Mohenjo Daro (lit. Mound of the Dead, Sindhi: موئن جو دڙو, pronounced), situated in the province of Sindh, Pakistan, was one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. Mohenjo Daro was built around 2600 BC and and continued to exist till about 1800 BC. The ruins of the city were discovered in 1922 by Rakhaldas Bandyopadhyay, an officer of the Archaeological Survey of India. He was led to the mound by a Buddhist monk, who believed it to be a stupa. In the 1930s, massive excavations were conducted under the leadership of John Marshall, K. N. Dikshit, Ernest Mackay, and others.

When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of what once happened to be a sprawling metropolis.  And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death. These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. An ancient, heavily populated city in Pakistan seemed to have been instantly destroyed 2,000 years before Christ by an incredible explosion that could only been caused by an atomic bomb.

At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal. Other cities have been found in northern India that show indications of explosions of great magnitude. One such city, found between the Ganges and the mountains of Rajmahal, seems to have been subjected to intense heat. Huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city are fused together, literally vitrified! And since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at Mohenjo-Daro or at the other cities, the intense heat to melt clay vessels can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon. The cities were wiped out entirely.

The David Davenport Angle to Mohenjo Daro Extinction [Quotes adapted directly from his works]

An ancient, heavily populated city in Pakistan was instantly destroyed 2,000 years before Christ by an incredible explosion that could only been caused by an atomic bomb. That’s the mind bogging conclusion of a British researcher, David Davenport, who spent 12 years studying ancient Hindu scripts and evidence at the site where the great city – Mohenjo Daro once stood. What was found at the site of Mohenjo Daro corresponds exactly to Nagasaki, declared Davenport, who published his startling findings in an amazing book, “Atomic Destruction in 2000 B.C.”, Milan, Italy, 1979.

There was an epicenter about 50 yards wide where everything was crystallized, fused or melted, he said. Sixty yards from the center the bricks are melted on one side indicating a blast. the horrible, mysterious event of 4,000 years ago that leveled Mohenjo Daro was recorded in an old Hindu manuscript called the Mahabharata, “White hot smoke that was a thousand times brighter than the sun rose in infinite brilliance and reduced the city to ashes, the account reads. Water boiled…horses and war chariots were burned by the thousands.. . the corpses of the fallen were mutilated by the terrible heat so that they no longer looked like human beings…”. The description concludes, “it was a terrible sight to see … never before have we seen such a ghastly weapon”.

Based on his study of many ancient manuscripts, Davenport believes that the end of Mohenjo Daro was tied to a state of war between the Aryans and the Dravidian. Aryans controlled regions where space aliens were mining minerals and exploiting other natural resources, he believes. Because it was a Dravidian city, the aliens had agreed to destroy Mohenjo Daro on behalf of the Aryans. The aliens needed the friendship of the Aryan kings so that they could continue their prospecting and research, explained Davenport. The texts tell us that 30,000 inhabitants of the city were given seven days to get out – a clear warning that everything was about to be destroyed. Obviously, some people didn’t heed the warning, because 44 human skeletons were found there in 1927, just a few years after the city was discovered.

All the skeletons were flattened to the ground. For example, a father, mother and child were found flattened in the street, face down and still holding hands. Interestingly, the ancient texts refer repeatedly to the Vimanas, or the flying cars, which fly under their own power, he added. Davenport’s intriguing theory has met with intense interest in the scientific community. Nationally known expert William Sturm said, “the melting of bricks at Mohenjo Daro could not have been caused by a normal fire”. Added professor Antonio Castellani, a space engineer in Rome, “it’s possible that what happened at Mohenjo Daro was not a natural phenomenon”.

David Davenport, who spent 12 years studying ancient Hindu scripts and evidence at the ancient site of Mohenjo-Daro, declared in 1996 that the city was instantly destroyed around 2,000 BC. The city ruins reveal the explosion’s epicenter which measures 50 yards wide. At that location everything was crystallized, fused or melted. Sixty yards from the center the bricks were melted on one side indicating a blast… the horrible mysterious event of 4000 years ago was recorded in the Mahabharata.

How did man 2000 tears before Christ have the the knowledge of not only producing such high degree of heat, but also harness the power of such high temperatures? If Mohanjo Daro was destroyed by a nuclear catastrophe, who designed and manufactured them? If not then what was used to produce such heat that vitrified rock and bricks? What could be attributed to the high degree of  radioactive traces in the skeletons? How did all of them die, in one instant? Its up to us whether we need answers to these questions or continue to live in a sanitized view of the world, as provided to us by mainstream scholarship.

