4.10 – ALIENS & DINOSAURS (5.4.12)

COEXISTENCE [11c]

Planet Earth…65 million years ago. An eight-mile-wide asteroid hurtles towards the planet at approximately 12 miles per second and strikes the region now known as the Yucatan Peninsula…with a force of 100 million megatons of TNT. According to mainstream science, this catastrophic event forever changed the climate and the topography of Earth and ended the reign of the dinosaurs.

“The object that came in was eight or ten miles in diameter. That impact dug a deep hole, lofted material into the atmosphere, black dust, which shrouded the planet in darkness for months, maybe for a couple of years.”

David Morrison, Ph.D. (Dir., Carl Sagan Ctr, SETI)

“There would have been a time in which the sunlight was simply shut out from the Earth’s surface, and photosynthetic organisms, like plants, would begin to die.”

Mark A. Wilson, Ph.D. (Prof. of Natural Sciences, College of Wooster)

“The plant-eating dinosaurs would have nothing to eat and would have died off. The meat-eating dinosaurs would then have nothing to eat either, and this might’ve lasted anywhere from five to ten years. How quickly the extinction took place is a matter of debate.”

Franklin Ruehl, Ph.D. (Theoretical Physicist / Cryptozoologist)

But is it possible that some species of dinosaur actually survived this cataclysmic event? And not only survived but thrived for several thousands, or even millions, of years? Perhaps clues can be recovered near a crater where scientists believe the giant asteroid struck the Earth, right in the heart of what is now the Yucatan Peninsula. Today, less than 90 miles from the epicenter of the asteroid impact, lies one of the largest and best-preserved cities of the ancient Maya, Chichén Itza.

“You have to wonder if it’s not some strange coincidence that the same spot, the Yucatan, which experienced this devastating asteroid strike, which caused extinction of the dinosaurs, is also the main habitation area of the ancient Maya.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Chichén Itza is said to have been the place where the Mayans made contact with the gods. And I find it an extraordinary coincidence of all the potential places around the Gulf of Mexico, which they could’ve chosen, they took a place where literally something fell from the sky 65 million years ago. And the Mayans believed that this contact with the gods, this contact with the sky, happened there, up until the most recent of times. And so, what we have here is either a coincidence or something else going on. And, really, this something else is only something, which hardly anybody has touched upon, but I think it is something which really needs to be explored in far more detail.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“In the Mayan area and other areas of Mexico, there are curious depictions of dinosaurs. There’s Pterosaurs. There’s a famous dinosaur that appears on one of the paintings at Bonampak.  So you have to wonder just how the Mayans knew about dinosaurs. Supposedly, dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But if, as mainstream scientists believe, the dinosaurs had been extinct for millions of years before the evolution of mankind on this planet, then what would explain the wealth of Mayan art depicting interactions between humans and what appear to be dinosaurs – found in the very area where they supposedly died off? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe that additional evidence can be found in northern Cambodia, at one of the largest temple complexes in the world, Angkor Wat. Here, among the intricate stone carvings that adorn the walls of the sacred site, researchers have been fascinated by numerous images of animals that supposedly roamed the region where the temple was built. But one, depicting what appears to be a dinosaur, has archaeologists and scholars scratching their heads.

“There’s a temple called Ta Prohm, and it has a series of medallions that are carved into its surface and one medallion in particular has attracted attention because it looks like a Stegosaurus. And so some have cited this as an example of a dinosaur that lived into historical times.”

Mark A. Wilson, Ph.D. (Prof. of Natural Sciences, College of Wooster)

“It’s a stegosaurus not as a skeleton, but it’s a stegosaurus with its skin and muscles, as if somebody saw it while it was alive. So, how is it possible that the artist was able to carve something like this? Did they receive the knowledge of something like this?”

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

“There is no doubt that ancient civilizations must have encountered dinosaur remains. Many of them lived in areas where dinosaurs are very abundant and I’m sure they found them here and there. I think that the fact that they have incorporated what appears to be dinosaurs in their artistic depictions speaks of an attempt to interpret them. How exactly they interpret them, I don’t believe is clear. Even 200 years ago, we had a hard time figuring out how the bones of dinosaurs fit together.”

– Luis M. Chiappe, Ph.D.
(Dir., Dinosaur Inst., Los Angeles Natural History Museum)

What could explain the ancient builders of Angkor Wat having such a sophisticated knowledge of dinosaur anatomy? Could it be, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that their knowledge came firsthand, as the result of actual interaction? The Tsodilo Hills, Northern Botswana, Africa. Here, in 2001, archaeologists discover what many believe to be the world’s oldest-known religious artifact, a 20-foot-long serpentine rock carving, made over 70,000 years ago, by the ancient San People.

“Serpent worship is one of the oldest known form of religious worship. And it’s absolutely everywhere that you look.”

– David Icke (Author, The Biggest Secret),
(Lifting the Veil), (The Perception Deception)

But might the enormous scale of the serpent’s head, measuring six-and-a-half feet tall, suggest that the carving represented not a python but a dinosaur?

“There’s a lot of ancient artwork that clearly shows a actual reptilian species being worshiped by humans. Some sort of reptilian presence that was here on the Earth in the ancient past.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

“The question is, is it possible that our ancestors saw something that they tried to imitate and the answer is a resounding yes.”

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

“Whenever it comes to evidence of the possibility that dinosaurs and mankind existed, each time science has tried to explain it away. But we know the archaeological evidence really suggests that it is not that straightforward. It is definitely possible that our earliest ancestors met dinosaurs.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Might ancient depictions of dinosaurs really be proof that humans and dinosaurs did, at one time, coexist? According to mainstream scientists, the notion is not only incredible, but downright impossible. Unless, of course, they are confronted with evidence in the form of a fossilized footprint of a dinosaur, side by side with that of a human being.
