Throughout history, unorthodox theories and uncomfortable writings, such as the notion of ancient extraterrestrial existence, have been immediately censored and condemned as “works of the devil.”
However, many forbidden texts have survived.
Analysis of these ancient texts has revealed remarkable concepts that include the possibility of ancient civilizations being in contact with extraterrestrial beings, detailed descriptions of spacecraft and their mechanics, accounts of “sky men” and gods living among mortals, stories of weapons of mass destruction, “sons of God,” and sightings of spheres of fire in the sky.
These mysteries raise essential questions about the possibility of past visits to Earth by ancient aliens, their intervention in human evolution, and hidden histories waiting to be discovered.
Studying the Egyptian Celestial Boats has been a fascinating subject in ancient Egyptian literature for researchers and enthusiasts alike.
Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, which first appeared in the 4th millennium BC, gradually evolved from commercial notes to religious, economic, and historical texts.
Egyptian literature was developed during the dynasties III-VI (2778-2263 BC), particularly during the Old Kingdom when the “Pyramid Texts” were written.
These mysterious texts were first inscribed on the walls of the royal pyramids at Saqqara during the 5th and 6th Dynasties of the Old Kingdom (2686–2181 BCE) and are some of the oldest known religious texts in the world.
Their purpose was to help deceased pharaohs in their journey to the afterlife.
The texts include spells, incantations, hymns, and prayers that were believed to give the pharaoh the knowledge and power needed to reach the afterlife and become one with the gods.
However, the golden age of Egyptian literature is considered to be that of the 12th dynasty (2000-1783 BC), during which the most beautiful poems and stories were written, including descriptions of “celestial boats.”
These boats were used as vessels for the gods Ra, Ptah, Amon, and Osiris, as well as the pharaohs believed to be “chosen by the gods.”
It is worth noting that the Egyptian civilization left more representations of gods with wings or bird heads than any other ancient civilization. This fact raises questions about whether these descriptions are solely products of imagination or have material support.
Could these descriptions be accounts of ancient aliens from space? Did these advanced beings influence the development of the ancients?
The Hindu texts, believed to have originated in the 1000s BC and possibly much earlier, are a treasure trove of ancient wisdom.
The Rigveda, a renowned Hindu poem, dates back to 1500 BC. The Mahabharata and Ramayana, two of the most famous Hindu epics, were likely written in the fifth and third centuries BC, respectively.
Despite the first recorded transcription dating back only to the third century BC, the ancient Hindu texts are replete with references to intriguing elements, such as the “Vimanas” – famous flying ships – and gods arriving from the cosmos with weapons of incredible power.
Some researchers have even linked these weapons to today’s thermonuclear, meteorological, biological, or radioactive weapons.
Furthermore, the texts contain remarkable notions about the micro- and macro-universe and their connections. All these unusual accounts have led to speculations about potential contact between old civilizations and ancient aliens.
The Samarangana Sutradhara, written over 3,000 years ago, describes a strange event that suggests ancient aliens traveled from space aboard a spaceship.
The text describes in great detail a bizarre mechanism far beyond the technological capabilities of the people of that time.
The device consisted of a heavy metal box in the middle of a carriage. The box was filled with “living silver,” which served as a power source.
The generated power passed through two revolving cylinders at the opposite ends of the carriage and through another eight cylinders in front and behind the two, which moved and had two rows of holes directed downwards.
When powered up, the machine could fly with thunderous power, darting towards the Earth and immediately becoming a star in the sky, where it passes like a comet.
The peculiar apparatus described by the Hindu chroniclers bears remarkable similarities to ionic engines still in the experimental stages.
It is intriguing how the ancient Hindu chroniclers could have accurately described the workings of these futuristic engines and imagined the phenomena that occur during the flight of such a spacecraft, including the deafening noise produced when a spacecraft breaks the sound barrier and the comet-like appearance of a spacecraft when entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
The proponents of the ancient aliens theory offer a simple explanation for all these: ancient extraterrestrial beings visited Earth in ancient times, and the evidence is in the texts.
The ancient Greek and Roman cultures have left behind an impressive legacy of art, literature, philosophy, science, and history.
Among their works are descriptions of peculiar aerial phenomena such as glowing disks, “wheels of fire,” and loud metallic ships.
While modern meteorologists or astronomers cannot explain these accounts, adherents of the ancient astronaut theory believe they may be attributed to ancient extraterrestrial visitations.
Between 250-50 BC, ancient Greeks and Romans documented roughly twenty bizarre phenomena in the sky. All remained unexplained by modern science.
These events were recorded in several ancient texts, including works by renowned authors such as Titus Livius, Dio Cassius, Julius Obsequens, and Pliny the Elder.
For instance, Pliny the Elder wrote in his Natural History (Book II, Chapter 34) that “under the consulship of Valerius and Marius, a brilliant shield of fire traversed the sky at sunset, proceeding from east to west and throwing off sparks.”
Similarly, Cicero noted in De Divinatione (Book I) that unusual phenomena such as “flames in the sky,” “strange noises,” and “globes of a strange nature” were reported to the Senate for consultation.
These descriptions closely resemble reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the present century.
While the lack of scientific explanation for these ancient accounts remains a mystery, some suggest that these sightings may have been extraterrestrial.
Could these historical references to aerial anomalies be another piece of evidence pointing toward ancient alien visitations?
Ancient texts from the Middle East play a crucial role in understanding human history.
The Old Testament, written between the 9th and 5th centuries BC, and the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered at Qumran have provided invaluable insight into the past.
