Top 10 Ancient Aliens Mysteries

Bryan Johnson . . . Comments

Ancient aliens is the idea that aliens visited earth in the past. The idea of ancient aliens is not a new one either. Imagination is one of the most powerful tools in humanity’s evolutionary struggle for survival. As a race, we are hardwired to consider important concepts, such as the creation of life on Earth and the history of people on this planet. At some point, we are all presented with various explanations and theories regarding the expansion of human life on Earth. In the long history of mankind, the majority of these concepts have followed religious teachings, and the power of a spiritual God or Gods. In modern times, many people have come to challenge these claims.

The idea of evolution has been used to describe the gradual change of traits that living organisms undergo over time, which is related to the environment, but it doesn’t explain how the biological cells of human’s first ancestor were spawned. Because of the fact that everyone is interested in the creation of life on Earth, and concurrently we have been taught to believe in the power of religion and the impossibility of alien life, the idea that this article will be examining is controversial. It will be based around some concepts that have been labeled absurd by the scientific community, but let your imagination go, and have some fun with the list.

Ancient Aliens

300Px-Ancientastronauts

The idea surrounding ancient aliens is a basic one. It states that the human population was influenced by a group of extraterrestrials that visited Earth in the past. The ancient aliens were directly involved in the evolution of primates, including humans. It has been suggested that this was accomplished by way of genetic engineering, cross-breeding, or a combination of both, ultimately helping in the development of human cultures, technologies and religion. The idea first gained widespread exposure with the 1968 publication of Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Däniken, but the concept has been around since the middle of the 19th century. A common variant of the idea includes proposals that deities from most, if not all, religions, including angels and demons, are actually extraterrestrials whose advanced technologies were taken by people as evidence of a divine status.

This concept is related to the religious practice of a cargo cult, which can be seen in modern day pre-industrial tribal societies. Especially during World War II, when indigenous people were contacted by soldiers with advanced equipment, such as guns and tanks. The cults subsequently attempted to obtain wealth through magic and religious rituals and practices. The ancient alien theory states that extraterrestrials purposely tricked the human population into believing they were Gods, creating religion to help people evolve more efficiently. The Fermi paradox is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the lack of evidence for, or contact with, such civilizations.

It has been proposed that, with the current age of the universe and its vast number of stars, if the Earth was typical, extraterrestrial life should be common. In response to this paradox, the zoo hypothesis has been suggested. It states that aliens generally avoid making their presence known to humanity, or avoid exerting an influence on development, somewhat akin to zookeepers observing animals in a zoo, or experimental scientists observing a study of life. Adherents of the hypothesis feel that the Earth and humans are being secretly surveyed using equipment located on Earth, or elsewhere in the Solar System. Charles Fort’s unpublished 1915 manuscript, novel X, describes how Martian beings or Martian events control life on Earth. Fort ultimately burnt the manuscript, but one surviving quote from it is “The Earth is a farm. We are someone else’s property.”

Angels and Demons

1528936 F520

The idea of ancient alien as astronauts has spawned a UFO religion named Raëlism. The Raelian Movement teaches that life on Earth was scientifically created by a species of extraterrestrials, which they call the Elohim. Members of the Elohim appeared human and were mistaken for angels, cherubim or gods. The Bible is full of accounts of angels and demons. The text mentions millions of angels and their experiences on Earth and in the heavens. In Christian tradition, demons are similar to angels. They are spiritual, immutable and immortal. The individual demon owns a specific knowledge, sometimes on only one subject. The apocryphal Book of Enoch recounts that a group of 200 rebellious angels, or Watchers, left heaven and came down to Earth to marry human women and have children with them.

The Quran depicts a story of angels that are given minds of their own, found in verse [2:34]. One of the angels was Iblis (Satan/Lucifer), who rebelled and was therefore banished on earth to create mischief amongst mankind. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, angels were all created as good beings, but some decided to become evil. It was written that angels do not need faith as they already have the knowledge of celestial things, which means that their action constitutes unforgivable sin. The idea of alien intervention on Earth can be found in the modern religious philosophy of Thelema. Thelema was developed by the early 20th century British writer, Aleister Crowley.

Crowley’s system of Thelema begins with The Book of the Law, which he claims was a direct dictation from an entity named Aiwass. Crowley later identified Aiwass as his own Holy Guardian Angel. The religion is founded upon the idea that the 20th century marked the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, in which a new ethical code would be followed; “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” The famed American rocket propulsion researcher, Jack Parsons, was one of the first Americans to take a keen interest in the writings of Aleister Crowley. Parsons research into rocket propulsion was some of the earliest in United States history. His pioneering work in the development of solid fuel, and the invention of Jet-fuel Assisted Take Off units for aircraft was of great importance to the start of humanity’s space age. The work of Parsons and his peers helped people usher in the age of space travel. Jack Parsons was largely self-educated.

Men in Black

Room-For-Mib01

The extraterrestrial hypothesis is the theory that some unidentified flying objects (UFOs) are best explained as being extraterrestrial life or non-human aliens from other planets. The idea sounds simple to modern day humans, but it a relatively new concept that originated out of the saucer sightings and close encounters of the 1940s-1960s. Thousands of UFO sightings have been reported in the last 50 years, and one of the emerging themes in these events is the Men in Black. The Men in Black are men, or aliens, dressed in black suits who have been reported to harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. In most cases, the men claim to be government agents, but it is often suggested that they may be ancient aliens themselves.

People who have reported an encounter with the Men in Black often describe them as men of short stature with a deeply tanned and dark complexion. According to the accounts, Men in Black always seem to have detailed information on the person they contact, as if the individual had been under surveillance for a long period of time. They have been described as seeming confused by the nature of everyday items such as pens, eating utensils or food, as well as using outdated slang. Those who have encountered them say they produce identification, but when verification is later sought, the people described do not exist or have been dead for some time. Another defining characteristic of the Men in Black is wide grins and disconcerting giggles.

The phenomenon has been frequently reported since the 1950s and 1960s, but some researchers, including John Keel and others, have suggested similarities between the Men in Black reports and earlier demonic accounts. Keel suggests that the beings are a modern-day manifestation of the same phenomena that was earlier interpreted as the devil, or encounters with fairies. The term “the black man” has been used for centuries in reference to the Devil. In history, the Black Man was often reported as meeting with the accused and having sexual intercourse with them. Old Scratch or Mr. Scratch is another folk name for The Devil that is used in the local legends of New England and pre-Civil War America.

During the Middle Ages, the black man was not a person with African features, but rather a man colored black and dressed in black. In modern times, another phenomenon known as the Grinning Man has become associated with the Men in Black, and various reports of paranormal activity. These creatures are larger and characterized by a wide grinning face. In most cases, people describe a strange sensation of not being able to focus in on the Grinning Man. It has been suggested that the smile is an attempt by the aliens to conform to society and keep humans feeling safe, but in all reports the figure is described as extremely creepy. In the Half-Life series of first-person shooter video games, there is a mysterious character named G-Man that parallels some of the Men in Black descriptions.

Modern Technical Advancement

Lockheed Sr 71 Blackbird Poster-P228585009582919162Trma 400

During WWII, the term foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots to describe the various UFOs and mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over both the European and Pacific Theater of Operations. In the wake of the war, the world entered an era of substantial achievement and technical advancement. One such example is the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, which is a United States aircraft that was developed in the early 1960s. The SR-71 Blackbird is a strategic reconnaissance aircraft that currently holds the air speed record. In 1903, Wilbur Wright set the aircraft speed record going 6.82 mph (10.98 km/h). In 1976, the SR-71 Blackbird went 2,193.2 mph (3,529.6 km/h). The craft was manned by Eldon W. Joersz during the record flight, but is highly capable of taking off and landing unassisted.

