Not only is von Däniken convinced that aliens visited Earth in the distant past, but he’s equally certain it will happen again in the very near future.
During the ‘Erich Von Daniken Legacy Night’ which celebrates 50 years of one of his bestseller books, Erich used a number of images, video clips, computer animations, and other crucial pieces of evidence in order to back up his claims that thousands of years ago, before written history, Earth was visited by beings, not from Earth. Now, he claims, our ‘makers’ will return since mankind is almost ready to finally meet them.
The concept behind Chariots and Ancient Aliens is simple: aliens visited our ancient ancestors and guided them, imparting knowledge and (depending on who at AlienCon you ask) the futuristic technology needed to build everything from the pyramids of Egypt to the giant head-shaped statues of Easter Island. Actually proving any of this without a major leap of faith is a little more difficult, but for thousands of people that clearly isn’t an issue, von Däniken included.
“I’m absolutely sure about this,” he says. “I have no doubt. I am sure we have the final proof. It’s not a question of mythology. It’s a question of the knowledge of what happened in ancient times. And I know a lot about it. “
The E.T.’s know about us because we are part of their DNA. The Bible speaks of the daughters of men having intercourse with these visitors, and many worldwide myths and legends repeat the same story. These stories always say the E.T.s will return to us.
Erich von Daniken claims that in the distant past, alien beings played an extremely important role in the development of modern civilization. According to the author, there are worldwide myths, legends
From a safe hiding-place, the inhabitants of the planet watch our space travellers, who wear strange hats with rods on their heads (helmets with antennae); they are amazed when the night is made bright as day (searchlights); they are terrified when the strangers rise effortlessly into the air (rocket-belts); they bury their heads in the ground again when weird unknown ‘animals’ soar in the air, droning, buzzing and snorting (helicopters, all-purpose vehicles),
I believe that at the moment we are under observation. The author added that this is based on conversations with very intelligent people, who have been told officially that UFOs are reality, and that we are being watched.
During the presentation, where Erich was presented with the Stella Citizen Award by Ancient Aliens TV regular Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, the author said that ancient texts like the Christian Bible, religious texts from India and others make reference to heaven which according to him is in fact nothing other than a reference to outer space. Von Daniken claims that the so-called angels were nothing more than alien visitors who came from elsewhere in the cosmos.
Now, after thousands of years have passed since the visitors touched down on Earth for the first time, we are approaching the time where society is ready to “meet” our alien cousins.
Furthermore, alien contact has become something that millions around the world are already expecting. Our scientific achievements and social acceptance as a result of constant “bombardment” by Hollywood movies and series about alien life in the universe have prepared us as a race to finally meet alien civilizations without causing social unrest.
