Ancient Aliens, Spoiler Alert!

there is a series named Ancient Aliens on Netflix which I have really enjoyed apart from the fact that some of their theories are far fetched, I found it thought-provoking and entertaining.

Some of the ideas they have discussed are, why our ancestors were obsessed with hybrid creatures? why there are significant similarities between the Giza pyramids and the Mexican pyramids? why do some of the ancient engineering look so advanced, accurate? why do some places on the earth have such important methodologies about creature descending from the sky?

do you like to watch these sorts of programs?

I have read a lot of books, on the subject, and while in Belize I visited several Mayan sites. Some of the joints are so tight, you have to wonder how they created them, and how long it took them. There are cave drawings of men in space suits in some places, so you have to wonder how that idea came about. Sadly due to greed, and a lack of understanding several great civilisations ceased to exist. If they had been left alone, so we could have learned from them who knows what other break through's we might have had. Reply

I find the pyramids amazing as acts of engineering & construction.
Von Daniken's books are good fun but most of his claims are explained by the art being stylised rather like Picaso plus some claims are outright misinterpretation.
Why similar designs appeared on different continents is fascinating as is the fact that written alphabets have common genesis. The letter B is represented as a foot (from the side including the ankle) in one alphabet but in another it's reoresented by the shape of the sole. Hence our letter B in our current alphabet.
Aliens do exist by the way. You sometimes see them hanging round on street corners, speaking in tongues & dribbling while having difficulty crossing the road.

All speculation isn't it Wafaa ? ..Goodness knows what they were smoking back then - as now :), and if I were you I'd take Minnie's Erich von Däniken with a large pinch of salt.
.
One thing about these structures seems to be their effectiveness as solar heat storage devices for something... Perhaps for comfortably conducting public BBQ's near the top on a leeward side when the weather was otherwise inclement :). Then the Egyptian ones might have had extra wooden platforms temporarily erected to facilitate that ?
.
I do feel the practical always outweighs the airy-fairy though.

I don't have access to Netflix Wafaa. If I did I would almost certainly watch and with an open mind. Reply

I sometimes watch the series on Freeview and they have some very strange ideas which are totally stupid but, somehow, seem to be the only plausible explanation at the moment. Reply

If you're interested in this sort of thing Wafaa you should read Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Däniken, it's fascinating. Reply
