in huge ocean liners fly through the sky in airships.

Even the idea of building rockets and flying them to the Moon, Mars and beyond seemed well within our grasp.

It was the era of science fiction writers like H.G. Wells and inventors like Einstein, Tesla, Edison, and Ford.

In 1896, there were widespread reports of strange airships hovering over various locations in the American West.

Coincidence or consequence?

There were sightings throughout history, and of course, there were a large number of sightings in the 19th century.

But it wasn’t until 1896 that there were waves of sightings.

Thousands of people in 1896 and phantom airships, the origin of which was never explained.

These reports were cataloged, discussed in newspapers. There were sightings in 1896, 1897, 1898. And in fact, we kind of know, from newspaper reports from the Southwest, that people were seeing crafts with wings.

And the Wright Brothers didn’t fly an airplane until 1903.

So what were these craft? Well, on the one hand, people were flying balloons in the 19th century.

So balloons were not high technology.

What was high technology back then was affixing a gasoline engine to the gondola of a balloon?

That whole airship mystery– my guess is that some of those were just dirigibles that people were flying around.

On the other hand, during that time, we also find reports of objects that moved really too quickly to be dirigibles.

And some were maybe too shiny really to be the types of balloons that they were making at that time.

The prevalence of these balloons powered by gasoline engines flying around in the late 1890s in the turn of the century probably opened up people’s minds to the possibility that there could be literally unidentified flying objects.

People began, to put it bluntly, looking up.

So it could be said that modern UFO history began with these mysterious airships of the 1890s.

It certainly seems possible, if we believe that the airship sightings were sightings of extraterrestrial spaceships, that perhaps the aliens were interested in human activity at the time because of the rapid increases being made in technology.

Some people have suggested that aliens have been interfering with the lives of human beings for thousands of years.

And because they were always here at significant points in human history, they introduced various kinds of technologies to spur development along a certain line.

Could the same alien presence that some believe had been visiting the Earth for centuries have been responsible for inspiring our great leap into the modern age?

Or could the increased close encounters with UFOs– which would persist through the next century– be a sign that we were in danger of going too far?

A very common idea that we have today is that, as we develop technologically, we’re going to see an increase in UFO phenomena– that UFOs are basically monitoring us.

Decades ago, we saw a lot of UFO activity around air bases, around atomic bases and also UFOs following airplanes and maybe following our aircraft.

I would say that certainly, as we keep developing, we will continue to see that monitoring aspect to the UFOs.

Especially as we continue going to space, we’re going to continue seeing more UFO activity.

Whether it’s for our benefit or not, that’s hard to say.

Our history, the history of human beings on planet Earth– whether we ourselves are the aliens seeded from another planet or that the aliens created us, as the stories of the Anunnaki say– regardless, it may be that human beings are being directed toward a certain end.

In the 20th century, the inhabitants of planet Earth were capable of blasting off and touching the stars.

We were also capable of harnessing the atom and use it to inflict the deadliest of devastations.

We would send satellites into orbit, land on the Moon and reach Mars.

But what would we find?

A barren, empty universe of dead planets or something else? In the 1960s, mainstream scientists were already exploring the question of whether or not we’re alone in the universe.

And there was only a handful of scientists who actually proposed the idea that, yes, there are other civilizations out there.

Now, fast-forward 50 years. You’d be very hard-pressed to find any scientist today saying that we’re alone in the universe.

What we’re coming up to now, in the 21st century, is going to be a redefinition. Our entire history may have to be revised, in the context of nonhuman intelligence coming and going.

And what else is out there in this incredible universe of which we humans are a part?

Perhaps the dawn of the space age was a signal to whatever or whoever was out there that, after centuries of writing on cave walls, building temples and mapping the skies, the inhabitants of planet Earth were at last ready.

Ready for their return.

Ancient Aliens: The Visitors – Part 1

Reports of UFO sightings come from all corners of the globe.

“I was taken onboard a ufo in the Mojave Desert and given I saw two great big, really bright lights hanging up in the air…”

Most believe these alien encounters are a modern phenomenon, but the fact is they have been reported for thousands of years.

MICHAEL CREMO: Practically every human civilization have been in touch with extraterrestrial beings.

GIORGIO TSOUKALOS: In India, Israel.

DAVID CHILDRESS: The Mayans and the Aztecs.

LINDA HOWE: The idea that there was one or more non-human groups inspiring us is the truth. Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. But what if it were true? Did ancient aliens really help to shape our history? And if so, where did they come from? And just who were the visitors?

Roswell, New Mexico.

A newspaper report about the Roswell UFO crash.

This sleepy town in America’s Southwest was once best known for its large military airbase. But that changed in 1947 when a local rancher reported that a spaceship crashed on his property.

Several weeks later, the U.S.Army issued a press release confirming the existence of an alien craft. The next day, the military changed its story and announced that what they had found was a weather balloon. These conflicting reports sent shock waves around the world, and the name “Roswell” became a pop culture code word that forever links extraterrestrial visitation with enduring mystery.

NICK POPE: Speculation about why the Roswell crash would be covered up is difficult to pin down. Some people talk about this in terms of information that would be shattering to our worldview.

STEVEN GREER: Almost everyone’s heard about the so-called Roswell event, and one of the real implications of disclosure is that some of our most cherished myths about the origins of the human race and our history and archaeology would fall apart.

GEORGE NOORY: Something happened at Roswell, New Mexico a long time ago. People want the truth. I think there’s something in the human being itself that is striving, that is hungry for this knowledge in order to answer questions about our own existence. Today, public opinion polls indicate more than half the world’s population believes aliens have either come here in the past or are coming here now. But what is it exactly that makes so many people believe?

JONATHAN YOUNG: I do think looking upward makes sense. The universe is large. There are things out there we do not understand. There is probably intelligent life somewhere.

ROBERT BAUVAL: People tend to forget that we’re on a planet that’s four and a half billion years old. The presence of our civilization in that vast scale of time I mean, if I click my finger, it wouldn’t even be fast enough to say this is the time of our civilization. And to think that we’re the only ones in this vast period of time, to me, is absurd.

SARA SEAGER: Our galaxy, the Milky Way, has over 100 billion stars. And in our universe, we think there are more than 100 billion galaxies. So if every star had a planet with intelligent life, how many alien civilizations would we have?

ERICH VON DANIKEN: If you take us as the crown of creation, or the top of evolution, we look at our self as the greatest, the biggest. We say, how incredible, uh, unique we are in the whole universe. We forgot to learn modesty.

JENNIFER HELDMANN: Each step that we take makes us a little bit less special. We used to think that we were the center of the universe, as humans, and then we realized, “Oh, all right, well, that’s not true.” And But we’re at the center of the galaxy, and, like, well, all right, so we’re like two thirds of the way out in a spiral arm. And then, well, at least our sun, you know, with this No. The sun is actually in the middle, and the earth goes around it.

So earth isn’t even the center of that system, and So, the more that we learn, we sort of, you know It’s a very humbling science. When man first landed on the moon, our perspective on the universe changed forever.

Houston, uh, the Eagle has landed.

BUZZ ALDRIN: We aliens who happened to go down the ladder on July were certainly part of a magnificent race. I just don’t think people have a grasp for what energy it takes to go from one star to another. This historic event raised the question: if humans can successfully navigate in space and explore other worlds, why couldn’t beings from other parts of the universe have done the same? And might they have already come to Earth hundreds, or perhaps, thousands of years ago?

VON DANIKEN: I think human past is more fantastic than we all believe. I have come to the idea that maybe extraterrestrials were on this planet.

Cahuachi, Peru.

The settlement served as the religious and cultural capital of the Nazca people. But sometime around 500 AD, the Nazca mysteriously disappeared, leaving Cahuachi to fall into disarray. Anthropologist Ales Hrdlicka came to Cahuachi to study the ancient Nazca civilization. During a dig, he unearthed some of the most surprising and shocking artifacts he had ever seen. They were skulls with enormous, elongated craniums. Where did they come from? How did they get there? And were they human?

CHILDRESS: In Peru, we find these weird, elongated skulls. And they’re bizarre-looking. I mean, and-and these people look like aliens.

ROBERT SCHOCH: One may say, okay, aliens. But another aspect that we have to consider is that skull and cranial deformation, forming elongated heads is a practice that’s known throughout much of the ancient world. In 1870, the process of skull deformation was well chronicled by a German botanist and explorer named Georg Schweinfurth. While exploring the African Congo, he came in contact with a tribe called the Mangbetu. They routinely performed a ritual of cranial binding that allowed them to physically alter the shape of human skulls.

