Transcript of The Ancient Astronaut Theory

The Ancient Astronaut Theory
What exactly is the "Ancient Astronaut Theory?"
The Theory presents the idea that our ancestors were visited in antiquity by "Otherworldly Beings," and mistook their higher technologies as proof of their divine status.
Religious Texts
"Out of Place" Artifacts
What is God?
"Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away." -Genesis 6:24
Texts, Scriptures, Legends, and Myths
Kunti, mother of the Pandavas, was seeded by the "Sun God" and produced Karna, one of the heroes of the Mahabharata.
Ancient Sanskrit Texts described flying vessels called "Vimanas."
Detailed descriptions of the "Gods" (pilots) who controlled them, and the "divine" weapons they had at their disposal.
“Gurkha flying in his swift and powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishis and Andhakas. A single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousands suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the Iron Thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas."
“White hot smoke rose in infinite brilliance and reduced the city to ashes, horses burned by the thousand, corpses were vaporized. Afterwards a big silence came over the land and the people's hair and nails fell out, they began to have boils."
“The Puspaka car that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will...that car resembling a bright cloud in the sky."..."and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent car at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere."
"I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound."
"Bhima flew along in his car, resplendent as the sun and loud as thunder... The flying chariot shone like a flame in the night sky of summer ... it swept by like a comet... It was as if two suns were shining. Then the chariot rose up and all the heaven brightened."
1:33 - 3:55
The Bible
"Then God said, let us make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness..." -Genesis 1:26
and Speculations
"While he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with the flesh. Then the lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man." -Genesis 2:21:22
Were Adam and Eve the first genetically created humans?
"The tree of knowledge also was there, of which if any one eats, he becomes endowed with great wisdom…Then holy Raphael, an angel who was with me, answered and said, 'This is the tree of knowledge, of which your ancient father and your aged mother ate, who were before you; and who, obtaining knowledge, their eyes being opened, and knowing themselves to be naked, were expelled from the garden."
The Fallen Angels were cast from "Heaven" because of their treason in conspiring to overthrow God.
“And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other, "Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children."
“And the women conceiving brought forth giants."
Their offspring were called the Nephilim, which were a race of giants. (super abilities?)
0:00 - 1:02
2:00 - 7:07
Sodom and Gomorrah
In both the Bible and the Qu'ran.
2 Angels travelled to the city of Sodom to warn Lot (Abraham's nephew) that God would inflict terror on the city.
The Angels told him that if Lot and his family did not leave with them, there was nothing they could do to save them.
As they hurried away from the city, God rained down sulfrous fire upon it. When it was over and they looked down at the city, Lot saw smoke rising from the land like that of a furnace.
Angels and Aliens
Where did the wings associated with angels come from? In biblical texts, angels were never described as having wings.
Our ancestors were no less intelligent than we are today. They just used what was available to them at the time to describe what they saw to the best of their abilities. (birds-wings-flight) (fire-light-artificial light)
The Book of Enoch
Enoch is the great-great-great-great grandson of Adam.
He was the 7th anteluvian prophet in the "Old Testament" and the "Torah," in Judaism.
It is interesting to note, that such an important biblical figure is only mentioned a few times in the bible.
Chapter One
"From them (angels) I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period." [higher technologies]
Chapter Eight
"Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots, Barkayal taught the observers of the stars, Armers taught the solution of sorcery, and Tamiel taught astronomy." [taught higher knowledge]
"They (angels) raised me up into a certain place, where there was the appearance of a burning fire; and when they pleased they assumed the likeness of men. They carried me to a lofty spot, to a mountain, the top of which reached to heaven..."
"I saw also the mouths of all the rivers in the world, and the mouths of the deep." [high altitude, could reach heaven]
Chapter Seventeen
God, describing what he will do to destroy the evil on earth. “A destruction shall take place of the Watchers and the impious". -(Lack of freedom of choice, judgement in life not after death, has to plan in order to achieve feats)
God is of course speaking of the flood that he would send upon the earth in which the character Noah must build an arc.
-The story of Baby Noah is an intresting one:

-After returning from a trip, his father, Lamech found he had a new child

-wife swore she did not have sex with another man

Lamech, went to his own father Mathusela to ask why his son looked more like a son of heaven than him.

-Mathusela went to his father, Enoch, who told him that the child wass the chosen progenitor from God and to call him Noah.

