Houston, you go for landing. Over.

speldo 00:05
00:07

Rodger at Tango for landing 3000 ft.

speldo 00:09
00:12

July 20th, 1969.

speldo 00:13
00:16

Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin,

speldo 00:16
00:19

became the first man to land on the moon.

speldo 00:20
00:23

It's one small step for man...

speldo 00:24
00:24

... One...

speldo 00:25
00:27

... giant leap for mankind.

speldo 00:28
00:31

Just like aliens, visiting from another world.

speldo 00:36
00:39

It have been stuff of science fiction.

speldo 00:39
00:40

Now...

speldo 00:40
00:43

everything that could be imagined,

speldo 00:43
00:44

seem possible.

speldo 00:45
00:49

If mankind could travel the skies and go to other planets,

speldo 00:50
00:52

Why couldn't beings from other planets,

speldo 00:52
00:53

visit the Earth?

speldo 00:55
00:58

A myths away of modern UFO sightings,

speldo 00:58
01:00

a new theory emerge.

speldo 01:01
01:02

That aliens...

speldo 01:02
01:04

... visited Earth in antiquety,

speldo 01:04
01:07

and were regarded as Gods.

speldo 01:08
01:09

But if that were true,

speldo 01:09
01:11

Wouldn't there be proof?

speldo 01:11
01:14

Perhaps... there was.

speldo 01:14
01:16

All we needed to do,

speldo 01:16
01:17

was open our eyes...

speldo 01:18
01:20

... and, our imaginations.

speldo 01:21
01:24

The proof perhaps, was all around us.

speldo 01:25
01:27

WHO WERE THEY?

speldo 01:27
01:29

WHY DID THEY COME?

speldo 01:29
01:32

WHAT DID THEY LEAVE BEHIND?

speldo 01:34
01:36

WHERE DID THEY GO?

speldo 01:36
01:38

WILL THEY RETURN?

speldo 01:58
02:03

In May 2008, a startling proclamation was issued by the Vatican.

speldo 02:03
02:06

For the first time in It's two thousand years history,

speldo 02:07
02:09

the Catholic Church acknowledge the possibility,

speldo 02:09
02:13

that intelligent life, could exist on other planets.

speldo 02:13
02:15

and that a belief in extraterrestrials,

speldo 02:15
02:18

did not contradict a belief in God.

speldo 02:19
02:23

Which means of course that we are now entering an age...

speldo 02:24
02:28

... in which the universe is beginning to be conceived in diferent ways

speldo 02:28
02:30

from what it was before.

speldo 02:30
02:34

And if it's reality for us, why could not have been a reality

speldo 02:34
02:39

for other... beings in the universe who could have visited... our Earth,

speldo 02:40
02:43

and perhaps guided culture in ancient times.

speldo 02:44
02:49

But just what sparked, the sudden turn around in religious thought,

speldo 02:49
02:53

Could the Church have been influenced by recent scientific discoveries?

speldo 02:54
02:58

In 2002, the Mars oddissey spacecraft,

speldo 02:58
03:02

detected enormous reservours of ice, beneath the martian surface,

speldo 03:03
03:06

The presence of ice, and the posibility of water,

speldo 03:06
03:11

suggested that life can be sustained, or even generated, on another planet.

speldo 03:13
03:17

After decades of orbiting space shuttles and robotic rovers,

speldo 03:17
03:22

the idea of sending man back into space, to Mars and beyond,

speldo 03:22
03:24

ignited the imagination...

speldo 03:25
03:29

and brought that the notion, that mankind and alien beings,

speldo 03:29
03:31

had cross paths before.

speldo 03:36
03:41

In 1968, just one year before Neil Armstrong's epic space flight,

speldo 03:42
03:46

a book was published that forever changed the way many in the scientific,

speldo 03:46
03:50

religious and creative communities, would view their home planet.

speldo 03:52
03:55

Written by Swiss author Erik Von Daniken...

speldo 03:55
03:59

"Chariots of the Gods", attempted to prove that alien explorers,

speldo 03:59
04:02

have visited the Earth thousands of years ago.

speldo 04:03
04:08

When I was a young man, I was educated as a strict catholic in a boarding school.

speldo 04:08
04:12

and then there, we had to make translations of parts of the bible.

speldo 04:12
04:14

Greek to Latin, Latin to German.

speldo 04:14
04:16

For example, the First Book of Moses:

speldo 04:17
04:20

"Before the Lord descends of the Holy Mountain,

speldo 04:20
04:24

Moses was ordered to construct a gate around the mountain,

speldo 04:24
04:27

otherwise the Israelites will be dammaged".

speldo 04:28
04:30

I was shocked. I said: "This is impossible,

speldo 04:30
04:34

My God, he will never use first a gate to protect himself,

speldo 04:34
04:37

or to protect the Israel". What are they talking about?

speldo 04:38
04:40

And now the work started.

speldo 04:40
04:43

I've started to read thousands of pages,

speldo 04:43
04:46

of the beginning of religions, of every mythology...

speldo 04:46
04:47

It's always the same story,

speldo 04:47
04:50

of course with different names, with different heroes,

speldo 04:51
04:54

"Somebody descends, from the sky, to the humans,

speldo 04:55
04:57

Our forefathers could not undestand,

speldo 04:57
05:00

they believed that these are some gods".

speldo 05:00
05:02

I was shocked, I asked the question:

speldo 05:02
05:08

"Were primitive human influenced by extraterrestrials, not gods?"

speldo 05:08
05:11

And if it all was like I suggested, Where's the proof?

speldo 05:12
05:15

So you start trying to find at least indications,

speldo 05:15
05:19

thats what I have done now for at least 45 years.

speldo 05:19
05:22

You have pictorial evidence, you have artifacts and archeology,

speldo 05:22
05:25

and you have what's come out of the old literature,

speldo 05:25
05:28

hundreds of indications, which you cannot deny anymore.

speldo 05:29
05:34

What it means is that we need new explanations for human origins.

speldo 05:35
05:39

that perhaps we are not alone in the universe,

speldo 05:39
05:42

and that human-like beings came to this planet

speldo 05:42
05:44

from some other planet,

speldo 05:44
05:46

elsewhere in the cosmos.

speldo 05:46
05:48

I think thats a very good idea of myself.

speldo 05:49
05:52

A really excited people was at a new way of looking at the past,

speldo 05:52
05:55

looking at ancient civilizations.

speldo 05:55
06:00

And it put this very modern space age spin to the whole thing.

speldo 06:03
06:06

"Chariots of the Gods" caused a sensation,

speldo 06:07
06:08

fuelled in a no small part

speldo 06:08
06:12

by the popular response to books like Frank Herbert's "Dune"

speldo 06:12
06:15

Television shows like "Star Trek",

speldo 06:15
06:19

and fictious films like "2001: A Space Odyssey"

speldo 06:20
06:24

The time was right, because everybody was talking of posible space travel,

speldo 06:24
06:26

of posibility of extraterrestrials,

speldo 06:26
06:29

So it's all wonderful coming together, but it was not planned.

speldo 06:31
06:35

After a Swiss newspaper printed excerpts on a weekly basis,

speldo 06:36
06:40

More than 10,000 copies of the book was sold before ever hitting the market,

speldo 06:40
06:44

So it was a running best-seller starting in Switzerland first,

speldo 06:44
06:47

Then going over to Germany and then the rest of the world.

speldo 06:47
06:50

They have to print and print and print and print.

speldo 06:50
06:52

Absolutely incredible.

speldo 06:54
06:58

In 1970, a feature length documentary was released to theathers.

speldo 06:58
07:01

Followed by dozens of best-selling books,

speldo 07:01
07:04

and growing legions of fans and supporters.

speldo 07:05
07:08

"Chariots of the Gods", was tremendously influental,

speldo 07:09
07:11

It somehow spoke to people, who want to believe.

speldo 07:12
07:13

When I was a boy,

speldo 07:13
07:16

"Chariots of the Gods" was one of books I first read,

speldo 07:16
07:20

I mean I ripped it apart, I digest it I couldnt get enough of it.

speldo 07:21
07:22

I just fell in love with that book,

speldo 07:22
07:26

'cos it really opened up all kinds of new questions,

speldo 07:26
07:31

and Von Daniken was able to point at many anomalies in history,

speldo 07:31
07:35

that the mainstream archaeologists can't answer very well.

speldo 07:35
07:38

He had what was a revolutionary new idea.

speldo 07:39
07:43

That of "Gods" from outer space coming to the planet,

speldo 07:43
07:45

helping create civilization.

speldo 07:45
07:48

When I first read "Chariots of the Gods"

speldo 07:49
07:53

I couldn't put that book down, because it answered

speldo 07:53
07:57

a whole bunch of questions, that I had.

speldo 07:57
08:03

And it was a great combination of archeology and adventure.

speldo 08:04
08:09

It's just a wonderful way to see the world and pursue this ancient mysteries.

speldo 08:10
08:15

And it trully was I think the catalyst for what people like I do today,

speldo 08:15
08:19

and that is to talk about the mysteries, and the unusual and the paranormal.

speldo 08:19
08:23

He paved the way for lot of us to talk about these strange stories,

speldo 08:24
08:25

and that continues to grow

speldo 08:25
08:28

and it's gonna get bigger and bigger and bigger.

speldo 08:28
08:34

People want answers, to questions that they can't answer themselves.

speldo 08:38
08:42

But in despite of the book's enormeous popularity, or perhaps because of it,

speldo 08:43
08:46

Von Daniken's theories were scorned by scientists,

speldo 08:46
08:48

and jeered at by the theologians.

speldo 08:49
08:53

Of course, it created a storm of controversy,

speldo 08:53
08:56

I was completely attacked, specially by the scientific news papers.

speldo 08:56
08:58

They said "Come on, he's just telling a story,

speldo 08:58
09:01

hes a liar or he's a fraud" or whatever.

speldo 09:01
09:04

There is no single piece of evidence that Von Daniken puts forward,

speldo 09:05
09:10

that cannot be attributed to human ingenuity, technology and development.

speldo 09:10
09:14

Don't try to reduce the scriptures to a science book.

speldo 09:14
09:16

Or don't try to reduce the scriptures

speldo 09:16
09:19

to an explanation of a modern world of today.

speldo 09:19
09:22

I don't expect that the scientific community now

speldo 09:22
09:24

embraces and kisses me

speldo 09:24
09:26

"Oh wonderful, great you did!"

speldo 09:26
09:29

We have to live with critics, this is normal.

speldo 09:29
09:31

"Chariots of the Gods" was full of speculation,

speldo 09:31
09:34

I had 238 question marks.

speldo 09:35
09:37

Nobody read the question mark.

speldo 09:37
09:40

They always said: Mr. Von Daniken is saying...

speldo 09:40
09:43

I did not say, I asked the questions,

speldo 09:43
09:45

Would that be a posibility?

speldo 09:45
09:49

At in "Chariots of the Gods", I made clear difference between a speculations...

speldo 09:49
09:50

... and facts.

speldo 09:52
09:56

But as cotroversial, as many of Von Daniken theories are...

speldo 09:56
09:59

... believers point, to tangible evidence.

speldo 10:00
10:04

How for example, could a centuries-old map, chart a land-mass,

speldo 10:04
10:06

which has only recently been discovered?

speldo 10:06
10:08

Would tent to indicate that the map

speldo 10:08
10:11

was made in a time

speldo 10:11
10:14

when Antartica was ice free.

speldo 10:14
10:16

which would be...

speldo 10:16
10:18

many millions of years ago.

speldo 10:18
10:21

And how could a primitive civilization,

speldo 10:21
10:23

know how to harness electricity?

speldo 10:23
10:25

or even build a computer?

speldo 10:25
10:28

this was * out to finding a jet airplane...

speldo 10:28
10:29

... in the tomb of King Tut.

speldo 10:30
10:33

And just who, were this mysterious designs,

speldo 10:33
10:37

only visible from high altitude, intended for?

speldo 10:37
10:40

The signs are made for somebody who flies,

speldo 10:40
10:42

Theres no way out of this.

speldo 10:44
10:46

Could Von Daniken's theory,

speldo 10:46
10:49

that ancient gods were really alien visitors,

speldo 10:49
10:52

contain any serious scientific merit?

speldo 10:53
10:56

The answer involves a search around the world.

speldo 10:57
10:59

and even, right before our eyes.

speldo 11:07
11:09

If alien beings from other planets,

speldo 11:09
11:12

have visited the Earth thousands of years ago.

speldo 11:12
11:16

how our ancient ancestors have tried to communicate with them?

speldo 11:19
11:23

And wouldnt there be some physical evidence of the time they spent here?

speldo 11:25
11:28

One answer may lie in the NAZCA desert of Peru.

speldo 11:29
11:31

There, at top an area plateau

speldo 11:31
11:33

thats stretches for nearly 50 miles.