CHILDRESS: They took infants’ skulls and compressed them and bound them. And they forced the cranium out and elongate it. And in many cases, they doubled the size.

Elongated skulls found in Peru

SCHOCH: And a big question is why was this being done? It may have been a way to distinguish the elite, perhaps, from the everyday people.

May have been a social stratification type of issue. Something that also appeals to me is, that may have been a way to express physically and maybe try to achieve physically greater levels of consciousness or higher levels of mental ability.

TSOUKALOS: In my opinion, they did this in order to mimic the gods. And those gods were physical beings because if they were just a figment of our ancestors’ imagination, I don’t think that’s a compelling enough reason to expose your children to such a ritual to achieve that type of look. And in my opinion, these people were misinterpreted flesh-and-blood space travelers.

SCHOCH: Some people have suggested aliens had elongated skulls, and apparently, ancient peoples are mimicking those skulls. The old saying is that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Although there have been many images that attempt to depict what aliens might actually look like, one in particular has come to dominate the public perception. It, too, features an elongated cranium, and is associated with an extraterrestrial race that many refer to as the grays.

POPE: In terms of entities, one very common description are the so-called grays– three and a half, four feet tall, essentially humanoid, but, uh, very spindly with disproportionately large heads and huge black almond-shaped eyes. But would someone in a primitive society really want to replicate this look and deform their skull? Some archeologists have a different perspective. They point to artistic self- expression as an explanation of these customs.

ROBERT R.CARGILL: There are all kinds of people that either worship the body or use the body as art, be it a tattoo or a piercing of some sort, or tribes that, that put things in their ears or on their lips to try to, to try to grow parts of their body. Some societies, we know, practiced binding parts of the body, feet, or heads and try to make certain shapes, and this was done for whatever reason. We know today that this isn’t usually the most healthy thing to do, but it doesn’t mean people don’t do it. People are always trying to change their body to make it look a certain way. Whatever the explanation may be for these rituals, they are not just found in Peru and the African Congo. Skull deformation is a global phenomenon.

CHILDRESS: What’s really strange is that this is found all over the world, and this is something that archaeologists cannot easily explain because, for people on remote islands, for people in South America or Malta or in Africa to suddenly, independently do this cranial deformation like this seems incredible. I mean, this is something that had to be learned, something that was taught to them.

SCHOCH: We seem to have basic similarities, as if there was one civilization or at least one type of culture that was influencing people around the world. I find it more and more difficult to believe what I was taught as an undergraduate– that all these different cultures just coincidentally came up with the same concepts independently of each other.

Is it possible that individual societies around the world were influenced by similar events? And were they imitating real beings who visited from other planets? Some of the most compelling images of an elongated cranium can be traced to ancient Egypt and the depictions of one of its most controversial pharaohs.

Could it be that he too was mimicking the look of extraterrestrials? Or is there an even more outrageous explanation? Could he have been one of them?

Egypt.

Long before the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids or even settled along the Nile River, they spoke of an era called Tep Zepi, or the beginning of time. According to legends, Tep Zepi was when “sky-gods” descended from the stars to Earth on flying “boats,” and then turned mud and water into a new kingdom.

BAUVAL: The word “god,” according to the ancient Egyptian, is “netyro.” It means a being that came from the cosmos. They are very adamant about the fact that their gods had descended from the stars. They tell us that the god Osiris, who ruled with his consort and sister– the goddess Isis they were star gods, and in fact they identify them very clearly. Osiris was identified the constellation of Orion.

Isis was identified as the god to the star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. There’s an interesting point about this– is that within the constellation of Orion is the so-called nursery of stars. The stars in our galaxy literally were born in that zone, and it’s really peculiar that the ancient Egyptians insist that the birth of star gods are in this constellation. They truly believed– they were very adamant about this– that their origins is in the sky.

SCHOCH: Something that we see around the world with ancient civilizations is that they had incredible knowledge of the stars, of the planets, of the heavenly motions. The average person in the ancient world had way more knowledge of what’s going on in the skies than a lot of well-educated people today. As ancient Egypt grew into a great civilization, its citizens believed their pharaohs were sons of Osiris and thus, living gods. Artwork and wall carvings depicted them as perfect humans, and while the people worshipped many different gods, the pharaoh stood above them all.

This basic Egyptian religious belief remained in force for nearly a thousand years until one pharaoh changed everything. Who was this heretic? His name was Akhenaten, and in every surviving depiction, he is shown with an elongated skull. Who was he?

According to Egyptian mythology, he too was descended from the gods who arrived on Earth at the time of Tep Zepi.

But why do so many still believe he actually came from the stars? In 1352 BC, Akhenaten ascended to the throne as the tenth pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. Almost immediately, he instituted a series of radical religious changes, including a ban on references to multiple gods.

BAUVAL: It’s a rather strange thing that he would want to do that in one sweep, but he ordered all the iconography of previous gods to be removed. He only allowed one emblem, which was a sun emblem, literally a sun disk with curious arms or rays pointing down.

TSOUKALOS: Why did he do this? Because according to his writings and his poems that were written about him later on, he was visited by one of those beings that descended from the sky, who told Akhenaten: “This is the way. I am your god.”

This sun god was known as Aten. Akhenaten claimed to be a direct descendent of Aten.

BAUVAL: Akhenaten, like any other pharaoh, regarded himself to be divine. He was a god. Not only himself believed himself to be a god, but the whole nation saw him as a god. Now, the definition of a god is that he was a descendant from these celestial beings. During his fourth year as pharaoh, Akhenaten ordered the construction of a new capital city. He called it Amarna and dedicated it to the sun. Akhenaten would spend the next ten years here, during which time he instituted changes in both art and culture, including how he himself would be publicly depicted.

CARGILL: In Egyptian iconography, Egyptian pharaohs are depicted as these triangular-shaped beings– these broad, strong shoulders and these very skinny waists. Now, we look at leaders today and we know that most leaders don’t have broad shoulders and skinny waists, but it was important to depict the Egyptian kings as having broad shoulders and skinny waists– very, you know– the epitome of what a king ought to look like.

BAUVAL: That’s exactly the opposite of Akhenaten. He shows himself perhaps as he really is a rather strange look. He has a very mystical look.

SCHOCH: If we take Akhenaten’s statues, for instance, literally, he was a very strange-looking character. Sort of combined, some people would say, feminine aspects with masculine aspects, may have had an elongated skull.

CARGILL: The change in royal iconography of Akhenaten showed him as he probably really was, with a misshapen head, with a potbelly, with a sunken chest, as opposed to the idealized iconography of traditional Egyptian artists that showed this big, strong pharaoh.

Akhenaten’s wife Queen Nefertiti and their children were also depicted as having elongated skulls. So why were Akhenaten’s and Nefertiti’s heads deformed?

Did they suffer from a genetic abnormality or did they deliberately alter their shape?

Some believe there could be yet another explanation behind their strange, otherworldly appearance.

CHILDRESS: They look like they’re different than other human beings.

TSOUKALOS: Is it possible that Akhenaten might have been an extraterrestrial hybrid?

CARGILL: Ancient alien enthusiasts look at Pharaoh Akhenaten of Egypt and say, “Ah, look at that long head. That looks like an alien gray. That looks like some kind of something that’s nonhuman, some hybrid between something else and something human.

Must be evidence of alien interference, alien reproduction with humans. Something like that.”

BETTY ANN BROWN: I’ve been to Egypt, and one of the most stunning things about seeing the archeological remains of ancient Egypt is that one unique pharaoh, Akhenaten.

TSOUKALOS: I mean, he’s got a very narrow, pointy face, high cheekbones, and a very elongated cranium.

CHILDRESS: The idea that they were either looking like extraterrestrials or perhaps had extraterrestrial DNA in them is a credible idea. Akhenaten ruled for 17 years. After his reign, Amarna was abandoned, and temples to the sun were destroyed. Images of Akhenaten were deliberately defaced.

Ancient Egypt swiftly returned to its old ways, worshipping many gods. Was this a rejection of Akhenaten’s radical religious belief system, or a cover-up of his alien identity?

BAUVAL: There’s been a lot of theories about why. Um, if I mean, the most extreme is that he somehow had some sort of extraterrestrial connection.

If one accepts that conclusion, then it would explain why he was literally put off the reign and, some say, put to death. Some Egyptologists believe Akhenaten was forced to abdicate and flee from Egypt with a group of his loyal followers.

In 1907, the actual body of Akhenaten was discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings by a British archeologist named Edward Ayrton. After unearthing Akhenaten’s mummified remains, he was able to confirm that, indeed, the ancient pharaoh’s skull was misshapen and elongated.

