3.1 – Aliens & the Old West (7.28.11)

“There is nothing new in the world, except the history you do not know.”

– Harry S. Truman

Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe aliens have been visiting Earth thousands of years. If so, might we find evidence of this even in the stories of America’s Old West? In Aurora, Texas, the local cemetery claims to hold the body of an alien whose ship crashed there in 1897. In Utah, petroglyphs depict strange beings wearing what looks like spacesuits. In Southern California, 19th-century ranchers reported seeing an otherworldly creature emerge from Elizabeth Lake. And even in Tombstone, Arizona, the home of Wyatt Earp and the site of the gunfight at OK Corral, cowboys claimed to have shot at a giant metallic bird. Are these simply campfire tales, or did the cowboys and native people of America’s Wild West actually come into contact with alien beings from another – much more distant – frontier? [2]

INTRODUCTION [2a]

Cowboys with six-shooters…covered wagons crossing the plains…and Native Americans wearing war paint and feathers. These are the images most people associate with America’s Old West.

“The Wild West as we know it, tends to come from Hollywood movies. And that’s a very cleaned-up, sanitized version of what the West was really like.”

 – John Whalen
(Author, The Big Book of the Weird Wild West)

But might there be more to the story? Much, much more?

“When we think of the Old West, the last thing we think about would be Billy the Kid chasing a flying saucer across the desert. From cowboys, to lawyers, to doctors, to housewives washing the clothes and taking care of the sheep – people were seeing things in the sky they couldn’t explain.”

   – Logan Hawkes
(Publisher, The Mexico Less Traveled),
(Author/Producer, Ancient Mysteries of the Americas),
(Author, Close Encounters of the Old West),
(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

“This is a replica of one of the bars that was in one of the light ships and they’re guarded by the Star People.”

Standing Elk (Chief, Yankton Dakota Tribe)

“Ancient Aliens have been around for tens of thousands, if not millions of years. Why would they avoid the American Southwest?”

Bill Birnes, J.D., Ph.D.
(Author / Publisher, UFO Magazine)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history? And did the cowboys and Natives of America’s Wild West actually come in contact with alien beings from another – much more distant – frontier?
