Hi! My name is Josh from Las Vegas, NV. I have not completely bought into the ancient alien theory although I have not quite ruled it out either. I grew up in a very Christian home and was taught all along about the gospel of Christ. The Elders in the Christian Church argue that the world is only 3000-3500 years old, which as a kid growing up in the church never questioned. Now that I am growing older and starting to seek the truth I am finding it very hard to believe that the world is only 3500 years old.
The proof is out there that the world is a lot older than 3500 years old and i think the Church is naive and somewhat narcissistic to believe otherwise. The history books in the schools of America teach a history that is different from what I believe has actually happened in the past in order to keep the Church happy.
I have been exploring all over North America the last 5 years looking for clues about the world's history not only socially, but geologically as well. Just in my backyard, in the mountains of Nevada where there are no trees because there is not enough water to sustain anything other than small shrubs and cacti I have found evidence that water was once everywhere in this region. I have found fossils of sea shells in caves high up in these mountains, as well as fossils of fish and other various ancient aquatic creatures.
As far as Ancient Aliens goes, I am still on the fence. I do know that history is a whole lot different than what we were taught, but I don't think the ancient alien theorists give early man enough credit. I think that it is entirely possible that there have been cultures on earth tens of thousands of years ago that were every bit as advanced as ours that may have been lost to time, erosion, and weathering. If you ended our current society abruptly, what is it that you would find of us 10,000 years from now? Not a whole lot since our buildings are mostly made of wood which decays, and steel that erodes. The only structures that will stand the test of time are ones made out of stone, and any highly developed society would build structures in the most cost efficient way in order to support a healthy economy.
Is it possible that the only evidence we are finding of ancient cultures is the more primitive ones, since they were less advanced and used brute force and simple tools to work with stone? Is it possible that those cultures eventually developed in to more advanced societies that there is little or no evidence of because they stopped working with stone? I think the answer is yes!
