Naga (Siriusly)

"... the imaginative power of the old storytellers was so incredible that the books of contemporary writers of science fiction seem banal by comparison. So it must be that the ancient storytellers had a store of things already seen, known, and experienced ready at hand to spark off their imagination!" -- Erich Von Däniken, author, 1968

"To me the most exciting speculation is the idea that extraterrestrials have indeed visited this planet in the past, which is what deductive logic would dictate." -- Tom Van Flandern, astronomer, 1995

"They came from outerspace -- and posed for portraits." -- Erich Von Däniken, author, December 3rd 2002

Two possibilities. Either (1) the Indians and the Greeks and the Jews and the Dogon were conspiring with one another in one mass hallucination spanning several millenia (using time machines obviously since the history and art is from different time periods), or (2) Nagas (aka Mermen aka Nommo aka Pelasgians) were (are?) real and came from the star Sirius. Since I don't believe in mass hallucinations, time travel, or global conspiracy theories, the latter is the most logical belief.
