I am not championing this idea; rather, I am presenting it as a possibility. I realize it has been presented before in various ways, including in the “ancient astronaut” context. Let’s take a moment as UFO investigators to focus on the Greek gods and ask if they might have been advanced UFO beings.
Reason One: The Greek gods threw lightning bolts.
Might “lightning bolts” have been laser or even scalar technology? Strangely enough as I was working on this essay, there is a feature story about Apollo 12 and how it was hit just after take-off by not one but two lightning bolts. This was one of the later Apollo missions which encountered such strange lights, colors and objects on the moon. There is the theory that humans were being warned not to continue exploring the moon.
Reason Two: The Greek gods kept themselves separate from common people. They resided on or in Mount Olympus – a perfect base of operations.
Reason Three: The Greek gods occasionally had encounters or manifestations with or for-- the common people.
These events, for all intents and purposes, are UFO encounters. Why did the gods bother with “abductions?” Indeed, we have to ask the same question of UFO occupants.
Reason Four: When taken by the gods, the common person felt an “Oz factor” about their experience.
As we know, UFO researcher Jenny Randles has coined the term “Oz factor” to explain the zone of silence and other-worldliness which descends on those experiencing a UFO encounter. Some abductees feel paralyzed. Others feel no fear at all when it makes sense that there would be some fear or hesitation, even in the most adaptable of experiencers. And, of course, the phenomena of missing time can be found in tales which the ancient Greek people told as well as in the accounts of UFO abductees.
Reason Five: The Greek gods rode chariots across the skies. The Greek people must have witnessed these vehicles and incorporated them into what they could identify in their own cultural context.
Reason Six: The Greek gods were a mixed group, not all were human-like.
There was an array of “demi-gods” and “monsters,” which might have been genetic experiments. The concept of a chimera began in the days of the Greek gods and describes any mythical or fictional animal with parts taken from various animals, or to describe anything composed of disparate parts. Genetic experiments?
Today we stand on the threshold of incredible genetic advancements, for good or ill. There are 20 natural amino acids, the building blocks of life, but thanks to the creation of two artificial DNA letters, added to the 4 natural DNA letters, we now have 172 amino acids with which to play. Did the Greek gods have similar advancements?
The ancient gods had what might have been a variety of extraterrestrial races:
Amazons - mighty, skillful female warriors
Charities - the goddesses of Joy, Charm and Beauty
Muses - The goddesses of Art and Science
The Pleiades - the gods of the mountains
Nymphs - the gods of Nature, Winds
Is this how the identifying characteristics of other advanced species were described to the common humans? For instance, The Pleiades were stationed inside the mountain. The Muses excelled at science.
Reason Seven: Reports of gods intermingling with humans run throughout Greek mythology. These couplings with both human males and females were controlled by the gods – where, when, how.
Today, we hear about UFO occupants taking eggs, sperm or tissue samples from humans. The scenario is always under the control of the UFO occupants; humans do not have a say-so in when, where, or why.
Reason Eight: Hybrid children resulted from the mingling of god and human DNA. Those beings who resulted from this mingling were indeed “less” than the gods (less strong, less immortal), but they were more advanced than the common person. Heracles and Achilles are examples.
A “hero” (hybrid) might have ongoing contact with the gods. Were these the same gods as involved in creating this hybrid’s DNA? Today, many people who had an encounter, feel that they have ongoing experiences with the UFO occupants whom they met.
It was said that the gods lived inside human and humanoid bodies with an ethereal fluid called ichor running through the veins. They had passions and human weaknesses; they did many wrong acts but usually had to take full responsibility of their actions. Perhaps keeping a connection with the human they first worked with, is part of that responsibility.
Reason Nine: If the Greek gods were wounded or ill, they seemed to have better medical services available than did the common humans. Of course the Greek people just assumed the gods could not be wounded as badly as humans. UFO occupants probably have medical knowledge far ahead of ours; both ETs and gods are said to have healing abilities, of course this might just be access to advanced medicine.
Reason Ten: The Greek gods seemed not to age like common humans and might have been immortal – or close to it.
We do not know the life spans of the UFO occupants. It probably varies by species, but even today, we live longer than did our grandparents, who did not have the medical expertise of which we can avail ourselves today. However clearly, we have a long way to go –we haven’t even found the cure for various cancers. We have not yet found the cure for Alzheimer’s or the common cold. It can be assumed we will live longer than we do now – in the future.
This is all food for thought if you care to think about it! I feel the concept that the Greek gods were time traveling humans, perhaps from a thousand years in advance of us - is a leading theory. After all, the descriptions of the actual gods and goddesses were not like extraterrestrials of the “ET” kind, they were more the “golden human” type of UFO beings.
The gods and goddesses created bizarre life-forms like Harpies, Sphinx, Satyrs, Minotaur and Cyclops, but the gods themselves were quite beautiful. Future Humans will probably have perfected or greatly improved, the human genome.
Or perhaps the gods were an alien space-going race who landed on Earth and began the classic Greek Civilization.
Or perhaps the common Greek people simply made it all up because we humans are a creative and imaginative race.
However, I have a suspicion that we have never been – alone.
