Researchers from the international Past Global Changes (PAGES) project write in the journal Nature Geoscience that they have identified an unprecedented, long-lasting cooling in the northern hemisphere 1500 years ago. The drop in temperature immediately followed three large volcanic eruptions in quick succession in the years 536, 540 and 547 AD (also known as the Common Era CE). Volcanoes can cause climate cooling by ejecting large volumes of small particles - sulfate aerosols - that enter the atmosphere blocking sunlight.

The most popular theory is that human knowledge, religion, and culture came from extraterrestrial visitors in ancient times. Ancient astronauts have been widely used as a plot device in science fiction, but the idea that ancient astronauts actually existed is not taken seriously by most academics.

Once again I give you absolute proof that all you have ever been taught is either the lies of a fool or a deciever or both. And these are those that most people follow. There are more things under heaven an d hell than are written in your high school science books. What if you are large beings that had large creatures. Large amorphous creatures that let's say helped you to build your giant constructions. Some thing that was like our plow horses/house pets. What would you keep them in? Espesually if you lived forever or thousands of years?
