Throughout history the two most prominent methods for controlling the human population have been religion and finance. Could these well-honed, time-tested control mechanisms be of extraterrestrial origin?

Early humans, seeing the beauty and symmetry in nature, instinctively knew that some guiding force lay behind the order of life and so they developed a reverence for spiritual matters. Over time, however, and with advances in scientific knowledge, the material trappings and theologies of the various religions should have fallen away. But they haven’t. Today, most of the world’s population continues to follow one religion or another, often leading to conflicts, wars, and genocide. Moreover, most large, organized religions are intertwined with the acquisition of money.… Read the rest

Jason Colavito Parodies Lovecraft And Ancient Aliens In ‘Cthulhu in World Mythology’

CiWMYou may already know Jason Colavito for his book The Cult of Alien Gods: H.P. Lovecraft and Extraterrestrial Pop Culture, a skeptical look at the influence of the Cthulhu mythos on the development of ancient alien theories. (“…as some ancient alien theorists believe.” – Seriously. Take a shot every time they say that on the series. You’ll be stone drunk in 20 minutes.)

Via Suvudu:

Jason Colavito’s Cthulhu in World Mythology is a what-if work of speculative history that proposes that H.P. Lovecraft’s ancient god Cthulhu is real, and that humanity has worshiped him since the dawn of time.

Colavito discussed the surprising inspiration behind his book and the intersection between real-world mythology and Lovecraft’s mythos.

Get Cthulhu in World Mythology from Atomic Overmind Press: The eBook will be available late January and the print edition in February.

Tell me about Cthulhu in World Mythology. What’s it all about?

Win Tickets to the Paradigm Symposium!

Paradigm Symposium speakers are seasoned researchers, scientists, egyptologists, archaeologists, critical thinkers, and authors who work to bridge the gap between the academic/scientific schools of thought and the more alternative theories that expose and reveal a different take on how we got here and why we did the things we did in our ancient past.

Evidence of the Gods – Islands in the Pacific

Ancient humans had the natural urge to document the world in which they lived, a fact that is evident in the cave paintings from various sites around the world that all seem to depict the same things. Did the peoples of the prehistoric world have contact with each other? Is it possible that some were transported to far-flung locations in what our ancestors could only have described as “flying chariots”? Here is an excerpt from Erich von Däniken’s latest book, Evidence of the Gods: A Visual Tour of Alien Influence in the Ancient World.

Boulders on the Beach

North of Dunedin in New Zealand, there are about 100 spherical boulders lying on Moeraki Beach. The largest has a diameter of 3.16 meters. These giant geodes are literally flushed out of the rock, roll a few meters, come to a halt, and are then washed over by the daily tides. Many have broken apart, crumbling away as the result of the action of wind and waves.… Read the rest

Enter the Uncanny Valley with Animated Giorgio Tsoukalos

There's already something endearingly cartoon-like about Ancient Aliens star Giorgio Tsoukalos: his hair alone has launched a thousand memes, to say nothing of some of his Cosmic Love God fashion sense and compulsive quotability. (To his great credit, Giorgio is very much aware of his internet-fame and has a wonderful attitude about it. When I met him two separate kids approached and asked if he "was the guy from the memes." Giorgio responded with a friendly smile and struck this pose long enough for each of them to snap a photo.) Well, anyway, now Tsoukalos isn't just cartoon-like, thanks to the efforts of one animator. Check out this (admittedly creepy) animated take on Giorgio. (It seems to be a one-off effort, but I wouldn't mind seeing a Tsoukalos & Pals cartoon in my local television listings....)

Debunker Takes on ‘Ancient Aliens’ in New Video

I always kind of liked the "Gods from Outer Space" mythology propagated by writers like Erich Von Daniken and Zecharia Sitchen: it's a perfect hybrid of science and religion, a wondrous answer to our deepest existential quandaries. It's not necessarily comforting, mind you, but it's relief to think that we're not alone and that we're here for a reason. Of course, if that reason is to serve as meat-slaves to Zeta Reticulans, then we've got an entirely new problem. However, liking the mythology doesn't mean I necessarily believe it. I think it's possible that we've been visited by intelligent non-human entities from space (or time, or some other dimension), but for a scoffer like me, the old adage "seeing is believing" holds true. I've just not seen any compelling evidence. (I'd certainly like to, though.) I'm not really in the debunking business (whatever gets you through the night, brother), but this video targeted at the Ancient Aliens television program is pretty compelling. Be warned, though: it's pretty long.

Cargo Cults And Ancient Astronauts

[disinformation ed.'s note: The following is the foreword from the new book by Erich von Däniken, Twilight of the Gods: The Mayan Calendar and the Return of the Extraterrestrials, courtesy of New Page Books.]

What is a “cargo cult”? The term refers to the real-life ethnological phenomenon of what happens when a technologically primitive society comes in contact with a technologically more advanced society. On countless documented occasions, ethnologists have observed that if technologically advanced visitors live among technologicallynot intellectually! – primitive cultures for short periods of time and then leave, soon thereafter, the visitors’ advanced nuts-and-bolts technologies causes the native population to view these rather ordinary humans as gods and begin to worship them. On many occasions during their stay, the visitors would interact with the native population, giving them goods and food – cargo! After the departure of these “gods,” the native culture surmised that they would return if they practiced intense worship, sacrifice and emulation.… Read the rest
