If ancient astronauts did land on Earth, they may have had a significant impact on human civilization. They could have been worshiped, feared, or revered, and they may have brought new knowledge or technologies. This could help explain some of the mysteries of our past.
In some remote parts of the world, life has remained unchanged for centuries. Decades ago, machines from the sky landed in these areas, causing confusion and fear among the primitive inhabitants. The visitors, light-skinned and with different eating habits, were thought to be gods. In reality, they were American servicemen building military bases during WWII.
After the war ended, the visitors returned to the skies. The native people, inspired by their technology, began constructing aeroplanes using straw and bamboo. For many years, they searched the skies day and night, eagerly awaiting the return of the technologically advanced visitors.
All humans have a primitive past. It's not hard to imagine that our ancestors may have reacted similarly to extraterrestrial visitors. The world is filled with unexplained phenomena, massive creations, and strange historical artifacts. In this article, we will explore some of these historical artifacts that hint at peculiar events that occurred in the distant past on Earth.
1. Painting In The Cave Of Pech Merle, France
The cave of Pech Merle near Le Cabrerets in France contains drawings of various wild animals, among which is a peculiar humanoid figure with limbs and a tail. The figure is not likely to be a product of imagination as the other animals depicted in the drawing are easily recognizable. Additionally, the drawing, believed to have been created around 17,000 to 19,000 years ago, also includes three flying objects.
2. Niaux Caves Arts, France
A cave drawing found in the Niaux caves of France, believed to have been created between 13,000 BCE and 10,000 BCE, appears to be an outline diagram of a spaceship like those seen in science fiction movies. This Paleolithic cave painting has raised many questions about the imagination and knowledge of our ancestors.
3. Val Camonica Cave Paintings, Italy
Val Camonica contains drawings of human or humanoid figures with halos around their heads, and lines that may depict light. These and other rock drawings, estimated to be from around 10,000 BCE, resemble men in spacesuits or old-style scuba gear, fueling theories of ancient alien visits.
4. Sego Canyon Petroglyphs, Thompson, Utah
The Sego Canyon petroglyphs in Thompson, Utah is an excellent example of ancient rock art. The site contains art from at least three native cultures spanning nearly 8,000 years, with some of the pieces depicting buffalo, horses, and white men, while others are of bug-eyed and oddly shaped figures. These strange drawings are believed by many to be depictions of ancient aliens. Some of these drawings have been dated to as early as 6000 BCE.
5. Tassili n'Ajjer Arts, Sahara desert, Algeria
The figures in these cave paintings from Tassili, the Sahara Desert in North Africa, do not resemble humans. The first painting shows a halo-like object around the head, similar to the ones seen in other cave paintings from different parts of the world. These paintings date back to 6000 BCE and 7000 BCE respectively.
6. Wandjina Rock Arts, Kimberley, Australia
The Wandjina Rock Art in Australia is a notable example of ancient art depicting humanoids with big eyes and unusual shapes. These cave paintings, dating back to around 3,800 BCE, were highly significant to the local Aboriginals, who would frequently refresh the paint, resulting in some areas having multiple layers. These paintings, known as the Wandjina, were considered by the Aboriginals to be the spirit of weather. The question remains whether these paintings depict aliens or not.
7. The Helicopter Hieroglyphs, Temple Of Seti I, Egypt
The Great Pyramids of Giza have long been the subject of conspiracy theories, and the ancient Egyptian civilization as a whole has been linked to various alien-related claims. However, one of the most compelling pieces of evidence for this theory can be found in the hieroglyphs of the 3,000-year-old Temple of Seti in Abydos, Egypt. These unusual inscriptions have led some to believe that extraterrestrial beings played a role in the rise of this ancient civilization.
In certain conspiracy circles, certain hieroglyphs found in the Temple of Seti are referred to as the "Helicopter Hieroglyphs" due to their resemblance to images of helicopters and futuristic aircraft. Mainstream archaeologists argue that these images are simply the result of typographical errors. However, some believe they were left behind by time travelers, while others propose that they were created to honor extraterrestrial visitors according to the Ancient Astronaut Theories.
8. The Sarcophagus Lid Of Mayan King Pacal
The sarcophagus lid of the Mayan king Pacal, created in the 7th century AD, is a well-known example of the Mayans' intricate artwork, characterized by its detailed, weaving and geometric designs. However, the book "Chariots of the Gods" by Erich von Däniken, published in 1968, argues that the sarcophagus is not just a lavish coffin, but also contains references to alien UFOs.
Erich von Däniken's 1968 book "Chariots of the Gods" claims that the central figure on the sarcophagus lid of Mayan king Pacal is an extraterrestrial alien depicted as operating a rocket or spaceship control center. He wrote that the figure is sitting, bending forward with a mask on his nose and manipulating controls with both hands, and one foot resting on a pedal with various adjustments. He also notes a flame-like exhaust outside of the frame, suggesting advanced technology.
Saqqara Bird, Egypt
The Saqqara Bird is a sycamore carving of a bird that does not resemble any known species. Theories suggest it could have been used as a toy, ceremonial object, or even a weather vane. The ancient alien theory surrounding this bird, dating back to 220 BCE, suggests that it represents ancient aviation technology and that extraterrestrial beings provided that technology to humans. The possibility of this theory is debated.
Ancient Egyptian and Pre-Colombian small models appear to resemble flying crafts or airplanes rather than birds or fish. The wing, fuselage, and tail proportions in each model are so precise that modern engineers have been able to replicate them in larger versions and successfully fly them. Despite this, the concept of lighter-than-air flight was not achieved until the late 18th century. It is unclear how ancient civilizations possessed knowledge about flying that allowed them to create models and sketches of flying machines.
