The historical event that fascinates me the most is the building of ancient sites around the world. I am going to admit, I am a huge fan of the series, “Ancient Aliens” where scientists try to find evidence for the hypothesis that many of the “gods” of the past may have indeed been from outer space.

Now before you say I am crazy, keep in mind, I am a trained historian so my burden of proof is pretty high. I am not saying I am 100% in on it, but there are certainly some very strange aspects of ancient architecture that just don’t make any sense.

The Palace of Khufu

The stones are massive that make up many of these locations. It defies logic how the ancients were able to carry them, oftentimes from 20-100 miles away, and place them in perfect structures aligned with the stars. Pyramids and ancient sites can be found throughout the world with very similar characteristics. The only problem is….how did they all come up with the same designs when they supposedly had no contact with each other.

Nazca Lines - Peru

The Nazca Lines (pictured above) are a sprawling complex of twenty-plus miles of random lines made thousands of years ago for no apparent purpose. It wasn’t until someone flew over them in an airplane that it started to make sense. Why would the ancient peoples of the world bother with something like this, when they could not fly?

I could go on at length about this, but alas I am feeling the pull of my bed dear readers so I shall retire for the evening.

  1. I mean that is a really cool hypothesis. I watched that show too.

    1. There is a lot of evidence that human cibilization is much older than we think it is also, which is really exciting. Maybe the two theories are related?

      1. It could be. I wonder sometimes if there was some cataclysmic event that wiped out technology a long time ago.

      2. Yeah something doesn’t add up between the evidence and the progressions of technology. I wonder what the interpretation will be 100 years from now?

      3. Assuming we don’t blow ourselves up first. 😉

      4. Yes, with that caveat…. When I look at all the potential for disaster, each day is more of a gift. Somehow we carry on, hopefully we make it.

      5. I know, right? Still alive and haven’t blown up the planet. Tomorrow is another day.

  2. As a Christian, there is no evidence in the Bible about aliens. But from a lover of science fiction and a degree in geography’s point of view, I’m intrigued by the notion. And the endless series of ‘what if’ questions.

    1. It certainly is interesting food for thought. If nothing else, it gets people engaged in ancient history.
