ET history in ancient stones - author

2011-04-21 10:20

Cape Town - The evidence for ancient human contact with extra terrestrial beings lies in the megalithic structures around the world, an author has said.

Michael Tellinger said that the construction of the structures was so complex that ancient people could not have done it without some kind of outside intervention and blasted critics who suggest that the feats could not have been accomplished, using primitive means.

"I would like to give them [critics] a thousand slaves and ask them to replicate some of these structures. Nobody's replicating that today," Tellinger, author of the controversial Slave Species of God, told News24.

"People sit on their arses have no idea of the complexity of putting these structures together. Guys are just theorising and don't do enough research in all areas of knowledge and information," he added.

There have long been debates around the purpose and construction of structures like the pyramids in Egypt, the moai of Easter Island and those built by the Maya and Olmec in Central and Southern America.


Recent discoveries have raised questions about the technology used to create these structures, some of which have stones weighing in excess of 200 tons and were built by people thought to have no modern technology, including the wheel, in the case of the Mesoamerican civilisations.

"A rule of thumb is that it takes about 10 to 20 men to move a one ton rock, so when you're talking hundreds of tons you're talking thousands of men," said engineer John Brandenburg on History Channels' Ancient Aliens The Series.

One of the puzzling structures is Sacsayhuamán (Falcon's head) near the city of Cusco, Peru. The walled complex was the former capital of the Inca empire and was built of large polished dry-stone walls, each boulder carefully cut to fit together tightly without mortar.

The construction appears to have been done with an unknown technology.

"It's amazing all the weight of the stones... It's difficult definitely for any human to move, even in groups. In some stones we see there are some marks that it seems that it was dissolved," said Jorge Luis Delgado Mamani who has studied the stones for a number of years.

Tellinger said that the mainstream version of human history was completely misguided and the evidence of the stones indicated a "web of deception" leading back several hundred years.

Strategic locations

"Ancient civilisations were obsessed with stone and they had the technology to move it with ease. Civilisations have been on Earth for millions of years - the evidence is all around us.

"This whole thing is one giant web of deception that started when the ancient Sumerians introduced money," he said.

Some authors have pointed to the placing of megalithic structures at strategic locations like Stonehenge in the UK and Carnac in France to tap energy from the earth.

They say that these sites have mystical power that modern people have not yet been able to understand but that can be discerned.

Göbekli Tepe in Turkey has been described as the most ancient temple, dated at about 11 000 years old. German scientists working on the site for 13 years have not found any tools that could have been used to build the huge structures.


"Carnac as a place is highly charged with energy. As you walk down these corridors, you can feel this charge. The people who built Carnac must have been highly knowledgeable of the earth's energy fields," said Extraterrestrial Archeology author David Childress.

Tellinger agreed, saying that his discoveries in Africa have led him to question the view of mainstream science.

"The stone structures we discovered are not new. In the stone circles at Great Zimbabwe we were told that the population was about 2 500, but then we start finding over ten million stone circles. How could that be done with such a small population? Everything we've been told is wrong."

- Tellinger will be speaking at the Mark Park Sports Club in Johannesburg on Thursday and at the Erin Hall in Cape Town on April 27.

    Tangible evidense ? not saying you definately wrong but until concrete evidense is provided its a fanciful theory .

      How much more concrete evidence do you need. Open your eyes!

    Sorry to bring this up, but it's just like "We can't explain it, so God did it", replace God with Aliens.

      JP Rheeder - 2011-04-21 10:58

      Erroneous. God is referred to as a supernatural being, so if things were created by him it explains nothing of how he was created, whereas the aliens are merely a more advanced version of our evolution.

      God, angels .ect are from heaven, that makes them aliens as they are not from this earth but from somewere in heaven or space.

      avaricesa - 2011-04-21 11:27

      @JP, you COMPLETELY missed my point.

      Stryder - 2011-04-21 12:28

      @Avaricesa - I don't think he did. You miss his. You are saying that this is merely a different way for us to try and justify our existence, rather than say there is a God day it was aliens, and that this provides us with a similar relief. However I have to agree with JP. The fundamental difference here is that an Imaginary Supernatural being is unprovable and implausible, whereas other more advanced Mortal beings being involved is actually more plausible, with more evidence available than the former view. Personally I think it merely a case that we are not the most advanced civilisation to have lived on the planet. Maybe we previously bombed ourselves back to the stone age or some sort of natural disaster did it for us.

