In this article we will be looking at the recent events regarding the Nazca lines theory. A recent report has pointed out that a sandstorm has revealed a few more lines only adding to the overall mystery…
The Nazca Lines Theory
Before we jump into this topic I thought it only right if we cover the history of this subject first (it’ll be short I promise you!).
The The shallow etchings of the Nazca lines are thought to have been made by Indians over two thousand years ago. They dug into the stone surface to reveal white soil below – this is what makes up the Nazca drawings.
Now their purpose is the real mystery here – nobody knows what they were built for!
Some scientists believe they make up a calender whilst others say they make up a map to follow underground water sources.
Ufologists (like myself) prefer to believe that these lines make up some sort of runway for ancient alien races. When viewed from above you can see why so many people subscribe to this idea!
Erich von Däniken is the man that is credited with the alien Nazca lines theory. It was his idea that visitors from far away galaxies used to use this area to land and take off again.
He thought these landings were what caused the initial lines and markings in Nazca but then the aliens stopped visiting.
Primitive man could not understand why the beings from the stars had disappeared so suddenly and began etching more lines and pictures into the stone to try and entice them back.
So you see Erich proposes that the pictures themselves were never made by the aliens – they were made by us in an attempt to draw these strange ‘gods’ back to earth!
More Nazca Lines Revealed
Recently a pilot was flying over the Valley of El Ingenio in the Nazca plains and he noticed a few new additions when he looked down.
There were huge new drawings that had been completely unearthed by recent sandstorms. Pilot Eduardo Herran and researcher Gómez de la Torre spotted a 196 ft-long snake, a camel or llama and an unidentified bird as they traveled over the area.
They were found in the same area that already housed geoglyphs of a dog, a hummingbird, a condor and a monkey.
These ‘pictures’ are a lot different than the geoglyphs located close by in a separate area. These tend to be sort of spiral pattern based and geometric shapes.
The emergence of these new diagrams have started up the engine on the Nazca lines theory once again. As I pointed out above I tend to stray more towards alien activity as a solid theory but others are not so sure.
Spiritualists seem to now think that the Nazca lines are something to do with the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. They also think the spiral diagrams could well of been a labyrinth used for meditative walking.
The idea of water keeps on raising it’s head in certain theories – the hummingbird geoglyph only appears in the summer following heavy rainfall!
What are your thoughts and beliefs on the Nazca lines and do you think there are more strange diagrams buried deep beneath the sand?
