Anyone who has watched Ancient Aliens should know, aliens are definitely responsible. This time on ‘Ancient Aliens’, India’s Sanskrit texts link to aliens.

When noted skeptic Giorgio A. Tsoukalos heard about the potential link between India’s ancient Sanskrit texts, he was initially doubtful. He’s quoted as saying, “It’s unlikely aliens have even been to earth, much less provided technology eons ago.” Ha! Just kidding. His first reaction was to jump out of the barber chair, gather the crew of Ancient Aliens, and hop on a red-eye to India.  As always, Tsoukalos thinks:

Vedas: Ancient Sanskrit, Hindu Scriptures

Deepak Shimkhada, Professor of Hindu Studies, serves as the lead-off hitter for this episode. He says the Vedas, which is the ancient Hindu scriptures, contain worlds of information from the gods. Architecture, science, technology and weaponry were all advanced in ancient India when gods (read: aliens) handed down information.

Earthquake-proof Indian Temples

Dr. Arun Sharma, Former Superintendent of Archaeological Survey of India, serves as the initial tour guide for Tsoukalos. Sharma headed the archaeological dig at the Surang Tila Temple, and says the glue-like substance used as mortar is 20 times as strong as concrete and paper won’t fit between the seams. With this in mind, Sharma suggests aliens gifted advanced building knowledge transcribed in an ancient Sanskrit text known as the Mayamatam. Provided by a god named Mayasura, the Mayamatam has information on this super-gorilla-glue among other things. Naturally, Tsoukalos needed very little convincing about aliens’ influence. On the contrary, however, similar structures such as the Sacsayhuaman in Peru are arguably more sturdy and better constructed.

Maybe Mayasura visited Peru as well? Wait, Mayasura? Mayans were from the Yucatan Peninsula! In other words, Mexico and a few other countries. And “sura” could be “sur,” which means “south.” Guess what’s south of Mexico?! Peru. BOOM.

Sushrate Samhita

The Sushrate Samhita is an ancient Indian medical text that came from an alien named Dhanvantari. Dhanvantari originated from the Milky Way. In other words, it’s an ancient alien medical encyclopedia. It contains a number illnesses and cures related to Ayurvedic medicine (traditional Indian medicine).  For example, a skull found in 2011 with holes in it. Some theorize the Sushrate Samhita was used to conduct brain surgery.

Conversely, it could have just been some form of ancient torture or medical experimentation. It’s as if the ancient astronaut theorists can’t fathom that possibility, and have never heard of The Tuskegee Experiments and Josef Mengele.

Not so fast, Wright Brothers

More from Drama

According to a retired flight instructor named Anand Bodas, the ancient Indian texts provide a framework for aviation. In fact, the Vedic texts have intricate designs for Vimana, which are flying machines. Allegedly, Sanskrit scholar Shivkar Talpade made one in 1895. Moreover, it took flight a several years before the Wright brothers took flight.

Furthermore, an aircraft design engineer named Kayva Vaddadi used the same methods as Talpade to recreate the Vimana design. Immediately thereafter, the model underwent wind tunnel tests. Ultimately the aircraft – to be fair, fabricated with today’s technology – was aerodynamically viable.

Bada-boom, bada-bing, Ancient Aliens is talking spaceships, Robert Oppenheimer, the nuclear weapon, and the Bhagavad Gita. It’s important to realize Oppenheimer once quoted the Bhagavad Gita when he said, “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” As such, Tsoukalos et al. know in their collective hearts that aliens are connected.  Furthermore, the ceiling of one building bears a vague resemblance to the Large Hadron Collider. If that doesn’t convince you, nothing will.

The rest of the episode is nothing but what-if scenarios and doomsday warnings. Despite Vedic texts warnings, we may blow ourselves up.

Next: Aliens created cloud computing

In conclusion, amazing glue, solid architecture, a skull with holes in it, and legends of a flying vehicle. Pretty convincing. In any event, the only possible answer, as always, is aliens.