CARGILL: Some scholars argue that he suffered from some kind of physical abnormality; he suffered from a disorder that caused his face to appear to be long, or his head actually was longer. I think with Akhenaten we’re dealing with a physical deformation that wasn’t They just depicted him as he was: potbelly, sunken chest, long head. Akhenaten was succeeded by his son, Tutankhamen, who became the most renowned pharaoh of all time.

When his tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, Tutankhamen was also found to have an elongated skull.

Could he have inherited alien genes from his father?

Today, much of Akhenaten’s life still remains a mystery. Did he really change Egypt’s entire belief system because, as some suggest, he was a celestial being?

If that’s true, might there be evidence of similar entities coming to Earth?

Perhaps more clues can be found thousands of miles away on the other side of the African continent.

Deep in a remote valley live the Dogon people, who are the descendants of a nomadic tribe that settled here around 1000 AD. Just like Akhenaten’s followers, the Dogon had been forced to leave Egypt because of religious persecution.

SCHOCH: The Dogon claim a very long and ancient tradition, and in my opinion maintain some of the ancient Egyptian traditions and myths that have been carried on right into the present age. Parts of ancient Egypt may not have died. They were carried on, to this day, among the Dogon. But what exactly are their beliefs?

Dogon mythology holds that the sky god Amma created the first living creature known as Nommo. The legend also says that shortly after his creation, Nommo multiplied into several parts, one of which rebelled against Amma. Amma responded by destroying him and scattering his ashes throughout the world.

PETER FIEBAG (translated): According to the Dogons’ myths, a god gave them this knowledge. He descended from the sky in an arc, surfing on fire, landing in a storm.

TSOUKALOS: Still today, the Dogon celebrates a festival in the honor of Nommo and that visitation that occurred in the remote past. How do we know this? For this festival, they have wooden masks that date back to a very long time ago, when this festival began.

FIEBAG (translated): Dogon masks tell the mystic stories of their ancestors. This is a sculpture of the creator. They call him Amma. He is embracing the universe. This is how they pass on information from generation to generation, by stories carved in masks. But could Nommo have been a real person?

Some see eerie similarities between the Dogons’ legend and the story of the mysterious Pharaoh Akhenaten. Akhenaten believed he was directly descended from the sun god Aten. Nommo was said to have been created by the sky deity, Amma.

Is it a coincidence that both cultures, although thousands of miles apart, shared mythical tales of beings coming from the skies? And both Nommo and Akhenaten were depicted with elongated heads.

Is it possible that these legends were based on real events?

FIEBAG (translated): The Dogons dwell in the central plateau region of Bandiagara.Their knowledge is centuries old, and their priests have been sharing it with chosen individuals only. In the 1920s, French anthropologist Grialue and ethnologist Dieterle visited the tribe and were invited to share their secrets.

But one secret stood out: the Dogon claimed that their god Amma came from a specific star in the Sirius constellation, the same place where the ancient Egyptians believed their god Osiris was born. This star, which modern astronomers refer to as Sirius B, the Dogon called Po Tolo. But what baffles experts is that the star is so far from Earth, it’s impossible to see with the naked eye.

BAUVAL: I was very intrigued by this, by the way. I mean, the Dogons should not have known about the existence of this star. Sirius is the second nearest star from our solar system. It’s eight light-years away. In fact, it’s not even visible with standard telescopes. It was first seen, literally seen, and photographed in the

TSOUKALOS: Modern science has corroborated that Sirius B does indeed exist. Problem is, the Dogon knew about this before modern science corroborated it. I mean, that’s spooky. Measurements taken with the Hubble telescope in B is what’s known as a white dwarf– or a partially rnt-out star with extremely dense mass. Although it is smaller in size than Earth, it’s estimated to weigh eight times as much as our sun. But how did the Dogon acquire this ancient knowledge of astronomy that seems to be centuries more advanced than that of modern science?

SEAGER: The mystery is, how did this story get passed on down generations if the story came from a time before astronomers knew there was a companion star to Sirius which can’t be seen with the human eye?

FIEBAG (translated): This is the Dogon symbol for Sirius. When you move it around, you can see an orbit around the center marked by Sirius A.Sirius B circles around it, so it is a circular system. This sign is practically an astronomic model that the Dogons could not have invented because only Sirius A is visible, and Sirius B and C are invisible.

However, their description of the orbit is correct. One assumption is that this god, Nommo, who brought them this knowledge, could have been an extraterrestrial intelligence.

Since the early 20th century, the tribe has been routinely studied and researched by anthropologists. This has led many modern historians to claim that the Dogon must have learned about astronomy from Westerners.

CARGILL: The Dogon’s mythology is so fluid that when science confirms something that they might have believed in antiquity, it might have just been sheer coincidence, or it could have been a conflation. That is, they heard Because it’s an oral culture, and because the mythology is so fluid, they heard something that someone said about this star in relation to another star, and they just grafted that in to their mythology. They grafted that into their religion. And then when some reporter, some subsequent reporter comes along and says, “What do you believe? ,” they say, “Well, we’ve thought this for millions of years.”

TSOUKALOS: When critics suggest that this knowledge was given to them by modern ethnologists, that’s simply incorrect because we know that the story goes back hundreds of years earlier than any modern ethnologist ever went there.

FIEBAG (translated): If it were ever proven that all this information is exactly correct, including the parts that are still being studied by astronomers, this would mean that the earth had visitors from outer space in prehistoric times.

BAUVAL: Either they inherited that knowledge, and the question is, from where? From a previous civilization, or from some sort of extraterrestrial civilization? Or it’s a coincidence. In my view, it is not a coincidence.

If the Dogon people really possessed this advanced astronomical knowledge, were their legends based on real events? The ancient Egyptians and Dogon were far from alone in their belief in gods or mystical beings that came from the sky.

Is there an explanation for similar myths shared by ancient cultures all around the world? And what does that reveal as to who these visitors may be? Perhaps the answer can be found, not in northern Africa, but here in the rocks and canyons of the American Southwest.

Who Are The Mysterious Shadow People?

Are Shadow People beings from another dimension? Ghosts? Aliens? Demons? Astral Bodies? Take your pick and let us know what you think. 

Have you ever heard about the so-called Shadow People?

These mysterious creatures have been referred to by those who claim to have seen them as either interdimensional beings, ghosts, time travelers and even possibly aliens.

People who claimed to have seen them aren’t sure what they had seen.

In fact, numerous descriptions of the shadow people suggest that they come out of nowhere.

While you are sitting there watching TV, you notice a strange movement across the room. It appeared dark and shadowy, but there was nothing there, you are alone. Is it your mind playing tricks on you? Or is it your imagination running wild? You doubt yourself until you it happens again.

It gives you goosebumps.

You are unsure as to what you had witnessed, and you start to ask yourself, sh*t, are ghosts real?

The Shadow People, how do you describe what you cannot accurately see?

The aspect of these beings is usually the body of a creature of great height, capable of scurrying at great speed through the rooms or even trespassing walls.

These sightings seem to occur randomly, as people read, watched television or did any other day-to-day activity in their homes.

The silhouettes passed quickly, barely in a split second to disappear without being fully seen.

On numerous occasions, people who claimed to have seen these mysterious shadows say had seen an arm, a leg or even a pair of eyes, especially at night.

While they slept, strange shadows burst into their rooms, causing intense terror.  The sightings made people question their sanity.

People can’t agree unanimously as to what they look like, although they are generally described as lacking in mass.

However, their specific nature varies from two-dimensional (as a shadow) to vaporous or distorted.

Their movement is sometimes reported as very fast and without order, or “shaky,” in the sense that they first seem to move like a fluid (thick, similar to jelly instead of water), and quickly move elsewhere, almost as if they were reporting.

The only thing that people do agree on is that these mysterious shapes appear at the edge of the field of vision, and they disintegrate or move to the walls once they are seen, usually in a second.

Although, many reports that shadow people appear at the center of their vision, appearing very close to them or standing for several seconds before disappearing.

Those who thought that shadow people are the result of modern folklore are wrong. In fact, there are a number of religions and legends that describe these mysterious beings. In the past, they were described as shades of the underworld, lost souls, while in modern times people are usually more inclined to explain them as interdimensional beings that ripped through our reality.

Scientists have tried attributing the so-called shadow people apparitions to several physiological and psychological conditions which may result in people actually experiencing shadows come to life.

Some experts have said that people who suffer from sleep paralysis may perceive a “shadowy or indistinct shape” approaching them when they lay awake paralyzed and become increasingly alarmed. Neuroscientists Baland Jalal and V.S. Ramachandran have recently proposed neurological theories for why people hallucinate shadow figures during sleep paralysis.

