Re: Ancient Aliens

Ancient Alien theory is the same brand of drivel as intelligent design. A lack of curiosity about the universe leading people to say "a wizard did it".

It also denigrates everything our ancestors accomplished. Human beings aren't clever, it says. Everything cultured about us comes from outer space. It vastly underestimates what the human race is capable of, and makes massive assumptions.

As a humanist, I see it as no less than a slight against the ancient cultures of the world.
