Demonic seduction … hybrid offspring … strange abductions. In cultures throughout the world, there are tales of intimate encounters with otherworldly beings. Could these stories be more than mere mythology? Scientific deconstruction of human genetic makeup has revealed that our origins are not what we once believed. Biologists have determined that early humans mated with several other species of intelligent hominids : Neanderthals, Denisovans, and a third - as of yet unidentified - species may also be represented in our DNA. Is it possible that tales spanning from fallen angels to Greek gods, from medieval incubus and succubus to today's extraterrestrial sexual encounters are all of the same cloth? And if so, is it part of a "conspiracy", a greater agenda? Might examining these experiences provide evidence of extraterrestrial sexual intervention in the remote past and possibly reveal the true nature of mankind's origins?moreless
Earth is home to some 10 quintillion insects. In cultures throughout the world, insects have been honored, feared and even revered as gods. Could these strange creatures that have inhabited Earth for hundreds of millions of years provide a link to extraterrestrial beings? Is it possible that the ancient Egyptians encountered alien beings which had an insect-like appearance? Is the scorpion-tailed locust described in the Book of Revelations some type of advanced alien weaponry wielded by an extraterrestrial being? Might the Ant People that appear in both Greek and Native American mythology really be grey aliens? Is it actually possible that insects are related to beings from beyond our world, and if so, might they have a secret purpose we have yet to discover?moreless
Spiritual leaders known as shamans have healed, protected and advised people throughout history. This episode explores the possibility that these shamans may have communicated with extraterrestrials in order to influence the future of mankind.moreless
Throughout human history, the planet Mars has captured our imagination. Ancient Egyptian astronomers were the first to record the red planet on a chart of the cosmos known as the Senenmut star map. Scholars believe Mars played an important role in Mayan astrology (described in the Dresden Codex). Modern translations of Sumerian and Babylonian origin myths record a cataclysmic event occurring on Mars. Is our fascination with Mars simply because of its striking red color and prominence in the night sky - or might we have a more profound extraterrestrial connection? For nearly 40 years now, probes have been sending information about Mars back to Earth. Photographs of the mysterious planet reveal mountain-like formations known as Twin Peaks and perhaps a strange, humanoid face carved into Martian rock. Has NASA found definitive signs of life that they're intentionally keeping hidden?moreless
Mysterious relics and sealed vaults may have been hidden on purpose and protected by an extraterrestrial source. On every continent there are stories of incredible treasures which have been lost for centuries. Treasures protected by or possessing strange and deadly curses.

On every continent, there are stories of children who "stand out" for their strange abilities and advanced knowledge. These children are said to have knowledge they couldn't have. Many ancient cultures have legends about exceptional children who are the offspring of both humans and the gods. Could the stories be more than mere myth? Is it possible there are children on Earth today who can access their alien DNA - a connection which endows them with special gifts and the power to transform society?moreless
Strange rock carvings from 8,000 B.C., unexplained "sightings" reported in the new world and a frightening anomaly seemingly plaguing the American West.

Could the truth of mankind's origins be found in the fabric, metal, stone and bones of our distant past? And could these mysterious relics really provide us with the ability to access divine or otherworldly power?moreless
Powerful monarchs ruling by divine right. Centuries-old dynasties amassing enormous wealth. And legendary leaders wielding powerful weapons of mass destruction. Is it possible that ancient rulers were, in fact, connected with divine or, some would say, extraterrestrial forces? Ancient Astronaut theorists posit that these great rulers were "chosen" and guided by extraterrestrials - and perhaps shared a common genetic trait, a so-called "leadership gene". And might this gene have been–not a product of genetic evolution–but inherited by mankind from some otherworldly source? Investigating the possible connections between powerful rulers in the past and extraterrestrial forces - and asking the question : was history manipulated by aliens?moreless
Mysterious surgeries performed by early humans, strange beings with miraculous powers and secrets to impart - and a possible cover up–destroying centuries of scientific knowledge.

