Alexander And The UFO

Keywords: historical, ancient alien theory, aliens, link

I just came across this fascinating article when looking up the claim that Alexander The Great encountered a group of UFO's:

The story is that Alexander came across a group of "flying shields" during the siege of Tyre.  The story apparently originated with Frank Edwards, who I've run across before when looking for the source of a story about a psychic detective

The guy never bothered to list any of his sources, and I get the feeling that at least half the time he just pulled stuff out of thin air.  That certainly seems to be the case here, because there's absolutely no historical account that backs up Edwards' story as he described it.

It still amazes me how many of the stories and claims that I've looked into are based on absolutely nothing.  When I first started writing this blog I expected that most such stories would at least have some kernel of verifiable truth that has been taken out of context and exaggerated beyond all recognition.

But contrary to my naive expectations, it seems like a good deal of the time, perhaps even most of the time, there's just nothing there.  Somebody pulled the story right out of thin air, and that's all there is too it.

It makes the whole endeavour just a little bit anti-climactic.  But I guess that's the way things go.
