Archaeologists working in southwest wales have discovered an ancient prehistoric star map (scroll down at link). I’m sure this will leave the ancient astronaut community breathless with more tales of ancient alien technology transfer. For those of us who think more clearly, it’s actually a good teaching point.
How do I know this wasn’t alien knowledge? Simple. Here’s the part of the article that makes it clear:
Following the complete exposure of the capstone through excavation, it is now considered by several astronomers that the distribution of the cupmarks may represent a section of the night sky that includes the star constellations of Cassiopeia, Orion, Sirius and of course the North Star.
The point of clarity is the constellations. This standing stone is recording naked eye astronomy. And that’s basically always the case with artifacts used by ancient astronaut theorists with respect to “advanced ET knowledge” presumably given to humans in prehistoric or ancient times. They had eyes and used them. Instead of reality TV, they were glued to the heavens. It’s impressive, but it isn’t mysterious.
Amen Brother, you are preaching to the choir…I get so tired of the “Astronuts” and their babbling about the superior alien technology. They seem to sell mankind short, our ancestors were, in many ways, more intelligent the we are today with our dependency on computers etc and our seeming inability to think for ourselves. – Mac
You’re right Mako, but is was our ancestors themselves who have given the ancient astronaut theorists much of their ‘ammunition’. Our ancient ancestors often did not take credit for their own abilities. One of the most sophisticated of all ancient cultures, the Chinese, stated the Celestial ‘Dragons’ taught them many of their technologies, and we have similar ancient stories all over the world. Even in lthe Bible, we have a carnivorous, gold-hoarding, winged, fire breathing sky creature who gave the Israelites their laws.
there are no “carnivorous, gold-hoarding, winged, fire breathing sky creatures” in the Bible whom Israelites give credit for their laws. So … you take a reference to fire on Sinai to be a dragon? That ought to win some sort of non-sequitur award.
