Ancient Aliens

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_aliens

Ancient Aliens is an American television series that premiered on April 20, 2010 on the History channel.[1] Produced by Prometheus Entertainment, the program presents theories of ancient astronauts and proposes that historical texts, archaeology and legends contain evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact.[2][3] The show has been criticized for presenting disputed pseudoscience.

Some reviewers have characterized the show as "far fetched",[15] "hugely speculative",[16] and "...expound[ing] wildly on theories suggesting that astronauts wandered the Earth freely in ancient time."[17] Many of the ideas presented in the show are not accepted by the scientific community, and have been criticized as pseudoscience and pseudohistory.[18] History professor Ronald H. Fritze observed that pseudoscience as offered by von Däniken and the Ancient Aliens program has a periodic popularity in America: "In a pop culture with a short memory and a voracious appetite, aliens and pyramids and lost civilizations are recycled like fashions."[18]

That was until certain Mainstream scientists began to start speaking up and tying things in with the UFO's and other scientifc fact concerning the building of certain structures on this planet.From this wikipedia list we can even go by episodes with the discussion. Also there are video's and all are on the History Channel as well.

Which mainstream scientists and what findings?

I would be curious to see where the most recent discoveries have led. Imagine too if the ruins had not been plundered by vandals, in Egypt for example. Many of those tombs were picked over and desecrated. Perhaps we could have known more about the ancients had it not been so.

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (born March 14, 1978) is a Swiss born Greek writer, television presenter, and proponent of the idea that ancient astronauts interacted with ancient humans.[2] He is the publisher of the magazine, Legendary Times, a publication with articles from researchers such as Erich von Däniken (Chariots of the Gods), David Hatcher Childress, Peter Fiebag, Robert Bauval, and Luc Bürgin, on the topic of ancient astronauts.[3]

Tsoukalos has been the director of Erich von Däniken's Center for Ancient Astronaut Research for over 12 years, and has appeared on The Travel Channel, The History Channel, the Sci-Fi Channel, the National Geographic Channel, as well as Coast to Coast AM, and is a consulting producer of the television series Ancient Aliens.[2]

Tsoukalos is a 1998 graduate of Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York with a degree in sports information and communication.[4] He states that he is multilingual, fluent in English, Greek, German, French and Italian.[2]

He studied sports communication...I wonder how he made the jump. Ithica is a long way from Switzerland. He must have had an interesting life. I wonder if his friends and family have ostracized him for the show or are cool with it.

Well we can start with NASA finding life elsewheres.....or the building blocks of such anyways. These were a bunch of articles put up.

Then we have the Cathoilc Church doing a 180 degree turnaround about life out there.

Then there is the Physicist/Geologist Robert Schock.

I remember about 10 years ago when NASA announced they had discovered life in an meteorite from Mars I think.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_M._Schoch

Robert M. Schoch is an associate professor of Natural Science at the College of General Studies, a 2 year non-degree granting unit of Boston University. He received his Ph.D. in geology and geophysics from Yale in 1983, and is best known for his argument that the Great Sphinx of Giza is much older than conventionally thought and that possibly some kind of catastrophe has wiped out other evidence of a significantly older civilization. In 1991, Schoch redated the famous monument to 7000–5000 BC, based on his assertion that its erosion was due mainly to the effects of water, rather than wind and sand, and also based on seismic studies around the base of the Sphinx and elsewhere on the plateau.....snip~

Schock is a geo-physicist/geologist.....MSM Science not psuedo and then there is Bauval who wrote the Egyptian Code.

The Catholic Church never had a position on alien life. In any case, this is a red herring commonly employed by "Ufologists" and the guy with the crazy hair. The potential for life (intelligent or otherwise) elsewhere in the universe is not evidence that they have made any contact with humanity. It's an entirely different discussion.

We can't agree on everything, MMC. This place would get boring.  :-*

Duh. I'm not sure why I didn't this of this earlier, Conley, but they have it in the "on demand" section of my cable. Do you have something like that?
