Ancient Aliens Season 5 Episode Guide
Ancient Aliens started airing season 5 on December 21st, but don’t get too excited because it seems that they have just swapped the remaining episodes from season 4 and called them season 5. I posted the season 4 episode guide HERE and you can see that the last few episodes from it (that never really aired under season 4) are being labeled as season 5. No matter, still love the show. And there is one new additional episode added to the season called ‘Secrets of the Tombs.’
UPDATE 07APR2013: Seems that they’ve added a few more episodes; so the Secrets of the Tombs episode is not the final one for Season 5.
1. SECRETS OF THE PYRAMIDS – For thousands of years, pyramids were the largest structures on Earth. The best known were constructed in Egypt and Central America, but others have been found all around the world, including in China, Africa and Indonesia. But what purpose did the pyramids serve? Researchers explore strange similarities between all pyramids, as well as the geographic, strategic and otherworldly connections between these mysterious monumental structures.
2. ALIENS AND COVERUPS – In 1980, two young military men were sent into a UK forest to investigate strange lights. They reportedly encountered a space craft of unknown origin. When one of the men touched it, he claims to have received telepathically a long sequence of binary code, which he later wrote down and translated. The military ordered them to never speak about the incident. Why do such UFO encounters continue to be kept under wraps, and what might they reveal about our ancient past?
3. ALIENS AND ELECTRICITY– Egyptian hieroglyphs depict the use of light bulbs in tombs and secret chambers. And batteries may have been discovered among artifacts from Mesopotamia. Did the Ancients understand electricity, and if so, how did they discover this technology? Might they have had help from extraterrestrials?
4. DESTINATION ORION– Why were ancient civilizations around the world so focused on the Orion constellation? While scientists site many earthly connections, researchers suggest this point in the night sky may have been a so-called Stargate, or entry point, for alien life forms. If extraterrestrials have been visiting Earth for thousands of years, might they have originated from the Orion Nebula
5. THE EINSTEIN FACTOR – Was Albert Einstein a genius? Or was he superhuman? Was his genius ‘of this world,’ or was it ‘otherworldly?’ Is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut theorists believe, of an extraterrestrial connection to the scientific genius of famous historical figures such as Albert Einstein, Galileo, Archimedes, and Aristotle?
6. SECRETS OF THE TOMBS – How is it possible that the burial chambers of distant cultures were so similar in design? Could they have been designed with the help of extraterrestrials?
7. PROPHETS AND PROPHECIES – They were the messengers of divine knowledge and seers who shared visions of the future. For thousands of years, human civilization has been guided by the words and deeds of ancient prophets, but just who–or what–were these prophets communicating with? Might the experiences of history’s prophets be evidence of communication with a heavenly source–or were seers like Elijah and Joseph Smith actually communicating with extraterrestrial overlords? And if so, are there similar prophets at work today?
8. BEYOND NAZCA – Erich von Daniken’s landmark book, Chariots of the Gods, brought attention to the mysterious phenomena of the Nazca Lines. Hundreds of gigantic lines, some in the shape of animals, geometric patterns and even an alien-like being, extend for miles throughout a remote Peruvian desert. Scholars are divided as to who built them, and why. Some Ancient Astronaut theorists believe that the massive markings have an extraterrestrial connection, and perhaps the ancient people of the region created these gigantic figures in tribute to the gods who visited them. And with one of the largest deposits of nitrates in the world–a key ingredient in rocket fuel and weaponry–could Nazca have been a mining operation for advanced beings in the distant past?
9. STRANGE ABDUCTIONS – In 1975, Travis Walton claims to have been abducted and taken aboard a space ship inhabited by extraterrestrial beings. Several people witnessed his encounter and nearly 40 years later Walton’s story of alien abduction, missing time and mind-telepathy manipulation has not wavered. But researchers say that abductions are not a modern phenomenon. The Hebrew Bible is filled with stories of abductions by otherworldly beings. Jonah, Moses, Ezekiel and Enoch all depict what can best be described as physically being taken to other dimensions and then returned. Is it possible that extraterrestrial beings have been abducting humans for thousands of years and if so, might there be an alien agenda behind the phenomena?
10. THE VON DANIKEN LEGACY– Erich von Daniken’s controversial ancient astronaut theory has inspired a worldwide movement.
11. THE VIKING GODS– They were teachers and destroyers. Mighty warriors who blazed across the skies in gleaming chariots and wielded magical weapons that could bring down mountains. Odin, Frey and Thor. The gods worshipped by the Norse Vikings were fearsome and mysterious, but were these beings truly divine, or is there, perhaps, an extraterrestrial connection? The Norse were among the most technologically advanced cultures of the ancient world. They were epic explorers who embarked on oceanic voyages to Africa and the Middle East and even reached North America at least 500 years before Christopher Columbus. Were the Norse guided by powerful gods, or could the super-beings that guided the Vikings have actually been visitors from another planet?
12. THE MONOLITHS– Did ancient monoliths possess advanced, extraterrestrial powers we have yet to understand?
