It's this show about how all of the religions in the world were speaking metaphorically about how God/s were actually extraterrestrial beings that have enslaved the human civilization, and have manipulated our genome "in their image". I'm not sure what to make of this... check this out:
What do you think???
I don't see any reason to assume that the ancient Egyptians could not have built the pyramids. What is the basis for this claim? We accept that the ancient Greeks built the Parthenon and other masterpieces of architecture and engineering, right? Sure, it's difficult to move large blocks of stone. It remains difficult. It is also not impossible. Why do people find it so mind boggling? Throughout history people have been building memorials to the dead. In Egypt's case they built pyramids. Why is this so hard to accept? I just see no reason at all to conclude that there was some extra-terrestrial help.
We don't know why the Nazca lines were built. However I find no need to ascribe supernatual or alien involvement. People have been making art for time immemorial. Much of it I don't understand, to this day, like Christo's orange gates or a shark encased in formaldehyde. I also don't know why my parents thought it would look good to put wood paneling and shag carpeting throughout their house in the 70's, and frankly when you ask them now they don't know either. Maybe aliens made them do it?
Very well said. Unfortunately, I think this strongly applies to the ability of creationists to keep refuting reality. Although these shows are about aliens, the propagate the view that science is a huge ship with nobody at the helm - with huge, unyielding inertia unchecked by any watchful eyes. If your entire education came from one of these shows you would think that archeologists literally destroy artifacts that they don't understand and science is riddled with mysteries that terrify most researchers.
I do find those shows incredibly entertaining - but I guess they really do have a dark side.
I did not know that anyone watched CBC except for Republic of Doyle. lol
but yeah, Most of History's programming has nothing to do with history and is often geared toward these stupid new documentary shows and stuff about the end of the world.