In modern times, organizations have been developed, such as the Disclosure Project, which have alleged the existence of a world government cover-up of information relating to unidentified flying objects and alien encounters. People argue that the technical advancements humans have experienced since WWII have been achieved with the help of extraterrestrial life and equipment. Proponents of the ancient aliens theory have suggested that the development of nuclear weapons sparked an increased interest in humanity’s evolutionary path, ultimately leading to an era of mass abductions and close encounters. Some others point to the current global climate disruption and apocalypse predictions, identifying them as a precursor for the secret extraterrestrial involvement and intervention on Earth, ensuring the survival of life.

Angel Hair

Spiderhair

Angel hair is a substance that is said to be dispersed from UFOs as they fly overhead. It has been described as being like a cobweb or a jelly. Angel hair has been reported at sightings of the Virgin Mary. This fact has intrigued ancient alien believers, and has been used as a possible indication of extraterrestrial influence at reported sightings of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Historical reports of angel hair show that the substance disintegrates, or evaporates, within a short time of forming. One publicized theory of UFO believers is that the substance is “ionized air sleeting off an electromagnetic field” that surrounds a craft. The most reported incident of angel hair occurred in Oloron, France, in 1952. The event was characterized by a large amount of unexplained aircraft sightings.

On November 2, 1959, in the Portuguese city of Évora, angel hair was collected and analyzed by armed forces technicians and scientists of the University of Lisbon. Conclusions stated that the substance was so advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind, a vegetable product, not animal. People have connected references in the Bible to the phenomenon of angel hair. Pixie dust is said to be related. Beginning in the 14th century, humans began to mention a gelatinous substance named star jelly. Star jelly is described as a translucent or grayish white gelatin, which tends to evaporate shortly after falling. In the past, the substance was connected with meteor showers. Angel grass is a related phenomenon that occurs when short metallic threads fall to the ground in intertwined loosed masses. However, angel grass is an explained occurrence and comes from certain military aircraft. It is a type of Chaff, used as a radar counter-measure.

Greys

Grey-Alien

Greys are a proposed alien species that is most widely associated with the alien abduction phenomenon. It has been alleged that Greys are intelligent extraterrestrials who visit Earth and secretly perform medical experiments on humans. Paranormal claims surrounding the Greys are different in many ways, including their nature, moral dispositions, intentions and physical appearances, some having a different skin color. A composite description derived from overlap claims would have Greys as small bodied, sexless beings with smooth grey skin, an enlarged head and large eyes. They are described as humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or a completely lack of, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs.

Their bodies are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small chest, and lacking in muscular definition. According to a 1995 study among reports of alien encounters, Greys make up approximately 50% in Australia, 43% in the United States, 90% in Canada, 67% in Brazil, 20% in Continental Europe, and around 12% in Great Britain. It has been proposed that the home planet of these beings is located in the Zeta Reticuli star system. Greys are therefore sometimes known as Zeta Reticulans. People have reported two distinct groups of Greys, with one being much taller. This had led to the suggestion that the smaller Greys are not biologically alive, but instead an artificially constructed robot or cyborg servant.

People have described the Greys as staring into their eyes when conducting mental procedures. This staring, which is performed directly in your face, is claimed to induce hallucinogenic states or directly provoke different emotions. According to English reproductive biologist Jack Cohen, the typical image of a Grey, given that it would have evolved on a world with different environmental and ecological conditions from Earth, is too physiologically similar to a human to be credible as an alien species. This brings us to the theory that these extraterrestrial beings had some influence on the evolution of life on Earth in the distant past, or that they are an ancient race of humans that was forced to abandon Earth, but still watches over the planet.

Animal Mutilation

Cattleufo

Cattle mutilation is a term that has been adopted to describe the apparent killing, and then mutilation, of cattle under unusual or anomalous circumstances. Sheep and horses have also been mutilated, and the phenomenon is not specific to cattle. A hallmark of these incidents is the surgical nature of the mutilation. The creatures are often found completely drained of blood, with missing internal organs. There is no obvious point of entry, and the surgically precise removal of the animal’s reproductive organs and anal coring is consistent. Another strange occurrence surrounding the mutilations is that the animal’s bodies are found dumped in an area where there are no marks or tracks leading to or from the carcass, even when the body is found in soft ground or mud. The surgical-type wounds observed appear to be made by intense heat and a very sharp/precise instrument.

Often flesh will be removed to the bone in an exact manner and location, such as around the jaw exposing the mandible. The first largely reported case of mutilation occurred near Alamosa, Colorado, in 1967. The event involved a horse named Lady, who was discovered with her head and neck skinned. The cuts on the horse were very precise and no blood was found. According to Lady’s owner, there was a strong medicinal odor in the air that surrounded the corpse. At the scene, fifteen tapering, circular exhaust marks were punched into the ground. This evidence was discovered over an area of some 5000 square yards. Similar to other cases of animal mutilation, the area surrounding Lady showed an increase in radiation levels. By the mid 1970s, mutilated cattle were reported in 15 US states and in many other areas all over the world.

Many of the accounts include unexplained lights, sounds and UFOs. It has been noted that mutilated cattle are avoided by large scavengers, such as coyotes, wolves, foxes, dogs, skunks, badgers and bobcats for several days after death. Similarly, domestic animals are reported to be visibly agitated and fearful of the carcass. According to Dr. Howard Burgess, nearly 90% of mutilated cattle are between four and five years old. Laboratory reports carried out on some of these animals have shown unusually high or low levels of vitamins or minerals in tissue samples, and the presence of chemicals not normally found in animals.

In one case involving a 1978 mutilated cow in New Mexico, samples from the animal’s liver were found to be completely devoid of copper and to contain four times the normal level of zinc, potassium and phosphorus. As you would suspect, a government cover-up has been offered as an explanation for the deaths. This is often fueled by the reported presence of black helicopters near mutilation sites. Various hypotheses have been written, suggesting that cattle mutilations have been committed by aliens who are gathering genetic material for unknown purposes. Proponents of the ancient alien theory suggest that, as cows make up a significant part of the global human diet, a study is being carried out on this element of the human food chain.

Spaceship Moon Theory

090126-Eclipse-01-461

Over the years, it has been scientifically observed that the Earth’s Moon holds some strange characteristics. The Moon is the 5th largest natural satellite in the Solar System. It is believed to have been created by a giant impact between the young Earth and a Mars-sized body. After examination, it has been noted that the Moon is apparently in the wrong orbit for its size, according to its current assumed density. Astronomy data indicates that the internal regions of the Moon are less dense than the outer, giving rise to the inevitable speculation that it could be hollow. Some of these claims come from the fact that when meteors strike the Moon, it rings like a bell. More specifically, when the Apollo crew, on November 20, 1969, released the lunar module, after returning to the orbiter, the module impact with the Moon caused their seismic equipment to register a continuous reverberation like a bell for more than an hour.

In July of 1970, members of the then Soviet Academy of Sciences, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, proposed the Spaceship Moon Theory. The pseudoscientific theory claims that the Earth’s moon may actually be an alien spacecraft. Vasin and Shcherbakov’s thesis was that the Moon is a hollowed-out planetoid created by unknown beings with technology far superior to any on Earth. Huge machines would have been used to melt rock and form large cavities within the Moon. The Moon would, therefore, consist of a hull-like inner shell and an outer shell made from metallic rocky slag. The “Spaceship Moon” was then placed into orbit around the Earth. Proponents of this theory point to the increased reports and pictures of UFOs taken by NASA on their missions to the moon. It has been found that asteroids and meteors not only create shallow craters on the Moon’s surface, but produce a convex floor to the crater instead of concave as expected, supporting the idea of a rigid shell.

