3 Creepy Cases for Ancient Aliens


– This week on BuzzFeed Unsolved we discuss three of the
most compelling mysteries that suggest the presence
of ancient aliens. So, let’s drop some sweet knowledge. – I’m already fed up with
the folders by the way. Looks too official considering the nonsense that is within. – The existence of aliens,
or extraterrestrials has long been one of the
great mysteries of the world. According to a 2015 survey
conducted by yougov.com, about 54% of America, 56% of Germany and 52% of the UK, believe in extraterrestrial intelligent life. That being said, history seems to indicate that aliens may have visited
our world in ancient times, aiding us at the brink of civilization. There are cave paintings
like this one from Australia that may be up to 5,000 years old that some interpret as
creatures wearing space suits. Or this painting from 8,000
BC in the Sahara desert that illustrates what
appear to be spacemen leading natives in a line. – They’re just people.
What’re you talking about? – I’m just saying what
people interpret them as. – That’s a basket of fruit. – How do you think
that’s a basket of fruit? – It’s just a basket
of fruit on their head. – There’s two of them
with baskets of fruit? And everyone else – Why does that one in the
back also have a little basket? – Maybe it’s a child – No _ Look how small the rest are. Why are these so large? – Here’s a drawing of a Mayan carving that shows a man attached to what some construe as an oxygen source, as he operates controls in
what appears to be a spaceship. Other fascinating objects
include this hieroglyph from the temple of Seti I that dates back to the 14th century BC. The glyph appears to
contain hovering spacecrafts and modern day flying
machinery such as helicopters. – Why would there be a helicopter? – I don’t know, why would they
know there’s a helicopter? – Are they time-traveling? – Possibly, I don’t know. Why would they know that unless they were unless there was some kind
of intelligent civilization that visited them that would
be able to show these things? – So the aliens show up, show them pictures of
helicopters, and fly away. – I mean, this isn’t the
entire, I mean this is what we’ve discovered
so far, there could be – Well I can’t wait to see the rest of it. – (laughs) Okay. – I can’t wait to see a poster of the motion picture Wedding Crashers – (laughs) Okay. – And well, some lava lamps – Additionally a funerary marker from roughly 100 BC shows a woman presenting what some consider a laptop with UBS ports. – How do they charge it? – I don’t know. – Why are there USB ports on it if they don’t have thumbnail drives? – I don’t know. I’m just
saying what (laughs) – What are they looking at on it? There’s no internet. Do they have Photoshop? – And finally here’s a hieroglyph from Hathor Temple in Egypt that shows workers operating what appeared to
be enormous light bulbs. Perhaps explaining how
artists were able to see when drawing elaborate
hieroglyphs inside their tombs. – What are you drawing? – Ryan, here’s you with three butt cheeks – (laughs) – I’ve drawn it. Now it exists. – Why do I have little penguin arms? – (laughs) I don’t know, why do you have little penguin arms? That’s a good question. Here’s you with little penguin
arms and three butt cheeks. I’ve drawn it so it must be real. – But beyond these small
scattered references to alien and modern technology, there are entire cities, civilizations, and architectural undertakings
that make us question if we’ve always been alone. What follows are the best
mysteries that history has to offer in regards to ancient aliens. – The first mystery we’ll discuss
is the Dogon and Sirius B. The Dogon are a tribal
group in west Africa, south of Timbuktu in the Republic of Mali that settled sometime between
the 10th and 13th centuries. In the 1930s and 1940s, the studies of french anthropologist Marcel Griaule and Germain Dieterlen
revealed that the Dogon knew a surprising amount
of modern astronomy. According to their
studies, the Dogon believed these things, all of which
are scientific facts: The planets orbit the sun. The earth and other planets
rotate on their axis. Saturn has a ring. Jupiter has four moons. And finally, that the
star Sirius is actually part of a double star system containing a star called Sirius B
