Published in 1969, this is the first book to popularize alien interactions on earth which started at least as long ago as the Ice Ages. Based upon archeological analysis of pyramids, cave paintings, Mayan temples and other evidence, Chariots of the Gods presents the case that aliens in their spaceships are and have been integral to the earth’s history.
Keep your mind open. If you allow the possibility of extraterrestrials (ETs) both flying around space and hanging out here and there, now and then on earth, then this book outlines parameters in which interactions between ETs and humans may have been occurring at least since the Ice Ages. Based upon the author’s close reading of origin myths across many cultures, he compares similar dynamics between ETs and humans through the millennia. Are humans part alien? Von Daniken argues yes, effectively.
