Dumbass Podcast #2: Ancient Aliens Part 1

Keywords: aliens, ancient alien theory, conspiracy, historical

So, for my second episode of the Dumbasses Guide To Knowledge podcast, I decided to go over the material from my first article on ancient aliens.  Consider this to be the newly revised and updated version of that article, now with accompanying audio.

I think it turned out alright.  Take a listen and judge for yourself:

Episode 2: Ancient Aliens Part 1

I won't do all the ancient alien shows in a row.  I'll intersperse them with my other articles.  But I'm pretty happy with the way that my articles on this subject have turned out so I'll keep on coming back to it.

Anyway, here's the show transcript:

The Evidence For Ancient Stone Cutting

Keywords: aliens, ancient alien theory, conspiracy, historical

My analysis of the Ancient Aliens television show so far has garnered the most attention of anything that I've written.  My thanks to everybody who's written in to encourage me in my efforts, and even to the people who've challenged me in the comment sections.  I love all the feedback, even when it doesn't feed my ravenous dumbass ego.

I figured that it was high time that I rolled up my sleeves and tackled the next segment of the Ancient Aliens evidence show.  This is my fifth article sequentially analyzing the show itself, and I've written several other related articles.  If you're interested in seeing everything I've written on the subject, click on the "ancient alien theory" keyword above.  Click here to watch the show, and you can decide for yourself whether I'm being fair in my analysis.

In this segment, we'll be talking about the art of ancient stone cutting, and the claims made by proponents of Ancient Aliens.

I would like to give special thanks to Yannis Deliyannis, a historian who has spent over a decade looking at Ancient Alien claims.  I've mentioned Yannis' blog before, Chronicon Mirabilium, where he looks at ancient anomalous celestial phenomena and mysterious history.  Yannis was nice enough to take the time to answer some of my questions and point me to some great resources that really helped me put this article together more quickly than would have otherwise been possible.

I would also like to thank Susan Johnston, archaeologist and anthropologist at George Washington University.  Professor Johnston is the lecturer in a lecture series called "Myths and Mysteries in Archaeology", check out
this podcast episode from Modern Scholar where she discusses archaeology and her new course.  She was nice enough to take the time to talk with me over email and help me to consider different perspectives from which to tackle the claims that I've been looking at.

But now let's get into the meat of the matter.
