• From the Egyptian pyramids to the mysterious Nazca Lines and the ominous heads of Easter Island, the creation of many ancient constructions has been attributed to interstellar visitors. Here are the top five:

• #1. The Helicopter Hieroglyphs in the 3,000-year-old Temple of Seti I in Abydos, Egypt depict images of what appears to be a helicopter and futuristic aircraft.

• #2. Ten thousand year old murals found in the caves of Charama, Chhattisgarh, India depict a ‘craft’ with three legs and a fan-like antenna, similar to a UFO.

• #3. Rock carvings in the Alpine valley of Val Camonica, Italy, contain a large collection of prehistoric petroglyphs carved out some 8,000 years before the Bronze Age. Among the scenes of people and animals are humanoid beings depicted with ‘radiating’ helmets on their heads and oddly shaped ‘weapons’.

• #4. In the Palace of Ashurnasirpal II, King of Assyria, an archeological site just north of Baghdad, Iraq dating back to 879 BC, a stone panel on a wall contains the depiction of the Mesopotamian god Ashur inside of an orb with outstretched wings as that of an alien traveler.

• #5. The sarcophagus lid of Mayan king Pacal located in the Mayan city-state of Palenque in southern Mexico, depicts an intricately detailed ancient astronaut at the control center of a space ship. As Chariots of the Gods author Erich von Däniken notes: “In the center of that frame is a man sitting, bending forward. He has a mask on his nose, he uses his two hands to manipulate some controls, and the heel of his left foot is on a kind of pedal with different adjustments… The rear portion is separated from him; he is sitting on a complicated chair, and outside of this whole frame, you see a little flame like an exhaust.”

 

From the raising of the Egyptian pyramids to the mysterious Nazca Lines and the ominous heads of Easter Island, the creation of many ancient constructions has been attributed to interstellar visitors.

For decades, these impressive man-made sites have been scoured by crypto-archeologists in the hopes of discovering evidence of extraterrestrial intervention.

Over the years many claimed to have uncovered concrete proof of ancient carvings, cave paintings and other iconography that is indisputable proof of UFOs.

But what are some of the most convincing of these supposedly alien depictions from a time long past?

1. The Helicopter Hieroglyphs in the Temple of Seti I

The magnificent great Pyramids of Giza are popular fodder for conspiracy theories and the whole of the ancient Egyptian civilisation has in one way or another been linked to bizarre alien conspiracies.

But one of the most convincing bits of evidence aliens have in fact helped raise the ancient civilisation is a set of unusual hieroglyphs in the 3,000-year-old Temple of Seti in Abydos, Egypt.

Among conspiracy forums, the icons have become known as the “Helicopter Hieroglyphs” for supposedly showing eerie pictures of what appears to be a helicopter and futuristic aircraft.

Some pseudo-archeologists who have seen the glyphs in person claimed they were left behind by time travellers while other suggested they were left behind to honour alien visitors.

Most genuine archeologists however will agree the icons are the simple result of typographical errors – overlapping symbols in a day and age where typos were quite literally set in stone.

2. The UFO ancient murals of Charama

This bizarre looking painting found in a cave in India has baffled scientists for its supposed depiction of an alien UFO beaming in the sky.

The puzzling mural from Charama, Chhattisgarh, dates back some 10,000 years to a time before humans have invited the wheel.

Archaeologist JR Bhagat who studied the cave paintings in 2014 argued they were concrete evidence Aliens have walked among us in the past.

He said: “The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers.

“Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject.”

He added: “The fan-like antenna and the three legs of the vehicle’s stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft.”

3. The alien astronaut rock murals of Val Camonica

The rock carvings in the Alpine valley of Val Camonica, Italy, are one of the world’s largest collection of prehistoric petroglyphs.

Most of the glyphs were carved out some 8,000 years before the Bronze Age, and typically depict the everyday trappings of early man, such as scenes of people and animals.

