3.7 – Aliens, Plagues, & Epidemics (9.8.11)

“An asteroid or a super volcano could certainly destroy us, but we also face risks the dinosaur never saw: an engineered virus, a nuclear war, inadvertent creation of a micro black hole, or some as-yet-unknown technology could spell the end of us.”

– Elon Musk

Scientists are continually challenged by unidentified strains of bacteria with mysterious origins. Could some of our most crippling plagues and epidemics be traced to the darkest voids of space – or even extraterrestrial intervention? During the Black Death of the Middle Ages, people reported bronze flying ships emitting a strange mist. As recently as 2011, NASA scientist Richard Hoover published evidence of life in meteorites. Is it possible that Ancient Aliens – as small as microbes – have shaped human history? [8]

INTRODUCTION [8a]

Festering disease…

“Everything was going on okay one minute, and then all of a sudden, people are kind of rotting in front of you.”

Milton Wainwright, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Microbiology, Univ. of Sheffield)

…Raging pestilence…

“The civilized world went out the window.”

Richard Rader, Ph.D.
(Lecturer, UCLA Dept of Classics/UCSB Dept of Classics),
(Author, Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus)

…And death of almost unspeakable agony…

“Are we the laboratory of the Universe?”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

But what if the source of all this very human suffering has a strangely non-human origin?

“It would be narrow-minded to accept viruses wouldn’t occur in other planets around the Universe.”

Jeffrey Galpin, MD
(Internist, Infectious Disease Specialist)

“Is there somebody who has the technology to actually send things to Earth, and are part of intergalactic warfare?”

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

“To suggest that ETs would come here and annihilate us in the way we see it in the movies – why go through all that trouble when all you have to do is release a toxin into the air?”

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times 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 could they even be the source of our deadliest epidemics?