-Is his another example of artificial ensemination?
Noah's Arc
-God ordered Noah to construct an Arc and to gather a pair of every animal in order to save them.
-this is biologically and physically impossible to do
-Why would god need a pair of every animal to be saved, if he could create life at will?
-Looking with modern eyes, this sounds a lot like a DNA bank
-Was a speaking symbolically? Or was this a real occurance?
-Ezekiel saw something so frighting he fell to his knees
-The word angel = celestial energy then sounds like a spacecraft (propulsion – flames)
-”From the glory of the lord, god came in bright clothes" and told ezikiel to build this building because "That was why we brought you here.”
-The next 40 pages describe Ezekiel building this building and show measurements
-A NASA scientist concluded that what Ezekiel saw was a spacecraft and reconstructed the craft.
-A German structural engineer reconstructed the building Ezekiel had to build
-The ship from the NASA engineer fit perfectly into the recreated temple
During his famous encounter with "God" when receiving the Ten Commandments
"And they saw the god of Israel and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone and it was like the very heavens in its radiating claraity”
Moses describes earth as round in same story when he was taken to the "heavens" by God:
“There upon i saw the whole round of the earth at once the depth of the earth and the vast altitudes of the heavens.”
-Earth not known to be round, he describing it from a high altitude.
-We cannot imagine an omnipotent, infinitely good God who is above all concepts of time when he appears malicious and does not know what is always going to happen. When He created man he was satisfied with his work, however he seems to have regretted his deed later because he eventually decided to destroy mankind by means of a great flood.
The story of the collapse of the walls of Jericho
Joshua and the Israelites marched around the walls for 7 days with the Arc of the Covenant and then blew horns and the wall fell.
Was the Arc of the Covenant a weapon?
-Numerous stories and legends that who ever came close to the arc of the covenant and didn't know of its power were struck dead by lightining (electricity)
-and sometimes people would begin to lose hair and nails (radiation poisoning.) = machine
-Moses and the Israelites were cast from Egypt and survived in desert for 40 years – how? And why would god do this?
-It's said they lived off a food called "Mana"
-The Zohar of Judiasm speaks of diff sized brains and faces connected with diff tubes and light sources – from modern prospective is a machine
"Land of the Bird Men"
-A tiny island 200 miles off the coast of Chile known as Easter Island
-We find hundreds of stones up to 50 tons sculpted into faces guarding the island
-Island could only support 2000 people at most
-Native legends say “flying” men landed and lit fires
-Natives insist on calling it land of the bird men
-The Dogan tribe tells that their God came from the star sirius, just like the egyptians.
-Whats intresting is this star can't be seen with the naked eye.
-We find a 1200 ton rock (stone of the pregnent women) in a quarry in Lebanon
-It takes 21 heavy lift cranes today to move it
-We are supposed to accept that ancient man did this with simple tools, ropes, no wheel, no pulley?
-There is an underground city over 280 ft deep discovered that is many thousands of years old.
-It's 13 stories deep and contains 15 thousand ventalation shafts that bring air everywhere.
-The Zoroastrian faith was practised here.
and In it, there's a chief God Creator.
-Legend says that the prophet Yima was instructed by the creator (sky God) to build an underground refugee to save the people from a disaster. (Much like Noah)
-In this story the city protected the people and animals from not a flood but an ice age.
Gobekle Tempe
-It is Giant complex in turkey dated at over 10,000 years old.
-That means this city is 7,000 years older than Mesopotamia.
- It consists of many giant circles of 19 ft pillars with unknown animals carved on to them.
-And is just after the last ice age, one step from cavemen, and they supposidly did this.
-After 13 years of digging, no tools or agricultural implements have been found.
-On the giant stones are carvings which depict creatures such as wild bores and geese but also many animals not indigous to the area now.
-Recorded on the stone pillars is yet another version of the flood myth.
(this would push the flood date to be much older than previously thought)
Carnac, France
-It is a band of stones that were hued form local rock formations over 4,500 years ago
-Legends say “giants” built Carnac.
-It is built of hundreds of rocks weighing up to 350 tonnes.
South and Mesa America
-Mesa American civilizations (Maya + Anasazi) speak of sky people who were tall, pale skinned, white hair.
-Giant doorway carved into solid rock
-It is a Gateway, but doesnt open or go anywhere
-Why make a doorway to nothing (rock)?

