Thumbs up Ancient Aliens Season 1

Has anyone been watching this series on the History Channel ? Looks like the blu ray is out October 2010. The last episode is on tonight May 25th.

Some of the information is pretty far out there. However, some looks interesting to say the least.

Yeah, I've been watching it. Pretty cool stuff. Out there? Nah, not reallly...it's actually starting to make me question my Faith. In this past Sunday's First Reading (I'm Catholic) from the Acts of Apostles, it pretty much described an alien encounter that injected everybody present with a universal translator.

The way I look at it, probably every mention of the Gods in the Bible could be explained as being extra-terrestial encounters. Think about it, if aliens could travel at or above the speed of light, their visits to Earth 2000-2500 years ago could seem just like yesterday to them.

Here's the Passage in question:

Sunday, May 23, 2010 Pentecost Mass
First Reading: Acts 2:1-11
Quote:
When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were.
A spaceship with retro landing thrusters?

Quote:
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
A laser or hot beam of light?

Quote:
Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem. At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd, but they were confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
Universal translator?

Quote:
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked, "Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans? Then how does each of us hear them in his own native language? We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites, inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene, as well as travelers from Rome, both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs, yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues of the mighty acts of God."
I rest my case.

Deep stuff indeed.

Or maybe if you go with my theory that if there is intelligent extra-terrestrial life out there, God purposelly spaced them far enough away from each other to where we could never interact with each other.

Even traveling at light speed those alien life forms would have to be able to live for a long time. For instance, the closest star system to us is Alpha Centauri, which is over 4 light years away. 4 light years doesnt seem like a long time but if you travel to that spot going at the speed of the fastest spacecraft we have, it would take 19,000 years, and even going 1% of the speed of light (which is still well beyond anything we can currently dream about) it would take 435 years. Intelligent life would have to be very close because if they are coming from let's say 100 light years, they would have to be damn near immortal to make that journey.

Were you raised Catholic, or did you choose that faith?
Because Calamari Marionette Ph.D sounded pompous, that's why.

Or have Warp 10 engines. Or at least cryosleep.

Born, and raised, going on 37 years now. But if you've watched the series, one episode touched on that these aliens may have been on a "teaching humans the righteous way to live" via the Ten Commandments.

Ever wonder why some UFO sightings happen around military bases that deal with nuclear technology? Maybe these aliens are concerned that we have developed technology that can destroy us a hundred times over.

All I know, is that if you look at most of the Biblical stories, and applied modern sensibilities to them, they could all possiby be explained by the ancient alien theory.

On the contrary, I have a real big problem with atheists. In essense, atheists would deny the ancient alien theory as well if extrapolated out.

I don't believe in the theory of evolution all that much neither. Because the fact is that the large majority of species that ever existed on Earth are extinct. Why? Because they couldn't evolve and adapt to new changes, or because each species were created as is?

The way this show grasps at straws is amazing. It literally has not one shred of real evidence of alien encounters. People make up stories today why is it so hard to believe that people did the same thing thousands of years ago.

Not one shred of evidence? All the cave paintings and heiroglyphs aren't enough for ya?

Giorgio Tsoukalos's hair is the craziest thing ever. Love this show. They have it on On Demand, so you don't have to sit through commercials. Can't wait for the blu-ray.

Duuuuude it's a series, with each show covering different topics. And duuuuude.....there's plenty of "evidence" BUT who knows if they're just old stories or real? That's the beauty of it.

Whether you believe in this sort of thing or not, it is very interesting to see all these ancient cultures (that are sometimes continents apart) shared the same general stories.

Yes you COULD translate it like that. But the bible is clear in stating that it is a spiritual being. So the question is why WOULD you translate it like that? It seems obvious that you don't possess a strong faith in Catholicism if you question your faith over alien theories. Not knocking you. I have very weak faith too.

Isn't this based on the book Chariots of the Gods? I read this a few years ago and enjoyed it, think some of the stuff has since been solved though, ie, the exploding asteroid over Cyberia. But if it delves deeper into the subjects then I may watch it, if it's out over here.

That seem interesting. I have yet to see it. I am sure History TV will probably have it soon over here.

They had a show a few months ago titled "Chariots, Gods & Beyond". It's listed in the Ancient Aliens episode guide on their website, so I guess it's part of the series

I don't remember much (the newer episodes seem better anyway), but they referenced his book quite a bit in it. While I haven't seen any refs in the new episodes, the author, Erich von Däniken (who is the least interesting of all the interviewees and seems the most hokey) appears.

"Hokey" doesn't even begin to describe Erich von Däniken:

Quote:
Some also question von Däniken's credibility, as he has also knowingly put forward fraudulent evidence to advance his hypotheses, such as photographs of pottery "depicting UFOs", supposedly from an archaeological dig dating back to the biblical era. The PBS television series Nova determined that this was a fraud, and even located the potter who made them. When confronted with this evidence, von Däniken argued that the deception was justified because some people would only believe his theories if they saw actual proof.[7]

I saw that in his Wiki profile, but the guy's written about 30 books I think, so I'm sure he's not a complete fraud. Then again....who knows?

Or they could just fold space and time to cut their time significantly and their distance shorter.
