Ancient Aliens – Aliens and Mega-Disasters
Ancient Aliens has never been subtle, but in a week where tornadoes have killed dozens, having a bunch of ignorant know-nothings argue that aliens cause natural disasters, including the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011 and the Haitian earthquake of 2010, is just disgusting.
Episode S04E04 “Aliens and Mega-Disasters” argues that aliens “may” have had a hand in volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural cataclysms, including the asteroid strike that killed off the dinosaurs “on purpose.” How the aliens would know that the mammals that 65 million years later would give rise to humans would not also die, I can only imagine. Why the aliens waited 65 million years to create humans, I also could not possibly fathom.
Now, here I have to confess that geology is not my area, so I have a bit less to say this time around. Of course, geology isn’t the ancient astronaut theorists’ area either. No type of science is their area. As we shall see, by the end of this episode these theorists have once again misinterpreted and fabricated facts to create false “proof” that the aliens warned the Chinese about a meteoric impact in 3116 BCE.
