4.10 – ALIENS & DINOSAURS (5.4.12)

EXTINCTION OR EXTERMINATION [11e]

The United States Capitol. 1992. Congress authorizes funding for the Spaceguard program, a global network of telescopes designed to scan the skies for Earth-threatening asteroids. As of 2011, NASA has identified approximately 10,000 near-Earth objects that could potentially hit our planet.

“Of all the natural hazards that we know of – earthquakes, volcano, hurricanes, typhoons—the impact hazard, the possibility of us being hit by a comet or asteroid, is the only one we can eliminate. You could never stop an earthquake or a volcano. But if we had a decade, two decades warning of an object that might hit the Earth, we do have the technology, at least in principle, to send a spacecraft out and give it a nudge and just slightly change its orbit so it misses.”

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

“If we can control the trajectories of asteroids to direct them away from Earth, then it’s certainly possible that highly advanced extraterrestrials could have had the technology to direct an asteroid towards Earth.”

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

“Did advanced ETs direct an asteroid to that spot? It’s within the realm of feasibility that advanced ETs indeed directed an asteroid to the Yucatan Peninsula.”

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

“The question is: Was the impact enough to trigger the extinction? And that’s what’s controversial. Some people believe that that was enough; some people believe that it wasn’t.”

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

For decades, mainstream scientists believed that the asteroid that may have been responsible for wiping out the dinosaurs was a fragment of a giant asteroid called Baptistina. But on September 19, 2011, NASA concluded that the deadly asteroid may have had a different origin.

“Some people think that they can guess what the origin was of the object that hit us 65 million years ago. Others disagree. We simply don’t have enough data.”

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

But if the asteroid did not break off of Baptistina, where did it come from? And is it possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that the object may not have been an asteroid, but an extraterrestrial weapon?

“Perhaps the extinction was triggered by advanced ETs. Specifically, they might have used something to destroy the dinosaurs.”

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

In 1980, physicist Luis Alvarez discovered a thin, global layer of sediment nearly 65 million years old that contains high levels of iridium, an element not naturally found on Earth.

“Those materials probably came from an asteroid. They could have come from a comet. But they definitely came from somewhere in the solar system far beyond the Earth and moon.”

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

Iridium is believed to be deposited on Earth by celestial masses like meteors, comets and asteroids. But the rare element can also be introduced into the atmosphere as a byproduct of something else. Fallout from a nuclear weapon. But could the Earth’s iridium layer be physical proof that advanced nuclear weapons had at one time devastated our planet? And might they have been deliberately deployed in an effort to wipe out the dinosaurs?

“Most people don’t realize that most of the T. Rex skeletons that are on display at various museums around the world – for instance the Field Museum in Chicago has these dinosaur skeletons, these T. rex skeletons, and they’re painted with a very specific high-density lead paint. Now, the reason they had to paint them with lead paint is because when they discovered the bones of these T. rexes, they discovered that they were very, very intensely radioactive.”

– 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)

But if dinosaurs really fell victim to a nuclear attack, might there be some sort of tangible evidence? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the evidence does, in fact, exist – in the pages of the ancient Hindu texts.

“We can look into the ancient Indian texts like the Mahabharata, and there are clear stories that describe lizards of various sizes – some even the size of buildings – that were all mass-exterminated. And it was because of the angry gods. Now, we can look at this and say it’s mythology, or was there some type of mass extinction-level event caused by Ancient Aliens?”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“If we look at the records left in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India, we see descriptions of weapons resembling modern atomic weapons. We also see descriptions of advanced technology, such as spacecraft.”

Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

“In the Mahabharata and other sacred Indian texts, we can read that weapons of mass destruction were used that were brighter than a thousand suns when they were deployed. And afterwards, silence fell over the affected land. If nuclear weapons were deployed, the only logical conclusion is that their origin was in fact extraterrestrial. Is it possible that what we have here was in fact not an extinction, but an extermination event?”

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

Might the dinosaurs really have been exterminated by extraterrestrial beings, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And if so, could it be that some of them have in fact survived to this day? There are those who believe the answer is yes and that the evidence can be found in the creatures that exist right before our eyes.