that has a 50 year orbit and is invisible to the naked human eye. Knowledge of how planets orbit would not require advanced technology. However, to know about Saturn’s
ring and Jupiter’s moon, would require remarkable eyesight and an extremely clear sky. But what is truly
astonishing, is the Dogon’s knowledge of the star Sirius B. Especially when you consider the fact that scientists were only able to discern information about Sirius B with the use of quantum mechanics, relativity,
and advanced telescopes. This leads some to believe that the Dogon were taught about Sirius B by a far more advanced civilization. Dogon mythology reportedly speaks of them being visited by a set of beings referred to as the Nommo, who according to author Robert Temple,
are amphibious beings from the Sirius star system. – That’s cool. – You have nothing to
say about any of that? – I will fight you tooth and nail when it comes to ghoulie ghosts, but aliens are a little more probable. – I win. – No you don’t win. – I think I won. – Because I’m sure you have plenty of other stuff on here that’s very dumb. – Though, some people have other theories, such as Robert Burnham, who believes that the Dogon could have known about Sirius B due to extraordinary eyesight. He theorizes that with a ten inch reflecting telescope and clear skies, Sirius B could have been seen. However, if this were true, the Dogon would also been able to see Uranus, Neptune and
other cosmic observations which they did not. Another doubter is author Carl Sagan, who believes that the
Dogon’s cosmic knowledge is suspiciously consistent
with an informed person from the 1930’s and ’40’s. Sagan posits that the
french anthropologists that visited during that time and broke the story of the Dogon, merely entwined Sirius B into the Dogon’s existing mythology to
make an interesting story. – Well look, if Carl Sagan
believes it, I believe it. – But he’s just saying they lied. – Well then he’s probably
got an informed opinion. He’s Carl fucking Sagan. – But all that said is
he thinks they lied. – Well then I’m on board with Carl Sagan. – But there’s no evidence
to back that they lied. – I don’t give a shit, he’s Carl Sagan. – The second mystery we’ll discuss is the ancient city of
Tiwanaku in Bolivia. A city that was high above sea level, roughly 13,000 feet. The people of Tiwanaku utilized massive monolithic stones that
weigh up to 450 tons. How the people of Tiwanaku
moved these enormous stones remains a mystery. Some suggest the stones
were pulled along logs, but others believe aliens may have aided with anti-gravity methods. Also discovered on the site
were 200 elongated skulls, possibly the heads of shamans, whose heads were bound to that shape in an effort to amplify their ability to
communicate with deities. – I can’t imagine that’d be
a pleasurable experience, also you’d have to do that,
over like, your lifetime right? Probably? I can’t imagine
that’s like a quick process. – If I were like 5 years
old and my mom was like “We’re gonna start doing something now “It’s gonna last a long time, “but, when it’s all over,
your head will be very long.” – (laughs) – I’d probably say – (laughs) – “I’m good. I’ll just sign
up of karate or something.” – (laughs) – Conceivably, these shamans
elongated their skulls to emulate the deities that visited them. Perhaps the main mystery of Tiwanaku, is what instruments the people used to carve their stones to
achieve such exactness without the use of power tools. For example, there are
H blocks that interlock in a detailed and sophisticated manner that require no mortar. On site, there’s also a
caLendar that some believe dates millions of years back, and made by visitors from outer space. For good measure, near
Tiwanaku’s Gate of the Sun is a wall decorated with heads that some believe could be aliens. – If a thousand years
from now someone was like “Wow, have you seen Signs? “Signs, the motion picture
they made back in the day? “They found aliens, it was crazy! “They ruined a kid’s birthday party” – Okay see, you’re talking
about a civilization that is us now, that is able to perceive advanced art and like expression that way. We could separate
reality from not reality. – Yeah – What I’m positing is I don’t know if they had that capability back then, especially in the cave paintings one. – You don’t think back then – In the cave painting ones you think that – You don’t think they were creative? My big takeaway here is