                 Val Camonica, Italy

But a set of particular carvings has convinced conspiracy theories some of the glyphs represent alien astronauts walking among them.

The glyphs in question appear to show men with radiating helmets on their heads, wielding oddly shaped weapons – perhaps in battle.

UFO hunters from around the globe believe these images to be indisputable proof.

• Friday, April 27, 2018 marks the 13th season of the History Channel show Ancient Aliens. The premiere episode is entitled ‘The UFO Conspiracy’ and will deal with the Pentagon revelations that came out in December of 2017 revealing that the U.S. Government has been researching and exploring UFO’s for years. Not only has the U.S. Government admitted to it, but they allowed the release of video footage that shows how fast and maneuverable are these UFOs. This UFO video footage will be featured in this premiere episode.

• ‘Ancient Aliens‘ host Giorgio Tsoukalos is one of many who have been telling us for decades what the Pentagon is just now admitting – that we are not alone in the universe. In the 1950’s and 60’s the question was whether extraterrestrial intelligence exists in the universe. Today, most astronomers will concede that intelligent life must exist elsewhere, and the question has become do they interact with us now on Earth? The answer, says Tsoukalos, can be found by the evidence here on Earth.

• “I am 100% convinced that our history goes back much much [earlier] than what accepted archeology teaches us,” says Tsoukalos. “Our ancestors… were meticulous in writing down their history as it happened to them at the time… [T]he origin of all the stories were the same – someone came and taught mankind.”

• “There is no question in my mind that our worldwide history goes further and deeper into time than we currently accept as the mainstream idea,” says Tsoukalos. For example, by studying the erosion marks of the Great Sphinx in Egypt, geologist Dr. Robert Schoch, believes that it dates back to 12,000 BC. This coincides with ‘The Golden Age’ of ancient Egypt, in 12,500 BC when so-called “gods” with a lower case ‘g’ (ie: technologically advanced extraterrestrial beings), mingled with human beings on Earth.

 

In the last several decades the topic of whether we are “alone” in the universe has always been a controversial one. As long as there have been reported “sightings”, the government has been denying that the “sightings” were true. However, in 2017 the New York Times released a story that proved that the US Government has been more concerned about the possibility of UFO’s than they lead the citizens of the country to believe. The New York Times reported that the US Government did indeed have a program called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The program lost its funding in 2012 but experts believe it has found funding under another name.

As the story of the US Government finally breaking their silence on one of the biggest and most tight-lipped topics in Washington DC hits major news sources, we turn our focus to the men and women who have been telling us for decades what the Pentagon is just now admitting. We are not alone in the universe.

I had the distinct honor of speaking with one of those brilliant minds today, ‘Ancient Aliens‘ host Giorgio Tsoukalos. I was so honored and excited to do this interview. It is not every day you are able to hold this kind of discussion with someone with the kind of passion he has for his work and I was extremely moved to learn as much as I could in our short time together.

                 Giorgio Tsoukalos

RB: What convinced you that the Ancient Alien theory could    be valid and that it needed further research and exploration?

GT: I was very lucky growing up with parents who were avid travelers. Ever since I was 6, 7 and 8 years old, my parents would travel to various countries and they would always carve out time to go the museums and to great gigantic monumental archeological sites. Also, my grandmother was a very open minded woman, and instead of reading ordinary bedtime stories to me, sometimes she would read would read Edgar Cayce ‘Atlantis‘ and ‘Chariots of the Gods‘. So the seed was planted fairly early in my life. Then, when I was around 14 or 15, I discovered the books by Erich von Däniken on my own, and as they say, the rest is history.

RB: Do you feel that the topic of Aliens and UFOs has become more accepted in the recent years-not just by the general public-but in the scientific field?

GT: Absolutely. I also think ‘Ancient Aliens‘ has been a huge influencer on that opinion today than, let’s say, in the 50’s and 60’s. There were only a few astronomers who were toying with the question if extra-terrestrial intelligence exists in the rest of the universe.

