Ancient Alien/Gods


My cousin was telling me about ancient civilizations who had wall carvings depicting aliens or astronauts, I think it was Babylon or Sumeria, how true is this?

Not true. He was watching that horrible Ancient Aliens documentary.

Not even slightly true, but there are lots of people who look at old paintings and statues to find ones that, if you squint a bit, could be interpreted as aliens, in order that they can use them to sell crap books and worse television.

There's already a thread discussing Ancient Aliens here.

Hey, that's my favorite documentary!

I have seen a number of shows that show some ancient drawings which the producers say "must be" aliens. I don't believe it for a minute.

The most famous, I believe is an Aztec figure purporting to be an alien.

There's also the Wandjinas of Aboriginal art that are often claimed to be aliens

It's all completely true. Aliens visited us and built all those ancient monuments. The voices in my head say so.
