Ancient Astronauts And Contemporary Skepticism

Over the course of the past 12 months, I closely assisted a colleague in writing a collection of ten articles covering numerous points of my ancient astronaut idea. All ten of those articles circulated widely around the globe and view counters on many sites indicated plentiful readership, but feedback to me, or to her, from anywhere, was non-existent. There was neither criticism nor acclaim from anybody. Simply silence. I was starting to suppose that perhaps nobody in world needs to take historical astronauts significantly.

In an try to make some progress, I made a decision to pay sixty dollars for a evaluate of my historic astronaut website. In fact, this was to be a assessment by skeptics; a assessment by New Age believers can be nugatory. Their weblog’s description was “essential critiques of paranormal claims on the Internet.” The intermediary granted them 5 days to perform their overview but that has lengthy since come and gone, and not a phrase from them. My web site presents an enormous amount of proof and, in fact, I could not anticipate anyone to produce a good crucial review in just five days. Nobody, together with myself, would need to see quickly prepared and frivolous arguments, else I would make them look ridiculous in my counter arguments. Moreover, a few of my evidence comes from Spanish-language sources and, to start out, they would want time to confirm that none of it’s a hoax. They’re welcome to all the time they want.

What to anticipate from this weblog is uncertain. There are skeptics who are as narrow-minded of their pondering as their New Age counterparts, after which again, there are skeptics, like me, who objectively consider the evidence to reach at the reality. Was there a real historical astronaut? To assist the skeptics answer that question, I will give them some ideas on find out how to refute my theories. Right here, solely for house considerations, I will focus on the archaeological proof, leaving aside concepts on the best way to refute the cryptology and theology proof for another day.

My web site reproduces engravings from the Tiwanaku civilization in Bolivia. A kind of engravings depicts the alleged ancient 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? Easy. They merely need to reveal that the shape of those pods resembles some form of animal or plants to be present in that region. In other words, they should discover a terrestrial source for these engravings, otherwise my extraterrestrial arguments stay unharmed.      The timing of the Tiwanaku sky-god drawings coincides with the timing of the Nazca Strains in Peru, so the traditional astronaut of each locations must be one and the same. For Nazca, the skeptics will find many ready-made arguments, however I take into account all of them weak. The mentality of the individuals 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 physical eyes that might observe floor drawings. Alternatively, it needs to be demonstrated that the individuals of Nazca worshipped birds, believing them to have cognitive intelligence.

The recorded engravings on the cosmological Solar Disk, alleged alien artifact, may show to be the biggest problem for the skeptics. How are we to believe that the Andeans of the early sixteenth century a) knew that the Earth was spherical, b) knew that it was attainable to orbit the Earth, c) knew that sunlight striking the moon could mirror back to strike a spaceship, d) knew that the darkish clouds alongside the Milky Manner contained stars inside, and e) knew that water formed the idea of plant and animal evolution? Right here the skeptics would need to seek out parallels within the historical past of western civilization. I stay up for their response.
