    so you are saying that the paintings are untrue just because they are youtube ?

    well you could prove it to yourself by looking up the paintings otherwise couldn't you ?

    you'll find no difference;)

    Only to those who believe that the images are of aliens but to everyone else those images are not aliens at all.

    Some pictures that artists have drawn implicate otherwise cosmic...

    Regardless of the fact that artists could have drawn it with that in mind it doesent discount the fact that its just a drawing. Also alot of those paintings were wishful thinking but I had seen two or three that is no doubt depicting something alien-like.

    All of my kids have drawn pictures that look VERY much like those. They are both - your "aliens" and my kids artwork - nothing more than the result of imaginations.

    In fact, my oldest (when he was about 6 or 7) drew one of me with a halo and fire and smoke coming from my back. He said the halo was because I was good and the fire/smoke was a jetpack, he said, because I moved fast. Other people would have claimed it was an alien if he had drawn it on a wall in a cave. :shrug:

    If all paintings and drawings were literal, there wouldn't be such a thing as interpretive art.

    A few of them are quite randomly placed or not apart of the theme portrayed by the art but I suspect it may be like something fun thrown in there as a bonus like what some video games do. Maybe it was something talked alot about then as well not to give any merit to the idea they were actually drawing aliens in real time or even believed in it.

    So things darting around in the skies were commonplace then, so much so that it wasn't even worthy of documenting, except in a few paintings here and there as a side note?

    Much more likely they were added as embellishments. Don't you find it odd that those flying objects are found just in religious paintings? Perhaps they aren't referred to directly because you'd expect angels and such to be in the background of such a setting.

    it seems people are uncomfortable with this thread

    why though ? I wonder

    unlike photo's

    paintings cannot be faked as far as their content is concerned

    paintings are what they are

    and by people that have NO compunction to depict what they know or see

    People of the forum: wake up and smell the roses. Aliens are just a facade created by certain governments to create new weapons, New airplanes, and even experiment with the genetics of animals and even Humans Beings.
    If they us to believe about aliens they have no regulations of whatever they want to do, without regulations, all experiments are dirt cheap.
    And this is reality.

    Implicate is the key word there. That "implication" is drawn by those who are looking at the image not the ones who painted them. I am addressing those paintings made long ago not those of recent history.

    hmm...

    so why would the " painters " or artists include suggestive subjects that were beyond the thinking of the time

    surely the subjects were based on what was happening at the time

    which culturaly is what artists do

    dipict what is going on in society at that time

    They look like stylized comets. I bet they thought comets were vehicles for angels or some such shit.

    Again it is you that interprets what is on any painting and just because you see a "alien" doesn't mean everyone does or even that the painter saw one either. Perhaps the object was just part of the artists imagination, ever consider that? Objects can be perceived as many things but since we cannot actually speak to the artist that painted those objects we cannot know for sure what they were painting from, their imaginations or from seeing things as you suggest. :shrug:

    your " bet " is irrelevent

    the thing is , is that the paintings depict flying objects with beings in them

    and there are many of them and even in biblical paintings
