UFOs, history and the hardware

Ancient UFOs were my first ‘esoteric’ study, but looking back on it, there was nothing esoteric about it. Erich Von Daniken was pretty clear in his assumptions that what ancient peoples took for “gods” or “god’s chariots” were mechanical, material contrivances. Von Daniken’s photographic proofs of many ancient sites, stone architectures/carvings, artifacts and paintings of strange, hard to explain objects that could only be used as examples of ‘flying objects’ in relation to our own present day aircraft technology could these things only be hoped to identify.

Von Daniken was immediately poo-pooed by the mainstream archeology community of course and in later years, many in the so-called esoteric community did the same. It must have been his rather flambouyant style that did Von Daniken in. There could only be one P.T. Barnum.

Zecharia Sitchen is another proponent of the ancient UFO theory, only his was more refined and specific to one area, the Middle East. Namely the old Tigris/Euphrates valley cultures of the Sumerians, Ur, Uruk, Umma, Lagash, Nippur and Kish. The Sumerian city-states are reportedly the first (ur)ban cultures to arise from the Neolithic and the first to arise fully armed for advanced civilization, i.e., writing, numbers, laws, brick and stone buildings, roads, farming communities supporting the city, a ruling elite and most of all, standing armies.

Sitchen’s contention is that the Sumerian culture arose so quickly, so advanced and so complete with no traceable primitive cultures to track back to means that maybe, just maybe, they had some help. So he studied the most obvious telling feature of the Sumerian civilization, its writing and language. Heck, why not? Let the Sumerians themselves explain how they came about!

And here is how we know about the Annunaki, Nibiru ( Planet X ), Tiamat, the Adamu, Nephilim and other stories that have been handed down to us through Jewish and Christian scholars over the millenia into our Western Culture. Almost all the early chapters of the Torah and Bible are copies of the much older Sumerian texts, word for word, story for story practically. Scholars, both secular and theological have their disagreements with that statement, but I’m not going to go over that at this time. I’m going to comment on the hardware of the Annunaki.

Below is a carving of the Annunaki giving the ancesters of the Sumerians (the Adamu) laws and civilization. Notice the obvious ‘manufactured’ look to it.

Sumerian deity Ianna (?) or Dumuzi bringing the gift of culture to Uruk.

Check out this site here if you wish to study more about the Sumerians and the Annunaki.

In modern times, the nuclear engineer turned UFO investigator Stan Friedman is the most ardent supporter of the ‘nuts and bolts’ theory of UFOs, his studies go back to the time of the original nuts and bolts theorist J. Allen Hynek in the late 1950s, early 1960s.

Friedman’s technological take on UFOs in understandable in my view because, let’s face it, how can a nuclear engineer look at it otherwise? C’mon! But the man is labeled a ‘fossil’ in some circles ( okay, he’s a senior citizen, but who ain’t gonna be unless ya die first, WTF! ) and a new wave of UFO theorists are taking the field, or already have taken the field, and have been advocating the ‘paranormal’ theory.

But I wouldn’t throw Friedman’s studies out with the bathwater just yet if I were them. Check this out:

Bird strike, or something else?

Looks like something pretty solid hit here, huh? WTF was it?

Is it paranormal, para-metal or Memorex?

Read Ted Twietmeyer’s essay about this here.

So what can we conclude from this evidence? The mainstream says, “What evidence?”, and then stick their heads back in the sand or posteriors. But what about my fellow skeptics out there, machine, or mental manipulation? Both maybe?

Both? “C’mon Dad, yer over-dosin’ on yer seizure meds agin” you’re thinking.

But maybe that isn’t such a wild idea after all. We’ll check that out later!

Update: Check out Lloyd Pye’s site, http://www.lloydpye.com/ and click on the ‘Intervention’ then ‘Sumer’ slideshow links. Pye is an advocate of Sitchen obviously, but the site is full of good information.

    Yo, leather-necked wonder!

    I checked out Twietmeyer’s site, and noticed some errors in his remarks about how high birds can fly. I’ve known for some time that geese can get up there pretty high… I believe the record for a solitary Canada Goose is around the 30,000 ft. mark, (according to Guinness) but I found some other data that might interest…

    Migration of Birds

    That impact has a distinct ‘angel-shaped’ mark that a heavy bird like a Canada goose could inflict, if struck at an odd angle. The paint chips were likely formed when the metal creased. And, not all bird impacts leave a trail of gore behind them, although it’s rare for it not to be there.

    I still don’t believe that Earth would pose any significant interest for any other life form intelligent enough for interstellar travel, nevermind play “Where’s Waldo” with us. That is characteristic with human folly, though.

    Like the Vulcans said about Earthmen… “Too primitive.”

    I agree. Add to that, too dumb.

    Stupid People

    And then there’s the electoral process… ’nuff said.

  2. A guy I work with said the same thing, big ass goose.

    That straight line thing still bugs me though, and the no blood.

    As for these things playing “Where’s Waldo” with us, I think it was Whitley Strieber who said that “They want us to believe, but not too much.”

    For the record, I don’t think we’re dealing with aliens in the classical sense, nor are we dealing with demons.

    They act too much like us.

    There’s a strategy to all of this in that people seem to need some kind of common foe to get them together, just like 911 provided vilification for the big bad “mooselum” hordes, so that we could go trapezing into the Middle East, guns a-blazin, and take control of the oil reserves and make trillion$ off of ‘reconstruction’. Otherwise, people are hard to distract from their mad race to consume and out-do their neighbor in the collection of things and fiat currency.

    The threat of an alien invasion would do wonders toward justifying an astronomically accelerated arms race, and the consolidation of countries not yet under the United Nations web. There wouldn’t be any limit to the potential for destroying national sovereignty in favor of the new global collective. Hell, this is merely one way this goal could be accomplished! Try a whole passel of different tricks, and go with whatever works. The sheeple are too lazy and complacent to catch on. Besides, American Idol, sports, Wheel of Fortune are on… no time for that fucking conspiracy crap!

    Father Dad… bless me, for I have sinned. I actually started giving a damn about society! A fool in his folly is the most dangerous animal on Earth!

  4. LOL HW! You never cease to crack me up! :))

    As an aside though, the fake ‘alien’ attack theory has been thrown about the ‘Tubes lately, mainly at sites like Rense.com.

    Frankly, I’ll wait for those undead fuckers Kissinger and Bu$hco #1 to finally kick the bucket first, they’re the ones in the first place to advocate such bullshit and make it work.

    To whom this may concern, I have been researching sumerian annunaki nibiru. For a while and I’m curious more about nephilim and hollow earth theorys. To me the hollow earth feels right. I don’t follow up on government mis and dis info. To me that’s a given. So please send or refer me info or number. I want to get involved. I’m familiar with zacharia sitchom. He’s brilliant. Please inquire back.

  8. Jeremy, Google Zacharia Sitchin and you will get more information than you can handle. As for the Hollow Earth Theory, I don’t follow that as readily as most, but Google Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s 1947 Expedition to Antarctica and his Diary. In his diary he speaks about people from Hollow Earth (possibly). Good luck!

  9. […] has been four years since I wrote my popular blog post UFOs, history and the hardware and while I have researched other subjects over that time, researching UFOs and what they might be […]