speldo 11:34
11:38

Countless geometric patterns and figures decorates the landscape.

speldo 11:45
11:48

You fly over this desert and you see some lines.

speldo 11:48
11:54

The lines look like air strips, they start abruptly, they end abruptly.

speldo 11:59
12:02

The longest of it, it's 33 kilometers,

speldo 12:02
12:05

right away, not one curve, just incredible.

speldo 12:05
12:08

and ending in one of this so called air strips.

speldo 12:12
12:15

In the mixture of large lines and small lines

speldo 12:15
12:17

you see gigantic figures on the ground.

speldo 12:17
12:18

Figures of fishes,...

speldo 12:19
12:20

... monkeys,...

speldo 12:21
12:22

... spiders,...

speldo 12:24
12:24

... apes.

speldo 12:25
12:27

But at such over dimensional size,

speldo 12:27
12:30

that you can see them only from the air.

speldo 12:33
12:35

People built them, or somebody built them,

speldo 12:36
12:38

hundreds and hundreds of years ago.

speldo 12:38
12:41

perhaps maybe even thousands of years ago.

speldo 12:41
12:44

That could be signs of "Hello up there!",

speldo 12:44
12:47

"Here we are!". It's something.

speldo 12:50
12:53

Various disputed explanations suggest,

speldo 12:53
12:56

that the lines could have been used for irrigation dtches,

speldo 12:56
12:58

giant astronomical calendars,

speldo 12:58
13:02

or pathways, perhaps used for religious workship.

speldo 13:02
13:06

Looking at NAZCA from the air,

speldo 13:06
13:08

it looks like...

speldo 13:08
13:09

... an airport,

speldo 13:09
13:10

It really does!

speldo 13:11
13:14

Because you have all this... bands,

speldo 13:14
13:17

wide bands, that look like air strips that are...

speldo 13:17
13:19

... lay on top of each other,

speldo 13:19
13:23

but you also have this gigantic long straight lines,

speldo 13:23
13:25

that go for miles and miles,

speldo 13:25
13:27

over valleys, over mountains.

speldo 13:28
13:32

So once again you... you got this idea like: "Ok, people are creating this...

speldo 13:33
13:34

but, What is the reason?

speldo 13:35
13:36

Is it to show these...

speldo 13:36
13:41

... gods and aerial vehicles "land here"...

speldo 13:41
13:42

kind of that thing?

speldo 13:42
13:46

Because we just dont have a good idea of: Why...

speldo 13:46
13:48

people would do this?

speldo 13:48
13:52

And it really does seem that they trying to signal people...

speldo 13:53
13:57

... who are in the air, in space or flying around our planet.

speldo 14:01
14:02

During World War II,

speldo 14:02
14:07

American troops created air bases on remote Pacific islands.

speldo 14:09
14:12

To natives who had never witness advanced technology,

speldo 14:12
14:15

the sight of giant metal birds touching down,

speldo 14:15
14:17

looked to them as if the gods themselves

speldo 14:17
14:20

had turned the earth into a planetary pitstop.

speldo 14:22
14:26

They would see this big planes land and it was all technology that...

speldo 14:26
14:28

...that...just out of the sky.

speldo 14:28
14:30

They didn't know how these things work,

speldo 14:30
14:32

but they could see them land.

speldo 14:32
14:33

And what they like about it?

speldo 14:34
14:37

Was, they were getting free stuff, they were getting cargo.

speldo 14:39
14:41

Suddenly when the war was over,

speldo 14:41
14:44

all this air stripes were abandon and everyone left.

speldo 14:44
14:48

And the islanders scratched their heads and they all said to themselves:

speldo 14:48
14:52

"Wow, wasn't it great when all these planes came out the sky and

speldo 14:52
14:54

gave us free cans of corn, beef and stuff?

speldo 14:54
14:56

We really like that cargo.

speldo 14:58
15:01

Entire religions... sprung out from this.

speldo 15:01
15:06

were priests actually said: "Yes, you know, that was our dead ancestors,

speldo 15:06
15:09

sending us cargo”. So what they did then...

speldo 15:09
15:12

was they begin to going to the old airstripes,

speldo 15:12
15:15

and they would build mock wooden airplanes,

speldo 15:15
15:18

to try and get those planes to come back...

speldo 15:18
15:21

... from the sky and deliver the cans of corn beef to them again.

speldo 15:22
15:27

As so, you can see how an analogy with modern cargo cults.

speldo 15:27
15:30

plays exactly into the ancient astronaut scenario.

speldo 15:30
15:33

where something like this could have easily happened in the past,

speldo 15:33
15:37

and entire religions built around the ancient astronaut.

speldo 15:43
15:45

But gigantic geroglyphs

speldo 15:45
15:48

aren't the only mystery surrounding NAZCA.

speldo 15:50
15:52

I was flying over NAZCA for days,

speldo 15:52
15:55

hanging out of the aircraft with the camera.

speldo 15:55
15:56

and shooting and shoting and shoting,

speldo 15:57
16:00

I have more or less about 4000 pictures of NAZCA, this is really...

speldo 16:00
16:01

... fascinating.

speldo 16:01
16:05

You see, this is one of the picture which proof that this mountain

speldo 16:05
16:07

was made flat artificially.

speldo 16:07
16:10

because you compare it with the mountain around there,

speldo 16:10
16:12

there the mountains * from both side.

speldo 16:13
16:16

Here is goes flat, this is absolutely incredible. This is...

speldo 16:16
16:20

... one of the most craziest pictures I made about NAZCA.

speldo 16:21
16:23

The crazy thing is... the ruble,

speldo 16:23
16:26

the remains, of that summit

speldo 16:26
16:28

or a mountain top... gone!

speldo 16:28
16:31

It's nowhere, it not in the valley down below.

speldo 16:31
16:35

It's nowhere in the region, What happend to it?

speldo 16:35
16:41

Because all the mountains around it, have their summits, it's there!

speldo 16:41
16:46

And then you have other mountains that are as flat as a table,

speldo 16:47
16:51

with bands on top that look like runaways.

speldo 16:52
16:53

Another question:

speldo 16:54
16:56

Why would visiting ETs...

speldo 16:56
16:59

be drawn to the bone dry desert of Peru?

speldo 17:00
17:05

Let's just say hypothetically, that spaceship arrives,

speldo 17:05
17:06

here on Planet Earth,

speldo 17:06
17:11

and you want to quickly find out what this planet consist of...

speldo 17:12
17:17

NAZCA will be the perfect place to go and visit for some sampling

speldo 17:17
17:19

and for some experimentation.

speldo 17:19
17:25

because NAZCA's still today is one of the most abandoned areas in the world

speldo 17:25
17:27

regarding raw materials.

speldo 17:28
17:29

There you find everything,

speldo 17:29
17:30

You find gold,

speldo 17:30
17:33

you find... uranium...

speldo 17:33
17:38

What have you. It's basically the cliffnotes of planet Earth.

speldo 17:38
17:42

You go to NAZCA and you immediatly know everything about

speldo 17:42
17:44

what our planet consist of,

speldo 17:45
17:47

because all the raw materials,

speldo 17:47
17:51

converge there at high volumes.

speldo 17:59
18:01

Why do we have to believe that this simple cannot be

speldo 18:01
18:04

an expression of an artistic impulse, you know?

speldo 18:04
18:06

Is it really that outlandish to believe that...

speldo 18:06
18:07

you know, that... that...

speldo 18:07
18:13

these natives in Peru, might have wanted to create some large scale work of art?.

speldo 18:13
18:17

And to say that such a large scale work of art couldn't be created merely...

speldo 18:17
18:19

for the posibility of having created it,

speldo 18:19
18:23

rather than the NAZCA lines are so inhumanly vast,

speldo 18:23
18:27

That can only be admired by people who are capable of flight.

speldo 18:27
18:30

Well you know you can say the same thing about the Great Wall of China.

speldo 18:30
18:33

and yet the Great Wall of China has a purpose

speldo 18:33
18:35

that is... that is political, that is martial.

speldo 18:37
18:41

Somebody might have walked the NAZCA lines as a spiritual labyrinth

speldo 18:41
18:43

in the shape of a spiritual totemic object

speldo 18:44
18:47

and where in their own way supose to get a kind of epiphany from that.

speldo 18:49
18:51

The fact that we do not understand the purpose of a thing.

speldo 18:51
18:54

opens into tremendous speculations.

speldo 19:00
19:04

NAZCA and the NAZCA figures make no sign

speldo 19:04
19:06

seen from the earth.

speldo 19:07
19:09

You have to flight over it.

speldo 19:09
19:12

The signs are made for somebody who flight.

speldo 19:12
19:14

Theres is no way out of this.

speldo 19:14
19:17

I hope archeology sooner or later will come to a similar conclusion.

speldo 19:24
19:28

But if visitors from other planets were thought to be Gods,

speldo 19:28
19:30

Wouldn't there be written accounts of them?

speldo 19:30
19:34

Perhaps the answer can be found, right in front of us.

speldo 19:34
19:36

In one of the most shockin places...

speldo 19:36
19:38

... of all.

speldo 19:44
19:50

Ironically, Erik Von Daniken's firm believe that Earth has been visited in the past

speldo 19:50
19:51

by beings from other planets,

speldo 19:52
19:55

It's entirly consistent with his belief in God and the Bible.

speldo 19:57
20:00

It is merely a question of interpretation.

speldo 20:02
20:07

We must understand, I was a very very deep believer in God,

speldo 20:07
20:11

By the way I'm still a believer in God. I never lost my God.

speldo 20:12
20:17

But for a young man, my God had to be almighty,

speldo 20:17
20:20

My God will never need a vehicle in which to move around,

speldo 20:20
20:24

a vehicle to go from point A to point B.

speldo 20:26
20:29

In where Christians refer to as the Old Testament,

speldo 20:29
20:34

There are in fact several accounts of God and his angels visiting the Earth.

speldo 20:36
20:40

Sometimes these visitatons are accompanied by tremendous noise,

speldo 20:40
20:42

and clouds of billowing smoke.

speldo 20:47
20:49

In the book of Ezekiel for example,

speldo 20:49
20:54

the profet claims that he witnessed a visitation by heavenly beings.

speldo 20:54
20:58

coming down from the skies, aboard of a fantastic flying machine.

speldo 20:59
21:01

As far as Von Daniken is concerned,

speldo 21:02
21:05

It's a highly detail description, of an alien sighting.

speldo 21:06
21:11

This is incredible, Ezekiel not only describes what he see,

speldo 21:11
21:13

He also describes what he hears.

speldo 21:15
21:19

He describes the whole thing as been splenderness of God

speldo 21:19
21:24

The prophet also details several four-faced winged creatures,

speldo 21:24
21:26

who appeared in a likeness of man,

speldo 21:27
21:30

and who traveled upon a glimming wheel device.

speldo 21:30
21:34

Insight the splendors of God, theres was something like a throne.

speldo 21:34
21:36

and on this throne was a being sitting

speldo 21:36
21:41

looking like a human in glitterin' clothes.

speldo 21:41
21:46

And beneath it, he saw some vehicles, he saw some wings,

speldo 21:46
21:48

He describes the noise of the wings,

speldo 21:48
21:52

He describes the noise of the wings like a thundering of a waterfall,

speldo 21:57
21:59

Ezekiel saw a wheel within a wheel

speldo 22:00
22:04

this sounds more high-tech than supernatural,... and...

speldo 22:04
22:08

... we can't supose that people 3000 years ago,

speldo 22:08
22:13

would understand the difference between supernatural and high-tech.

speldo 22:14
22:17

But what if there is more to Ezekiel's heavenly visions,

speldo 22:17
22:20

than the imaginative insights of a religious man?

speldo 22:21
22:24

What if there was a scientific foundation for them?

speldo 22:26
22:31

Once I had the opportunity of meeting, and spending time and traveling with...

speldo 22:31
22:34

a gentleman by the name of Joseph Blumrich.

speldo 22:35
22:38

He was a senior chief engineer at NASA,

speldo 22:38
22:42

First involved in the Mariner expedition to Mars.

speldo 22:42
22:47

He was also in charge of the landing gear for the Mariner spaceship.

speldo 22:47
22:49

And he told me himself,

speldo 22:49
22:54

the idea of the design used for the Mariner spaceship,

speldo 22:54
22:57

that landed on Mars, came to him...

speldo 22:57
23:00

from the reading of the biblical text in which

speldo 23:00
23:03

they talk about wheels within wheels,

speldo 23:03
23:07

So here you have another example of the person of curiosity, who conceives...

speldo 23:08
23:09

... of this ideas.

speldo 23:12
23:16

Another biblical figure who continues to fascinating Von Daniken...

speldo 23:17
23:18

... is the character of Enoch.

speldo 23:19
23:21

Enoch is not part of the Bible,

speldo 23:22
23:26

In the Bible, in the Old Testament you find maybe just one phrase about Enoch.