The moon is far older than previously expected, maybe even older than the Earth or the Sun. The oldest age for the Earth is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old, while Moon rocks were dated at 5.3 billion years. The chemical composition of the dust upon which the rocks sit is remarkably different from the rocks themselves. This indicates that the lunar surface may have been moved from somewhere else and placed on the Moon. Some of the Moon’s craters originated internally, yet there is no indication that the Moon was ever hot enough to produce volcanic eruptions. Hundreds of moonquakes are recorded each year that cannot be attributed to meteor strikes. Some of the quakes seem to follow a specific schedule.

The moon’s crust is much harder than originally presumed. When NASA was recorded drilling down a few inches into the Moon’s surface, it appeared that metal shavings were visible. Earth’s moon is the only natural satellite in the Solar System that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit. How does one explain the coincidence that the moon is just the right distance, coupled with just the right diameter, to completely cover the sun during an eclipse? Professional astronomers have been gradually discouraged from investigating a phenomenon that has been reported on the Moon for 1,000 years. It is short-lived light, color, or other changes in the appearance of the lunar surface, referred to as Transient Lunar Phenomena.

Miracle of the Sun

Miracle-Of-Fatima

Starting in May of 1917, something happened to three shepherd children in the town of Fátima, Portugal. The events have become known as Our Lady of Fátima. Starting on May 1, 1917, the children began to describe seeing a woman “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball, pierced by the burning rays of the sun.” The being was reported to have appeared to the children on the 13th day of six consecutive months in 1917, starting on May 13. According to ten year old Lúcia Santo, in the course of her encounters, the woman confided to the children three secrets, now known as the Three Secrets of Fátima. Thousands of people flocked to Fátima and Aljustrel in the ensuing months, drawn by reports of visions and miracles. On three separate occasions before the Miracle of the Sun, the children reported that the Lady had promised to them that she would, on October 13, 1917, reveal her identity and provide a miracle “so that all may believe.”

On October 13, 1917, the Miracle of the Sun was witnessed and reported by 50,000 to 100,000 people in the Cova da Iria fields near Fátima, Portugal. The people in attendance had assembled to observe the publicized event. According to many statements, after a downfall of rain, the dark clouds broke and the sun appeared as an opaque, spinning disc in the sky. It was said to be significantly duller than normal, and to cast multicolored lights across the Earth, the people and the surrounding clouds. The sun was then reported to have careened towards the earth in a zigzag pattern. It was said that the people’s previously wet clothes became “suddenly and completely dry,” as well as the wet and muddy ground that had been previously soaked because of the rain. According to the reports, the event lasted approximately ten minutes.

The Miracle of the Sun was marked by a large amount of angel hair over the land. On July 13, 1917, the lady is said to have entrusted the children with three secrets. These secrets have been highly controversial in the Catholic Church, and have been revealed to the public at different time periods, with the final one coming out in 2000. The First Secret was allegedly a vision of Hell. The Second Secret was a statement that World War I would end and goes on to predict World War II. The second half of the secret includes information about Russia and requests that it become consecrated to the Immaculate Heart. It should be noted that the Second Secret wasn’t revealed until 1941, after World War II had already began.

The majority of the controversy is with the Third Secret. It was revealed in 2000 and includes information about the persecution of Christians in the 20th century that culminated in the failed assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. However, historical references to the Third Secret indicate something else entirely, with information regarding Apocalypse, a great apostasy, and satanic infiltration of the Catholic Church. If you are unfamiliar, apostasy is the formal disaffiliation from, or abandonment of, a religion by a person, basically, criticism of a person’s former religion. In 1980, John Paul II was quoted on the Third Secret. “It should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much. If there is a message, it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the Earth and from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish.”

Solway Firth Spaceman

Solwayfirth

Val Camonica, Italy, is one of the largest valleys of the central Alps, in eastern Lombardy. It is the location of a set of ancient paintings that are believed to depict forgotten deities. The pictures resemble modern day astronauts, despite being painted around 10,000 BC. I can see the resemblance to a space suit, but I am more impressed with the modern day photographic evidence that was captured by the Solway Firth Spaceman photograph. On May 23, 1964, Jim Templeton, a firefighter from Carlisle, Cumberland, took three pictures of his five-year-old daughter while on a day trip to Burgh Marsh, situated near Burgh by Sands and overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria, England.

The only other people reported on the marshes that day were a couple of old ladies, and although cows and sheep would have normally been plentiful, they were huddled together at the far end of the marsh. In the second image captured by Templeton, a white figure can be seen in what looks like a space suit. Templeton insists that he did not see the figure until after his photographs were developed, and analysts at Kodak confirmed that the photograph was genuine. To this day, the picture remains unexplained and a source of international fascination. When the picture was taken, in 1964, human space suits were in their extreme infancy. It has been suggested by some people that the figure is merely someone with their back to the camera, perhaps wearing a hat or helmet.

Upon the national release of the photograph, Jim Templeton claimed that he was visited by two men who, he says, came from Her Majesty’s Government. The men tried to make Templeton admit that he had photographed a person, but he refused. In the same time frame that the picture was taken, a Blue Streak missile launch at the Woomera Test Range, using Cumbrian-built weaponry, was aborted because of two large men who were witnessed on the firing range. The technicians reported that the figures resembled the Solway Firth Spaceman. Ufologists have used the photograph as evidence that extraterrestrial life has influenced the modern day space program, including space suits.

    The first one is a visitor from the future obviously!

    Btw, rael is a dick, dont know how and why peuple believe him..

  • Amrendra

    Enter your comment here.can make out that the list has been made by Bryan. Fantastic list one more time. My favourite. Keep on rocking dude. You always come out with such beautiful and mesmerizing lists.

    • Awaiz

      “And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.” (The Noble Qur’an 18:50) The part about Iblis being an angel was not correct, brother.

  • Awesome list. The moon entry was my favorite….I think. They were all so neat.

    Bryan – you are quickly becoming one of my favorite writers for Listverse. Keep up the great work.

    • Bryan J

      Thanks man,
      I thought the moon stuff was weird as well.

  • QueenWeiner

    Awesome list.

    I wont be going to sleep anytime soon. The one about MIB reminded me of the reports of Black Eyed Kids/Children. I’d go into greater detail about it but after hearing/reading up about them I kid you not I could not fall asleep for a week or two. [Thanks /x/]

  • Carra23

    Try writing a frickin book next time: or better still, employ the same system as 99% of other list compilers – employ the KISS principle: Keep It Short & Simple (or in your case; Keep It Short, Stupid)

    Also, not everything in religion can be explained as “Aliens”

    • as far as i’m concerned nothing in religion can be explained . you can believe with all your heart but you can never prove or explain .

      • chrom3d

        If there are two subjects that if debated upon will have no end will be politics and religion.. Maybe there’s a common connection in these two hmmm..

    • Some things need longer to explain than others. There is a place for long lists too :)

      • fendabenda

        I agree. This was a fascinating read all the way. To Carra23: if a list is too long and/or complicated, you don’t have to read it.

      • Bryan J

        I agree with you Jamie. Statement can be made, but without understandable explanations they mean nothing. Some articles do require longer descriptions.

    • Simon21

      Quite obviously employed by aliens to attempt to prevent the author of this list publicising future conspiracy theories.

      • fendabenda

        LOL one of the Men in Black… :)

    • Jon

      I think you’re annoyed about the topic, but are hiding behind the pretense that the post was too long. Lighten up! No need to personally insult the guy.

      I thought it was a very interesting list, keep them coming!

