200,000 Year Old Statue Found On Moon

WASHINGTON, DC - A noted scientist has just produced proof that the lunar surface was inhabited by intelligent life: a 10-inch angel sculpture embedded in a moon rock.

Geologist Dr. Morris Charles revealed last week that NASA lab workers chipped the angel from one of the rocks brought to Earth by Apollo 11 astronauts 40 years ago, in 1969. Dr. Charles was a NASA scientist himself for 23 years but left the agency in 1987. He still maintains close ties to many of his former colleagues.
“The implications of this figurine are absolutely mind-boggling,” Dr. Charles told reporters. “It means that at one time the moon had an atmosphere conducive to life. And what’s more, it was once home to a sophisticated race of people with a highly refined sense of beauty.”
The angel - a humanoid female with wing-like appendages on her back and long flowing hair - is made of an iron compound found exclusively in the highlands of the moon.
This rules out the possibility that it was dropped by a race of aliens from another planet. It’s been hand polished to a silvery metallic sheen. Based on chemical analysis of the metal, geologists estimate the sculpture to be 200,000 years old which means it was made 170,000 years before the human species appeared on Earth.
It’s been examined by art experts who concur with Dr. Charles’ appraisal of the culture that produced it. “Clearly these beings had a sense of religion that parallels our Christianity. Perhaps they had a Jesus of their own, proving that the important spiritual principles are, in a very literal sense, universal,” said a Washington anthropologist.
Others are not so sure of its religious significance. Dr. Miles Fredericks of New York University countered, “This is just more Christian propaganda. The Sumerians told stories of the Annunaki, winged deities, as far back as 18th century BC. Maybe the Sumerians were visited by these moon beings, who merely modeled the statue after their own image.”
While many ponder the significance of the figure, others are curious about why it has remained a secret for so long. “The artifact has been common knowledge among NASA insiders for years,” said Dr. Charles. “But space agency higher-ups have kept the information highly classified, fearing world-wide panic. It was smuggled out to me by persons who must, for obvious reasons, remain anonymous.”
NASA officially denies Dr. Charles’ allegations. The statue was displayed to photographers and newsmen but is now being held for further study at an undisclosed location.
Astronauts of Antiquity - Zecharia Sitchin has already shown in The Twelfth Planet that the statues of gods and goddesses from Sumer present special helmets with protuberances on both sides (the Middle Ages’s illiteracy turned them into”devil horns”), which perfectly look like the pilots’ headphones; the statues were provided with the SHU.GAR.RA - a term that literally means”that which makes you go far into the Universe”.
Another image discovered in North Israel, dating back to the ninth millennium B.C., represents the sculpted head of a god with a helmet and safety glasses. Also a picture of the goddess Ishtar from her temple in Sumer…

All this suggests to us that the attire …was that of an aeronaut or an astronaut”…

Many drawings on the Sumerian plates show the gods with wings, which were not belonging to the body, but they were accessories of the flight suit, therfore the gods looked like eagles…
This drawing on a Sumerian plate suggests that an Anunnaki / Elohim spaceship is connected to the base on Earth.”The central object … it is more mechanical, more manufactured than natural.Its (( wings )) looks almost exactly like the solar panels which American spacecraft are provided to convert the Sun’s energy to electricity. The two antennas cannot be mistaken. The circular craft … is located between Mars (the six - pointed star) and Earth and its Moon”(Z. Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet)…

The Simpsons covered a similar story in one of their episodes. I guess a shopping center is opening soon on the Sea of Tranquility.

Note the author's name, Erik Van Datiken. Remember Erich von Daniken? If this isn't just another of WWN's fake stories, I'll take religious vows and retire to a hermitage.

Wasn't that on the front page of the National Enquirer a few months back? More people read the Enquirer than any other news source so it has to be true.

Indeed Dexter, of the ‘Chariots of the Gods’ fame. I didn’t know what to make of the story when I read it. If true, the significance is enormous. Not from religious point of view, but from scientific point of view.

However, thanks for pointing out that the originator of the story is Erik von Daniken. That tells me the story is very likely nonsense, not to be taken seriously.

For a while there I thought we have finally found evidence for alien civilization. But alas, it is back to the normal, boring, humdrum world. Yawn.

Indeed not. Reputation is very important. Erik Von Daniken has reputation as a nut. If NASA makes an official pronouncement about the statue, I will believe it. But Erik Von Daniken? No way.

It isn't even a good attempt at a story and the comments about it elsewhwere already indicate believers and converts.

Someone actually went so far as to look up who wrote this? lol
First thing I thought when I read the thread title is someone posted one of their April 1st emails. Didn't look any farther than the 10 inch angel bit.
Funny

I read it out to my hubby, already laughing, and his first response was 'funny, I was just watching newsworld, and they totally missed this story.' lol.

You might be right. I was thinking Dr. Morris Charles looks pretty, too, even in labgear.

What are the odds randomly bringing back some rocks from the moon and they have statues of angels inside them? Does that mean that most moon rocks have statues of anges in them, or the astronauts were lucky?

Why would aliens go through the trouble of creating statues and then hide the statues inside rocks? Why wouldn't they display them in the open?

You are asking humans why aliens would do something?

If it wasn't about the Oliphant inquiry Newsworld would have missed it.

Can anyone say for certain whether this has been debunked? Is there any actual shred of proof that this could be true?

Just about anything could be true but that isn't relevant. What matters is whether it is probably true (which it isn't) so if proof does exist it better be incredibly good and it had better come from a very credible source (which it hasn't).

There could be space giraffes living on the dark side of the moon but it is very unlikely - so unlikely in fact that I can say with absolute confidence that they don't.

The same goes for these statues.

What is being exploited here is the existential fallacy: where a generality is made then by making distinctions the generality is assumed to be true.

For example: All UFOs are space ships, and all spaceships are extraterrestrial, so some UFOs are extraterrestrial.

So, we found statues on the moon, they look like they may have come from earth but they may also have come from somewhere else.

If you were to claim statues existed on the moon you would receive a lot of criticism even from non critical thinkers but when you also say they may have come from earth you cause the reader to accept that the statues were there to start with.

It's a typical trick heavily employed in religion and politics.

I really don't get what your trying to say, besides the fact that this isn't true. So some UFOs are extraterrestrial? If all UFOs are space ships, and all spaceships are extraterrestrial (which they aren't because we send spaceships into space from time to time haha), All UFOs would be extraterrestrial.. but still has no bearing on whether or not this statuette is from earth or not.
And just because it happens to be a symbol of religion doesn't automatically make it a "trick". Do you not think it's almost certain to say life outside of our planet have beliefs of their own? Anyhow. At this point in my life I can say with almost certainty that the mass population have been shielded from many truths. And it is inevitable that we catch a glimpse of things that have been hidden because as hard as our governments and those that are pulling our governments strings try.. no human is perfect and sooner or later mistakes are made.
These people are well aware of this which is why they've spent decades perfecting the art of cover ups.
People don't want to believe that there is anything out there other than their everyday lives, why fix what's not broken right? So we'll shrug off anything that seems the slightest bit wrong or different.
I would like to bet that when good ol' ET finally steps foot on the soil of this Earth one of two things will happen.. The powers that be will snatch em up to study everything they have that will benefit them and cover up that they even existed. Or it'll take nothing short of a petting zoo or mass media event to make people believe it isn't a hoax.
What a world we live in.
