Mr. Fuzzypaws: That show is WAY BETTER than any of that "reality" sh*t you f*cks drool over.


And only slightly less connected to reality.

For all you Farker hating on Ancient Aliens -- your TV sets do have an OFF switch. Or, you could just change the channel. Why these self-evident truths never seem to occur you is a mystery Phiip Coppens won't be around to speculate on. But hey, the rest of us can have fun with it. My guess is, it gives you a false sense of mental superiority, which you rush to display on the intellectual platform known as Fark.com -- cause Goddess knows, this is where all the geniuses hang out.

/just got out of the hospital the day before he died; have to go back soon.

As goofy as the "experts" on Ancient Aliens are, they are far and away more normal than the bulk of the authors out there who write on the subject.  To Coppens credit - he did very good work and never went over the cliff on saying "aliens invented everything!"  He really did take the long view and the show didn't do his writing any justice.  Of course, the show isn't long enough to really take the time to explore their subject matter and thus it rushes to false conclusions for the sake of ratings.

Bottom line - if you think the guys on that show are weird, don't find yourself in Roswell, NM in early July.

Deep Contact: The ancients were a lot smarter than us.
How the hell did they move these stones and make them fit so tight?

You could ask the Spanish dudes who watched people building shiat like that.

If you listen to the narrator, everything he says is prefaced with "what if?"

Out of the experts* used, only a couple seem crazy enough to take the AA scenario completely seriously. You can tell who's there just to make a paycheck and knows the difference between "yes", "no", and "maybe."

Occams Razor suggest that in a universe this big (stretches hands very wide), of course aliens exist, and I have no trouble believing that all all.

Where I run into problems is any suggestion that such aliens have developed interstellar travel, let alone that they exist contemporaneously and in a sufficiently small volume of space that they could reach our planet in less than a thousand years.

My prediction: aliens *probably* exist, but we will never see any direct or indirect evidence, and neither will any other aliens learn about the existence of us (or their other neighbors.)

This is a big, scary, lonely universe, and we just have the one planet, so we'd better learn to get along and take care of it.

CruJones: I love Ancient Aliens, simply for the sheer ridiculousness. I wish the MST3K guys were watching. It's also fun to google the "experts" and see their nut job websites.

I know it's bullshiat. I don't care.


Makes me miss the X-Files and Mulder's rambles.

Trust me, I hate reality TV as much as the next sane person. However, I'm going to have to disagree and say that Ancient Aliens is worse. Why? Because people actually start to believe this crap and then they try and act like they are experts because they watch this show. I swear to Alien Jesus if I have to hear one more person try and discuss aliens as a serious answer to something that historians have a pretty good grasp on, I'm going to skull someone.

The professor helping me get into the ancient history doctorate program has a "if you bring up aliens, I will fail you" policy. I like it.

That's too bad.  I recognize that guy.  I love that show.  They're so earnest in their nuttiness.  And check this out,  ol' Georgie Tsoukalos doesn't only wear his hair that way for the show.
