Why do ancient civilizations and religions have so much in common? Even on different continents that had no connection to each other? And how did they have knowledge of celestial bodies that are not visible from Earth without a telescope? Were religion, astronomy, architechture, and alchemy taught to the ancients by the anunnaki?
What about the Nazca lines aka runways? And the airplane statues? So many questions with no answer that makes sense... unless the anunnaki are factored in, then all of the answers become clear. How else would the pyramids have been built? And why else would people all across the world have revered the pyramid shape and worshipped very similar gods, having very similar beliefs of the afterlife and all believing in dragons?
Part of me believes it's human nature. It's just simply not impossible for this occur, despite these civilizations being so far apart and isolated from one another. I think it's all a part of man seeking to explain the world around him. That's why religion is almost inevitable, why pure invention truly doesn't exist either because not only do we share the same brains(despite efforts to individualize sects of people) but inventions proceeds necessity. And the necessity of man throughout history has been nearly all the same despite cultural differences.
There's simply too many variables to take into account that have a true and lasting impact.
I honestly think "aliens" is a far too simple cop-out.
A rudimentary knowledge of physics tells you that the pyramid is the most stable simple structure that can be built on a massive scale. That's why it's so popular. If stone-age cultures all over the world were building upside-down pyramids then maybe I'd be impressed.
Give me an example, please, where things influencing a cultural or society is truly simple. There are many factors that influenced a society.
Honestly? Aliens are the equivalent of saying God created everything. Or when asked a question just replying "just cause". It's easy and "simple" to blame aliens because we can totally fabricate them to fit and explain things we don't understand. So that whenever we archeologically find something we use "aliens" as a backdrop for things we don't understand. Just man has used God and religion to explain the world for thousands of years.
My friend it's a cop-out.
As a note: I don't claim to understand it all. There's too many variables in a time too far a way from my current understanding of the world. I was only sharing a view and opinion.
I respect your stance and I understand your reasoning, but I also think that aliens are a plausible solution. There is compelling evidence for the alien theory, but certainly not hard proof.
They all lived in the same world, and as such had very similar experiences. Trees exist everywhere. Birds exist everywhere. Every culture could see the stars in the sky. The things that spawned myth and culture is mostly the same everywhere, and this naturally leads to some similarities between isolated cultures.
Physics doesn't change no matter what continent you're on, so saying things like "why did different cultures build pyramids" is just retarded.
Don't assume that people who lived in the past were so stupid they couldn't work out the most basic structural principles of architecture.
For every similarity between the religion and myths between separate cultures, their are dozens of differences. By only looking a the similarities between myths but ignoring or disregarding the staggering differences, you're intentionally excluding data that doesn't support your theory, which is a text book case of confirmation bias.

This thread seriously belongs on /x/
It's a fucking discredit to our species that people earnestly believe that the Great Pyramids would have been impossible to build with out the help of ayylmaos.
Because they didn't try because it would be a huge waste of resources. If for some absurd reason we decided that building massive pyramids was a good idea we could probably build one twice as big as the pyramid of Giza.
If we could build the hoover dam I'm pretty sure we can make a simple pyramid.
What is the premise? Isn't it that aliens came and helped give the ancients knowledge and the ancient people eventually mythologized them as gods? What else is there to understand? What am I missing here?
Says fucking who? I always see these ancient aliens people saying "hurr it fits better than modern tech durr!!" And they just expect you to take it as fact. Where are the measurements? Where arethe citations? Flushness and space between blocks are things that can be quantified so this should be easy to prove, yet they never elaborate on this point.
This is great until he gets to the global flood that didn't happen.
Can we stop pretending we can't make pyramids today? No one has tried and failed, they just didn't know how the ancients did it. Well we didn't, but the internal ramp theory is shaping up to be pretty accurate.
They don't elaborate because if you really want to see the proof you'll look up the statistics yourself. No matter what sources I claim to get my numbers from, you won't believe me without researching it yourself.
>People couldn't replicate them even with 21st century technology, dumbass.
Literal bullshit. The reason we don't build stone pyramids today isn't because stacking blocks is difficult, it's because we're too advanced to waste time and resources on something so primitive.
>requires a ridiculously expensive amount of limestone (or other stone)
>shit height vs width ratio
>almost no interior space
Even if we wanted to build a pyramid, we would use interior framing and other more advanced techniques instead of stacking a stupid amount of blocks like they were fucking lego's.
With our modern understand of physics, North Korea managed to build a pyramid over twice the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza. North Korea is a poor, starving, backwards communist hellhole, and even they managed to build bigger and smarter than the ancient Egyptians. Competing our modern society with one from thousands of years ago is completely retarded, and not because they were more advanced than we are now.
Besides, I don't know why people wank off to pyramids do much when arches are the GOAT ancient architectural style.
Well that's the thing, he lists all his sources.
Everything explaining the internal ramp theory is actually real i.e. it is published. He doesn't really add anything to what he presents, except that he relates it back to the specific claims of Ancient Aliens.
>Is the idea of aliens potentially influencing the ancient past altogether thrown out?
Very correct anon, but now you have to support the claim of alien intervention.
Also I realize I posted a 3 hour video, but I was talking about explaining how the pyramids got built. I wasn't saying I proved aliens couldn't have ever contacted ancient humans, that claim would be very foolish of me.
