More Evidence of Alien Visitation 6000 Years Ago?
When I opened my facebook page this morning this image greeted me.
It was posted on the facebook group 1 Million people who believe in Aliens & UFOs (of which, incidentally, I am not a Liker) along with the following caption
This carving was found in Kiev, Ukraine. It is approx 6,000 years old (4,000 BC). Given the context of where and when it came from, just through the vastness of how long ago this was made it is very difficult to explain this carving as not being of something other than “other worldly”.
As always you decide……
…and it got me thinking. That looks really interesting. But alarm bells were ringing because the carving looked more like a casting to me. And that halo looked a bit like casting flash – metal that seeps into the gap between the two halves of a mould. But without examining the artefact that’s a little difficult to tell.
The other thing that bothered me was the date and the quality of metalworking. The end of the stone age began around 4500BC (just 500 years earlier than the date for this artefact) but didn’t happen all at once, so if this date is to be believed the complexity and skill involved in the production of the artefact just don’t fit.
This tool is dated to around 4000 BC the same date as the metal spaceman!!!
So time for a little Googling, I thought.
I quickly discovered that most of the information about this artefact were copies of the same image and the same caption claiming it was 6000 years old. But no additional information. One of the huge problems with the internet is that people just copy and paste stuff without any investigation.
I persevered and discovered that this item is known as Kayapo – the Scythian artefact. A switch to Googling that search term brought forth a little more information. Most importantly the dating suddenly switched to 700 BC.
Wow! that’s a big difference. That’s almost modern, and a time when metalworking skills were well-developed. That changes the story a little.
But it still looks like a spaceman!!!
Ok! But it also looked to me like it was wearing something that reminded me of an Etruscan helmet.
But first I needed to find out about the Scythians. They were a group of people living in the area of the Asian steppes. They were skilled metalworkers. Grave goods have revealed a beautiful artistry in their working of gold and bronze.
Here is some of their work from the same period:
As you can see they were very skilled at working metal. In fact these, to me, make the artefact look a little primitive and I wonder whether it might have been the work of an apprentice.
…and this is what the Scythians wore into battle.
Now doesn’t that helmet look a bit like the one on the artefact?
The Scythians had contact with the Greeks and Greek helmets from around 500BC looked like this…
Now, I don’t know about you but to me all of those look remarkably like the images of aliens that we see.
Getting back to the original image, it seems to me that there is nothing paranormal about it at all. The metalworking techniques were well within the capabilities of the society that produced it. The image itself could well be depicting armour worn by that society at that time.
I know there are a lot of people out there who believe in alien visitation and space ships and love stuff like this artefact and the writings of authors like Von Daniken, but rather than take stuff on face value – be real and check it out yourself.
The truth is out there – and it took me about thirty minutes to discover it.
