Technologies of the GodsTechnologies of the Gods brings "convincing evidence" that ancient civilizations utilized high-tech engineering methods equal to, if not superior to our own and that these technologies were being applied on a world-wide level.

It has long been suspected that the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, and the Mayan temples could not have been built using the primitive technologies attributed to those peoples by the orthodox academic view which states that primitive civilization in Mesopotamia, Egypt and India emerged from the stone age just over five thousand years ago.

In Technologies of the Gods breakthrough researchers, writers and engineers take a look at real evidence - largely ignored by the academic establishment - which shatters the orthodox scenario for the dawn of civilization on Earth.

he egyptians inherited the pyramids etc, modern egyptologists like hawass will not accept this, he wouldnt even have a debate with graham hancock on this, it is good for their economy to let the ignorant believe they made these structures

it goes without saying the ancients were far more advanced than quacks give them credit for, i mean look at some of the temples in india that are being hidden by the mainstream, check out praveen mohans site on that subject, that is if y/t has not banned him, they deleted several of his vids lately

The purpose of the Sphinx is for one to find oneself. Not for everyone, but One. The Pachacouti tribe sacrificed 2 children from 250 tribes to ask the god Pachacouti, not to turn the world on it's head at the end of (mayan) time. Instead of using the Sun god's, one must entertain the chinese Lunar cycle, to notice the Monkey King rising to take it's rightful place as what the Sphinx is looking for. 2012 is NOT a year of the Monkey, yet a monkey was reborn in 2012. Simple. A new Human, who did not take the initiation, but cracked the code of who the Monkey is. The arrival of the new human, reborn in 2012, the One who is NOT to take the masonic initiation, or to put it simply, turn the world upside down, at the end of Mayan time. Not everyone knows that the origional medical cadacus found in egypt, over 3000 years old, has a Monkey on top. Todays medical profession omit the monkey for it contains a genetc secret. A Monkey male, has it's dna altered by cruel people. It THEN makes babies. Obviously, it's child has it's dna. Not the modified dna one would expect, but the father's ORIGIONAL dna. Quite simply, the Genetically modified dna of the father is erased or reset before the child is created.. For the Monkey is the height of man's intelligence as opposed to the lower serpent base intelligence. The Monkey of the Nazca Plains, clearly shows the Monkey King , holding something down. The Monkey King hold's the soul in thrall between heaven and earth, on a cross of Tesyract's, directly above the void, that wake's many as they fall into it, in their dreams, unaware that when they reach the botton, they will hear a rush of EVERYTHING, and rather than get knocked off the edge of everything, a fight ensue's, where Odin looses his sight grabbing onto the tree that is predicted by the bible to be torn in half. The Monkey of the Nazca plains is the Monkey King Pachacouti, that same monkey called Thoth. Furious the Monkey of Japan is that same Monkey King. The reiki Monkey mind, same thing.

The proof I AM is beyond your simplistic single one with an 'ALL' that cannot actually exist yet, for all is still in the process of being created, proving those that believe themselves to be one with the all, are dellusional, unable to see the all is still being created. Creation... The gift they threw away...

People keep talking of spaceships, you're travelling on one now moving through space at thousands of miles per hour rotating and revolving around a star in a solar system moving at thousands of miles per hour while in a galaxy rotating at thousands of miles per hour in a universe expanding at thousands of miles per second in all directions, hmm.
People keep saying they moved all these heavy stones to mark the times of the soltices/equinoxes. Really!? they had the knowledge to erect these edifices without martar but lacked the common sense to find an easier way.

The funny part is we humans anno 2019 don't know anything about how certain old buildings like the pyramids were built. Being a building engineer myself I wondered and keep wondering how they were made by of the hardest of stones carved from miles away and what there purpose was. Certain is they werent made by the Egyptians themselves. Till this day we don't know anything. Asking a local servant at the Knossos museum in Iraklion how one perfectly shaped pott of the hardest stone was made she couldnt answer but kept saying ''they had their technologies''. It was so funny because I knew she couldn't.

