"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 watched the documentary series "Codes and Conspiracy" episode "Ancient astrounats" and that got me to buy this book. The theories in the book are indeed unsual and they do make a lot sense. The authors interpretations of ancient ruins, images and legends from all over the world makes sense, and I can see that there is a possibility that things did occur in the way the author portrays in this book.
But, there is a lot "what if" questions in this book.
If von Daniken could back up his intriguing theories with hard, concrete evidence, we would have to rewrite our history. The theories are both interesting and intriguing, but, "where is the evidence"?
