Before I even begin, I would like to point out that I do not ACTUALLY believe the ancient astronaut theory. However, I think that this would be a fun debate to try out.

The BOP will be on me for this debate to prove that what has been dismissed as "coincidences" or "human intelligence" is actually artifacts and knowledge given to us by aliens. The opposition will only have a BOD.

R1 Acceptance
R2 -3 Arguments
R4 LESS THAN 1000 CHARACTER conclusion, no new arguments may be presented

Definitions:

Ancient Astronaut Theory - the belief that aliens have visited Earth before and have given us knowledge, artifacts, etc.

Aliens - extraterrestrials that didn't originate on Earth

I look forward to an exciting debate!

Throughout history there is clear examples that Aliens have visited Earth before. These examples cannot be simply written off as “coincidence” or “human intelligence.”

C1: The Nazca Lines

Located in Peru’s Nazca desert, there are thousands of lines that measure more than hundreds of feet. Standing on Earth, the lines seem to make no pattern. However, when you fly over Nazca you see that all the lines actually make animal shapes.

Now, why would ancient Peruvians want to make patterns that can only be seen from the sky? Furthermore, the mountain tops in the Nazca desert have actually been paved smooth. When you look at it from the sky, it looks exactly like a runway. Why would the Peruvians want to smooth out a mountain? Furthermore, where did the rubble go? They destroyed the top of mountains, yet there is no rubble. These are only some of the mysterious that surround the lines at Nazca. Clearly, the lines and the runway were designed for something that flew, yet in the ancient times nothing could fly.





C2: The Pyramids of Giza and Teotihuacan

The grand pyramid of Giza was one of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Yet there are many oddities with the pyramid. Firstly, the Pyramid of Giza is EXACTLY at the intersection of the equator and the prime meridian, longitude and latitude. Furthermore, all four sides of the pyramids face exactly in cardinal North, South, East, and West, though compasses did not exist in Egypt at the time. Coincidence?

It is described that the Pyramid of Giza was built in 10 – 20 years. [1] Furthermore, the stones that compose the pyramids each weigh roughly two tons and over 2.3 million stones were used. [2] How could humans possibly lift two ton blocks? Yet the pyramids is an engineering marvel and it is estimated that if we were to recreate the pyramids today we would take decades to recreate it. How is it possible that ancient civilizations built the pyramids in 20 years, dragging over 2.3 million two ton blocks for MILES?? Clearly, all the anomalies with the pyramids show that aliens have given us some form of knowledge and technology to help us build the pyramids.

Furthermore, the sun pyramid in Teotihuacan, on the opposite side of the globe share similar anomalies. The sun pyramid has almost the exact same perimeter of the great pyramid of giza [3]. Also, there are three great pyramids that are aligned in a line. There are two pyramids (sun and moon) in Teotihuacan that are aligned in the same degree if there was a third pyramid between the two. Plus, each side of the sun and moon pyramids are aligned to a planet in the solar system. Coincidence? I don’t think so.





C3: References in Writing

In the bible, the book of Ezekiel clearly describes Ezekiel meeting the “gods” that came to him in flying metal machines spewing fire, smoke, and emitting loud noises. Ezekiel is taken by the gods and given knowledge, such as writing. Is it possible that the “gods” were actually spaceships from space?

Furthermore, Pacal’s sarcophagus in Palenque clearly depict Pacal “descending” to the underworld. However, it actually looks like he is in a spaceship. He is sitting in a seat, a mouthpiece in his mouth, his hands fiddling with controls, and an engine behind him. It looks strikingly similar to modern spaceships.




The Sanskrit epics which were in India describe mythical flying machines called vimanas. Something was on the vimanas and these vimanas frequently engaged in pitched battles in the sky.

But the most striking written evidence is the Mayans. Where did they mayans get all their advanced astronomical and mathematical knowledge? Their calendar was so mathematically correct that it ends on the exact same day that the centre of the galaxy, the sun, and the earth align (December 21, 2012). Furthermore, they backdated their calenders to the BCE’s, to the exact day that archaeologists believe that a major cataclysmic event occurred. Their knowledge of astronomy was unparalleled, and they tracked all the planets and stars. But where did this knowledge come from? It’s amazing that an ancient civilization could have this knowledge. The Mayan Popol Vuh says “Men came from the stars, knowing everything, and they examined the four corners of the sky and Earth’s round surface.” How did the Mayans know the Earth was round? Furthermore, the Chilam Balam states “Beings descended from the sky in flying vessels...white men in flying rings, who can touch the sky.” [4]

Clearly, all these “coincidences” cannot be dismissed. How many are coincidences? The odds are against us. Ancient humans couldn’t possibly have been this intelligent with knowledge that we have only recently discovered. Clearly, they were given knowledge and tools by aliens. I look forward to my opponent’s responses!
