Ancient Aliens Debunked

Ancient Aliens Debunked is a 3 hour refutation of the theories proposed on the History Channel series Ancient Aliens. It is essentially a point by point critique of the “ancient astronaut theory” which has been proposed by people like Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin as well as many others.

The film covers topics like:
Ancient building sites: Puma Punku, The Pyramids, Baalbek, Incan sites, And Easter Island. Ancient artifacts: Pacal’s rocket, the Nazca lines, the Tolima “fighter jets”, the Egyptian “light bulb”, Ufo’s in ancient art, and the crystal skulls. Ancient text issues: Ezekiel’s wheel, Ancient nuclear warfare, Vimana’s, the Anunnaki, and the Nephilim.

    I hope we get some looks at the Greek guy on the photo with the wild hair and the store-bought tan – he’s my favorite.

    It’s funny how when people ask questions about mysterious things and promote their ideas of that, right wing religious nut jobs just can’t be open enough to even ask. All they do is try to refute. Trilithon stones of Baalbek. Address that and I’m in. I admit I can’t watch ancient aliens because of their zeal but at least they ask the questions and propose the answer and not tell us god did it and that’s it.

      “Trilithon stones of Baalbek. Address that and I’m in.”
      40minutes in, they address to Trilithon.You should probably should watch the video first next time.

        hahhaaha! word!

      The nut-jobs are the guys promoting the ancient alien theory. They are funny, though. I think I have watched every one of their episodes on Netflix. This was a good counter. As the guy said, how many people can actually check up on the things they state as fact? This was well done.

      No man, they don’t ask questions. They publish books which are read by millions, they doctor results of testing, they lie, fabricate and generally deceive in the name of dollar. It’s called sensationalism. There’s nothing wrong with asking, but there is something wrong with what they are doing. Read Flim Flam.

    …so these were not x-files after all

    If someone does something i can’t do i always assume they are aliens 😉
    most athletes are aliens to me

  • Satan

    oh this is great a christian “debunking” an alien theory, this just be full of laughs :()

  • Polstar

    I can’t explain it … MUST BE ALIENS.

  • Autonymous

    The worst thing about Ancient Aliens documentary is that they actually need to make a debunkversion of it -.-

  • manholecover

    Amazing how EVERYONE follows what they watch and just BELIEVE IT. Just like religion. Some overly tanned afro know it all doesn’t know any more than those who say they were aliens. This is 100% CONJECTURE and CRAP. That’s TV for you.

  • Pythus

    i like how he starts the film with a long pretext in which he assumes we have already been brainwashed by ancient aliens. keep an open mind!

    how did they stretch debunking ancient aliens for three hours, I mean its hardly a difficult theory to rubbish.

    Thank you evangelist Chris White, but no thanks. You have just covered certain areas of Ancient aliens that may be open to speculation. But just like a fool, you have taken 95% reference from Wikipedia material and references and well you became dumb again. Science is open to possibilities. Spirituality and science are imbibed together. Let us do the searching and verifying part and not be tied to your money making schemes. Go hunt some rednecks

    the last part by the way has a version which is different from both your documentary and the one mentioned on AA.
    His father Lamech was afraid of him, and fled, and came to his own father Methuselah. And he said to him: “I have begotten a strange son; he is not like a human being, but resembles the children of the angels of heaven, and his nature is different, and he is not like us, and his eyes are as the rays of the sun, and his countenance is glorious. And it seems to me that he is not sprung from me, but from the angels, and I fear that in his days a wonder may be wrought on the earth. And now, my father, I am here to petition thee and implore thee, that thou mayest go to Enoch, our father, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling place is among the angels.”

    this shows that he was indeed surprised as he did not resemble him at all and resembled exactly like the angels above.

  • http://twitter.com/shamitbanerjee Shamit banerjee

    and enoch told Lamech to call him as his own and did not say that he is his true son.
    And when Methuselah heard the words of his son, he went to Enoch, to the ends of the earth, and he cried aloud, and Enoch heard his voice, and appeared before him, and asked him the reason of his coming. Methuselah told him the cause of his anxiety, and requested him to make the truth known to him. Enoch answered, and said: “The Lord will do a new thing in the earth. There will come a great destruction on the earth, and a deluge for one year. This son who is born unto thee will be left on the earth, and his three children will be saved with him, when all mankind that are on the earth shall die. And there will be a great punishment on the earth, and the earth will be cleansed from all impurity. And now make known to thy son Lamech that he who was born is in truth his son, and call his name Noah, for he will be left to you, and he and his children will be saved from the destruction which will come upon the earth.”Nice try Douchebag

  • Unknown

    I put it this way who can trully explain what happen

    Thousands of years ago no one because none of us were here so how can you possible say that you debunked a subject if you weren’t born yet so the only thing you have to go on is science and folklore or Religion when you look at all cultures in history you here strang stories you see many ghost stories and stories of vampires and such and theses stories have been told all over the world in different cultures and you have to say hey there must be some realism to at least some of it so my next question is ,is it impossible to say aliens created humans no reason of being look at biotechnology and you say that its very possible in fact whats stoping humans from doing it to another planet in the future.

    • frank

      watched this and it “debunks” nothing. Would have been a waste of time but partially interesting watching a christian (who believes in a space god) try his best to “debunk” a theory based on space gods. Wow. So much of the information in this is as, or more speculative than the information in ancient aliens.

    • pwndecaf

      Ad ignorantiam
      The argument from ignorance basically states that a specific belief is true because we don’t know that it isn’t true。Or it could be the “you weren’t there so how can you know” premise.

  • Steve

    To all those that believed in the anchiant alians……..PM me have I got a deal for you!

  • what the?