Sleep deprivation is also usually connected to sightings of shadow people.

However, not many people are convinced that science can explain these beings, arguing that it goes beyond our understanding of space and time.

An interesting theory suggests that the so-called shadow people are actually Astral bodies. The theory indicates that shadows or ‘essences’ are actually people who are having an out-of-body experience.

According to Jerry Gross, an author, lecturer, and teacher of astral travel, we all travel out of the body when we are asleep. Perhaps, this theory says, we are seeing the ephemeral astral bodies of these twilight travelers.

Others ay that shadow-people are in fact aliens. Curiously, those who have claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrial beings often claim that their abductors—the aliens—had the ability to move through walls and closed doors, and they could appear on one place and disappear in a second. Those who have seen shadow people often make the same claims.

Some also say that shadow people are time travelers and what people are seeing are in fact glimpses of an alternate timeline.

Those who believe in ghost stories would say that shadow people are in act ghosts. However, those who have seen the shadow people claim that they are different than ghosts. While ghosts are misty white, with a cloud-like form and a human form, the shadow people are dark, shadowy creatures.

And while the exact nature of the shadow people remains a mystery, skeptics argue that they are the result of an overactive imagination.

Skeptics argue that our mind plays tricks on us. It makes our eyes see things that aren’t usually there. Our mind causes us to hallucinate, creating illusions next to us that seem very real.

Unfortunately, there is no way to prove–or disprove for that matter– theories about shadow people and their sightings, which occur quickly and without warning.

Furthermore, since science finds it practically impossible to study this type of supernatural phenomena, nor do scientists seem particularly inclined to do so, all we can do is document the countless personal experiences and try to understand, as much as possible, what people who have claimed to have seen these beings, actually witnessed.

Maybe the existence of shadow people is something that can easily be explained, although their existence may also prove that there are things in our world which we have yet to discover and understand.




Documentary About Bob Lazar, The Area 51 Whistleblower, To Premiere On TV

Bob Lazar is best known as the man who, in the late 1980s, revealed the secrets about the infamous top-secret government facility Area 51.

He claimed to have been a scientist hired by the government for the complex task of reverse engineering alien technology that the government recovered from UFO crash sites.

Bob Lazar says he was initially introduced to work in a military facility called S-4 (Sector Four) by Edward Teller.

Their tasks consisted of scientific research on the propulsion system of one of the flying saucers recovered by the military, as a general part of the ongoing reverse engineering project by the government.

From Lazar’s first observations in S-4, he thought that the flying saucers were secret man-made planes, whose test flights must have been responsible for many UFO reports.

Gradually, and because of the multiple documents he had carefully read, and because of everything he had been shown in S-4, Lazar came to the conclusion that the dishes were of extraterrestrial origin.

According to Lazar, he participated in a number of meetings in which the government acknowledged the historical participation of extraterrestrial civilizations with planet Earth, spanning back at least 10,000 years back.

Lazar claims the extraterrestrial beings (Grays) come from the binary star system Zeta Reticuli.

During the 1990s, Lazar’s words gained great interest in the media and became an important testimonial argument to hold that the US government is hiding alien technology.

This led Area 51 to acquire a legendary aura that it still retains to this day, as well as its characteristic of being one of the most famous secret facilities on Earth.

Curiously, for decades after Lazar’s claims became a well-known detail, the government denied the existence of Area 51, until finally recognizing its existence some for years ago.

Now, a filmmaker is set to launch a documentary about Bob Lazar, promising to reveal important details not only about area 51 but alien life and UFOs in general.

This sneak peak’s description reads: Area 51, flying saucers from another world – and the program to create a fierce technology. Bob Lazar has lived a wildlife. He remains the singular most famous and controversial name in the world of UFOs. The reason you know about Area 51 is that Lazar came forward and told you about it. His disclosures have turned his life upside-down and he has tried to stay out of the spotlight. For this reason, he has never let any filmmaker into the private world of his daily life – that is – until now. Corbell’s film will explore Lazar’s claims through the lens of thirty years – providing rare and never before revealed footage – guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate.

Ancient Aliens—The Evidence: Part 2

Click here to read part one.

Ancient man’s method of moving large blocks is only one mystery. Another surrounds the techniques of their stonemasons. How did prehistoric civilizations cut such intricately designed patterns in solid granite?

In Palm Springs California, master stonemason and sculptor Roger Hopkins uses a variety of advanced tools to cut and shape hard stones. Powered implements such as diamond-tipped wires and polishers enable him to fashion works of art out of huge granite blocks obtained from nearby quarries.

Yet even with these high-tech tools, Hopkins cannot replicate what ancient civilizations accomplished thousands of years ago. Could these advanced engineering methods be the smoking gun that proves humans had help from alien beings? The precision on some of the work that I’ve seen is just incredible.

It’s possible to do by hand, but it would take an incredible amount of time. Plus, you have to have years of experience to be able to pull it off. In my opinion, the most tangible pieces of evidence that we have regarding possible extraterrestrial technology is when we look at the ancient stone-cutting techniques. Because in some instances, we ourselves today could not replicate what our ancestors allegedly accomplished with stone masonry.

Puma Punku is a large temple complex located on a high plateau in Bolivia. Mainstream archaeologists date the site from approximately The people who lived here had neither a written language nor the wheel, yet somehow they built one of the world’s most complex structures. Ancient alien theorists view Puma Punku as clear proof of extraterrestrial influence. The ruins we find at Puma Punku are simply extraordinary.

Puma Punku defies logic.

The interest of Puma Punku is not so much that the individual stones sorted together perfectly, but the fact that the stones, as such, are of such tremendous design that it requires concepts of mathematics which are far beyond anything we are actually using right now.

Yet somehow in the past, somebody has made that for a specific purpose, and in a way which even computer programs today would kind of go, how is this possible? In the highlands of Bolivia, Puma Punku– some of these blocks are over What can you tell us about this? Boy, they had their stone-cutting abilities pretty well fine-tuned for 5,000 years old. I mean, it’s almost unbelievable.

But these cutting planes that they have on here are very impressive. And some of the incised cuts– see, like in here, all these interior cuts– very hard to do.

I mean, it would be difficult for us with our equipment to get that kind of precision. The inside boxes are a hell of a piece of work.

I mean, if we were to do something like that today, we’d use– what they have, these computer-driven CNC machines which have diamond tips.

And you have a template that, you know, the computer follows. Even then, it may not come out as perfect.

Because even though you can tell that obviously, this piece broke off. Nowhere in here can you see any imperfection. When you’re there, if you go with your finger over these edges, and you put a little pressure on your fingertip, you can cut yourself. This is how sharp the edges are. But where could the ancient peoples have developed such technology? Is it really possible that extraterrestrial visitors provided different construction methods and tools? When I saw these blocks, I didn’t really think that they were cut.

Image Credit

The first thing really that I thought of was this appears very similar to Frank Lloyd Wright’s textile block system of construction, which he used in his California houses in the early 1920’s. Now what he did was– he took concrete, poured it into molds.

There actually are ancient Incan legends that suggest that they had the capability of softening the stone. At Sacsayhuaman, for example, we find these gigantic stone blocks, gigantic stone walls, where it looks as if those stones were molten, put into place, and then the stone hardened again.

Several hundred miles north of Puma Punku, Machu Picchu sits high atop the Peruvian Andes. Built by the Incas in the 15th century, this stone citadel was suddenly abandoned about 100 years later.

Like Puma Punku, Machu Picchu also has signs of advanced engineering and possibly, molded stones. I can’t help but think that whoever was behind this thought the process through from beginning to end.

They didn’t quarry the rock, and then decide, “How the heck are we gonna transport this?” They knew from beginning to end what needed to be done with whatever techniques and technology they were going to use, so that this was no big deal.

In industry today, there’s a kind of an adage: Keep it simple, stupid. Based on his experience, Mike Dunn believes the simplest way to build the great walls of Machu Picchu would have been to transport small rocks to the site, then melt them, and use molds to fashion exact size and shape needed.

That would solve a lot of difficulties of constructing this wall. First, you have your shapes, all the same size, each shape. So you’re guaranteed that they would fit together as opposed to being cut by different artisans.

Melting the rocks, and then pouring them into place would take and an incredible amount of heat just to spool off pieces of stone. I have a stone torch which I use for sometimes shaping granite. And, I mean, it generates a temperature of in excess of When we look back at the ancients, and we see a technology that they couldn’t possibly know, there’s only two possibilities then: either God did it– which we really don’t think happened– or some high-tech civilization from another planet came and showed them how to do it, then took their materials and tools and went back home.

