The Anthills of Orion

All across the American Southwest we find petroglyphs (rock carvings) or pictographs (rock paintings) depicting entities with spindly bodies, large eyes, and bulbous heads that sometimes project antennae. These eerie figures are frequently shown in a "prayer stance," their elbows and knees positioned at right angles, similar to the ant's bent legs.

Do these rock drawings represent a race of Ant People? Do they actually record ancient encounters between humans and an alien species?

Are the creatures truly "alien," like those of the 1947 UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico?

(Via The Anomalist.)






It's commonly assumed that if bodies were actually recovered from the "Roswell crash" then they must be those of would-be explorers from a distant planet. Without addressing the riddle of the "Ant People" (yet!), I'll merely note that I've become increasingly disenchanted with an extraterrestrial explanation for the Roswell Incident. I think it's more likely that we're dealing with a humanoid intelligence native to Earth -- and that the intelligence community was effectively ignorant of its presence until we forced its hand.

(Thanks, Dustin!)

It's quite an interesting story that Gary weaves, and I'm particularly interested to see your take on it all Mac. Keep up the good work.
