cave art allegedly recorded ufos

Here's an unusual article about cave art found in India, allegedly dated to c. 10,000 BC, that depicts short aliens who landed in round craft and took local people away. That is what the local legends say.

The cave is near the city of Mansa (I think), in the Punjab region of nw India.

Re: cave art allegedly recorded ufos

The rock art there has been studied for a little over a hundred years now. No aliens or spaceships, just folks depicting their lives and beliefs all of which is far more interesting than a play for the next episode of Ancient Aliens. http://www.cgculture.in/ARCHAEOLOGY/...hattisgarh.htm

Maybe it was an ancient cave painting doing early promotion for that scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, where hundreds of people are chanting and point toward the sky.

I just don't see anything there that makes me think they were depicting alien visits in those paintings.

Yes, watching us do things. Unspeakable things. Millions of years of evolution just to post here. At least when civilization collapses, the Net won't be left behind on the walls for people to gawk at and ask what they were thinking.

Maybe it was put there as some kind of Rorschach test to measure the stupidity of future of generations.

I can't but think some pre-historic comedian thought 'this should screw them up down the line.'

They'll probably assume aliens were responsible for it. Humanity can't invent things on its own, don't you know anything?!