    • Callum

      We know you’re a scouse but most people can read more than 3 lines before getting bored/distracted/confused, so don’t ruin our fun

  • Loved this , nothing better than conspiracy on a Mon Morning . Only one’s i never heard of is no.1 & 3 with the other entries full of extra details. I find this all plausible and fascinating . There are going to be a lot of critics but honestly a lot of the stuff on this list there is no arguing with . But to me no1 looks like a bee keeper .

    • Number one looks faked to me because the “space man” (or bee keeper, if you like) seems way to high up to just be hanging out behind the girl. I would call bad photoshopping if it was common in the 60s.

      • fendabenda

        Also, it’s true that space suits like that didn’t exist back then, but has anybody heard of Sci-Fi films? They were extremely popular even in the 1950’s. That space-suit could be just a film prop from.. “Plan 768 from by now Utterly Frustrated Out of Space” or something like that.

        • Mac

          I really love this list . Now in 1947 Roswell happen and about 1 or 2 months after the C.I.A was created, Coincidence i think not . I read the Book Day’s after Roswell it was about Col. Phillip Corso . He was not at Roswell he was part of a team at the Pentagon who dealt with RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT and made sure that any technology’s that they could get from reverse engineering would be patented in American company . For example Fiber optics .

      • Belle

        Kodak itself examined the picture ( and negative) and considered them to be genuine so “looks fake to me” isn’t really a strong argument. Btw I live in Burgh by Sands and usually go for a walk in the marshes…I’ve never seen anything extraterrestrial there, I’m glad to say…

  • undaunted warrior 1

    Fantastic list again Bryan, well written and presented, I have always been fascinated with Alien stories

    Thanks

  • Serenna

    awesome! <3

  • cqsteve

    The Men In Black stories have fascinated me for years. I was hoping that the MIB film would be a serious movie about this, but alas, another Will Smith Summer Blockbuster instead.

    • chrom3d

      Beware of the flashing dildo the men in black holds in front of you whenever you see something out of the blue.. It will erase your memory and hide the truth from you.. Aliens are out there with us..

  • Kama

    That is an awesome interesting list.
    Thank you for the long explanations.
    I am always interested in new ‘theories’, after all non so far could really be called the ultimate truth (even thought they all say that they are the one and only truth…) and knowing as many as possible hopyfully will make it easier when one does come true, at least if it happens in my lifetime. :)

  • chrom3d

    Good job on this list! Very interesting and educating.. I appreciate the details and the elaboration of each item, offering good explanation on every variables and different perspectives.. Number 10,9 and 2 reminds me of Sandman by Neil Gaiman, wonder why..

  • OmegaMan

    100 years from now, people are going to laugh on us when they drill the moon surface to a substantial depth.

    Spaceship Moon Theory is same as Flat Earth Theory. But a good enjoyable list nonetheless. And I don’t mind the length of the list. On the contrary, I like it.

    • Nutrimat

      People are laughing at you now… :-p

  • Edskibobble

    #1 Somesay that he came from outer space sometime in the 60’s and that he looks like the back end of a bee keeper. All we know, is that he is called the Stig.

    Apologies to anyone who are not familiar with UK motoring journalism,

    Now I’m going to be all creeped out while I’m working the night shift alone D: Now I want to read about the black eyed kids…but I’ll wait on that until later on (like at 6am)!

  • sharan

    Great list! But in the Men in Black section you have a spelling mistake. You have ” but it a relatively” when it should be “it’s” just saying! Amazing list though!

  • Will Trame

    Another eerie and good list. Reading it reminded me of viewing an “X-Files” episode or one of the old “Invaders” TV series. Some of the entries are controversial, but that’s the way I like them. A notable omission is Ezekiel’s Wheel.

  • murb

    fascinating. best list in a while!

  • Bansey

    Best read on listverse for a while. It was a fascinating read and to imagine some of this as being true is quite scary. I do believe there is life out there but it is being covered up by the Government.

    • Bob

      You sir, are an idiot.

      • You don’t need to know my name

        I have to agree. This is actually one of my top five listverse lists.

  • Name

    What about the fact there’s a lot less dust on the moon than NASA thought there’d be? Might lend some credence to the Spaceship Moon Theory.

    • There isn’t. This is derived from an early earth-based estimate of the rate at which meteoric dust accumulated – which turned out to be many many times too high thanks to extensive sample contamination. Orbital instruments produced far more accurate estimates, but people have been dragging up calculations based on the original lousy estimate ever since.

  • oouchan

    What a fun list! I liked the last entry with the photographs. Almost seems chilling. In my heart of hearts, I believe that aliens won’t come anywhere near us….they’re smarter than that. :)

    Great list!

  • Name

    Great list.
    One interesting mystery that could’ve been included is structures on the Moon, here’s a video supposedly filmed by Armstrong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWkGTJEK0Mc
    There was a site about the authenticity of the video and some pictures, but I couldn’t find it now.

  • Skydiver

    “The idea of evolution has been used to describe the gradual change of traits that living organisms undergo over time, which is related to the environment”

    It’s not an idea, it’s a sound scientific theory. The highest rank any hypothesis can ever achieve when enough evidence and experimentation can confirm it to nearly 100%.

    “but it doesn’t explain how the biological cells of human’s first ancestor were spawned. ”

    Neither does the theory of stellarnucleosynthesis. This is a ridiculous statement. The theory of abiogenesis tries to explain that, and through prediction, testing and evidence, it seems that it is so far, the most plausible explanation.

  • Rob

    There is nothing in Thelema about space aliens, and I don’t believe Crowley ever even wrote about the subject. The Holy Guardian Angel Crowley writes about is a specific concept found in Gnosticism and Ceremonial Magic, and it’s not the same thing as a normal Angel. The modern religion is, as it has always been, a form of Ceremonial Magic and the religion doesn’t deal in space aliens (although the beliefs of different members of course vary). The closest the religion has come to officially dealing with space aliens is the Typhonian Order, formally the Typhonian OTO, an offshoot of Crowley’s Thelemic OTO group founded by former student Kenneth Grant who tried to incorporate the works of Lovecraft, among other things, into his group’s magical work. Still Grant’s view of the Lovecraftian mythos did not strictly adhere to Lovecraft’s cannon, and I don’t believe the Typhonian Order ever seriously believed Chthulu to be a space alien.

    • Hermione Granger eat your heart out ….

    • Auburn Tiger

      That’s really interesting. Someone knows his Aleister.

    • Bryan J

      With the Thelema reference I was pointing to Crowley’s entity named Aiwass and his apparent sub-human qualities. In this specific entry, I make some assumptions surrounding the overall theme of Thelema, people’s current place in society, and the influence of its followers (Jack Parsons). I never found any information that Crowley specifically mentioned Ancient Aliens in my research, which I probably could have mentioned in the entry. The section on Crowley and Parsons was almost taken out of the article before submission.

  • Lifeschool

    Well, I could comment lots about conspiracy lists, but I’ll try to cut it short today. From my point of view, there seems to be a few tiny grains of truth in every theory like these, yet those grains are sometimes hard to reach beyond the layers of new-age mystique. True, there are gov’t spies and secret technology, some say 100 years in advance of those things currently on the market. The moon theory is also not new, and David Icke has nothing but praise for it. Sure it could be possible, especially when you consider that matter is merely condensed energy resonating at a low frequency (to paraphrase Bill Hicks) which makes at appear ‘solid’ to us. Any element of a similar resonance would pass straight through the moon (or the earth) like it didn’t exist – like two holograms moving through each other. Of course we can already change the resonant frequency of matter, that’s how a microwave oven works, so it’s not hard to image a solid object being made ‘change’ to look and operate like a gas.

