Overview

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance--the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth had been visited by aliens. This world-famous bestseller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eyes of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began--von Däniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Däniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendants of these galactic pioneers--and the archeological discoveries that prove it...
* An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
* Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
* Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
* A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
* A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes
Includes remarkable photos that document mankind's first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

    Should be classified as 'Fantasy'

    A classic of invented history, Erich von Daniken's "Chariots of the Gods" has about as much to do with science and reality as does the Lord of the Rings. It can be quite the entertaining read if only for the absurdity of its content. Von Daniken is apparently not familiar with proper research techniques or reasoning, pulling conclusions out of the air and making connections that could be described as frivolous at best. The level of non sequitur in this book would make an editor of the New Yorker blush.

    Overall it can be an enjoyable read, in the same way one might enjoy a 1950s sci-fi B-movie. But to treat it as science is laughable and intellectually indefensible. The book should be re-classified as Sci-Fi/Fantasy, where it deservedly belongs.

    Crazy

    The book does start out saying it is fiction. But if Erich von Daniken really believes what he is writing I think he is crazy. To insinuate that God is a space alien and not the creater of heaven and earth and man is at the top of the list of insane!

    Not science

    I don't know why this ebook is in the "Science and Nature" section, but it is not science. This work has been on the receiving end of numerous rebuttals and debunkings, including two entire books, Clifford Wilson's _Crash Go the Chariots_ and Ronald Story's _The Space God's Revealed_. Also, as Jason Colavito pointed out in a 2004 issue of _Skeptic_, much of von Danikan's work in this book can be traced directly back to the mythos created by H.P. Lovecraft in many of his books.