speldo 23:26
23:27

Thats all.

speldo 23:27
23:29

But among the apocryphy texts,

speldo 23:30
23:33

there are volumes and volumes if you know them.

speldo 23:33
23:35

You find the Book of Enoch.

speldo 23:35
23:38

Enoch is the first person in antiquiety,

speldo 23:38
23:43

Who writes in the 1st person: "I did, I hear, I was there".

speldo 23:43
23:48

In one of the ancient texts, this grand-grandfather of Noah,

speldo 23:48
23:52

Is said to have been taken away by God for 300 years.

speldo 23:53
23:55

He was taken up to the sky,

speldo 23:55
23:58

up there he meets the highest,

speldo 23:58
24:01

the so called highest, in religion they called it "God"

speldo 24:01
24:06

He meets the highest, and the highest fess to his servants:

speldo 24:06
24:09

"You teach this young man in our language,

speldo 24:09
24:13

and then you teach him writing, so he writes books",

speldo 24:13
24:14

Of course,...

speldo 24:14
24:17

... he knows all these foreigners by name,

speldo 24:17
24:19

he quotes them by name.

speldo 24:19
24:21

He knows their profession,

speldo 24:21
24:24

he knows wich of these extraterrestrials, were the astronomers.

speldo 24:24
24:27

So, Enoch is the only and first person,

speldo 24:27
24:28

thousand of years ago,

speldo 24:28
24:31

who give some of the names of the extraterrestrials,

speldo 24:31
24:34

and give some of their professions. How is this possible?

speldo 24:34
24:38

We have an eyewitness, and nobody speaks about it.

speldo 24:38
24:40

So, I really was confused.

speldo 24:42
24:44

That... that would be the argument,

speldo 24:44
24:46

that... that the followers of Von Daniken would say.

speldo 24:46
24:50

Why is so absurd for aliens to come when is completly acceptable for God...

speldo 24:50
24:52

... to intervene in human history.

speldo 24:53
24:55

The difference is...

speldo 24:55
24:58

Von Daniken's arguing that aliens came and gave...

speldo 24:58
25:01

technologies to people to advance those cultures.

speldo 25:02
25:05

So basically they gave objects, they gave new ideas and new technologies,

speldo 25:05
25:08

and then those cultures advanced because of them.

speldo 25:08
25:13

Or as... at least in the Bible. It's not like God gave...

speldo 25:13
25:17

a human kind, a magic watch, you know, or a new missile.

speldo 25:17
25:20

that they can use to defeat their enemies.

speldo 25:20
25:23

Hum... God gives instructions, at least in Bible records.

speldo 25:23
25:28

God gives instructions on how to live, but not on how to build new devices

speldo 25:28
25:31

that further or advance of an specific culture.

speldo 25:33
25:36

Can we like an Ezekiel's Chariot to a UFO?

speldo 25:37
25:39

The ancients used myth,

speldo 25:40
25:45

and metaphore and images to describe their experience of God.

speldo 25:45
25:48

I think what we don't wanna fall to is...

speldo 25:48
25:50

a type of fundamental literalism.

speldo 25:50
25:54

The stories of the Old Testament emerge out of the people of that time.

speldo 25:54
25:59

Out of their own context to make sense of their experience of God.

speldo 25:59
26:02

We can gain insight by reading the Old Testament,

speldo 26:02
26:04

and reading about Ezekiel's Chariot.

speldo 26:05
26:09

But it's not to draw a strict analogy between Ezekiel's Chariot and a UFO.

speldo 26:14
26:17

When all of these stories were written down,

speldo 26:18
26:21

Writing was a fairly new invention.

speldo 26:22
26:24

A very first thing they wrote down,

speldo 26:24
26:28

is something that actually happend to them,

speldo 26:28
26:32

It was so important, so compelled, so significant to them...

speldo 26:32
26:35

that they have to put it in writing.

speldo 26:35
26:39

Why can't modern society come to grips,

speldo 26:39
26:41

that these stories...

speldo 26:41
26:44

... might be true, afterall?

speldo 26:47
26:48

Von Daniken's research...

speldo 26:48
26:52

turned up evidence of other arguibly extraterrestrial phenomena,

speldo 26:53
26:54

... and not only in the Bible.

speldo 26:55
26:58

Almost every religion has similar stories about deities.

speldo 26:58
27:01

with spectacular powers and abilities,

speldo 27:01
27:05

who come to Earth and directly influenced the lives of men.

speldo 27:06
27:08

Suddenly one day I said to myself; now come on!

speldo 27:09
27:12

This is similar the stories in so many old religions,

speldo 27:12
27:14

Are they talking about extraterrestrials?

speldo 27:15
27:18

These so-called gods are here, they give orders,

speldo 27:18
27:23

they force the humans to certain things and one day they dissapear.

speldo 27:23
27:26

But they always dissapear with the promise to return...

speldo 27:26
27:28

... in a far away future.

speldo 27:29
27:34

If, as I believe, people in ancient civilizations,

speldo 27:34
27:36

were familiar with space travel...

speldo 27:37
27:41

... people in ancient civilizations were in comunication

speldo 27:41
27:43

with human-like beings from other planets,

speldo 27:43
27:46

Then, I think we should expect to find evidence,

speldo 27:46
27:51

for this in their literatures, which we do find.

speldo 27:52
27:54

Throughout the Indian Sanskrit epics of India,

speldo 27:55
28:00

there are numerous descriptions of Vimanas or mythical flying machines.

speldo 28:00
28:04

One of these accounts even dates back over 5000 years.

speldo 28:04
28:09

In the Bhagavata Purana, which is an ancient Sanskrit history,

speldo 28:09
28:12

there is a description of a spacecraft,

speldo 28:12
28:16

that was piloted by a King named Shol'va.

speldo 28:16
28:19

It's described that was made of metal,

speldo 28:19
28:24

It was described that it’s sometimes appeared to be in two places at once,

speldo 28:25
28:29

it was described this having a motion similar to that of a butterfly,

speldo 28:29
28:31

and these descriptions are consistent,

speldo 28:31
28:35

with what people who observe UFOs today, report.

speldo 28:37
28:39

In other Sanskrit texts,

speldo 28:39
28:43

such as the Mahabharata, the Rigveda and the Ramayana,

speldo 28:43
28:48

there can be found descriptions of Vimana measurement as wide as 100 ft.

speldo 28:49
28:52

and often equipped with the capabilities of modern aircraft.

speldo 28:55
28:57

One Vimana produced a shaft of light,

speldo 28:58
29:01

which when focused on a target, consumed it with it's power.

speldo 29:02
29:07

It's like a Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon movie from the 30's.

speldo 29:08
29:11

They read like the wild of the science fiction,

speldo 29:11
29:15

People are flying around in airships called Vimanas.

speldo 29:15
29:21

Blasting each other and having aerial fights, destoying entire cities.

speldo 29:22
29:24

And the craziest thing is...

speldo 29:24
29:30

... that all those stories are totally accepted in the modern society of India.

speldo 29:34
29:39

I don't think we can say that these descriptions are simple imagination,

speldo 29:39
29:42

because even though they were written thousands of years ago,

speldo 29:42
29:45

they match with what many people today report,

speldo 29:45
29:49

in terms of observing the actions of UFOs.

speldo 29:49
29:52

Where just mythological tales, that they’re making up fantasy,

speldo 29:53
29:55

or these physical real events,

speldo 29:55
29:57

and they try to describe them as the best as they could.

speldo 29:58
29:59

It seems to be more sense to me.

speldo 30:01
30:04

I can tell you this, I would be out of the job in India,

speldo 30:04
30:08

because there if I were to talk about ancient aliens and ancient gods,

speldo 30:09
30:11

they would say: Ok, so what else is new?

speldo 30:17
30:21

When backing at their claims of extraterrestrial visitation,

speldo 30:21
30:25

ancient aliens theorists, drop on two kinds of examples:

speldo 30:26
30:31

Theres the evidence you can read, such as that found in ancient texts,

speldo 30:31
30:34

and then theres the evidence that you can actually see.

speldo 30:36
30:39

Among the earliest types of physical specimens,

speldo 30:39
30:45

numerous cave and rock drawings, and stone sculptures found all over the globe.

speldo 30:45
30:47

You know, a picture is worth a thousand words.

speldo 30:47
30:48

Absolutely.

speldo 30:48
30:52

When you see pictures depicted for example on a cave in Italy,

speldo 30:52
30:55

that shows two astronauts with helmets on,

speldo 30:55
30:57

Oh, what the heck could it be?

speldo 30:57
30:58

What could it be?

speldo 30:59
31:02

Each of these ancient illustrations or statues,

speldo 31:02
31:06

depict figures dressed in strange attire for the times,

speldo 31:06
31:09

and sporting unusual headgear.

speldo 31:09
31:13

But could they really be representations of alien astronauts,

speldo 31:13
31:18

visitors from other worlds who touch down upon the Earth thousands of years ago.

speldo 31:20
31:24

All over the world we have statues, and sculptures and paintings

speldo 31:24
31:28

and depictions of these extraterrestrial beings.

speldo 31:29
31:32

Even in the United States, at Sego Canyon, Utah,

speldo 31:32
31:33

we have pictoglyphs,

speldo 31:33
31:37

of very weird looking creatures,

speldo 31:37
31:40

that have antennas on their heads, helmets...

speldo 31:40
31:44

And half way around the world, in Kimberley, Australia, for example,

speldo 31:44
31:49

we have the exact same depictions of these helmeted beings,

speldo 31:49
31:51

with a halo around their heads,

speldo 31:51
31:52

and the question I have is:

speldo 31:52
31:56

What did our ancestors see, that compelled them...

speldo 31:56
31:59

to put this on their cave walls?

speldo 32:00
32:03

On yet another continent, in Guatemala City,

speldo 32:04
32:09

we have a sculpture that looks eerie reminescent of a modern day astronaut.

speldo 32:09
32:11

I mean, that thing is wearing a helmet,

speldo 32:12
32:14

there some tubes of mouth-piece,

speldo 32:14
32:18

and on his chest are some type of controls,

speldo 32:18
32:20

or rebreathing apparatus.

speldo 32:20
32:23

How is this possible, 1500 years ago?

speldo 32:25
32:26

And in Colombia,

speldo 32:26
32:33

there were thousands of tomb artifacts that look like modern day airplanes.

speldo 32:33
32:37

It has fixed wings, it has a fuselage,

speldo 32:37
32:43

and it has an upright tail fin, which is not intrinsec to nature,

speldo 32:44
32:48

but it it's intrinsec to modern day aerodynamics.

speldo 32:49
32:54

Did our ancestors see something similar flying in the air?, Absolutely.

speldo 32:55
32:59

Another compelling artifact that was found was at the Istanbul museum,

speldo 32:59
33:06

where you have this headless spaceman, sitting inside some type of space vehicle.

speldo 33:06
33:09

You can see his hands, and you can see tubing,

speldo 33:09
33:12

that go to some sort of devices,

speldo 33:12
33:15

He wearing a suit, his legs are cramped in there.

speldo 33:15
33:20

I mean, even to the untrained eye This looks very aerodynamic,

speldo 33:20
33:25

and it looks something, that, you know, came from outer space.

speldo 33:26
33:30

These people witnessed something, they were told something,

speldo 33:31
33:32

And they tried to depicted them,

speldo 33:32
33:36

the best way they could, with the kind of technology they had at that time.

speldo 33:36
33:39

And that was simple tools and simple artwork.

speldo 33:39
33:46

Many of these ancient civilizations were widely separated, in space and time.

speldo 33:46
33:48

They weren't in communication with each other,

speldo 33:49
33:53

but still they had the same kinds of accounts.

speldo 33:53
33:56

I think it's because they all experienced these things.

speldo 33:56
34:02

and they all had the idea that we are part of a cosmic hierarchy of beings.

speldo 34:02
34:07

So I think we can explain things away so easily.

speldo 34:09
34:11

But for Erik Von Daniken...

speldo 34:11
34:14

and other proponents of these ancient astronaut theories.

speldo 34:14
34:18

perhaps the most significant illustration, can be found in Mexico.

speldo 34:20
34:23

The Mayan archaeological site of Palenque,

speldo 34:23
34:25

have been abandoned for centuries,

speldo 34:25
34:28

before it was stumbled upon by Spanish explorers.

speldo 34:30
34:33

so we get to the top of this... and suddenly...

speldo 34:34
34:37

... here are the great pyramids of Palenque.

speldo 34:39
34:41

Here, deep within a secret tomb,

speldo 34:42
34:44

under one of the age old temples.

speldo 34:44
34:46

lies the 7 tons sarcophagus,

speldo 34:46
34:50

of Palenque 7th century ruler: Pakal the Great.

speldo 34:51
34:55

Lord Pakal apparently died here at Palenque.

speldo 34:55
35:01

He was barely as mysterious Mayan leader, he was a giant.

