Why are the vehicles of the different ancient gods so similar?

Many researchers reflect on why there are so many similarities between ancient cultures in different parts of the world. At the same time, scientists believe that the civilizations of Africa, Europe, Mesoamerica and Asia in ancient times developed separately.

Naturally, some single merchants or navigators could from time to time reach “unknown lands”. Just like the Vikings were in North America long before Columbus.

But the Vikings did not have any cultural impact on the local Indian tribes, and the influence of merchants and sailors on other peoples was also very insignificant. Especially in the area of ​​religion.

However, over and over again we find suspiciously similar motifs in the mythologies and images of different peoples, sometimes located at opposite ends of the Earth.

The previous our article described the mysterious “bags” held in the hands of the gods of ancient Sumer, Mesoamerica, and which are depicted on the megaliths of the ancient temple of Göbekli Tepe.

In this article, we will consider the suspicious similarity of the transport on which the ancient gods of different cultures moved. Below is a piece of bas-relief with the museum name “La Venta Stele 19” from an ancient Olmec temple. The Olmec culture originated in what is now Mexico about 4,500 years ago and died out about 3,500 years ago.

Scientists believe that this stele contains the earliest historical image of the famous Feathered Serpent, a deity that had a great influence not only on the Olmecs, but also on many other ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica.

There he was called Quetzalcoatl (Aztecs), Kukulkan (Maya) or Cucumats (Kiche people). In one hand, the Feathered Serpent holds the already known “bag”, placing it on his feet, but his posture is so strange that it seems as if he is sitting, hunched over, inside something cramped with a low ceiling.

And on his head he has something like a helmet. The Feathered Serpent said that he “came from heaven” and brought many great knowledge to people. And among the Indians, he was also associated with the morning star – Venus.

So maybe on that stele the Feathered Serpent is depicted sitting in his transport, on which he “came from heaven”? And this is already a figurine of the Aztec culture with some kind of god, perhaps the same Feathered Serpent, sitting in a similar cramped “cockpit” and, moreover, as if putting his hands on the control panel.

And again, something like a helmet is visible on the head, although of a different “design”.

In Maya culture, the lid of the sarcophagus at Palenque is widely known thanks to the explorer Erich von Däniken . On it, in a very strange mechanism, the Mayan ruler Pacal sits. On his head again some kind of “helmet”, and with one hand he seems to reach for the control lever.

Now let’s move on to New Zealand, which the Maori people settled about a thousand years ago, having moved there from the islands of East Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean.

In Maori mythology, there is the god Purangahua, who moved on a certain flying object called Hawaiki. The legend tells that this god descended from the sky “riding a silver object”. Here is how Purangahua spoke of himself in the legend:

“I come and an unknown land lies under my feet. I come and new skies unfold above me. I come to this earth and this is a peaceful resting place for me. Oh spirit of the planets! The wanderer humbly offers you his heart as nourishment”.

Images of Purangahua can be found in many Maori decorations or ornaments. In the picture below, Purangahua is shown seated in his flying vehicle. In exactly the same position as the god of the Aztecs and also holding onto something with his hands.

Let’s move on to Ancient Egypt. God Hapi was responsible for the floods of the Nile and the harvest, and was also called the lord of fish and marsh birds. He was depicted as a man with blue skin and was sometimes called the “Father of the Gods” and considered the one who keeps the cosmos in balance.

Most depictions of Hapi are unremarkable, but one bas-relief shows him seated in a “figure” of a large snake. In his hands he holds some kind of sticks and two more long “sticks” sticking out of the floor.

If you look at it with a modern look, then again it looks very much like some kind of “cockpit”, and the sticks are the control levers.

Some fans of paleocontact believe that all the ancient images presented above show aliens that flew to Earth, flying in devices that looked like small single-seat helicopters.

Let’s imagine that some savage from a tribe lost in the jungle, who has never seen technology more complicated than a bow and arrow, is shown a helicopter, and then asked to draw it.

Most likely, the savage will draw something rectangular, trying to show the cockpit of a helicopter, and a little man crouching inside. Just like in these ancient drawings.

How is it possible that the Ancient Olmec, Aztecs, Egyptians, and cultures as those in New Zealand share depictions of their gods—who came down from heaven—with mind-boggling similarities?

The history of the development of civilization on Earth is far from understood. There are missing links wherever we look.