The idea behind that is that none of these ancient monuments were constructed or manufactured by extraterrestrials.

It was us humans who built it with extraterrestrial technology. It’s entirely possible that there were visitations, that they pointed out ways to do things, and that they wanted to leave some kind of a record.

I mean, if you’re gonna leave a permanent record, the only way you can do that is in stone. But if advanced beings from another planet really did bring their technology to Earth, might the ancient astronauts have left one of their tools behind? The methods used to build huge megalithic structures such as Puma Punku and the pyramids of Egypt remain a mystery.

But what about the tools used to build them? Where are they? And might they provide a clue as to how these enormous stone structures were created? A lot of the real ancient mysterious work was done at a time when there was no steel, and the copper they had was, yeah, they could harden it by cold-hammering it, but still, it wouldn’t make a dent in rocks like basalt and granite.

So they would have had to use, you know, much more laborious techniques othey had some sort of advanced technology which escapes me, and I’ve been in the business 40 years.

The tools and machines must have been equal to the task of actually building the pyramids, crafting those statues to such a high order of precision crafting those boxes to a modern-day precision that you find in our inspection lab.

And the big question: Where are the tools? In the late 19th century, British archaeologist Sir Flinders Petrie scoured Egypt, looking not for the biggest items, but the smallest. Petrie was absolutely fascinated by the technical achievements of the Egyptians, particularly the early Egyptians. He constantly was looking for how they made things, how they developed things, how they continued to sort of basically perfect their tools.

We’re normally taught that the ancient Egyptians had simple tools, and what Petrie brought out is information that seems to actually argue against that notion. This is an example of a drill hole. You can see the very fine lines on it. You can see the technology that’s made to use it. You can see how it’s a perfect hole almost all the way through, but it tapers at one end. This is a fragment of a diorite bowl.

It’s one of the hardest substances, and you can see on this, on this fragment that there’s a, a lathe mark, which is really interesting that they managed to make such a mark in such a hard material.

Among all the tools discovered by Petrie, however, one stood out from all the rest. While working inside the Great Pyramid, Petrie stumbled across a tubular drill made of granite. Tubular drills amongst the ancient Egyptians were actually fairly common. I mean, Petrie found quite a few of them.

The interesting thing about the one that he found in Giza is that it’s such hard stone that was so carefully carved, precisely grooved. As you can see, it’s got very, very fine markings on it, basically lines, literally a couple of millimeters apart.

You can see it goes all the way round very, very accurately, hardly any waves at all. He was absolutely amazed by this. He kept returning to it throughout his life. His theory was that the Egyptians must have had access to diamonds or some kind of jewel that would have cut it. The interesting thing about Petrie’s theory about how these drill lines are made was that he never discovered any diamonds in ancient Egypt.

So where were they? Where did they go? We don’t know.

If the ancient Egyptians didn’t possess diamonds, how were the precision grooves cut onto the granite drill? Did Petrie accidentally discover a tool made by extraterrestrials? Machinist expert Chris Dunn attempted to answer this question by creating his own granite drill using the known tools and techniques of the ancient Egyptians.

In order to test the Egyptologist theory about how the ancient Egyptians drilled into granite, I took a tube and I fixed a crank on it, and actually used sand and silicon carbide, and after many hours of turning and drilling into this piece of granite, finally got deep enough that I could actually pop a core out.

And the reason for that was to actually look at the surface, not just of the whole, but of the core.

The next step was to use a high-tech industrial microscope to compare his drill core to a latex copy of the one at the Petrie Museum.

We have under the microscope the core that we drilled with the copper tube and sand.

And as you can see, the surface of the core, the striations are not very clear.

There’s nothing really distinctive in terms of the feed of the tool marks using sand and, and copper.

Now bring in the latex that they took of the core in the Petrie Museum, and we see something totally different.

The striations are very clear and they’re quite deep.

The devil is actually in the details, and the details of this particular artifact are what I consider to be a smoking gun in terms of what level of technology we give the ancient Egyptians credit for.

Intrigued by his discovery, Chris Dunn performed other experiments using his precision instruments.

As you can see, this is an inspection surface plate, probably ground to within 2/10,000 of an inch.

That is one-tenth the thickness of a human hair.

Now, I was really amazed when I went inside the Serapeum and put these gauges up against the surface, and found them to be within what I consider to be the tolerance of these particular gauges.

If you would put a piece of paper under one edge of that blade– just a piece of paper– you begin to see that there was would be light leaking through.

And so, the precision on the inside of the granite boxes in the Serapeum are, I would say, within 2/1,000 of an inch, which is incredible because those tolerances can’t just appear by accident.

It was very shocking. It was astounding to me to go to Egypt and, uh, go into a facility that was supposedly same kind of precision. Dunn was amazed.

Dunn had seen evidence of the carvings on granite done in Egypt, and they did they did it with little shards of, uh of quartz. He believes they would have just scratched away the stone with that.

That that’s one possibility, but I mean, that’s a heck of a lot of work to do that. I mean, we’re talking, somebody would devote years to doing something like that.

But precision-cut stone monuments are not the only enduring Middle Eastern mysteries. Engineering experts have also examined the Bible story of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt.

Just how did they survive for 40 years in the desert? Could they have possessed intricate machines with extraordinary abilities, used not for building, but for man’s own survival? In the Hebrew Bible, the Book of Exodus describes how the Jewish people suffered as slaves living in Egypt.

Then sometime in the 14th century BC, the ruling pharaoh feared their growing numbers and ordered the killing of all first-born Jews living in Egypt.

In an effort to save her son, one mother put her child in a small basket and set him adrift on the Nile River. That child was found by the pharaoh’s family, who named him Moses and raised him as their own. As an adult, Moses discovered his true identity and demanded that the Pharaoh free the Jews. When the pharaoh rejected him, Moses helped the Jews escape from Egypt.

Historians believe that Moses and his people crossed the Red Sea and made their way into the Sinai Desert.

According to the ancient text, God grew angry at the Jews for idol-worshipping and forced them to wander the desert aimlessly for 40 years before allowing them to enter Israel.

During this time, the Bible says the Israelites survived by eating a single food source: Manna. But what is manna? A naturally abundant food provided by God or, as some believe? In the Bible, it explains how the Israelites got from Egypt, where they’d been slaves, to the Promised Land.

They had to cross the Sinai Desert. And inevitably, given that there was a lot of Israelites and very little growing, as it was a desert, they ran short on supplies.

God stepped in at this point and sent manna from heaven.

This took the form of some kind of seeds that rained down upon the desert. And then they were collected the next day. And they provided food for the Israelites, except Friday, when there was a double portion, because on Saturday, being the Sabbath, it didn’t fall. While the Hebrew Bible fails to give a clear description of manna, another ancient Jewish text provides an alternative clue.

The Zohar is a collection of spiritual commentaries and interpretations of the Torah and is central to the mystical Kabbalah belief written in the 13th century.

The Zohar describes what is called the Ancient of Days as providing the manna, but what was this Ancient of Days? A man, a god or something else? The text speaks of different-sized brains, different-sized faces that were connected with different tubes and different light sources. Theologians have suggested that this is a description of God.

However, when looked at from a modern perspective, what is described in the Zohar isn’t necessarily a god figure, but rather a type of machine.

Intrigued by this information, two electrical engineers, George Sassoon and Rodney Dale, used the anatomical descriptions of the Ancient of Days to design what they called a manna machine.

This really is-is the key diagram of the manna machine, as we built it up from the text. For instance, one here is the mouth, but it’s actually the air intake, which carries what is described as the breath of life.

The air goes up this tube here, which is described as the brain of the Ancient One but is actually a dew still. So that although we’re talking about the great sea and the hairs of the beard and so on, at the same time, we were able to work out their relative positions and build out the specification of the machine, and find that we had something that was biochemically viable.

The machine took in the moist morning air and condensed it in the part of the machine that looked like a Plexiglas dome.

From there, it mixed with an algae culture. The algae culture was treated with energy, such as a strong laser light, in order to speed the growth. Of course, it needed energy for cultivating the algae. And this was produced, we postulate, in a small nuclear reactor, which would produce both heat and light as required. The manna machine was a very dangerous device. We suspect that the reactor that powered the machine was transported in the Ark of the Covenant. We have multiple references in the Bible that whoever came close to the Ark of the Covenant and didn’t know how to operate it was smitten to death.