speldo 35:01
35:03

7-8 ft tall actually.

speldo 35:04
35:08

And then they built this pyramid around his tomb.

speldo 35:08
35:12

The Mayans literally worship him as some kind of a god.

speldo 35:14
35:16

King Pakal sarcophagus,

speldo 35:16
35:18

It's adorned with the carving that is become...

speldo 35:18
35:21

a famous example of classic mayan art.

speldo 35:22
35:25

Most believe the illustration shows Pakal

speldo 35:25
35:27

descending into the Mayan underworld.

speldo 35:28
35:33

but ancient astronaut theorists, interpret the carving a vastly different way...

speldo 35:33
35:36

On this lap an incredible enchiseling.

speldo 35:37
35:40

You see a man, and hes sitting on a sort of capsule,

speldo 35:40
35:42

has has some sort of mask on his nose,

speldo 35:42
35:46

and you see his upper hand he is manipulating some control.

speldo 35:46
35:48

from the lower hand, his turning something on.

speldo 35:49
35:51

the heel of his left foot is on a kind of pedal,

speldo 35:51
35:54

and outside of the capsule you see a linking flame.

speldo 35:55
35:56

This is incredible.

speldo 35:56
35:59

This is absolutely proof of extraterrestrials.

speldo 36:00
36:01

three...

speldo 36:01
36:02

two...

speldo 36:02
36:03

one...

speldo 36:03
36:05

Zero. Lift off.

speldo 36:06
36:10

If you look at the similarities of what our astronauts look like when they are

speldo 36:10
36:13

in a rocket ship or in a space shuttle and have a gear attached to them,

speldo 36:13
36:15

there are similarities been shown, so...

speldo 36:15
36:17

Once just has to ask the question of

speldo 36:18
36:19

you know, it's this just an artifact,

speldo 36:19
36:22

symbolicly showing something or are they trying to depict

speldo 36:23
36:25

with their own limited understandig of the time,

speldo 36:25
36:26

what was taken place?

speldo 36:27
36:31

Was Lord Pakal just some Mayan King that everyone liked?

speldo 36:32
36:36

was he some important visitor from some far off land?

speldo 36:37
36:39

or was he even possibly,

speldo 36:39
36:42

some extraterrestrial, from another planet?

speldo 36:45
36:47

Although most scientists and archaeologists,

speldo 36:48
36:52

descredit Von Daniken's interpretation of the Palenque carvings,

speldo 36:52
36:55

visitors to the site are often treated to stories,

speldo 36:56
36:58

and offer souvenirs that support his claim.

speldo 36:59
37:01

This is Erik Von Daniken's theory...

speldo 37:01
37:02

"The Chariots of the Gods"

speldo 37:03
37:05

You see, Pakal suppose to be driving...

speldo 37:06
37:07

the rocket,

speldo 37:07
37:08

holding the controls,

speldo 37:09
37:10

the pedals...

speldo 37:11
37:12

the engine,

speldo 37:13
37:15

and the fire of the rocket,

speldo 37:15
37:16

this would be the cabin.

speldo 37:17
37:19

And this is the oxygen.

speldo 37:20
37:24

mainstream archaeologists claim that It's really a depiction of Lord Pakal,

speldo 37:25
37:26

in his journey to the underworld,

speldo 37:27
37:28

he is going under the ground,

speldo 37:28
37:30

rather than out into space.

speldo 37:31
37:36

Both are interesting theories, and either could be right in my mind.

speldo 37:37
37:42

In recent years, Pakal's Tomb has been closed to tourist and casual visitors.

speldo 37:43
37:47

Althought the sarcohagous it's off limit's, ancient astronaut theorists

speldo 37:47
37:52

can still find a wealth of evidence in the carvings along the walls of Palenque.

speldo 37:52
37:57

This is very similar to what’s on the lid of Lord Pakal. On his tomb.

speldo 37:57
38:03

The way it’s got his left hand right here in like an odd position on his wrist.

speldo 38:03
38:08

alter some kind of rocket exhaust or something is coming out of them.

speldo 38:10
38:14

But Lord Pakal may not had been the only alien,

speldo 38:14
38:16

who once walked upon the Palenque ruins.

speldo 38:16
38:21

The Mayans has such advanced calendar and mathematical system.

speldo 38:21
38:23

Why were they so obsessed with the stars?

speldo 38:24
38:27

One of the most advanced of any ancient cultures,

speldo 38:28
38:33

And yet the Mayans just vanished around 500 A.D.

speldo 38:34
38:37

We do not know where they went. And one explanation,

speldo 38:37
38:40

that the Mayans were some kind of extraterrestrials,

speldo 38:40
38:42

and they literally left our planet.

speldo 38:44
38:47

But ancient cave drawings and stone carvings,

speldo 38:48
38:53

aren’t the only type of illustrations that fascinate ancient alien theorists?

speldo 38:53
38:57

in 1929, historians discovered a map,

speldo 38:57
39:00

which it been painted onto a piece of gazelle hide.

speldo 39:01
39:05

They traced the document back to a sixteen century turkish admiral,

speldo 39:05
39:06

named Piri Reis.

speldo 39:07
39:11

But in star contrast to other maps dating back of that time,

speldo 39:11
39:15

the map depicts land masses that were still, as yet unexplored.

speldo 39:16
39:24

It shows the coast of Antarctica as it exists under the current ice cover.

speldo 39:25
39:29

That's actually pretty amazing, because it would tend to indicate that the map

speldo 39:29
39:35

was made at a time when Antarctica was ice free.

speldo 39:35
39:39

which would be many millions of years ago.

speldo 39:39
39:44

The map also accuratly charts the coasts of Europe and North Africa,

speldo 39:44
39:47

But is the illustration of northern Antarctica,

speldo 39:47
39:50

that trully astonishes ancient astronauts theorists,

speldo 39:51
39:56

because this region wouldn't even been discovered for another 300 years,

speldo 39:56
40:00

If remember that Antarctica is covered by at least a mile thick ice.

speldo 40:00
40:03

We did not have ground-penetration radar until to 1958.

speldo 40:04
40:08

so for a map to exist in 1531 accurratly showing this topography,

speldo 40:08
40:09

It's pretty interesting.

speldo 40:11
40:15

When Cartographers super impose the Piri Reis map,

speldo 40:15
40:19

over modern map of the world, they were amaze to discover,

speldo 40:19
40:24

that the ancient chart was fantasticly accurate in the most minute of details.

speldo 40:25
40:28

But how the creators of a centuries old map,

speldo 40:28
40:31

have known the mountains or rivers that yet to be discovered?

speldo 40:32
40:36

In 1531 I really dont know of any one who was flying about the surface of the Earth,

speldo 40:37
40:39

high enough to map topography,

speldo 40:39
40:41

have known the mountains or rivers that yet to be discovered?

speldo 40:41
40:44

Their maps were so accurate...

speldo 40:44
40:49

... I mean we know that they didn't go to Antarctica and explore it,

speldo 40:49
40:52

but yet they were able to draw this maps of there.

speldo 40:55
40:59

But if ancient aliens possessed the technology to travel the universe,

speldo 41:00
41:04

with the only evidence of their journey be in the form of a few carvings,

speldo 41:04
41:05

or a mysterious map?

speldo 41:06
41:10

Wouldn't there also be signs of a highly advanced technology?

speldo 41:10
41:14

Signs that might be too large to overlook.

speldo 41:14
41:19

You mean to tell me that people of that time period did this by hand?

speldo 41:19
41:21

I don't think so.

speldo 41:27
41:30

When it comes to search for evidence of ancient aliens,

speldo 41:31
41:35

Erik Von Daniken literally leaves no stones unturned.

speldo 41:36
41:39

I have collected for more than 40 years information.

speldo 41:39
41:44

and there are two sorts of evidences to support my hypothesis.

speldo 41:44
41:47

The one source is literature,

speldo 41:47
41:51

this might be archaeological or mythological... literature,

speldo 41:51
41:53

and the other source are practical objects.

speldo 41:54
41:57

For example, the pyramids are linked to the gods.

speldo 41:57
42:03

the gods who once descended from the sky to us earthlings.

speldo 42:04
42:07

Without a little interplanetary help,

speldo 42:07
42:10

how else could early Egyptians have learned to stack...

speldo 42:10
42:14

the nearly two and a half million limestone and granite blocks,

speldo 42:14
42:16

that create the Great Pyramid?

speldo 42:18
42:22

How could prehistoric man moved the inmense boulders at Stonehenge?

speldo 42:25
42:29

And how could ancient builders at Cuzco, fixed stones so closely together,

speldo 42:30
42:32

that even a razor blade can't fit between them?

speldo 42:37
42:41

While was traveling around the world trying to piece together this... this...

speldo 42:41
42:43

... this puzzle of the ancient world,

speldo 42:44
42:49

is no that much to really get a good grasp on what there is...

speldo 42:49
42:53

is... giant blocks of stone,

speldo 42:53
42:56

huge articulated granite,

speldo 42:56
42:59

or basalt blocks in many cases

speldo 42:59
43:01

sometimes at weight of thousands tons.

speldo 43:05
43:08

At these things at the sizes of railway cars,

speldo 43:08
43:12

and you find them in Peru and Bolivia and Mexico and ancient Egypt.

speldo 43:13
43:14

You have to ask yourself:

speldo 43:15
43:16

Why...

speldo 43:16
43:17

and how...

speldo 43:18
43:24

could ancient people have dragged this railway cars sized block of stone

speldo 43:24
43:28

stack them up together into this giant buildings?

speldo 43:30
43:32

Perhaps the most familiar,

speldo 43:32
43:34

and most mysterious,

speldo 43:34
43:36

megalithic structure in all the world

speldo 43:36
43:39

is the Great Pyramid of Gizah.

speldo 43:39
43:43

The oldest and largest of Egypt's three great pyramids.

speldo 43:43
43:45

This miracle of engeniering,

speldo 43:45
43:49

it's belive to have been constructed dued in a twenty years period.

speldo 43:49
43:52

and in around 2,560 B.C.

speldo 43:53
43:58

But to ancient alien theorists those numbers just dont adapt.

speldo 44:01
44:06

The Great Pyramid was not built in only 22 years,

speldo 44:06
44:08

because logisticly speaking,

speldo 44:08
44:09

we would have to cut,

speldo 44:10
44:13

transport and put into place, one stone...

speldo 44:14
44:16

... every nine seconds.

speldo 44:18
44:20

And there are modern engineers,

speldo 44:21
44:23

who have come forward and said:

speldo 44:23
44:26

"We couldnt do this in twenty two years either".

speldo 44:27
44:31

There are countless theories on how the Great Pyramid of Gizah was built.

speldo 44:31
44:34

So many theories, you just sit back and shake your head.

speldo 44:34
44:37

And that includes ET visitations,

speldo 44:37
44:41

levitating the blocks with some kind of sound system,

speldo 44:42
44:44

Antigravity.

speldo 44:45
44:48

Thousands of workers pulling long ropes,

speldo 44:48
44:51

and a ramp that has to be almost two miles long.

speldo 44:51
44:53

to get it up to where it is.

speldo 44:56
44:57

All I know...

speldo 44:57
44:59

is that they are so finely aligned,

speldo 45:00
45:03

and that the architecture is so precise,

speldo 45:03
45:05

that even modern people today,

speldo 45:05
45:08

with great technology, would have a difficult time,

speldo 45:09
45:10

being that good.

speldo 45:13
45:17

How for example in the inside of the pyramids in the tombs

speldo 45:17
45:23

could they build granite and marble areas that were just so perfect and so clean?

speldo 45:25
45:29

You mean to tell me that people of that time period

speldo 45:29
45:31

did this by hand?

speldo 45:31
45:32

I don't think so.

speldo 45:34
45:37

The enormous size and weight of the stones

speldo 45:38
45:40

multiplied by their * number them

speldo 45:40
45:42

makes one thing certain:

speldo 45:43
45:45

The construction of Great Pyramid

speldo 45:45
45:47

remain as one of the greatest marvels

speldo 45:47
45:48

and mysteries.

speldo 45:48
45:50

of architectural engeniering.

speldo 45:52
45:54

I don't want to discount human ingenuity

speldo 45:54
45:56

because I do believe that we have the ability to do these things

speldo 45:56
45:58

over a long period of time,

speldo 45:58
46:01

but the knowledge to build some of these monuments

speldo 46:01
46:03

There have to been some type of intervention

speldo 46:03
46:05

or some type of knowledge give them to ancient man,

speldo 46:05
46:08

to carry others instructions that couldnt just come up on their own.

speldo 46:10
46:12

In Egypt there are old traditions

speldo 46:12
46:15

saying the Great Pyramid was contructed

speldo 46:15
46:17

by a Pharaoh with the name of Saurit,

speldo 46:18
46:21

and they say Saurit is the same...

