Mythical Wednesday: Gold; precious metal or alien attraction?

ghostsIn the movie COWBOYS AND ALIENS (yes it’s a movie), the MC discovers that aliens are mining for gold in Arizona desert in 1873. In the movie BATTLEFIELD EARTH, the reason aliens conquered Earth is because of our gold supply.  Crazy movie plots, or could it be based of off something else?

There is a theory among some alien enthusiasts that we have been visited in the past not to be experimented on, but for our precious metal supply of gold. In ancient Egypt, gold is considered to be the ‘skin of the gods’, and was heavily associated with Ra. Only kings were allowed to adorn themselves with gold, as they were considered to be the offspring of gods. Yellow to the ancient Egyptians represent all that is eternal and indestructible, so it’s very easy to see how they would associate the metal with their deities.

In Mesopotamian mythology, there were a race of beings called the Anunnaki who came to earth and had servants called Igigi. When the Igigi revolted, the Anunnaki were forced to create a new race – Mankind. Man was to be used to do all the labour for the Anunnaki, but what exactly would this labour be? Mining?

What would they need it for?

Gold is chemically inert, which explains why it never rusts. It also happens to be an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Something aliens might need to construct their advanced technology.

The Golden Sun Disk of Mu was said to be a ‘scientific instrument, and the secret of its power came originally out of the dim past in the time of the Elder Race.’ Here again is another reference of an older race.

Whatever the connection on thing is clear, gold is valuable commodity, whether you live on this planet, or just visiting.
