Ufologists Predict When Aliens Will Return to Earth

December 9, 2018                     (sputniknews.com)

• At the 2018 UFO Summit conference in Brazil, ‘ancient astronauts’ proponents Erich von Daniken and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, revealed when they think when extraterrestrial beings will return to Earth. According to Tsoukalos, the ETs are waiting for humans need to achieve something first.

• “In my opinion, it is that we, as a society, we need to become more friendly with each other. We really need to start looking at ourselves and say, you know, we are all brothers and sisters on this planet, we really are. And it is up to us to clean up our house, here on Earth. And I think then, after we cleaned up our mess, that’s when they will make contact,” Tsoukalos said.

• Von Daniken the ETs who visited the Earth in the past promised to “return in the far future, and probably they are back already.” “Now, what can we learn from that? We have to learn to become humble. We are not unique. We are not the crown of creation, neither the top of evolution. We are just one of the millions of species in outer space. They will come back. They will teach us again,” von Daniken remarked.

• With the numerous UFO sightings, von Daniken suggest that “somebody is around this planet and obviously is observing us, maybe studying our languages, our microbacterias, our weapons, our religious systems, our political systems.” “They are watching us.”

 

During their appearance at the UFO Summit 2018 conference in Brazil, Erich von Daniken and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, two prominent ufologists and proponents of the ‘ancient astronauts’ theory which postulates that aliens visited Earth in the distant past and interacted with ancient humans, explained to Sputnik when these extraterrestrial entities might return.

According to Tsoukalos, the aliens didn’t attempt to make an official contact with mankind is that humans need to achieve something first.

“In my opinion, it is that we, as a society, we need to become more friendly with each other. We really need to start looking at ourselves and say, you know, we are all brothers and sisters on this planet, we really are. And it is up to us to clean up our house, here on Earth. And I think then, after we cleaned up our mess, that’s when they will make contact,” Tsoukalos said.

His sentiment was echoed by von Daniken who claimed that extraterrestrials who allegedly visited our planet in the past promised to “return in the far future, and probably they are back already.”

“Now, what can we learn from that? We have to learn to become humble. We are not unique. We are not the crown of creation, neither the top of evolution. We are just one of the millions of species in outer space. They will come back. They will teach us again,” he remarked.

Von Daniken also added that numerous suspected UFO sightings suggest that “somebody is around this planet and obviously is observing us, maybe studying our languages, our microbacterias, our weapons, our religious systems, our political systems.”
“They are watching us,” he surmised.

Artifact From An Ancient Civilization? The Truth is Out There – in Seattle

by Erik Lacitis                   December 1, 2018                     (seattletimes.com)

• In 1961, a 2×3-inch rock was found in a mountain range near Olancha, California. When split open, a perfectly circular, porcelain-like section containing a tiny pin that responded to a magnet was found inside. An X-ray clearly showed the metal pin with a spring or helix at one end. The other half of the object showed metal covering the porcelain-like cylinder.

• The relic, known as the “Coso Artifact”, is part of a display entitled “What is Reality” at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington.

• In Erich von Daniken’s latest book, “Impossible Truths: Amazing Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact”, he writes of the Coso Artifact, “The existence of the pin in an object that is at least 500,000 years old provides evidence of significant knowledge of metallurgy at that time.”

• Enter Pierre Stromberg, a software manager who has spent hundreds of hours researching the Coso Artifact. As a kid, Stromberg read von Daniken’s “Chariots of the Gods?”, which theorizes extraterrestrials influenced early human life. But he lost respect for von Daniken due to his impression that von Daniken would ‘obfuscate’ his assertions. “[S]ome ancient astronaut proponents were not just wrong, they were willfully dishonest,” says Stromberg.

• In 1999, Stromberg contacted the Spark Plug Collectors of America. Club member Chad Windham remembers looking at the X-ray of the Coso Artifact and identified it as a spark plug – a Champion-brand spark plug, in fact – and not half-million year-old extraterrestrial relic. Stromberg thinks that the spark plug may have come from mining equipment.

• Well then, how did a spark plug end up inside a rock? Geologists call it a concretion, when sediment builds up in successive layers around something like a shell or pebble. That’s good enough for Stromberg.

 

For 57 years, since its discovery by three rockhounds in the mountains of Eastern California, an oblong, 2- by 3-inch stonelike mass has been at the heart of speculation around the world.

Oh, how we want to believe that the truth is out there.

Was it a rock embedded 500,000 years ago with an electronic device left on earth by alien visitors? Or was it the remnant of a long-gone advanced civilization?

Beginning Saturday, you can see it for yourself at the Pacific Science Center.

Why all the speculation?

When the rocklike object was sliced in half shortly after its discovery, a perfectly circular, porcelain-like section was found inside it. In the center of that section was a tiny pin that responded to a magnet.

An X-ray clearly showed the metal pin, with a spring or helix at one end. The other half of the object showed metal covering the porcelain-like cylinder.

How could this technology end up inside such a primeval mass?

It became known as the “Coso Artifact,” after the California mountain range in which it was found.
Like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, the Coso Artifact became the subject of widespread conjecture and speculation. The advent of the internet put that speculation into hyperdrive.

The Coso Artifact is featured in a YouTube video titled “Top 5 Artifacts That PROVE Past Advanced Civilizations Existed,” which has gotten 2.8 million views.

                       Pierre Stromberg

Enter Pierre Stromberg, a Woodinville software manager, who has spent hundreds of hours researching the artifact. It’s because of his work that the artifact is at the Pacific Science Center as part of a display space titled “What is Reality,” which also includes a walk-through virtual-reality adventure.

The Science Center says the purpose is “to confront a broad variety of mind-bending topics” alongside “scientists and innovators who are shaping the future.”

Stromberg, 54, a 1986 graduate in computer science from Manhattan College in the Bronx, where he grew up, says that as a kid he read Erich von Daniken’s “Chariots of the Gods?”, which theorizes extraterrestrials influenced early human life. Pretty neat stuff, he thought back then.

Stromberg says that in 1977, when he was 13, he lost his admiration for von Daniken after watching a TV interview with the author.

“I was stunned how von Daniken continued to obfuscate and maintain his assertions. I realized that some ancient astronaut proponents were not just wrong, they were willfully dishonest,” says Stromberg. “It really bothered me that I had let myself be influenced by them.”

Do These Prehistoric UFO Drawings Prove We Are Not Alone?

by Sebastian Kettley               April 27, 2018                 (express.co.uk)

• 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.

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.