speldo 46:21
46:24

... which the Hebrew communitiy

speldo 46:24
46:25

calls Enoch.

speldo 46:27
46:29

Enoch is a prophet in the Old Testament,

speldo 46:29
46:33

There are books of Enoch called the apocryphy texts.

speldo 46:34
46:37

You make a connection with Enoch to this extraterrestrials.

speldo 46:37
46:40

He clearly says: I met these extraterrestrials.

speldo 46:41
46:44

Now we have writings in the book of Enoch,

speldo 46:44
46:49

and he gave the order to construct a building which cannot be destroyed

speldo 46:49
46:52

by the thousands of years at the future.

speldo 46:57
47:00

In the ancient Egyptian texts

speldo 47:00
47:06

speak that the pyramids were built by human beings

speldo 47:06
47:11

with the assistance of the guardians of the sky,

speldo 47:11
47:13

meaning, The Gods.

speldo 47:14
47:16

And so we have propose

speldo 47:17
47:20

that the pyramids were built by human hands.

speldo 47:20
47:25

but with the assistance of extraterrestrial technology.

speldo 47:28
47:30

As one of the Seven Wonders of the World,

speldo 47:30
47:32

The Great Pyramid remains...

speldo 47:32
47:37

not only archaeological mystery, but a geographical marvel.

speldo 47:38
47:42

In 1877, author and theologian, Joseph Seiss,

speldo 47:42
47:45

demonstrated, that the great pyramid resides

speldo 47:45
47:48

at the intersection of the longest line of latitude

speldo 47:48
47:51

and the longest line of longitud.

speldo 47:51
47:55

The exact center of all the land mass in the world.

speldo 47:56
47:57

Also...

speldo 47:57
47:59

each of the four sides,

speldo 47:59
48:03

aligns almost precisely, with the four points of the compas,

speldo 48:04
48:09

those such an instrument, wasnt even designed until thousands of years later.

speldo 48:12
48:15

But it as just mere coincidence, the pyramid contruction,

speldo 48:16
48:19

very similar to that practice in ancient Egypt,

speldo 48:19
48:22

was also evolving half way round the world.

speldo 48:23
48:26

There are pyramids on remote Pacific islands,

speldo 48:27
48:28

and in India,

speldo 48:29
48:30

and in Mexico.

speldo 48:31
48:35

So this is something thats all over the world.

speldo 48:35
48:38

Archaeologists haven't really been able to explain why

speldo 48:38
48:42

disimilar cultures, separated by huge oceans,

speldo 48:42
48:46

are building the same structures and in many ways the same way.

speldo 48:49
48:51

Here in central Mexico,

speldo 48:51
48:55

stands an ancient city that dates back more than 2000 years.

speldo 48:56
49:01

It's name... "Teotihuacán", literally means "City of the Gods".

speldo 49:02
49:06

And located at it's center, It's the Pyramid of the Sun

speldo 49:07
49:10

Incredibly, this pyramid's perimeter,

speldo 49:10
49:14

is virtually the same as that of the Great Pyramid of Gizah.

speldo 49:15
49:19

Structural coincidence?, or... could it be...

speldo 49:19
49:22

... that both were inspired by te same designers?

speldo 49:23
49:24

Couple of theories for that.

speldo 49:25
49:26

Ok, One...

speldo 49:26
49:31

maybe they were all taught the same thing by an extraterrestrial race.

speldo 49:31
49:32

Two...

speldo 49:32
49:35

There were ancient travelers from within in this planet,

speldo 49:35
49:37

who... went from one area to another.

speldo 49:37
49:39

over the thousands of past years.

speldo 49:39
49:41

And then some skeptics will say:

speldo 49:42
49:45

Hey, thats the greatest archaeological way to make it!,

speldo 49:45
49:46

so they just knew it.

speldo 49:47
49:49

I do not think that the case.

speldo 49:54
49:56

At Teotihuacan here we have... a...

speldo 49:56
49:59

Giant Pyramid of the Sun and the Giant Pyramid of the Moon.

speldo 50:00
50:05

According to the legends, these things were built by gods who were giants.

speldo 50:05
50:08

at the end of one of the destructions of the world.

speldo 50:11
50:13

Civilizations such as the Aztecs,

speldo 50:13
50:16

and the Mayans and the Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona,

speldo 50:16
50:20

they believe that the world has been destroyed four times in the past.

speldo 50:21
50:22

One time by ice,

speldo 50:22
50:23

once by fire,

speldo 50:23
50:23

once by water...

speldo 50:28
50:30

Each time mankind rebuild again.

speldo 50:31
50:34

And Teotihuacan supposedly was built,

speldo 50:34
50:38

just at the beginning of one of these four worlds.

speldo 50:41
50:42

You may ask the question:

speldo 50:42
50:46

Why build these huge, huge structures?

speldo 50:46
50:47

For what purpose?

speldo 50:48
50:52

Well... in Egypt, for example: Either the Pharaoh had incredible egos,

speldo 50:53
50:55

and they wanted out do themselves, right?

speldo 50:55
50:59

so they build these huge museums for themselves,

speldo 50:59
51:06

or... is also possible that these ancients wanted to leave behind something for us?

speldo 51:08
51:11

It is written in ancient Egyptian texts,

speldo 51:11
51:14

the purpose why the pyramids was build?

speldo 51:14
51:17

Was to store knowledge?

speldo 51:18
51:25

300 books, which allegedly contain the knowledge of the universe,

speldo 51:26
51:30

dictated by the guardians of the sky.

speldo 51:33
51:36

Of course, the pyramids are the only ancient monuments,

speldo 51:36
51:40

that continue to bafle scientists and archaeologists.

speldo 51:42
51:44

There they literally hundreds of them,

speldo 51:44
51:48

and they can be found in every corner of our world.

speldo 51:53
51:56

In a remote area of the Pacific Ocean,

speldo 51:56
52:00

lies one of the most isolated yet unhabited locations in the world.

speldo 52:01
52:02

Easter Island.

speldo 52:08
52:15

Here, over 800 stone guardians called Moai stand watch over the islands coast line.

speldo 52:17
52:22

But are they primitive native carvings or eerie portraIt's of alien visitors,

speldo 52:22
52:24

from thousands of years ago?

speldo 52:26
52:29

Whatever they were for, there made to last for thousands of years,

speldo 52:30
52:34

there built out of... block stones that weight many... many tons.

speldo 52:34
52:42

Not only are people building structures are these huge megalithic blocks stone.

speldo 52:42
52:44

but this was going all around the world.

speldo 52:45
52:49

And yet supposely it's just primitive people doing this

speldo 52:49
52:51

for no really good reason as with in.

speldo 52:52
52:54

I mean one of the things that comes into our considerations

speldo 52:54
52:57

of what ancient cultures could acomplish.

speldo 52:57
52:59

It's whether they were able to write it down or not.

speldo 52:59
53:02

Were very tight to what we have evidence they wrote down,

speldo 53:02
53:05

how they did it, then we belive in how they did it.

speldo 53:05
53:08

So, Egypt we have a lot more writings and drawings,

speldo 53:08
53:10

that show them building the pyramids,

speldo 53:10
53:11

give us an idea of the technology.

speldo 53:12
53:13

You view some like Easter Island

speldo 53:14
53:16

we dont have any writing evidence in what they did.

speldo 53:16
53:19

and sometimes that lead us to the question of intervendness.

speldo 53:24
53:26

3500 miles away,

speldo 53:26
53:28

in the Republic of Bolivia,

speldo 53:28
53:30

stone work exists,

speldo 53:30
53:33

which is amazingly similar to the statues of Easter Island.

speldo 53:38
53:39

Tiwanaku is in fact,

speldo 53:40
53:43

so ancient, but it defies modern day in techniques.

speldo 53:44
53:48

It is estimated, to be over 17000 years old.

speldo 53:48
53:51

Perhaps the oldest city in the world.

speldo 53:54
53:57

And somehow the sculptures at Tiwanaku,

speldo 53:57
53:59

were constructed in the same style,

speldo 54:00
54:02

and with the same enigmatic expressions,

speldo 54:02
54:05

as their distant cousins on Easter Island.

speldo 54:07
54:11

A lot of stuff at Tiwanaku, you can see in earlier civilizations.

speldo 54:12
54:17

All way back * into the... into the centuries B.C. in Peru.

speldo 54:18
54:22

you see some the same patterns, some of the same iconography, imagery,

speldo 54:23
54:25

and you can see the ancestry of it.

speldo 54:30
54:33

but while tourists flew to the ruins at Tiwanaku,

speldo 54:34
54:37

perhaps the most mystifing of all ancient sites,

speldo 54:37
54:39

lies just a few hundreds yards away.

speldo 54:40
54:43

At relatively little interest of most visitors.

speldo 54:43
54:46

Puma Punku, is a field of stone ruins

speldo 54:46
54:48

that both thrills and stimulates,

speldo 54:48
54:51

the imaginations of ancient alien theorists.

speldo 55:00
55:01

In my opinion,

speldo 55:02
55:05

the most significant piece of evidence that we have,

speldo 55:05
55:08

in this entire ancient astronaut puzzle,

speldo 55:09
55:13

is Puma Punku, in the highland of Bolivia,

speldo 55:19
55:21

While the Pyramids at Gizah,

speldo 55:22
55:24

are incredible * of achievment.

speldo 55:25
55:29

compared to Puma Punku, the Pyramids are childplay.

speldo 55:36
55:39

Logic does not exists at Puma Punku,

speldo 55:40
55:44

because there we have megalithic structures,

speldo 55:44
55:47

which just lie about this entire site,

speldo 55:47
55:51

as if ripped apart by... by some sort of great force.

speldo 55:54
55:56

The blocks at Puma Punku,

speldo 55:56
55:58

were so finely cut,

speldo 55:58
56:00

that they once perfectly interlocked,

speldo 56:00
56:03

like the pieces of an elaborated puzzle.

speldo 56:03
56:07

But with the nearest quarry, over ten miles away.

speldo 56:07
56:11

How are these colossal stones, some weighting hundreds of tons.

speldo 56:11
56:12

... even get here.

speldo 56:13
56:17

We are talking about a place 4500 meters, over sea level.

speldo 56:17
56:20

that means that there no trees up there, wich you could use for rollers.

speldo 56:21
56:24

Nothing grows except a few grasses and bushes.

speldo 56:24
56:29

I have stood in front of many monuments, however...

speldo 56:29
56:31

Puma Punku takes the crown,

speldo 56:32
56:36

because what we find there, is so inexplicable,

speldo 56:37
56:39

so inachievable,

speldo 56:39
56:44

that... the question remains: How is it done and for what purposes?

speldo 56:51
56:53

mainstream archaeologists say...

speldo 56:53
56:58

... that Puma Punku was built by the Aymara Indians.

speldo 56:58
57:03

and we all have to agree that in order to built something like Puma Punku,

speldo 57:03
57:08

you need writing, you need planning, and you need some sort of the... idea,

speldo 57:09
57:13

where... which piece goes and how ultimately all fit's together.

speldo 57:14
57:18

There is one thing that all the mainstream archaeologists agree upon,

speldo 57:18
57:20

that the Aymara...

speldo 57:20
57:21

... didn't have any writing.

speldo 57:22
57:25

So how is it possible that they built all this...

speldo 57:25
57:27

... without plans?

speldo 57:27
57:29

Which is really amazing...

speldo 57:29
57:35

and why the ancient astronauts theorists are so drawn to Puma Punku and Tiwanaku?

speldo 57:35
57:41

Is the... the quality of the stone work and the inmense size of these blocks.

speldo 57:41
57:43

Is so incredible...

speldo 57:43
57:47

... and perfect, that is actually evidence of machining.

speldo 57:48
57:50

and they were using machines tools,

speldo 57:51
57:52

to cut these blocks.

speldo 57:56
57:59

One of the platforms is 800 tons.

speldo 58:00
58:02

and they are so smoothly polished,

speldo 58:03
58:05

Here are some stone, megalithic stones,

speldo 58:05
58:08

with grubs which are a just few millimeters inside.

speldo 58:08
58:13

Which definitely cannot be made with stone age chisels.

speldo 58:13
58:15

It doesn't work with stone age chisels so...

speldo 58:15
58:17

There is another technology guiding.

speldo 58:17
58:21

The lines carved into these rocks are exactly straight,

speldo 58:21
58:24

and precisely the same depth from one end to the other.

speldo 58:28
58:32

It's as if only master builders...

speldo 58:33
58:35

were allowed to work there.

speldo 58:36
58:39

because everything is so precise,

speldo 58:39
58:41

everything is so perfect.

speldo 58:41
58:45

You wonder how any of these was even posible?

speldo 58:53
58:54

One of the most intriguing things there is...

speldo 58:54
58:56

that the stones that were used there...

speldo 58:56
58:58

... are sand stone.

speldo 58:58
59:00

There are granite and diorite.