And sometimes people, after they encountered the Ark, started to lose their nails and started to lose their hair. So we have evidence of some type of radiation poisoning which was in direct correlation with the Ark of the Covenant.

And so, the Ark of the Covenant housed an extraterrestrial device which was given to the Israelites during their 40-year wandering through the desert. The manna machine is believed to have supplied a highly nutritious form of green algae, or chlorella, as its food source. It’s yet another theory supported by modern science.

We found that work in the field of space travel had already been done, where the green algae– chlorella– was bred in tanks and fed to people living in a closed environment and kept them alive.

Research studies done by NASA in the 1960’s and life could be sustained for extended periods of time by consuming chlorella algae and nothing else. If it’s possible for astronauts to survive on algae, could the Israelites have done the same? The manna machine was a sensitive device. In order to function properly, it had to be cleaned once a week.

On that day the machine was taken apart and cleaned. So it’s possible that the Sabbath we have today actually originated from cleaning this machine.

One theory that one could put forward of course is that the machine, although they knew how to maintain it and make it produce the manna, that it did after a time pack up, not work anymore. And that was why they came out of the desert.

But if the Israelites’ survival depended upon the manna machine, where did they get it? Some believe they had stolen it from the Egyptians prior to their exodus.

Others suspect extraterrestrials gave it to them as a humanitarian gesture, to prevent their starvation in the desert.

Either way, the answer, like the Ark of the Covenant, seems lost to history. Today, scientists have successfully pioneered a process that produces a substance high in protein by means of solar energy, water vapor, and chlorella algae.

Could this be a duplication of alien technology from thousands of years ago? They actually built a machine, a machine based on algae culture producing some type of super food.

And we can find a similar type of technology described in the Zohar. Is history repeating itself? One of the big questions is “where did the machine come from?” And I suppose there are two answers to that.

Either it was built on Earth, which is a theory I can’t really subscribe to. The other question, of course, is that it might have come from outer space somewhere. Now, that’s quite a big leap of imagination, but of course, the interesting part is that it actually produces food as is used by spacecraft. If the ancient world contained manna machines, giant mega-saws, and sophisticated aircraft, what was the energy source for all of this technology? The answer may be hiding in plain sight.

Of all the ancient structures located around the world, perhaps none is more mysterious or as enduring as the Great Pyramid at Giza. At a height of 471 feet, the Great Pyramid stood as the tallest structure in the world until the completion of the Eiffel Tower in 1889. But while other pyramids and temples contain walls filled with hieroglyphics describing their purpose, the Great Pyramid lacks even a single marking.

What was its function? Why was it built? And what secrets remain hidden inside? Nobody has been able to explain the interior design of this pyramid. It simply doesn’t make sense, according to our logic.

You have narrow tunnels that you have to crouch. You emerge in grand galleries that are nine meters high. You have chambers that made of granite, where granite doesn’t come from in the area. You have to ship the granite by barges 600 miles away.

It’s an anonymous site.

Not a single inscription.

Not a single hieroglyph.

Not a single anything.

It’s just there.

Some people speculated that it was a temple and an initiation chamber, where people would go to the king’s chamber and become enlightened.

There are anecdotal reports about people who have been inside the pyramid and have come out absolutely shaken and– because it was haunted.

Egyptologists believe that the pyramids were built to bury the dead pharaoh.

The problem with the accepted view is the fact that not a single dead pharaoh’s body has been found inside a pyramid, even when the pyramid was completely sealed.

Not a single grave robber could have entered it.

The Egyptologists say it’s to conceal the body.

Well, why advertise it? I mean, there’s nothing more visible than a pyramid for miles.

And to this day, you would have thought, in this modern age, with all the knowledge we have, we should be able to explain this pyramid. We cannot explain this pyramid. Engineering expert Christopher Dunn has been on a personal quest to unlock the secrets of the Great Pyramid since the late 1970’s. According to him, there are specific clues in the design and construction of this mega-monument that can help answer exactly why it was built.

When you look at the Great Pyramid and look at the culture that built it, they’re brilliant, brilliant engineers. In fact, a lot of engineers say we couldn’t build the Great Pyramid today. And it was built, supposedly, And it was built to the precision of a machine.

When I started to do the research and I examined the Great Pyramid with the eye of functionality, um, it was built like a machine.

Perhaps it functioned like a machine.

The interior design of the Great Pyramid features four inclined air shafts emanating from the king’s chamber and the lower queen’s chamber.

Like the Great Pyramid itself, their presence and purpose cannot be easily explained. The difficulty of building those shafts is incredible. It’s a bit like building a chimney at an incline across a house. I mean, as a construction engineer, it’s a nightmare.

In 2002, a team of engineers and Egyptologists sent a small robot into one of the airshafts connected to the queen’s chamber. After 65 meters, a stone door blocked its path.

A hole was then drilled through it. On the other side was a small room with yet another door leading further up the shaft. Since the discovery of the door, we’ve had every university, archaeologist, anthropologist, every engineer you can think of– nobody has been able to explain the purpose of the shafts.

But were these shafts ever open? And if they were, what might they have been used for? The early explorers that went into the queen’s chamber found that the walls were coated with a layer of salt.

That kind of gelled with a theory that I had developed.

You had a dilute hydrochloric acid solution coming down one shaft and hydrated zinc coming down the other shaft and when they combined in the queen’s chamber, they created hydrogen. Hydrogen.

It is one of the most powerful energy sources in the universe. In the mid-19th century, it was hydrogen gas that helped lift some of mankind’s first airships, called zeppelins, into the sky. Today, it is used as a fuel to launch rockets into space.

And if thousands of years ago, the Great Pyramid was actually producing hydrogen, that would make it one of the earliest power plants known to man.

The Giza power plant theory is essentially the drawing of energy from the Earth through the Great Pyramid, and converting that energy into microwave energy.

So the chemicals actually come in through the shafts into the queen’s chamber, and then they combine and mix and hydrogen boils off.

The hydrogen is then lighter than air and it will flow into all the upper chambers. The energy from the earth is then vibrating the whole pyramid. The vibrations are picked up in the Grand Gallery.

So it was proposed the Grand Gallery was a resonator hall and there are 27 pairs of slots that actually go up the length of the gallery and then the resonators were mounted in there vertically.

Christopher Dunn is theorizing that with resonating galleries, the pyramid shot a microwave out of one of the shafts, and once you started up this power plant, it would have gone on for years, decades, even hundreds of years without stopping and creating the microwave.

And that was a usable energy that could be captured. Now we can speculate where it goes from there. It could be collected in the immediate vicinity or it could keep traveling off into space. We don’t know.

That’s the mystery. But if the Great Pyramid was actually a power plant producing energy, was it doing it alone, or was it part of a larger network? And are there any clues that could tell us what all of that energy was being used for? Perhaps the 20th century’s most influential inventor was a Serbian-American named Nikola Tesla.

His patents on alternating electrical currents and distribution helped establish the commercial electricity industry. He also made contributions to robotics, radar, and computer science. But while Tesla can be credited for many scientific advances, one idea that fell short was his attempt to create a wireless electrical grid. Tesla’s project was to have these towers around the United States and around the world. And they would broadcast electricity like a television station. Instead of having to string power lines all over the place, you just transmit the energy through the air or through the ground.

There were a number of demonstrations of this device for wireless power transmission during Tesla’s lifetime.

So, we know the device worked. It appears that he was using the conductivity of the ground or the air to carry the electric current.

Basically in the air, if you put enough voltage on it, you’ll get an arc across it. I mean, you see that all the time in a fluorescent light bulb. In the ground, you have water, minerals, salts that can also carry the ions along, and therefore carry the electric current.

But while Tesla’s power towers proved popular in theory, the project ended in financial failure. But could Tesla’s idea of wireless electricity have been a rediscovery of an ancient technology? I believe that what Tesla was doing was trying to recreate what was an ancient power system that was used around the world, and the way they did this was the use of obelisks.

Obelisks as monolithic, granite towers, which are one solid piece of crystal, and the obelisks themselves were cut to special sizes and tuned like a tuning fork.

Could these ancient broadcast towers really have sent electricity up into the atmosphere? And if so, how was the electricity generated? Each of these obelisks would have required some kind of generating power station similar to what we have today.

Electricity is created by rotating magnetic fields. So rotating magnetic fields generate AC power. The very first power station was built by Nikola Tesla at Niagara Falls.

You’ve got to have some sort of power that’s spinning the rotating fields, and in this case would be water.

So every obelisk would have had to have had a power station similar to like the one at Niagara Falls. It’s generating power, but the obelisk itself is putting the power into the atmosphere, making it useable.