Well, before I go into this, let me tell you two facts about this post. One, its not ‘entirely’ my research, I was looking through the internet for Vile Vortices and accidentally happened to stumble upon an article talking of a 2 Billion year old nuclear reactor.  The second fact is, when I started reading the original article, I wasn’t completely convinced, though I completely believe the fact that history of human civilization goes way back into predated history. But a nuclear reactor 2 billion years old? I couldn’t comprehend it. However I continued to read. As the article unfolded, facts seemed to fit in, and in course of my research I observed that NASA too has a view about this reactor, that is consistent to the essence of the original article. So here we are, in Gabon Republic of Africa – at the worlds oldest reminiscences of what looks like a nuclear reactor for distant antiquity.

The remnants of nuclear reactors nearly two billion years old were found in the 1970s in Africa. This is what NASA has to observe, “The remnants of nuclear reactors nearly two billion years old were found in the 1970s in Africa. These reactors are thought to have occurred naturally. No natural reactors exist today, as the relative density of fissile uranium has now decayed below that needed for a sustainable reaction. Pictured above is Fossil Reactor 15, located in Oklo, Gabon. Uranium oxide remains are visible as the yellowish rock. Oklo by-products are being used today to probe the stability of the fundamental constants over cosmological time and distance scales and to develop more effective means for disposing of human-manufactured nuclear waste”. This could be located at ::

In 1972, a French company imported some uranium ore from Oklo in the Gabon Republic in Africa. Surprisingly the uranium concentration in the ore was as low as spent uranium fuel from a nuclear reactor. The finding led scientists to believe that the uranium had already been used for energy production. This discovery shocked the world and attracted scientists from many countries to go to Oklo for further investigation. The results showed that the uranium mine was an ancient nuclear reactor. The ancient reactor consisted of five hundred tons of utilized uranium ore in six different areas. Its output power was estimated to be approximately one hundred kilowatts. The reactor was perfectly preserved and its layout was very rational. It is estimated that the reactor had been in operation for around 500,000 years. Furthermore, nuclear wastes produced in this reactor had not spread all over the surrounding areas. Instead, they were confined within the separate sections.

The research is on for further facts. But at this moment we can only ask, who made this? Why was it used? Did we have intelligent beings 2 billion years ago, who could not only generate, but also harness the powers of a nuclear reaction. If yes then it ushers us into a plethora of unanswered question, we perhaps have absolutely no idea about. Truth seeking has never been so astonishing for me, this finding has come as a jolt.

Some places across the globe, for years, have baffled the scientific community and historians alike. These places are mysterious and possess characteristics that have not been explained scientifically, even after decades or perhaps centuries of study and research that have gone into them. Radio frequency failure, compass malfunction, aircraft going off the radar and other unexplained malfunctions of navigational and electronic equipment are some of the bizarre events witnessed at these places over the years. Names such as Zona Di Silencio or the Zone of Silence, in Northern Mexico, The Bermuda Triangle, The Devils Triangle – off the Japanese coast, The Carnac Stones in France, The Gate of the Gods are predominant names in this enlistment. Here we try to find a few answers to some of these perplexities that have intrigued mankind over the years.

Perhaps the most famous or rather infamous of all the mysterious places is the Bermuda Triangle. For centuries this stretch of ocean covering more than 500,000 sq miles located between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda have tested the intelligences of scientists, experienced sailors and military investigators alike. Philip Coppens observes, “we witness planes disappearing, weird lights being seen and a whole bunch of other weirdness in this tight corner of the Atlantic. Crews of ships have just disappeared without any sign of struggle and absolutely no trace of them have been found over the years”. What caused the ships to disappear, why have the aeronautical and navigational equipment stopped working or changed course by itself? Historical navigational records show, the anomalies of Bermuda Triangle is much older than most people realize. In fact it all started with Christopher Columbus’ navigational log. He being such a respected sailor and an esoteric navigator, his logs about the journey to the new world is considered remarkably accurate. As he approached the area called the Bermuda Triangle, he witnessed strange phenomena such as compass malfunctions, the following night he witnessed a strange ball of fire hit the ocean. Also he witnessed weather abnormalities and a series of other events that cannot be explained as logically foreseen. So clearly, the events at Bermuda Triangle is not an urban myth that started in the threshold of 20th century, its as old as there are accounts of people going into that area.

About 450 years after Columbus on December 5, 1945 the USAF faced the Bermuda Triangle’s most perplexing mystery. At 14:00 HRS, 5 torpedo bombers flew from an airbase at Fort Lauderdale, Florida on a routine training exercise. Not long into the 2 hour long mission, all 5 planes were suddenly gone. The Mystery was compounded when USAF sent a rescue mission and it too disappeared. 6 planes, all flown by skilled pilots, had flown into oblivion. This incident sent shock waves across the United States Air Force and other defense establishments, because this was modern era, we had equipments to trace them, we had radio, we had the RADAR and yet 6 planes had vanished without trace. According to Philip Coppens, “as if all of these aircraft have been snapped out of our reality, into ‘something else’ and of course what that something else is, that’s the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle”.

