Présentation de l'éditeur
In his new book, packed withphotos and diagrams, he consults ancient texts and modern stories and presents astonishing evidence that aircraft, similar to the ones we use today, were used thousands of years ago in India, Sumeria, China and other countries. This means that theseancient civilisations had advanced metal technology, electricity and the engineering knowledge of flight many thousands of years before our own era of flight technology. Childress discusses ancient UFO sightings, the fascinating lore of ancient flight and the technology allegedly used in the flying machines of the ancients.

So, what are the stories about, these flying machines referenced in the Mahabharata, suggested in Sumerian art, or imagined with the airplane of Saqqara? I direct the reader’s attention to two recent works. First, Mandelkehr, M. 2006. The 2300 BC Event, Vols. 1-3, and, Bond, A. and Hempsell, M. 2007. A Sumerian Observation of the Kofels’ Impact Event. These two works offer a more realistic and scientific account of intense meteor showers that occurred around 2300 BC, an event that corresponds with the collapse of the Indus Valley Civilization and many others. There have been numerous cataclysmic events in Earth’s prehistory and the most recent events, beginning around 9600 BC, would have stayed in the memory of our ancient ancestors and interpreted according to their cosmic perception, that is, gods flying about in vessels of one type or another, firing plasma and dropping bombs, and so forth.
But there is even a more compelling reason to question the Ancient Alien Hunter’s interpretation of the ancient’s explanation of cosmic events, and that is entheogens, mind-altering substances (drugs) used by our kind for thousands and thousands of years to commune with the other side and interpret events and make decisions accordingly (see, Entheogens and the Development of Culture). There are numerous substances – cannabis, henbane, belladonna, Datura, ephedra, opium, Syrian Rue, Psilocybe sps., Amanita muscaria – mentioned in the literature, displayed in art (Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, etc. – see, The Mushroom in Christian Art), and found in archaeological sites. The priests/poets were the elite and they reported an elite experience – they had wonderful imaginations! All religious traditions are based on the use of entheogens beginning with shamanism right up to the present day. I would be delighted if someone would challenge me on this position. So, is it Amanitas or space aliens?
The Ancient Alien Hunters need to explain away natural occurrences (meteor showers, etc.), and how our ancient ancestors could have interpreted these intense events. They also need to address the ritual use of powerful mind-altering substances and how these explain the wild imaginings of a people long ago trying to make sense of their experiences of their environment. I highly recommend all of Childress’ works for those interested in the construction of a new myth, revamping old symbols, to fit a modern appetite.
If ancient history is of interest, then I recommend this book
