ANCIENT ALIENS: NASA asked to investigate 10,000-year-old rock paintings of 'UFOs and ETs'
By Jon Austin
MYSTERIOUS ancient rock paintings could show depictions of advanced aliens who visited our ancestors around 10,000 years ago, according to staggering claims. The paintings, found in Charama, India, have been said by some to show aliens and UFOs, similar to how they are depicted in sci-fi movies.
A video uploaded to YouTube's The Lost History Channel says the local government in the area is seeking the help of the US and Indian space agencies.
In the video, the narrator explains how a number of the paintings were discovered.
According to local archaeologist JR Bhagat it is unclear as to what the images were supposed to be of.
He said: "The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers, Dailystar.co.uk reports.
“Extensive research is needed for further findings. “Charama presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject.“
The expert also said some of the other features of the paintings were unclear and the characters appeared to be wielding weapons.
He added: "The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years.
“The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features.
“Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. “In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits.
We can't refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things.”
The narrator said archaeologists have contacted NASA and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to help solve the mystery.
There is a popular ancient alien theory our ancestors were visited by an advanced race of aliens that helped them build great monuments such as the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge.
This is due to question marks about how primitive societies were able to achieve such feats.
There are claims of depictions of aliens and UFOs being found in ancient art across the globe, including in Egypt and even Aboriginal rock art in Australia.
One viewer of the video posted on YouTube: "Evidence is everywhere, we need opened eyes, that's all."
And another claimed: "We don't need to find aliens, they are already here all around us."
However, sceptics say that ancient art also includes depictions of dragons and other mythical creatures, and this does not mean they existed.
They also argue that humans were often depicted in weird and wonderful ways in rock and other historic art work.
