3 Creepy Cases for Ancient Aliens

August 17, 2019

– 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. Let's say the Egyptians built the pyramids, [for arguments sake] did they also build more on Mars and the moon?

  2. I'm with Shane on this one. White people are just daft and generally late to the party (I say this as a white person)

  3. Carl Sagan was a CIA shill paid to debunk unbelievable claims that has no scientific explanations. He was a respected astronomer but he also sold out. Shame.

  4. I mean, okay, so I totally believe in aliens, because there's no way that Earth is the only fucking planet in the entire universe that's suited for life. I just… don't bye that they've actually BEEN here

  5. Magnetic north drifts guys. It probably wasn't where the pyramids were pointing years ago. Where are the sources for these claims anyway? Are they academic?

  6. The great pyramids weren't tombs, their construction is totally different than other tombs from that time. We don't really know what they were for. Some researches suggest they form some kind of ancient power station. Like a Tesla tower… that would be cool.

  7. Someone from Egypt found something important beside the pyramids

  8. smh do some fuckin research, the workers were not slaves at all; that being just one of may errors in this video ??

  9. In five years you will be thinking a lot different and acting a lot different and things will not be so funny you will see how foolish and childish you acted you will see we all go thru it /say your prayers by then no one will need to remind you / you will want to explain it to some young people may god all mighty bless you and keep you safe from the evil one

  10. A lot of information in here that you guys got wrong… just sayin… But I did enjoy this a lot bc I definitely am more of a skeptic when facing these "facts" or whatever you want to call these "proofs that aliens visited Earth and ancient civilizations…" crap… ahaha!

  11. They are recently discovering that humans might have been way more educated and evolved a long time ago then we originally suspected. Archaeologists have found structures built way long before we would have expected humans to be able to build or even think like this have been found… not giving credit where its due is just ignoring facts right in front of your face… that's like me saying that since I cannot comprehend quantum physics, that means that everyone who can either got the information from aliens or are aliens themselves… Just bc we don't know exactly how they build the pyramids or that we can't comprehend cave paintings (one bc we didn't live back then to understand their concepts of their society and two bc it's just a fucking picture on a wall) doesn't mean that we can point it to something other worldly. It's interesting to me how humans till this day after everything we've accomplished, learned, and created, that we still doubt our own intelligence in the past and now. But we give ourselves a high pedestal for the future….

  12. I have a theory in the next couple generations we will try to make a machine to go further in the solar system that will push us in the past and those who were pushed to the past would tell them abt planets and other future stuff the people in the past could have thought they were gods which explains the multiple gods in many religions

  13. Thinking we’re totally alone is kinda self-centered of us. Like, c’mon guys. We’ve been around for such a small amount of time compared to how long Earth’s been around. We’ve barely evolved as a species and we haven’t even conquered the entirety of our world yet, there’s still %99 of the ocean to be un-explored. We’re weak and only live for about 80 years. Despite all of this, some of us think we’re the smartest things in the universe? Oh, please.

  14. non white tribes: * know much more advance technology than white people *
    white people: it could oNLY BE THE WORK OF ALIENS! THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE!
    tribe ppl: no…actually, we devoted a lot of time studying these things
    white people: ALIENS!!!!! ALIENS I TELL YOU!!!!!

  15. The idea that we’re aliens to aliens on another planet is crazy. Like somewhere far away there might be a planet that has intelligent life, wondering when us, the aliens, are going to invade


  17. People can’t figure out how these ancient people moved these giant stones log or rock wheels and lots of men and cattle

  18. So if CARL SAGAN tels san to throw himself out of a bridge he would do it…. ??

    I was a shane supporter until he said that he belives all carl sagan sais…really

  19. i dunno man i kinda hate when people are like “other… people??? doing…. smart stuff…. we can’t do one our own???? must be aliens”

  20. I am really surprised you did not mention that The great Pyramid also has 8 sides. There is a very good case made for a lost civilization that was wiped out apx. 12 thousand years ago. Most people ( even today) live near the coasts, so if there was a sea level rise of 400 feet when the ice starting melting , that would mean most of whatever was around was wiped off the face of the earth and is now below sea level. Ancient Indian texts talk about many ages of man. . Do I think we are alone? No, only somebody who is totally ignorant in 2019 would say we are alone, but I lean towards a lost advanced society that was even smarter than we think we are now.

  21. That's not alien. That's the Nephilim Giants. 9-11 feet tall, 6 fingers and toes, double rows of teeth, long skulls, and red/golden hair. They're hybrids of humans and fallen angels. And they had Supernatural abilities. They still walk the earth today as Demons.

  22. The skeptic needs to do more research. Perhaps he has never heard of how the ancient library of Alexandria was burned down. There may well have been blueprints for the pyramids & so many other answers, but they were destroyed therefore lost. The point about the ramp is if they did use one, based upon the size it would've had to have been, its remnants would still exist. There is no evidence of ramps for any of the ancient pyramids & other similar structures.

