The idea that aliens came to Earth a long time ago and influenced history is not all that implausible. If scientists who are SF fans love Staragte SG-1, they would love to see it happen in real life. What do you think?

As I mentioned in the other thread, I think it is reasonably possible. Even the bible indirectly supports this in several parts within the old testament. Also, in the new testament in which Jesus ascends to heaven after his resurrection before eye witnesses. Some say a spaceship took him up in the same way that Enoch and Elijah was. Not saying that is how it happened. But it coincides with what other ancient religions believe in regards to alien intervention in their histories.

What do you think of aliens and mythology creatures? Could dragons have been there?

Not sure if aliens had anything to do with making dragons. All I know is that they have been mentioned in ancient writings in just about every world culture. Maybe they were a breed of dinosaur that survived extinction.

See Dragon's World: a fantasy made real. What do you think or other creatures like Harpies or mermaids and genetic engineering?

Are ancient aliens good for story telling?

It isn't the subject that makes for good storytelling, it is the person telling the story. So, to answer your question directly, yes ancient aliens can be a good element in any kind of story.

How about Stargate SG-1? How does one make ancient aliens believable for skeptical SF fans?

What ancient alien thing do you think inspired Hell?

I don't see any evidence for ETs having ever visited our ancient ancestors. And even if you could prove beyond reasonable doubt that ancients were given advanced knowledge or help building structures, why assume ETs? Why not, say, time travellers?
Maybe technologically superior humans lived (or still live) beneath the surface.
Why does it have to be aliens?
It's all moot, though. There is no evidence of to support these beliefs.

Man in the High Castle
You mean that show? Image has pretty much my thoughts on it. I'm willing to admit it's not an impossibility, but I have my doubts.

Tsoukalos' haircut convinces me there may well be something extraterrestrial in his ancestors...

The idea of Ancient Aliens is plausible, and if done right, like maybe Adjustment Bureau, makes for a great story. Unfortunately I don't think the folks who produce the TV show are in the business of putting forth scientific ideas (and making money secondarily by presenting info). They seem to be in the business of selling shows and making money foremost. The first few shows were thoughtprovoking, but then they started using AA to explain everything, including I think Bigfoot. Then they lost me.