      Stryder - 2011-04-21 12:30

      @Avericsa- If this is a misunderstanding of your point please would you clarify your point.

      avaricesa - 2011-04-21 12:46

      angela.meadon had my point below, argument from ignorance.

      CharlieSheen - 2011-04-21 12:51

      Thabiso - the word Alien means "not from here". That could mean your house, your street, your city, country, planet or universe. You decide, as the context in which it's uses decides it's meaning in terms of what it's referring to. Secondly, one can't speak of angels, if you haven't yet confirmed that this in itself is actually real. Therefore the entire remainder of your statement too, is false. The FACTS are, that there are no FACTS in anything this man has said. It's all speculation. I can ask you to prove without a doubt that werewolves don't exist, and since you won't be able to, would that mean that they must exist? People hold on to this idea, that if you can't prove me wrong, I'm right...but what they seem to forget, is that you should look at it the other way round. They can't prove themselves right!

    Man. The fairies built them them all. This is all just denial of the basic truth of fairycide that took place a few hundred years ago. Ask Tinkerbelle.

      Spoofed - 2011-04-21 12:26

      LOL daaivark... you crack me up sometimes ^^ buuuut.. something interesting to look into... go Google the word.. ORMUS or as the egyptians called it.. MUFKIT.. this stuff is amazing. apparently the Egyptians extracted the the atoms from gold to a fine white powder (using ancient alchemy methods), when this powder is heated it gets 700 times lighter than its original weight,meaning it levitates.. interesting theory as to how they moved those big stones hey?

      daaivark - 2011-04-21 13:42

      My point exactly, Because humans today don't have the know-how doesn't mean a thing. Civilisations come and go. Ours is taking a little long to decline, but it will. No need to bring aliens or gods or any such figments of our imaginations into the discussion.

      Zion - 2011-04-21 16:17

      Spoofed, Man now I have heard it all. De-atomize gold and levitation, Belixem, This is new to me. Hell these buggers are completely over the edge. Do you know what a Boeing's engine costs? We can sort that out with a bit of this powder and think of the aviation safety advantages. Now, can I tentatively ask if there are perhaps others that fall for this de-atomized gold dust theory. Would pay the world just for the Internet cite. FMD

      Zion - 2011-04-22 10:02

      Spoof, I don't want to be nasty but you have been scammed. Firstly ORMUS or white gold powder is one of those magical cures for practically anything and Is sold under the name of White Gold Powder. with all the hype and fanfare and lies and exagerations which come as part and parcel with Internet advertising. Conveniently stating it comes from ancient civilizations. etc. Thw advertizing Logo: FORGED IN FIRE, MYSTERIOUS,WONDERFUL EXOTIC AND INTRIGUING and other fancy terms, enough to make one kots. Ok, Now for MUFKIT: In my Google Search It only came up with BUFKIT which is a the Software for a weather predicting program. I am still searching for Mufkit.

      Charles Kane - 2011-04-23 15:21

      @ Spoofed - ORMUS = Pixie Dust

      Spoofed - 2011-04-29 09:39

      Yo dudes did i say that ORMUS was in fact what they used? I simply mentioned it lol i don't believe it actually works, unless it's proven to me in front of my own eyes. All i said is that it would make an interesting theory. relax please before you give yourselves an aneurism or something. Also @ Zion the ancient Egyptians called it Mufkit.. they apparently baked it into bread, and they found in a lot of the hieroglyphics that they were eating a golden bread.. if you are like me and enjoy a good conspiracy theory (note i don't believe the theories but i do find them fascinating non the less) then go have a look at this just a random video a found about the stuff. i hope you understand that i don't actually believe the stuff works lol

      Jacques Jones - 2011-06-20 14:12

      @pickle i thought a mufkit is a specialized kit for.....diving?

