Archeologists from Chhattisgarh’s State Department Of Archaeology have discovered 10000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in the Charama region of Kanker district in the tribal Bastar region. And if archaeologist JR Bhagat’s verdict on the stunning find is to be believed, they look shockingly similar to the reel representation of these extraterrestrial beings over the years so perhaps there’s truth to the statement that there really are no completely original ideas.
The cave paintings depict large, extra-terrestrial humanoid beings descending from the sky in round objects and interacting with smaller individuals—presumably humans. Most notably evident about them are their lack of clear features, and their noses and mouths are missing. The figures are seen holding weapon-like objects. Bhagat confirms,”In a few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can’t refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men, but humans usually fancy such things.”
Preliminary dating confirmed that the paintings are at least 10000 years old and interestingly enough, the locals of the villages situated above the cave system in which this was uncovered, have an ancient tale of ‘rohela people.’ Otherwise known as small people who used to come from the sky to take away several villagers, never to return.
Bhagat believes that this incredible find might serve as evidence of the paleocontact hypothesis which claims that in prehistoric times Earth was, in fact, visited by members of an advanced alien civilization.
More on the paleocontact hypothesis however:
Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of human cultures, technologies, and religions. A common claim is that deities from most, if not all, religions are actually extraterrestrial in nature, and that such visitors’ advanced technologies were wrongly understood by primitive men as evidence of divine status.Though several people of respectable scientific status including Erich von Däniken, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and Zecharia Sitchin to name a few have popularised this theory, it’s found more traction in bad science-fiction plots than any real scientific study.
Given the sheer magnitude of these findings, naturally, the department is now eager to work with NASA and the Indian National Space Agency to uncover more about these findings. And hopefully, we’ll have more answers soon.
