"Chariot of the Gods" was written neatly 50 years ago and was the first book I read to discuss the possibility of visits to Earth by extraterrestrials. I picked up the book in an Airport Bookstore just prior to my flight to Vietnam in January of 1969. I finished the book before we arrived in country and was hooked! Von Daniekan's writing style, observations, and analysis of the evidence used by mainstream science anchor theology to explain the presence of artifacts, writings and other materials, coupled with his alternative explanations and proofs were not only plausible, but also down right convincing. His writing style is conversational and non threatening. He provides the facts and asks thw reader to draw their own conclusions. To say this book was controversial in the late 1960s and early 1970s is an understatement! The amazing thing is that many of his early conclusions have gained wide acceptance with millions of people. Ancient Astronaut Theory is, in my opinion, no longer fringe science and we have Erich to thank for it!! I will leave it to you the reader to uncover the details of his findings and, if you like read his other 30 or so books on this topic to reach your own conclusions. I recommend this book to readers with an open mind and for those of you, such as myself, who are based on the evidence, not sure that main stream science and theology has got it right. I think those of you who take the time to read Von Daniekan will enjoy his work!
I find it odd that humans are the only animal on Earth with no real natural place to lay their heads at night.
Human's are the worst suited animals for their environment.
Yes, this book is a good place to begin your own research. It's loaded with interesting facts and photos of places
that mainstream archaeology really doesn't talk about.
And even if you don't believe the conclusions of Mr. Von Daniken, the book is still a fun read.
If you have NetFlix the movie version of this book is currently being streamed. It's interesting.
The film was made in the early 1970's and looks and sounds like it, if you know what I mean. It just has that 70's feel...
My wife and I really enjoyed it.