    Anybody remember Battle of the Planets? That G-force plane could turn itself into a ball of pure fire. [Yeah, I know that’s a hokey example, I was just trying to lighten the mood a little]. Yet once an ‘object’ can be imagined to pass though matter because it exists at a frequency which allows it to do that [like sound waves moving through solid brick walls], then it is less of a leap for the imagination to conseptualise ‘angels and demons’, and ghosts, and things which can inhabit the human body simply by waking into it – and all kinds of other things like telekinesis and teleportation. Well, it’s all there! Make of that what you will.

  • RagingFred

    #10 Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Däniken.

    His theories have been de-bunked and he has been proven to be a fraud. Why people still believe this guy and his ideas is beyond me.

    • mom424

      Was it W.C Fields or Ripley or P.T. Barnum that said, “There’s a sucker born every minute” ?

    • Jerome

      Ragingfred, I’m not completely backing the ancient alien theory but, the idea that out of an immeasurably large universe earth is the only one with self aware intelligent life seems as nuts to me.

  • swapie

    One of the best list so far this year. Well written and researched. Well done and thank you.

  • JimmyNevermind

    Intersesting list.

    On an unrealated note, is Frater a Mormon? Everytime I come to this site every ad on the screen is anout Mormons. Just curious.

    • mom424

      hehe, no. The ad bot obviously thinks Aliens and Mormans go together. Should of course more properly be Scientology…

  • mom424

    Well researched list. Interesting flight into fantasy; because of course that’s what it is. Except The Miracle of the Sun; something very cool happened there. Not that I believe it was a sign from god, but it was definitely something amazing.

    Pretty sure my Grandfather, who helped build the Avro Arrow, would be pi**ed off that you’re giving aliens credit for his/their ingenuity. The Arrow was state of the art Canadian fighter jet scrapped in 1958 due to American security concerns – USA was afraid that the Russians might get hold of the technology and end up with better jets than the Yanks. By the way it was capable of Mach 2 – in the 1950’s. And haha, look who’s responsible for the biggest single leak of classified documents ever. Figures.

    • Lifeschool

      I’m not sure about the Miracle of the Sun. Somehow I imagine folks all looking directly at the sun, watching it until it seemed to wobble and blur; until it looked like a series of visions. Well… that’s a skeptical view, of course. :) But that’s how some stories start. “When the story becomes truth, print the story”; is a line from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Yet, with so many conflicting stories and ‘debunkings’ going on, it’s hard WHAT to believe anymore. :(

      • mom424

        I suppose some sort of mass-hysteria is possible. But soo many people saw it at the same time – I’m thinking some sort of freak atmospheric anomaly. Certainly don’t need any other-worldly explanation for it. Nature often seems magical.

      • undaunted warrior 1

        How you keeping long time no talk ?

        When I was in my late teens 3 friends and myself stood on a street corner in a big city here and we pointed with our fingers more or less in the same direction towards the sky.

        Every now and again we would shake our heads in agreement and keep staring, within 5 min. a middle aged lady asked us what we where looking at and we explained that there was an greyish space ship up there just behind the clouds, moving slowly in an easterly direction.

        After a few seconds one of my pals said ” there it is “and her response was yes yes I can see it.

        To cut a long story short within half an hour there were appox. 12 – 14 people on that street corner all very excited at this non existing alien craft they were looking at.

        To this day I still have that photo in my album.

        • mom424

          The power of suggestion is amazing. How come it doesn’t work on my damn kids?

          And I’m keeping pretty fine – looking forward to spring and time in the garden. You?

        • Lifeschool

          @Undaunted Warrior – That was a great story! I can’t believe you did that! Can’t you see it too??, classic! No need for mass hysteria, just mass delusion. :D We’re doing all about mass manipulation at University, with a focus on how mass propaganda is used to manufacture social behaviour. Your story would make a great case study. Unfortunately, due to political correctness, it is no longer called a “case study”, we have to call it a ‘focal issue’ — I think they deliberately mean to drive us all crazy :P

        • 2muchlistverse

          Can we see the photo?

    • wiseone

      you got this story a little twisted.after the canadian govt. cancelled the project,there was concern from your govt. that the technology could fall into soviet hands,hence all versions were destroyed.it was capable of mach2 as you said,but yyou fail to mention it was powered by 2 american pratt&whitney engines.

      • mom424

        Recently unclassified documents do state that pressure from the US gov’t was the main reason for cancelling the Avro Arrow.

        • wiseone

          please show a sauce for these recently unclassified documents.

  • NedNoodle

    Excellant list, bravo. More like this please

  • drake

    Huh. When I first saw the Solway Firth Spaceman photo I thought it was a sailor, not a spaceman or a spacesuit of some kind.

  • Bassbait

    Perhaps this could help explain why my computer monitor randomly shuts off and back on. Is it alien morse code?

  • Kempahh

    I’m an Acient Astronaut Theorist. :) The Moon Ship is probably my favorite. I work outside at night and stare at that thing all the time. Another big thing you missed about the moon is it’s tidal affect. Without it, life as you know it wouldn’t exist. :) We’re here because of the exact placement of every single body in this solar system (not galaxy) . The two odd-bodies out are the Earth and it’s moon. Earth for obvious reasons, but the moon for it’s origin, orbit, and power. Are these extraterrestrials using eclipses to their advantage? And a very shocking question, IS THE MOON the famed NIBIRU? “I think we should look at solid probability rather than just what’s on the surface.” (-Erich von Daniken) Add me. :) http://www.facebook.com/#!/thekempahh

    • Blue

      You are not a theorist you are a fantasist. Please get this classification absolutely right if you are going to spout nonsense.

      Theories are backed up by empirical evidence and facts. Of which all of this ancient alien nonsense has absolutely no empirical evidence and is based on hearsay and seeing something you wish to believe.

      Fantasies (including religion) are based on belief and faith and have absolutely no place in the theoretical sphere as by definition they have no cold hard facts or empirical evidence to support them only a belief in them.

      If you are going to spout nonsense you will be called out. Much the same way as all creationist nutjobs will be called out.

  • Johnnybegood

    Erich von Däniken is a Eurocentric racist individual. He claims that the pyramids and temples in south america where built by aliens, but when questioned on architecture of the greeks and europeans, he said that those where built by humans and have no alien influence.

    So basically non-whites aren’t capable of architectural wonders without getting help from aliens, but white people are already smart enough.

  • Mayor McCheese

    Awesome list, these lists are always the most interesting to read, they really make you think…

  • dfasd

    Most of this was copied/pasted directly from Wikipedia. Nice hack job.

    • Nightmare

      I was just about to write that then I saw you comment. It’s like the “what you didn’t know that exists on wikipedia” list’

    • Bryan J

      Wikipedia provides resources and references. For this artilce, statements were used from many different Wikipedia pages and other Internet sites, as well as directly written by me.

    • Blue

      Come up with your own list then and show us that you have the correct intelligence level to quote reference material.

      Oh wait, isn’t that what Wikipedia is for, a collection of knowledge/hearsay and actual facts backed up by references at the bottom of each page if it is researched correctly?

      You are a prime Muppet aren’t you?

      Originality is fine, however everyone needs to quote their reference material to back up what they are saying and writing, hence the reason that Wiki is quoted with the commons license.

      There is nothing wrong with using source material to bring knowledge to other people, regardless of how it is written or by whom. If the list writer had not spent time looking in to this and researching it, from whatever means he has chosen, then the vast majority of the readers of this website would have never heard of most of these items and their knowledge would not increase.

      That is the true power of Listverse and the people who read these lists daily, instead of complaining about reference material, refute the points in argument via comment, if you cannot do that then dont comment as it makes you look churlish and ever so slightly ignorant.

  • David

    There is such a thing as flying saucers. During WW Two, Hitler`s Scentists (The one who commited war-crimes and who were secretly smuggled away to America) had a flying saucer project. But it never was invented.