    Why is everyone saying granite, granite, granite in this doco… the only one not saying granite is the guy “debunking” them… a microscope is definitely not needed to make a differentiation between sandstone and granite… for the matter that they cant event tell what form of stone it is, how the hell did they come to estimates for how much it weighs? I assume they based the density of the rock (which no one apparently cant decide on) and the proportion to get an estimate? Its quite possible i’m wrong, but i find it difficult to believe that the complexity of the architecture matches the complexity of the labor techniques… ive worked in sand stone quarries before and to be told that they made those blocks like that by banging the shit out of the with other rocks and not having them have serious stress fractures i find to be ridiculous… I also might have missed it, but did they find any of the metal tools that were “possibly” made?

  • awful_truth

    They do bring up some valid points, but some of their arguments are just as weak. (arbitrary)I guess let the public decide for themselves,.

  • AgentAnslinger

    i hope this quells my urge to throw things at the “History” channel

  • dinmamma

    bunch of bullshit

  • The Aquarian Male

    They are not aliens that visited the earth it was “Lucifer” decieving men to worship him as god. Osiris and his sister, Isis, gave in to him bore a son named Horus. They where rewarded the three eternal cities, “the three great Pyramids,” the birthplace of the “Illuminati.” Satan called himself “the sun god Ra,” which is the same sun god as the Myans & Aztecs. Satan controls all kingdoms that ever exsisted here on Earth. Teaching man how to build and structure, Massonry, landmarks to become gods themselves. All they had to do was denounce the one true God and submit to him as god. Now a third of the acients have returned after Lucifer was cast down out of Heaven. He crashed in Rosswell, NM. as the Bible predicted people will see him when he was cast down. Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth for the accuser of the world is amongst them. the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he don’t excist. Look at everthing what’s going on now and do the math. The celestial beings in the high Heavens warned us about his arrival in our time and the coming of ages. It is all going down now as we speak.

  • Rene Martinez

    Someone trying to debunk ancient aliens while believing in a God of the bible has no leg to stand on. I don’t believe that ancient aliens built these ancient structures like I don’t believe some biblical god is in charge, I see absolutely no difference.

  • Sean

    ok, but this kind of pisses me off how they can do this point by point documentary off of theories. like yes the ancient astronauts theorist dont know wtf they’re talking about, but it doesnt mean they wernt on to something. the theory does indeed work if you use the proper evidence, without making assumptions.. it acctually fits better than what archaeologists think they know today. i’ve done my own research and acctually read the bible back to front, and i can tell you, there is no way in hell that we evolved on earth naturally. it definetly had some outer influence.

    • Weebles Wobbles

      You have obviously done no research or are terribly misinformed as to the definitions of both ‘research’, and ‘evolved’. What ‘proper evidence’ might you be referring to? Because all the proper evidence is on the side of the academics and trained professionals who’ve done the necessary scientific inquiry and study. People like Rodin Dunbar and Richard Dawkins and David C. Queller. The ‘theory’, a term you employ but which I don’t think you comprehend, you refer to does not do the job a scientific theory is supposed to do, i.e., there is no evidence to support the notion that life on this planet came from anywhere but this planet, and there is no need to insert an external agent for either its inception or its evolution. Grow up and do some real learning.

    The whole “ancient alien” thing is indeed a bunch of bunk and has a lot of stupid people who lack discernment fooled. First of all, many of these theories use the bible to justify their myths. The bible is itself a book of mythology and is full of bunk. Bunksters using Bunk to create more bunk. The physical laws of the Universe do not allow intermingling of planetary cultures and creatures. The nearest star to Earth is Alpha Centuri and is 4.3 light years away. It would take 75,000 years traveling at 100,000 mph to reach it. It is impossible to breach the speed of light or to even approach it. If aliens are or have been visiting Earth, they are not traveling through the physical Universe….it is impossible.

  • S.Kora144

    Why do people still believe todays bible!! i’d rather believe Ancient Aliens than some book reformed by the Council of Nicea and Constantine and his Roman money hungry fucktards all for Political gain.. Don’t tell me I need to do research! I am Maori from New Zealand and our myths and legends (similar to all indeginous races eg. Native American Indians, Pacific Islanders, Indians(punjabi) even Mayans) are based around what we call today, scientific knowledge. We have the legend of Te Kore (nothingness but with potential) which is the Big Bang, Slowing the sun down (as one earth year way back in the day used to be 288 days) 12 Heavens (12 densities), Rangi(sky god) and Papatuanuku (earth mother) and all demi gods between (making of a planet and the birth of its atmosphere) right down to Tane Mahuta (God of the Forest) and the breath of life (trees expending oxygen and the birth of man) we were also visited from Tipua (aliens, e.t, watever you wana call them) and so were the Dogon Tribe, and so were the Native Indians for centuries more than we have.. how do think we knew all this scientific stuff when we were “primitive” people.. stuff scientists didn’t prove or discover until recently (now and 100 yrs or so back)and some of our “auspicious” numbers actually match with Harmonics of the Speed of Light.. Ancient Aliens asks alot of these type of questions.. The problem with listening to anyone from a church body is The Church is the be ALL and end ALL.. There is nothing else correct.. EVER!! and its ALL on faith.. WOW FAITH!!! Our indeginous myths actually back up Ancient Aliens.. So “debunking” AA is utter rubbish! He should be debunking the “New Testament” and ask real questions (the Pope is).. instead of running a church business and tryna sway people from the truth to keep the money pouring into the church.MAKES ME SICK!!! Ancient Aliens ALL day BOOOY!!!

    This man’s personal beliefs are irrelevant to the arguments he is making in this video. If you think otherwise, you never learned how to think properly.

    Ancient Aliens is foundational programming for a new world religion that will be simply accepted as fact by the indoctrinated at some time in the future, as current religious doctrines are simply accepted as fact by the indoctrinated today.