speldo 59:04
59:07

The only stone that's harder than diorite...

speldo 59:07
59:08

... is diamond.

speldo 59:09
59:11

So the only way at this is gonna been achieve...

speldo 59:11
59:15

... is if the tools were tipped with diamonds.

speldo 59:15
59:19

American professors who were up there with their computer modern measurements,

speldo 59:19
59:20

they were really shocked.

speldo 59:20
59:24

In their literature they say: "It is impossible...

speldo 59:24
59:27

to reconstruct Puma Punku, it's absolutely impossible".

speldo 59:28
59:30

But what is it really difficult to believe

speldo 59:30
59:34

that ancient peoples could it so precisely carve the stones.

speldo 59:34
59:37

or could build such an incredible interstructure from them.

speldo 59:40
59:44

If there was ancient astronauts teaching them this building techniques

speldo 59:44
59:49

why dont we see just perfect almost skyscraper like vertical edificies?

speldo 59:50
59:52

Everything was all pyramid like?

speldo 59:52
59:56

Stone cutting techniques have been invented and re-invented

speldo 59:56
59:59

and independently invented all over the world.

speldo 59:59
1:00:03

If you think of yourself as a god king and you want to have a structure built

speldo 1:00:03
1:00:06

thats going to last thousands of years...

speldo 1:00:06
1:00:11

It's much better to built it out of prefectly fittin stones without moulder,

speldo 1:00:11
1:00:15

that degrades and decays and has to be mantained,

speldo 1:00:15
1:00:18

So we see moulderless structures,

speldo 1:00:18
1:00:21

megalithics structures all over the world.

speldo 1:00:25
1:00:27

We have an anomaly here.

speldo 1:00:27
1:00:31

Where on one hand this people are supose to be... very primitive,

speldo 1:00:31
1:00:34

are they just one step out the stone age,

speldo 1:00:34
1:00:40

yet... what they doing are things that we couldn't even do today.

speldo 1:00:40
1:00:43

... apparently, or we have extreme difficulty.

speldo 1:00:44
1:00:47

And that is building with this giant block stone...

speldo 1:00:47
1:00:51

... perfectly fiting and together with other blocks...

speldo 1:00:51
1:00:53

... interlocking them.

speldo 1:00:56
1:00:59

The ancient people of our time on this planet,

speldo 1:00:59
1:01:04

truly saw extrange things, they witness bizarre events.

speldo 1:01:06
1:01:09

But those stories other than in depictions,

speldo 1:01:09
1:01:10

and some artwork and things like that...

speldo 1:01:11
1:01:14

... they're gone, for some reason they're just gone.

speldo 1:01:14
1:01:16

But left behind...

speldo 1:01:16
1:01:18

... are incredibly things that we have,

speldo 1:01:18
1:01:19

that make you wonder...

speldo 1:01:19
1:01:22

How in the heck were these things built?

speldo 1:01:22
1:01:25

Those are great mysteries, and I think...

speldo 1:01:25
1:01:27

... one of the things that keeps people...

speldo 1:01:27
1:01:30

... just continue into push for the anwers...

speldo 1:01:30
1:01:32

<i>are that fact that these</i> <i>things are so out there,</i>

speldo 1:01:33
1:01:34

that they cant figure it out.

speldo 1:01:35
1:01:37

But uncovering the mystery,

speldo 1:01:37
1:01:40

of just how these incredible structures were built...

speldo 1:01:40
1:01:42

will only solve one piece of the puzzle.

speldo 1:01:43
1:01:47

Finding out why they were built and how they were used,

speldo 1:01:47
1:01:50

poses equally compelling questions...

speldo 1:01:50
1:01:54

questions that might not been answerable, here on Earth.

speldo 1:02:00
1:02:06

Did aliens really inspired our ancestors to build ancient temples and pyramids?

speldo 1:02:07
1:02:08

and if they came here,

speldo 1:02:08
1:02:11

did they left behind any advance knowledge of physics,

speldo 1:02:11
1:02:13

... astronomy or mathematics?

speldo 1:02:15
1:02:19

If so, is there any evidence that remins to this days?

speldo 1:02:20
1:02:22

One example might be this one.

speldo 1:02:22
1:02:25

Often described as the world's first mechanical computer,

speldo 1:02:26
1:02:29

it dates back over 2000 years.

speldo 1:02:30
1:02:36

The Antikythera device was found in 1900 by sponge divers.

speldo 1:02:36
1:02:40

diving off a small island in the Aegean called the Antikythera.

speldo 1:02:41
1:02:43

There was a ship wreck there, and...

speldo 1:02:43
1:02:47

in it was a coral incrusted box.

speldo 1:02:47
1:02:50

And it was made of metal alloys,

speldo 1:02:51
1:02:53

and it then went to the Athens museum.

speldo 1:02:53
1:02:59

where a good 50 years later, they were able to X-Ray this box.

speldo 1:02:59
1:03:01

and they were able to discern,

speldo 1:03:02
1:03:05

cog wheels that were interconnected,

speldo 1:03:05
1:03:10

and gave us a very good depiction of what this thing was.

speldo 1:03:10
1:03:15

and it is a computer, It's a really sofisticated machine,

speldo 1:03:20
1:03:23

It is a very interesting piece of technology because it has two purposes.

speldo 1:03:23
1:03:26

One, was an astronomical device, where you could...

speldo 1:03:27
1:03:29

... by using it chart the position of the stars

speldo 1:03:29
1:03:31

and navigate your way to the seas.

speldo 1:03:31
1:03:34

it was also an astrological device,

speldo 1:03:34
1:03:35

so that some could tell you,

speldo 1:03:35
1:03:39

oh, if you are born at this date and your planet side is this,

speldo 1:03:39
1:03:41

then certain things are going to happend to you

speldo 1:03:41
1:03:42

when the planets were on this alignement.

speldo 1:03:43
1:03:45

So it's a very interesting piece of technology,

speldo 1:03:45
1:03:47

that literally had...

speldo 1:03:48
1:03:50

more complicated gears in...

speldo 1:03:50
1:03:52

inner workings than a modern day Swiss watch.

speldo 1:03:53
1:03:56

And it's found to be dated I think like 200 B.C.

speldo 1:03:56
1:03:58

So it's really an anomaly as to...

speldo 1:03:58
1:04:01

Who could create that and what it's been used for?

speldo 1:04:04
1:04:09

When archaeologists first start examining this thing at the 1950s...

speldo 1:04:09
1:04:11

... they said that they never could conceived

speldo 1:04:12
1:04:16

of the ancient greeks having such complicated machinery.

speldo 1:04:16
1:04:17

And in fact they said...

speldo 1:04:17
1:04:20

this was * out to finding a jet airplane...

speldo 1:04:20
1:04:21

... in the tomb of King Tut.

speldo 1:04:33
1:04:35

Even older than the Antikythera mechanism...

speldo 1:04:36
1:04:38

are these carvings on a wall...

speldo 1:04:38
1:04:40

at the Dendera temple complex in Egypt...

speldo 1:04:41
1:04:42

to some...

speldo 1:04:43
1:04:48

the strange designs look early similar to objects very much in use today.

speldo 1:04:49
1:04:53

In Egypt, there it's this underground crypt, at Dendera,

speldo 1:04:53
1:04:57

that was always secret and only the higher priests,

speldo 1:04:57
1:05:00

had access to that crypt.

speldo 1:05:00
1:05:02

It's very hot in there,

speldo 1:05:02
1:05:04

very narrow low ceiling,

speldo 1:05:04
1:05:07

and on the walls, you have this relieves...

speldo 1:05:07
1:05:10

of what looks like...

speldo 1:05:10
1:05:12

... ancient light bulbs.

speldo 1:05:13
1:05:16

Because we have to question one thing...

speldo 1:05:16
1:05:18

How did the ancient Egyptians...

speldo 1:05:18
1:05:21

light the inside of their tombs?

speldo 1:05:25
1:05:27

According to most mainstream archaeologists...

speldo 1:05:27
1:05:30

torches were used by the ancient Egyptians.

speldo 1:05:30
1:05:33

to light the pitch black chambers of tombs and temples.

speldo 1:05:34
1:05:36

Yet nowhere on the ceilings

speldo 1:05:36
1:05:39

is there even slightest evidence of * or smoke residue.

speldo 1:05:41
1:05:43

But if torches weren't used,

speldo 1:05:43
1:05:47

How else could this ancient rooms and hallways have been illuminated?

speldo 1:05:53
1:05:55

Another theory that was proposed,

speldo 1:05:55
1:05:59

It's that the light was directed from outside by copper mirrors.

speldo 1:05:59
1:06:02

"And then there was... light".

speldo 1:06:04
1:06:06

"Hey, that it's a neat trick".

speldo 1:06:06
1:06:08

And then I tryied to recreate that theory,

speldo 1:06:08
1:06:14

but unfortunately I failed because only after a few corners,

speldo 1:06:14
1:06:16

the sunlight dissapeared because...

speldo 1:06:16
1:06:18

the copper mirrors were too weak.

speldo 1:06:22
1:06:28

Also, there isn't enough oxygen inside those tombs,

speldo 1:06:28
1:06:33

with which to support or feed a flame of the torch.

speldo 1:06:33
1:06:38

I was once inside the King's Chamber, inside the Pyramid at Gizah.

speldo 1:06:39
1:06:42

and somebody turn off the lights and immediatly,

speldo 1:06:42
1:06:44

we were in pitch darkness.

speldo 1:06:44
1:06:45

And I said: No problem,

speldo 1:06:45
1:06:48

I'll just take out my lighter from my satchel...

speldo 1:06:48
1:06:49

and I turned on the lighter...

speldo 1:06:50
1:06:51

... and it didn't worked.

speldo 1:06:52
1:06:55

So, how were the inside of these temples lit?

speldo 1:06:55
1:07:01

I mean, the only remaining solution is by some sort of artificial light source.

speldo 1:07:02
1:07:06

And that is, for example a light bulb.

speldo 1:07:06
1:07:10

So, at the underground crypt at Dendera,

speldo 1:07:10
1:07:14

we find relieves of such light bulbs.

speldo 1:07:16
1:07:19

Egyptologists explanation of this...

speldo 1:07:20
1:07:23

and they have to have some explanation, theres got to be one...

speldo 1:07:23
1:07:26

Has to be pretty mundane, it cant be that an electrical device.

speldo 1:07:26
1:07:28

Their explanation is that...

speldo 1:07:29
1:07:30

it is...

speldo 1:07:30
1:07:31

... a lotus flower.

speldo 1:07:32
1:07:34

... and what appears to be...

speldo 1:07:35
1:07:37

... a bulb ballon is the aroma...

speldo 1:07:38
1:07:39

... of the lotus flower.

speldo 1:07:40
1:07:43

And so it's just a very odd depiction of... a flower.

speldo 1:07:43
1:07:45

But another explanation of course would be...

speldo 1:07:45
1:07:47

they actually had electrical lights.

speldo 1:07:50
1:07:53

But if the ancient Egyptians had use some kind of electric light,

speldo 1:07:53
1:07:55

to illuminate their passage ways,

speldo 1:07:55
1:07:57

why is the visual evidence exists

speldo 1:07:57
1:08:00

only at the temple of Dendera?

speldo 1:08:00
1:08:02

In Egypt you have different areas...

speldo 1:08:03
1:08:04

... of specialty,

speldo 1:08:04
1:08:08

And Dendera... was the... area...

speldo 1:08:08
1:08:13

... where the knowledge of the light giving source...

speldo 1:08:13
1:08:14

... was kept.

speldo 1:08:14
1:08:19

And this secret knowledge, was kept by the high priests.

speldo 1:08:19
1:08:24

and they're the only ones who * to this type of information.

speldo 1:08:25
1:08:29

Because Dendera was "The Special Place",

speldo 1:08:30
1:08:34

where this specific knowledge was guarded and kept.

speldo 1:08:35
1:08:37

Scientific community is not saying,

speldo 1:08:37
1:08:40

"Oh, there are not extraterrestrials, or they never did it."

speldo 1:08:40
1:08:43

They are judging whether or not this is a valid scientific theory,

speldo 1:08:43
1:08:44

and would that mean by that.

speldo 1:08:45
1:08:47

For something to be a scientific theory

speldo 1:08:47
1:08:49

it really needs to be something you can test

speldo 1:08:49
1:08:50

with the obvious experiment.

speldo 1:08:51
1:08:52

How did could ancient Egyptians

speldo 1:08:53
1:08:55

have use anything resembling a modern day light bulb?

speldo 1:08:56
1:08:58

without access to electricity?

speldo 1:08:58
1:08:59

After all,

speldo 1:08:59
1:09:00

electricity...

speldo 1:09:00
1:09:02

wouldn't be discovered for thousands of years.

speldo 1:09:03
1:09:04

That is of course...

speldo 1:09:04
1:09:07

... with the exception of what scientists call...