  • angela.meadon - 2011-04-21 10:51

  • Anthony - 2011-04-21 11:39

    ...we could suppose, we can assume, we will theorise but after all is said and done we have no clue! Maybe we should actually give these ancients the benefit of our doubt they have not just left “mysterious” structures they have also left us with seemingly fantastic “stories” which our historians maintain are just fanciful myths? Who knows? I would think if I really wanted to know something, I would get as close as possible to the source....and in doing that I would try to understand what I am being told in these ancient writings, I have read many varied books on this stuff and I must admit some of the authors do come to some fanciful theories and others do allow you to rethink accepted theories but I have to come back to the thought we do not actually know do we? I mean for all that matters the mighty pyramids of Egypt could have been no more than prehistoric shopping malls for all we know......

  • QuintS - 2011-04-21 12:22

    With a few primitive tools (in todays standard), some good engineering skills and several hundren men, these megalithic structures could easily have been constructed within the 20 or 50 or sometimes 100's of years they took to build them. Ask the engineers in the know. They will confirm. Aliens? Santa? Fairies and goblins? I think not.

    Sigh... what's with all the pseudo-science in the Sci-Tech section these days? Doesn't News24 have an actual sci-tech editor? Or is it simply about publishing anything that sounds vaguely technical? And what's with the lopsided reporting? This sounds more like an advert for Tellenger et al than a balanced report. Where are the counter-arguments? Where's the point of view of qualified scientists that have not written books on aliens or spent years searching for and then "discovering" all this wierd and wonderful evidence which no-one save themselves seem to be able to descipher? I wish I had a penny for every time I heard a "scientist" opine that before the dark ages humanity had virtually no technology. Haven't these guys heard of the Library of Alexandria? The ancient Greek Sciences? Ancient Arab technology? Just because all the evidence was systematically desroyed by the christians during the dark ages doesn't mean the technology didn't exist. Only conspiracy I can see here is one intended to make money off fools who'll believe any story as long as it has aliens or demons in it.

  • CharlieSheen - 2011-04-21 12:46

    When there's no clear answer, people always jump to conclusions, and in the process mystify something which most probably isn't that mystical to begin with. He can't explain how it could have been done, just like people form that age would not be able to explain how big pieces of metal can fly in the sky like birds. Those people will look at planes and think - the gods must be crazy. We all to eagerly assign mysticism to things we can't explain YET, and then once we do it looses it's sparkle and we move onto the next best replacement, thereby starting a never-ending loop. We've been proven wrong many times before, due to jumping to such conclusions, and yet, we still do it rather than wait for us to find the answers. There's a big difference between "aliens MUST have built it" and "I believe, or want it to be Aliens that built it". The question is, which one suits Tellinger, and you more?

  • agadaemon - 2011-04-21 12:52

    I've read Temples of the African Gods and I have applied my own logic to the world around me and I can confidently say that what we are taught about our own history relies on as many, if not more, assumptions than what Tellinger is making. You cannot discredit one thing without discrediting another. Whatever your personal belief is about our origins, remember to question EVERYTHING. The social trend lately is blind obedience which ultimately leads to the stagnation of life and soul. It's a great thing to question this article, even challenge it but don't disregard it just because your beliefs are so deeply engrained that you cant accept a paradigm shift. Love and Peace Eirikr

    Technology advances but human ingenuity has been around for thousands of years. These writers don't think the massive cathedrals build in the middle ages (no power tools there!), the impressive constructions of the Romans and Greeks, the Great Wall in China, etc are worth considering. What a pity these aliens only came to construct some temples but didn't even bother to leave even something as simple as a wheel to there beneficiaries!

    There are many different colours of our skins, and different shapes (a bit) on our body that we looks different, we might came from other planets, that's how they got their secret before they die so we won't get some info from them (Death persons). That's the problem but a researcher could be great cos this will help us to find out. There are many planets in different galaxies, we came from there which the planets are damaged, burned or gone... As from hundred thousand years ago, they (like us the human being) traveled for over thousand years and founded our earth and landed here, but we can't find their spaceships, cos they tried to get rid of them into the space, maybe the sun burned their spaceships. Before babies were born, the old people dies, they couldn't tell the younger ones cos they passed away. I know for the reason! Hope you guys keep well. mail me using my user name with :)

    Check this short documentary out, as a possible explanation of how these structures were lifted. Why is it that people can't think past Aliens? Why are they the only option, just because they didn't use cranes it doesn't rule out another type of tech that has been either undiscovered or purposely suppressed. The elite rulers of earth don't want us to know what they do, because the idea that natural energy has such potential would be damaging to industry. Enjoy.

