Just how did “primitive” minds react to manifestations of superior technology? Is it possible that, in the ancient past, our ancestors interpreted manifestations of advanced technology as “divine”?
Primitive aborigines in the past believed that American soldiers were deities when they visited them with huge “Metal Birds”, bringing unimaginable gifts.
Is it possible that the same happened in the distant past, thousands of years ago as ancient man interpreted beings from the cosmos as “gods who came from the stars”?
Is it possible to establish behavioural patterns that allow us, by analogy, reach conclusions with an acceptable probability index? Or in other words, how do you judge the reactions of our ancestors against the unusual behavior of potential “exotic” visitors? Are fear and curiosity a pattern that leads towards worship… are these the logical consequences of a primitive mentality overwhelmed by the technological achievements of a superior civilization that visited the planet in the distant past?
Many researchers believe that this is the exact scenario that occurred in the distant past on our planet, when, our ancestors, from all over the world, witnessed the arrival of beings with superior technology, who eventually were called Gods, beings that came from the stars.
This is what the Ancient Astronaut theory postulates, and it is something that thousands of people around the world are convinced that happened when, in the distant past, extraterrestrial visitors came to Earth, emerging as deities and gods due to the unimaginable notion or understanding of our ancestors. Consequently, this so-to-speak, psychological effect, created myths and legends, and even religions which became “poetical” reports that contain fascinating realities. These realities have been ignored, almost completely by mainstream sciences.