However, here we are 50 years later, and you would be very hard pressed to find any astronomer denying the idea of extra-terrestrial life. Even though the big question they have now is whether or not that life has had interactions with us here on Earth. That, of course, is answered through the ancient astronaut question. Bio-astronomers are at universities doing research and trying to find whether or not there are remnants of extra-terrestrial visitations in our solar system and on other planets. The question is, “Why are you looking at other planets, when the true evidence is right here in front of our eyes?” We should be looking right here on planet Earth.

RB: You have visited so many of the ancient sites, for example, Tribal and First Nations. They seem to all have similar creation accounts. What are the most common threads that stand out?

GT: That is a wonderful observation, and thank you for that question.

Let’s say we look at 20, just for argument’s sake. 20 ancient cultures dating back 3000 years. All the creation stories for each culture would be different, but most of the creation stories are the same. They talk about a silver egg, or a silver orb, arriving from the depths of nothingness that lands on Earth. Then, the egg or orb opens, and people emerge. From there on out, civilizations have begun. So, one has to ask the question, “Is this a figment of our ancestor’s imaginations or did they actually witness something.”

The one thing we have to remind ourselves is, it’s not me or the Ancient Aliens show that are inventing these stories. We can read these ancient accounts of someone descending from the sky on ancient text and also in oral traditions.

So, the fact is that our ancestors are the ones who say they have been visited. It is not us today who are just now saying it. It is our ancestors who were meticulous in writing down their history as it happened to them at the time. Of course, things were added over time. Stories were embellished, but the origin of all the stories were the same-someone came and taught mankind.

RB: Do you think it is possible that ancient civilizations much older than we think existed here on Earth, and they may have been some species other than human?

GT: I can’t answer to the question of other species because I am not aware of that, but, I am 100% convinced that our history goes back much much later than what accepted archeology teaches us.

I am not saying these things lightly. I am basing these ideas on research of scientists, because I don’t have a degree in science. I am a journalist. I talk about these ideas. For example, Dr. Robert Schoch, a bonafide scientist (a geologist) tells me that physical evidence, (the erosion marks of the great Sphinx in Egypt, Gisa Plato) indicate to him that the Sphinx may date back to 12,000 BC. I shall listen to a Geologist who has come to that conclusion.

There is ancient text that speaks of The Golden Age of ancient Egypt, back in 12,500 BC. It was a time when so-called “gods” with a lower case g, mingled among the human beings, so, there is no question in my mind that our worldwide history goes further and deeper into time than we currently accept as the mainstream idea.

Converging lines of evidence show the media, factions within the US Pentagon and mainstream science are taking UFOs seriously – while the White House remains silent.

A ZlandCommunications Editorial
 
 

In a report by NBC News, a Penn State astrophysicist contends that if spacefaring extraterrestrials ever did enter our solar system, perhaps these species might have produced artefacts or other technosignatures that have survived to the present day on any planet in our solar system.

As this dialogue expands, US and Canadian mainstream media have also taken the initiative to create headlines about the Pentagon’s high level of interest in UFOs.

Science, the media and government have traditionally shown disinterest, silence and even hostility towards the UFO/ET issue. This now appears to have changed dramatically.

These three terrestrial edifices of conventional wisdom, whether they realize it or not, have inadvertently and independently produced three converging lines of evidence that point in one direction: The imminent possibility of an extraterrestrial footprint in our star system. After decades of silence and resistance these three entities seem to be talking the same language.

THE CONVERGING LINES OF EVIDENCE

One line of inquiry points to an admission by the Pentagon that it authorized the release of now, three gun-camera videos, each obtained by Navy F/A-18 jets of multiple intercepts of UFOs. Each video has been authorized for release by Pentagon officials.

The second line of inquiry reveals the Pentagon admitted the existence of a $22 million program to investigate UFOs from 2007 to 2012. The retired head of that program Luis Elizondo is on record – stating he feels the program still operates.

