Ancient Aliens Season 3, Episode 3

Postby padma norbu » Wed Oct 05, 2011 5:58 pm

They discuss a temple in India that was carved out of a rock. Pretty darn impressive to say the least. The whole episode is quite interesting (as is the series in general, for the most part). A lot of stuff has been covered in this series that I've gone on to research for myself and found out most of it seems quite true.

This was the first episode that actually bugged me because I was like "uh... stupa is a means for travelling into space? Never heard that before. The various beings painted on the thangkas etc. are genetic experiments of aliens? Sure, okay..."

Now, if I wasn't already familiar with Buddhism, I'd probably think that in the context of the full episode and the previous episodes that this made sense because when they point right after the Buddhist temple bit, there is a church in Ethiopia that was carved out of solid rock from the top down supposedly with the help of angels, I'm like, "yeah, that sounds like aliens to me!" And when they talk about other monsters, I think "yeah, that could be genetic experiments," but, as soon as they get to Garuda, I'm like, "uh, no." The episode about monsters/genetic experiments is Season 3, Episode 2, by the way, which is also on YouTube.

The first 2 seasons were great, imo. I'm just starting the 3rd season and this material seems weaker, but these churches and temples are certainly amazing and suspicious feats for ancient man. Angkor Wat is something else, too.

Yes this is a well known and frequented tourist site.

My folks went last time they were in India.

But I don't know why they put it into this crappy show. :jumping:

Nah, what's ridiculous is not being able to see that Christian art obviously shows UFOs.

I mean, really... http://www.spiritandflesh.com/Christian ... ligion.htm

"At last, a serious and thoughtful book about this controversial subject. Skeptics and true believers will find a treasure trove of insightful and eye opening information. This book is bound to set the gold standard for UFO research."
—Michio Kaku, Ph.D. Author of Physics of the Impossible and host of Sci Fi Science on the Science Channel

“I was astonished by the care and precision of Leslie Kean’s research in this terrific book. Her analysis is carefully reasoned and to the point; her craftsmanship in organization and writing are superb. Her expose' raises important questions: Why does the US government create public distrust by neglecting this important topic? Why do its agencies avoid investigating cases of interference with flight operations and instead issue absurd cover-up stories? This book is ultimately an appeal to all scholars for an "extraordinary investigation of an extraordinary phenomenon.”
—Rudy Schild, Ph.D., Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

“Like me, Leslie Kean is an agnostic on the issue of UFOs. Her book is a fine piece of journalism - not about beliefs, but about facts. Kean presents the most accurate, most credible reports on UFO's you will ever find. She has fought long and hard to discover the facts and let the chips fall where they may. She may not have the final smoking gun, but I smell the gunpowder.”
—Miles O'Brien, former CNN space/science correspondent

“I find explanations offered by UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists to be implausible, but I also have little patience with "deniers" who ridicule credible reports. Leslie Kean has found a thoughtful path between extreme views, documenting the UFO mystery with intelligence and insight. She makes a strong case for U.S. participation in official, international UFO investigations and for public dissemination of the results. The fascinating first-hand accounts make this a thought-provoking book, even for those of us who don’t know much about UFOs.”
—Neal Lane, Ph.D., Rice University; former Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

“If you don't know much about UFOs, you must read this book. If you think that UFO reports are nonsense, this book will disabuse you of that notion. Leslie Kean's UFOs informs readers at every level of knowledge and belief. It could, and should, become the "tipping point" that leads to public acceptance of the reality of UFOs and all of its implications.”
—Don Donderi, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, McGill University (Ret.)

