Welcome to the official website of The Ancient Astronauts. We currently offer the largest assortment of DVDs, Books, E-books, and Audio Books that focus on the existence of aliens in our universe and the possibility that they have visited our planet countless times in the past. According to paleocontact hypotheses, intelligent extraterrestrials, known as alien astronauts, visited our Earth and made contact with the Earth’s ancient civilizations. The proponents of this belief contend that they had a tremendous influence on the development of human cultures, religions, and technology.
Our website answers a variety of different questions regarding ancient astronaut theory and the possibility that these beings did visit our Earth in ancient times. Some of the more common questions that are addressed include:
- *Are there really UFO’s and aliens?
- *What is ancient astronaut theory?
- *What is Planet X Theory?
- *Who are the ancient aliens theorists?
The proponents of ancient astronaut hypotheses contend that the human race is the creation of or the descendants of aliens who visited our planet in ancient times. Some proponents also contend that a significant portion of human culture, knowledge, and religion came from these ancient astronauts.
Popularization Of The Belief In Alien Beings
One of the more popular variations of paleocontact hypothesis is that these “visitors” were different religious deities whose ancient technologies were misunderstood by earlier civilizations. According to this hypothesis, their technologies were evidence of their status as religious deities and gods. It was during the second half of the 1900’s that these different notions were popularized in the writings of two renowned authors – Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin.
Who Are The Ancient Aliens Theorists?
Two of the most noteworthy individuals and ancient aliens theorists were Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin. Von Däniken was a Swiss author who is widely known for his claims about the existence of extraterrestrials and how they influenced human civilization and culture. His best known work was a book entitled “Chariots of the Gods?” which was published in 1968 and was an immediate Top 10 Best Seller. He is oftentimes regarded as the key figure and proponent of the ancient astronauts and paleocontact hypotheses.
Zecharia Sitchin was an Azerbaijan SSR-born author who would do his best work after immigrating to the US. He is most commonly known for his series “The Earth Chronicles” which begins with his work entitled “The 12th Planet.” Sitchin’s popularity stemmed from his unique interpretation of numerous ancient Middle Eastern and Sumerian artifacts, megalithic sites, and texts. Much of this was discussed in his writings regarding a 12th planet called “Nibiru” and which he claimed was the home to the ancient Mesopotamian gods.
What Is Ancient Astronaut Theory?
Many individuals today believe in the existence of extraterrestrials dating back from ancient times to the present day. Ancient Astronaut Theory contends that the human race was created by aliens and that they greatly influenced the different cultures and religions of the world as well as our technologies. Additionally, a great deal of human knowledge today is attributed to these extraterrestrials. As a result, they are oftentimes referred to as the “mother culture” of modern day humanity.
A further contention of the theory is that many of the ancient structures found around the world were built by these alien astronauts or spaceman during their many visits to our planet, including the Moai stone heads found on Easter Island and the pyramids of Egypt. It is also speculated that they were assisted by humans in the building of these ancient structures. Finally, Ancient Astronaut Theory claims that the evidence of their existence stems from the many gaps in archaeological and historical records. It is the absence or incompleteness of this data that points to the existence of these beings.
Are There Really UFO’s And Aliens?
The age old question that so many ancient alien theorists and other individuals have been trying to answer is “are there really UFO’s and aliens?” Throughout documented history, humans have been intrigued by the possible existence of aliens and their spacecraft or unidentified flying objects (a.k.a. UFO’s). The many cave drawings and etchings that have been discovered in recent decades depict human shapes with strangely shaped heads and eyes as well as the spaceships they traveled in.
Ironically, documented records of alien sightings all have one thing in common – the way in which witnesses describe these extraterrestrial beings. Additionally, hundreds if not thousands of individuals have claimed that they have witnessed UFO’s flying across the sky or hovering above them. Some even claim that they have been abducted by aliens and examined or studied before they were released and sent back to Earth. Naturally, the academic and scientific communities contend that these individuals are merely trying to create a stir about the issue so they can see their names and photos in the newspapers.
What Is Planet X Theory?
Planet X Theory attempts to answer and explain the existence of a giant, yet-to-be-named planet in our solar system. According to this theory, there is a 10th planet that exists beyond the orbit of Pluto which lost its planetary status in 2006 after years of debate regarding whether or not it was the 9th planet of our solar system. Planet X Theory also contends that a single orbit takes over 3,600 years to complete. Additionally, it was supposed to orbit close enough to the Earth and cause dire consequences in the process.
As a result, a sizeable group of individuals contended that the Earth would be destroyed on December 21st, 2012. The proponents of Planet X Theory contend that the accumulated data regarding earthquakes and the weather proves the influence that this celestial body has on the Earth. In addition to this, many proponents claim that the Federal Government has forced a number of observatories to shut down their operations in order to keep the existence of Planet X a secret and avoid a worldwide panic.