And this is similar to Christopher Dunn’s theory of the Giza power plant because he believes that the Great Pyramid was actually sending a microwave beam to a satellite that was in orbit around the planet.

That satellite then could have been taking microwave power and then it could transmit it again, in theory, to some other location on the earth, such as, say a remote island like Easter Island or something like that.

From some of the descriptions of ancient flying machines, it’s possible that some form of power beaming might have been used. And in fact, for a lot of the schemes that you see, it actually would make a lot of sense because you could put the power beaming station on a mother-ship in orbit.

You’re just beaming energy to the vehicle, where it’s absorbed and turned into propulsion thrust. It actually makes a lot of sense because you’re taking the energy system, the power system, off of the vehicle and locating it remotely.

Electricity power tools mega-machinery And the ability to explore the heavens Have these technologies been available for just the past few centuries? Or are they of ancient origin, only recently rediscovered? Were our ancestors capable of these incredible achievements? Or might they have come from another source, one much more out of this world? Civilizations were much more advanced than we give them credit, and literally, as advanced as we are today.

In my view, we need to take this seriously simply because of the scale of the work.

We’re looking at monuments that took, perhaps, a century to build. Even today, we have difficulty in considering such a project. It just boggles the mind.

And really, to look at those artifacts and to go back in time and say, how did they do it? We are kind of cracking the lid open a little bit and looking inside to try and see just what happened in our history.

It’s a question which is a scientific question. And you constantly have to ask it. And the possible answer of have aliens visited in the past could be a potential yes. It’s a very specific reason why all of this stuff was built in stone: For posterity.

So it would last. So that a future generation would have to stumble across these monuments. We are that society who can look at these ancient monuments and finally recognize that all of this stuff was built as a message for us to see that our past is way different than what we’re being taught in school.

Copyrighting Space !

Nations, space companies, and even private citizens have big plans to colonize the Moon. But this reinvigorated focus on our nearest celestial neighbor have some worried that this mad dash could destroy historical lunar landmarks.

Yesterday, The White House issued a report calling for ways to protect Apollo-era landing sites, calling them “rich in scientific and historical significance.” Congress mandated the report in the NASA Transition Authorization Act of 2017. Damage from exhaust blasts of nearby spacecraft, biological contamination, and the obliteration of tracks in the regolith are all concerns.

“Three Apollo sites remain scientifically active and all the landing sites provide the opportunity to learn about the changes associated with long-term exposure of human-created systems in the harsh lunar environment,” the report says. “Currently, very little data exists that describe what effect temperature extremes, lunar dust, micrometeoroids, solar radiation, etc. have on such man-made material.”

THAT’S ENOUGH TO BRING FEDERAL WRATH ON ANY AMERICAN COMPANY THAT DISTURBS AN APOLLO SITE.

Between 1969 and 1972, astronauts left behind a lot of stuff, some of it experiments but mostly just things to help save weight for takeoff from the lunar surface. There are no legal definitions of “preservation” and the report relied on NASA’s Lunar Historic Site team to look at what’s there that might be worth saving. The list includes rovers, the descent and landing stages, laser ranging retroreflectors, footprints, and “trinkets” like astronaut boots, a gold olive branch, and a silicon disk “containing statements from leaders of 74 countries.”

The document also says that existing legal provisions like the 1967 Outer Space Treaty should make other nations abide by these preservation standards. “Any activities in space that could interfere with U.S. space objects—including equipment on the Moon—should include advance consultation with the United States,” the report says. “The United States continues to own and have jurisdiction over U.S. origin lunar equipment, and other states could be liable to damage to U.S. objects.”

That’s enough to bring federal wrath on any American company that disturbs an Apollo site. But the report also recommends opening dialog with other nations, while at the same time highlighting the difficulty of safeguarding the sites.

The report says that amending existing multilateral agreements or making a new one would provide explicit protections. But this may outweigh any benefits. “Some states might see a U.S.-led attempt to protect space artifacts as a subterfuge for securing indefinite rights over lunar territory,” the report says, “and perhaps even creating a mechanism to ‘plant the flag’ and claim additional territory in the future under the guise of preservation and protection of lunar sites and artifacts.”




Spaceships lined up on the side of the crater !

Did we really go to the moon? Yes, we definitely did. However, our research shows that many of the photos and video footage were faked.

“There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truth’s protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief.”

– Neil Armstrong (source)

It wasn’t long ago that the Russian government called for an international investigation into the U.S. moon landings regarding missing samples and photos not released to the public. This created a new wave of interest into what really happened when the U.S. went up there, and led some to question if they even went there at all. The topic is filled with a number of interesting facts and statements from credible people that make one thing abundantly clear: Something fishy is happening on the moon, and we’re not being told about it.

This uncertainty has been made apparent by various sources, which include multiple Apollo astronauts, academics, and high-ranking military whistleblowers, not to mention official photos taken by NASA. According to Bob Dean, a United States Army Command Sergeant Major who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst, more footage exists, erased and hidden all these years, which we have never been told about:

Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience. 

We will get into more intriguing facts later in the article. More points will be made about why so many people are starting to wonder if there is, or was, an alien presence on the moon. These points make it easier to consider the lore that surrounds the moon landing. Perhaps one of the most interesting points is what Neil Armstrong communicated to Houston when we landed on the moon.

According to multiple sources, after landing, the Apollo astronauts transmitted that they were being watched by enormous extraterrestrial vehicles.

Where Does This Claim Come From?

One source is Dr. Steven Greer, founder of The Disclosure Project and The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI). Greer was responsible for bringing forth high level military whistleblowers from all ranks to testify about the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. He’s also had high level meetings within the Pentagon about this issue, which was verified by Apollo 14 astronaut and 6th man to walk on the moon, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, in Greer’s film Sirius Disclosure.

Edgar is one of multiple NASA astronauts who have made some eye-opening comments about the extraterrestrial presence.

According to Greer, from a blog post a couple years ago (and if this link doesn’t work, you can check out a video of him speaking about the experience here):

Close friends and very close family members of both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have separately told me that indeed there were numerous, large UFOs around the crater where the Lunar Module landed and that these were seen by both Armstrong and Aldrin. I have also spoken to military officers that have seen the footage of this event- but it has never been made public. One close family member of Buzz Aldrin told me “It is not my place to out Buzz on this- someday if he can speak about it, he will…

Neil Armstrong became somewhat of a recluse after the moon landing, and rarely spoke of the historic event. His friends and family have told me that this is because he was a man of such integrity that he simply did not want to be put in a position to lie to the public about such a momentous encounter. How tragic that our heroes have been placed in this untenable situation!

When we were organizing The Disclosure Project a few years ago, I asked one of Neil Armstrong’s friends if Armstrong would come to Washington to brief members of Congress at the 1997 Congressional briefing we organized in April of that year. I was told that Armstrong wished he could –but that if he spoke about what really happened during the moon landing, that Neil Armstrong, his wife, and children would all be killed. It was put to me this bluntly.

Another source is former NASA employee Ken Johnston. Johnston was a Boeing engineer and a former fighter-jock and test pilot for Grumman Aerospace. He was also a marine and an F-4 pilot, as well as a NASA employee, working as the chief Lunar Module test pilot at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston. According to James Oberg, a U.S. space journalist, UFO skeptic, and space historian, “Johnston seems to be a sweet human being who did honorable service to his country in the military and in the Apollo program.”

Above is a picture of him wearing his gear, taken from a documentary in which he appeared that also featured Buzz Aldrin and other notable NASA colleagues. In the documentary, he reveals: “While Neil and Buzz were on the Lunar surface, Neil switched to the medical channel, and spoke directly with the chief medical officer saying, they’re here, they’re parked on the side of the crater, they’re watching us.” (Source: 34 second mark)

Johnston is referring to a story put out by former NASA employee Otto Bender. According to Dr. Michael Salla, PhD., on a post written on his website, Bender confirmed that HAM radio operators had intercepted these VHF signals that were transmitted from Apollo 11, the ones that were kept from the public.

Apparently, this is how it went:

Mission Control: What’s there ? Mission Control calling Apollo 11.

Apollo 11:  These babies are huge, sir … enormous….Oh, God, you wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other space craft out there… lined up on the far side of the crater edge… they’re on the moon watching us.

To the right you will see a picture of William Tompkins and Admiral Larry Marsh. As a teenager Tompkins had an eye for detail and loved to create Navy ship and submarine models. The Navy took interest in his capabilities and recruited him to do work on advanced technology projects. Recently, he has come forward with claims, as many others have, about clandestine Black Budget operation programs.

