"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!
Von Daniken gave the world something to think about. It would be truly vain of us to believe that we are the only intelligent beings in the universe.
the photos alone will stimulate conversation, and perhaps some more thought as to where our place is in our universe.
That is what Erich von Daniken wants. That's it. He doesn't want you to believe in aliens, he doesn't want you to think that God is an astronaut, none of that.
This book should be required reading for any archeologist in the field today. This may be dismissed as rampant speculation but at least this book IS speculating about pieces of history that modern science would sooner forget even exist.
If you have the slightest interest in history and have ever wondered about what your ancestors experienced and recorded that is being shoved under the rug because it poses impossible questions to answer, then read this book.
Because it WILL make you think.
