1.4 – The Mission (5.4.10)

THAT’S NO MOON [5j]

“The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.”

– Carl Sandburg

According to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, aliens may have come to Earth for many reasons: to excavate, to breed, to conquer, or simply to explore.

“Certainly, we want to go out and find out about things we don’t know about. We see the moon. We want to go up to the moon and find out more things about it; we see Mars, we want to go there. We want to go to Jupiter. We send out our probes. So, if aliens are something like us, then perhaps they have that same kind of motivation. They just want to go learn.”

– Matthew F. Dowd, Ph.D.
(Editor, Univ. of Notre Dame Press)

“Just like we exhibit curiosity, there are other species out there that have the same trait. It would be very egotistical to think that we’re the only explorers in this Galaxy. I mean, that would be a very sad statement to suggest we’re the only ones with a brain and want to go out there and explore.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But while our own journeys into space have been brief and largely exploratory, could other beings, traveling millions of miles to Earth, have stayed? And, if so, might they still be among us?

“Many Ancient Astronaut Theorists think this all happened in the past and the extraterrestrials came here, did this and did that, and then they took off back to their own planet. But there’s a lot of evidence to show that extraterrestrials who might have come here in the past, they’ve never left. They have bases somewhere on the planet underneath the oceans, inside mountains. In South America, there is very strong beliefs that many UFOs come out of lakes and underwater. Lake Titicaca and other lakes in Peru and Bolivia and other areas of South America have some kind of underground, underwater alien base associated with them. If aliens were coming to our planet, there seems little doubt that they would stop at the moon on their way here. The moon itself is kind of the eye in the sky. NASA says that the moon is apparently hollow. During the Apollo missions, the command module crashed into the moon. And the moon rang like a bell for hours. There are craters on the moon which they cannot find a bottom to, and it’s thought, by some researchers, that these bottomless craters are entrances inside our moon. The whole enigma of the moon gets weirder and weirder the more you know it. Was the moon actually brought here from another solar system and put into orbit around our planet? Biologists say that life on this planet could never have occurred without our moon. And the reason for that is that the moon creates the tidal effect. And without the effect of tides and this rhythmic motion on the oceans, life would never have begun on this planet. In my mind, the evidence is there that the moon is a gigantic spaceship in orbit around our planet. It’s occupied by some extraterrestrial race. In many ways, it’s much like the George Lucas Death Star concept in Star Wars where they’re building this artificial moon that’s capable, with technology, of actually destroying a planet.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But if alien beings are using the moon as some sort of satellite for Earth observation, why? What would be the purpose? And where is the proof?

“They would like to see us evolve. You know, they are great masters, great avatars. They are very high. And so are we. And we need to live up to our potential. We really need to live up to our potential for all people.”

Nancy Red Star (Author, Star Ancestors)

“Today, we are living still, as if we are alone in the Universe while hundreds and thousands of people are seeing unusual craft in the skies as they did 5,000 years ago. And so, in a way, the idea that the Ancient Aliens would finally be coming around full circle all the way into the 21st-century…Us trying to push open a truth that governments have suppressed in the 20th-century, is really very ironic.’

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

There are many diverse and conflicting theories concerning the idea that Alien Astronauts have been visiting the Earth for centuries. But perhaps the proof lies in the most obvious place of all: right within ourselves.

“Somewhere in our genes it is coded that extraterrestrials were here thousands of years ago. And it takes a certain time before this message is open to us, maybe in the brain.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“I don’t believe extraterrestrials, ETs, Ancient Astronauts are the missing link. I think what they very well could be, they may be the beginning of the link – the link that helped genetically alter human beings, the link that jump-started our civilization the way we are today. It’s very possible they came down here and saw some creature, and they said, ‘You know what? We’re going to jump-start this.’ It may take another ten million years for this thing to become smart and intelligent. So, they created us. And we’re smart and intelligent now, aren’t we?”
