Imagine jumping into a jet-plane that could not only fly you immediately to any location in the world, but could also take you back in time to any period in history. The time is somewhere between 800 B.C and 500 A.D., the place is one of the driest and most desolate locations on earth – the Nazca desert of southern Peru. And what you see next out of your jet-plane window blows your mind – hundreds of thick lines, giant geometric shapes and super-sized figurines depicting animals, birds, fish and even an eery looking humanoid-creature! Being that these intricate geoglyphs were created on such an epic scale with some of the largest spanning multiple football fields in size, it almost seems as if these anomalous ancient works of art were tailor-made to view from thousands of feet up in the air…
The Nazca Lines are some of the most mysterious ancient geoglyphs known to man, and they obviously conjure up many questions like: who made them, how did they make them and why did they make them? Lets start with the how…
HOW WERE THE NAZCA LINES MADE?
1 The designs are shallow lines made in the ground by removing the reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish/grayish ground beneath. Because of its isolation and the dry, windless, stable climate of the plateau, the lines have mostly been naturally preserved. 2 Scholar Joe Nickell states: “By far the most work on the problem of Nazca engineering methods has been done by Maria Reiche (The German mathematician and archaeologist). She explains that Nazca artists prepared preliminary drawings on small six-foot square plots. These plots are still visible near many of the larger figures. The preliminary drawing was then broken down into its component parts for enlargement. Straight lines, she observed, could be made by stretching a rope between two stakes. Circles could easily be scribed by means of a rope anchored to a rock or stake, and more complex curves could be drawn by linking appropriate areas. As proof, she reports that there are indeed stones or holes at points that are centers for arcs.” 3 Maria Reiche, who has studied the Nazca lines for over 50 years, states that “The immense quantity of drawings, each executed with utmost precision, must have taken at least half a generation to make.”
WHY WERE THE NAZCA LINES MADE?
Was it for solar alignment? To track the course of underground water? Researcher and author 4 Anthony F Aveni believed that the lines pointed to water sources. He suggested that the eight hundred miles worth of straight lines map the direction of water sources and the highly advanced irrigation system which the Nazca had produced. Two thirds of the lines seem to follow channels of the irrigation system.
In response to the ancient astronaut theories of the purpose of the Nazca Lines being either a UFO runway or a type of alien airport, author and researcher Dr Michael Heiser states the following… 5 “Either explanation seems to fall short of explaining why these lines are sometimes several miles long, one of them being almost 15 miles long. It would be a pretty inefficient spacecraft if it took 15 miles for it to take off or, in the alternate explanation, if it needed to drag on the ground for 15 miles before it stopped.”
Ok so maybe some of the lines did channel irrigation systems and my guess is that they were probably not landing strips, but what if there were other purposes for them as well? There are many that wonder if there wasn’t a ceremonial or spiritual purpose for the lines. What if the makers of the Nazca Lines made them so as to communicate with what they thought were gods? Finally, this brings us to the who…
SO WHO ACTUALLY MADE THE NAZCA LINES?
While most scholars attribute the Nazca culture alone to making the lines somewhere between 800 B.C and 500 A.D., Author and Researcher Brien Foerster who has authored the book “Nazca: Decoding the Riddle of the Lines,” and who actually lives on the ground in Peru says the following… “Not all of the lines and figures were made at the same time. They were not all made by the Nazca culture. The Nazca were the last of the line and geoglyph builders, but not the first. They were created by two cultures – one, the Nazca people, but prior to the Nazca, the Paracas people who had ELONGATED SKULLS (Emphasis added). They were made over the course of approximately 1000 years, starting at the Pacific coast – at Paracas where we find the ‘Candle Abra,’ down through Palpa and then finally here on the Nazca plateau.”
In closing, I find it absolutely fascinating that Brien Foerster makes a connection between the Nazca lines and the elongated skull culture of Paracas . It’s important to note that DNA analysis of these elongated skulls has recently been done and verifies that the elongation was not just caused by artificial cranial deformation, but rather by genetics. 6 The elongated skulls cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two. Author and researcher Josh Peck states that 7 “The head shape of the Nazca Spaceman (Humanoid figure) seems to be reminiscent of the Star-child skull and could be depicting another type of hybrid between angel and man.”
- Q Is there a connection between the Nazca Lines and the Nephilim that the Bible, the book of Enoch and many other ancient texts describe?
- Q Were the elongated skull people of the Paracas genetically altered by these Watchers in a way that changed their genetics?
- Q Could the Nazca lines then have been made by these Nephilim-hybrids so as to communicate with and/ or honor their sinister masters who came from above?
