I can't disagree with myself. Anyway i hope you will stop this offtopic and keep this discussion in same rules you set on your thread. If you have something to add Alien-related go ahead but no personal attacks. And this is problem on internet - people quickly derail it for laughable reasons.

No personal attack, I agreed with you and you then disagreed with me. As for rules.

Yet you put religion, god, and evolution in the tags.

With regards to aliens and pyramids, that "pyramid" in the Antartic is merely a mountain that has a "squarish" base (looking at the video clip tit certainlsy isn't square) and has a pyramid look. I'm sure any alien who could travel through interstellar space and build somethong could do a much better job than the Egyptians etc did with regards to that actual shape.

Seems to indicate that many worlds out there have beings with souls to me.

Or that there are many souls on this planet and none "out there".

Once again i ask you these questions i already posted in Religion mega thread - if we evolved only by Darwin theory why the heck would we need junk dna and why would humans have left AND right brain at similar proportions? Aliens or something else but when it comes to feeling reality - you can't beat the feeling! And creation explains everything more precise than evolution brainwash. As mentioned before - Atlantis may be real place in history just either mistranslated today or kept as secret. It could be one of spots where creation begun. Aliens are more appropriate cause science has answered to question if our universe is capable of them - oh..they can be so much your head would explode. Also aliens are not perfect creators so humans could have flaws because of that. But we evolve for better with time..

This is arse about face. If our biology is the result of intention design, why the heck would we need junk DNA? I mean, last time you bought a toaster, did it have a lump of scrap metal attached to it just because? No. Something that is designed would not be carrying junk around.

Something that evolved is quite likely to have features that had some benefit in some evironment at some time but is now just leftover. There are many rather poor design features that have resulted from evolution, but they have conferred at some point, for some reason a benefit to those that have them greater than the problems they cause us now.

If we had been designed as we are for the environment we currently inhabit the only conclusion you could come to is that the designer was frankly incompetant.

Wow..i have been telling you also something else you don't pay attention to! People in charge be it aliens or whatever who could be said "rule the world" don't want humans to have access to whole DNA and that would make perfect sense! We were created and later modified our DNA by twisting it to be less threat to them. Since they can't get rid of it they can just modify it to fit their needs. This makes perfect sense. Our origins are kept secret on purpose. Someone wants us to think we are junk. Also our designer is missing from scene so..can't make false accusations about it to begin with! The facts still say evolution is given by creation.

Too bad this is english forum..this russian video maker provides good argumentation but rarely who will agree with him from here since only few will understand russian.

To use your own phrase against you

Time to stop distrust and give some benefit of doubt afterall.
Give the benefit of the doubt that Atlantis is fiction and there is no secret deliberately being kept from you.

With regards to the rest of your post you are mixing your theories and it is not worth much effort explaining to you why you are probably mistaken. It is just easier for you to believe what you want.

Sorry but i don't buy this nonsense. Maybe Atlantis is code name for some other past location or object like "Garden of Eden" in history but even when i was little i felt strong emotional feeling(almost like it was part of my ancient life or something like that) that that place was real and so did many other people watching any material about it like this disney movie. Speaking about Hollywood - ever noticed they put a lot of ancient stuff in it? Like recently there was Smallville and Fortress of Solitude is suspiciously similar to Giant Crystal Cave in Mexico. Maybe the reason why they put that stuff is because it is or was true afterall..

What nonsense don't you buy? You think Atlantis has deliberately been hidden from you, that is nonsense.

So the people in power now have codenames to keep things secret from you.

You need to stop watching kids entertainment and thinking it is real.

Ever noticed Hollywood is a place where people make things for entertainment, the emotional highs and lows is exactly what they want from people like you so you spend more money watching.

The Crystal Cave you mention is a natural geological formation, it grew naturally it wasn't put there by any alien. Considering you are so into TV and YouTube look up "How Earth Made Us" and watch the very first episode (I think it is called "Deep Earth"). The same guy also did another series called "How to Grow a Planet" and more recently "Rise of the Continents". Everything you are saying is being kept secret, has codenames. or was put on earth by Aliens has a much more realistic explination.

Yeeeah. I think I'm going to need some more evidence before I bite. "aliens or whatever" is a bit vague for my liking. Maaybe you could be more specific?

"don't want humans to have access to whole DNA" you know this how?

"This makes perfect sense." That you could store doughnuts on the horn of a unicorn for when you got hungry while riding makes perfect sense. Doesn't change the fact that unicorns don't exist. Garbage in garbage out.

"Our origins are kept secret on purpose. Someone wants us to think we are junk." Again, you know this how?

"The facts still say evolution is given by creation." What facts? You haven't got any, just a random jumble of unsubstantiatable assertions.

Maybe you should write science fiction/fantasy books?

I'm not selling anything so you aren't required to buy it. I was just saying to consider possibility of Alien life and discuss it. Science supports it if you don't believe me. What happened to open mind? Everyone shut it, locked and closed for ever throwing or destroying key?

What makes you think unicorns didn't exist in past? You know a lot of mythology is actually rewritten history facts. Just because we don't see unicorns today in human dominated society on Earth doesn't mean anything like that didn't happen long time ago when we used to be closer to nature and when lot of cool species existed that are now extinct or in "Red book".

But that is not what you were saying. Discussing the possibility of alien life is not the same as saying: Look, they were here, they have created us and now some third party is trying to hide some obscure ancient knowledge from us.
