The ancient alien theory (ancient astronaut theory) presupposes that hundreds of thousands of years ago, advanced alien beings visited Earth. Providing us with the necessary technology, they helped our civilization progress through the ages.
Proponents of this theory argue that this ‘alien contact’ greatly influenced the development of ancient as well as modern cultures, technologies, and religions, as well as human biology.
And in the last couple of years, the ancient astronaut theory has given a lot to talk about.
One of their main proponents is Erich Von Daniken, a talented writer, and researcher from Switzerland, and one of the main experts in History Channel Ancient Alien Series.
Both Von Daniken and Giorgio Tsoukalos, as well as a plethora of other researchers and authors who have taken the ancient astronaut theory to a level where it no longer can be defined as a conspiracy theory, but something worth researching and studying further.
If you wish, it’s a modern religion.
In the past, Von Daniken has claimed that aliens have visited our planet many times in the past and may return and actively monitor us.
Now, during the UFO Summit 2018 conference in Brazil Erich von Daniken and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos have spoken out about aliens and when they may return with Russian news agency Sputnik.
As noted by Tsoukalos, extraterrestrial beings visiting Earth will not attempt and make official contact until humans achieve something first. By that, Tsoukalos referred to Earth’s society and the way we behave with one another. From country to Country, neighbor to neighbor.
“In my opinion, it is that we, as a society, we need to become friendlier with each other. We really need to start looking at ourselves and say, you know, we are all brothers and sisters on this planet, we really are. And it is up to us to clean up our house, here on Earth. And I think then after we cleaned up our mess, that’s when they will make contact,” Tsoukalos explained to Sputnik.
His opinion was shared by Von Daniken who believes that the aliens who have actively visited our planet in the past have promised to return in the near future, and some of them may already be here.
“Now, what can we learn from that? We have to learn to become humble. We are not unique. We are not the crown of creation, neither the top of evolution. We are just one of the millions of species in outer space. They will come back. They will teach us again,” Von Daniken claimed.
Von Daniken also said that many suspected UFO sightings are evidence that ‘there is something around this planet which is observing us, perhaps studying our languages, weapons, our religions, and political systems.’
“They are watching us,” he concluded.
And the truth is that UFO sightings have been on the rise in recent years.
Most importantly, worldwide government have finally admitted that through the years, they have actively monitored inexplicable sightings in the sky.
The best example of that is the AATIP, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program which was a secret investigatory effort funded by the United States Government to study unidentified flying objects.
It is noteworthy to mention that the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program has yielded a currently publicly unissued 490-page report that documents worldwide UFO sightings over several decades.
