The following is a brilliant documentary that systematically debunks the History Channels Ancient Aliens series that aired in 2010. Of special significance is the new theory as to how the pyramids were built. Incredible to see with the help of animations.
My biggest hope is that the true lesson in this gets through. The lesson being that our knowledge should be based on context and prompt us to do some comparative research ourselves. I’m fascinated that we always try and make our ancient forefathers primitive because they worked with stone. We may one day understand that a world wide society once roamed this planet that was capable of living in harmony with the nature around them to such a degree that it made them far superior to us.
To say that we are the only sentient beings in the universe is just as ignorant as saying that we are now at the pinnacle of human society. Why do we sell ourselves and our species short? Why is there always a meme in the mainstream that makes us view our origins with a certain shame. Is it so we can feel better about ourselves in our time, is it some sort of perverse pride/ego thing? Wouldn’t it be better to try and recover what has been lost?
The larger issue is that the History channel and the like (mainstream) use shows like this, ancient aliens with high production values, to disseminate information they know is inevitably going to be debunked. This causes legitimate seemingly related avenues of research to get discredited. Hopefully for most of you this is not the case. So I hope if anything this show makes you even more inquisitive and less skeptical.
