SubBass49: and the artistic representation of the DNA double-helix by "primitive" peoples in various parts of the world

It was probably just an instruction manual on how to make rope. If you don't have naturally long fibers to work with, you need to twist the yarn to make long rope. Rope is a fundamental tool in a pre-oil, pre-cheap metal civilization.

Smackledorfer: Linkster: SubBass49: blacksharpiemarker: It's interesting to see this peculiar tradition in various ancient cultures the world over...

Yeah...between the elongated skull-shaping, the depictions of "ancient astronauts," and the artistic representation of the DNA double-helix by "primitive" peoples in various parts of the world, there definitely seems to be a bit of weight to the idea that a VERY long time ago, we were visited by an advanced species. I'm sure to someone who has yet to invent the engine, a ship coming out of the sky would have you looking up to a group of visitors and wanting to replicate them as much as possible.

It does seem plausible doesn't it.

Not really, no.


What about when humans worship other humans, because of the technology they possess? Cargo Cult

It's been several years since I read The Cosmic Serpent - DNA and the Origins of Knowledge by Jeremy Narby, but I believe I recall striking similarities between the artistic representations of what appear to be the DNA double-helix among ayahuasca-using tribes in the Amazon and (I want to say) certain aboriginal artworks in Australia. Gotta run and get ready for work, otherwise I'd spend some time digging around the interwebs to find the exact stuff for ya.

BTW...The Cosmic Serpent is a great read and goes well with Just about anything by Wade Davis.

Agreed. If you really think about it, this theory is way more logical than gods, and angels, devils, etc. the fact that every civilization from the dawn of time has worshipped similar beings that come from the sky is remarkable.

What about it?

And fark off with the old troll bullshiat of presenting the barest mention of something and expecting me to make your argument for you, then argue with myself in order to refute it, and leave you open to a one-liner follow-up of "that's not what I meant, blah blah" while presenting another example in lieu of discussion. Pet Peeve of mine around here.

You claim, or at least your response to the claim, is that it isn't plausible for humans to worship technologically advanced beings, because we want to imitate them.

Yet, I provide instances (or really a link to the phenomena, because it's so farking widespread there's a term dedicated to it) to the exact thing we're talking about actually happening in the modern era. I don't believe I claimed that people were emulating aliens at any point in my single sentence and in fact I was trying to make a point about humans imitating humans. As in, "could the pointy headed people have been imitating a more technologically advance civilization of humans that they had minor interactions with, such as happened with the [documented instances I provided[ for the past 140 years or so."

No, the claim is that it isn't plausible that aliens landed on earth and that skull-binding and similarities in art progression are evidence thereof.

I wonder why you specificially removed the bit about aliens in the claim I dismiss? Oh wait, I know why:

I didn't even RESPOND directly to your argument (because you never made one) and you still played the "that isn't what I was talking about" card.

I wasn't trolling. I said explicitly, what about humans worshiping humans. Sorry if I wasn't clear.
I can see why you think I was supporting his claim about visiting alien species, but in my single sentence I did mention that it was an exclusively terrestrial relationship I was discussing.

To which I had replied "what about it" because I didn't want to have to guess about what you were saying.

I guess you just meant it in a 'hey look at that cloud' way. So I guess my response is "neato".