    Most of the alien theory relating to pyramids and other artifacts have been debunked. Teller has had his day and has lost the arguments time and again but is unable to face the truth that he is definitely wrong. Amble through Wikipedia and other evidence on the internet then evidence much, much stronger than the garbage given by Teller will emerge. Overall, when one considers the evidence put forward by Teller there is an impression that the Aliens who were supposed to have landed on earth were I pretty stupid bunch.

    Some Millennia ago the Drakonian Kurendara race from Nibiru (planet)made a trip to earth to re-introduce the recipe for White powder Gold to the human race. This was done to correct the human DNA, Human spiritual well being and enlightenment, This precious recipe was presented to the ancient Egyptians who proceeded to manufacture the Elixir and promptly lost the recipe when the temple, where it was hidden, burnt out. The powder was the Elixir of life from God. It was his spittle and when mixed with water, his semen. It was given to a woman called Mary and consequently Jesus was born. The user of the elixir has the power equal to that of Jesus - Even ascend to heaven and cheat death. When I was checking the issue out I could not find a "recipe" what I did find was a company selling the stuff or that which they call White Gold Powder and making promises as to all the miraculous properties and backed up by a forum of "satisfied customers". The planet Nibiru does not exist and that is proven beyond all doubt because if it was anywhere near earth or the solar system it would have caused perturbations to all the planets of our solar system. That has never been detected. To the more sensitive readers I have to apologize for the sentence referring to the Semen of God. This was not done for effect but rather for the understanding that the family of man is a rather sick entity. Then and now.

      You've got a point there- but how do we not know that the ancient civilizations and 'aliens' were once or a re the same thing. Ive read a bit on the AC, and seems quite feasable, but with little concrete evidence, its difficult to know where it came from- up top or down under. For all that we know- aliens might look just like us, and that they were the original 'gods' for humans too- its all just speculation

    I dont get it. If i talk about GOD, im crazy, and people say all sorts of nasty things. But if one was taught by GOD himself then surely the possibilities to build or create these structures become clear. When i mention ET's now i becom interesting. Nobody can truthfully account for the existence of Et's. Religion and the concept of a GOD dates back thousands of years. The first mention ET's date back a couple of decades.

    We are probably all aliens, human beings have been on this earth far longer than scientists and archeologists would have us believe, the present crop are far more interested in maintaining the status quo rather than answering the questions such as those posed in Ancient Traces, when they do maybe I will give them house room.

      Steven - 2011-05-10 17:23

      I wrote a book called Lost Technologies of the Great Pyramid. This book provides a detailed description of how the Great Pyramid was really built! New discoveries of lost technologies used to build this massive wonder are the focus of this book! The Original Builders were geniuses who possessed advanced understanding which they used to develop sophisticated technology. Using these advanced technologies they were able to create the wonder we call the Great Pyramid. For more info go to to see a short video trailer of the book.

  • jgyarmathy1 - 2011-05-16 21:48

    I totally think that we were visited in the past and that there was ET technology that built the pyramids. Also the proof of the alien looking drawings in the petroglyphs. I just don't know why it took us so long to connect the dots. Our ancestors left alot of evidence. I wish the govts of the world would disclose and tell us the truth. We have the right to know about our own pasts.

  • SiriusBlack - 2011-06-20 15:31

    Anyone who cannot see the truth for what it is, should rather not get involved or comment at all. There is more solid evidence supporting the fact that humans were created by an extraterrestrial race and were highly influenced by them than anything else. There is very little evidence to support the whole Jesus story as it is told in the bible. Beyond that, if you do your research, YOURSELF, seeing that you have to SEE IT to BELIEVE IT, then you will find that I am right, and so is Duncan Alfreds. People like Duncan, have done the research, thoroughly, and when you do that all the evidence, we are talking about evidence on ROCK, in STONE, thousands of years old, that DESCRIBE extraterrestrial influence. Look at what almost every single current day civilization and all previous civilizations believed regarding extraterrestrials. Almost every single civilization who ever existed have knowledge of HUMANS being influenced by extraterrestrials. PERIOD. The bible story, at least how its told, is a bed time story. If you want to comment, do your research first, then lets see what you have to say. No matter HOW you look at it, the TRUTH is still the TRUTH.
