    ancient astronaut theory is a low-level archaeological theory(akin to mere speculation), that relies on teleological evidence gathering. Or in layman`s terms, they come up with an idea and then search for evidence to support it, rather than looking at all the evidence first and then trying to understand what it means.
    And it`s next to impossible to know what ancient artists were trying to convey, as many pictographs and petroglyphs that were of "aliens" have been pretty easily deciphered through cultural upstreaming.
    Anyone who believes in ancient astronaut theory cannot be considered a scientific mind in my opinion, it`s all backwards and so wrong it`s sad.

    If we accept those are pictures of aliens then so are these...





    Imagination is a hell of a thing. Even cave men had it.

    Psychedelics may or may not have been involved here. We can only guess- but I am pretty sure aliens were NOT a factor.

    @stormith- Quite right. But it`s also very arrogant to assume you know better.

    Um, who says they were drawing aliens? Could`ve been "gods", imaginary friends, or they were just really bad at family portraits.

    There are examples of elaborate ceremonial head gear in many ancient paintings/carvings. If you`re so inclined, you can see space-helmets there. Of course, by that reasoning, you can see space-helmets in a lot of things ...
