    I have to wonder if any of the people really believe the things they say on the show, believing aliens visited earth is one thing, believing akhenaten's oddly drawn head and the fact that egyptions could build things proves it is something else entirely.

    actually the spartans were aliens. This is shown by how inhumanly sexy they look in 300.

    Well think about this:

    1. The Spartans were an ancient group of people.
    2. The Spartans were also featured in Halo.
    3. Halo is a game about aliens.
    4. Therefore, the Spartans were Ancient Aliens.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    is that his crib? if so I like his style.

    Look at it this way, if you make a living by doing independent, uncredited and especially uncritically reviewed work you have to earn your living by selling books, that takes getting people interested in what you are offering them, regardless of aliens. He could be promoting interest in the shamwow it makes no difference.

    actually I think he works from home, I saw his blog or whatever and apparently they had a flood at their house and had to move all the books he has for sale in to storage.

    I think he has a copy of the Orange Box up on his shelf. I mean some of those thing do not look like books, they look more like dvd cases.

    The Great Flood of Summer 2010
    By Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (Albums) · Updated about 10 months ago

    For anyone who has wondered where the heck their latest Legendary Times Magazine and their A.A.S. R.A. Membership Card is, we've had a bit of a near-disaster happen over the past 2 months: We've had a serious concrete slab leak which not only damaged our book depository and archive, but it also required weeks and weeks of reconstruction.

    One of my favorite parts in this is the one on Puma Punku.

    I gotta sit through this and get all the quotes. Now I do believe Puma Punku is pretty fantastic and extraordinary, but some of these quotes are just out of this world

    From Childress

    "and they were using machine tools to cut these blaaahks" lol @ voice quiver/spooky music

    but Girgio picks the most believable sensational exclamations

    "it's as if only master builders were allowed to work there because everything is so precise everything is so perfect, you wonder how any of this was even possible"

    The critic with the mow hawk though is funny too, kinda of the super logical / annoying type.

    Mr. Tsoukalos seems like a regular everyman. I like that.

    The best part is his enthusiasm, but I would also be pretty enthused if I was selling books on the subject.

    "logic does not exist in Puma Punku"

    But he also knows when to reign it in, just when we think he's going to talk about how fantastic something is he switches it up with a kind of skeptical twist that seems to justify his ends (which is awesome by the way)

    speaking of Puma Punku does anyone know if there is a fully 3D render of the site?

    No, but I'm going to check out Puma Punku now. Perhaps Ancient Aliens, by inspiring people to actually research history, is deserving of it's spot in the History Channel line up.

    Or maybe not.
