The missing-outer space-link that binds.
8 February 2010 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

Interseting documentary in how man evolved on earth over the last 12 to 15 thousand years. Was man actually indigenous to the planet earth or did he come, or was planted, here on earth by aliens from outer space? We get to see ancient mans sudden evolution as an ape like creature fighting off the elements as well as wild animals to become master of the world almost overnight some 15,000 years ago. It's then that man's immediate relative the brutish and ape-like Neanderthal Man disappeared from the face of the earth and was replaced by the far more intelligent Cro Magnom Man. It was the Cro Magnom Man who not only walked upright, unlike the Neanderthal, but had a brain capacity that equaled if not suppresses that of modern man!

The documentary narrated by Rod Serling show us the many unexplained mysteries as well as accomplishments of the ancient civilizations, that in many cases can't be duplicated even today, that can only be explained if an outside force or galactic civilization, like aliens from space, had a hand in creating them. It's suggested that man himself was planted here on earth by aliens to colonize the planet until their return in the very near future!

The fact that since the advent of the Atomic Age UFOs, or alien spacecraft, have made their appearance in such vast numbers, compared to ancient times, that it's most probably a result of the aliens, who's spacecraft are commonly spotted hovering over and monitoring nuclear military instillation's and missile sites, trying to keep their off-springs, the human race, from destroying themselves in a nuclear holocaust! This may very well be the reason that what was considered, by many in the US and Soviet military after WWII, an inevitable nuclear war has never broken out since the atomic bombing of Japan back in August 1945! Not just among the major world nuclear powers but even among third world nations in possession of nuclear weapons!

Not as far fetched or over the top in its prognostications as you may think "The Outer Space Connection" does in fact make a solid case in mans link to an outer space civilization. Since no one in the scientific community could easily, if at all, explain away its basic premise in that man is unique to any living creature on earth because he in fact isn't native to the blue and green planet!

P.S With all the hoopla about the Myan Calender ending on December 21, 2012 with the earth facing total destruction the film "Outer Space Connection" has a different take on it that's is not as dreaded but far more optimistic. Were told at the end of the film that on December 24 (Christmas Eve) 2011 the space aliens who planted us here on earth will came back, by the thousands and in fleets of hundreds of intergalactic spacecrafts, to show us that in fact they are real and our long lost forgotten and distant, in light years not generations, relatives!