There were aliens before as much as they are now. These structures have been built by another civ that fell into the dark and left these majestic structures for who to come to learn about them.

The only really intelligent commenter on here ive seen, though I didnt read all the comments, is freely associated97 ! I havent even watched the video yet, but im about to and if its like Ancient Aliens like some on here have said, than it will probably be interesting. Aside from freely associated97, most of the comments as far down the list as I went which was fairly far are just a bunch of closed minded, dumbed down, brainwashed, superficial people who cant handle any possibilities outside of the hypothesis propagandized by mainstream boring superficial people from the early 1900s and before. What closed mind, unintelligent, indoctrinated, dumbed down people you are ! The possibilities in the Cosmos are so far beyond your extremely small, closed, undeveloped superficial minds, and you dont have the open mindedness or courage to even except theoretically things beyong your puny comprehension or awareness or intelligence ! You just belittle and piss on people far more open minded and courageous and intelligent than you because youre cowards ! Albert Einstein talked and wrote about that as have many other open minded intelligent people with the courage to wonder and learn and grow ! Thx freely associated97 for your intelligent open mind well articulated comments ! I enjoyed them ! By the way, belief is for those who dont know, knowledge is for those who find out beyond belief ! ! !

These acts were all done by the gods, little g. The same 200 that disobeyed God. Read the book of Enoch and you will see the connection. Greek Mythology was no myth, it was Lucifer and his 200 who can take any shape they want to disguise their true nature.

...And I thought science was supposed to be the rational "cure" to superstition and religion. Give us logic and reason, eh? Just look at most of you in the comments below. Acting like such brutes to each other over ideas that I wouldn't be surprised if any of you have the credentials and authority over the subject to say anything at all concrete on these subjects. These people in the documentary ARE out in the field doing their homework. In such a vast ever-changing universe I am surprised by the masses that hold to scientific information like it was the word of god. So much so, they feel their entire foundation shaken when new theories are introduced and regress to accusations and name calling. Like a goddamned witch hunt could break out at any moment. Kudos to the fine people like in the doc trying to move and shake the world view. Thank you for evoking wonder and keeping everyone on their toes.

If We couldn't 'evolve' abilities over time and needed 'aliens' to teach
and help us poor little inept hominids... Then who Taught the Teachers hmmmm? Your 'beliefs' fall apart when even a 5 year old thinks about it for a few minutes. It all had to evolve at some point. Even if we did have higher technology 10,000 years ago than we do today, (or a Million) it doesn't mean there wasn't time for us to evolve. We aren't talking millions but BILLIONS of years of time to evolve. A billion is a thousand million. We surely had plenty of time to attain 'golden ages' any number of times and have no evidence of it today. The entire landmass of Earth is constantly being recycled due to convection under and subduction of the ground beneath our feet. There could have been high order civilization 500 million years ago, that itself was preceded by high order civilizations 500 millions years before that, there is no reason to suppose we didn't evolve just because we believe we have done a lot since. Researchers like John Anthony West don't seem to appreciate how much time we are talking about and how many times the Earth surface has disruptively recycled itself, erasing any hope of our knowing what truly happened throughout time. Darwin wasn't wrong, your personal horizon is to small to apply his elegant and obvious theory to your (laudable) goal of extending our history using common sense and what little evidence there is left.
If the 'aliens' gave us the technology to make the Antikythera device, surely hey would have mention the correct number of planets and the fact that the Earth goes around the Sun! (See? Don't 'BELIEVE', Explore All Possibilities until one fits all the known 'facts') like Jean-Pierre Houdin did for the Great Pyramid. He explored everything until he found what set of theories explained every fact we do know.

