Thanks, boo. Although I must remind the group yet again, that photo is not me! I don't look that good.

And on the subject of my new Moderator status, just so you know, I paid a hell of a lot of money for that!

That's not true. Really. :lol:

LOL  :lol:

Well I'm glad someone is willing to do that moderation work.  Couldn't pay me enough to do it!  For God's sake, I'd have to be sober most of the time!  No no no!  :no:   Not for me!  :P

Hey, I'm a new Mod here but I've been one at another site for years now and have served the role in a couple of other forums. This is to say, it's not a new experience for me, so I know of what I speak: who says we Mods have to be sober most of the time? Posted Image

Well if I may say so, Saru made good choices with you and The Sky Scanner in this regard.  :tu:

I look forward to being admonished by such fine fellows as yourselves when I cross the line.

I buy that just as readily as I buy your claim that you paid to be a moderator.

Which is to say, not at all.

But I'd bet that ancient aliens probably had something to do with these appointment events.  They are probably somehow in relation to the Mayan calendar, the Galactic convergence, and of course the Crystal Skulls...

:P

I fully expect you to put me in my place if and when I'm deserving. :tu:

Can ancient aliens (the creature not the show) be debunked?  Well since you can't prove a negative and there is no evidence to support ancient aliens visiting the Earth then I would have to say no they can't be debunked.  However, once any kind of actual as opposed to perceived evidence does appear then we can give it a shot.

There comes a point when your continued requests for proof - to debunk ancient aliens - becomes unreasonable.

For all intents and purposes, you can be certain that alien entities have not travelled, under their own power and will, to visit us.

actually, that "sail off the world" business was a fabrication iirc by an American post-revolutonary war, everyonee knew the world was round they had Erosthenses' proof of it courtesy of the Muslims after all. It was finding anouther route to India they all scoffed at - rightly so as you'd hit Vietnam and Korea before you hit India if not missing it altogether and hitting Africa going the route Columbo proposed.

I don't know if I can be bothered to watch the OP video (it's very long)...but when I saw it was by Chris White I remembered that I had read about him

somewhere and that he was some kind of evangelical christian.  Evidence is evidence and it is the interpretation of

evidence that varies. According to motive...?


Well Chris White is a very busy bee :)......debunking this that and the other...lol....and running his ministries...

this is his YouTube channel...

What we believe


1. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
2. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible Word of God and inerrant in the original languages.
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory.
4. We believe that the lost and sinful (all people) must be saved, and that the only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved, that they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and that are unsaved unto the resurrection of Judgment.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We hold to the continuance today of the diversities of spiritual gifts as found in 1 Corinthians 12. Simplicity in church government rather than a complex bureaucracy. A dependence upon the Holy Spirit to lead, rather than fleshly promotion. The pre-millenial return of Christ for His waiting church. The teaching of the Word of God in such a way that it can be applied to life as beneficial towards a growing spiritual maturity.

Interesting.
Obviously his motivation for debunking Ancient Aliens.

that's what I'm thinking.....

and surely one man can't be doing all this on his own...he must have a whole team  working (full time?) on it all...

I can't believe the negativity and complete close mindedness of many of the posters replying in this topic. :no:  I was going to watch the video posted supposedly debunking ancient aliens, but when I saw how long it was AND that it was probably funded and produced by a religious group, I said forget it.

May I ask how many of the posters in this topic believe in god and if you do, please let me know.  If you have posted here criticizing the theories about ancient aliens and you're a believer in god, then you are putting your faith in something that has no definitive proof of existing as well.

I've been looking further into the debunking "facts" presented in the video....some of them anyway.
Some of what is stated in a factual manner, are theories still unproven.

Closed mindedness, would be blindly accepting the theories put forth by AA or by the Egyptian archeologists.  Openmindedness, is asking questions.  That's what we are doing
Just watch the segment on "The Pyramids".  I think it's only about 15 mins.
It was only posted this morning that Chris White ran a religious group.  I replied that it may be his motivation for debunking the AA series, because it promotes the idea of alien visitation.  It doesn't mean that what he says must be true, nor is it an indication that what he is saying is false.
The video is still interesting, but the facts are presented in a "don't ask questions, just believe this" manner, which has prompted me to spend time doing my own research.

Whether or not members believe in God, has absolutely nothing to do with debunking AA or whether or not ET species exist and may have influenced ancient architecture.
