Philip Coppens Of 'Ancient Aliens' Passes Away
UPDATE: We can now confirm that Philip Coppens has indeed passed away. Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, friend, colleague, and fellow Ancient Aliens commentator, confirmed the sad news on his official Facebook fan page hours ago. â€śPhilip Coppens has moved on to the next level. The transitionary period between this life and the reincarnation of the next IS heaven,â€ť Tsoukalos wrote.
Philip Coppens, commentator on The History Channelâ€™s Ancient Aliens: The Series, has reportedly died.
Hundreds of â€śRIPâ€ť messages have poured in on the official Facebook page of Philip Coppens, the author and investigative journalist best known for his work in the fields of ancient history and paranormal sciences.
News of Coppensâ€™ death has yet to be confirmed by major news outlets, and our own emails to the author and his colleagues have yet to be returned. 2012 saw a number of death hoaxes started on social media websites like Facebook, so we must stress that Coppensâ€™ death is an unconfirmed report at this time.
However, his declining health in recent months lends some credibility to the potential of his untimely death. Coppens regularly uses his Twitter and Facebook accounts, though has done so less and less in recent weeks, primarily updating fans on his condition. â€śMy fourth week in hospital is here today. Please keep praying for my recovery,â€ť he wrote on December 22.
According to Coppensâ€™ Facebook, he has been hospitalized in Los Angeles since November 25, and was diagnosed on December 13 with angiosarcoma, a rare cancer that is often fatal especially if it manifests in the liver.
Coppens remained positive to the end, his final blog post on December 16 reflecting his characteristic thirst for arcane knowledge, gratitude to his loved ones, and his simple, overall philosophy regarding the meaning of life:
â€śOver the last few weeks, I have come to realize you have to be very specific about picking such mottos, for in my case, I remain convinced that this knowledge will indeed give me MY future. And insights into life, its value and especially its magical qualities, in the hope that with only a few days before December 21, people, through choice, will embrace a positive change in their life and travel onwards to the next level of their mission, which is the only reason why we have chosen to incarnate here on this lovely, blue water planet.â€ť
Philip Coppensâ€™ death is still unconfirmed, so donâ€™t start hashtagging just yet. We will update this post as soon as we know more.

I was sadden to learn of the death of Philip "Filip" Coppens. He was probably best known for his appearances on the History Channel (Ancient Aliens). Coppens received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Amsterdam. He was a gentleman, a scholar, and the author of several books. While we may no longer have Filip, we have his words.

@Gghost : There are MANY things you can do, actually.
Most of them are preventative, like quick sucking down rotten,
putrid animal flesh (yes -- it IS -- what do you think "curing" means/does),
especially at high-quality food product locations like McDonald's, et al.
I won't bother saying more than that because most people already
can't handle the truth, and don't want to, and choose not to.
More Clorox for the gene pool.

btw -- Someone who knows what they're doing needs to fix this site.

They are being cut off by several characters at the right margin.
Probably a CSS issue, or something like that.

Unfortunately, with all of the CRAP that is spewed on this site on a regular basis, which greatly undercuts its credibility and such, how are we to even believe (or 'know') within a reasonable doubt, much less a shadow of a doubt, if this report is real, or some hoax, or simple bullshit, or not, as well.
I often wonder why I bother coming here and reading this stuff anymore. It's more often depressing and irritating than otherwise, for the reasons mentioned above.
Does anyone know of another site that is "better" and what I thought this site was until I discovered otherwise?
RIP, I guess.
