• Friday, April 27, 2018 marks the 13th season of the History Channel show Ancient Aliens. The premiere episode is entitled ‘The UFO Conspiracy’ and will deal with the Pentagon revelations that came out in December of 2017 revealing that the U.S. Government has been researching and exploring UFO’s for years. Not only has the U.S. Government admitted to it, but they allowed the release of video footage that shows how fast and maneuverable are these UFOs. This UFO video footage will be featured in this premiere episode.

• ‘Ancient Aliens‘ host Giorgio Tsoukalos is one of many who have been telling us for decades what the Pentagon is just now admitting – that we are not alone in the universe. In the 1950’s and 60’s the question was whether extraterrestrial intelligence exists in the universe. Today, most astronomers will concede that intelligent life must exist elsewhere, and the question has become do they interact with us now on Earth? The answer, says Tsoukalos, can be found by the evidence here on Earth.

• “I am 100% convinced that our history goes back much much [earlier] than what accepted archeology teaches us,” says Tsoukalos. “Our ancestors… were meticulous in writing down their history as it happened to them at the time… [T]he origin of all the stories were the same – someone came and taught mankind.”

• “There is no question in my mind that our worldwide history goes further and deeper into time than we currently accept as the mainstream idea,” says Tsoukalos. For example, by studying the erosion marks of the Great Sphinx in Egypt, geologist Dr. Robert Schoch, believes that it dates back to 12,000 BC. This coincides with ‘The Golden Age’ of ancient Egypt, in 12,500 BC when so-called “gods” with a lower case ‘g’ (ie: technologically advanced extraterrestrial beings), mingled with human beings on Earth.

In the last several decades the topic of whether we are “alone” in the universe has always been a controversial one. As long as there have been reported “sightings”, the government has been denying that the “sightings” were true. However, in 2017 the New York Times released a story that proved that the US Government has been more concerned about the possibility of UFO’s than they lead the citizens of the country to believe. The New York Times reported that the US Government did indeed have a program called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The program lost its funding in 2012 but experts believe it has found funding under another name.

As the story of the US Government finally breaking their silence on one of the biggest and most tight-lipped topics in Washington DC hits major news sources, we turn our focus to the men and women who have been telling us for decades what the Pentagon is just now admitting. We are not alone in the universe.

I had the distinct honor of speaking with one of those brilliant minds today, ‘Ancient Aliens‘ host Giorgio Tsoukalos. I was so honored and excited to do this interview. It is not every day you are able to hold this kind of discussion with someone with the kind of passion he has for his work and I was extremely moved to learn as much as I could in our short time together.

RB: What convinced you that the Ancient Alien theory could    be valid and that it needed further research and exploration?

GT: I was very lucky growing up with parents who were avid travelers. Ever since I was 6, 7 and 8 years old, my parents would travel to various countries and they would always carve out time to go the museums and to great gigantic monumental archeological sites. Also, my grandmother was a very open minded woman, and instead of reading ordinary bedtime stories to me, sometimes she would read would read Edgar Cayce ‘Atlantis‘ and ‘Chariots of the Gods‘. So the seed was planted fairly early in my life. Then, when I was around 14 or 15, I discovered the books by Erich von Däniken on my own, and as they say, the rest is history.

RB: Do you feel that the topic of Aliens and UFOs has become more accepted in the recent years-not just by the general public-but in the scientific field?

GT: Absolutely. I also think ‘Ancient Aliens‘ has been a huge influencer on that opinion today than, let’s say, in the 50’s and 60’s. There were only a few astronomers who were toying with the question if extra-terrestrial intelligence exists in the rest of the universe.

However, here we are 50 years later, and you would be very hard pressed to find any astronomer denying the idea of extra-terrestrial life. Even though the big question they have now is whether or not that life has had interactions with us here on Earth. That, of course, is answered through the ancient astronaut question. Bio-astronomers are at universities doing research and trying to find whether or not there are remnants of extra-terrestrial visitations in our solar system and on other planets. The question is, “Why are you looking at other planets, when the true evidence is right here in front of our eyes?” We should be looking right here on planet Earth.

RB: You have visited so many of the ancient sites, for example, Tribal and First Nations. They seem to all have similar creation accounts. What are the most common threads that stand out?

GT: That is a wonderful observation, and thank you for that question.

Let’s say we look at 20, just for argument’s sake. 20 ancient cultures dating back 3000 years. All the creation stories for each culture would be different, but most of the creation stories are the same. They talk about a silver egg, or a silver orb, arriving from the depths of nothingness that lands on Earth. Then, the egg or orb opens, and people emerge. From there on out, civilizations have begun. So, one has to ask the question, “Is this a figment of our ancestor’s imaginations or did they actually witness something.”

The one thing we have to remind ourselves is, it’s not me or the Ancient Aliens show that are inventing these stories. We can read these ancient accounts of someone descending from the sky on ancient text and also in oral traditions.

So, the fact is that our ancestors are the ones who say they have been visited. It is not us today who are just now saying it. It is our ancestors who were meticulous in writing down their history as it happened to them at the time. Of course, things were added over time. Stories were embellished, but the origin of all the stories were the same-someone came and taught mankind.

RB: Do you think it is possible that ancient civilizations much older than we think existed here on Earth, and they may have been some species other than human?

GT: I can’t answer to the question of other species because I am not aware of that, but, I am 100% convinced that our history goes back much much later than what accepted archeology teaches us.

I am not saying these things lightly. I am basing these ideas on research of scientists, because I don’t have a degree in science. I am a journalist. I talk about these ideas. For example, Dr. Robert Schoch, a bonafide scientist (a geologist) tells me that physical evidence, (the erosion marks of the great Sphinx in Egypt, Gisa Plato) indicate to him that the Sphinx may date back to 12,000 BC. I shall listen to a Geologist who has come to that conclusion.

There is ancient text that speaks of The Golden Age of ancient Egypt, back in 12,500 BC. It was a time when so-called “gods” with a lower case g, mingled among the human beings, so, there is no question in my mind that our worldwide history goes further and deeper into time than we currently accept as the mainstream idea.