  • Bryan J

    Thanks for the compliments. I decided to write this list after reading an article on the Solway Firth Spaceman. It was fun to explore the world of aliens. I think it is strange that we know so little about the Moon. The Miracle of the Sun thing is pretty weird.

  • Mac

    TOP 3 reason why they won’t come out with the TRUTH about Aliens

    1)- Really GREEDY people still want to make money of OIL . People would be asking question like well E.T doesn’t used oil .

    2)- People would be asking , Does the aliens believe in Jesus ?

    3) – and Most important the USA doesn’t want to admit that they can control the skies above there own country , or that the aliens are Free to go where ever they want on this planet and the US military does not like that .

  • Most of the explanations which require beings from outer space to have intervened in the affairs of humans are just silly. They don’t take physics into account at all, and without that, you’re talking a multi-generational trip from star system somewhere.

    Give me a break!

    We just aren’t that interesting.

    I understand that people require explanations; where did we come from? how did we get here? What I don’t understand is how people who are supposedly of sound mind can just toss out science, ignore all the principles of science, and believe in such malarky!

    I suppose we all have our own weaknesses…I still believe in the tooth fairy.

    • Mac

      Segues – ( quote)-They don’t take physics into account at all.

      Please do some research of you’re own , like read a book or articles .
      Look up what STEPHEN HAWKING has to say about this topic (aliens) and the subject space and time travel .

      • Stephen Hawking – The poster boy for physics. A pity most of the rest of the scientific community regard him as ridiculous when he talks about things like aliens. But anyway just because he said that aliens may exist doesn’t give people the right to go around blaming everything that they can’t understand on aliens. This I can assure you is not what Prof. Hawking had in mind.

        • mac

          It’s cause the scientific community is ridiculous , They used to call Nikola Tesla crazy for saying he discovered wireless technology . IMO scientist are afraid of what they don’t understand .

  • Armadillotron

    I`m not a mad conspiracy theorist, but are the American Government, Military Industrial Complex and Pentagon in league with Aliens?

  • Oh. My. Word.

  • Mimz

    That little girl is adorable!

  • Portia

    My favorite list so far. Well done!

  • great list. I always enjoy new entries to the crime and mystery section. The men in black was abit creepy but that miracle of the sun was just great. really gets your mind going

  • Shakil

    One of the best lists i have read. End of

  • These are nice little theories but some people need to be careful of lists like these. The less intelligent/more gullible amongst us are likely to actually lend credence to some of the theories discussed here.

    For instance the notion that in no. 1 the photographer lied and faked the picture is a lot more likely than it being a photo of a genuine spaceman.

    No. 3 – The moon may be hollow, and yes it does fit quite well over the sun during an eclipse. But does that mean it’s a spaceship? That’s just conjecture with no basis in fact.

    Now I’m not saying that I know for a fact that these theories are nonsense, I’m just saying it’s good to employ a healthy dose of scepticism when dealing with such ideas. Remember Occam’s Razor people!

  • Serenity

    Such a totally awesome list!! ^_^ I love stuff of the supernatural/unexplained and I also love how each subject in the list was throughly explained!

    Oh yeah, @Carra23, “Keep it simple, stupid” is for people too dumb to comprehend anything beyond a three word sentence, if that.

    Anyway, this is a great list and I think more other lists can learn from it.

    Awesome! ^_^

  • ZZZ

    HOW COME ALIENS NEVER WEAR CLOTHES? ISN’T THAT WEIRD?

  • Physics is neat too

    Good list. As for the moon, it does not travel in a perfect orbit around us and is actually drifting away from us a few centimeters a year. Which means that it hasn’t always been “the same diameter as the sun” during eclipses. and actually eventually we will no longer have total eclipses because the moon has drifted too far away and will not be able to cover the entire sun. As for our technology advances in WWII, it really shouldn’t seem so far fetched if you know the history of science before WWII. we had incredible breakthroughs in science in the early 1900’s with some of the most brilliant minds in human history such as Einstein, Bohr, Pauli and so on (The list is quite tremendous, I wonder if it is on this site!). A fundamental understanding of the world around us allows us to to achieve great advances in science.

    • Physics is neat too

      Oh and that Stig comment was brilliant!

  • Fantastic! I heard about the moon theory before but not in the detail the list gave. Anyone know a place for more information on that theory?

  • gollumizer

    about the greys: it could be that the smaller greys are the teenagers of aliens. and the taller ones are of course their parents. you can see how they like to play pranks, and the tall greys are telling them: that’s it! you are grounded for two light years! no intergalactic TV, no telepathic communications, and for the love of zenu…clean up after youselves. stop leaving mutilated dead animals around. when i was your age….blah blah blah

  • Yogi Barrister

    Brilliant list! These days I go from being terrified to giddy, thinking that the world as we know it, is ending.
    Are all those dead whales and a earthquake a sign that this list struck a nerve somewhere?

  • Jason

    Beam me up Scotty!!!

  • Zytozux

    Wow, what a great list. Such a wealth of information. So many lists give just a few bits on a subject, like some awful copy/paste scenario, and barely keep you interested. This one, however, had my full attention. Even if one disagrees with the subject matter this is still one of the most elaborate lists on listverse. I hope to see more like this!

  • fcr

    really great list, ive been studing for years about ancient civilizations, and i’ve read all kind of theories, and to me , before talking about ancient aliens we need to reconsider the amount of time that humans have been on earth, from michael cremo and others, theres enough proof to state that human civilizations have been on earth for millions of years, with at least 4 total extintions, acording to ancient leyends, that would explain the unimaginable technology that help biuld the piramids, temples, advance astronomical knoledge, etc. regarding aliens, my view is that the map is not the territory, and its clear thats something is going on, but people for far away galaxies seem too close to our knowledge, to me its a interdimensional fenomena or intersection of dimensional vibration

    • fcr

      or interdimensional conciousness

  • Brian

    Interesting list, fun subject. Even though the theories are all incredible stupid, still a fun subject.

  • Nelson

    UFO enthusiasts rely on pure speculation and less-than-clear images to back their preposterous claims. Most of it sounds like they are pulling things out of their arse.

  • Npa yah……..?

  • I’m about as certain that there’s intelligent life out there as I can be about any article of faith.

    But the real mystery is that anybody, anybody, anybody, is falling for all ten of these so-called mysteries.

  • Very interesting post.

  • Wow all that shit about the moon was really interesting. There’s another rumor, I think the Disclosure Project talked about it, where the dark side of the moon as some kind of either military apparatus or alien base station.

  • sal

    Dunno about the name. You filled the 10th slot with a bunch of fluff just about the theory, then make religious parallels in the 9th, but quickly jump to the 50s and pretty much stayed within a hundred years into the past. Good list, just a little forced trying to insert the term “ancient alien” into what are recent occurrences and visits.

  • vas

    best list ive seen on listverse for a while

  • ET life form is real and definitely possible. It will not be surprising if they happen to exist a few milleniums before us in some random planet far away, and with their technological advances, vist us on Earth. Absolutely possible and reasonable to believe in.

    Sorry and no disrespect, but religion/angels/demons are just laughable. I laugh literally each time i see reports on their existence.

    • Canadianguy

      Any real evidence? No. The evidence actually points towards this being a product of faulty reasoning, misinterpretation of facts , and general lack of scientific knowledge amongst the general population. Fact: we live millions of light years from the closest planet that can sustain life as we know it (and supposed aliens sighted are always described as anthropomorphous, so…). Yes, space aliens visiting Earth is all made up, just like ghosts, demons, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

      • Callum

        Cool story bro but the nearest planet that could sustain life is a LOT less than “millions of lightyears away”. Firstly it could be possible that there are NO planets that can sustain life. Secondly, it’s entirely possible that there could be planets less than 10-15 lightyears away from Earth. I think you may have confused millions of lightyears with billions of miles

  • dccprez

    This was enjoyable. It’s well written. It is all complete BS but nonetheless entertaining. Thanks for the efforts and for sharing. MTM

  • Awesome site! And a great article.

