Watching Ancient Aliens Is Like Watching A Trainwreck, You Want To Look Away But Can’t

I felt a little stupid after watching this series. In fact, I could ‘feel’ some of my brain cells just giving up and switch off permanently. It’s like they were saying, “Yer on your own, kid, coz we’re outta here!”
The Ancient Aliens series on History channel put forth the argument that everything we know about our past is wrong. It all began with Erich Von Daniken with his Chariots of the Gods? book back in 1968 which speculated that all the great ancient monuments like pyramids of Egypt and Peru, all ancient advances made by humans and in fact human beings themselves were the result of extraterrestrial interference. Even religion was the result of our ancestors meeting up with aliens (well, I suppose angels are kind of extraterrestrial aren’t they?)
I don’t subscribe to the idea that aliens were responsible for everything on Earth. In fact I find it insulting. So why did I bother to actually but the DVDs? Well, I’ve always been interested in ‘woo-woo science’ mainly for the giggles and besides when I ordered these from Amazon, they were 60% off. Clearly not one of the online retailer’s sought after inventory.
Plus I’m fascinated by this guy’s hair (he’s one of the ‘ancient aliens theorists’):
He’s probably an alien.