Over the years only a few have lived to tell us what anomalies occur at the Bermuda Triangle. However, American pilot Bruce Gernon is an exception. In 1970, Gernon, his father and a business associate were flying from the Bahamas to Florida, when Gernon reported seeing a strange cloud directly in front of their plane. Then as they approached, Gernon reported seeing the cloud form a doughnut shaped hole or a vortex. “The hole was initially large but gradually narrowed down, and as I entered the ‘tunnel’, a strange thing happened. It was like looking down into a rifle barrel. It started swirling slowly counter clockwise and I witnessed some intense electricity and there were flashes going on and off and all I could see was a grayish/ yellowish fog, I call it electronic fog. I noticed that my instruments were malfunctioning and at the same time I witnessed this unbelievable sensation”. Gernon says when he finally exited the tunnel he radioed the Miami ATC, but they could not see his plane on their Radar screen. “And then about three minutes later the radio operator came online and he said he located me over Miami, and I couldn’t believe it because I had been flying only for over 33 minutes, whereas the distance should have been about an hour and 33 minutes”. Could such a discrepancy in time and distance happen and could ETs be using such gateways to travel to earth?

Herein comes the scientific angle. According to Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, it is possible. Einstein’s theory of being able to bend space using a gravitational pull, could be applied by the Alien crafts, by using these places to acquire and harness those extra amounts of energy, warp the distances and thus attain a burst of speed in a direction of where they want to go. According to another thought process, “whenever there is an energy emission from a higher dimension or a higher plane, the energy emission would be in form of Vortices, so Vortices and Gateways are the same thing”. Since wormholes are theoretically located all across the universe, could similar gateways be used for traveling across the universe?

Also could these gateways exist in smaller areas on Earth, and strange electromagnetic levels be the key to discovering them? In most of such reports we find a strange consistency involving strange electromagnetic phenomenon in form of strange vapor or cloud. According to David Childress, “its quite possible that Bermuda Triangle is one such inter-dimensional doorway that’s used by these Aliens”. With reports of UFOs appearing and ships and portals disappearing, some believe that Bermuda Triangle is a portal that works in both directions. So if, as Ancient Alien theorists believe, that this portal has been used by ETs to visit earth since antiquity, might we one day use the same portal to visit them? Also if there is a portal in the open waters of Bermuda, might there be more such portals on Land?

A little over 400 miles south of El Paso Texas, in northern Mexico, stretches a remote and rugged section of high desert. This area near the town of Ceballos is referred to by the locals as Zona Del Silencio or the Zone of Silence. Its at the epicenter of some of the strangest phenomena ever recorded on earth. Nothing seems to work in this area, the cellphone drops out of range, the radio doesn’t catch any signal, the compass just keeps spinning, its completely bizarre. There are strange rocks everywhere, we even witness strange mutated animals in the area. The Zone of Silence was first identified by Francisco Sarabia, a Mexican pilot who claimed that his radio mysteriously failed to function while flying over the area. Its located between the same parallel as the Bermuda Triangle i.e. between 26°N and 28°N of equator and as a result goes and connects to the Egyptian Pyramids. On July 11, 1970 when the USAF lost an Athena Missile that was launched from its facility at Green River, Utah. It was programed to land  700 miles away at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. But due to some unexplained reason, the missile flew several hundred miles past its range to the Zone of Silence. According to a NASA Spokesperson, the missile mysteriously got pulled into the Zone of Silence. But this is not the only thing that got ‘pulled’ into this area. The Ancient Alien Theorists believe that an unusually large number of meteorites have crashed into the area. According to Logan Hawkes – the author of The Mexico less Traveled, “there is a very strong magnetic signature to this place and this has been proven scientifically, however we need more research to establish, whether this magnetism is strong enough to pull space debris like meteorites. And I don’t think such research is happening right now“.

