Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Whether one believes that flying saucers should be of intense interest to the scientific community or are just so much bunk it is difficult to deny that UFOs are prominent in soe of the most widely-held and significant myths of our times. In this provocative and engaging work, Ted Peters does not seek to prove or disprove the hypothesis that extraterrestrials are visiting Earth; rather he explores ideas about UFOs and extraterrestrial life as major cultural phenomena fraught with implications for science, politics, and -most of all- religion. Peters takes a scholarly but good-humored approach, never yielding to the admonitions of "true believers" who embrace unsubstantiated and oftentimes wishful ideas, or to archskeptics whose typical critical thinking and reliance on data sometimes lapse when the topic is UFOs.

Drawing on first hand interviews as well as highly publicized reports of the contactees of the 1950s and the abductees of the 1960s and beyond Peters finds remarkable similarities between UFO and (primarily Christian) religious experiences. God's Chariots is astonishingly relevant today given the widespread propagation of "ancient astronaut theory" with its rapidly expanding claims that extraterrestrial visitation accounts for human biological and cultural evolution and can "explain" pyramids, Stonehenge, great scientific discoveries, artistic achievements, and just about everything else worthy of note. Could it be that ancient astronauts erected the statues on Easter Island? Could it be that they introduced airplanes to the ancient Egyptians and built pyramids around the world? Could they have influenced the work of Michelangelo, Beethoven, and Jules Verne? Could they have influenced the rise or fall of Nazi Germany, or the saga of America's Wild West?

Picked by my book club. It's a very tough read. I ended up speed reading several chapters.
It's going to be a very interesting book club meeting this month as the author is expected to be there.
