I read Daniken when I was a teen, too- and i looked at everything from the point of view of whether it COULD depict space aliens... but then, I just could not get over the fact these ancient cultures never DID a single thing that required anything more sophisticated than ropes, rocks, and time.... for me the cincher was that egyptian illustration showing them moving a colossus- On a wooden sled- with a few hundred guys pulling on ropes. You would have thought that the space aliens might have clued them into to something as low tech as the Wheel - or a Winch. I mean- all an ancient would have had to see is ONE wheel, and they would have gotten the concept.I'll admit that for a short time back in the days I did think there was something in this transposition of images on some of the walls at Karnak, before realizing it was hokum. That's the danger of Lubicz, he actually knew his onions and did good work at Karnak, so in youthfull naivety you at first don't see the hokum elements for what they are. I read Daniken when I was about fourteen and thought he had nailed it, oh well....
And then I considered that in the ancient world- they had no books, no TV, no radio nor record players... no Angry Birds nor Fortnight... no surfing, jet skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding or any other form of time killing diversions.
They had millions of people, and those people had nothing BUT time on their hands... plenty of time to bang out a granite obelisk using nothing but a harder rock.
What gets me is that Disinforming people has become a whole industry- from the Flat earthers who don't really think the earth is flat, but are happy to monetize a Utube channel making silly claims... to the "ufologists" who figured out how to turn credulity into cash thru book deals and appearance fees.
The History channel used to have actual HISTORY content on it... ( sure- 80% about hitler...but real history ) Today, it 3/4 make believe lunacy teaching its viewers how to be unable to tell shinola from sh- ows on their channel.
