The Moon Isn’t What You Think It Is

Each night the moon makes its majestic appearance. Without this luminous sphere, our planet would be a vastly different place. It is responsible for the ocean’s tides, seasons, temperatures and Earth’s very rotation. Both humans and animals are affected by the lunar presence. Scientists have theories about the planetary object’s origins yet all remain mere speculation. Some researchers disagree with current hypotheses and have proposed an intriguing conclusion. They argue the moon is an artificial satellite placed into orbit by advanced extraterrestrials. 

“The Moon is bigger than it should be, apparently older than it should be and much lighter in mass than it should be. It occupies an unlikely orbit and is so extraordinary that all existing explanations for its presence are fraught with difficulties and none of them could be considered remotely watertight.”

-Alan Butler, Who Built the Moon?

Lunar Lore Throughout History

While the notion that the moon is a synthetic celestial body may seem unimaginable, it has been discussed for thousands of years. Our ancient ancestors who had no contact with one another all shared matching stories about a “time before the moon”. Greek philosophers Aristotle and Plutarch referenced an age where the astronomical glowing orb did not exist. In Africa, Zulu legends chronicle how the planetoid was similar to an egg with its yoke removed. Tribespeople believed this hollowed heavenly lantern was brought here by advanced alien beings. Indigenous Colombians also recounted a pre-lunar civilization in their writings. These diverse groups lament that when the transcendental shining ball arrived a terrible cataclysm unfolded, nearly eradicating humanity entirely. Earth’s population was supposedly reduced to a single race. Modern science has ascertained that human beings share one common ancestor: Mitochondrial Eve. Might it be plausible ancient fables may be in fact be knowledge of events long forgotten?

Rang Like a Bell & Strange Sounds Emitting

Prior to mankind’s historic cosmic ventures, Apollo 10 traveled to the dark side of the moon. During radio transcripts, the astronauts speak of hearing “eerie outer space music”. Bizarre electromagnetic tones similar to the frequencies recorded inside Saturn’s rings were clearly audible. A dreadful otherworldly orchestra encompassed the ears of every voyaging passenger. NASA affiliates quickly dismissed the acoustic oddity and blamed radio waves interfering with the satellite’s magnetic field. However, their argument is not applicable as the planetary body does not possess a magnetic field.

UFOs & Extraterrestrials in Ancient Art

Artwork has been created by human beings for thousands of years. Long before written language, drawings were used to chronicle history. One particularly intriguing aspect of ufology is a repeated presence of bizarre crafts and strange creatures throughout numerous depictions. Ancient civilizations with no contact or communication amongst themselves often illustrated eerily similar subjects: UFOs and extraterrestrials. Did our ancestors witness physical phenomena which they deemed worthy of documenting for future generations? That conclusion is for the observer to decide.

French Cave Painting
Deep within the Niaux caves in France is an incredibly mystifying drawing. Seventeen orbs emerge from beneath a stereotypical flying saucer. In 2015 NASA decided to investigate the unusual artifact after respected archeologists inquired about its origins.
