Ancient Astronauts?

– – The notion of ancient astronauts (namely extraterrestrials) visiting earth and spurring the development of human culture, technologies, and religions is nothing new, and found popularity during the later twentieth century in the writings of Erich von Daniken and others.  Ancient astronaut theories have been widely used in science fiction, but have not received support within the scientific community.  Astrophysicist Carl Sagan and others have concluded that extraterrestrial visits to earth were possible but unproven, and likely improbable.

The History Channel now has an Ancient Astronaut series that may pique your curiosity if you haven’t been down  this trail before.  It’s good fun, and you may want to believe as you’re exposed to ancient religious texts and physical specimens such as cave drawings, stone sculptures, and pyramids…

    “As I’ve told you before, Watson: once you’ve eliminated the possible, whatever remains (however improbable) must be THE TRUTH!”

    I’ve a feeling I may have paraphrased the original quote, unintentionally. But, it still sounds like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s masterful dialogue! Doesn’t it?
