Von Daniken includes the story of the Mormons and their flight to safety to the American continent where they buried their metal plates containing the history of mankind from the age of Adam and Eve. Just like the Bible, where God gives instruction to Noah to build a boat that is water-tight, so too does Ether in the book of Mormon get instructions on his boat, and like Noah, says that he doesn't know how to build such a boat.
In the Epic of Gilgamesh we have a flood story and a God giving instruction on how to build a water-tight boat for the upcoming flood. Are these all the same stories? Or is there more than one god(extra-terrestrial) wanting to save their particular group of humans?
Then there's Montezuma's speech (pg 105) where he says, "Both you and I know that our forefathers did not come from this land where we live. They came to this place, led by a great prince from far hence.
Von Daniken has been making his case for extra-terrestrial gods/parents for a long time. This books includes photos from Father Carlos Crespi, a monk who did missionary work among the indigenous people of Ecuador. The people trusted him enough to bring out their treasures of gilded totems showing strange people and beasts on them. Photos of the Voynich manuscript showing a language we have yet to interpret along with drawings of unidentifiable plants and highly elaborate astronomical charts.
Wonderful book, though he does spend too much time debunking his critics, which is basically preaching to the choir who buy his books.