The only thing we do know is that we don't know. But perhaps the sceptics should think that not only do you have to prove that there was no alien technology you also need to prove beyond any doubt how they actually constructed these buildings. The facts are there as stated in the video, some of these stones could not be lifted by modern cranes & why be accurate to within 1/10th of an inch so that they line up with the stars. How did they achieve that, how did they create monuments in perfect line with one another that are miles apart. How did they create the Nascar Lines that run in perfect parralell for miles without having a view from above. Before you dismiss the outside technology, give us concrete proof that these monuments were created by man.

All knowledge is received so don't blame anyone for trusting too much. However as Bush would say the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. It is the complete lack of any solid foundation for any point of view (ancient aliens, High Technology, God Himself) which makes it very difficult to find a camp to stand behind. I would love to think that if Aliens had visited us in the past they would not have wanted to be forgotten, and all civilizations set out to make a mark, from the earliest cave drawing to the Eiffel Tower. Seeing the pains these people apparently took to dazzle us with their awesome wisdom and power it is strange that there would be no concrete evidence of their technologies left over, yet it's also likely that something cataclysmic did happen to wipe them out.
Because we can never be sure, it's always best to keep an open mind, so that when 'actual proof' does arrive, you're not left with egg on your face

Ancient Aliens theory simply does not have enough real evidence to support it. A much more rational explination is that these ancient people were more advanced than we give then credit for.
Even the theory that they inherited these building techniques from a more ancient, technologically advanced HUMAN civillization makes more sense than AA. After all, homo sapiens has been around in its present from long enough for a civillization even as advanced as ours to rise and fall (about 130,000 years). And 10-20 thousand years is more than enough time for all the iron/concrete in every major city on earth to fade away into mineral deposits.

It's always UFO,s and Bigfoot and 911 Truth garbage and nothing about getting out and doing the real work of managing our world for ourselves right here, right now. Distraction. Distraction. Distraction.

I can lift a heavy block of stone and lay it perfectly on a perfectly flat surface I have created without any special alien technology. It's called ...ready?....FLOATING. You build a wall around a thing and then create a pool and build the thing in the pool. The water's surface provides the perfectly-flat surface for stone grinding and reference, and a barge can be used to lift even the heaviest stone. WATER, people. WATER.

As a renovater of old buildings I am puzzled by the the idea put foreward of the "stapling" of blocks of stone. There would be no need , because gravity and friction would hold the blocks together, the only reason I can fathom for this technique would be to hold the structure together in the case of an earthquake, certainly copper would expand, but bronze would snap, what metal did they use? I use stainless steel staples to hold buidings together ,damaged by subsidence or earthquake damage, but there is no risk of further seismic shifting,here in central France, we have been told the volcanoes of the Auvergne are inert, I remain un convinced, European fault lines are at the best, as the FRench say " capricious".

Thank you because i take it as a complement to think like a child . I love children trying to understand and ask question that amazes me . No format nor hesitation and most of the time , embarrass the adult . Adults tends to think they are right and more knowledgeable and brush children off as childish when no answer is available . There was a big fool that declare in year 1900 that : there is nothing more to study in the field of physics . Einstein give him a big slap by coming up with theory of general relativity a few short years after that . Quantum physics/mechanic spiced up and probably kicked that big fool in the groin . Well , this big fool was no ordinary people , he was the head of this and head of that and recorded his foolishness for all to see . You are lucky in the sense that what is written and posted here will not be recorded to be mentioned in year 2124 , 112 years later . So is mine remarks or comment posted here . To be call a fool is not bad after all , that big fool was holding such high position in the physician world in year 1900 and i am not comparable to him and so are you . What we see in the sky now and recorded by ancient can not be denied . You can't erase all the ancient depiction and religious text about ancient ET came to them and subsequently transform or made a god by our ancestor . You can't accept modern childish man like me that belief in UFO and ancient alien that have interacted with our ancestor . You give so much credit to our ancestor that manage to build the pyramid in Giza , came up with long count calender in South America using their own brain without help but left us the riddle of god coming from the sky in stone . Ya , you are the smartest adult of all , maybe you will be mentioned in year 2124 after all : the man that seek to correct and erase all human childishness , be it ancient or in year 2012 .

