Did Alien Astronauts Really Come Down to Earth in Ancient Times?

June 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 212

Many sci-fi lovers like to believe that alien astronauts visited earth in ancient times. While it is a very attractive idea, there really is no way to know what did or didn't happen in in prehistoric times. There are no written records, no surviving words-of-mouth passed down through the generations, and certainly no ruins of technologically advanced cities. As far as history tells us, there is no evidence that humans have ever come into contact with alien life forms on earth. But we know that even in the day before recorded history, some people were not as backward as we might think they were. And they were doing some really strange things that are hard to explain today.

Transport yourself back to the Salisbury Plain of present-day southwest England some three thousand five hundred years ago. Some strange things were going on there. People were dragging huge stones of up to 50 tons from as far as 250 kilometers away to build a circle of upright stones. That place is called Stonehenge these days and only 17 of those awesome rocks stand today. What is more amazing is that some rocks lie horizontally over other standing rocks, like beams across the ceiling of a modern building. Now think of this. Only about three to four hundred years ago, people did not have the technology to lift such huge weights, let alone transport them over such a distance. How did the people who built the Stonehenge do that? Did they have the kind of advanced technology that we have today? There is no evidence to suggest that. Or did they get a little help from alien beings who came with their high-tech equipment, did the job and flew away? Don't be so quick to pooh-pooh the idea because, as stated above, there really is no way to know what did or didn't happen in prehistoric times. The second question is what did they build the rock formation for? If humans didn't have a very good reason to build it, then someone probably did.

Now transport yourself back a little back to the future to the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. The ancestors of today's Nazca Indians who lived there were drawing enormous lines across the desert, some as long as 65 kilometers. The drawings are so vast that the pictures they make can only be seen properly from the air. Two questions immediately spring up in mind. How and why? There is no written record to suggest any answer to these questions. Did they build it just for fun? Not very likely. Did they build it as part of ancient ritual? Probable! Or were they landing areas for alien spacecraft as suggested by some? But if they were, then there must surely have been Nazca folklores about strange craft and strange beings from the stars. The absence of any such folklore leaves a blank. In fact, until they were discovered from the air by a pilot of an airplane flying over the area in the early 20th century, the native Indians of the area weren't even aware of the lines, which means neither they nor their ancestors had any use for the strange lines. But if humans had no use for the lines, then someone probably did; otherwise they wouldn't be there. Was it ancient astronauts from outer space?

Now let's go to another time in ancient Gaul, which is roughly an area covered by today's France. Between 5,000 and 7,000 years ago, some prehistoric inhabitants of that place were erecting huge, roughly-rectangular shaped rocks in several parallel lines that stretched up to 6 kilometers. The number of the stones is itself staggering: more than 3000 in all. And the stones are not your regular pick-and-carry sized rocks; they are huge rocks that are as high as 4 meters. That was pretty tough work considering the primitive technology available to them. But somehow they did it. Why? One theory is that these were erected to serve as ancient seismographs. Really? Is France so earthquake-prone? Or was it at that time? Not very likely. However, it is obvious that they were made for a purpose, but nobody knows what. Did some intelligent visitors from outer space erect them as markers?

The Hindu epic Ramayana mentions a flying machine called the 'Pushpak Viman' which belonged to the ten-headed arch-villain Ravana. Although there is no description of what it looked like or how it flew, or even who made it, it was certainly a flying machine and he used it to fly all the way from his capital city to the forest where the hero Rama was living and abduct the latter's beautiful and faithful wife. There are also countless stories of gods, demons and powerful sages using devastating projectiles like the 'agnyatra' (fire missile) and 'bayuastra' (wind missile) to wipe out their enemies and several villages at a time. There is even mention of a poison gas that was capable of wiping out life from the entire world. How did these ancient people know of such things with their primitive technology? They certainly didn't develop the technology as there are no relics of technologically advanced ancient cities in India. There can be only one answer: they probably saw it. The saw strange flying machines in the sky and probably witnessed them either engaging in aerial battles or using their technology for other more productive purposes.

Until a few decades ago, it was easy to dismiss the idea of alien life in the universe. Not so anymore. With the discovery of more and more exo-planets, it is now known that almost every star has a planetary system. Considering that there are over a 100 billion stars in our galaxy (The Milky Way) alone, there could be at least a hundred billion planets out there. If only a tiny fraction of these exo-planets support life, the number of planets with life would still be staggering. And here we are only talking about the Milky Way galaxy. There are over a 100 billion galaxies each with over a 100 billion stars. Now do the math yourself. Therefore, the idea that earth may have been visited by alien astronauts in ancient times is not so farfetched. If you think about it, our own descendents may be traversing the universe in huge spaceships as alien explorers in search of energy, treasures and new worlds to conquer within the next five centuries.