that art is not proof. – Okay, sure. – The third mystery is
arguably the strongest indicator of ancient aliens:
The Pyramids of Giza. The three Giza pyramids were constructed between 2550 and 2490 BC in Egypt. They were build as tombs for the pharaohs meant to emulate and honor the gods. The first and largest pyramid, also referred to as The Great Pyramid, was built around 2550
BC for the Pharaoh Khufu and is around 481 feet tall. Each side of the pyramid was 756 feet, and the area of each side is 5.5 acres. The angles at the base of the pyramid are nearly perfect 90 degree angles. All of this suggests that architects had a high understanding of mathematics. That being said, here are some things that make me question who, or what, those architects may have been. – You’re telling me those
architects used math? Knock me down with a feather. – (laughs) I’m suggesting, and
some people are suggesting, that perhaps it was a
little too advanced based on – That’s so disrespectful. – (laughs) – The Great Pyramid was
constructed of roughly 2.3 million stones. Each weighing between 2.5 to 15 tons. In order to finish the
Great Pyramid in 23 years, the workers would have
to set a block every 2.5 minutes every day of the week. The Egyptians did not have
wheels, pulleys or work animals. So how could they have
lifted and transported these enormous stones with
that kind of efficiency? – Can you imagine if you
spent your entire life haling around heavy stones? And someone was like “No, they couldn’t have done it, “you know what it must have been? “Space aliens. I seen ’em” – Every 2.5 minutes, one block every fucking day of the
week for 23 years straight? – Could’ve had hustle days. – I’m saying, it doesn’t matter
how many slaves there were, if they didn’t have the tools to do it – Well fact don’t matter then – No! I’m saying they
didn’t have the tools that is facts! – Some have suggested a ramp structure, but it would have had to be massive, and no evidence of this
construction has been found. – If I’m building a giant,
mighty, wondrous thing, I’m not gonna be like “Hey, can you do some
chiseling of uh, the ramp? “We really gotta show off the ramp. “It’s a hell of a ramp.” – Are there blueprints for the pyramids? – I’m sure there is, they had all the mathematics and things broken down. – Are they written is alien language? – Oh my god. – Additionally, The Great Pyramid is perfectly aligned with magnetic north. It is unknown how the Egyptians could possibly have known this, though some theorize it had to do with observing the cosmos. The perimeter of The Great Pyramid when divided by twice the height allegedly results in the
number pi up to its 15th digit. This may also demonstrate a suspicious knowledge of mathematics. The pyramids of Giza are also considerably well-preserved in comparison to other pyramids around the world, despite the Pyramids of
Giza being centuries older. – Some have claimed
this is due to the fact that they were upkept over
the past hundreds of years. Though others believe it is a sign of unearthly preservation. Finally, the three pyramids align with the pattern of Orion’s belt, a fact that some consider
an impossible feat for the Egyptians to accomplish. Unless of course, they were
building based on instructions. – I don’t doubt that they
were mathematically adept. – Well the other two weren’t math, the magnetic north and – Again, magnetic north, they
could just observe the sun. – I don’t know. – So it was aliens? – (laughs) Yes, so it was aliens. – They showed up, gave ’em Ipads, gave ’em a Zune, built the pyramids left, and that’s it. – Sure, yeah, all those
things in that order. – And they haven’t been back since. They haven’t been back since. – Yeah, they were like “Fuck humanity.” – What we covered are only
some of the ancient mysteries that inspire wonder and curiosity of our place in the universe. And as with most stories that deal with the existence of extraterrestrials, the answer is never definite, and always left to
personal interpretation. Were we visited and aided
by aliens in ancient times? Do aliens even exist? The answer for now remains unsolved. – I think they lied. I have yet to see any compelling evidence. – I thought that was compelling, unless of course they lied. – You think a lot of
things are compelling. – I found that very compelling. – Go fuck yourself, have a nice day. – Alright. (spooky music)

