4.4 – ALIENS & MEGA-DISASTERS (3.2.12)

ALIEN WARNINGS [5e]

The Sahara Desert. Stretching across Northern Africa and covering nearly three-and-a-half-million square miles, it is one off the hottest and most formidable places on Earth. With an average rainfall of only half an inch per year, humans have fought a relentless battle to adapt to the harsh environment or die.

“Historians have often looked at the Sahara Desert and wondered what it is that created this particularly inhospitable desolate area of the planet.”

    – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But in the Algerian Sahara, in the region of Tassili n’Ajjer, numerous cave paintings, some estimated to date back as far as 8,000 BC, depict a time when the land was lush and teeming with life. But if so, what happened?

“The scenes that you see at Tassili n’Ajjer are totally bizarre. They’re showing a Sahara that was once fertile with giraffes and antelope and other animals we find only in Central Africa really. And combined with them are these bizarre pictures of what even the archaeologists have called the Martians and the spacemen. They have strange helmets on and suits. They look exactly like extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The petroglyphs that we find there are incredible. They look like modern-day astronauts with suits, with helmets, with visors, and according to the legends of the Tassili region, the natives were visited at a time when a climate change was about to happen. So, is it possible that the reason why we have these depictions of these Ancient Aliens is because they assisted the native population at the time of climate change to move into a new area of habitation?”

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

Did alien beings visit this region thousands of years ago? And if so, might they have warned the local population of an enormous climate change, one that would trigger a vast migration? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer is yes. And for evidence, they point to the ancient oral traditions and legends of a Western African tribal people known as the Dogon.

“According to the Dogon themselves, they were guided by their alien fish god the Nommo, to this area near the Niger River where there’s a lot more water. So, they had to transit across the inhospitable Sahara to find their homeland and their own explanation is that alien gods led them to this fertile area where they could establish their civilization.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The Nommos describe coming down in some type of flying craft. The Dogon Tribe gave some very interesting details, which sound like a UFO, a large spinning disc that made a lot of sound and wind as it descended to Earth and the Nommos appear. So, this is a very interesting story, which was replicated by many different cultures of seeing beings descending from the heavens to Earth.  Were they gods, or were they extraterrestrials?”

– Jason Martell

(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

Even today, the Dogon believe they are the children of the Nommo, strange gods who came here from the Sirius star system.

“The Dogon Tribe look up at the star system of Sirius, and they are convinced that they were visited here, and they were told about a star system, a binary system that we didn’t know about for years later. I mean, how did these people know this?”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“The Dogon have always been focused upon in the sense that they have this story, this information about their ancestors who somehow had this contact with this non-human intelligence. Now the question is, how did they attain this? It really might come from the Sahara Desert, from specifically culture pockets like Tassili n’Ajjer, and that the Dogon are descendants from these people.”

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

Could the Tassili n’Ajjer cave paintings and the legends of the Dogon tribe really be proof of alien contact in the distant past, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? Perhaps additional evidence can be found half a hemisphere away at an archaeological site near the city of Chifeng in China. Here, scholars have found 5,000-year-old stone carvings and other artifacts believed to have been engraved by a Neolithic people known as the Hongshan.

“The Hongshan people in China are known to have strange carvings, jade statuettes, showing long headed people looking very much like extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But the most curious among the Hongshan’s ancient carvings is this one – an image of what many scholars and archaeologists believe to be the depiction of a massive comet or meteor, similar to the one that researchers struck the region around 3,000 BC.

“The evidence that we have that there was a massive catastrophe at that time, approximately between 3113 and about 3116 BC, is so fascinating. A whole team at Harvard and Princeton took a look, scientifically, at the Peruvian ice shelves there in the Andes Mountains, and they dug down, and they said there was a massive, planet-wide glaciation of the Earth, a gigantic catastrophe that froze wooly mammoths with tropical vegetation in their mouths, froze the entire planet at that time.”

– Sean-David Morton, Ph.D.
(Theologian / Radio Host, Strange Universe)

But how is it possible that these ancient people could have known of a catastrophic meteor strike that wouldn’t occur for another 116 years?

“It seems like they were possibly warned by their extraterrestrial gods of this coming catastrophe and were able to leave and relocate somewhere else.”

 – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“If we argue that this carving was done before the event took place, then somebody must have given them this knowledge, and in the Ancient Astronaut opinion, that knowledge was given to the Hongshan culture by extraterrestrials.”

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

“The question whether this is by coincidence or somehow by some intelligence who’s pulling the string of these meteorites and comets, our ancestors were absolutely convinced that there was an intelligence behind it. You might have certain comets which are programmed to bring life. You might also have certain comets which are programmed to bring destruction.”

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

Might the Hongshan people, like the ancient ancestors of the Dogon tribe, really have received warnings of impending catastrophes from extraterrestrial beings, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? If so, why? Did alien visitors really want to save the lives of Earth’s human inhabitants? Or were they trying to achieve something more, something that might forever change the course of human history?
