2.2 – Gods & Aliens (11.4.10)

“Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Myths and legends have long been regarded as fantastic stories that describe powerful gods, mutant giants, and fearsome monsters…but why do so many different cultures, separated by vast distances, tell the same stories? Is it possible that myths and legends were really eyewitness accounts of Ancient Astronauts descending to Earth? Ancient texts are filled with stories of gods interacting with humans, offering wisdom, technology, and even impregnating women. Could the demigods of mythology, have been the offspring of alien and human unions? If so, could aliens have supplied the “missing link” that accelerated human evolution?…advancing our civilization and making us who we are today?[3]

INTRODUCTION [3a]

Zeus…Surya…Thor…for thousands of years, ancient myths have described gods who came down from the Heavens.

“Always, you have someone who is descending from the sky. With loud noise, with thundering, with fire, with smoke.”

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

“They would have come from the most powerful and magical place possible – from the stars.”

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

But just who were these mystical beings that ruled the skies with supernatural powers?

“You could wonder if these tales of Zeus’ thunderbolts, Thor’s hammer, if these weren’t real weapons.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Did our ancient ancestors create the gods from their own imaginations? Or did they simply report events they believed to be true?

“Our ancestors misinterpreted extraterrestrials as gods, because that was the only way that they could explain away what they witnessed.”

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 were the gods of our ancestors actually visitors from other worlds?