  1. They elongated their skulls by banding newborn babies' heads up until the age of six when the two hemispheres of the skull fused together.

  2. Yes we are most advance and intelligent species but not the only….in some situation chimpanzees and dolphins are beat humans and they are only animals so think about that. If you take the God word that we humans are the best creature of all time among Satan and Devil think that as the Satan has power and immortal but humans are best not Satan so why we are best? because we have combination of things which no other creature has like sense of judgement, fear, happiness, pain ,thoughts , love etc. so in conclusion Maybe there are high possibilities that we are not alone and there are other Extraterrestrial creatures which are Intelligent but not the best as humans.

  3. Need to lay a 2.5 ton stone every 2 minutes? Even we cant do that in modern times. Forget the tools, that feat alone is very improbable especially considering where humanity was at during the time.

  4. Ok no remains of humans have been found in the pyramids so they wasn't tombs. They are older than said and I think we all know modern humans are too fuckin lazy to build that. We cannot achieve building the pyramids at our current level of technology at that pace.

  5. People never seem to mention that anicent egypt has no evidence of other forms of mathematics, astronomy and precision engineering (on this scale). You would think there would be another object mentioning or depicting magnatic north or the sirius stars. Probably because they couldnt replicate any of it as is was done by inscrution.

  6. As a Muslim, I believe that God could create a lot of things, and also jinn who are supernatural creatures unseen to the eye who could have visited these people. The long skull thingy shows that they needed a way to connect to these entities. And since jinn have a long lifespan, they accomplish and discover things earlier then us humans. They verity of creatures in the art could show them, as jinn are shapeshifters because they cant be seen in their true form.The

  7. One question, why don't you show the faces of the people involved? Love this series, just show the faces, anyone can google them… so why bother to cover them? Is it copyright related? If it is, then i need a tin foil hat :p

  8. I’m not sure aliens exist, I definitely think it’s plausible, but I don’t think this I proof of alien existence. Egyptians were highly intelligent, I think they were more than capable of creating what they did.

  9. Apparently there is a room underneath the sphinx but no one is allowed to excavate. I wonder if it would have the idk, blueprints of the pyramids or other information regarding the building of them. Strange that egypt won't let anyone check it out though

  10. All this evidence is just people refusing to acknowledge that non white civilizations were way smarter than europeans back then.

  11. probably just a group of aliens stranded maybe 10 to 15. with advanced spaceships very huge and messing with not so advanced civilization on far away planet just for education.

  12. The pyramids were not lined up with magnetic north….because 4k or 12k years ago magnetic north was in a different spot. It moves miles every year.

  13. 2.5 minute if they just place 1 block but they were at least 20000 so its unrealistic to think that 500 pulled the stones to the psramid and the other 19500 didnt do anything
    They pulled hundreds of blocks at the same time so yeah 23 is very short but not really with these techniques

  14. Magnetic north can be determined by putting a needle on top of a floating cork; it's literally elementary school science.

  15. I believe aliens are very probable, but I think them bothering with us is very unlikely. I just don't think we're important in the grand scheme of things, and I think all those theories are based on narcissistic thinking (and a touch of derision towards ancient peoples)

  16. Tombs ! ? OK that's where I leave, I thought this was going pretty good, until I heard tombs. Just a couple of knuckle heads I guess.

  17. You guys realize that the Egyptians wrote about everything and they didn’t write ONCE about the pyramids. AND there are no hieroglyphics in the pyramids. Also have you seen the diagram of what it looks like inside. Deff was not originally built for mummies…. y’all fools believing 3 old white farts that made up history with no documentation

  18. Idea of being
    Sahara desert
    Temple of seti – helicopter. Spacecraft

    Dogon. Mali
    Planets orbit around the sun
    Earth orbits around it's axis
    Saturn has a ring.
    Jupiter has 4 rings

  19. I dont know who the hell that white boy thinks he is but he needs to tone it down and stop acting like he's a damn philosopher wHO OnlY KnOwS The tRutH

  20. Or maybe not Egyptians at all? Or aliens. I think the Pyramids are FAAAR older than we think. I believe that there once existed a global civilization that were far more advanced than we are led to believe and perhaps even greater than we are now. But some ungodly solar flare or natural disaster reduced the human population to a very small Number, sending us back years.

  21. Well guys The helicopter Sculpture thing.. Maybe People copied The "Style" of the Stone sculpture helicopter..i still dont know what to call the Helicopter sculpture thing

  22. If i draw an alien and in his forthhead i wrote lets say the number 3955 and some years later an allien appears, the same allien of the sketch, and there is the same number on his forthhead then only an idiot can say "oh, i draw something too so it must be real".