  • Canadianguy

    The simplest explanation is usually the correct one. In the case of this list, it’s not little green men from space, it’s that humans have a very fertile imagination.

  • Canadianguy

    “Charles Fort’s unpublished 1915 manuscript, novel X, describes how Martian beings or Martian events control life on Earth. Fort ultimately burnt the manuscript, but one surviving quote from it is “The Earth is a farm. We are someone else’s property.””

    Mmm…so what? Craziness written today or a hundred years ago is still craziness. People believe all kinds of crazy things back then, just as they do now. In 1909-1910, my great-grand-mother, the village school teacher, had to reassure the locals that the sky wasn’t falling when they noticed a bright spot visible during the day. It was Haley’s Comet.

  • Jeremi

    Catholic and not opposed morally, religiously, or physically to ancient alien theories. In my personal opinion anyone who attempts to imply that religion, or other “normal” ways of thinking are in contrast to alien and especially ancient alien theories i beg to differ.

    Aliens are not strange or weird and aren’t in any way eliminated from biblical teachings. Christian religion is way more inrealistic than most stories of alien visitation. Kicker is more people believe that Christ died and was raised from the dead than do any form of alien theory… To me there is no separation. In my humble opinion none of us have the knowledge to do anything but thank about our own ideas, the real truth doesn’t exost withought knowledge we don’t have, and likely won’t ever get.

    Best news is that if science and religion could settle differences and work together they could work together to find a conclusion, an answer, a final resting place for lots of ideas.

    Life’s short… Strange/impossible things happened. There are as many theories as crazy people, but without gods/aliens, etc, we get nowhere. Darwin proves a point, but it’s not the point.

    Life had to exist to evolve, and there’s no such thing as magic. Creativity combined with logic is the only thing with unlimited potential.

    • Omar Bongo

      “… there’s no such thing as magic.” Really?

      Magic is just science we don’t understand…YET. Electricity is magic to a primitive civilization. Television? Radio? There’s magic all around. Gravity? Can you explain why it works? Are you telling me that the Special Theory of Relativity isn’t magic? Time dilation is magic. We now have trains that travel ABOVE the tracks. That’s not magic? The computer on which I’m writing these words is magic. At least it is to me, ’cause I can’t write packet-switching code. The laser beam is magic. There ARE people who deeply understand how these things work. Me, I just use ’em ’cause they’re there.

  • Rich Goodrich

    It astounds me that individuals of vast knowledge and intellegence haven’t found all the answers like I have. They can’t say a word about these documanted things I am about to say: Mars Bull Worms, Moon Bull Worms, Earth Bull Worms, Very intellegent life on Mars, the Moon, and aliens working on our South Pole beside a spacecraft 146 miles diameter, Giant Earthlings miles tall called Chain Hunters who left their chains everywhere on Earth. underwater cities, where Nessie is breed and chained with her companions, underground transportation lanes, Cloud Shapers, Sea Dragons and all pyramids emitting plasma messages worldwide, just to start. But that should do for now. I’ve lots more to show. Some are online Google Search: ragartragart then click Images at the top

  • The Spacesip Moon Theory inspires me to write a sci fi novel.

    This is complete bullshit, how can anyone take this as fact? there are absolutely no supporting scientific facts to back up these claims, there’s massive evidence that overwhelms the hollow moon theory by a whole lot, this article doesn’t even list ANY SINGLE SOURCES at all, nowhere. For example ‘ After examination, it has been noted that the Moon is apparently in the wrong orbit for its size’ After what examination? noted by who? when and where? doesn’t say. Doesn’t credit, or point to any source to back it up.

    In regards to part 4, about animal mutilation, it said that at the site where it occurred there were high radiation levels. Then, in the cows liver it had been drained of copper, yet had high levels of potassium, phosphorus, and zinc. So, look at it like a chemical reaction, copper —-> zinc potassium phosphate. I looked that up online, and guess what i found? That chemical reaction is what is used for electronic paramagnetic resonance….that is prolly how the space craft is able to fly. Also, when u see crop circles, don’t they look like the wiring in motherboards? Its prolly a path the ufo has to follow along in order to generate the correct whatever using the things like copper to allow for it to travel. I bet whoever resorts to cow mutilation must have just ran outta gas lol.

      I just did some more research…. and I am right!! Check this out:

      I did some reasearch on paramagnets, and a good example of a paramagnet is myoglobin, which is a component of MAMMAL BLOOD. Paramagnets are used to help retain a lot of energy through resonance, which would be the source of power that UFOs use. :)

    It is believed to have been created by a giant impact between the young Earth and a Mars-sized body.

    The moon is far older than previously expected, maybe even older than the Earth or the Sun.

    How Does this make any sense?

    Sight… WHY does everthing about ancient aliens go from proof to a question of belife in just 5 minutes? You have great theories based on hard proof. Like an ancient Indian nucler war. And what happens? Instead of building up more evidence and actually figure out what happend, they just jump to the conclusion. And the conclusion are so incredible stupid and easy to denonce that even the supporters of the theories feel ashamed. No wonder that there havn’t been any development in the field since the 60-70. Because all you do, is to repeate the same sh__ over and over again and blame it on “the goverment” when you get denonced for the 1000th time. Instead of finding new proof and reconsider the old theories! Even Einstein made mistakes in his theories! So why are the “scolars” on the ancient aliens theories the only ones in the world who never makes mistakes? This provokes me som much that I aqtually cant enjoy a tv-show like “Ancient Aliens” and the interesting questing it raises. Because after 5 min, some “scolar” just jump to some insane conlusion that everyone with memory know is so full of misinteprations that its a standing joke. As the “Scull of Doom”. The quarts are from f…. Europe! Accept it, get over it and find some REAL proof and explanations!!!

    Theories about ancient aliens are really interesting and a lot of speculations are based on true event and facts written in our history. I really recommend you to watch all episodes of Ancient Aliens and check out what some really cool explorers have already discovered about Ancient Aliens. Check out http://www.squidoo.com/ancient-aliens-season-1 and watch the whole season online!

    anyone that believes in the Alien thing is totally and completely deceievd by Satan he can and will change appearence he and his minions are masters at destroying peoples faith, anything to get your mind off of the Living God. There are no aliens it is him and his angels and demons doing these things, if you could see into the spirit world you would be terrified.
    God created everything just look around you. Come on people Wake Up! Jesus Christ died for us on a Cruel Cross, He shed His precious blood for us so we could be saved from certain death and going to HELL!

  • Dr.Boss

    My theory is that the extraterrestrials are a bit further evolved. You’ve got primates on one end and extraterrestrials on the other. They came and bred with the primates which compromised evolution and put forth Man. We’re stripped of what evolutionary traits our ancestors possessed, like telepathy and so forth.

  • Khan

    Great list, however under point number 9 about angles and demons, there is one thing to mention. That is, that in Islam, in the Qur’an iblis/Satan was never an angel, he was a jinn which is another form of life that have lived in the heavens and live among us on earth today. Jinns have free will as we as humans do, and this is why he refused an order of God and became the devil. Angels do not possess free will and therefore iblis would have not been able to refuse Gods wishes.

  • elmermac

    I think you need to check a number of the facts regarding no 3 – Lunar Spaceship Theory.

