Rockets capable of destroying entire cities, fire capable of burning underwater and fighter jets that fly without pilots. Know here the Weapons of The Gods.
What if the futuristic weapons we believe we have cultivated in our modern day arsenals are really reinventions of something that has come before? Could we subconsciously be recreating our ancient past?
The Theft of Fire
When we look at fire, we imagine this idea that somehow our ancestors are rubbing sticks together, but each culture always says that fire is a gift from the gods. In native American traditions, quite often it’s fire was stolen from the world above.
In Maori legends, again, we see the theft of fire from the gods. In the Greek legends, it’s Prometheus stealing fire from the gods. How is it that such similar myths exist about fire being given to man by the gods?
According to ancient astronaut theorists, this eerie similarity may actually be evidence that gods, or, perhaps, extraterrestrial beings, really do exist. And, if so, it might also reveal how mankind eventually used fire to create deadlier and more sophisticated weapons.
The Legend of Steel
Where the forging of iron requires a relatively unsophisticated knowledge of metallurgy, the creation of steel is a more complex scientific process. Cultures that were able to obtain steel usually became masters of the world.
In the book of Enoch, we see some type of interaction between celestial beings and human beings. They give us steel. And the legend goes – not only from the Bible and from Enoch, but it goes to Sumerian times also – where the gods had steel.
The notion of metal working being a dark and magical process was so prevalent in the ancient world that in Greek mythology, even Zeus looked upon his son Hephaestus, the god of metallurgy, with suspicion.
The Shield of Achilles
Hephaestus is responsible for making armature for the gods. But the real miracle that he does is for this shield for Achilles. And it’s got the whole universe on it. What’s amazing about this thing is that it’s not just a static shield, it’s alive, this is not something that a human being makes.
The greeks worshiped this divine blacksmith and built monuments to him. But could this mythological being have actually been present in ancient Greece? And if so, might he have been not a God but an ancient alien visitor? In Greek mythology, you conceive of gods as kind of like human beings. And we have lots of literature which deals with a whole range of interactions that human beings can have with gods.
It is very clearly stated that the knowledge for making swords was given directly by the gods. And those gods weren’t figments of our ancestors’ imagination, but they were physical beings.
Greek fire, it was the most devastating weapon of the time and it was said to have been given to Constantine by angels.
In one battle, Byzantium was attacked by 1,800 Persian ships only 15 escaped. All the others were destroyed by the so-called Greek fire. And prince Igor who attacked Byzantium in the year 941 A. D. attacked with a fleet of 1,000 ships. Only ten ships made it home.
But perhaps even more astounding than the incredible power of Greek fire is the fact that scientists have not been able to reproduce it even after 1,600 years. Scientists have been trying to identify what Greek fire is, for decades, if not centuries. No one has come up with a satisfying answer.
The Sword of Joan of Arc
When Joan of Arc was arrested and brought to what we now know of as her condemnation trial, her inquisitors were determined to get information about her sword. Her inquisitors were obsessed about finding out about her sword and that is because Joan of Arc sword was reputed to have legendary power, divine power.
Joan claimed that her voices, her angelic voices, led her to this sword. She said to have found it, as it was, hidden behind an altar dedicated to Saint Catherine de Fierbois. It is said that the sword itself was forged by the archangel Saint Michael and that whoever possessed it was invincible. And that was certainly true when Joan wielded this sword, carried it with her into the battle of Orleans. Which was the decisive battle, which allowed them to put King Charles VII on the throne of France.
Could Joan of Arc really have been given her invincible sword by extraterrestrials who had an interest in the future of France? Ancient astronaut theorists believe such a thing is not only possible, but likely.
Preah Pisnokar’s Sword
In Cambodian mythology, Preah Pisnokar is the son of a human man and a woman who came from the sky. The stories say that he is brought to the sky world where he is taught the technology of the gods, and some have credited him as being the architect behind the world’s largest religious shrine, Angkor Wat, which sits just north of the Tonle Sap lake.
But in addition to magnificent structures, Preah Pisnokar was also said to have fashioned a sword that made him invincible in battle. In the Cambodian legend, he’s been credited crafting a sword as thin as a feather and able to cut stone. And it’s reported that he could use this to cut a ceramic jug so finely down the middle that the water only ran out when the two halves fell apart.
According to legend, Preah Pisnokar threw his mighty weapon into the Tonle Sap lake when it grew too weak to be of use to him anymore, much like Excalibur was given back to the lady of the lake in the story of King Arthur. But how does a sword grow weak? According to ancient astronaut theorists, the blade had lost its power.
