If you’re familiar with the History Channel series Ancient Aliens, then you might be familiar with the hypothesis that what humans of old knew as “Gods” were in fact extra-terrestrial beings. But is such a hypothesis plausible, and is there evidence to prove it?
The documentary film Ancient Astronauts: The Gods From Planet X Volume 2 tackles the so-called Ancient Astronaut Theory and the supposed proof for the notion. The theory claims that during the early years of human civilisation, extra-terrestrial beings with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth and shared their technological know-how with our ancestors.
Ancient astronaut theorists point to several bits of evidence that support their hypothesis. One such instance involves humankind’s abrupt “jump” from being hunter-gatherers to pyramid-builders around 5,000 years ago. One such people, the Sumerians, claimed to have been visited by beings they called the “Annunaki”, beings which they revered as gods. Other supposed pieces of evidence include ancient architectural marvels like the Great Pyramid of Giza or the Stonehenge, structures that have lasted for thousands of years which would’ve been technically impossible for ancient people to build with primitive tools.
Still, everything is up to speculation. If you’re looking to watch movies online for free while veering away from the over-commercialised films popular today while putting your thinking cap on at the same time, then Ancient Astronauts: The Gods From Planet X Volume 2 is a good title to feast your eyes and mind on.