-Inca religion says that priest kings, also known as space brothers, came from other worlds.
-Legend says that the first priest king travelled through this portal using a golden disk that fell from the sky to operate this doorway.
-There is in fact a small circular depression in center of doorway and the rock above it is vitrified, a process which takes extreme heat.
-All a fantasy? despite the physical evidence, or was the sun disk a technological devise?
The Sumerians are the earliest people to record visitations from otherworldly beings.
They named these visitors the "Annunaki" which means "those who from the heavens came," and credit them with the existence of humans on Earth. (our creators)
The Epic of Gilgamesh
Considered one of the earliest written records on Earth.
Tells the story of King Gilgamesh and his experiences with the "Annunaki."
For a hundred years it was dismissed as myth, but recent discoveries have proved that it was based upon true events.
EofG Tablet 6
"Only two-thirds of him is a god, one-third is human." (Gilgamesh) [another example of "gods" mating with flesh and bone human beings]
"Spurn possessions and keep alive living beings! Make all living beings go up into the boat. The boat which you are to build..." (The Annunaki ordering Gilgamesh to construct an arc, in preparation for the upcoming flood, which is another biblical similarity.)
EofG Tablet 7
"'He said to me; look down at the land. What does it look like? Look at the sea. How does it seem to you?' And the land is like a mountain and the sea was like a lake. And again he flew for four hours and said to me, 'look down at the land. What does it look like? Look at the sea. How does it seem to you?' And the Earth was like a garden and the sea was like a water channel of a gardener. And he flew higher for yet another four hours and spoke: 'look down at the land. What does it look like? Look at the sea. How does it seem to you?' And the land looked like porridge and the sea like a water trough." (this passage describes the journey of "Enkidu," another being created by the Gods, as he was carried by the 'brazen talons of a bronze eagle' [ariel craft] through the skies by the "Annunaki." {Enkidu obviously saw the Earth from an extreme height as he described almost perfectly how the world looks from high above.]

-Could hold 20,000 people
-Evidence for wine cellars, stables for livestock
-Who built this massive underground city and why did they live deep underground?
Gods associated with the stars and heavens.
Mount Olympus described as home of the Greek Gods.
It is describe has having a magnificient Palace on its pinnacle, made of silver, gold, and emitting strange light.
-Could this underground city be the one that Ahuramazda (the creator) instructed Yina to build?
-Did the God provide the tech to build this network?
-Like most Gods, texts say that Ahuramazda flew in the sky in a divine chariot and raged war agianst his enemy, Angramanu, the evil.
(Could this be a war between ET forces battling over earth and its rescources?)
Apollo taught the Greeks how to make buildings, roads, and astronomy. He travelled around in a "Fiery Chariot." [Why would a god require a vehicle?]
Many NASA spaceships named after this god.
Zeus admired the beauty of mortals and mated with them resulting in the births of many "Demi-Gods." [connections to other stories of immaculate conception in the Bible, Mahabharata, The Book of Enoch, and The Epic of Gilgamesh] -mating between gods and humans.
-After further study, it was discovered Carnac used the pythagorian therom in its design.
-Is one of only 3 things that can be seen from outer space (Great wall and Nazca lines are the others)
-Could it have been meant to be seen from the air?
Gate of the Gods
Emperor Qin
-37 miles long geometrically drawn lines
-flattened mountain top
-Drawings of animals on mountain sides that can only be seen from above
-Archaeologists propose that these Lines are roads. (No wheel, no where, no mountain top.)
Nazca Lines
Described as having descended from the heavens inside of a flaming dragon. (in myths)
"Dragons" are obviously not a real creature, yet they are so prevalent in most East Asian cultures. Why is that? Could it be an actual misinterpretation of extraterrestrial spacecraft?
Qin is described as being a great man as are most who are associated with the "heavens" or "gods."
Puma Punku
Chinese Dragons
The Chinese proudly identify themselves as being descendants of the "Dragons." [similar to how the Sumerians believed that they were created by the Annunaki]
Considered the "Angels of the Orient."
Dragons have been known to mate with humans. [yet another example of "divine beings" mating with humans]
They have the ability to control the elements.
Ability to live in the seas, fly up the "heavens," and coil up on land assuming the form of a mountain. [mountains often associated with landing places for the gods-Mount Cyanide (moses), Mount Herman (fallen angels), Mount Olympus (greek pantheon), and the pyramids were built so as to become closer to the gods. (mountains reaching up to heaven.)]
Dragons taught the people the arts of culture. (writing)
Some described as having metallic scales.
"Celestial Dragons" protect the "mansions of the Gods."
Known to be able to carry extremely heavy weights.
Dragons are also known to "mate" with other creatures. So if a dragon mated with a pig, they would produce an elephant. [Genetic modification]
Legend of a bird who could fly and shoot from its beak heat that could melt stones. Was responsible for the construction
-Could the bird be a spacecraft piloted by, who the locals call, the space brothers
-Calendar starts before the were a civilazation
-Contrary to popular belief, the Mayan calendar does not say December 21st will be the apocalypse but rather that “the gods will descend with glory on that date”
-Mayans constructed many pyramids based on their calendar
-Calculated the cycles of the sun, moon and Venus and when they would all line up – 37,960 days
5:53 - 7:17
Flying Artifacts
-In the step Pyramid of King Djoser there is a wooden model of a bird lying beside a papirus with the inscription “I want to fly”
-This bird when tested, proved to be aerodynamic
-The wings of the bird are clearly not bird wings, as they are on top of the body. '
-The wings are thicker toward the body and thinner at the end, just like modern aircraft
-It also has a rudder – birds have no rudders
-In South American, artifacts an ancient forest tribe were found including a dozen gold artifacts that resemble modern planes were found
-They have a triangular shape, upright tail fin, stabilizers and a fuselage
-Nothing in common with anything similar in nature
-Not a single insect in the world has wings on the bottom.
-Comparative to space shuttles too
-Under tests the planes flew

