Vincenzo Macrino (Author, The Alien Project)
6.4 – Aliens & Stargates (1.24.14)
Raised a Roman Catholic, Macrino received a formal education in bible studies, and at a very young age, he noticed inconsistencies and unexplained events in biblical texts. He was particularly fascinated by descriptions of flying craft, giants, and strange, glowing beings – some of whom procreated with women! A lack of answers from the Church drove him to begin his own investigations. At age 15, his discovery of the works of Ancient Astronaut theorist Zecharia Sitchin launched his lifelong hobby of research.
Macrino has travelled across North America, particularly Mesoamerica and the Yucatan, as well Central America, the Caribbean, the Hawaiian islands, and Europe in search of answers. He has spoken with tribal elders, art historians, researchers, and religious scholars on the topic of alien encounters throughout the ages. His lifelong study of mythology, legend, folklore, and history coupled with an education and professional experience in investigative research arms Macrino with the necessary tools to analyze Ancient Astronaut Theory in an informative, understandable, and enthralling way. 
Since the advent of flight and the infancy of the space program, there have been numerous accounts of UFOs and alien beings. But what about ancient times? Did people observe mysterious objects in the skies prior to the invention of the airplane? Did they speak of mysterious, intelligent creatures from the stars? The answer is “Yes.” Since the earliest days of human history, UFOs and their occupants have been witnessed and recorded in detail. These accounts can be found in the writings of Assyria, Babylon, and ancient Egypt; in the Old Testament and apocryphal texts; in the ancient Sanskrit texts of India; in the literature and “legends” of Rome, Norway, Ireland; and in the oral traditions of many tribal cultures around the world, including those of Africa, the Hawaiian Islands, the Easter Islands, and the Americas. Humanity: The Alien Project examines ancient tablets, codices, hieroglyphs, manuscripts, scrolls, and oral traditions that describe alien encounters throughout history. These accounts span centuries, cultures and continents, but they all share the same central theme: the origins of man as it relates to the history of the “gods” and ancient UFO sightings. Author Vincenzo Macrino presents astonishing evidence that our ancestors not only observed strange objects in the skies, but at one time had a close, personal, face-to-face relationship with their occupants, and that in truth, we owe our very existence to the “gods” of the ancient world. In modern times, alien encounters have largely been covered up by media and the military or debunked as “conspiracy theories” or fiction. However, this fascinating investigation of thousands of years’ worth of literature and artwork shows that such encounters occurred long before anyone had a desire to cover them up; instead, they recorded these encounters so that mankind would remember them. Are our ancestors really extraterrestrials? The wealth of evidence presented in this work invites you to investigate this theory.