“In an area of study where there aren’t many, this is a serious book. It is credible, clear, and compelling, without any farfetched jumps in logic and assumption. Its credibility begins on the first page with John Podesta and continues with case studies of extraordinary quality to the very end. Leslie Kean not only makes the case for, but calls for, a whole new concrete and realistic perspective on UFOs that has more honesty and integrity than any other that I have read. This is a book for anyone with an open mind.”
—John L. Petersen, Founder & President of The Arlington Institute

“In these pages we are confronted head-on by the UFO phenomenon as revealed firsthand by highly credible government officials and military aviation experts. Their credibility and integrity cannot be questioned, and their firsthand observations cannot be ignored. Leslie Kean provides a challenging analysis and she writes with penetrating depth and insight. The revelations in this book constitute a watershed event in lifting the taboo against rational discourse about this controversial subject.”
—Harold E. Puthoff, Ph.D., Director of The Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin

“When I started reading Leslie Kean’s UFOs, I found it very difficult to stop. This is an unprecedented assessment of what may be the greatest challenge ever presented to mankind. In an outstanding piece of investigative journalism, Kean provides a well-written and convincing appeal for change in dealing with a phenomenon that can no longer be ignored.”
—Jean-Claude Ribes, Ph.D., Paris Observatory (Ret.)

“For anyone who questions why - after more than fifty years of denial, ridicule, and dismissal - many scientists, academics, political figures, and military personnel still insist that the subject of UFOs should be taken seriously, this book provides the answer. Leslie Kean offers compelling documentation that physical objects, with flight characteristics not yet achievable by known technology, are being routinely reported in our skies. They represent a mystery that needs to be solved.”
—Stuart Appelle, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Science and Mathematics, State University of New York, Brockport

"Leslie Kean’s astonishing book is the finest piece of investigative journalism ever written on this subject. She has an incomparable ability to ‘give voice’ to a constituency of exceptionally qualified and unbiased first-hand observers. They are not from the fringe, not groupies, and not delusional. Rather, they are high-level military, intelligence, aerospace, and government officials who speak with authority while providing reports that document actual, physical craft. Kean’s book represents the first important step toward a new U.S. government openness about UFOs. It brings forward a reality otherwise buried for far too long inside official mystery, and elevates the discourse above that of small-minded public discussions."
—Christopher C. Green, MD, Ph.D., Harper University Hospital, Wayne State University School of Medicine

:tongue:
This series, as do all "UFO", proof relies on the human mind's misinterpretation of repitition of a topic as "proof" of the validity of that topic.
They bombard you with images, make a suggestion, then quickly switch away to another topic and another imsge,
The first time you are introduced to the topic that they want you believe it is a question such as, "Is it possible that this drawing shows a ancient crude drawing of an alien wearing a space suit"?
Then before you have time to consider the answer, they are off to another topic and image...diverting your mind from serious consideration of their question.
A short time later they show some similar images, and they ask, "Could these drawings also be ancient aliens wearing space suits"?
Again, before you have time to consider the question, your attention is diverted by another visual object.
But your mind recalls the mention of that topic previously...didn't you hear something like that before?
They do this and mention that topic they want you to believe and divert your attention from serious consideration perhaps half a dozen times.
When they think you are ready the set the hook. They show you a unclear image of an ancient "alien" wearing something that "might be" a space suit.
This time what they say is, "As we have shown before there are many depictions of ancient aliens wearig space siuts and like this one".
Because your mind has a hazy memory of being shown other similar images...you bite deep on the hook...and they reel you in.
They may go so far as to assert, "As we have PROVED before there are many images of ancient aliens wearing space suits".
But they didn't really prove anything did they?
They merely made suggestions, it was your mind connecting those suggestions, and making from those suggestions a "fact" it created from it's own illusions.
It's a standard propaganda trick used for such things as political campaigns, advertising, and other forms of misrepersentation of information.
In short, it is brainwashing.
The politest way to describe this process is "Male Cow Excretement"....but it has a less polite name that starts with the letter B.
Don't be fooled by it.
:tongue:
Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?

I love the whole UFO subject, although I am not at all sold on the alien explanation.

This is an amazing documentary on the subject: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIeGeE0uDJg

A favorite show of Megan Fox, and yet another reason why she is the perfect woman.
