5.10 – The von Däniken Legacy (4.5.13)

“A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind.”

– Robert Oxton Bolt

A young man’s spiritual journey. A controversial bestseller. And a scientific theory that threatened to change the world. Just what are the facts behind Erich von Däniken and Ancient Astronaut Theory? For more than 40-years, his books have sold over 65 million copies worldwide. He is a hero to some, and a heretic to others – but Erich von Däniken’s controversial theories have captured the attention of the world and ignited a movement known as Ancient Astronaut Theory. His exhaustive search for the truth of mankind’s otherworldly origins have started to gain acceptance with a small but growing number of Ancient Astronaut Theorists – men and women who have expanded, and at times refined, von Däniken’s findings. Did Ancient Astronauts really come to Planet Earth? And, if so, what was their purpose? And perhaps even more important – will they come again? [11]

INTRODUCTION [11a]

A young man’s spiritual journey…

“I was a boy, 16 years old, when I said, ‘This is not God. What are we talking about?’”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

…A controversial bestseller…

“I was mesmerized by it. I couldn’t put it down.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

…And a scientific theory that threatened to change the world.

“Everything was turned upside-down by Erich von Däniken.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Just what are the facts behind Erich von Däniken and Ancient Astronaut Theory? What were the divine inspirations…

“The ancient Egyptians did build the pyramids with the assistance of the Guardians of the Sky.”

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

…the bizarre revelations…

“We’re just starting to rediscover ancient technology that did exist thousands of years ago.”

Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

…and the shocking conclusions that were too incredible to be ignored?

“Even if there is a chance in ten million that he is right, then everything changes.”

Robert Bauval (Egyptologist),
(Author, The Egypt Code),
(Author, Secret Chamber Revisited),
(Co-Author, Black Genesis)

“We have been visited, and these visitors will return to Earth again.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history, and if so, what does this say, not only about mankind’s past but about its future?
