CHARIOTS OF THE GODS
Written by Swiss author Erich von Däniken, Chariots Of The Gods claimed to prove that aliens had visited Earth thousands of years ago. Von Däniken insists that religious texts, cave drawings, stone sculptures, pyramids and monuments of the great ancient civilizations should be viewed as evidence of this close encounter.
He affirms that the extraterrestrial visitors interfered in the genesis of Homo sapiens and changed the course of human history forever, with the promise that they would come back one day.