speldo 1:09:07
1:09:08

... the Baghdad battery.

speldo 1:09:09
1:09:12

The Baghdad battery was discovered in Ancient Iraq.

speldo 1:09:12
1:09:14

scholars todays say: "Theres no way...

speldo 1:09:14
1:09:17

... that ancient man was using electricity or light bulbs",

speldo 1:09:17
1:09:19

So they look at this Baghdad battery

speldo 1:09:19
1:09:20

and those * dozen of them that

speldo 1:09:20
1:09:21

and found in Iraq.

speldo 1:09:22
1:09:23

And the only mainstream theory

speldo 1:09:23
1:09:26

is that they were using it for electroplating jewelry.

speldo 1:09:27
1:09:30

Two mayor proponents of ancient aliens theory,

speldo 1:09:30
1:09:33

Jason Martel and Giorgio Tsoukalos,

speldo 1:09:34
1:09:38

demonstrated just how the Baghdad battery could generate electricity.

speldo 1:09:38
1:09:41

using a modern mock up of the device.

speldo 1:09:41
1:09:44

Well basically this is made of a clay pod,

speldo 1:09:44
1:09:46

clays just found naturally in origin in southern Iraq.

speldo 1:09:46
1:09:49

And then we use a small copper lining,

speldo 1:09:49
1:09:54

and something along lines at the asfalt stopper rather at the iron rod.

speldo 1:09:54
1:09:56

and this all apply together.

speldo 1:09:56
1:09:59

An a combination of some weak acid *

speldo 1:09:59
1:10:02

vinegar, grape juice, orange juice in this case, wine...

speldo 1:10:02
1:10:04

would be able to generate a charge,

speldo 1:10:04
1:10:06

by combining these elements with the rod

speldo 1:10:06
1:10:07

and the iron rod and the copper

speldo 1:10:07
1:10:11

and the combination of that creates an abundance of electricity.

speldo 1:10:11
1:10:15

So, what we gonna do is basically just fill the clay pot

speldo 1:10:15
1:10:17

with some orange juice just dont try to * too much

speldo 1:10:17
1:10:17

Right...

speldo 1:10:18
1:10:22

and then go to cover the rod back in there, the copper and iron rod

speldo 1:10:22
1:10:25

Will give it a moment to kind of fill that... copper area there.

speldo 1:10:25
1:10:27

And then by turning on the voltmeter...

speldo 1:10:28
1:10:30

... and applying this to each side,

speldo 1:10:30
1:10:32

and should read the generated charge.

speldo 1:10:35
1:10:37

And here it goes, into the positives.

speldo 1:10:39
1:10:43

If you give it some time to get the electrolytes

speldo 1:10:43
1:10:46

really buzzing in there you sit at this volt watch it'll continue to rise

speldo 1:10:47
1:10:49

But while some see the Baghdad battery

speldo 1:10:49
1:10:53

as evidence that man was spark on by extraterrestrial wisdom,

speldo 1:10:54
1:10:57

others look at it and simply say: "So what?"

speldo 1:10:57
1:11:01

You can take some ancient technology like the Baghdad battery

speldo 1:11:01
1:11:04

which probably was used for something like metal plating

speldo 1:11:05
1:11:08

and wich you just mix chemicals and enhance the chemical reactions

speldo 1:11:08
1:11:10

to they were using for this reason,

speldo 1:11:11
1:11:12

and we can take and put a voltmeter

speldo 1:11:12
1:11:14

and go "Oh look, we're able to get a reading out of it!"

speldo 1:11:14
1:11:15

Well... so what?

speldo 1:11:17
1:11:18

Thats just a chemical reaction.

speldo 1:11:18
1:11:23

If they were using, let say... these battery to operate other machines

speldo 1:11:23
1:11:25

Where are the other machines?

speldo 1:11:25
1:11:28

If they were sending the electricity down wires,

speldo 1:11:28
1:11:31

where are all the wires that would it been all over the culture.

speldo 1:11:31
1:11:34

In other words, that why the... a one of a invention like that

speldo 1:11:34
1:11:36

is going to survive...

speldo 1:11:36
1:11:40

without all the other inventions what have been there at the same time?

speldo 1:11:40
1:11:43

It is a battery, everybody agrees with that,

speldo 1:11:43
1:11:45

but nobody knows why they made it.

speldo 1:11:45
1:11:48

And how they made it, what mind would think of that.

speldo 1:11:49
1:11:53

You know, electrical current that 7000 years ago.

speldo 1:11:53
1:11:55

It's very strange, but is clearly a battery.

speldo 1:11:56
1:11:59

The whole idea that ancients civilizations

speldo 1:11:59
1:12:03

actually had knowledge of electricity and used electricity

speldo 1:12:03
1:12:06

It's an accepted archaeological fact today.

speldo 1:12:06
1:12:11

Just like in our... own civilization where about 200 years ago,

speldo 1:12:11
1:12:14

Benjamin Franklin and others scientists began experimenting with

speldo 1:12:15
1:12:17

simple electrical devices,

speldo 1:12:17
1:12:18

We know have evidence...

speldo 1:12:18
1:12:19

... that...

speldo 1:12:19
1:12:21

... over 3000 years ago,

speldo 1:12:21
1:12:24

people were also experimenting with electrical devices.

speldo 1:12:25
1:12:26

Where may they have left them?

speldo 1:12:27
1:12:30

What other electrical devices were they been enable to create?

speldo 1:12:33
1:12:36

I believe that probably created all kinds of electrical devices.

speldo 1:12:38
1:12:39

Tombs,

speldo 1:12:39
1:12:40

temples,

speldo 1:12:40
1:12:42

ancient light bulbs,

speldo 1:12:42
1:12:43

even electricity.

speldo 1:12:44
1:12:46

Here on Earth exists evidence

speldo 1:12:46
1:12:49

of architectural and technological wonders,

speldo 1:12:49
1:12:52

centuries before we ever believe them posible.

speldo 1:12:53
1:12:56

but if evidence of ancient astronauts exists here on Earth,

speldo 1:12:57
1:12:59

What about elsewhere?

speldo 1:12:59
1:13:01

Might we find what we are looking for...

speldo 1:13:02
1:13:03

... by looking...

speldo 1:13:03
1:13:04

... in the sky.

speldo 1:13:10
1:13:14

Here at the ancient city of Teotihuacan in Mexico,

speldo 1:13:14
1:13:16

evidence suggests...

speldo 1:13:16
1:13:20

that ancient cultures possesed an incredibly accurate knowledge,

speldo 1:13:20
1:13:21

about neighboring planets.

speldo 1:13:23
1:13:26

Some scholars have even interpreted the number

speldo 1:13:26
1:13:28

and orientation of these pyramids,

speldo 1:13:28
1:13:30

to perfectly reflect a model...

speldo 1:13:30
1:13:32

... of our solar system.

speldo 1:13:34
1:13:38

Along the "Avenida de los muertos", The "Avenue of the Dead".

speldo 1:13:39
1:13:43

The pyramids there align in perfect distance...

speldo 1:13:44
1:13:46

of each of the orbit's...

speldo 1:13:46
1:13:50

of our planets in our solar system.

speldo 1:13:55
1:13:59

Perhaps significat is the fact that the large Pyramid of the Sun...

speldo 1:13:59
1:14:02

It's positioned at the center of the other structures.

speldo 1:14:03
1:14:04

Reflecting the fact...

speldo 1:14:04
1:14:07

... that the Sun is at the center of our solar system,

speldo 1:14:07
1:14:10

... and that the planets, revolve around it.

speldo 1:14:11
1:14:13

It was a known fact back then already,

speldo 1:14:14
1:14:17

that the Sun was at the center of our solar system,

speldo 1:14:17
1:14:23

wich "Western science" didn't find out until much, much later.

speldo 1:14:26
1:14:32

But just how could Teotihuacan's designers had known so early on...

speldo 1:14:32
1:14:36

... that the planets of our solar system, revolve around the sun?

speldo 1:14:37
1:14:39

Didn't that take...

speldo 1:14:39
1:14:41

many more centuries of scientific progress...

speldo 1:14:42
1:14:44

... and investigacion to figure out?

speldo 1:14:45
1:14:47

Interestingly enough...

speldo 1:14:47
1:14:49

... debunkers will say:

speldo 1:14:49
1:14:51

"Oh, this is just coincidence".

speldo 1:14:51
1:14:54

That this pyramids are aligned...

speldo 1:14:54
1:14:57

with the planets of our solar system.

speldo 1:14:57
1:15:00

But, if we go on the other side of the planet,

speldo 1:15:01
1:15:04

to Stonehenge, we have another ancient site

speldo 1:15:05
1:15:07

which is way older by the way than Teotihuacan.

speldo 1:15:09
1:15:13

Where if you look at Stonehenge from a bird's eye view,

speldo 1:15:14
1:15:17

You see that these are all concentric circles,

speldo 1:15:18
1:15:22

and each of these circles corresponds exactly...

speldo 1:15:22
1:15:26

... with the orbit of all of our planets...

speldo 1:15:26
1:15:28

...in our solar system.

speldo 1:15:29
1:15:33

So we have two places on Earth where we have the same thing.

speldo 1:15:37
1:15:42

In recent years, Stonehenge has also been interpreted by some archaeologists

speldo 1:15:43
1:15:45

to be a kind of astronomical calendar,

speldo 1:15:46
1:15:50

one which could be used to calculate advance, such as solar eclipses.

speldo 1:15:50
1:15:52

But if that were true,

speldo 1:15:52
1:15:56

whoever aligned these massive stones on the bare english landscape,

speldo 1:15:57
1:16:01

would have to effect precise astronomical knowledge of the path of the sun.

speldo 1:16:11
1:16:13

Built between the seventh and ninth centuries,

speldo 1:16:14
1:16:16

the stone temples of Tikal,

speldo 1:16:16
1:16:20

toward more than 2500 ft of Guatemala rain forest.

speldo 1:16:21
1:16:26

Tikal is home to one of the largest excavation sites in the world,

speldo 1:16:26
1:16:30

when with thousands of structures, still remains buried beneath the jungle.

speldo 1:16:30
1:16:35

According to most scientists, Tikal's Pyramids played an essential part...

speldo 1:16:35
1:16:38

in helping the Mayans advice their calendar.

speldo 1:16:40
1:16:44

by aligning the side lines between the highest points of the structures

speldo 1:16:45
1:16:48

ancient astronomers could pinpoint the most important days of the year.

speldo 1:16:49
1:16:51

such as an upcoming equinox...

speldo 1:16:51
1:16:52

... or solstice.

speldo 1:16:55
1:16:59

But, what also excites ancient astronaut theorists...

speldo 1:16:59
1:17:02

is how prefectly the layout of Tikal's pyramids...

speldo 1:17:02
1:17:07

correlate to the star map of the Pleyiades Orion region of the sky.

speldo 1:17:08
1:17:10

An overhead view of the structures,

speldo 1:17:10
1:17:14

almost exactly mirrors the alignement of the constellation.

speldo 1:17:15
1:17:18

This same outline has been spotted in an area...

speldo 1:17:18
1:17:20

far from Tikal...

speldo 1:17:20
1:17:21

much...

speldo 1:17:21
1:17:22

... much further.

speldo 1:17:23
1:17:25

Recently discovered on the Mars...

speldo 1:17:25
1:17:30

It's a cluster of land forms that offers a near perfect replication,

speldo 1:17:30
1:17:32

of the pyramid pattern of Tikal.

speldo 1:17:33
1:17:35

Three distinct locations,

speldo 1:17:35
1:17:37

one unique pattern.

speldo 1:17:39
1:17:40

Coincidence...

speldo 1:17:40
1:17:41

... or design?

speldo 1:17:44
1:17:49

At Tikal, the legends and the mythologies that we have,

speldo 1:17:49
1:17:52

all speak of the time...

speldo 1:17:52
1:17:58

when the gods intermingled and interconnected with our ancestors.

speldo 1:17:59
1:18:02

So Tikal also was built...

speldo 1:18:03
1:18:06

... as a message for future generations to see...

speldo 1:18:07
1:18:09

... that a long, long time ago,

speldo 1:18:09
1:18:12

we were visited by extraterrestrials.

speldo 1:18:12
1:18:16

Someone who have seen this have to actually relay the information to them

speldo 1:18:16
1:18:18

because they couldn't just guess, so...

speldo 1:18:19
1:18:21

I really start to rise a question the same,

speldo 1:18:21
1:18:25

This ancient astronaut theory really needs to have more life shed on the topic.

speldo 1:18:30
1:18:33

It's certanly possible that the ancient people not only measure

speldo 1:18:34
1:18:36

all of this... astronomy events

speldo 1:18:36
1:18:38

but we able to come up with a math mathematical theory.

speldo 1:18:38
1:18:39

To put in together,

speldo 1:18:40
1:18:42

and then to predict new things.

