M.M.: I have no doubts we are living in a time of rampant irrationality making individuals take decisions based on the most absurd ideas increasing the risk of disasters exponentially. The idea that aliens and not human efforts, research, enlightenment and control risk actions make possible safe and constant progress or the trial of finding shorter and magic path to get results is one of the most dangerous trends nowadays (there are others, probably related to each other in certain degree). In that sense the documentary below is an excellent debunk of all that craziness.
We sincerely hope that in publishing this documentary (embebed from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCLjJAUAxJM) we may help to alleviate the consequences of such viral irrational trend.
About the Documentary:
“Ancient Aliens Debunked is a 3 hour refutation of the theories proposed on the History Channel series Ancient Aliens. It is essentially a point by point critique of the “ancient astronaut theory” which has been proposed by people like Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin as well as many others.
The film covers topics like:
Ancient building sites: Puma Punku, The Pyramids, Baalbek, Incan sites, And Easter Island. Ancient artifacts: Pacal’s rocket, the Nazca lines, the Tolima “fighter jets”, the Egyptian “light bulb”, Ufo’s in ancient art, and the crystal skulls. Ancient text issues: Ezekiel’s wheel, Ancient nuclear warfare, Vimana’s, the Anunnaki, and the Nephilim.

It was produced by Chris White and includes commentary from Dr. Michael Heiser.
It is distributed for free on the internet and is a completely non-profit project. Viewers are encouraged to share, and burn copies to DVD, as long as they do not profit from its distribution.” Source: http://ancientaliensdebunked.com
About Mike Heiser:
M.M.: We knew about his work on ancient texts several years ago and particularly on his development on The Divine Council that is certainly revolutionary, giving to Judeo-Christian Theology a new (or at least renovated) approach that if extended could certainly change many of the cultural paradigms of the West. That is the kind or viral rational trend we look forward.
“Mike Heiser is a scholar in the fields of biblical studies and the ancient Near East. He is the Academic Editor of Logos Bible Software. Mike earned the M.A. and Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. He has also earned an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania (major fields: Ancient Israel and Egyptology).
Mike’s main research interests are Israelite religion (especially Israel’s divine council), biblical theology, ancient Near Eastern religion, biblical & ancient Semitic languages, and ancient Jewish binitarian monotheism. He maintains three blogs: The Naked Bible (biblical studies), PaleoBabble (weird beliefs about antiquity), and UFO Religions (how belief in ETs intersects with religion). He teaches ancient languages online at MEMRA. For more information, see his FAQ and CV.” (Source: http://www.michaelsheiser.com/)