A third line of inquiry is an academic statement by a tenured astronomer at Penn State University about the possible existence of intelligent off-world civilizations.

Upon analysis of these converging lines of evidence it becomes clear these evidentiary facts have much more in common than one might suspect.

THE MEDIA and GOVERNMENT
Thus far in Canada and the United States alone – six prominent mainstream media outlets in North America have assigned distinguished journalists and high-powered investigative news programs to cover the UFO/ET issue.

Each of these six prominent 21st century news organizations have decided to cover UFO/ET news in a fair and open manner – devoid of the ridicule and giggle factors that characterized their predecessors’ treatment of this matter:

  • CTV NEWS – Canada’s largest independent news outlet. CTV coverage,
  • America’s number one rated 60 Minutes – a CBS flagship of news and analysis interviewed billionaire entrepreneur Robert Bigelow on the UFO/ET matter,
  • MSNBC discussed the Pentagon’s UFO program,
  • ABC News coverage also engaged the UFO/ET matter.

This unexpected and revolutionary form of discourse among the mainstream media is gathering momentum – making more and more doubters feel that if conventional mainstream media is chatting up the ET factor in this way, perhaps it is time to take these matters more seriously.

Now science – the ever constant and established arbiter of conventional wisdom – is stepping forward to suggest – we may not be alone and may never have been. 
 
Early astronomers Ptolemy, Galileo and Copernicus shattered the mold of the long-held belief that the Earth was the centre of the solar system – might Dr. Wright, his colleagues and perhaps all of science be on the verge of a new paradigm of belief?
 

THE SCIENCE

In an abstract, a Penn State academic states: “The origins and possible locations for technosignatures of such a prior indigenous technological species, which might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars.”

Penn State astrophysicist Dr. Jason Wright told John Wenz of NBC News MACH“We need experts in a variety of fields across astrobiology, geology, and anthropology to look at all the data to make concrete statements about whether there’s a chance that advanced space aliens once lived or visited here.”

This unprecedented statement by a leading astrophysicist indicating that an ET presence in our solar system is entirely plausible should, on its own merits, be explored. The contention by Wright is significant for two ardently existential reasons.

First – the UFO/ET issue has long-suffered the criticism that mainstream science and more specifically astronomers have always been reluctant to render any public and substantive statements on an ET presence. Traditional science has long held that it is not even remotely interested in discussing the proposition that intelligent off-world civilizations may have made their presence felt in our star system. Our Earth-bound modes of reasoning have never included this hypothesis.

Although slowly, these reservations seem to be evaporating. This new kind of proclamation out of Penn State is not only extremely unusual and a departure from the status quo – it certainly implies mainstream science is now preparing itself for a much more comprehensive conversation about the much maligned UFO/ET issue.

Why so? Quite simple actually… Any discussion about the existence of extraterrestrials – by default – leads journalists and scientists into the voluminous evidentiary documentation that the UFO phenomenon has been discussed, analyzed and sequestered at the highest levels of governance on the planet for decades. This mode of investigation has never been fully explored by media entities normally bent on celebrity adulation, the stock market or exposing the simplistic notion of government impropriety, waste or a president who appears unable to grasp the meaning and significance of the American Constitution. 

The human family is faced with much larger and more intuitive matters of existentialism – matters that recognize the individual as capable of understanding the significance of his or her own rights – not those donative rights given to them by the state which can be so arbitrarily taken away at any time – but those rights of natural law – the human right to freedom and control over his or her own destiny and development. This is where the UFO/ET issue resides in the human consciousness. It loiters but still operates within a dichotomous cosmos of spiritual simplicity but one of immensely incomprehensible complexity.

Given this unique and often unarticulated context – clear lines of converging evidence dramatically demonstrate that multiple levels of orchestrated government secrecy and lies are now in question. It is now obvious government has – in fact – remained audibly silent on and lied to its citizens about the UFO/ET matter for over 70 years. Does this mendacity conjure suggestions of a cover-up or dare we say – a conspiracy?

