On one memorable occasion on the M4 near Bristol, there was a Rolls Royce in the right hand lane of the eastbound carriage way doing about 65 mph, again I moved from the left over to the right, slowed down and followed it for perhaps half a mile, then started flashing the headlights, the car in front then moved over to the middle lane, once past I returned to the left lane and the Rolls Royce to the right, there was little, if any, other traffic in the vicinity at the time.

Wanted to be sure The Americans in The Audience got a Good Read of The Above Statement.

Dull

But... it was a Rolls Royce, Don't Rolls owners automatically get a permanent lease on the right lane along with the car?


No, it's the BMW drivers who seem to acquire this privilege!

Focused upon Orion may be because it was so prominent in the night sky, that would be one logical reason for their interest in it. Shall go youtube hunting for info on the Egyptians and their relationship with Orion.


Loads of goodly stuff to see on Youtube. One programme hosted by Charlton Heston reckons that the Earth's outer solid plate shifted around by 2000 miles thousands of years ago. Putting the lost civilisation of Atlanta plum where Antarctica sits today. Quite clearly one international scientific body needs to be formed here and do unified research regarding all aspects of our planet in hopes that we can un-muddy the waters here regarding what is fact and what is fiction. I wounder if we are heading into what will be known as the "Dark ages of Science" where no valuable discoveries ever get accepted, attributed or correctly classified as to what it is, where it came from and what it's telling us/showing us.

not only were they aligned to Orion, the sizes correspond to the size of the stars on Orions belt

What are we doing to be able to identify intelligence in a signal once we have pulled it up out of the noise? There are too many natural phenomena that produce a strong, constant and alternating signal in frequency and intensity.


Will, would they not send a signal that is totally distinguishable from the surrounding noise. For "they" would be totally aware of the problems other humans on other planets will have in knowing if they have received a signal of intelligent content sent from another planet.

Be sparing with it Uli, it is quite expensive, only need to apply a small amount.

lets also not forget that nasty Galactic drift that moves stars around. After 5000 years nothing really lines up like it should


Skild', I remember watching a documentary about some of the pyramids lining up in such a way that they focused on Orion. They achieved this in this documentary by winding the celestial clock back several thousand years. To me all it proved was that the Egyptians found Orion important enough to focus upon. But as I have said on these threads quite recently the Egyptians like all of us past and present find/found the skies at night an area and topic of great fascination.

To this end you fail to sort the wheat from the chaff because you assume all that you get given in support of your belief, because it supports your belief, must then all be factual.

It is also common for supporters of fringe ideas to accuse others of confirmation bias as the reason for rejecting their ideas.

For that purpose, let's consider the original post from September 30. The OP described an alleged alignment of pyramid shafts with stars and constellations. It makes perfect sense that an ancient alien aficionado would immediately assume that aliens, having of course designed the pyramids, would have arranged for such an alignment, and that vast quantities of unavailable resources should be spent investigating.

However, not even once is considered the fact that the position of the constellations in the sky is non-constant. We know that the ecliptic (the plane formed by the Earth's orbit around the sun) oscillates over time (period depends on your reference point, either 70,000 or 100,000 years) - not to mention the much faster precession and nutation of the equinoxes. This means that an incredibly advanced civilization would have, at best, left an unreliable map, built with the technology of man rather than their own. Considering the level of technology necessary for interstellar travel, they must have known - if they exist/existed - how the Earth moved, and likely how to replicate parts of their own technology on Earth. Why is none of this apparent - if it is aliens who designed the pyramids?

We may all believe what we wish to believe, but nature exists regardless of our convictions. All I ask is that you be honest about the evidence - the wheat and the chaff, as you say. Every time an ancient astronaut support speaks/writes, it's pretty much old Giorgio and his aliens again.


I understand exactly what your saying and your stand-point here. I too find it quite frustrating how people try to ascribe things as proof of alien visitations
when what they have as evidence is no real evidence at all. Personally I don't believe we have been visited by aliens and to this I will also add that I think we are the only intelligent (human type life) in our universe. So like you I keep searching though via Seti for I could be wrong.

Yes, but they ate all their green stars...


Ah well, at least they paid for them though.