  23. WELL I MEAN THE NAZIs stole ancient secrets out of Egypt and discovered advanced technology which they used to build their flying saucers and much better military equipment so of course germans believe in ET's, they know they exist! xD

  24. but yea you know the sTargate movie- that's based on real life. so helicopters make total sense. Cause the stargate when glitched sends you back in time. Everyone knows that without the dialing device glitches can happen. Remember in the TV series there was that one episode where there was a tv show "Wormhole X-Extreme" based on SG1! That's what SG1 is to the real life stargate team in cheyenne mountain where NORAD is. They took the gate from the Nazis during WWII. It was a clever bit of disinformation, a way to cover up the fact that something like this really exists. No one would believe it because they'd all asume it was just from the tv show.

  25. 2:10 They had electricity way back then. It was just created differently. "The Baghdad Battery or Parthian Battery". A ceramic pot, a tube of copper, and a rod of iron. This battery functioned as a galvanic cell, possibly used for electroplating, or some kind of electrotherapy.

  27. 8:06 tombs? did you find any mummies in the tombs? NO! Did you find any heiroglyphs in the tombs? No! The 3 great pyramids look nothing like the decorated walls of th e Valley of the kings where pharohs are buried. Why would you presume the Great pyramids were tombs when they clearly had more to do with sound?

  28. they weren't tombs everyone with a brain knwos this, stop spready 20th century propaganda. 1 nameplate of khufu- more like 20th century graffiti. Nothing else was found written on the wallas anywhere but from this bit of graffiti you're 100% sure they were tombs? Come on…

  29. the pyramids were built at least 9,500 years ago. 23 years- yeah right. Only in fantasyland aka Zahi HawASSland

  30. Lifted stones with water and animal skin air filled balloon things. sounds weird but think of it like flotation devices.

  31. Were 'Magnetic North' and 'Orion's Belt' in the same direction 7k years ago that they are now? No. The only resemblance to 'Orion's Belt' is the fact that there are three in close enough proximity. Also if you can cut stone into blocks, which they could, what would be the easiest, tallest and most solid structure that you could make? . . . a big pile or in other words a pyramid. Afterwards you could shape any tunnels within as long as the blocks can maintain structural integrity. However I do see the Pyramids as a massive monument but to the thousands of slaves that died creating them.

  32. Dude the thumbnail is not aliens the human skulls are in Inca civilization they practice cranial deformation

  33. "Dunno what to say about this" "Oh, don't worry, these 3 theories are so absolutely batshit crazy…" I love your honesty.

  34. I'm from Cochabamba, Bolivia and we learn in school how tiahuanacu (Tiwanaku) was built and about their religion 😂

  35. Carl weathers i mean sagan sais the monkeys in tea hoo hawhoo got amazon prime on what looks like i phone two yeah see its in the skull see that bone thats the apple iphone bone its elongated like a apple these rocks randomly placed on the ground form a giant script for transformers amd mike b is a time travler look at the mona Lisa real close see theres trump in the background oh and the temples actully have 900 sides u just gotta look at it from fucking mars and elon is a alien see proof

  36. If our universe is infinite and goes on forever eventually you would have to come across another inhabitable planet that had life on it

  37. Bro if I were an alien and I gave all of this hyper advanced technology to the Egyptians and all they did with it was build some fucking rock triangles, I wouldn't come back to Earth either.

  38. I’m really starting to wonder if what we think of of as “extraterrestrial beings” are actually ”inter-dimensional beings”

  39. What if those writing on the walls means there were no aliens? Means its their spacecraft and theyve already inhabit another planet.

  40. Wait okay big theory what if aliens are actually humans in the future and they got attacked by actually aliens from outer space and what of they didn't have the best weapons to defeat the aliens so when the aliens who and took over the earth someone used a time machine and helped us so that we could have already better technology by the time aliens come because at one time in the future we will invent time machines so that means that there could be time travelers hidden but ready for us to experience the alien ivasion like they did
