Storyline

According to ancient alien theorists, extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history. But how did this concept develop, and is there any evidence to support it? Ancient alien theory grew out of the centuries-old idea that life exists on other planets, and that humans and extraterrestrials have crossed paths before. The theme of human-alien interaction was thrust into the spotlight in the 1960s, driven by a wave of UFO sightings and popular films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. The space program played no small part in this as well: If mankind could travel to other planets, why couldn't extraterrestrials visit Earth? In 1968, the Swiss author Erich von Daniken published Chariots of the Gods?, which became an immediate bestseller.

A better explanation
28 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too read Von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods, and not knowing any better, thought it was a viable explanation for ancient advanced technology. That is, till I read Secrets of the Lost Races by Rene Noorbergen. In a nutshell, Noorbergen shows how evidence of advanced technology (ooparts, or out of place artifacts) is better explained by our ancestors being more technologically advanced than we are, and that the human race has actually degenerated since then, rather than 'evolved' to a higher state of being. Secrets of the Lost Races should still be available on Amazon, as well as used if you do a search. A great read.
