Did aliens build the Voortrekker Monument?

2011-09-29 12:20
It was with great excitement that I read on Channel24 the other day that aliens have now officially been discovered.

Apparently, the Mayans have had actual contact with a race of "dark-skinned extra-terrestrials". A launch pad has been discovered, and new chambers have been opened up in old Mayan structures. This discovery, along with fresh translations and many other details is now being released on video just in time for the end of the world in December 2012.

This is fantastic news, not only for the guys who are going to market this video, but also for alien-watchers all over the planet. I can imagine that, when this news reaches communities like Nieu-Bethesda and McGregor - they wouldn’t know about it yet because their computers are very slow - it would cause quite a stir.

Just recently I read, in a paperback called The Book of Destiny, by a real Maya (or a descendant of real Mayans) with the mysterious, vaguely Spanish-sounding name of Carlos Barrios, that the fate of the world rests on the discovery of the last of several crystal skulls with magic properties which have been hidden by the ancient Mayans. It's a pity, since so much hinges on these discoveries, that the ancient Mayans didn’t bother to leave a map. I mean, they were pretty accurate about everything else, even up to pinpointing the exact date when the world will end shortly before Christmas next year. That will sure save us a lot of Christmas shopping.

Too good to be true

I believe there are many more such discoveries waiting to be made. I, for one, believe that the Mayans were not the only ancient civilization to have had contact with extra-terrestrial beings. Somebody must have built those gigantic pyramids in Egypt! And what about the Voortrekker Monument?

The massively big scale, the intricacy of the design, the way it was built so that a ray of sunlight fell on an old object of worship at a certain time of day, all point towards serious alien intervention. I mean, those guys were just simple farmers! Up until the time when they supposedly built the Monument, their most technologically advanced activities were cutting biltong and making potjiekos! Then, suddenly, there was this leap forward, and the next moment they had agriculture, a language all their own, and Sanlam! It was too good to be true!

I, for one, cannot wait to see this video about the Mayans. It's high time someone did a similar video about the Afrikaners. Why should those buggers in South America get all the attention? Our tourist industry also deserves a break, demmit!