Like the pilots of UFO's these machines used to achieve extreme percision carving stone also connect to the consciousness using the nervious-system of the operator.
Knowing of this technology and it's focus within human consciousness will be taken away from humanity once mankind gets discovered using it, fearing it may be used against each other.

How to prove anything . Almost all of us accepted the earth is spherical with picture projected and model depicting the earth as such . How many are privileged enough to fly out of the atmosphere to view that in person . Scientist trying to view the subatomic particles are all depending on devices to detect their existence . Neutrino ,quarks , gluons and our latest celebrity Higgs are all beyond the normal senses we are born and equip with . Can't see nor feel the trillions of neutrino passing through our body every second but all accepted such when we are told so . Told by the scientist who used million or billion of dollar to build devices to detect such , not viewing . Pictures and formula are put forth to represent all subatomic particles in the best way that human can grasp , which the scientist admitted that it is awful . Radar , picture , video , millions of eye witnesses and testimony that all points to existence of ufo or some new name being used now are always under attack by skeptic claiming to be more scientific in their approach . Asking for more scientific evidence but accepting pictures of imagination drawn up by scientist on subatomic particles and the basic model of atom which we can grasp but not the true picture of an atom anyway . Who is the fool now , some fool accepting imaginary pictures produced by scientist soaking up billion and trillion using devices seeking evidences that can't be seen nor feel . These fool will look at the picture in the i Phone as real but the actual scenes the i phone capture as imaginary that needed more scientific verification .

Some times we witness a superior advanced race that comes down to earths surface effortlessly, they indeed witness a restriction of advancements and evolving within humanity. World truths are enveloped in secrecy. Gravity and light technology is forbiden knowledge for mankind. Once man comes close to discovering one part of the method of advanced travel, its taken away quick. It's dictatorship. the money system, and religions that's not allowed outside of this planet. Money and god simply does not exist off this planet or anywhere else in space. God and his hell only exist in the human mind, and the focus on that unfortunately brings its wrath, which restricts any advancements.

"The human race was implanted with alien thought long ago, they have altered the human mind through their high superior technology". These bastards travel millions of years light to teach the ancient humans how to build stone monuments... oh wait, actually there is evidence that the stones were cut and piled "by" the visitors using superior technology from other worlds. Of course they needed to leave stone messages. The stupid 21st century, least evolve humans with access to way inferior technology chose some obsolete gold-anodized aluminium plaques, called the Pioneer Plaques, with hyperfine transition of neutral hydrogen schematics...

Granted that doesnt prove its how it was done. But it does offer some cool evidence on how certain parts might have been achieved.

....A quick and plain answer....."Aliens abducted us long ago, transformed our ape mind only, and this is the result in what you see in the ancient and today's technology." The EBE's (Scientific term: Extraterrestrial Biological Entities) are far in advanced than us, just altering the mind of the subject is all that is needed; we will find this out too, in the future.

