Wikipedia says, “The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The high, arid plateau stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana about 400 km south of Lima. Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs, scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 CE. The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, llamas, and lizards.

The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the ubiquitous reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish ground beneath. Hundreds are simple lines or geometric shapes; more than seventy are designs of animal, bird, fish or human figures. The largest figures are over 200 metres (660 ft) across. Scholars differ in interpreting the purpose of the designs, but they generally ascribe religious significance to them.”

The mainstream scientific community have a consensus about a few points on Nazca:

  1. The site is ancient
  2. Its located at an arid highland
  3. The designs are complex and vast
  4. The landscape stretches over 50 Miles
  5. A huge effort has been put to create the lines at Nazca
  6. Some of them also make geometric sense

However, the mainstream scholarship has not been able to convincingly answer quite a few questions about the Nazca Lines as well. Who created this? Why was it created? How did ancient man manage the magnitude of the drawings? Because all of the Nazca figurines start taking form when looked at, from a height. So without an aerial form of supervision, its virtually impossible to create something of that magnitude. Also what purpose did these lines serve when they were made? The answers provided by mainstream scholarship is somewhat a sanitized view based upon speculations. The Nazca lines could have had a religious significance, however a different purpose, that they could have served, cannot be completely ruled out.

If the Alien GODS from outer space did visit our planet in antiquity, how would our ancestors have communicated with them? And wouldn’t there be physical evidences of the time they spent here? Perhaps a few such evidences could be located in the Nazca Desert of Peru. There over a 50 kilometer stretch, countless geometric lines and figures decorate the landscape. When you take an Arial view of the landscape you see a few lines. And these lines do look like ‘air strips’, they start and end very systematically and stretch over very long distances ending into a so called ‘Air Strip’. The longest of them is over 23 kilometer long, and contains not a single curve – that’s unbelievable.

And among these lines you find drawing of various animals such as spiders, monkeys, fishes, hummingbird and apes and so on. The magnitudes of these drawings are so enormous that they do not make any sense on the ground and are only visible from the air. There are conflicting views and theories about these lines varying from irrigation ditches, astronomical calendars or pathways used for religious purposes.

Someone has created these, thousands of years ago, with precision that we cannot match even today. However we are still not clear how, why and for whom these lines were made. The most surprising feature of the Nazca desert according to me is that fact that the table land over which the ‘Air Strip’ like likes are created, seem to be artificially flattened. You look at the hills around you, they have their summits, but here, the summit is missing, it’s gone. And there is no trace of the rubble; it’s not there in the valley below or anywhere in the vicinity. Now that demands an explanation. Furthermore, we are yet not clear about why man would invest so much of time and energy into creating something of this magnitude and precision.

Another intriguing question is, why Nazca? It has been geologically proven that Nazca is one place on earth that is abundant in minerals and ores that constitute our planet. Once there, you could make a precise assessment of what this planet could consist of.

However the mainstream archeologists as always, have vastly differed from this alternative view, and have maintained that Nazca is a work of artistic self expression of man, and that the “artworks” have nothing to do with someone capable of flight. However the artistic self expression hypothesis doesn’t hold much ground, because standing on the surface of earth these figures make no sense. They are so vast, that it could have only been “properly visible” and appreciated by someone from a great height. Since there are no higher mountain peaks in the vicinity, the “great height” could only have been achieved through flight. And who could be flying at those times, other than Extraterrestrials? I hope someday, mainstream archeology would accept this– and not the sterilized view of the world as they continue to provide today.
