For the most part, it’s complete science fiction, but there are some interesting theories about ancient civilizations and their possible connection to extraterrestrial beings based on stone carvings, cave paintings and other artifacts. The Mayans are mentioned in nearly every episode.
I suppose the powers that be at the History channel felt airing a back-to-back episodes of Ancient Aliens seemed appropriate since 2012 is predicted to be the end of the world. After all, the Mayan calendar stops on December 21, 2012, which means the end of days, of course.
Should we take cues from a civilization that is completely extinct or should we not even give a second thought?
I liked Ricky Gervais’s view on it all.
In the meantime, I’m just going to keep on running and enjoy each day as a gift and not worry about ice caps melting, Armageddon or aliens collecting people.
