Were we Created by Extraterrestrials?
Alien Evolution & Human Origins

Is it possible that the entire human race
was actually created by extraterrestrials? Many people tend to have a hard time believing with this theory since it tends to conflict with most religious views but the possibility is there.

There are many ancient sites located on earth which are not completely understood. How did they get there? Who built them? For what reasons do these ancient sites exist?

Just because something seems so far fetched it doesn't mean that it is wrong.

Some argue that scientists still haven't found the missing link, the evidence that proves we have evolved. There are many weird and strange events that have happened on our planet. Not long ago the earth was considered to be flat and this was normal, today we know better.

According to ancient alien theorists, extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history. But how did this concept develop, and is there any evidence to support it?

Ancient alien theory grew out of the centuries-old idea that life exists on other planets, and that humans and extraterrestrials have crossed paths before.

The theme of human-alien interaction was thrust into the spotlight in the 1960s, driven by a wave of UFO sightings and popular films like 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The space program played no small part in this as well: If mankind could travel to other planets, why couldn't extraterrestrials visit Earth?

In 1968, the Swiss author Erich von Däniken published Chariots of the Gods?, which became an immediate bestseller.

In it, he put forth his hypothesis that, thousands of years ago, space travelers from other planets visited Earth, where they taught humans about technology and influenced ancient religions.

He is regarded by many as the father of ancient alien theory, also known as the ancient astronaut theory.

Most ancient alien theorists, including von Däniken, point to two types of evidence to support their ideas. The first is ancient religious texts in which humans witness and interact with gods or other heavenly beings who descend from the sky—sometimes in vehicles resembling spaceships—and possess spectacular powers.

The second is physical specimens such as artwork depicting alien-like figures and ancient architectural marvels like Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt.

If aliens visited Earth in the past, could they make an appearance in the future?

For ancient alien theorists, the answer is a resounding yes. They believe that, by sharing their views with the world, they can help prepare future generations for the inevitable encounter that awaits them.

According to certain authors, intelligent extraterrestrial beings called ancient astronauts or ancient aliens have visited Earth, and this contact is connected with the origins or development of human cultures, technologies, and religions.

A common variant of the idea include proposals that deities from most – if not all – religions are actually extraterrestrials, and their technologies were taken as evidence of their divine status.

These proposals have been popularized, particularly in the latter half of the 20th century, by writers Erich von Däniken, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert K. G. Temple, and David Icke.

Ancient astronauts have been widely used as a plot device in science fiction, but the idea that ancient astronauts actually existed is not taken seriously by academics, and has received little or no credulous attention in peer reviewed studies.

Proponents in ancient astronaut often maintain that humans are either descendants or creations of beings who landed on Earth thousands of years ago.

An associated idea is that much of human knowledge, religion, and culture came from extraterrestrial visitors in ancient times, in that ancient astronauts acted as a “mother culture”.

Other proposals include the idea that civilization may have evolved on Earth twice, and that the visitation of ancient astronauts may reflect the return of descendants of ancient humans whose population was separated from earthbound humans.

These ideas are generally discounted if not ridiculed by the academic and skeptical communities.

Proponents argue that the evidence for ancient astronauts comes from supposed gaps in historical and archaeological records, and they also maintain that absent or incomplete explanations of historical or archaeological data point to the existence of ancient astronauts. 

The evidence is said to include archaeological artifacts that they argue are anachronistic or beyond the presumed technical capabilities of the historical cultures with which they are associated (sometimes referred to as "Out-of-place artifacts"); and artwork and legends which are interpreted as depicting extraterrestrial contact or technologies.

Mainstream academics, when they comment at all on such proposals, have responded that gaps in contemporary knowledge of the past need not demonstrate that such speculative ancient astronaut ideas are a necessary, or even plausible, conclusion to draw.

Academic researchers in related disciplines generally maintain that there is no evidence to support the proposals of ancient astronauts or paleocontact.

It is believed by some that our species was created from another species, a species more advanced than the human race. Our gods were actually the species that created us. We believed them to be gods because they had powers and abilities that no human could possess.

These species built huge structures such as the Giza pyramids of Egypt, Machu Picchu in Peru, Baalbek in Lebanon, and the Moai of Easter Island. They could fly in the air with their great air ships.

Today, all that is left for us to remember them is these unknown structures around Earth, drawings and paintings of weird objects in the sky. They have been forgotten.

Many scientists dismiss this and believe there is no evidence that another species created us, but some people argue this is not true.
