There Can be LOTS of Other Explanations!,
This review is from: Chariots of the Gods: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past (Paperback)
This is a worthwhile book to read. The author did some pretty good collecting, and his theories are tantalizing, to say the least. It is a shame that he had to repeatedly ruin some good information with the single phrase "There can be no other explanation."
He repeated this phrase throughout the book. Each time I saw it, I cringed. This phrase tries to cut off debate, stifles analysis, and generally hurts the credibility of the entire work.
When people are so convinced of their own position that they try to suppress any information to the contrary (even rhetorically), they are degenerating to the level of the "Thought Police" - or worse.
Sorry Herr von Daniken, you blew it.

Sir, I have been following ancient alien theorist for a long time. It is brutally obvious that he was right and you have know idea what your are talking about. Eric Von Daniken is right on the money. If you look at the age of the ancient cities and the artifacts that have been found since you read and even since the book was written "There can be no other explanation." I hope you have read more books on this subject and also watched the shows that the History, Science and other channels have financed to find out more on Ancient Aliens, you will see the Daniken was right. Greg.

Eric von Daniken is not in search of chariots of the Gods but he IS God himself

Gregg, If you will actually read what I said, you will see that I never disagreed with von Danniken. I just took exception to his constant use of the statement "There can be no other explanation." Even though his explanations are tantalizing and possibly even correct, there are still LOTS of other possible explanations.
