4.10 – ALIENS & DINOSAURS (5.4.12)

PLANNED EXTINCTION [11f]

Solnhofen, Germany. 1861. Archaeologists discover a strange fossil embedded in limestone. Its features clearly identify it as a dinosaur, but with one exception, it has wings. They called it Archeopteryx, or “Ancient Wing.”

“Archaeopteryx – it’s like the-the Mona Lisa of the fossil world. It’s an animal that lived about 150 million years ago. It had a long bony tail, big claws, teeth in its mouth. It was a small animal. It was certainly a flyer.”

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

“We don’t know anything about feathers before then. But we certainly see in Archaeopteryx that has feathers that are designed for flying.”

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

“Now, the feathers may have been for warmth, they may have been for display to attract mates or perhaps to help them move faster when either chasing prey or being pursued themselves. The evidence appears to be very strong, because there are actually over 100 anatomical characteristics that are similar to birds and dinosaurs. And one theory is that T. rex, for example, has relatives today among chickens and ostriches.”

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

“Nowadays, it’s very well accepted that dinosaurs are not extinct. If you consider that we live with 10,000 species of living birds, that means 10,000 species of living dinosaurs. So, many primitive birds that are very dinosaur-like, these are all missing links, if you want.”

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

To date, Archaeopteryx is the only species of dinosaur paleontologists believe capable of flight. But if this is the only flying dinosaur ever discovered, how is it, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists argue, that all modern birds could have stemmed from this one creature? And how is it possible that birds and certain reptiles with dinosaur genes were able to evolve?

“According to evolution, all dinosaurs died out about 60 millions of years. First, there are many speculations what the reason is. It was said that it was an impact maybe created by a meteorite. But if this would be true, why only the dinosaurs died? It should be that all kind of animal were killed on Earth if you have a meteorite impact. So, that’s not the case. So, the question is: why only the dinosaurs died?”

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

“Some creatures that we are familiar with have survived from very long ago, cockroaches, crocodiles, sharks, lizards. So, the possibility exists that there are some that we have not seen that may live at the very deep part of the ocean or in unexplored lakes. We don’t know.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“We have a number of reports of lake monsters around the world. The most famous, of course, Loch Ness in Scotland. Are these dinosaurs that actually survived the devastation from 65 million years ago and found an ecological niche to survive in? For skeptics who believe that the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, I point to the case of the coelacanth. This is a so-called fossil fish that was discovered off the coast of Madagascar back in 1938. Now, it was believed extinct for millions of years. It actually predated the dinosaurs. This is a large fish about five to six feet in length and 100 pounds.”

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

Is it possible that the so-called evolutionary offspring of dinosaurs are a result of extraterrestrial intervention, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And if so, how and why? Some believe the answers can be found in the very bones of the dinosaurs themselves. In 1993, paleontologist Mary Schweitzer publishes a groundbreaking study concerning the fractured leg bone of a Tyrannosaurus rex, one presumed to be almost 70 million years old. Here, Schweitzer discovered the remains of blood vessels and what appeared to be whole cells. Her discovery contradicted what most mainstream scientists had long believed about the perishable nature of the soft body tissue of dinosaurs.

“I think that the possibility of finding proteins or portions of DNA, say, in animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago is certainly exciting because it opens up a world of paleogenetics, a world in which we can look at the genetic structure of this ancient organism in a way that we haven’t been able to do thus far.”

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

“Now, the current thinking has been that everything of a soft nature like that would’ve been ossified and would not exist today. Her research apparently shows that there could be DNA samples inside dinosaur fossils that could be extracted and it could be used to actually recreate one or more dinosaurs, to actually give us a real Jurassic Park.”

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

If scientists are getting closer to extracting viable DNA from dinosaur fossils, is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that extraterrestrials may have pioneered this technique thousands, or perhaps millions of years ago? And might they have manipulated that genetic material to make dinosaurs into numerous smaller, and arguably more manageable, species?

“I think it is possible that the coelacanth survived due to a direct guarantee by extraterrestrials. That they might have saved the coelacanth DNA and reintroduced the coelacanth into the world’s oceans millions of years after it was extinct. And the same counts for crocodiles and turtles and all of those animals that we know of today that have survived from the age of the dinosaurs.”

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

“It’s very difficult to say what would have happened if the large dinosaurs of the Mesozoic era didn’t become extinct. But there’s no doubt that the world as we know it today, in my opinion, must have been forged by the disappearance of the dinosaurs.”

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

“Maybe it was made on purpose by extraterrestrials simply because if the dinosaurs would have survived, they would have overtaken the planet Earth, and that was not in their plan. It was in their plan to create something like themselves, a human-like being. So, the dinosaurs were not helpful in this game.”

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

Might the extinction of dinosaurs have actually been a planned extermination by extraterrestrials? And could some dinosaurs have actually survived the event and even coexisted with man and still exist in another form? Perhaps the answers lie buried in every region of our globe. Because the more we learn about dinosaurs, the closer we may come to discovering the truth about the extraterrestrial nature of the strangest creatures that ever lived on Planet Earth: ourselves.
