I heard they get their power from a hamster running inside a wheel.

Re: Ancient Aliens

The mice are in league with the Illuminati ferrets, of course.

There's no face on Mars. "Ancient Alien theorists" appearing in the media are idiots, con men and loonies. Von Daniken is a crackpot and the entire premise that extraterrestrials were responsible for a single thing we know about the history of this planet is moronic beyond belief, pabulum for the credulous.
Obviously someone hasn't watched 'The Chase' yet.

While that episode is a good adventure story, what it implies about science is absolutely disgraceful.

Re: Ancient Aliens

That photo is obviously a fake, because, y'know, there aren't any stars in the black part. And Mars is gray and not red. And, well, because.

I SMELL A COVER-UP!

No wait, that's leftover tuna fish I'm smelling. Excuse me.

Meh. Is it any less "moronic," than a 'god,' depositing his DNA into a middle eastern Jewish woman named Mary - having a child who at the age of 33 has a grand epiphany that he's also a god/man who goes onto magically create food out of thin air, make water into wine, and even raise a man from death.?

If Von Daniken is a 'crack pot,' so were Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
