Title: A Possibility Behind Prehistoric "UFO" Depictions?
Post by: prezhorusin04 on October 24, 2006, 11:46:07 pm
Yet another possibility for prehistoric disk depictions of "UFO's" ?

A lenticular cloud is a cloud that is shaped like a lentil seed, lenticularis is their correct name. They form along mountain ranges and in the standing waves on the lee side of mountain ranges. They usually have very well defined lens shaped outlines and may be quite long, like a long seat cushion.

Cool pics, but those aren't clouds.  That's alien cloaking technology *<:)

Thats weird, never saw that in a cloud before. Guess the ancients were a very stupid people or something (or is it us?).

That's really interesting.  I'd like to see one of those sometime just because of how neat it looks.  Natural phenomena are so cool.  :-D

Of course, then the question is whether or not the prehistoric descriptions were near mountain ranges.

Ummm, then why does one medieval painting actually SHOW a beam coming from what you say is a "cloud?" It was painted 1430-1495.

Or this?

painted in 1710 and hangs in the Fitzwilliam Musuem, Cambridge. A disk shaped object is shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus. Hmmm, rethink your skeptism.

Could you provide a link to a larger copy of the first picture?  It would definetly help.

As for the second picture, I do have some opinions (with no real backing of course).  Perhaps the circle is only a symbolic representation of G-d because a circle can be understood as a symbol of infinity ("I am the alpha and the omega.") and maybe even perfection (infinite lines of symmetry or any line for that matter).  But my speculating on the artist's intentions is rather useless because there was most likely only one person who knew the intentions and that person is probably dead.

Or maybe he is depicting the G-d as Aliens? Oh by the way I use to see clouds like that everyday when i lived in hesparia california, in the high desert.

Another thing, I like those paintings

"Light from the heavens" being God is not an uncommon depiction.  Especially using a circle, as Seeker already pointed out, as it is a symbol for the infinite.  Keep in mind that halos and the like look very similar to that.

Another thing about the paintings is that they were painted far after anyone could know what the actual scene looked like, at least in the one with Jesus.  Hence it is merely an artistic rendition.  Who knows what they intended exactly, but the fact remains that these things aren't painted from real life.  That style of painting in that time was not at all uncommon, and these "beams" don't look at all natural/true to perspective therefore pointing at the fact it was indeed artistic liscense.

So my opinion on the matter is that the paintings, while very nice paintings, are simply the artists' ways of expressing a scene and nothing at all historical.  Yet again, it's not something we'll ever know for sure.  Afterall, paintings are usually not even close to historical documents.

As for depicting God as an alien....I don't believe at that time extraterrestrials were really even thought about, but I could be wrong.  My timeline is a bit fuzzy, but I don't believe ever reading about belief in aliens during that time.  Of course, it isn't a topic I've ever really looked into.

Allright, my past pics seemed to be thought provoking, try these, found in a coppermine in australia:

Maybe it's my wild imagination, but these ancient petroglyphs truly look like alien visitors, probably thought to be gods.

I've always half way thought that as well. It would make alot of sence if you think about it.

To the lay eye, I admit that those look like what we see as sterotypical aliens.  However, I think that a further investigation into the culture and the reasons for these picture existing would be in order before making a decision.  Very possibly that could just be how that group drew people, as all of those do look humanoid.  Also, since it it is our sterotypical alien, which we have no idea if aliens would ever even look like that.

Again, if you could post your sources Rhaven, it would be much appreciated, so I can give a bit more educated opinion on the matter.

Yeah It is highly unlikely that alien beings would be huminiod like ourselves..... Unless if the whole theory on how we got to this planet is true. If we are the offspring of some dying alien race. :evil:

If you look through Daniken, Sagan and Sitchin work, you will find a lot of pics like that. They are not rare and are all over the net. Just google it....