According to Tompkins:

The Landing Module (LEM) actually impacted the Moon surface in the Sea of Tranquility Crater, which had tremendous size vehicles parked around part of its rim. When astronaut Neil Armstrong made that First Step for Man on the Moon he looked up to the edge of the crater and said to mission control: “There are other ships here, they are enormous. The public did not hear that statement or see the massive alien starships. Armstrong panned his camera in a 360 degree motional all around the crater and the CIA then classified the information as way above top secret.

Another source for this story comes from Timothy Good, one of the world’s leading UFO researchers, who has lectured at universities, schools, and many organizations, including the Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences, the Royal Canadian Military Institute, the Royal Geographical Society, the Royal Naval Air Reserve Branch, the House of Lords All-Party UFO Study Group, and the Oxford and Cambridge Union societies.

He says that a former member of MI6 revealed her conversation with Neil Armstrong at a NASA conference, when he confirmed there were “other” spacecraft on the Moon when Apollo 11 landed in 1969. Armstrong also confirmed the CIA was behind the coverup. He also goes into more detail about it in this 2013 lecture.

So you see, this story has many different sides to it, and given all of the information that’s now available in the public domain regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial life, it’s really not hard to believe, especially when we already have some compelling information about the moon.

Why the Above Story Could Very Well Be True

Maurice Chatelain, whose expertise allowed him to invent radio equipment used to go to the moon (here is an example of one of his twelve patents), has revealed that “at no time when the astronauts were in space were they alone. They were under constant surveillance by UFOs.”

This statement has been packed up by several astronauts, one of them being Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon: “Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.” (source) (source) (source)

It’s not only agency astronauts, but agency insiders as well. For example, Dr. John Brandenburg, the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA, has also made some fascinating revelations. The mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994 (Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source). But, according to Brandenburg, the Clementine Mission had an ulterior agenda:

[The Clementine Mission was] a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding they expanding them? . . . Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.

George Leonard, a NASA scientist and photo analyst, has obtained a number of official NASA photographs of the Moon, which he published in his book Somebody Else Is On The MoonAlthough the photos are small and their resolution poor, they show details of original, massive prints. Far more compelling than these photos, then, are his verified NASA credentials and his statements about what was found on the Moon. And he’s not the only one with a credible background trying to tell the world the truth about the Moon and the photos that were taken from the Apollo missions.

Dr. Norman Bergrun, a mechanical engineer who worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin, has accused the agency of “garbling” photos the agency does not want the public to see. He has also stated there are a number of large UFOs out there. You can view some of his publications for NASA, where he worked for more than a decade, here, and watch that interview here.

There are also studies to consider. Members of the Society For Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) have recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. Titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C,” it argues that these features might be artificial in origin, meaning someone other than a human being built them and put them there. You can read more about that here.

“Shortly after I retired from the Air-Force, and I still was maintaining contacts with friends and associates at the various bases and one Col Parker in the Air Defence Command, the Space Command . . . mentioned an incident which I later confirmed. A spacecraft went to the rescue of Apollo 13, and they accompanied Apollo 13 on their voyage around the moon and back to Earth, and on two occasions they thought they might have to transfer the crew to their spacecraft. But they saw them safely back to the Earth.”

The quote above comes from Colonel Ross Dedrickson, who, in the 1950s, was responsible for maintaining the inventory of the nuclear weapon stockpile for the AEC and accompanying security teams checking out the security of the weapons, among many other duties throughout his career. It was taken from the interview below.

He is one of hundreds of military whistleblowers to give some very interesting testimony.

Contrary to popular belief, reports of artificial structures on the moon are both common and persistent. Among the first were from George Leonard’s 1976 book, Somebody Else is on the Moon, and Fred Steckling’s 1981 book, We Discovered Alien Bases on The Moon.




Alien Implants: The Ultimate Proof Of Alien Abductions?

Every time we speak about aliens, we talk about UFO sightings. When talking about UFO signs, people speak of alien abductions, and when you read about a case where someone claims to be abducted, you end up learning about alien implants.

But what are the mysterious, miniature devices? Fact or fiction? If proven authentic, these implants could be considered as crystal-clear evidence of an alien presence on Earth.

For years, the general public has been tormented by stories of UFO sightings, and even, in some cases, even alien encounters.

However, fact-checking these stories have been disappointingly challenging to achieve.

More often than not, it simply comes down to taking a person’s word for it.

In some cases, photographs have been taken, but, inevitably, questions about their authenticity always come to light.

Therefore, when it comes down to aliens, and UFOs, physical evidence has been treated as the Holy Grail of UFO research.

The amount of “official” information about the UFO phenomenon that has been made available thanks to ufology reports around the world is impressive.

In recent years, various governments around the world have taken a step towards Disclosure as they’ve started releasing an ample amount fo top-secret documents about the UFO Phenomenon.

Not long ago, if you remember, NASA brought together scientists, theologians, philosophers, and historians to examine how to prepare the world for alien contact, whether it be microbial organisms or intelligent beings.

Recently, declassified materials have revealed that the Pentagon spent at least 22 million dollars researching the UFO phenomena in a secret program that existed for at least three years.

According to reports, from 2008 through 2011, the Pentagon spent a budget of around 22 million dollars on a program that investigated UFO’s. Called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, the mysterious secret program was supposedly shut down in 2012.

Anyway, getting back to alien implants…

Strange marks on the body and implants extracted from people who claim to have been abducted have been present whenever someone comes forward saying he or she was abducted by aliens.

The case of the extracted implants is very fascinating, and if proven authentic, this material could be considered as the long searched for scientific evidence of the existence of aliens, and alien abductions.

Dr. Roger Leir is arguably the best person with ‘experience’ in the extraction of extraterrestrial implants. According to Dr. Leir, he performed 17 surgeries in which he extracted small objects of unknown origin.

According to Dr. Leir, a hallucinatory feature is that these supposed incrustations the size of a pencil point were magnetic in nature, and some even emitted radio frequencies.

Other objects examined had meteorite fragments inside them; metals such as gallium, germanium, platinum, ruthenium, rhodium, and iridium.

According to Alex Mosier, who has a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Chemistry, and Physics, who examined the pieces together with Leir, fibers were found very similar to carbon nano-tubes, suggesting that the fragments were designed or manufactured:

“You would not find these things in nature, they have to be processed, they require complex engineering, and they are not easy to manufacture. ”

As noted by mufon.com, tests were performed on both the removed alien implants and the individuals several years after surgical removal.

As noted in mufon’s article Alien Implant Removals: Before And After Effects;

The alleged implants removed from the first set of surgeries were studied by two different pathologists and then sent to various independent laboratories for extensive scientific analysis. The tests performed on these alleged alien implants were: a pathology/tissue evaluation, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), extensive metallurgical testing involving a density immersion test, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction pattern analysis and electron/magnetic and fluorescence property analysis. Isotopic range tests are also in progress. Tests were conducted by the National Institute of Discovery of Science (NIDS), New Mexico Tech, and other independent sources.

“The findings of these implant surgeries are highly unusual,” reported Dr. Leir. “In all these cases, there was virtually no inflammatory response.”

This is not the usual finding in foreign tissue reactions. Typically, foreign bodies embedded in tissues result in some type of acute or chronic inflammatory response and may include fibrosis and cyst formation. Such was not the case here. The pathology reports of the first two surgeries revealed that the metallic objects were encased in a very dense, tough, grey membrane consisting of proteinaceous coagulum, hemoseridin, and pure keratin.

More directly, blood protein and skin cells that are usually found in the superficial layer of the skin. Biological “cocoons” encasing the implants were also found to contain nerve proprioceptors – nerve and pressure cells of the wrong tissue type for that part of the body. These implant cocoons also fluoresced a bright green color in the presence of an ultraviolet light source.

Dr. Leir, who also worked as a consultant physician at the Mutual UFO Network, claimed that the people from whom he extracted the alien objects had no visible scars or disruption in the integrity of the skin.

There were no signs of inflammation, but the X-rays showed the incrustation, which seemed almost impossible.

The specialist in podiatry died on March 14, 2014 (paradoxically, due to a foot injury), so his studies did not go beyond a limited budget that prevented further understanding of the findings.

Until now, medicine, and probably other scientific fields, have had a phobia with respect to performing tests on people who claimed to have been abducted.

There are very few scientists and doctors who have dared to venture out into UFOlogy, especially because of the loss of prestige that this entails. However, if we are to come to the bottom of the UFO mystery, scientists, doctors, and other experts should start thinking about proactively participating in the UFO discussion, as only then will we be able to fully understand what on Earth is going on.
