The Ancient Alien Question-A New Inquiry Into The Existence, Evidence
and Influence of Ancient Visitors
by Philip Coppens poses some very
important questions as to how advanced ancient engineering feats were
accomplished by the ordinary people of the time.  There is a considerable
impossibility to recreate a number of engineering feats even utilizing
modern principles of mathematics and engineering.

For instance, there are three 800 ton stones incorporated into the base
of the Temple of Baalbek in Lebanon, while a single stone weighing
more than 1200 tons lies abandoned in a nearby quarry. At the end
of the twentieth century, there was equipment capable of lifting up
2000 tons, although transportation of the blocks was virtually
impossible to perform. The meaning is that the engineers of Baalbek
possessed a technology surpassing modern capabilities.

Out of Place in Time and Space by Lamont Wood explains the
controversy over a 1460 painting of the Christ child holding a toy
helicopter in hand while being held by the Mother Mary. The cover
of the book shows a picture of the Mother Mary with a flying saucer
overhead. So, the art world provides independent evidence of
unexplained phenomena centuries ago.

Another imponderable is that in 2500 BC, the three pyramids of the Giza Complex
in Egypt were laid out in the formation of Orion's Belt. Two millennia afterward,
the three pyramids in Teotihuacan in Mexico (the other side of the world) were
constructed similarly.

Another imponderable is life expectancy as set forth in the Bible. The Book of
Genesis sets life expectancy at 120 years. Genesis-Book 5 cites Adam who lived
930 years and at least 6 other people who lived beyond 900 years old. Martin Luther
believed that these patriarchs had a better diet and sounder bodies with less of
an impact of sin.

The Nazca lines in Peru are one of the billboards for ancient theories of aliens.
The patterns are reminiscent of modern airport layouts. The logical question
addresses itself as to the reason these airport designs were constructed
somewhere in the vicinity of 500BC.

The Nakhla meteorite fell to earth on June 28, 1911. Many people witnessed
its explosion in the upper atmosphere before falling to earth in 40 pieces.
When analyzed , the meteroite turned out to be the first Martian meteorite
to show signs of aqueous processes. Scientists found that the rock had
been exposed to water which is a condition precedent to water ever existing
on Mars. In recent years, the Mars orbiter and rover missions have shown
that Mars once had abundant sources of water. If so, the odds favor the
notion that Mars once had and still may have microbial life.

The Ancient Alien Question poses important issues concerning whether or not
aliens ever visited this planet. Does the presentation provide enough evidence
to answer the skeptics?  Probably not. What would be needed to strengthen
the case for aliens having once visited the earth? Examples of direct evidence
would be unexplainable language lettering found in only one or a few places,
untraceable minerals/materials found in only one or a few locations,
dead corpses with differentiating characteristics that are not fully human and
machines which function mechanically against the teachings of modern science
or inventorship. An example of such machinery would be a crashed flying
saucer operating under fusion power principles which haven't been fully
perfected on earth.

The Ancient Alien Question takes the reader farther than other literature
which has absolutely no support for alien visitations. There are a
collection of novel and unexplainable ancient artifacts together with
some machinery that demonstrates an unknowable origin or purpose.
The proof of alien visitation is an extremely difficult undertaking
which may not be resolved conclusively in this century or the next.