information is shared over thousands of years the same way it has always been through writings, oral traditions, religious traditions, buildings, mathematics and sacred geometries...for example. again i don't endorse the idea of alien construction but i do embrace the idea of shared knowledge and skills and the possibility that some of those may have been shared intergalacticly. what i whole heartedly refuse to accept and what has driven me to post is that because we believe (operative word) we know how things are now that we know how they were in the past. do we know for a fact that ancients didn't have computer technology? nuclear? or any other "modern" technology? no we don't. do we know what these structures were used for? no and there is an outstanding amount of evidence that can be coupled with "common sense" that shows the great pyramid was not a temple or a tomb and most likely not even a monument. it in all likely-hood served a function we are not aware of. so my point is that you don't know what the world, universe, humans, and their capabilities were in the past so stop being so dismissive of alternative ideas. if we observe what we can about history without blinders then the only information we can be sure is absolutely bogus is the accepted interpretation of events. i don't see why you are harping on lost technologies as if it wasn't the crux of my argument. we have lost massive amounts of tech and we also have lost massive amounts of information about what kind of tech existed in the past. to back that up just imagine how much technological information was lost when the spanish destroyed thousands of years of texts and culture when they ravaged the aztecs/mayans/etc and the incas. and the universe only knows the cultures and techs that were lost that weren't mentioned in the conquerors account of history. i'm not an engineer but what i am aware of is that many of the features of these structures and their precision are beyond our ability to achieve, so they must have had some serious forms of technology that we can not develop at this moment (be they purely terrestrial, which again i would lean more towards as well, or extra-terrestrial). what we also can't know is how they had such a profound knowledge of the workings of a universe (for example they knew it was heliocentric, which seems like "common sense" but ask middle age europe why they didn't know that) that we can only begin to understand with the assistance of satellites, computers and the like. does this mean aliens told them ? no but could it mean that they had very advanced technologies that we are unaware of? absolutely. and could it mean that they had cultural exchanges with extra-terrestrials? its not impossible. these features and abilities to be as precise in certain technologies still remain out of our grasp with all the nano, bio, and engineering technology that we have accomplished in our own times. and so i will leave all of you with this...what if our modern technological advancements were also enhanced by alien contact?

Look at our world trade center , 2 planes rammed into it brought it crumpling down to pieces . Ram 100 airbus 380 into the pyramid of Giza and i am quite sure that the pyramid would not shake a bit . Can we build such monument that can withstand such act ? We have not even come up with a theory on how the pyramid was built , let alone duplicating one with such precision that is simply mind boggling . Our ancestor built such complex monument ? Mainstream historian depict our ancestor as primitive but yet trying to explain such monument away by giving our ancestor credit as wonderful builder .

Why do these docs always start with ''Did the ancients knowledge and technology rival or even surpass our own''? For all you suckers that buy into this nonsense here it is laid out simple. The ancients built these megalithic structures to measure processions, lunar cycles and so on with great precision. We built computers enough said. Somehow they developed interesting ways of doing these things that we later disregarded as useless knowledge.

They're doing nothing but selling the ingenuity of ancient man with thousands of people and a hundred or 2 hundred year timeline to achieve.

The only thing that keeps us from achieving even more monumental constructions is our impatience. Imagine we had modern machines designed to manipulate blocks the way Wally Wallington does it. Think of the massive wonders that could be built with that modern technology and the time scale the pyramids and Stonehenge were built !

i notice a lot of people on here have a problem with these "experts" as if somehow you are all experts instead. i didn't hear too many of these experts make definitive conclusions (although i hear too many of you making them); all i heard was people who have found additional information that necessitates that we change our accepted understandings of the past. no one knows how our ancients built what they did. not the people in the video (although i would wager they know a little more than any of us) and not any of you. everyone is so quick to dismiss the possibility of aliens cause it makes you uncomfortable (odds are there is a predominance of Christians here, which is also deducible from the way you present your opinions as facts) but why is it so absurd? some say we are diminishing our ancients capabilities, but are we? wouldn't it be diminishing them and ourselves to not accept the possibility that we learned and shared information from this planet and across the universe? is not denying the possible existence of other intelligent life tantamount to a form of species supremacy, implying an inherent right to dominance and knowledge? this leaves us with an illusion of a god-like supremacy over the universe (which by the way is why we find our planet and civilization in such a decrepit state). this is profoundly arrogant and ignorant. i think the technologies necessary to build these structures came from extensive interactions between cultures, plants, animals, nature, the earth, the universe, and even possibly alien life. there were skills and very deep understandings of the inner workings of ourselves and the universe that allowed us at one time or another to create such incredibly amazing structures and obtain knowledges and skills that are not available to us anymore because of our self-imposed planetary/species isolation. the arrogance to think that the only way that we learn and accomplish things is through our own "divine" knowledge and not the harnessing of natural energies, the accumulation of experiences, and sharing of understandings is sickening. stop putting restraints on thought, when we break through the acceptance of what is "known" is when we will find what we need to know.
