Ancient Astronauts And Contemporary Skepticism

Over the course of the previous 12 months, I closely assisted a colleague in writing a sequence of ten articles overlaying diverse aspects of my ancient astronaut idea. All ten of these articles circulated broadly across the globe and think about counters on many websites indicated plentiful readership, however feedback to me, or to her, from anyplace, was non-existent. There was neither criticism nor acclaim from anybody. Simply silence. I used to be beginning to suppose that maybe no one in world needs to take ancient astronauts severely.

In an try to make some progress, I made a decision to pay sixty dollars for a evaluation of my ancient astronaut website. In fact, this was to be a overview by skeptics; a evaluation by New Age believers can be worthless. Their weblog’s description was “essential critiques of paranormal claims on the Web.” The intermediary granted them 5 days to perform their evaluate however that has long since come and gone, and never a phrase from them. My website presents an unlimited quantity of proof and, in reality, I could not expect anyone to provide an excellent vital evaluate in just 5 days. Nobody, including myself, would wish to see rapidly ready and frivolous arguments, else I’d make them look ridiculous in my counter arguments. Furthermore, some of my evidence comes from Spanish-language sources and, to begin, they would want time to confirm that none of it’s a hoax. They are welcome to on a regular basis they need.

What to anticipate from this blog is unsure. There are skeptics who’re as narrow-minded of their considering as their New Age counterparts, and then again, there are skeptics, like me, who objectively evaluate the evidence to arrive on the reality. Was there a real historical astronaut? To help the skeptics answer that question, I’ll give them some ideas on how you can refute my theories. Right here, solely for area concerns, I will think about the archaeological evidence, leaving apart ideas on find out how to refute the cryptology and theology evidence for another day.

My web site reproduces engravings from the Tiwanaku civilization in Bolivia. One of those engravings depicts the alleged historical astronaut as an aquatic with a three-pronged tail, with every of the three prongs ending in a pod. How do the skeptics refute that? Simple. They merely must show that the form of those pods resembles some type of animal or vegetation to be found in that region. In other phrases, they should find a terrestrial supply for those engravings, otherwise my extraterrestrial arguments remain unhurt.      The timing of the Tiwanaku sky-god drawings coincides with the timing of the Nazca Strains in Peru, so the ancient astronaut of both places must be one and the same. For Nazca, the skeptics will discover many ready-made arguments, but I think about all of them weak. The mentality of the people of Nazca can’t be assumed to be unique in human history. It must be demonstrated that individuals elsewhere additionally believed that the solar, moon, or sky-spirits had bodily eyes that would observe floor drawings. Alternatively, it has to be demonstrated that the folks of Nazca worshipped birds, believing them to have cognitive intelligence.

The recorded engravings on the cosmological Solar Disk, alleged alien artifact, may prove to be the biggest challenge for the skeptics. How are we to imagine that the Andeans of the early sixteenth century a) knew that the Earth was spherical, b) knew that it was possible to orbit the Earth, c) knew that sunlight striking the moon may mirror again to strike a spaceship, d) knew that the dark clouds alongside the Milky Approach contained stars within, and e) knew that water shaped the basis of plant and animal evolution? Right here the skeptics would need to search out parallels in the history of western civilization. I sit up for their response.