Starting 3000 years ago,  the Anasazi Indians inhabited the area to the North of Zona Del Silencio, today’s American Southwest. The word Anasazi means Ancient Ones and they paid great attention to the stars. Scientists have established that at about 1054 AD, a supernova explosion was visible from earth. Many believe that that first ever drawing of this event was found inside an Anasazi cave dwelling.  South of the Zone of Silence, established cultures like the Maya, seem to have exact knowledge of such celestial events. Its often debated that Anasazi and the Mesoamerican cultures often used the Zone of Silence as their meeting place. But what other connections exist between these cultures and are they of celestial origin? Both the Anasazi and the Mesoamericans were great believers in Sky People – of beings who came from the sky. And the description of these heavenly people is consistent in their reports, as tall, pale skinned, white haired beings, and that is not indigenous to the region, but does match the South American descriptions of their Gods. According to the local legends, these ancient Gods made themselves known to the ancient people, is possible that these heavenly people are still letting them known today? We have established reports of UFO sightings in the region and its considerably higher than any other area in the vicinity. One of the most prominent ones came from the town of Ceballos one summer afternoon, when hundreds of people reported an object hovering over the desert on the outskirts of the town. It was described to be about 100 mt wide and had multicolored lights flashing, it wasn’t doing anything, but was just hovering over the desert. After a while it just ‘took off’ and headed towards the Zone of Silence. According to the Ancient Alien Theorists, there is a connection between the magnetic signature of this place, the alien Gods and the present day UFO sightings, however are there more such places across the world that could provide us more direct evidences of such occurrences in the past?

Located about 800 miles South East of Lima, Peru on the shores of Lake Titicaca is a sight that have mystified visitors from all around the world. Shamans still come and offer prayers at a rock wall on this high plateau as they have done for generations. This is called Puerta del Hijo Marka or the Gate of the Gods. Its a doorway carved into solid rock. According to David Childress, ” it really appears appears to be a Gateway, but it doesn’t really go anywhere”. Its literally in the middle of nowhere, at 14,000 ft, yet this is a perfect rectangle carved out of a solid block of rock and right at the bottom its got another indent in it, that looks like a door. The Peruvians refer to it as the Gate of the Gods. But the baffling question is, why would someone make a doorway, in the middle of nowhere at 14000 ft and one that doesn’t go anywhere? There has to be a way to get across this. According to Inca legend, the first priest Amaro Muro is said to have traveled through this doorway, using a special object to activate it turning the solid rock into what is known as the Star Gate. This Star Gate was activated by help of a golden disc and this golden disc fell from the sky. He held the golden disc into the gateway in a recessed area, and the gateway activated and he passed though it, never to be seen again. Archeologists have noticed a depression at the center of the doorway, and it is believed it was perhaps this depression, where the golden disc was placed. This disc was made of gold and other precious metals, and perhaps was a technological device which had the ability to open up inter-dimensional gateways. Furthermore, according to the local legends, these priests were called space brothers and came from other world.  May they have come to earth through this Gateway? However, could a device to activate this door actually exist? And if so, where would the doorway lead? The Gate of the Gods could well be one end of a wormhole, a type of portal used to connect to another part of the universe or another dimension. Wormholes are an accepted element of Theoretical and Particle Physics. But have they actually existed on some of worlds most mysterious places. The aliens are perhaps coming to earth in inter dimensional crafts that allow then to travel through hyper space. And they can travel between their dimension and ours in literally no time. But to do that they have to travel through these wormholes and enter planet earth through a portal. What if one end of the portal does really exist at Puerta del Hijo Marka? Does it qualify for a reason why Peru has always been considered as a focal point of UFO and ET activities? Lake Titicaca has all sorts of strange lights associated with it. All the more, people have reported seeing strange blue balls of fire and even alien crafts coming out of the lake, and even reported seeing beings in some of the sightings. And these being are reported to have been tall, pale skinned and white haired, completely non indigenous to the local population. Another way the Ancient Aliens might have traveled is through Teleportation. But is it possible to make an object disappear at one place and make it appear in another? At the Max Planck Institute, they have already been able to dematerialize sub atomic particles, and made them reappear somewhere else. This could be a secret the ancient people knew. The area around Puerta del Hijo Marka still holds the energy and its evident as you approach the area.

But is Puerta del Hijo Marka the only mysterious place in Peru? Are there other mysterious places here? High up in the mountains of Peru, 850 miles from the Gate pf the Gods, is a breathtaking 2 mile long plateau another area of reportedly high energy. For centuries it has been a powerful scared place among the Incan people. Its called Markawasi. Markawasi is said to have very bizarre energy patterns. According to Kathy Moore, “Markawasi is a place of wizards and genies and people treat it with a great deal of veneration. When people go there, they experience a special kind of energy – or a state of Euphoria”. Most geologists believe that the stone figures at Markawasi are naturally formed through weathering and other natural processes. But is there more here than first meets the eye? Some consider Markawasi as a massive sculpture garden left behind by some ancient civilization. Could this then be not just a collection of rocks, but a sanctuary of stone monuments made by ancient civilization hundreds of thousands years ago. Researcher Daniel Rousseau was the first to make this claim in 1952. According to Kathy Moore, “He was shown a photograph of a colossal head made of stone, up in the high mountains above Lima. He made an expedition just to see the stone face, and one at Markawasi, he was astonished to see there were hundreds of such carved stones”. Among these figures people have been able to decipher few very prominent ones:

