Our planet holds the answers to secrets and mysteries that many men of science have been trying to solve. The earth is the only surviving witness and learned men can now only gather evidence and hypothesize about the probable origin and story behind each of the worlds wonders.
Ancient alien theorists like Erich von Daniken firmly believe that extraterrestrials once inhabited the earth. Daniken, who has published several books about them, also believe that these beings helped build the earliest civilizations on our planet. Those who support this theory claim that religious manuscripts and those baffling formations serve as pieces of evidence.
Here are five examples of those evidence:
The Nazca Lines

Stretching more than 50 miles across the extremely dry Nazca desert in Peru, lies these ancient series of designs called geoglyphs. These geoglyphs are composed of approximately 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures, and 70 biomorphs (plant and animal designs). Archaeologists said that the lines were created by the Nazca people between 300 B.C. and 800 A.D.

Whats amazing about these geoglyphs is that they can only be seen from above. Researchers from the University of Dresden found out that the site has a strong magnetic field and has high electrical conductivity. Ancient alien theorists said that these geometric shapes worked as guides for the alien spacecrafts and the lines served as runways.