  23. Shane is right. Its like how artists drawing things that can be present to the future nowadays like movies we make with robots that take over the world and aliens invading earth and killing us all. Its never happened but just because its there dosent mean its existed, similar to the drawings people made thousands of years ago. Maybe they were just creative smart people. Plus thats all they've ever known, they worked to what they've got.

  24. That’s the great myth, they’ve never found a tomb or mummy in the pyramids themselves. They have found materials at the end of the long shafts in the pyramids that are conductive to electricity though proving the Egyptians were or the civilization before them there were creating electricity.

  25. 9:28 Because they have slaves, Ryan. Slaves. They're called Jews and that's basically the main reason we escaped from Egypt, because of the slavery. WHY DO YOU THINK PASSOVER EXISTS

  26. I think aliens do obviously exist. However I sincerely doubt they've ever been to earth or ever will. It is a possibility that they could've helped with those things I guess, but history has a tendency to discredit ancient civilization's accomplishments and intelligence.

  27. Ancient Egyptians weren’t strong enough or had the technological power to fight aliens so I’m pretty sure they allies each other, now aliens can’t come back without a fight, probably why we haven’t been getting heavy occurrences lately

  28. King James Bible

    Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

  29. Things can be misinterpreted like a painting depicting a maid with her bible that was interpreted to be a maid with a modern day iPhone

  30. The 2 guys are the BEST!! My side hurts from their comments. The information is Great, and the hosts are so enjoyable!!!!

  31. im i think i figuered out a glicth im watching the ramirez toxic death but it says 3 creepy ancient aliens and everyone in the comment is talking about egyptions

  32. I think to completely dismiss the notion that intelligent life could exist elsewhere in our infinite universes/multi universe is pretty ignorant. I'm not saying I believe in all the theories out there. But… come on. We can't be all that's out there. I refuse to believe it.

  33. What do sceptics think these are?? Flipping cartoons carved into ancient walls?? And no we are not alone,it is arrogant to think that we are!!!

  34. I couldn't even finish the video. That Shane guy is such an arrogant prick. It's one thing to be a skeptic, that's fine. Everyone should be able to make their own decision on what they will believe without empirical evidence. But being a such a SMUG skeptic makes listening to him just unbearable. He has nothing to add to the conversation aside from snide remarks and insinuating that anyone who entertains the idea of the ancient alien theory AT ALL is just an imbecile. You can't even have a simple discussion with someone like that.

  35. Why does the music have to be so creepy tho.? Especially at night while in bed next to a window… Just wondering if something is going to jump at you.

  36. Honestly the dogon is tribe could've been hella smart while these Europeans couldn't get with the system ??‍♀️

  37. See the thing with aliens is like… when discussing where they are in the cosmos we forget about time being an important factor, they may have gone extinct and thus passed on their knowledge to us in the form of those pyramids considering all of its fun features lol

  38. Already I know that on the thumbnail The skull was from people who would put pieces of wood on their heads to make their head bigger

  39. Look, okay, it really bothers me when the accomplishments of prehistoric peoples are minimized because we have such a Eurocentric perspective that we can’t fathom other cultures being intelligent and resourceful enough to develop things like the pyramids

  40. VERY compelling! Would either of you laugh if you found out humans "are" descendants of aliens? Personally, I know we have a Creator, but somewhere in my gut, I'm feeling alien too!??✌

  41. Want a proof?… Moon think about this its the perfect size and in perfect balanced position between us and the sun to give us eclipse and its always visible at night everywhere around the fooking world and if not the moon the earth would litterally DIE its stabilizing everything! Theres no better proof that SOMEONE had already planned it all and helped us!

  42. the thumbnail of that skull with the elongated forehead is in fact not an alien skull for it is a thing the ancient egyptians did where they would tie boards to the sides of there heads so there head would only grow up, i know it sounds weird but the egyptians liked it for some reason

  43. I ain't taking a side one way or the other. But cave paintings, and stone carvings were not considered art as we consider it today. Instead it was a way of documenting what their reality was .and to pass knowledge on to the next in the for of pictorial story telling. So just as most of the paintings and carvings depict animals that existed and were hunted they also depicted the unusual and unexplainable.

  44. Westerners who work at desks and put deep fried potatoes into our bodies on the reg saying “how could they physically do that” is a bit ridiculous

    It’s like a guy who eats 3 Big Macs a day looking at Usain Bolt and saying “well I couldn’t do the 100m in 10 seconds so he’s gotta have aliens helping him”

  45. You can do a lot with man power. When the pyramids were built Israelites were inslaved and Egyptians were very smart and if you really think about it thousands upon thousands of men and boys moved those stones. Cleopatra was one of the smartest pharaohs to live in that era and the pyramids existed before her. And yeh the ancients had ropes and pullies they even made scaffolding when making the Sphinx sheesh people you should look in a history book

  46. Ryan: The Dogon and Sirius B

  47. Like a year ago when watching buzzfeed unsolved I refused to like or comment for fear that whatever was in the video would get me

  48. I know nobody will ever see this comment but, Tbh scientist say there is a 1 in a billion chance for life to exist on any planet, with quadrillions of planets in our dimension, it seems impossible for us to be alone…. ?