If these figures are man made, who may have carved them? The local legend says that its a place of ancient giant gods. In fact when the Spanish chroniclers came to Peru and investigated the shamanic traditions there, they were told about God named Viracocha who came in garb of man to inspect his territory, and he had given men different orders, and there were some who disobeyed them, and he promptly turned them to stone. The name Markawasi provides a clue to the time and origin of the place. The name itself predates the Incan Empire. According to Daniel Rousseau, the name Markawasi probably meant two storied house and referred to the strange complex of buildings located on the site. Rousseau further states that the ancient people who built Markawasi were called the Masma and supposedly, Peru was not their only home. Robert M Schoch observes, “The Masma were very ancient, very advanced civilization, who seemed to have had a global existence and have traveled worldwide at a very early period, in prerecorded history. Rousseau spent a lot of time looking for evidences of this civilization and seemed to have finally found it in Markawasi. He thought Markawasi was some kind of a sculpture garden built by the Masma”. If a global community of such advancement existed, whet happened to it? Was it, as some believe wiped out in the great flood, described in the Bible? Was this created as a record of events or a memento that could be passed on to the future generations, because they thought they were not going to live forever and they wanted to leave some kind of a record or warning for future generations. The next perplexing question is, if such an advanced civilization existed in antiquity, where did they come from. According to Author, George Hunt Williamson, “Markawasi was a sacred forest where the Ancient Aliens met to plan for the future and many UFO researchers believe they are still returning to this day”. David Childress says, “the most famous UFO photograph from Peru, was taken by a businessman near Markawasi, who himself was trekking up to the Markawasi Plateau, and when he saw down the valley he saw a bright silvery disk floating in the valley in broad daylight. This happened in the 70s”. Does Markawasi emit a special kind of energy and if so, have they been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Although we do not clearly understand the anomalies in these areas, however the presence of a high energy emissions, electromagnetic impulses, geomagnetic anomalies, subterranean electricity and such possibilities cannot be undermined or overruled.

Is there a reason why these inter dimensional portals appear on certain spots on our planet? Is there a pattern that could be formed. Is there a code and if yes, did our ancestors know about it? According to the ancient Astronaut theorists, the energy fields around the world are not randomly located. they are connected by what is known as the World Energy Grid – a geometric pattern of energy that crisscrosses the globe. According to David Childress, “the energy fields across the world are stronger in some areas as compared to the others, and in these areas they form sort of a Vortex, thereby making the energy more useful in its sense”. The Earth Grid Theory States that the Earth Energy Fields are connected with one another by means of a geometric pattern, and this has existed since time earth was created.

The concept of Energy Grid, for our civilization extends back to the Pythagorean School of Thought in ancient Greece. The theory states that the Earth is a dodecahedron (δωδεκάεδρον) and the geometric shapes and forms is all that matter is composed of, including the Earth. Hence it draws a parallel between them causing an energy interchange at certain prominent points of the  dodecahedron. Another puzzling phenomena brought to notice by French UFO Investigator Mitchel, was that the UFO sightings do not happen in random. There is a route map and a pattern to where the UFO sightings happen and it follows not only the exact longitude patterns, but also the Earth Energy Grid. Mitchel’s report was based upon every single UFO sighting since the Roswell incident. Scientists now believe that the concentration of energy levels and UFO sightings are not a matter of coincidence. The megalithic structures in these special locations were crested to amplify the energy fields. Its a Theory known as Geomancy. By creating pyramid shaped structures and tall stone obelisks, we can magnify and channelize this power. It works on earth exactly the same way acupuncture works on the human body. In Europe, thousands of km of land stretches have been logically connected through straight lines, they are called Lead Lines. These lead lines stretch all the way from England, to France down to Italy. And on these lead lines we have names of places, and the common factor to all of these names is the word ‘star’. This cannot be attributed to the stone age man. Someone told them to do so. And they most often were called Gods, or people who came from the skies. So the question is were these people extraterrestrials? Unless the scientific community is logically able to derive answers to some of the most mysterious places on earth, we will only be left with lingering questions, and ones that cannot be answered with the approach the conventional scholarship have been taking since time immemorial. Are some of these places really inter dimensional portals, did the ancient aliens transport them through these Star Gates to another dimension. We are only left with perplexing question, that we need answers to. And answers will come only if we THINK.

