Monday! And a fine day for an introduction to aliens and UFOs in ancient art :)
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
The appearance of fiery chariots and hovering discs in Renaissance Era paintings - as well as beings working their controls and/or attired in garb that we commonly recognize today as spacesuits - proves, at least, that UFOs were being sighted in medieval times. While no direct connection can be isolated from this, between space aliens and religious icons, there certainly is a lot of supernatural phenomena associated in and around these depictions.UFOs in Ancient Art
One possible explanation is that these paintings were commissioned (by the church or the state) to place these phenomena in a deified context. Officially declared to be the vessels of angels, the peasants would ask fewer annoying questions - that likely, the clergy of the day had scant answers for themselves. It is likely that ancient UFO sightings coincided with important historical and political events - and just as likely that the sightings impressed, or pressured, leaders of the day to take bold, or unusual actions.
One set of images depicts a late 8th century battle, in which Saxon Crusaders besieged and surrounded the people of Sigiburg Castle, in France - when suddenly a group of saucers appeared in the sky, apparently hovering over the top of the church. The Saxons fled, believing that the French were being protected by the "flaming shields."
There are many internet websites that make claims that are quite extraordinary. This particular article addresses the claim that there are pictures of Aliens on the walls of temples and tombs in Ancient Egypt. Let's examine one such popular claim.
While the figure in the picture might bear some similarity to what we today think extraterrestrial beings look like, an open mind would reserve judgment until better quality photographs could be examined, as photographic evidence appears to be the single basis of the websites' theory. As it turns out, those authors hope that you do not have the resources to try to find them, and as a further discouragement they cite an out of print book, In the Shadow of the Pyramids. Neither the author nor the date is cited. Fortunately, it is not hard to find information about a book from its title, and one doesn't have to go to too much trouble to find that the author is Jaromír Málek, and that the book was first published in 1986.
What before looked like a mouth now we see is a container and the head doesn't look like a head at all, but is a water lily (Lotus) blossom. The "eyes" here no longer resemble eyes. But what are they? Recall that the context in which this relief is found is that of an offering scene. This is an offering of a Lotus. The peculiar figure pictured is the image of a lotus blossom, with a bud on each side of it, placed in a vase or jar as an offering. Is it possible to confirm this? Yes. In another relief in the same tomb depicts a man gathering lotus blossoms as he places them in a basket:Ancient Egyptian alien Debunked
Okay, here's another possible ancient Egyptian alien depiction:
I would like to mention pyramid of Giza which definitely look to me work of aliens, its fact now which scientist agreed that even with modern technology and same workforce its impossible to build the pyramid of giza in the time ancient egyptian folks did.
Here are some facts which can clear things up for great pyramid of gizaUm, that's interesting. Might be a good idea for a diary. I've always wondered about the pyramids. Source
1) If you take the perimeter of the pyramid and divide it by two times its height, you get a number that is exactly equivalent to the number pi (3.1415…) up to the fifteenth digit. The chances of this phenomenon happening by sheer chance is remarkably small. Did the ancient Egyptians know what the number pi was? I don’t think so, seeing as it was a number not calculated accurately to the fourth digit until the 6th century, and the pyramids calculate it to the fifteenth.
2) What about the fact that even though the sides of the base of the pyramid are some 757 feet long, it still forms an almost perfect square? Every angle in the base is exactly 90 degrees. In fact, the sides have a difference in length of something like two centimeters, which is an incredibly small amount.
3) What about the fact that although the Egyptians kept very careful records about everything they ever did every king they had, every war they fought, every structure they built but still there were no records of them ever having built the pyramids?
4) What about the fact that the Egyptians had not even invented the wheel yet, but the blocks that they had to carry to build the pyramids weighed about 2 tons each? 4,000 lbs. In fact, they used so much stone, that if you took all of the stone they used and cut it into 1 foot square blocks, it would extend 2/3 of the way around the earth.
5) How about the fact that a group of modern scientists attempted to build a pyramid out next to the real one using modern technologies, and after something like 100 days, succeeded in building one about 1/40 of the size of the real one.
The ancient Peruvians wanted to send a cheerful welcome message to visiting aliens. Maybe.
The Annunciation celebrates the announcement of Gabriel to Mary that she would conceive the son of God. This picture settles the mystery of pregnancy without conception: alien saucers shoot light beams which impregnated Earth women. The Bible is a fascinating read when you replace the word "God" with "alien overlord."Well. Uh...there definitely are wee pilots! And controls! Before Leonardo Da Vinci and his helicopter!
For historical reference...