Estimated to be around 4,000 years old, the Dead Sea Scrolls comprise texts attributed to the prophets Moses, Abraham, Enoch, Lamech, and others. These manuscripts are exceptional because they have not been modified or censored over time by ecclesiastical authorities.
Many texts discovered at Qumran have striking similarities to modern-day concepts, yet their meanings perplex archaeologists.
One controversial fragment suggests that beings came from the sky and others were taken from the earth and lifted into the sky, challenging the belief that the sky was a forbidden place ruled by supernatural powers.
The Lamech Scroll, containing a dramatic account of the Flood, reveals an unusual detail about Noah, Lamech’s son, who differed from other men and resembled the “Sons of Heaven.”
Recent studies on the scrolls using cutting-edge technology have revealed new information about their origins and the processes used to produce them.
The scrolls have undergone extensive research, with new discoveries continually shedding light on their enigmatic content.
The Book of Enoch remains a highly contentious text that deals with the concept of ancient aliens interacting with human civilization throughout history.
This ancient Jewish apocalyptic text is attributed to Enoch, a great-grandfather of Noah. The book is not regarded as scripture by Jews or Christians, but it is considered canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church.
According to legend, Enoch, a revered figure who ascended to the sky on a “chariot of fire” before the flood, prophesizes to Lameh’s family (through Methuselah, his father) about the impending catastrophe that will occur just one generation later.
Enoch’s prophecy includes a fascinating detail: the person who will repopulate the world after the disaster is none other than “his grandson Noah.”
The Apocalypse of Moses similarly records an intriguing event: one morning, Eve witnesses a luminous ship in the sky drawn by four vultures “shining in the sun.” Adam later observes the same ship and notices smoke emanating from its wheels.
The Book of Enoch, an apocryphal text, narrates the arrival of 220 “sky angels” on Earth who differ from the asexual, immaterial beings described in the Bible.
These “ancient aliens” imparted knowledge to humans in the fields of agriculture, metallurgy, and astronomy, married women from Earth, and their leader, Semyaza, became the head of all the tribes in the region.
Furthermore, an apocryphal text ascribed to Abraham describes a being he saw with a chariot behind it, featuring wheels of fire, each covered with eyes and a throne surrounded by flames.
A group of American researchers asserts that the peculiar vehicle resembles a lunar jeep (excluding the flames), and the “throne surrounded by flames” represents a shining bodywork.
Although apocryphal texts did not fit the prescribed canonical line and thus were not included in the Bible, they contain many intriguing details.
For example, in Isaiah’s Vision, the first reference to the effects of time relativity is discovered.
Elevated to the sky by an “angel,” Isaiah realizes that he is flying “faster than thought,” and after returning to Earth, he wonders, “Why so soon? I have only been here two hours with you!” But the angel responds, “You did not stay two hours, but 32 years.”
Despite the many transformations and revisions that the Old Testament has undergone over time, it still contains intriguing passages that allude to the presence of ancient aliens.
One of the most striking examples is the following excerpt from the Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 1, verses 1-28:
In the thirtieth year, on the fifth day of the fourth month, I witnessed divine apparitions while I was at the River Chebar. A great wind, or a great and strong fire, glowing with brilliance, came from the north, and in the center of it, there was a point of light resembling electrum, an alloy metal that burned with a bright flame, which Plato attributed to the Atlanteans, shining brightly.
Amid it, I saw the likenesses of four beings with a human aspect, each with four faces and four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like gleaming brass. Their wings were connected, and they did not turn when they moved, but each went straight ahead.
The beings’ faces resembled burning coals, and lightning bolts flashed between them. Under the beings’ bodies, there was something resembling wheels in the air, appearing like beryl, and all four wheels had the same likeness, like a wheel within a wheel. The beings could move in any of the four directions, and the wheels did not turn when they moved.
The rims of the wheels were awe-inspiring and full of eyes all around. When the beings moved, the wheels moved with them, and when the beings rose from the ground, the wheels rose as well.
Above the beings’ heads was a firmament that shone like crystal, and under the firmament, their wings were spread out, touching one another, and each had two wings that covered their bodies.
When they moved, I heard the sound of their wings, like the roar of rushing waters, like the voice of the Almighty, like the noise of a multitude, and when they stood still, they lowered their wings.
Above the firmament that was over their heads, there was something resembling a sapphire stone, looking like a throne, and on the throne, there was a figure that looked like a man, wearing a garment that shone like gold, like brass, red as fire, and like a rainbow in the clouds after a rain shower.
Contemporary scholars have associated the object described in this passage with a combination of the “Eagle,” the lunar module used in the APOLLO 11 mission, and the lunar rover employed by the APOLLO 17 mission.
According to them, the level of detail and complexity in the object’s description suggests that it cannot be explained by natural phenomena or mere mystical hallucinations.
Here are fragments of the Book of Genesis, the first book of Moses (chapters I-IV):
Let us make man in our image, after our likeness […] And the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
At this time, there were giants on Earth, especially when the “sons of God” began taking wives from among the daughters of men, and they began begetting sons, the renowned heroes of old.
However, according to the Church, “the one true God” had only one illegitimate son – Jesus Christ.
So, where do these “sons of God” come from? Moreover, why are they taking wives from Earth and giving birth to demigods? And why is the Almighty speaking in the plural: “[…] after our likeness”?
The ancient aliens theory is still controversial but answers some of antiquity’s greatest mysteries.
As the evidence accumulates, more and more researchers are gaining the courage to declare themselves supporters of the ancient astronaut theory.