Modern human technologies – unmatched in our long history. Or maybe not. Scientists and scholars have started thinking of late that an equally advanced technology and a civilization capable of harnessing the power of nature may have existed in the past. Evidences of such an existence could be located all over the world. We find tell tale signs of what can be truly called, space age technology. Could it be that out ancestors who are not credited to be nothing more than hunters gatherers, applied technology that could match ours, if not superior, on a world wide scale? Could modern scientific community learn somethings from their ancient fore-bearers? For thousands of years mankind has gazed in awe at the night sky, watching the slow but relentless movement. People witnessed that the movement of the stars precisely matched the ebb and flow of seasons. This gave rise to the calendar and the agriculture. But some objects in the sky did not follow any path, seeming to defy the law that binds all things. These Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs challenged human understanding provoking a quest that continues to this day.

We all have to agree that UFO reporting are as old as old as man has left any records at all. Even in the ancient cave paintings more than 20,000 years ago, we find evidences of such beings being sighted on the surface of this planet, something that we are yet to find a reason for. So we have to go at least that far to find the first evidences of when UFO sightings were first recorded.

Forever frozen in silence and in stone, these provocative drawings raise questions that are debated to this day. For some these drawings represent Gods or ancestral spirits, but for others, they represent Ancient Spacecrafts, or Ancient Aliens. Texts from worlds earliest civilizations including Sumeria’s, more than 5,000 years ago mention strange aerial phenomena and the beings who controlled them. According to Dr. Richard L Thompson, “there are ancient records where people describe different kinds of flying objects which they have seen, people have described what they understood as strange flying objects piloted by different category of living beings. They have written accounts which describe this in great detail”. The images are provocative and controversial. Stanton Friedman, the author of Top Secret/ Majic observes, “a lot depend upon how you interpret the signs that you see. Whether the painting is just a sketch on the wall or a space helmet, or a diving helmet or a decorative headgear or perhaps the work of a science fiction writer from several thousand years ago. So the further back you go the harder it is to interpret.

Despite increasing public support for the notion that aliens have been visiting earth since the dawn of history, the conventional scientific community is overwhelmingly skeptical about the subject. Primitive man did witness weird events in the sky, something that they interpret as “activities of God” and their life being controlled by wishes of God. However in almost all such instances, there is an alternative, ‘scientific’ explanation to the situation – it might have been a meteor, a lightning, or something that fits into the scientific minds of out civilization. Despite such widespread skepticism on the subject, there has been an equal abundance of what er call evidences of such inexplicable encounters.  Just like the study of conventional History, we can categorize these sightings into chronological order – Ancient, Medieval and Contemporary or Modern.

Ancient Sightings : This encounter is reported from Egypt and happened more than 3,500 years ago. This is a story reported by 3 Egyptian Pharaohs who reported seeing circles of sire in the sky; its started off with 1 and then a few days later there were many of them in the sky. They were so impressed that it was recorded in a Papyrus and the event was considered very momentous. This is how the narration goes, “in the year 22 of the 3rd month of the winter, a circle or fire appeared in the sky. After some days it became more numerous and shone with the brightness of the sun extending  to the very limits of the heavens. Records of Pharaoh Tuthmosis 14 BCE“. Centuries later, the mighty Greek Emperor, Alexander is chronicled to have witnessed UFO. While crossing a river in 329 BC, Alexander and his men observed what is described as gleaming silver shields in the sky. The object repeatedly swooped down on a column of soldiers scattering men and horses in panic. 7 years later, while attacking the Phoenician city of Tyrus in Eastern Mediterranean Alexander is again said to have witnessed UFO. Recorded by observers on both sides of the conflict, “one of the objects suddenly shoots a beam of light at the city wall, which then crumbles into dust, allowing Alexander and his men to easily breach the defenses and take the city“. The passage of centuries leave us with little to confirm whether these events actually took place or were this fragments 0f imagination of fertile and imaginative minds.

Medieval Sightings: Medieval Europe was witness of one such incident in 1463, when a strange ‘slab like’ object was reported in the sky. Surrounded by bright light, it glided eerily above the landscape. One such drawing was made by Herman Chardon, a witness to the event. Another incident was reported by eye witnesses, about a century later on the skies of Nuremberg, Germany. On the morning of April 14, 1561 huge round cylinders was said to have appeared above the city. Smaller circular objects seem to appear form them, engaging in battle with one another. 5 years later a similar incident was reported in the skies of Basil, Switzerland. This time many of the objects attacked one another, were consumed by fire and then vanished without trace. Once again the encounter was documented by a local witness.

