There are many accounts of supernatural human beings throughout ancient history. Might these “superheroes” actually be otherworldly beings that visited Earth? Could these beings have inspired the modern superhero? Marvel superhero hero Thor is derived straight from the legends of ancient Norse mythology, but where did ancient Scandinavians find the inspiration for Thor and other Norse gods? Could the answer lie with Ancient Aliens? Ancient Aliens is an American television series on the History channel. The program presents hypotheses of ancient astronauts and proposes that historical texts, archaeology and legends contain evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact.
Stories of strange encounters accompany many of history’s major events. Is it merely coincidence? Or might it be evidence of extraterrestrial intervention? In ancient myths from cultures around the globe, gods are often portrayed intervening in human affairs. The Sumerian gods are said to have created mankind; the Hebrews believe God gave Moses man’s first laws, the Ten Commandments, and the angel Gabriel reportedly shared divine wisdom with the prophet Muhammad. But is it possible that these supernatural visitations were not actually the work of the gods–but rather a race of extraterrestrials using advanced technology to create and shape our civilization? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe aliens may have helped guide mankind in the remote past–and that evidence for this stunning conclusion can be found sprinkled throughout human history.
It has been called the key to the universe and possibly the most important scientific breakthrough of all time. Could the so-called “God Particle” reveal the truth about our origins? And might clues to its significance have been left here on Earth thousands of years ago by extraterrestrial beings? The age-old question, “where did we come from?” remains a mystery, but in 2012, scientists at CERN laboratory announced the discovery of the “God Particle”–the subatomic particle that is believed to give mass to matter–and offers a closer understanding of just how the universe began. The discovery seemingly pitted science against religion. But could science and religion actually be kindred spirits? Many ancient religions and mythologies describe the origins of the universe in ways very similar to today’s scientific explanations and proclaim that this information was given to them by otherworldy beings.