Pris Reis Maps
Mercator's Maps
Native Americans
In Huron legend, the prophet called “The Peacemaker” was born to a virgin Huron maiden.
The tribe tried to drown him but realized that he was divine.
The peacemaker gave the Natives “The Great Law of Peace.”
Another example of immaculate conception.
Many Native Americans claim to have originated in North America.
Creation stories say that a “bird” brought them. [spaceship]
-1 legend says their ancestors escaped a deadly storm of “falling stars” with the help of the snake people, who took them to shelters under the earth.
-Cambodian legends say the "Angkor Wat" (Cambodian Ziggurat) was built by Priapishnatar, the offspring of a father and mother who came from the "heavens".
-When grown Pria was said to have been taken up to a flying palace lead by the god Indra.
-He recieved a message to be a leader and teacher of his people. He was taught many things during his time in this palace.
-He was told to build Egarwat as not just as a sanctuary of peace but as a landing zone for the sky beings who taught him – they were called “the glowing ones”
-Said he was able to pour some magical water onto stone and the stones would harden into place - no tools required.
Angkor Wat

-Legends tell of a "golden chariot" that came from the heavens, in it came a woman whose name was Oryana. To fulfill the task of becoming the “Great Mother” of the Earth. Oryana had only 4 fingers which were described as being webbed and gave birth to seventy Earth Children before returning to the Heavens. (Peculiar drawings of beings with four webbed fingers etched into stone.)

-Pre-Incan mythology: creater god Viracocha created world and sculpted race of giants from stone
-when they displeased him, he sank them in deep flood
-then he shaped clay figures of men and animals at Tiahuanaco and breathed life into them. (exact same as bible)
-taught them language customs and arts
-flew some of them to different continents in which they were supposed to inhabit.
South America
"Sky People"

-There are many legends of “monsters” and depictions of the gods creating these hybrids of many mixed animals.
-A sarcophogus was found in Egypt with bones of an elephant and 7 other animal bones crushed up – didn't want these creatures coming back
The Pyramids
-Millions of stones were used in the pyramids, there must have been some sort of efficient method of cutting and transporting stones
-The great pyramids interior design is very intricate and has no inscriptions
-Also, contrary to its apparent purpose, no bodies have been burred in it.
-Features 4 shafts whose purpose can't be explained. The construction of them is incredible difficult
-What were they used for?
-Its been determined that they point at stars in the sky, One being Sirius, the sun thier "Gods" supposidly came from.
-Ra is the Sun God of ancient Egypt
-He is depicted as landing on the back of the sphynx in numerous drawings

In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad experienced the Mi'raj or "Asc
In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad experienced the Mi'raj or "Ascension in which he was accompanied by the Angel Gabriel on a "winged horse" called from Bumaq, from Makkah to Jerusalem, then through the seven heavens until he approached the "Throne of God," and was profoundly affected by the experience.
This is similar to the stories of other religious characters including Enoch, Ezekiel, and Gilgamesh all of whom have ascended into the heavens and have met with God sitting on his Throne.
