Most of my blog readers will know I find those of you who believe in flying saucers and aliens (little green men) etc a load of rubbish but that is not to say that I don't believe there must be whole lot of undiscovered planets beyond our solar system that have not been discovered and would sustain a life of sorts.
I have always been fascinated by the history of man. My question is how intelligent were are forefathers and ancient man who have always been portrayed with a limited amount of intelligence. When you read what I have posted below It just might change your mind.
Though Leonardo da Vinci may be most famous for his works as an artist, he actually spent quite a bit more time working on his endeavors in science and technology. Of course, his detailed sketches and distinct artistry played a large role in his inventions, and his sketchbooks later provided evidence that da Vinci had envisioned many ideas long before the technology to build them actually existed.

So obviously man had a higher intelligence in the 15th century than we might have given them credit for. Now let step further back in time, say 3,000 years: Decorating an Egyptian temple wall at Abydos are strange hieroglyphics which depict what appears to be modern day aircraft. This finding has caused much controversy among Egyptologists and archaeologists who are not sure what to think. How could people 2-3,000 years ago possibly have known about modern-day aircraft?
When Dr. Ruth Hover and her husband took a trip to the pyramids and temples of Egypt, they were shocked when they discovered, in the temple at Abydos, hieroglyphics depicting modern-day aircraft. She photographed a wall panel in a section where an overlaying panel with Egyptian hieroglyphics crumbled and fell, revealing an older panel beneath it. This older panel, shown above, contains images of what appear to be modern-day technology—a helicopter, a submarine, a glider, and another unknown type of aircraft (some believe resemble the Hindenburg).
Some people believe the ancients had communications with aliens from another planet, while others believe aliens from planet Nibiru are responsible.
The below photos display a couple of ancient trinkets that, upon first glance, were believed to be insects. But after a much closer examination, studies tend to show that these objects are similar to an airplane than any kind of insect that is known to us.
Various puzzling evidence was found in other ancient civilizations which has intensified this debate further. One of the most intriguing specimens to be found in an area covering Central America and coastal areas of South America, are these Gold trinkets! Estimated to belong to a period between 500 and 800 CE:
I wanted to make a list that tells us about the history of some of the things in life that we take for granted. We all know who invented things like the telephone and the television, but we don’t know when or how the staples of life were invented or discovered. So, here is a list of 10 things we take for granted and the history of their use. With the exception of one item (the wheel) the rest come to us from the Paleolithic era. This list is ordered from most recent to oldest.
10. The Wheel 5,000 BC. 9. Twisted Rope 17,000 BC. 8. Musical Instruments 50,000 BC 7. The Boat 60,000 BC. 6. Pigments 400,000 BC 5. Spears 400,000 BC 4. Clothing 500,000 – 100,000 BC 3. Housing 500,000 BC 2. Fire 1,000,000 BC and 1. Knife 2,500,000 – 1,400,000
