2.2 – GODS & ALIENS (11.4.10)


Lovelock, Nevada. In the early 1800s, local legends passed down by the Piute Indians told of a race of giants who were exterminated by their tribe. It is said that this was done by trapping the giants in a cave, shooting arrows at them, and then starting a large fire at the mouth of the cave. Evidence of the slaughter lay undisturbed until the early 20th-century.

“Lovelock Cave was first discovered by local ranchers who were looking for bat guano to use in their fields.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

In need of fertilizer for their crops, the ranchers removed nearly ten feet of guano-enriched soil from the surface of the cave.

“And then they began finding human remains. They found up to 40 or 50 people inside this cave. One was allegedly seven feet, seven inches tall. They all had long, red hair, and were literal giants.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

If these skeletons were the remains of the legendary red-haired giants, were they visitors from distant continents?

“Throughout the 19th-century, many giant skeletons were allegedly discovered in the Midwest, also in parts of California, and around Death Valley. And the skeletons here, found at Lovelock, are one of the few that were really excavated by an accredited university.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Archaeologists from the Nevada Historical Society and the University of California believe the cave was occupied from approximately 1500 BC until a few hundred years before white man appeared in the Nevada territory. 75 miles from the cave site, a local museum has preserved several skulls that some believe are the recovered remains of the giants.

“Inside this cabinet here, are three skulls from the Lovelock Caves. When you first see these skulls, they seem to be pretty much normal-looking skulls. However, it’s when we really start to compare the jawbones with this modern dental impression of a normal adult male, that we see that these jawbones are unusually large. And these are, really, the skulls of giant people who were perhaps seven, even eight feet tall. One of the odd things with these skulls is that they’re not actually put on display here at the museum. And they’re kept hidden in this cabinet. Now we don’t know if that’s really just out of respect for Native Americans, or whether there’s really something unusual about these giant skulls that they don’t want them to display.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Are the Nevada bones evidence of a race of giants that existed all through early human history? If so, could the giants be the descendants of extraterrestrials? According to the Hebrew Testament, one such giant appeared in the Valley of Elah 2,500 years ago. Each morning, for 40 days, a Philistine giant over nine feet tall challenged the Israelites to a fight. His name was Goliath.

“David and Goliath is one of those episodes in the Bible where you wonder what is going on? Is it just a metaphor or are we dealing with a fundamental interpretation? And in that sense, Goliath has to be a giant creature. The question then is: ‘he cannot be human. What is he?’ ”

David’s stunning triumph over Goliath was considered a mere fable, until archaeologists turned up evidence that suggests this confrontation really did happen. On the outskirts of Tell es-Safi, Israel, scientists discovered a moat that may have once protected the Philistine fortress. Nearby, they found shards of pottery inscribed with the name Goliath. Tests indicate the pottery is from the same time period as described in the Bible. Ancient Astronaut Theorists claim this is unmistakable evidence of extraterrestrial giants in biblical times. And they say there is much more.

The most common megalithic construction known is the Dolmen. Believed to be burial chambers, they are found throughout Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Asia. Could these mega structures be the ruins of giants?

“Archaeology likes to use the world ‘dolmen,’ but they were formerly known in folklore as ‘giants’ graves.”

– Philip Coppens

(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“A dolmen is shaped liked the Greek letter ‘Pi’ with the top on it. And they’re made of enormous blocks of limestone. And even today, we are marveled that anyone could construct those things, and wonder how they go the top of the top of the uprights. And those were built during the Middle Bronze Period, which is roughly 2000 to 1500 years before the common era. So, seeing things like that, people questioned, those must’ve been made by giants. I mean, ordinary people could not have done that.”

– Fr. William J. Fulco, Ph.D.
(Archaeologist, Loyola Marymount Univ.)

“Are we dealing with metaphors or are we dealing with hard evidence? Are these physical creatures which somehow roamed the Earth? And I think, on volume, we have to accept that some of these were real. The question, then, is how did these genetic freaks come about?”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“One of the main tenets of Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests that a long time ago, extraterrestrials changed our genetic makeup through a targeted mutation of our genes, essentially in the lab. So, they took a couple of human beings, altered their DNA, then reinserted those people back into the population, so through procreation, those people would pass on those new genetic alterations to the entire population.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the evidence points to one conclusion, that aliens changed the genetics of early human DNA.

“For an alien being to work with DNA is so easy that just creating a new type is not all that difficult. Even today, we have the capability to create new types of animals. The question is, were we created as such, as well?”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

But what reason could extraterrestrial visitors have had for populating the Earth with mixed species and monstrous hybrids? Were they the result of some kind of scientific experiment gone terribly wrong? Did Ancient Aliens have some reason to experiment with human DNA?