THE ULTIMATE TAKE AWAY
This tincture of science and news reporting may represent an emulsion and not an oil and water dichotomy. Considering the connectivity of ideas – add to this mix the governmental and geo-political implications of an ET presence and one is looking at a ready-made literary cocktail – capable of re-writing history. 

These seemingly mutually exclusive lines of inquiry now appear to have some common ground – a galactic intersection with Earthly and alien pedestrians crossing every which way to get to the other side.

If a renowned Penn State astrophysicist like Dr. Jason Wright is making these kinds of statements – might we not want to pay a little closer attention. Much in the same way we would if he had proclaimed, “We have found a cure for cancer…” Both are stunning propositions – maybe we can believe both if ET technologies are as advanced as the experts say they may appear to be. 

If the UFOs being seen by pilots are indeed of non-Earth origin as many believe, then we can only assume that these off-world civilizations possess the capacity to conquer the vast interstellar distances of space using unimaginable energy sources, technologies and exotic propulsion systems that make possible light speed travel – might they also have eliminated disease as well as their own extinction behaviours? Advancing these kinds of discussions can only enlighten and allow for possibilities – rejecting them is done at our peril.

The second reason why this matter is significant is that NBC and CBS News are credited with being two of, if not the highest rated US mainstream news media outlets. This departure from traditional mainstream news ridicule of the ET issue creates what appears to be a contemporaneous and reformative rise in the level of interest in the possible existence of off-world intelligences that may have made their presence felt in our star system. Might then other mainstream news outlets, government officials and other segments of society want to pay closer attention?

These growing and concurrent shifts in consciousness and ideology from both the academic/scientific community and American mainstream journalism illustrates a revised attitude toward a conversation about ET life and the truth that has been sequestered behind walls of secrecy for so very long. 

Dr. Wright’s statement and one by Harvard professor Dr. Avi Loeb has upset the traditional apple-cart among astronomers who hold tight to the view that there is no evidence of an ET presence anywhere in the known cosmos – a world-view that espouses there is no logical sense in pursuing this matter. 

Loeb stated in the same NBC article, “There could have been a visit by another alien civilization…” from another solar system. The aliens might have visited us in person, he said, or via some form of space probe. [Should We Be Looking for Space Aliens a Bit Closer to Home? – NBC MACH Aug.29.2017]

MORE QUESTIONS ARISE
Now that Dr. Wright and some of his colleagues are asking these kinds of questions – is it not now time to talk more seriously about extraterrestrials, UFOs and a cosmos that may be teeming with life? 

Does the next stage in evolution of this matter foresee the media and science sustain their lines of inquiry to pressure and openly challenge the White House and other indolent levels of governance to come clean? Why is this level of discourse so important?

First, this quality of mainstream coverage would have been unheard of even 5 years ago. Second, this level of coverage by the media reaches far beyond the ‘UFO choir-of-the-converted’ and into the living rooms, kitchens, libraries, government offices, news rooms and professional institutions where those who inhabit these places go about their business – blissfully unaware of and oblivious to the facts rooted in this matter. It is in these places where the cosmically impaired reside. It is here where what the late Dr. John Mack called – the ‘battle over world views’ – will be won.

Given that Ptolemy, Galileo and Copernicus began putting major cracks in the outmoded scientific and religious slate of beliefs of the day by imprinting a new paradigm onto reality, it turns out Dr. Wright and his colleagues in addition to the media and the Pentagon might all be on the verge of cracking a few more tablets themselves.
 
At the vanishing point of these converging lines of evidence we are left with two conclusions:
  • Science – government and media are now – for the first time in history – on the same page. It’s taken 70 years – but the wait has been worth it, and, 
  • We are not alone and never have been.
It’s finally time to talk seriously about UFOs and Extraterrestrial life.
