Eyes of the Sphinx: The Newest Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact in Ancient Egypt

Overview

Twenty-eight years ago, Erich von Daniken first presented his theory of alien contact with the ancient world - a theory so incredible, yet so logical and convincing, that it has become part of a wide-ranging debate that continues to this day. His claims that an alien race helped create the pyramids of Egypt were based upon the ruins themselves.

Overview

Twenty-eight years ago, Erich von Daniken first presented his theory of alien contact with the ancient world - a theory so incredible, yet so logical and convincing, that it has become part of a wide-ranging debate that continues to this day. His claims that an alien race helped create the pyramids of Egypt were based upon the ruins themselves. And it is these ruins that now provide researchers with a never-ending source of clues - new discoveries, new revelations, new evidence that Earth was indeed colonized by an alien race... New research showing that the location and design of the pyramids were uniquely fit for preservation - something the Egyptians couldn't possibly have known; remains of the ships built by the Pharaohs and buried with them for travel in the afterlife - imitations of the ships they saw used by men from the sky; the most recent discoveries - hidden chambers and passageways, one of which ends at an ancient door. And behind the door is... the unknown; prehistoric bones that prove the existence of a worldwide cult that deformed children's skulls in imitations of the "gods" they had seen; and new interpretations of ancient writings - and new speculations on ancient mysteries.

The author of the 7-million-copy bestseller Chariots of the Gods? reveals startling new evidence of extraterrestrial contact with Earth. From undiscovered passageways to the world's first robot to ancient flying ships, this amazing evidence will add new spark to the old debate and fascinate a new generation with von Daniken's explosive theories.

    Captivating,until the end.

    Well,nothing like reading 3/4's of a book and get ripped right out of it and placed into a fur-ball. That's what occurs in Eyes of the Sphinx. To be engrossed with the topic at hand only to have it taken away from you by the author to further a professional agenda(justified or not) is at the very least annoying;write on the subject in an afterwords,OR..in a different book.
