Jul 21, Laurie rated it really liked it. I remember reading this in high school and thinking it was soooo cool. I still think it's pretty cool, but maybe I don't think about aliens as much as I did then. I have to say he raised some interesting points, but my main interest was that it is often too difficult for people to believe that ancient cultures were very sophisticated and able to create things from their imaginations in much the same way we do.
Hence, the idea that they were incapable of doing the things they obviously did, it mu I remember reading this in high school and thinking it was soooo cool. Hence, the idea that they were incapable of doing the things they obviously did, it must have been someone from space. Really, I am fascinated by this whole concept. It's easier to believe something ridiculous like alien visitation before the more likely explanation of regular Earth people having the ability to puzzle things out for themselves.

Just amazing. I recommend reading this for the fun factor more than anything.
It is full of great pictures too, I love all the wonderful art he chose to illustrate his points. Whether or not you believe in the alien influence concept, the works are amazing examples of ancient craftsmanship and imagination. Oct 07, Yigal Zur rated it liked it.

Better yet, watch the television show Ancient Aliens for a better-structured and more believable argument for the ancient aliens theory.

Chariots of the Gods
However, ater hours research I realized a lot of the myths and facts he was presenting were almost impossible to verify let alone find a credible source. His strong belief in their inability to think creatively or critically borders on racist in the terms he uses to describe these civilizations. This ardent belief of his hampers his arguments while making him look like an asshole. Is Chariot of the Gods worth the read? Absolutely not. Watch the television show Ancient Aliens if you're looking for information since the theories and information the show presents is much more credible.
If you do want to read Chariot of the Gods, I would recommend extensive research after each chapter. Come on. Admit you read it however long ago when it was on every bookshelf in the Western Hemisphere. Then you paw-pawed it. Yet you secretly hoped some of it was true.
Now with the series on the History Channel I thought I would find a used copy and read it again. But it is fun bullshit. And the TV series is actually interesting. It is a shame that Erich Von Daniken had to repeatedly ruin some good information with the single phrase "There can be no other explanation. Each time read it, I cringed. This phrase tries to cut off debate, stifles analysis, and generally hurts the credibility of the entire work. Execution of the battle plan is simplicity itself. First, you cite some presumably surprising fact. Next, you recount, in singularly unflattering terms, what's supposed to be the received explanation of that fact.
You then ask a how-can-this-be-possible?
Thus: "The Great Pyramid is an architectural marvel. It's supposed to have been built six thousand years ago by ignorant Egyptians using only slave labor. But how could puny, know-nothing terrestrials possibly have erected such an edifice employing only primitive Bronze Age technology? Von Daniken is a flim-flam artist who has made a personal fortune rolling suckers. Televised documentaries have aired his responses when the falsity of some of his claims has been demonstrated right before his eyes: he just goes "dumb" and refuses to acknowledge anything.
But Von Daniken has his groupies who, in common with the fans of Creation Science, have an apparently insatiable craving for pseudo-scientific drivel. I like his babble because it is fun. It is no wonder that people have strong feelings about this book. Those who can simply read a book, no matter the topic, and just listen to what the writer has to say, will obtain from this particular book just another good read and perhaps pass it along to someone else.
Daniken takes everything we have been taught about human nature, creationism, evolution, and the development of man and turns it on its head by simply suggesting an alternative explanation for how we came to be what we are and w It is no wonder that people have strong feelings about this book.
Daniken takes everything we have been taught about human nature, creationism, evolution, and the development of man and turns it on its head by simply suggesting an alternative explanation for how we came to be what we are and what we believe. Who says he is right? Even Daniken tells us that what he writes is yet another opinion, however fanciful we may find it. But what if he has a point?