Modern/ Contemporary Signtings : By the 19th century, the world seems to be resonating with the idea of Unidentified Flying Objects. Countless theories were proposed as to what they were and where they came from. The subject of UFO is a controversial one where the supporters of either view, are on a ongoing debate. Today we have a large population of people reporting UFO sightings and their reports are consistent in terms of the shape, size and other details. And these descriptions are also consistent with what has been reported since ancient past and thus a notion that people are just ‘seeing’ things, as they have been ‘seeing’ them over the centuries may not be a correct notion after all. For centuries scholars have grappled with the idea of UFO, what they are, where they might have come from and who are their possible occupants. As the 20th Century unfolded, mankind witnessed bizarre events in the sky, and countless number of them. The most important recorded event was perhaps the Roswell incident in New Mexico, USA. UFO sightings virtually have occurred everywhere, from the skies to bustling metropolis to deserted highways, they could be witnessed almost everywhere, and all across the world. The reasons and geneses thereof still lies shrouded in mystery, something that we attempt to throw some light

The Biblical Standpoint to the Ancient Alien Theory : The saga of events that have occurred in the landscape of Middle East, is enshrined in the western world’s most revered book – The Holy Bible. In recent years The Bible has been increasingly touted by some investigators as a description of a series of encounters with Aliens and UFO. But the topic is controversial. Can the sacred nature of the Biblical texts be challenged? According to Dr. Thomas R. McDonough, S.E.T.I Coordinator, Planetary Society, “the decline of religion in the recent years as witnessed by several people across the world, people are now looking for an alternative answer. An answer that is more scientific. So instead of believing in a supernatural intervention that seems to have certainly happened in the past, the world is now coming to terms with the notion that advanced civilizations might have visited the our planet in the pas. And this notion quite fits the narration of events as we have witnessed in many ancient religious and sacred texts”. The search for ET visitations and evidences thereof, takes us to the earlier chapters of the Holy Bible – to the Book of Genesis. Genesis describes the conditions in the world at the dawn of time. “There were giants on earth in those days, and also after that.  When the sons of Gods came to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them” – Genesis 6:4. Who were the Giants and the Sons of Gods mentioned in the text? While most of the English based Bible uses the word Giants, the Original Hebrew word for Nephilim (נפלים). The word Nephilim simply translates to “those who came down”, in English; meaning those who came down from the sky. And this translation has an uncanny similarity with the word Annunaki – which when translated from Sumerian to English, means “those who from the heavens came”. So they might not be physical giants, they could well be heroes with extraordinary powers who came form the heavens and formed a hybrid race with the earth population. A similar translation could also be located in Egypt and Ancient Sumeria where descriptions of Annunaki and other ‘Lord of the skies’ are found, and they are said to have created a hybrid population through sexual reproduction and gene mutation.

The Bible also contains other UFO references, or the ones that could be interpret as such, and ones that were very well chronicled. One of the best example of a classic UFO story is the story of Moses. 3,500 years ago an epic period in Biblical history begins, when Israelite slaves are finally released from bondage in Egypt. Under leadership of Moses, they began their 40 year long trek through the wilderness, a route to the promised land. But according tot he Bible something very strange guides them them through the barren desert. “The roar went before them, by the day, in a pillar of cloud to lead the way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light – Exodus 14:21”. Some believe that the Biblical description contains a different dimension as opposed to the one long cherished by Christians and Jews. The pillar of smoke and fire that Moses followed through the wilderness is interpret to be a cigar shaped UFO – so sort of advanced form of life that guided these men through.

Some of the most intriguing Biblical description surround Mount Sinai and the handing down of the Ten Commandments. “Mount Sinai was covered in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire and the smoke ascended like a smoke in a furnace and the whole mountain quaked loudly and when the voice of the trumpets sounded and waxed louder, Moses spake and God answered” – Exodus 19:80. When Moses returns with the Ten Commandments after his encounter with God on Mount Sinai, his skin mysteriously shines with an unearthly glow, his hair had turned snow white. Many in both scientific and theologian community now translate this to be an exposure to radiation. The episode of Moses thus goes down as a classic example of ET encounter at the dawn of civilization.

However this idea of a possible alien intervention has been fiercely challenged by the scientific community and also by mainstream archeologists and historians. According to Dr. Richard L. Thompson, “We are dealing with interpretation of an issue that has a potential of being highly controversial, after all if your hypothesis says Jesus was an ET, then it changes the meaning of religion in a very fundamental way”. Dr. Thomas R. McDonough observes, “if a hypothesis happens to be so radical in nature, then it might as well be backed up be very strong evidences/ proofs. Else the mainstream society that has been thriving on a fully formed belief system for last few thousand years, would say, you are just gullible”. Apart from the book of Exodus, another place where we witness events that could be interpret as ET encounters, is “2nd Book of Kings”. Here we have narrations about Prophet Elisha (Hebrew אֱלִישַׁע)who lived 900 years before the time of Jesus. While Elisha was crossing river Jordan with his son Elisha, strange airborne craft appears. “And suddenly a chariot of fire appeared driven by the horses of fire, and Elisha saw his father going to heaven and cried, but he saw his father no more2nd Kings 2:11“. According to Dr. Thomas R. McDonough, “In most of the ancient cultures you have narrations and evidences of flying chariots or strange vehicles that are capable of flying through the air, and are driven by their own power. Modern day equivalent to these strange airborne vehicles would be UFO. This description of Elisha, for instance, is consistent with what we call Alien Abduction in modern day parlance.