Raising questions about how humans learned to heal by exploring ancient possibilities involving the human body and amazing new medical breakthroughs and procedures.moreless
He is the evil one, the Prince of Darkness, the ruler of Hell. Satan conjures up horrifying images of a horned beast whose sole purpose is to destroy humanity. Yet there is evidence that the fallen angel we know as Satan may be misunderstood. New interpretations of ancient texts indicate that Satan may have been an extraterrestrial who was more of an ally to humanity than an enemy by passing along knowledge that planted the seed for civilization. Could Satan's reputation as the personification of evil be his punishment for leading early man out of darkness and ignorance? If so, might his evil acts really be expressions of revenge against the human creatures that abandoned him? Or are the devilish deeds associated with Satan part of a grand plan? A series of moral challenges intended to prepare us for our next, and perhaps final... close encounter?moreless
Wondrous wizards... Mysterious sorcerers... And heavenly beings... possessed of unimaginable power. Throughout the ancient world, magic was used for everything from healing to communicating with the gods. But did magic really exist in the ancient times? Not as a form of theater--but as a means of replicating the power of the gods? Do ancient accounts of magic suggest evidence of advanced, otherworldly knowledge? A knowledge given to early humans as a means of helping them unlock their own--some might say "divine"--potential?moreless
The Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia achieved over one hundred "firsts" for human civilization. Advances in writing, agriculture, science, mathematics, medicine, astronomy, transportation, building, military, schools and city planning, all originated in Sumer. The Sumerians credit these achievements to The Anunnaki--giant, winged gods, who are only found in ancient cuneiform texts. Could these gods be more than legend? Is it possible that civilization made sudden, huge advances in development 5,000 years ago as a result of the Anunnaki's presence on Earth? Could the human race have been jump-started or even genetically created by extraterrestrial beings in the remote past? Might the Sumerian texts describing the Anunnaki be proof of this controversial theory? And if so, could we someday reunite with these celestial visitors?moreless
Luminous relics in the shape of human skulls. Otherworldly artifacts believed to harness the secrets of the universe. Are the Crystal Skulls part of an elaborate hoax? Or do they possess a great, perhaps even otherworldly power? The Crystal Skulls are some of the most controversial of ancient artifacts. While there have been literally hundreds of crystal skulls found throughout the world, according to legend, there are only thirteen which are believed to hold an awesome, mystical power whose secrets will be revealed when the skulls come together to form a global grid. Could this so-called "reunion of the skulls" awaken sacred knowledge of the gods? Knowledge that has been hidden from mankind for thousands of years? And if so, will the Crystal Skulls reveal the truth about our extraterrestrial past, or offer us a glimpse into our future?moreless
Reverence for the number three dates back thousands of years, and can still be found today in art, architecture, science, literature, and religion. What is it about this number that continues to fascinate mankind? Could this recurring motif contain a profound message? The ancient Egyptians believed the design of the three pyramids of Giza came from the Gods. Diverse cultures across the world worshipped divine beings that ruled as all-knowing triads. Isaac Newton searched for the secrets of the universe in an ancient tablet that spoke of the power of the number three. Even the language of our DNA is written in a pattern of threes. Could the combination of all the trios and trinities embedded throughout the mythical and religious world suggest that the power of three might somehow connect humanity with divine or, as some would believe, extraterrestrial forces?moreless

Is it possible that extraterrestrial beings have been abducting humans for thousands of years and, if so, why? Travis Walton's claim that he was taken aboard an alien space ship in 1975 has not wavered. He reports missing time and encountering mind-telepathy manipulation. Several people are said to have witnessed his encounter. But Ancient Alien researchers insist that such abductions are not a modern phenomenon, they say that ancient texts are filled with such reports of abductions by otherworldly beings. In the Hebrew Bible alone - Jonah, Moses, Ezekiel and Enoch all depict what can best be described as being physically taken to other places or dimensions and then returned to Earth.moreless
Hundreds of gigantic lines, forming the shapes of animals, geometric patterns and even an alien-like being, extend for miles throughout the remote Peruvian desert. Scholars are divided as to who built them and why. Some Ancient Astronaut theorists argue that ancient peoples created these gigantic figures, which can only be viewed from the air, as a tribute to the "gods" who visited them. Others point out that the area contains one of Earth's largest deposits of nitrates, a key ingredient in rocket fuel and weaponry, raising the question : could Nazca have been an ancient mining operation for advanced beings?moreless
They were the messengers of divine knowledge and seers who shared visions of the future. For thousands of years, human civilizations have 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?moreless
