How did humanity surpass the test of time? Did we make it on our own, or were we in fact guided by intelligent extraterrestrial beings who were willing to help us grow and prosper in their own image?

According to numerous legends and beliefs, the “White Gods“ once came to Earth and helped humanity develop and thrive by offering knowledge in many ways.

Quetzalcoatl is considered to be one of the first “white gods“ to visit our planet. He was one of the most important Gods from ancient Mesoamerica and was also known as “Kukulkán” to the Mayans, “Gucumatz” to the Quichés of Guatemala, and “Ehecatl” to the Huastecs of the Gulf of Mexico.

Based on Mesoamerican folklore, Quetzalcoatl is the one who created the world and all of mankind, and was regarded as the god of wind and rain. He is also known for structuring art and culture and was looked upon as the organizer of society.

Since 1200 CE in Central Mexico, he was considered the god of learning, agriculture, science, and arts. He was the patron god of merchants, as he managed to discover corn with the help of a giant red ant who led him to a mountain packed full of grain and seeds. Legends named this entity, Quetzalcoatl, or the “God of Dawn”. This is one of the reasons why he is believed to be from a far-away planet.

Keep in mind that according to Maya paintings and sculptures, many structures arose during this period and strongly resembled spaceships from the 21st century. Many images representing the gods showed similarities to what astronauts look like nowadays.


It is believed that Quetzalcoatl burned himself and vanished into the skies towards the planet identified today as Venus. Could this be interpreted as an extraterrestrial being fulfilling its mission on Earth and quickly vanishing through the skies to reach new planets in need of guidance?

The writer Robert Marx has written broadly about the concept of “white gods,“ after he came to the conclusion that they are present in almost every indigenous culture in America.

After his journey in South America, the British writer Harold Wilkins also came to the conclusion that a vanished white race occupied all of South America in ancient times, helping the indigenous people cultivate food, and build up pyramids along with other large structures that would otherwise be impossible to build considering the lack of knowledge and tools during that period. He also claimed that Quetzalcoatl was from Atlantis.

Sharing his beliefs, some ancient astronaut and UFO writers have suited that the “white gods“ were actually extraterrestrial beings. Peter Kolosimo believed that the myths of Quetzalcoatl had support, in fact he stated that the legends actually described a full race of white men who were born in spaceships and migrated to Atlantis; after the city was destroyed by water, the remaining white men moved to the Americas where they were treated like “white gods“ by the “primitive earth – dwellers.“