Barely three centuries after the incident of Elisha, another strange incident occurs. This time it concerns the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel.  He is said to have encountered ET and UFO in 4 separate occasions. In one he clearly describes, a mechanical devices under the control of human like figures. “I saw 4 wheels, 1 wheel beside each cherub. In appearance they were like sparkling topaz and all 4 of them were alike. Wheel within a wheel, they moved in all 4 directions never swerving from their course” – Ezekiel 10:8. Based upon description provided by Ezekiel, NASA Scientist Joseph Blumrich constructed a model.Is this what Ezekiel saw?

The Near Eastern Accounts: Despite the ambiguity of the Biblical accounts, other accounts from pre-history have intensified the debate. Some could be interpret to suggest that ET encounters have influenced pivotal events human history. Artifacts discovered throughout Near East, speak of a time when Humanity’s ancestors came from the heavens. Hundred of clay tablets depict human like figures with ‘wings’, denoting something to do with the sky and always conspicuous – the stars. The Sumerians and Babylonians strongly believe that their civilization was given to them be beings who came down from the heaven. According to conventional scientific standpoint, “there are intriguing stories,  but none of these could be considered as conclusive”. However mainstream scientific community cannot really provide a logically conclusive answer to how, human ingenuity and engineering started fro stone age and almost overnight burst forth onto the landscape of history – creating structures and monuments that are unmatched in precision and design even to this date.

Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza have always been en enigma to the scientific community as well as to the historians. Their correct age, is debatable. According to Graham Hancock, “the Great Pyramid of Egypt stands more than 450 ft tall, it weighs more than 6,000,000 tones, and it has a foot print in excess of 13 acres. Its perfectly aligned to true North, South, East and West. To achieve that precision of alignment with a monument of this scale is an extraordinary technological feat, and one that is continuously overlooked by our scholars today. Suddenly out of nowhere this monument – an achievement of technology and engineering appears in the deserts of Egypt. This is a mystery and one that is totally unexplained by conventional history. My sense says that we are missing a huge part of the human story – maybe its possible that we are a species with amnesia, and we have forgotten a large part of our own history going back to thousands of years at the beginning of so called history and if we perhaps could go back to that dark epoch we would find many astounding facts about ourselves”. Egypt is not the only place that asks us to go figure how these monuments were built. Such intriguing sites could be located all over the world.

So what after all is the genesis of human civilization? Where have we come from? Have we really forgotten a very significant part of our history, as Graham Hancock points out? The geneses of all the religions speak about Gods, Heroes and Angels who descend from the skies, and are attributed with powers unknown to mankind prior to that. And these powerful human like creatures are regarded as Gods. These Gods also bear children with the daughters of men. This is narrated in the Bible, Hebrew texts, the Annunaki accounts from Sumeria and Babylonia. All across the world we are encountered, time and again, with megalithic structures the precision and magnitude of which remain unmatched even to this day. How did primitive man create these monuments? How was he able to haul the raw material used for making such monuments? And the technology? Where did that come from? Questions… But no answers. We still continue out existence, in this world, wake up every morning under a sanitized view that we are all alone in the universe, and that the human history began as we have been taught in schools. However there are questions that remain unanswered to this date and ones that perhaps cannot be accounted for, satisfactorily, with the conventional and mainstream way of thinking that is contaminated with short sightedness. PLEASE THINK AGAIN.

On July 24, 1911, explorer Hiram Bingham was led by Peruvian guides to the mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu—a discovery that brought this extraordinary Inca site to the attention of the world. “It fairly took my breath away,” Bingham said of the magnificent ruins set amid soaring Andean peaks. The following year, the National Geographic Society provided Bingham with a grant to excavate the site, and our connection to this ancient wonder has continued ever since.

But there is more to Machu Picchu – from the Ancient Alien Theory standpoint. A feat of engineering, this site seems to have been created by being of higher intelligence. While human ingenuity cannot be entirely ruled out, but we witness definite evidences of knowledge transfer, without which a construction of such magnitude and precision would not have been made possible, only by primitive/ medieval man. The saga of Machu Picchu shall be looked into, in a separate entry of this blog, this being just a ‘centenary’ entry – a tribute.