speldo 1:18:43
1:18:45

They shouldn't think that the ancient people were dummies.

speldo 1:18:46
1:18:52

Early man, people on ancient times didn't have dashboard mounted GPS unit's.

speldo 1:18:53
1:18:55

They had those...

speldo 1:18:55
1:18:57

"Path of the sun thru the sky",

speldo 1:18:57
1:19:00

"The path of the moon thru the sky",

speldo 1:19:00
1:19:02

They could see the stars at night,

speldo 1:19:02
1:19:06

these were prominent fictures that they could navigate from,

speldo 1:19:06
1:19:09

so, it's not surprising at all,

speldo 1:19:09
1:19:11

that almost every culture,

speldo 1:19:12
1:19:15

recorded astronomical phenomena,

speldo 1:19:15
1:19:18

We never look up at the sky and enjoy the beauty of it.

speldo 1:19:18
1:19:20

Ancient people didn't have electricity,

speldo 1:19:20
1:19:23

the sky would be so dark and the stars would be so bright.

speldo 1:19:24
1:19:25

Not only that, but they relied on the sky.

speldo 1:19:26
1:19:27

for directions...

speldo 1:19:27
1:19:30

for seasons on which to plant,

speldo 1:19:30
1:19:32

and for variety of things.

speldo 1:19:32
1:19:37

Today, with our GPS unit's, and navigation systems...

speldo 1:19:37
1:19:39

... and computers, we don't need to look at the sky.

speldo 1:19:41
1:19:44

I want to be very clear about one thing...

speldo 1:19:44
1:19:49

That our ancestors were as smart as we are today.

speldo 1:19:49
1:19:50

However, ...

speldo 1:19:50
1:19:55

I don't believe that ancient astronauts visited the Earth on the remote past.

speldo 1:19:55
1:19:56

I am convinced of this,

speldo 1:19:57
1:20:00

because of all the countless indications,

speldo 1:20:00
1:20:05

and pieces of evidence that we can find from all around the world,

speldo 1:20:05
1:20:07

in different ancient cultures,

speldo 1:20:07
1:20:09

in different mythologies and legends...

speldo 1:20:10
1:20:15

I know it happened, because if you look at all the pieces,

speldo 1:20:16
1:20:19

It's the only conclusion that you can draw.

speldo 1:20:21
1:20:22

But just why...

speldo 1:20:22
1:20:25

... were ancient people so focused on the sky...

speldo 1:20:25
1:20:27

... and the stars, in the first place?

speldo 1:20:28
1:20:30

Were they waiting for something to happened?

speldo 1:20:31
1:20:32

Or perhaps...

speldo 1:20:32
1:20:33

... for something,

speldo 1:20:33
1:20:34

... or someone,

speldo 1:20:34
1:20:36

... to return?

speldo 1:20:44
1:20:46

Four decades may be passed,

speldo 1:20:47
1:20:50

but ideas put for, by Erik Von Daniken,

speldo 1:20:50
1:20:52

are still captivating his followers.

speldo 1:20:52
1:20:54

and frustrating the skeptics...

speldo 1:20:54
1:20:55

... to this day.

speldo 1:20:56
1:20:59

Like an Old Testament prophet, or ancient shaman,

speldo 1:20:59
1:21:04

the author is still out here, spreading his firmly health message.

speldo 1:21:04
1:21:06

that "We are not alone."

speldo 1:21:06
1:21:09

The stone age people couldn't have drawn a straight line

speldo 1:21:09
1:21:12

through the mountains ranges for thousands of lines.

speldo 1:21:12
1:21:16

And our Stone Age friends did not arrange

speldo 1:21:16
1:21:18

thousands of stones in geometrical shapes.

speldo 1:21:18
1:21:20

Someone had to have directed this.

speldo 1:21:20
1:21:24

But while the proof of Von Daniken's theories maybe debatable,

speldo 1:21:25
1:21:26

their influence on movies,

speldo 1:21:28
1:21:29

TV series,

speldo 1:21:30
1:21:32

and even radio programs...

speldo 1:21:32
1:21:34

... is undeniable.

speldo 1:21:35
1:21:39

It's a tremendous lightning rod for fiction and for fictional story-telling.

speldo 1:21:40
1:21:43

The classic "Battlestar Galactica" serie start with a narration that said:

speldo 1:21:43
1:21:46

"There are those who believe that life here began out there

speldo 1:21:46
1:21:48

with tribes of humans far across the universe,

speldo 1:21:48
1:21:49

who may have been the forefathers

speldo 1:21:49
1:21:50

of the Egyptians,

speldo 1:21:50
1:21:51

and the Toltecs,

speldo 1:21:51
1:21:51

and the Mayans.

speldo 1:21:51
1:21:55

You know thats, straight out of Von Daniken as in that kind of believe, you know.

speldo 1:21:56
1:21:59

Puts us in contact with an idea of mythological intelligence,

speldo 1:21:59
1:22:02

and that is one of the things as we as humans beings crave desperately.

speldo 1:22:02
1:22:04

is that we are not alone in the world,

speldo 1:22:04
1:22:07

and that somebody else out there are they looking after us.

speldo 1:22:07
1:22:10

or coming to fight for us in that we unite against a common enemy.

speldo 1:22:15
1:22:19

I was reading lot of books from Erik Von Daniken,

speldo 1:22:19
1:22:20

and...

speldo 1:22:20
1:22:25

I can't imagine thats the true what he wrote in his books and so...

speldo 1:22:25
1:22:28

I can imagine this that we had

speldo 1:22:28
1:22:29

help of aliens,

speldo 1:22:30
1:22:30

but...

speldo 1:22:30
1:22:33

I don't know, I'm not sure.

speldo 1:22:34
1:22:36

We know so much in this world

speldo 1:22:36
1:22:38

and what we do now is so limited,

speldo 1:22:38
1:22:39

and everyday we finding more.

speldo 1:22:39
1:22:43

It... requires ask more questions and bigger questions and think bigger,

speldo 1:22:44
1:22:47

Its fast* something found on other planet

speldo 1:22:47
1:22:50

came to another lifeform, intelligent lifeform came in

speldo 1:22:50
1:22:51

... to this.

speldo 1:22:53
1:22:55

I mean, who knows, it could be,

speldo 1:22:55
1:22:59

because the origins of many things are lost in antiquety,

speldo 1:22:59
1:23:02

all we have are roundups and shreds of evidence

speldo 1:23:02
1:23:04

to suggest what might have happened.

speldo 1:23:05
1:23:07

Someone told me that it was proven that aliens...

speldo 1:23:07
1:23:10

... had part in this, I wouldnt be that surprised.

speldo 1:23:11
1:23:12

Why not?

speldo 1:23:14
1:23:20

To be honest, ancient astronauts theory has never crop of an discussion...

speldo 1:23:20
1:23:21

... with my collegues.

speldo 1:23:21
1:23:25

I don't care how many paints in too it with been,

speldo 1:23:25
1:23:28

we have never discussed ancient astronaut theory.

speldo 1:23:28
1:23:30

in any credible way whatsoever.

speldo 1:23:31
1:23:34

One of the good things about the ancient astronaut theory,

speldo 1:23:35
1:23:36

It's that it make us think.

speldo 1:23:37
1:23:39

brings out... the...

speldo 1:23:39
1:23:41

What about this?, What about that?.

speldo 1:23:41
1:23:43

We need explanations for all of these things.

speldo 1:23:43
1:23:46

And I think that one of the main reasons,

speldo 1:23:46
1:23:48

why mainstream archaeologists,

speldo 1:23:48
1:23:53

* a real nature reaction to the ancient astronaut theory,

speldo 1:23:53
1:23:55

is that, it's very disturbing to them,

speldo 1:23:55
1:23:58

because they don't have all the answers.

speldo 1:23:58
1:24:02

Some of them may believe that life could exist in the universe.

speldo 1:24:02
1:24:04

but the bottom line is...

speldo 1:24:04
1:24:07

"Show me the proof, show it to me... for real".

speldo 1:24:07
1:24:11

"I want to see the spaceship, I want to see something concrete".

speldo 1:24:11
1:24:15

not just a few pictures that everybody can interprete, as being...

speldo 1:24:15
1:24:16

... this... or that.

speldo 1:24:21
1:24:22

far-fetched,

speldo 1:24:22
1:24:23

ridiculous,

speldo 1:24:24
1:24:25

insane,

speldo 1:24:25
1:24:28

Ancient aliens visiting Earth centuries ago,

speldo 1:24:29
1:24:30

building monuments,

speldo 1:24:31
1:24:32

influencing scripture,

speldo 1:24:34
1:24:36

But what if all turned out to be true?

speldo 1:24:38
1:24:42

What would happend if just one piece of evidence turn up,

speldo 1:24:42
1:24:43

one stone,

speldo 1:24:43
1:24:44

one key,

speldo 1:24:44
1:24:48

that prove that Von Daniken had been right all along?

speldo 1:24:49
1:24:50

And if he is right,

speldo 1:24:50
1:24:53

What does that suggest about our future?

speldo 1:24:54
1:24:56

If alien visitors had come here before,

speldo 1:24:57
1:24:59

Would they come... again?

speldo 1:25:04
1:25:07

Even I think the idea of aliens are visiting us,

speldo 1:25:07
1:25:11

it's very exciting, interesting, and it be really cool if that happen.

speldo 1:25:11
1:25:13

So yet's people excited about the question,

speldo 1:25:13
1:25:15

maybe they start thinking about it,

speldo 1:25:15
1:25:16

and like many thing they may ultimately

speldo 1:25:16
1:25:18

come to thinking of the Physics

speldo 1:25:18
1:25:19

or the Archaeology.

speldo 1:25:19
1:25:21

and yet involved in the scientific process

speldo 1:25:21
1:25:23

So that could be a positive side efect,

speldo 1:25:23
1:25:25

of these theories and the popularization.

speldo 1:25:26
1:25:27

If it turns out,

speldo 1:25:28
1:25:31

that ancient astronaut theory, is wrong,

speldo 1:25:31
1:25:34

I will be the first one to say:

speldo 1:25:34
1:25:36

"Ok, no problem"

speldo 1:25:37
1:25:38

But so far...

speldo 1:25:38
1:25:42

... certain pieces of evidence, have not been debunk.

speldo 1:25:51
1:25:53

If the ancient alien astronaut theory,

speldo 1:25:54
1:25:55

is somehow proven to be true,

speldo 1:25:56
1:25:58

this could be a huge boom...

speldo 1:25:58
1:25:59

to my work,

speldo 1:25:59
1:26:02

into the search for other planets like Earth with life on them.

speldo 1:26:03
1:26:06

because, if aliens astronauts have visited Earth on the distant past...

speldo 1:26:07
1:26:08

it means they pretty near by,

speldo 1:26:08
1:26:10

and it means we don't have to look very far,

speldo 1:26:10
1:26:13

to find planets like Earth, with signs of life on them.

speldo 1:26:14
1:26:19

But evidence has to be treated with a grade of caution,

speldo 1:26:19
1:26:21

because it has different meanings.

speldo 1:26:22
1:26:27

I'm not sure what the reaction of the population will be.

speldo 1:26:28
1:26:34

It would strike them, the general concept of our history religions in the world,

speldo 1:26:34
1:26:37

means be looked at again with more respect.

speldo 1:26:37
1:26:39

and also in more wonder, meaning

speldo 1:26:39
1:26:43

What are we supose to make of this now, What are we supose be doing of this now.

speldo 1:26:44
1:26:47

If science detects life on Mars,

speldo 1:26:48
1:26:51

if science detectes a UFO,

speldo 1:26:51
1:26:54

then we need to take what science is saying to us

speldo 1:26:54
1:26:56

and begin to re-think about ourselves...

speldo 1:26:57
1:26:57

... on Earth,

speldo 1:26:57
1:27:00

in light of the possibility of new life.

speldo 1:27:01
1:27:03

Does that change our understanding of God?

speldo 1:27:04
1:27:06

It should if anything brighten it.

speldo 1:27:06
1:27:10

If we do find alien life, we should rejoice.

speldo 1:27:12
1:27:15

And honestly the way things are going on this planet right now,

speldo 1:27:15
1:27:19

I would welcomed a visitation every once in a life, a little help.

speldo 1:27:21
1:27:24

There is no doubt that my hypothesis

speldo 1:27:24
1:27:27

will be accepted by the mainstream.

speldo 1:27:27
1:27:30

Its maybe a question of just 5 or 10 years.

speldo 1:27:32
1:27:36

Sooner or later we will have contact with somene out there,

speldo 1:27:36
1:27:37

and then, the thinking...

speldo 1:27:38
1:27:39

... they will return.

speldo 1:27:39
1:27:41

and if you do not listen to Erik Von Daniken,

speldo 1:27:42
1:27:45

You will have the... "Shock of the Gods".

speldo 1:27:46