    Having spoken to a professional astronomer about this fascinating read, it seems that much of these “facts” are wrong.

    “the internal regions of the Moon are less dense than the outer, giving rise to the inevitable speculation that it could be hollow” – there has been plenty of research recently by NASA and others which prove that the moon is not hollow, not even less dense within than on the surface layers. The Moon has a core, therefore it is not hollow. This has been definitively proven using Apollo era data using seismic experiments. We even know the composition of the Moon’s core – primarily liquid iron with a radius of approx 205 miles. http://www.nasa.gov/topics/moonmars/features/luna

    Some of these claims come from the fact that when meteors strike the Moon, it rings like a bell. More specifically, when the Apollo crew, on November 20, 1969, released the lunar module, after returning to the orbiter, the module impact with the Moon caused their seismic equipment to register a continuous reverberation like a bell for more than an hour.

    “Proponents of this theory point to the increased reports and pictures of UFOs taken by NASA on their missions to the moon.” – can you provide sources for this? I can’t find anything reported officially by NASA

    “It has been found that asteroids and meteors not only create shallow craters on the Moon’s surface, but produce a convex floor to the crater instead of concave as expected, supporting the idea of a rigid shell.” perhaps you’re reffering to lunar domes, a type of shield volcano, formed by lava eruptions from beneath the surface – wide, rounded, circular fetures with a gentle slope and rising elevation. Like blisters welling up on the surface http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_dome

    “The moon is far older than previously expected, maybe even older than the Earth or the Sun. The oldest age for the Earth is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old, while Moon rocks were dated at 5.3 billion years.” – not according to NASA, they say the moon is only around 4 billion years old http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/news/shrink

    The chemical composition of the dust upon which the rocks sit is remarkably different from the rocks themselves.

    “Some of the Moon’s craters originated internally, yet there is no indication that the Moon was ever hot enough to produce volcanic eruptions.” It has a liquid iron outer core and is still cooling and we can see evidence of this from newly forming cracks in the surface. So if we rewind it can be seen that the Moon was even hotter before.

    “Hundreds of moonquakes are recorded each year that cannot be attributed to meteor strikes. Some of the quakes seem to follow a specific schedule.” Quakes aren’t caused by meteor strikes on Earth, but by tectonic activity, so that’s explainable. Where’s the reference to apparently scheduled quakes?

    “The moon’s crust is much harder than originally presumed. When NASA was recorded drilling down a few inches into the Moon’s surface, it appeared that metal shavings were visible.” Link? Where is this recorded? Which drilling incident? Some of the Apollo missions had serious problems with drilling, so perhaps the metal came from broken equipments and drill bits?

    “Earth’s moon is the only natural satellite in the Solar System that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit. How does one explain the coincidence that the moon is just the right distance, coupled with just the right diameter, to completely cover the sun during an eclipse?” Yes, it is amazing. But just coincidence. Several thousand years ago it would have been much closer, in a few tens of thousands of years it will be further away from the Earth and won’t be a perfect match for the diameter of the Sun. http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=676

    “Professional astronomers have been gradually discouraged from investigating a phenomenon that has been reported on the Moon for 1,000 years. It is short-lived light, color, or other changes in the appearance of the lunar surface, referred to as Transient Lunar Phenomena.” That’s a new one, sources?

    Regarding animal mutations: I prefer to look for the answers right here on earth. For years now, machines are capable of flying over a land mass and taking a spectroscopic survey of minerals, at least those exposed on the surface. I think that the cows were being mutilated to frighten the landowners into selling their property on the cheap so that large corporations could come in and mine the minerals. The simple answer is often the most reasonable and plausible.

    All of these people that believe that the Myans knewallof these things including the stars, you are totally crazy. They were abunch of indians thta knew nothing and all they had for tools werenot nearly enough to make all of the things they were supposed tohave made. The Myans knew NOTHING. It was Alienvisitors and nothing else. I just hope that you wake up one of thesedays. I really love watching TV and hearing all of this BS and wondering who made all of this.

    Hi, Thelemite here. Just wanted to point out that most Thelemites do not believe Aiwass was an alien, more likely a part of Crowleys’ consciousness. While it may be possible, it distracts from the idea that man is responsible for their spiritual destinies and do not require an outside force for aid to reach enlightenment. The “Kingdom of Heaven is within” as they say.

    Also while the depiction of Lam looks a bit like an alien, it was actually meant to resemble drawings of enlightened Buddhists monks, who were often drawn with large heads. The head is also in the shape of the pineal gland, which is significant.

    Do demons exist? According to the original Genesis The answer is yes. God created Adam and Lillith. Lillith was a demon. Since Adam and Lillith were both created of the earth at the same time in the same way they were both demons. Thus we are the demons. And this is Hell. If you recall God cast Satan out of the heavens and to Hell. Since he is shown in the apple tree in the Garden of Eden the earth is shown to be Hell. Satan and man didn’t have to be alien et’s to exist. Space spores and bacteria could easily of been the aliens which started life on this planet. From meteorites. Naturally once life starts it would attract the attention of any alien et’s that might be out in space. If any. If you really want to see a angel go to the hospital nursery. There you will find many. Infants and young children. Jesus showed us they are angels in saying they are without sin and we need to seek to be as them. Without sin. The church changed all that and led us to see what it wanted us to see. It’s lies. We are the demons so it makes the demons out as being condemnrd souls within us. Man don’t accept the fact that he is the demon. Nor that the angels are merely the innocent children and that we are supposed to be as innocent as them. Once we grow up the innocense is gone and we don’t want it back for we love sin. It becomes our life. Thus the bible shows the adult came first. Not the child. Which also answers the unanswered question of which came first, the chicken or the egg. The chicken. The adult and not the egg. They call that mutation I believe.

    “Imagination is one of the most powerful tools in humanity’s evolutionary struggle for survival. As a race, we are hardwired to consider important concepts, such as the creation of life on Earth and the history of people on this planet.”

    Wtf?! How would you say those nomads, who were our ancestors, who never had any system of beliefs and tradition? And being hardwired to create speculations using primitive science and speculations because it that is crucial to our survival? Stupid author.

    The Ifugao rice terraces of the Philippines were suppossedly constructed initially more than 2,000 years ago without the use of machine by the sparse population of the Ifugao tribe. Really? Rice in that part of the world during those times when hunting and forest food harvesting was the popular means of survival? There must be a missing part of the story here. Would it be possible that it’s initially a mining site by somebody who had advance equipment then converted later on as rice paddies by Ifugaos? Then eventually the style of mountain re-shaping was maybe adopted by the locals as a means to establish efficient rice production? just thinking aloud.

    Just how is the Moon in the “wrong” orbit for its size and density? Neither has anything to do with it. And those concave crater floors? Cause by splashing, just like what happens when a raindrop hits flat water: the material is pushed out then some of it flows back to form a peak. In the case of a meteor impact the material is molten rock and it freezes.

    I can accept the possibility of alien visitation. Why not? But a lot of what’s listed here is nonsense. There’s no evidence that we somehow progressed after WW2 thanks to alien technology; everything, from the transistor to the laser to the SR-71 and fiber optics and all of it, was the result of well-documented research and development.

    The moon is not older than the earth. The dates cited are those for the oldest rocks on the surface of both bodies. Because the moon does not (and never has had) tectonic resurfacing, the rocks on the surface are those that have always been on the surface. The earth, however, has been resurfaced by tectonic activity. The age cited for the earth is the age of the oldest rocks that remain on/have been identified on the surface. This is no indicative of the age of the earth. Older rocks have simply been subducted (removed from the surface and brought down into the mantle) and are no longer in existence.

    Brilliant summary of the Ancient Alien theory and supportive evidence. However I feel the theory has been poorly composed.
